    The Assassin's Creed stuff made me think that I should give Origins a shot. I haven't played since IV and I was pretty much done before playing that game. I only played it because so many people prai...

  • insomniak08 posted a message in the forum topic Is GiantBomb becoming too negative?. on the General Discussion board

    For me personally, I did not find their attitudes to be overly negative. I mostly agreed with their analysis. The only 2 games that were in this conference that I have even a modicum of interest in i...

  • insomniak08 posted a message in the forum topic Why do you play the video games?. on the General Discussion board

    Different games for different reasons. "Fun" is kind of an all-ecompassing term that sort of fits the bill. Or maybe "entertainment" is a better choice. But those aren't always entirely fitting. Like...

  • insomniak08 posted a message in the forum topic Where does Breath of the Wild rank on your all time SP game list?. on the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild board

    Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Great flick if you are a fan of Harry Potter. I understand that glaring logical inconsistencies are too much for some but if you can ignore them it is a real...

    @topcyclist: You don't. She doesn't like the controls and based on your post she has no interest in learning them. Let her play what she wants to play. It is an amazing age of video games with countle...

  • insomniak08 posted a message in the forum topic Which game have you been most disappointed by this year?. on the General Discussion board

    Probably the Links Awakening remake. In my mind LA was one of the best Zelda games. It was the 2nd Zelda game I ever played (after Link to the Past) and the first one I ever beat. I had such fond mem...
