    Fair enough, but I think a lot of people - at least, vocal internet people - take any expression of displeasure as "foaming at the mouth and angrily shouting", unless you cover yourself with "But...

    With gameplay, it's highly debatable. There's very little if anything I "hate" based simply on what you do, in a mechanical sense. I've got no interest in ever playing Flappy Bird but I can happily...

    Yup. Sure, people voted for Brexit because they were suffering, same as people will vote for Trump. Doesn't change that Brexit will not alleviate their suffering - same as Trump won't do a thing,...

    The PC Master Race think you're only a True Gamer if you play games which appear on the One True Platform with the god-given controls of mouse and keyboard and all the resomolutions and such, and...

    Haha, perhaps.

    Seriously, though, Raiden did at least become markedly self-aware in MGS 4, and then even more so in Revengeance (which is deeper into affectionate self-parody than Kojima ever...

    Easy way of telling: if you think you can't tell a serious story about people who like to dress up in rubber costumes and fight crime, then it's you.

    The first nuTomb Raider was crap, though....

    Well, if we're doing that:

    Journey - gorgeous, transcendent, blah blah blah, but pretty much just the once. Diminishing returns set in very fast once you realise it's kinda short and not really...

    It's neat that more people get to see the PC does not have All the Games, and that uber-hardware, more resomolutions etc. doesn't automatically make it the One True Platform, but I don't do...

    Sure it's a win button. A win button that never stops being hysterically funny.

    And seriously, as Tikey said, it's merely another part of the puzzle - how to spirit everyone away without being...

    I don't know what you're referring to by Phenomeno, but you briefly made me think there was an anime of the light novel series/the VN, you bastard. ;_;

    Not sure if it's any help, but Launchbox is very good, IMO. I have it running a number of different emulators and whatever PC games I don't have installed under a client, and it can technically be...

    Am I not making this clear enough? If any story uses that particular narrative device as a twist, I believe there's a really, really high chance it's not going to be a very good story. I didn't say I...

    I rarely have much money, I don't pirate movies any more, and I was curious to know what the explanation was because of all the negative press on one side and rose-tinted "Lesbian subtext in a Ghibli...

    I would easily rate the visuals as some of the most mind-blowing I've ever seen. Very, very few films today can make CG look like hand-drawn watercolour sketches and Yamadas was doing it...

    The final battle and its climactic "Gotcha!" moment is amazing; the very last scene that closes the book... yeah, not so much. Lazy "Oh, right, that was a thing I foreshadowed at some point" that...

    Well, you implied the Fionavar books were cool once, and you didn't make it clear you'd read his other books. :P

    I don't agree Tigana leaves everything else in the dust, though. It's clearly the...
