Why I Love Firewatch

Why I Love Firewatch

Firewatch has, by some, been unfairly labelled as just another run of the mill walking simulator. However, I think Campo Santo have managed to create a truly outstanding game which, nearly two years later, is still a phenomenal experience. The opening of this game is completely breath-taking, almost immediately kindling…read more >
Why I Love Bioshock

Why I Love Bioshock

Imagine the horror of being submerged miles and miles beneath the Atlantic ocean in a dystopian underwater city with no immediate means of escape. The isolation. Now, imagine being stuck there with a megalomaniac, a power hungry nut job and hordes of lunatics possessing superhuman powers. Well, thanks to 2K's…read more >

Why I Love No Man’s Sky

No Man's Sky promised players a galaxy of infinite planets (procedurally generated) to explore, each possessing a myriad of fauna and flora to examine and record with the hope of being able to do all of this with their friends in some form of integrated co-op.

Why I Love Virginia

After indulging in and thoroughly enjoying both Firewatch (Campo Santo) and Everybody's Gone To The Rapture (The Chinese Room), I considered it almost compulsory to give Variable State's, Virginia a go once I heard it possessed a similar likeness to those fantastically memorable titles. After the hour and a half…read more >

Guest Post: My Favourite Videogame Stories

Despite what some stuffy people say, videogames have the capacity to tell beautiful and important stories. Obviously not all videogames revolve around a narrative (yay for Wii bowling!) and that’s absolutely fine.

Why I Love The Last Guardian

The Last Guardian is a third person adventure-puzzler, which follows the story of an unusual friendship between a boy and a giant cat-dog-bird called Trico. The unfamiliar premise of the game was the winning factor which pulled me in and ultimately, made me fall in love with it. The Last…read more >
