    The Last of Us was very linear but it was handled in a very good way. It always felt like you were exploring towards your goal, rather than being railroaded there.

    Mass Effect 3?

    Although I initially wasn't too happy with being railroaded into plying the online multiplayer, I ended up rather enjoying it. Much more than I thought I would.

    Just finished this. What a great game. With just two minor flaws, in my opinion.

    The boss fights seemed a little arbitrary as to which ones kill you and which don't, depending on build, general...

    Sif was a great boss fight, but because of the order I did things in, I had had no contact with him before the fight. So to me I touched a giant sword, a wolf then turned up and fought me for no...

    I'm not sure I'd say the plot is great. The lore, setting, richness of the in-game world and so one are pretty great, but the plot itself is pretty forgettable.

    Going back to an Amiga game, the indoor FPS sections of Jurassic Park used to scare me. Partially because of the context sensitive music, where it changed to a more intense music when there was a...

    I quite like this card shenanigan business. Fairly non intrusive and it's nudging me back into playing some games (Gratuitous Space Battles) I might not otherwise have replayed.

    One of the best compromises was the 1999 Aliens vs Predators. No saving within each level but progress was saved between levels. True tension but all progress wasn't lost upon death.

    I can't remember the figures off hand but the Harry Potter stuff still skewed towards boys, more so than you'd think considering the wide appeal of the books/films.

    I think it's about as complicated (roughly) as the other stuff for that age group. It's less complicated than the Star Wars for example, but the Star Wars stuff is aimed a bit older.

    Is it the objectification causing that though? I would have thought it was more homophobia, denigration of masculinity etc.

    Plus Little Big Planet 1+2. If this game was on the PC we would never have heard the end of it. A gorgeous, fun game with extensive user creation? That's a solid win in anyone's book.
