*slaps roof of games industry*
“This thing can hold so many different experiences!”
Ilove how eclectic this list of games is. I mean, there’s usually a difference in quality - it’s kinda expected that not everything can be a ten out of ten (in fact, the debate about that even being possible is one of these things that drunk reviewers often argue over) - but that the scope, scale, and intimacy of storytelling on offer this issue is wonderfully all over the shop.
We’ve got indie experiences that are short but perfectly formed, while offering some remarkably deep feels, and other indies designed around a short, sharp dose of pure destruction. We’ve got big games that made a splash at previous E3s but have kind of fallen short, and unexpected surprises... I mean, I regularly fire up Wreckfest and I - as a rule - hate non-sci-fi racing games.
Speaking of which, since this is the last page I’m writing... who wants a quick lap on a lawnmower?
