In addition to the ‘Last game played’ thread in the board games section, I reckoned we “needed” a similar topic in the video games section. So… here it is (hurrah) !!
To start, I’m currently not playing a lot of games, but what I played recently:
The Stanley Parable: Brilliant! I love it when 4th walls are broken (in a good way) and this game takes it to a whole new level, and questions free will and the concept of work quite ingenious and with tons of absurd, dry humor. It reminded me a lot of the movie Brazil by Terry Gilliam.
Dead state: Still in E.A. but already a solid game. I’m not sure if I like it as much as I thought I would when I backed this (now, what, 2 years ago?). I suppose the whole party management / group dynamics is a bit different from my imagination. I think there is not enough bonding between the player and the NPC’s to really care that much about them. Still, I haven’t played it a lot and will restart when the game is fully released for a full opinion.
Peggle (2? deluxe? something?): Erm, yeah… Well… Let’s say that it was fun while it lasted? (for 2 hours straight)
Endless dungeon: Probably a fun concept, but I tend to have less and less patience with games and even less tolerance for pixel-art. And why did I buy a tower defense game? (answer: you probably got it in a bundle, dummy)
What have you guys & gals been playing?
