Necessary? Well, for me, yes. I really enjoy watching Markiplier play through them and didn't want it to stop on the third one. I look forward to it! :)
I think that's a really interesting perspective. I think a lot of people forget that some of these youtube personalities are legitimately fun and entertaining to watch, and games like this provide them with more material to entertain you with.
We all need something to keep us from thinking that we're all gonna die one day, right? Whether it be by excelling at a career, drinking 'til we're blind, or shouting at fake animatronic puppets on a computer screen.
I submit that Five Nights at Freddy's is as necessary as rum, McDonald's, and Fast & Furious sequels.
So, PS1 memory cards used to have cute little pictures that represented an individual game's save data, and if you don't look too close, Squall Leonhart and and Leon Kennedy have somewhat similar faces.
I wanted to clear space on my memory card to make room for something, so I was going to delete some Resident Evil 2 saves. Turns out they were my Final Fantasy VIII saves. Dozens of hours, gone.
That Suicide Squad animated film that came to DVD a little while ago seemed like it was directly aimed at teenagers. It had little to say other than "HEY GUYS DO YOU LIKE SEMI-NUDE HOT CHICKS, SWEAR WORDS, AND EXPLOSIONS? WE HAVE SO MANY OF THOSE!!!" Somehow I get the feeling this movie is aiming itself at the same audience, and that audience would probably think those tattoos are pretty cool.
I watched most of this stream and really enjoyed it. I especially liked it when Drew read out my silly bit about Alex, but I think that's a sign that I am a sad creature that needs attention to feel validated.
I downloaded HotS last night and ran through the tutorial this morning. It seems really cool, and way less daunting than other MOBAs (though I've never actually tried one) but it still doesn't seem like the sort of thing I'd sink any real time into.
Anyway, I guess it's time to start workshopping names for a potential Heroes-based Premium feature?
The Daily HotS? HerDrews of the Storm? HoTs to TroTs?
I recently decided I was going to go through all three Jak games - loved all three of them when they were new. Got 100% again in Jak & Daxter, and I started running through Jak 2... until I got to the part where you have to throw bombs into pipes while doing hoverboard tricks, and now I don't think I like Jak 2 anymore. I don't know how younger me ever finished that mission.
