I was also drawing the analogy towards charities as well - things I wish I could help with more often because I know it's for a good cause, but a sudden onslaught of them simply overwhelms me.

No offence intended to the Kickstarter groups, but there is a certain "begging for change" feel to this situation. When Double-Fine did it, I got excited because it seemed like a cool idea to invest...

Sam & Max would win this hands-down. It's one thing to see two characters working together, but you don't really understand the depths of their relationship until they're separated. And as evidenced...

I do like Telltale Games on the whole. I have several of their game cases sitting right over my head, from S&M Season 1 to Jurassic Park. As I really enjoy their stories, it's easier for me to...

The problem with trying to make player-authored stories as an art form is that by giving creative control to the player, developers also need to forfeit certain creative rights to make the formula...

I just assumed we'd play "A Vampyre Story" immediately after "Discworld Noire". Haven't played it yet, so I'm still down for that.

I think it's just the last ten minutes of the game that are so incredibly bad that most gamers completely forget the rest of the game experience as soon as the credits run. The "31" score left by...

This was one of the first freeware titles I've played in ages, and it was downright stunning. It has a very "Gabriel Knight" feel to it, but manages to push its subject matter into a much more darker...

Try "Codename: Iceman". I know people who can't even beat it with a walk-through. There's sequences that rely heavily on generating random results, and the game will actually kick you out for...

Actually, that's not a bad idea. Doing a "Next 100 Games" as opposed to recycling the same list we just saw. Of course, we'd probably see an influx of overlooked Sierra titles, but adding to the Top...

I'm in agreement. If everyone posts their own lists, someone's going to have to average them out, and these lists are all going to contain mostly the popular games. Then a bunch of people will call...

Lost count, but I still replay KQ6 and DOTT on a yearly basis. All the other classics from Sierra and LucasArts I've probably replayed dozens of times as a kid (ESPECIALLY the Monkey Island games).

Personally, I get bored in ten minutes by any game without a story (unless I'm playing co-op with my friends - but then that's whole other story right there).
