    Gone Home is overpriced.

    I'd have probably bought 3 copies at 10 instead of 1 at 20.

    RPS called them First Person Walkers

    RPS'es head is up its collective ass

    The RPS staff is generally into arty shit, so I'm sure the term was invented as some good-natured ribbing.

    The RPS readership on the other hand...

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Absolutely.

    The thing about Giant Bomb is that Quick Looks aren't reviews, they are often purely for comedic purposes

    quick looks get more hits than their reviews, and they absolutely help give an impression of both the game and the players/reviewers

    I think Quick Looks are infinitely more helpful that reviews

    But even then, some degree of familiarity is needed. The sports QL's, while funny, are completely useless if you're trying to decide whether or not to buy those games because no one on staff cares enough about sports games to be able to play them in such a way as to show the quality of the actual game.

    Well, maybe that busted Madden game...

    like how you don't need to know jack shit about football to find Jon Bois' Breaking Madden series hilarious, but Breaking Madden doesn't actually tell you anything about how the game performs under the conditions of actual gameplay or whether or not that gameplay is fun

    I have seen a couple people be a little overzealous in recommending Gone Home, but that often happens with games people are really excited about.

    It seems neat to me but the price tag is too high for a game I might not enjoy, and also that is rather short to my understanding.

    Like, someone in a different thread said try had a rough week and wanted to game out this weekend and asked of he should get Ironclad Tactics, Gone Home or some other third game.

    I said Ironclad would do him solid, should take him 10 hours about to clear the solo content and then he has the co-op and multi stuff to do. Other people basically just said how amazing Gone Home is. But recommending a $20 three hour game to someone who wants to game out for a weekend is quite missing the mark, to me.

    i'm gonna say that referring to a thing people like and consider to be very good as a walking simulator is also being really snide and dismissive, so maybe not as constructive a dialog as you were thinking

    I am not sure if I have played 10 games released this year. Including Gone Home.

    What have I played that came out this year?

    Ironclad Tactics
    Gunpoint
    Ni No Kuni (meh)
    MG Revengeance
    Monster Hunter 4
    Pokemon X/Y

    That may be it?

    New XCOM will be awesome.

    Anyway, fairly certain that I will like all of those games more than I like Gone Home.

    With the exception of Ni no Kuni, that game was meh.

    Video Game Hell: Let's Place LeBron James and the Miami Heat in the NHL
    I decided it was time to make goalies more accountable. I tried my best to identify the best goalie in the NHL, and eventually settled on Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers. I assumed control of the franchise, released every skater on the team, and replaced them with the Miami Heat.

    [...]

    I rolled the tape back and forth dozens of times. This ... this thing, this No. 0, appeared on the bench out of thin air. Occasionally, the blue streak would pour from the cavity where its head was supposed to be, surveilling as perhaps its eyes would.

    There was no No. 0 on the Rangers. Of this, I was positive. I had pored over the entire roster, dumping and adding and double-checking and triple-checking the men on the bench. The box score showed that No. 0 was on the ice for 22 seconds. It did not give him a name, only a period.

    I had taught the game horror, and so it was only natural that it would produce horrors of its own. It made this headless monster out of fear, of confusion, of hatred. I had built this game a Hell, and it gifted me a demon.
