    Many people missing the point here and arguing over edge-cases. For the majority of games it is not difficult to delineate between "indie" and "not indie". Randomly select 100 games from all video gam...

    Disappointed that nobody has brought up Gonemage's "Master of Disgust" EP

    @mellotronrules: Would you believe that a Western RPG and a Western movie typically refer to completely different things thematically? Context is an amazing thing."Indie games" is a commonly accepted ...

    @bigsocrates: Spot on. It's been an increasing problem over the past 5 years or so. The recent nadir being Game Awards' "Best Indie Game" award nominees being 4 games from large publishers and one bac...

  • MagnetPhonics posted a message in the forum topic Jeff Gerstmann's Rant on "Gank". on the Bombcast board

    @daltimond: It definitely happened. I don't remember it as a rant though. Just him noting that it was weird that the term had been appropriated in that way.

  • MagnetPhonics posted a message in the forum topic Game Pass Gambols 7: Citizen Sleeper is a visual novel with tabletop RPG elements that captivated me.. on the Citizen Sleeper board

    I really enjoyed Citizen Sleeper. But I had so many minor gripes by the end that the first option I got that vaguely resembled an ending I took it immediately, despite 4/5 hanging storylines I was inv...

  • MagnetPhonics posted a message in the forum topic The State of Premium. on the General Discussion board

    Working in an office is much higher risk than almost every other activity most people do in their lives. Note that (at least) one of GB staff is high-risk. So it's a perfectly reasonable decision they...

  • MagnetPhonics posted a message in the forum topic Elden Ring reminded me about how accessibility can ruin immersion. on the Elden Ring board

    This isn't what "accessibility" means in games. It isn't even close to the "Should Elden Ring have an easy mode?" caricature of accessibility options in games that sadly dominates discussions.
