    Addendum, because someone saw this and came up with some pointed replies off the forum, and I get prickly about this stuff so eh, what the hell:

  2. On writing (Such rant. Very word count. Seriously, you've been warned)

    I've been meaning to start a thread like this for ages, and kept holding back, which was probably the best course of action but a certain someone's everything-is-subjective, why-are-you-being-mean...

    There we go. God knows I'm not the biggest fan of BoI, but on a purely technical level, at least, its art is fine. If anything I prefer it over Purpose, since - going by screenshots, at least - the...

    I will also recommend Solaris - a masterpiece - and the Zones of Thought books - the third of those still wasn't on Kindle last I checked, so I've never read it, but the first two are beyond...

    From everything I was told I assumed the jungle was going to be full of stuff, and that stuff was going to be constantly blowing up. This seemed a reasonable conclusion. It was not, or at least what...

    I went for MGS V, but I am still interested in this. Among other things it looks as if even if it does share a lot of Just Cause 2's DNA, I might not mind so much - charging around an empty desert...

    Perhaps related: "Everything should be mad, because videogames" is another thing people (press, fans) say which I can't bloody stand. Morrowind is "mad". It's also utterly freaking boring, because...

    Freedom Fighters was indeed excellent - terrific gunplay, just the right amount of strategy-lite, took its dumb plot just seriously enough (and had some pretty funny jokes in the background),...

    I admit I played Penumbra some time after it originally appeared, but older PC titles and past-generation console titles still hold up much better for my money, both in terms of their tech and their...

    I want to like Frictional, but I'm not sure I do. I played Amnesia for an hour or so and got irritated by it more than anything else - I simply wasn't convinced it was anything more than YouTube...

    It isn't odd at all. They have Pro Evo, which just recently went F2P on mobile. No-one (who counts) cares about any of those other games, they're not making millions and it's not worth paying to...

    Put crudely, Bayonetta just button-mashing is shit compared to playing Bayonetta properly and memorising every single combo. I appreciate what they did with the super-easy mode in terms of...

    Vanquish is every Call of Duty rolled into one and turned up to eleven, with both a charming sense of self-awareness and a commitment to treating it like SERIOUS BUSINESS. It's got terrific art...

    Vanquish.

    EDIT: RPS are plainly doing listicles because it's a proven way to get traffic/people posting, and there's no point in pretending they're above that sort of thing. Also, nebulous...

    You are being elitist if you equate that with "not very good". I have no interest in playing Super Hexagon, but that doesn't mean I can't see why people rave about it, or that I think their praise is...

    Of course it's relevant.

    You are saying people should make a moral stand against microtransactions because the point of them is so we can have a cheaper game and so adding them to a game that...

    They all seem to be licensed through MangaGamer, who primarily do adult/porn VNs, AFAIK. They have one or two all-ages/censored titles on Steam (like eden* that I just recently finished), and even...

    On the one hand, not a fan of the whole $60 GAMES WITH MICROTRANSACTIONS ARE THE WORK OF THE DEVIL schtick; my love for Assassin's Creed: Unity says sod right off. Barely noticed they were there,...

    Not sure they'd make for good sculptures (though feel free to tell I'm wrong, OP) but those are both great examples, Kad, IMO. (And I own both seasons of WD and both Bethesda Fallouts, so I'm kicking...

    Haha, yes, if we're going with collectibles that's a good one. Kind of silly, and seeing that logo on them seems just a bit dated now, but I can still remember the feeling of picking those up and I...

    ICO still looks great today, even with the ancient tech it's using, but the levels were pretty barren back then and they only look more so now. I remember things like the pigeons, but those are...

    Yeah, Gone Home has a lot of props around, although much as I liked the game I didn't really find any of them especially visually pleasing. Not my thread, but I'm not sure weapons should really count...

    I guessed the errors would be patched, but I'm not saying it just to nitpick - it really is about the only time a game has actively shocked me with how substandard the text was, even surpassing YOU...

    Returns (the campaign is actually called Dead Man's Switch) is not related to Dragonfall and the writing is terrible. Dull, devoid of character, idiot plot twists and when it came out (I don't know...
