    i have never played Diablo before

    would i like it

    is it like WoW

    Not really?

    I mean, it's kind of like WoW, in that you are running around killing baddies and getting loot. But it's third person, you have much fewer abilities, and there aren't a bunch of quests like "go kill 8 boars" and shit. You're playing through a story.

    What Diablo have you been playing?

    Diablo is basically press button get loot and talk to your buddies while doing so.

    It's pretty much exactly like "go kill 8 boars" though.

    But instead of 8 boars, it's repeat acts 1-4. In comparison to WoW, think of it like running all the raid dungeons from one expansion over and over again.

    I guess they've added in small things like crappy PvP and infernal machines... which means you have to run acts 1-4 to get the stuff do to them.

    This is my problem

    "Come LoL with us!"

    Uhh..... but.... but.... but.... loot!

    Dish bish even leaves the LoL client up to farm invites.

    Then 20 minutes after your round starts he's like "olol I'm playing another game sorry you're not good enough fyi hth"

    No matter how many times I punch Teemo

    he never drops a magic sword.

    I found a solution to a problem!

    As with most science, the problem turned out to be a literal solution but anyway this problem took an embarrassing amount of time to solve.

    I like both games

    I think, in terms of staying power and depth, LoL is probably better

    LoL is the game you go back to

    Well, when I say the art was bad I mainly mean that the character models looked hideous. Really just some of the worst stuff to come out of an AAA game in a while.

    The colors were good and the non-character models were generally good, but god damn, the character models were awful. The big-hand thing kind of worked in Fable where it was part of a deliberate uniform cartoon style, but I thought it was an exceptionally bad decision to juxtapose cartoonish hands and faces with normal bodies and normal, gritty, semi-realistic everything else.

    The idea of the universe is cool but as you said, EM, it's too hollow. They had a few kind of interesting ideas in the abstract but none of the implementation was good or deep.

    you are talking about dishonored, right? i couldn't disagree with this sentiment more. the universe was novel and the art style was incredibly expressive and interesting. the color pallet was great - reminiscent of a watercolor. the creepy talking heart conceit was cool as hell. the gameplay mechanics were a good mix of stealth + action that clicked for me in a way that stealth games rarely do. the characters were fairly interesting and way better than VG standards. the story structure was rather interesting and at times had some emotional gravity.

    man if i had to pick a goty from last year it would probably be between dishonored and bioshock infinite. both were really great examples of the art form moving forward.

    imo fyi hth etc

    i would say they're more examples of the industry competently standing still.

    eh

    i mean look - the key aspects in which video games fall far short of other traditional narrative arts are in:

    character development
    narrative competency
    emotional depth
    distinct visual style

    both BI and dishonored moved the form forward in these four aspects IMO

    like, you might criticise the industry for bloated budgets and the studio system and a lack of auteur vision in AAA properties or stagnant gameplay or democratizing difficulty levels or something and that is all fair enough, but what I'm centrally interested in right now - narrative development - made some real strides in these games.

    The narrative aspect of Dishonoured was as weak as any other game - shallow characters, bland writing, predictable story with not much interesting going on, anticlimactic ending, typical forced and un-nuanced binary morality system.

    It was hardly making strides in that respect.

    What made Dishonored impressive was striking visual style, intriguing world (as underused as it was) and excellent level design and stealth/action.

    I'd point out Walking Dead as something making narrative progress in games, or Mass Effect 3, poor ending aside.

    I was on such a tear with Twitch last night I carried my team so hard.

    I was raging though I've never had such a useless team all together like that before.

    my problem with games now days really is that i have so little attention span for them

    all the ps3 games i own are half played. I haven't finished Assassin Creed 3, borderlands 2, anything because everytime i start it, i have to spend 5 minutes figuring out the controls again, then figure out what I'm supposed to do, then realize that oh, my supposed to spend 10 minutes traveling to some quest and i get bored and turn it off

    games like league of legends or just madden offer a specific time frame for the game. I enter it and know that ok, this will take 20 to 30 minutes and be over.

    Does Mass Effect 3 offer any strides forward from a narrative perspective? Bioware seems to refine their existing story and style rather than make any progress for the medium.
