    My wife is, to be honest, contemptuous and thinks I'm childish, and that I should be doing something "worthwhile" instead. Only a couple of my real world friends play to any great extent, and...

    @Gink they might enjoy Euro Truck Sim 2. It's often on sale and as well as the actual driving, which is very laid-back and enjoyable, you can build a trucking empire by buying and upgrading depots...

    Ads are transparent by their very nature aren't they, though? In all seriousness, this whole "journalistic ethics" thing is getting a bit out of hand, and I agree with your point that it is very hard...

    It seems to work that way. I managed to pay for Shadowrun Returns and Dragonfall by selling cards in the last sale. Odd, because I would have thought that during a sale more people would try to sell...

    Exactly. Social change comes about through individuals in a community or group collectively changing fundamental values, assumptions and behaviours. Depending on where someone is starting from this...

    Nail on the head. I've seen too many people trying to make a change fail because they preached, lectured, berated or shouted down their audience instead of engaging them, and I've seen negotiations...

    I too share your fear. I have stuff on Steam, GoG and Origin that I haven't even installed yet, stuff I've installed but haven't played, stuff I stopped playing after a bit and never went back to...

    I too very much appreciated the level-headed tone of the article. I'm glad it was long - this whole, sorry saga has a lot of intertwining threads that take time, effort and thought to disentangle....

    Good point. I'm a civil servant in real life. Not sure I'm that desperate to find out what my job would have been like in an early-80s totalitarian state (like Thatcher's Britain boom boom).

    Please help me not buy:

    Papers Please
    Space Hulk (plus the rest of the Humble Weekly)
    Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

    My wallet will be most grateful, as will my increasingly cramped HDD.

    I used to play Warhammer Online and WoW and it was exactly the same - the amount of passion a small buff, nerf or mechanical change could arouse was a bit disconcerting. What I also find odd is that...

    I tend to agree that my feelings of defensiveness (and in part the reason that I'm much more of a lurker than a poster on this and other forums) are because I read a lot more about games than I do...

    Forgot earlier - mobile gaming being a minefield of the worst kind of F2P exploitation and invasive advertising, Honest Android Games is worth checking out. It lists games that are either free of...

    Definitely look out for Humble Android Bundles, that's where I get most of my games. Meanwhile, here's a few specific recommendations - just stuff that I like, so take with a pinch of salt ;-).

    Just getting into E.Y.E:Divine Cybermancy after picking it up in the sales. I have to say I'm loving it so far, something about the art style, fast pace and bonkers story has really got under my...

    Glad it helped - was waiting for a chance to jot down my thoughts in a forum. Maybe the intent is to leave the WIT until after the patch at the end of the month to see if IDGI can redeem themselves...

    I don't have any fundamental problems with linear games that want to tell a particular story. Where I think it goes wrong is when the gameplay is rote such as through bad level design or where you've...

    I don't mind DLC too much - I can make my own mind up whether each particular one for a given game is worth it or not. I miss old-fashioned expansions to some extent, and it would be nice to see...

    Backed it - it looks like the combat engine could be huge fun, and doing something genuinely different to other games. And I can deal with the deferred gratification at my age hehe.
