    I used to press a number of random keys on my keyboard and then add enough vowels for it to be pronounceable.

    So, for example: akjhsdf would become Akejhasdifu (or Akejhasdifa if the character was...

    I assume this list is referring to games released on the PC platform, and not just PC exclusives (that would narrow the field significantly):

    Batman Arkham Asylum

    Only telling you what Steam tells me. I don't play a lot of games, but when I do, I play the hell out of them. Interesting side note, about 3/4 of those hours were not complete play-throughs.

    I've...

    It took two posts for this thread to be completely derailed. Must be a record.

    A polite way of saying STFU.

    The Tetris thing was a joke. Please don't put words in my mouth. Stories are present in games in the simplest sense. "Why does this game play out this way instead of...

    I had always figured that you take out what you put in with fictional characters, to evoke a memory or a feeling that is close to one's heart, like a beautiful painting or song.

    Over the years there have been games that left a lasting impression on me. Mass Effect, Half-Life, Everquest, Goldeneye, etc. left behind memories that I'll never forget. The game that sticks close...

    Saw Lincoln. Not nearly as boring as I was expecting. Tommy Lee Jones does a great performance. Daniel Day Lewis's Lincoln comes across as a folksy wierdo that always seems to be waiting to tell some...

    I suppose I could go on and on about Mass Effect and how the various characters reminded me of various family members of mine. Thane reminded how painful it must have been for my dad to be away so...

    Game needs both there champ. Think about Tetris for example. The game arguably has no story, but that is the result of not looking close enough. The game's story can be summed up in one word:...

    In Mass Effect 2 and 3 Samara made me think about stuff. Important stuff, like how I relate to my mom. That gal sacrificed so much for her daughters it made me cry; and reminded me how much my mom...

    Maybe I'm just not used to the type of gameplay, but I found the difficulty of this game to be absolutely brutal. On the first mission after the tutorial half of my squad died. Subsequent to that, I...

    A good story. This can either be supplied by the game itself, like the adventures of the heroic mute, Gordon Freeman. Then again, if the game supplies the tools for me to make an awesome story,...

    Tried to read all the posts up to this point, but when people veered off into defining games I sort of zoned out. Here's my two cents:

    All games have a narrative or at the very least, a...

    Especially considering that McGee himself actually posts in it. Rather humorous that he thought that people would start being civil after he made his first post.

    Dragon Age: Origins. The story was interesting, but the wild swings in the difficulty of the combat was frustrating and I quit 1/3 of the way through.

    Also, in the same vein, Mass Effect (though...

    Resident Evil 4 was the first Resident Evil title that I played from start to finish. I played a bit of the REmake and RE 0, but never finished them. The story was cheezy like a 90's action movie,...

    Hammill has always been the top Joker for me, Ledger being a close second. The great thing about the character is there's so many ways of interpreting him that aren't technically incorrect.
