Yeah my mom has always insisted on getting things for everyone, so I ask for a couple late-year releases (usually ends up being Nintendo games). No one enjoys having to guess what someone would like, especially if it's an adult with expendable income.
That said, I fully admit that I still enjoy unwrapping gifts.
For Sequel is in a Different Genre delete the alias "Different Genre Spinoff". There is already a whole Spin-Off page that includes games in different genres, and it would be good to discourage overlap.
I would understand if the game's actual mechanical design relied on the physical presence of other players, but I can't see that it does. It's one thing to want your game to be played in the most enjoyable way, but it's another thing to totally exclude people from enjoying it based only on their circumstances.
If a console game, say Assassin's Creed, was ported to PC and didn't have any mouse/keyboard support, because it was only "meant" to be played with a controller, that would be shitty. Even though much less work is involved in that scenario, it's the same principle.
Full disclosure, I am only partway through Ep 4 of Walking Dead, but I'll say this anyway: WD is good, but it just doesn't have the fundamentals down that well. Saints Row is more deft with its comedy than WD is with its drama, and it has a hell of a gameplay component too. If you're looking for the one that will be remembered as a landmark game in 5 years, of course it's WD, but that doesn't mean it's better.
