I hate to say it, ...

I hate to say it, but I disagree with the premise of the entire article. r n r nThere 's a big difference between combat-heavy and defending yourself. The psychological response of flight or fight is a major part of horror. Without those options, the game becomes one-note and mechanical. ...

Re: Games built on real ...

Re: Games built on real world attacks/timers, I hate those games by the fact that they demand your time. The last one I played was Marvel Puzzle Quest for a summer and when I realized that the only way I would be able to make any real progress through the ...

I know the feeling too. ...

I know the feeling too. I 'm horrible when it comes to memorizing button combos and such, but a game that has a slower pace to it works better for me. I 'm really interested to see how Injustice 2 is going to handle things and what the competitive market ...

I think that 's a good point. When it comes to video games, a lot of the story is already fragmented due to the gameplay, so there 's less detail there. With a lot of book adaptations, we 've seen cases where characters and even entire plot lines are cut ...

No Logical Journey of the Zoombinis makes this list invalid imo : It was one of the first games to teach children critical thinking, featured achievements to motivate and had different puzzles built around different thought processes and challenge.

Good point, it 's been way too long since I played Ico. I haven 't tried the Last Guardian yet, but it 's on my list at some point. I 've added an addendum regarding ICO and RE 4 as I missed it the first time.

I think I remember the abominations but never spent the money to get any of them. It sounds like one of the major hurdles for e-sports play is that you really have to put all your eggs in one basket if you want a F2P game to also be e-sports ...

I haven 't heard too much of Pokemon Go since the first two weeks or so of success. It seems like it 's all but disappeared around here. I know they just released an update I heard, but I 'm not seeing the same level of interest there was at ...

Good post Ramin. The idea of making the game intentionally frustrating is one of the bigger criticisms of F2P games I think from the core audience. It 's also another sign of making a game built around short term profits instead of creating something viable and long-term. r n r ...

That 's a good point about poker and I believe we talked about that on one of our casts. Poker is a game that is both about luck, IE: what everybody gets, and skill: Reading the other players, playing mind-games,etc. r n r nIt 's similar to the XCOM example, ...
