Have You Played… Neverwinter Nights?

Neverwinter Nights is a Dungeons & Dragons RPG from the early 2000s and it very handily got an enhanced edition last year. What timing! There’s a sequel where you have prettier character models, but I still prefer the first one. This is party because I like complex RPGs, but mostly because of Aribeth.

Feature: A sad tale of a mother scorned

Have You Played… Dark Souls III?

It was inevitable that this would feature in a Have You Played article. Dark Souls III heralded the end of the wildly popular trilogy of punishing games, and it was the culmination of everything From Software learned over the Souls years. But of course, you probably knew that. You probably don't know, however, that according to the deep and secret lore of Dark Souls 3, one…

Feature: Match 3 genres

Have You Played… Ironcast?

I like doing these HYPs. Not just as a break from guides writing, but because it forces me to look at the games gathering dust in my Steam library. It prompts me to load up one of those games again for the first time in perhaps years, and to rediscover the joy of - for example - stomping across Southern England in my gargantuan but…

Have You Played… Among the Sleep?

When I first heard about Krillbite's Among the Sleep, I was instantly intrigued. A first-person horror game from the perspective of a two-year-old toddler? Where and when can I play it? You see, I'm not usually very good with horror games. Matthew and I screamed ourselves silly when playing P.T, and I generally get quite stressed out when things are chasing me down dark hallways.…

Feature: Also what I call my washing basket

Have You Played… Layers Of Fear?

Remember when P.T. came out on the PS4 and everyone went wild for it, because Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima had made the scariest thing ever? And then Konami cancelled Silent Hills and removed P.T. from the PlayStation store? Well, if you’re hankering for a version of P.T. about an obsessive artist making a painting from bits of his dead wife, then boy, do…

Have you played… Ghost Master?

Back before the world had entirely given up on high concept management games (and before they were reborn years later) Ghost Master was part of the last dribble of attempts to wrench the genre out of its tycoon-clone funk. A sort of Dungeon Keeper-Sims hybrid, it casts you as some kind of spectral overlord, working out how and where best to deploy assorted comic spirits…

Have You Played… Fun School Special – Paint & Create?

"Hello my name is Brendan. When I come home from school I eat toast. I like to sing and kick my brothers and sisters in the shins. My brothers and sisters are smelly but OK. Some times we like to paint. But we do not like the real paint. No. We like the paint on the computer. It does not get on your hands and…

Have You Played… Streets of Rage 2?

Streets of Rage 2 was one of the Sega Mega Drive's most revered games but you can get it on Steam these days. It first came during a period when arcades had a lot of similar beat 'em ups, from those based in cities fighting thugs, to fantasy and futuristic settings. There were licensed games based on cartoons such as The Simpsons and Teenage Mutant Ninja…

Feature: Cool as a cubecumber

Have You Played… Qbeh-1: The Atlas Cube?

If Minecraft had been a chilled out puzzle platformer instead of a chilled out survival-esque sandbox, it would probably look a lot like Qbeh-1: The Atlas Cube. Accompanied by the same kind of easy-going, zen-like tunes as its voxel cousin, Qbeh-1 delights in the simple pleasures of collecting a bunch of blocks and using them to create makeshift bridges and steps in order to reach…

Feature: Get a bit of colour in ya

Have You Played… Hue?

Hue is an delightful puzzle game which is incredibly bright and colourful (unsurprisingly), where you progress by changing the colour of the background. At its core it’s quite a sad game. You’re searching for your missing mother, and you uncover her story as you go. This takes you through various themes of love, loss, remorse, and existence. It might be sad, but damn it’s beautiful.

Feature: #interactiveTV #betterthanbandersnatch

Have You Played… #WarGames?

Before Bandersnatch, there was Sam 'Her Story' Barlow's #WarGames. You may well have never heard of the latter, as this interactive TV-like-game came out rather quietly early last year and didn't have the big ho-ha of being on Netflix or associated with one of the biggest TV shows on the planet. But if you thought Bandersnatch was the pinnacle of modern interactive entertainment, I'd argue…

Feature: That time Game Freak made something other than Pokemon

Have You Played… Tembo The Badass Elephant?

Tembo the Badass Elephant is possibly one of the greatest names in the history of videogames. It instantly conveys everything you need to know about the game and perfectly encapsulates whether you're going to like it or not. He's Tembo. He's an elephant. And he's a BADASS. In my books, that's a big trunks up.

Have You Played… Little Big Adventure?

Little Big Adventure (known in the US by the uninspired name of "Relentless") is perhaps where my love for PC gaming truly started and one of the first games I completed. We got our first computer with Windows 95 a couple of years after this game first graced MS-DOS, and we had to quit Windows every time just to get it to run, but memories…
