The game that 's really ...

The game that 's really missing from this list, in my opinion, is Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver. In Soul Reaver if you die you get transported to a parallel realm with more or less the same level layout, and you essentially have to work your way back to the ...

I 'd argue it 's worse, because there are real costs associated with a refund like credit card fees paid by the retailer on the original purchase that I would assume are not returned by Visa or Mastercard .

I 'm having a lot of fun playing it. So are a lot of other people I know. The angry people will always seem like they outnumber the happy people because the happy people are too busy enjoying the game to spend all day online arguing about it.

I think there 's an ...

I think there 's an explanation for people saying they value story despite the fact that most don 't finish games. When we hear story we think narrative , but I 'm not sure that 's what players are necessarily looking for though some clearly are, like players of The ...

I think people should play ...

I think people should play whatever games they get the most enjoyment out of, so if the OP prefers mobile games to console or PC games that 's cool. But this article highlights why I hate the idea of friction , which is one of those over-used tech-y buzz words ...

I definitely think asking whether a game is engaging is usually a better question than whether it 's fun . I wouldn 't describe Papers, Please as fun , but I was highly engaged as I played through it.

Sounds like you 're doing some really interesting stuff, and much more in-depth time management than any RPG I can think of. I do think there are some examples of RPGs that play with time in a bit less detail though. r n r nThe passage of time in Fable ...

Does anyone know what the ...

Does anyone know what the market penetration of 4K TVs is I 'd expect it to be higher among console gamers than the general public, but I can 't find any good info on how many people actually have 4K TVs. Seems like you 'd want the adoption rate of ...

I agree that games like Super Mario Bros. were good at teaching the player through things like visuals don 't jump on spiked enemies, etc. , but when we 're talking about old games, it 's worth remembering that players were provided with an instruction manual that they were expected ...

That 's like responding to Black Lives Matter with All lives matter It 's an attempt to use neutral-sounding language to minimise a fairly specific problem in this case, targeted harassment of vocal women in gaming, typically those who identify as feminists, by people who associate with the label Gamergate ...
