Another one down
2014 is about to end, and that means one thing: let’s talk about what my year was like gaming wise, and what my game of the year is! Again, this will follow the same rules as last year: my GOTY is a game I first played this year that had the biggest impact on me. It’s not necessarily the best game, or the one I played the most. It’s just one that got to me well enough that I still want to talk about it months after I’ve stopped playing it.» Read more / comment...

On the subject of military ethics
So, Call of Duty, subtitled Advanced Warfare, has come out recently. And well, it’s about good Americans versus evil mercenaries, and it covers ripped-from-the-headlines issues like security and privacy. Because the advantage you have with PMCs is that you’re not offending anyone when you shoot at them, unlike when you do so with Russia or some middle eastern country. On the scale of cartoon evil, mercenaries are only one step above Nazis. And they’re at their evilest when they come to take our hard earned freedoms because humans can’t be trusted with that. Makes me wonder why they did not just pick Abstergo as the villain there. Oh, right, intellectual properties.» Read more / comment...

Let's wrap this year up
So, 2013 comes to a close. I hope you had a good year. I sure did. I thought about doing some “year in review” thing, but I got lazy, so I figured I’d just write about what I think is the best game of 2013. And by that I mean the game I played in 2013 that left the largest impact on me, and not which game released in 2013 is the best. Every media outlet and their dog does that, so if you’re looking for that, just go to Polygon or Kotaku. I’m betting that Grand Theft Auto V will top most charts.» Read more / comment...
