My favorite is a free mod created by one guy. Day Z is absolutely fantastic. As good a job as telltale did making a walking dead game, i think Day Z captures the universe even better.The constant desperation created by the lack of supplies is incredible. Its the only game I've ever just hidden and observed someone before revealing myself, knowing that anyone can be hostile in the wrong circumstances. I cant wait for the retail release.
@PandaBear: i hate correcting people over stuff like this but its davies, not davis. I also enjoy season 3 the most, but that doesnt matter. also, i completely agree abot the specials. Anyway, if you have any interest in doctor who check out the episode blink in season 3. its a brilliant moffat episode that makes a good starting point because the episode is purely from the perspective of someone who doesnt know the doctor. I have used the episode several times as a gateway drug of sorts to get people into doctor who.
So if you are a fan of the series, should you not review it; you'd be too prone to be unfairly praising?
In that case, you'd be the perfect person to review it, because you'd represent the opinion of those who are most likely to be interested in it. It's the same as someone who likes fighting games reviewing the newest Street Fighter or someone who likes JRPGs reviewing Final Fantasy.
Whereas if you don't like it to begin with, you clearly don't represent the opinions of people who'd be interested.
i do not think your examples are fair. you say someone who is a fan of fighting games should review street fighter. i agree with that part. i dont think a fan of the street fighter series specifically should review every new street fighter game. jeff not being a fan of transformers gives me, someone who doesnt like transformers, but likes third person shooters, a better opinion on if i should buy it. he is able to say if he likes the game or not coming from a similar point of view as my own.
