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 ...

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, ...

Definitely less key boss factors. When it 's really just a fight between an enemy and not so much about the weight of the battle or the environment, then it would be more of a mini-boss. For a boss fight to really pop, it needs to be built around at ...

The point about why zone generation and not level generation is considered macro has to do with how the game is generating the content. r n r nIf you look at Spelunky 's or any game 's algorithm for generating levels/worlds, the system is built on constraints dependent on the ...

Here 's another tip for Twitch Streamers. If you go to their profile and check their history, it should show the last 14 or so days of streaming. If there is no prior history there, then that means they haven 't streamed anything in over 2 weeks. The next thing ...
