Dunno if it counts as a real game, but draw something has been devouring my time. Good thing I turned off push notifications or my phone would be buzzing off the hook. I would be lost without mobile games on the bus to work, say what you like about them killing the console market but once I'm home, consoles all the way baby!!!

Completed Kingdoms today, good fun, but the final boss battle left me a tad disappointed, oh well, time to kick some zombie pirate booty!!!

So, what's everyones favourite game and why?

 

Mine's got to be Resident Evil 4. This was my first step into the Resi world, and I could easily dedicate myself to the game for days on end. With the tenseness that came from having to run THEN gun and the near absence of ammunition on the tougher difficulties it created one of the few genuinely exciting experiences in my collection. Couple that with the satisfying squelch of caving in a zombies head with your trusty shotgun, and you're definitely onto a winner.

RE:4 was one of the better installments in the series, but RE:2 will always hold a place in my heart as my favorite Resident Evil game. As for my favorite game in general... that's a tough one. Currently the one that sucks most of my time is Minecraft, but there are a lot of older games that probably rank higher. I'll have to do some thinking :)

Resident Evil 4 is my favorite in the RE series, but my all time favorite game would have to be Final Fantasy VII

Its not an uncommon sight to see video games being brought up by the media as a thing of pure and blackened evil, how they rot our brains and corrupt our young, but how much of that can actually be attributed to the games themselves and not the people that play them? The key here does not perhaps lie with the games themselves, but instead the parents who allow their parents to play these games. Having worked in game retail, it was an all too common sight to see parents buying games with 18 ratings, a la Duke Nukem, for younger children and ignoring my advice on the ratings, almost offended as if I questioned their ability to raise their own child.

 

Without demonising parents or games we need to as an industry understand that the games made have implications on those around us, whether they be young or otherwise susceptible to the images in gaming. on the flip side of the coin the people that buy the games for the young children in question need to really look at themselves and see that allowing children to play these games can have a negative effect.

 

At no point do I want to argue with the ability to parent and the choices they make but the issue is never as black and white as the media makes it just look below.
