I find myself in a weird situation from time to time. My younger brother loves zombies and keeps trying to get me to buy Resident Evil 6 and Walking Dead Survival Instinct. "You should get Walking Dead Survival Instinct," he says, to which I respond: "No." "Why?" He asks. "Because it's a bad game," I answer. "How?" he replies.
I find myself at a loss for words.
This has happened to me a few times, like when Force Unleashed came out and I had to try to explain to friends who were really excited for it why it wasn't that good of a game. Or when I told my dad about Aliens Colonial Marines and how it was trash and he asked for more specifics and I didn't know how to articulate it.
How do you explain to someone who doesn't know games very well why a game is bad?
