Alien: Colonial Marines aka Total: Cluster Fuck.

No need to even write about it.

Aliens: Colonial Marines. Bad, bad game.

Aliens: Colonial Marines, easily. What a total shitshow from top to bottom.

Totally forgot about Aliens! My bad!

Diablo 3 is a bad Diablo game and a waste of money.

Try Diablo 2 or Path of Exile instead.

@triviaman09: The definition of a win state is also incredibly vague, and is different things to different people. Do MMORPGs really have a win state? You could say that leveling up or maybe completing a dungeon is a win state, but you never really "win" at an MMO. It just keeps on going. You never reach an end. Same goes for "old School" Minecraft, is that a game or not?

I agree that using "win states" to judge what isn't and isn't a game is useless. And yeah, I think the whole discussion really has no real merit: It's mostly a way to dismiss certain games from the discussion.

In MMORPGs you win or lose individual battles. Also, is old school minecraft a game? You can die in it. You can defeat or be defeated by monsters. It has game-y elements.

@guyincognito:

Do you disagree with the video I posted? That reflects my view on the subject pretty well.

I'm watching it. BTW, "baldness" is as hard to define as "game-iness", at some point you're obviously bald and at some point you're obviously not bald (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuum_fallacy). Just because there is a murky middle doesn't mean there is no clear definition. If "Gone Home" was obviously a game or not a game to me, I wouldn't post this poll.

@amyggen:

Adventure games had puzzles. Winning was solving the puzzle. Also in some adventure games you were able to die: In King's Quest 5 you died if you walked around the desert too long. (Is there a puzzle to solve in Gone Home? I haven't played the game.)

noun

a game played by electronically manipulating images produced by a computer program on a monitor or other display.

A video game is a *game*.
