A re-post from my gaming blog at http://jamessadler.wordpress.com. A look at online versus localized play and why I think the industry is missing something huge.

This was kind of the same feeling I had when playing The Last of Us. Personally the horror aspect of the game was unnecessary compared the to general survival needs of the story. Kudos to the team. We need more games that take a hard look at the human condition. ...
