One thing I would like to see is loosing the Indie RPG forum.

The main reason being that what is and isn't an indie game is these days very muddy waters, it's hard to distinguish (but I see other,…

A pretty underwhelming E3 for me personally - too few new announcements, and most of the games have been pretty generic, IMO.

I'm mostly looking forward to Detroit and Zelda, but God of War looks…

It's probably slightly less diverse than from the late 90s to mid 00s, but more diverse than the other time periods. Fewer tactical FPS are released, but in the past 5 years or so we've seen a…

It's interesting that very few games on peoples lists are from the past 8-10 years. I guess the genre has become somewhat stale. I think the genre is quite diverse today, but there's obviously a…

I started to play this 3-4 years back. Still a pretty nice game. I'm liking the hub structure and RPG feel. Need to go back to it when I have time.



Thanks for the tips. For a couple of reasons…

Cool lists with many interesting games!



I really need to bump this up on my mental note of games to play, I've heard so much good about it over the years. Even got it in a bundle last year.

Favorite first-person shooters

As a long time FPS fan - and occasional sceptic - I thought it would be interesting with a thread where people could list their favorite games.

For hybrid games - maybe the "rule" should be that…

Subjects like this is all about perception; in this case of the games as well as the word 'serious' in this particular context. There's no right and wrong, and it's not impossible we agree more than…

The way you describe it, it sounds like what some would just label as simple and repetitive elements, not necessarily as gamey - I'm not doubting these elements are gamey, I'm just saying I'm not…

Gore/horror/grit doesn't necessarily equal a serious atmosphere, it also depends on other elements. It's not that I totally dismiss that the games had a serious element to them, just that I didn't…

I just meant that minimalism it one of the pieces of the final puzzle, not that it by itself makes something gamey. When I played Doom 1 and 2 for the first time, around 1994, I basically felt "this…

I admit I partly meant "seen from a modern perspective". But even in 1994 they were quite gamey: The stuff you mentioned (pickups, health, armor) + very little story (by 1994 a bit more story wasn't…

I can only encourage you to keep playing, especially regarding the health system, which I find almost a stroke of genius.

The thing is, Glory Kills is a very nice risk/reward system, IMO,…

I'm semi-hyped. I love arcadey first-person shooters, and we haven't had many of those since the 90s. I'm mostly talking about the single-player portion, since multiplayer should be quite different….

Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna

Since it's quite rare we get a non-mobile traditional JRPG from Square Enix these days, I thought Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna deserved a thread. Even if it's a low-budget game.

It sounds like a…

It holds up surprisingly well today. I was pleased to read that Kojima's other adventure game, Policenauts, got a fan translation a few years ago. I've got to pick it up on Ebay at some point.

Sorry for the late response.



I think it depends on the context and how it's used. Naturally it wouldn't make much sense out of context and/or without the quotation marks :)
