    Any of these are acceptable, but I'll go with option 4) Believe that games like MGS5 and Assassin's Creed: Unity could have been released as they stood without microtransactions and still made a...

    Well, in cases such as that it doesn't seem worth assessing the "writing" at all. I wouldn't, for instance, bother assessing the "quality of writing" of the 2 sentences of background text on my Lord...

    I don't really know what counts. I tend to consider "action game" to mean "anything that isn't essentially turn-based or active-pause-based". I imagine this is much broader than most people would...

    Euro Truck Simulator 2 while listening to Test Match Special is the only thing like this I'd do. When playing any other game I devote too much attention to the game to really pay attention to...

    The obvious candidates are board/card game adaptations that are first implemented on mobile and then brought to PC. I suppose you can argue that these don't count because the mobile version is also a...

    I don't think proposing a boycott is particularly reasonable---there are people who are mostly immune to paying for microtransactions and/or won't play the particular mode anyway, and it's...

    Even if there was a microtransaction system that literally did not affect half of the players at all, I'd still feel uncomfortable if I was in the lucky half.

    We should never accept microtransactions in full-price games. Think of why we accept microtransactions in f2p or very cheap games. The only reason we accept these is because they mean getting a...

    Gamebook Adventures are decent gamebooks, but the combat system is absolute bobbins. Assassin is one of the better ones, in my opinion. I haven't tried Curse yet.

    1) It might be relevant to the backstory/character concept you want to try, which then feeds into an RPG through the choices you make in choice situations.

    Card games are usually good for this.

    Also, I like Shadow of Mordor for this sort of thing, I can just drop in and kill orcs until I feel like doing something else.

    You're right that Retribution isn't really up to much.

    Completely wrong about SpellForce, of course.

    First PC game I played was some Star Trek game at a friend's, I think. We didn't have a PC for a long time, so the first PC game I played at home was Civilization 2.

    The concept of a Player Character is not the concept of an embodiment of yourself. I mean, it can be if that's what you want, but it also does not have to be, and usually won't be.

    Apart from gamebooks, none of those feature the concept of a Player Character, so this is a broadly irrelevant question. A more fruitful comparison is with pen-and-paper roleplaying games, in which...

    I don't find it too bad, my strategy is to check the new releases every couple of days. You can filter most of the games out just by hovering over them. Of what remains, I'll take a quick look and if...

    Mostly Magic: Duels with a switch to Ziggurat and Shadow of Mordor when I just want some mindless fun. And Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, as usual.

    Hardest difficulty in Final Liberation is fun. It decided to give the enemy Fighta-Bommerz before I had the chance to purchase AA. All the other battles so far have been reasonably fair, but that was...

    I'm rather looking forward to having a go at Sorcerer King at some point, although I have enough games for the moment. I thought the Fallen Enchantress games were good fun, of course.
