The funny thing is that games have enough trouble having even male protagonists that aren't glorified sex objects (at least according to a teenage boy's view of a sexy man)

Writers that don't try…

That's exactly what I used to say… until I played The Lost Crown. ;)
If you do like point-and-click games and/or you fancy doing some ghost hunting you absolutely have to play that game regardless!

EA seems to have almost the exact same motto with only a very small and subtle difference: Don't, be evil. So they might get along after all.

I don't think there should be any separation either.
(Especially in such an unexciting year)

Well they do seem to have changed maybe even too much, nothing seems to work the way it did, meaning people need to learn it all over again. One should probably approach this as an entire new and…

I've been playing it for a couple of hours. Very spectacular so far though I have no idea what I'm doing - which is good I suppose since that was exactly the case with X3 TC too (the only other X…

Well if it doesn't have to be an RPG I'd say that my favorites are King of Dragon Pass (which is actually superior to the pc version) and, yeah, Phoenix Wright - although both of them are kind of…

I'd say give Avadon another chance since you already have it. That and the Avernums are solid games and work great on the iPad but there's little to choose from otherwise. The most recent one must be…
