I like many of the games you 've listed, but I would not say their writing is on the same level of quality as most novels I read or films I watch, with the possible exception of The Walking Dead, which does have some genuinely good writing notably, it 's ...

The job of a journalist ...

The job of a journalist isn 't to promote, it 's to write interesting and truthful things about their subject matter. Sometimes truthful and interesting things are negative. A writer who shies away from writing things that are true and important just because they 're negative isn 't a journalist, ...

It would be impossible to know if it reduced binge playing because the game has always had the feature. There 's no control group to test against.

This assumes that the choice ...

This assumes that the choice to pre-order is value neutral, but it 's not. The culture of pre-ordering affects devs and gamers alike. Because stores will often choose which games to stock and in what quantities on the basis of pre-orders, developers come under pressure to heavily push pre-orders, which ...

This seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen. The Framerate Police group tracks something that 's more or less objective: what framerate a game runs at. If a game is locked to 30 FPS, it 's locked to 30 FPS. But what does or does not count as a scam ...

I suspect Alexandre is right. Whatever amount of luck is involved in a developer 's first success is probably significantly lessened for subsequent successes for exactly the reasons you 've mentioned.

It is difficult for me to imagine that a board game Kickstarter that raised 68 more than its initial goal was unable to fulfill its rewards for any reason other than malpractice. Presumably the game was already designed, and with a board game the costs are relatively fixed unlike a ...

Data isn 't really objective in the sense that most people intend it to mean. Data is always subject to the biases of the people who set out to collect or use it. What data to collect, how to collect it, why to collect it, how to interpret it . ...
