    I wonder if the levels being broken up into smaller areas is because of the developers keeping the xbox 360 and the ps3 in mind, or if the new consoles can't handle big levels either.

    After playing nine hours of Thief, I can say I like it. I think it's a better Thief game than Deadly Shadows, which is the thief game it feels most similar to. This is probably the first game of the...

    I've played about an hour of Thief. The tutorial mission does not make a good impression. You have to follow your obnoxious apprentice, and gameplay is frequently interrupted by cutscenes. Initially,...

    Also, did anyone get a Quake vibe from the Undead Burg? One of my favorite areas in a video game.

    This is the best we've seen. There's hope. Really, this game has gotten too much bad press from nitpicky fans. I would've preferred a straight-up remake of The Dark Project, just as I would've...

    Gone Home used Riot Grrrl music very well. Not really a fan of the genre, but the use of it added authenticity to the game.

    Also Prey's abduction scene, when Don't Fear the Reaper kicks on. The...

    Hell is pretty cool, or at least it was back when I played Doom 3 in 2004. The game could've used some cutting. Too many monster closets, not enough pure carnage or gibs, likely because the PCs of...

    Just finished The Swapper. A great game, mentally-challenging, unique art direction, interesting story. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good, cheap game.

    If I had to pick one game out of the last three years that everybody has to play, it would be Dark Souls. And I would be a sadist. But I would do it anyway.

    They are different in that they are interactive, however, that doesn't explain the lower completion rate (which is entirely based off of a half-remembered Steam statistic of one game).
