SimCity completely and you can all burn me at the stake Gone Home - That game is (awful) EDIT I look back and that is harsh it just presented itself as something different I came away disappointed, the atmosphere Kills for like the first 10mins then it all falls away to (spoilers) a story of teenage melodrama and bad life choices because of course it was a good idea and a happy ending for her far to young sister to have ran off to god knows where with some edgy girl that will probably end badly and leave her stranded or crawling back to a home that will have almost certainly Completely fallen apart by then because her parents will split from the extra pressure of her missing. Also the puzzles were shit and much like the atmosphere I figured out her sister was gay and ran away in those first 10mins and that just sort of ruined the experience for me.
Have you ever played Total War? Bodies never disappear during a battle. Sometimes I feel real bad surveying a battlefield looking at all the little fake computer men I marched off to their deaths, getting chopped up by swords, blown up by canons, shot with arrows and muskets, and trampled by horses.
Maybe I play too much Total War.
One of my favorite things about that series is being able to go back to where "battles" took place and seeing the horrid loss of computer generated life.
I played 8 hours and just could not proceed, Beautiful? Yes. Fun? Fuck my soul. Also refuse to play 20+ hours of a game to get to "the good part"
People have really short memories these days and tend to forget that without Xbox Live Arcade a lot of these indie devs would have never published their games in the first place. Sony certainly wasn't offering anything at the time. Jonathan Blow can talk all the smack he wants about Microsoft these days, but it's thanks to their program and initiative into indie gaming during the early times of 360 that he enjoys the opportunities that he has today.
Just because they gave that industry a jump start doesn't mean that they get to perform Underhanded business practices, and get away with it? So if I created a product I am allowed to take advantage of my customers? That does not even fully work in analogy because Microsoft isn't making any of this they are basically indieWalmart refusing to stock a can of beans because Target is getting it first.
@evilsbane: It's funny, because it's a thread about being able to take a joke, and you can't seem to!
Is it? So you tried to make a joke and people misunderstood Huh funny world.
