Games, like with other forms of media, give their audiences subjective experiences that are then formalized and described as objectively as humanly possible. There are those that get praised by the majority, while a lot of others languish far in the background or even deep in the bin. But there ...

The good thing about the adventure game is that stories of all sorts can be told through this genre, and we do mean literally any story. When done right, even the seemingly mundane tales about anything and everything or even nothing can be made interesting through an adventure game. This ...

A successful game series is defined by several things, one of which is a steady improvement on a particular formula that was started with the first game and refined in the succeeding ones. It stands to reason that sequels show the evolution from their predecessors in both gameplay and aesthetics ...

Among the three "next-gen" consoles, the Wii U had drawn the shorter stick, despite being released much earlier. However, its sales have started to pick up more with the release of titles like Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros 4. Despite those big first-party titles, the Wii U's game ...

Most of the time, when you see a game that really looks good, they could be worth getting even if the gameplay doesn't end up being that good just because of the aesthetic quality. However, there are those that don't make the cut as well as they should, despite their ...

Skateboarding is a curious thing indeed, especially for those who are not into it in real life but have played games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater and Skate. The aforementioned games are pretty good in their own right, although they're only as good as the general interest in skateboarding itself. ...

The adventure genre is often misunderstood when it comes to how it should tell a story. Most who have had experience in the genre would recognize the usual linear story broken up by different sequences like puzzles and so on. The ones that did more of stories with multiple endings ...

Adventure games have changed bit by bit over time, although the core gameplay of walking around and interacting with objects in the environment has remained mostly the same.

Making crucial decisions in games have always been in various role-playing and adventure titles throughout the years, although most of them boiled down to the usual flowchart that leads to different endings.

It's a bit odd seeing some games that were released for one platform would then be put out for other platforms years later. Doing so days or months later is common enough, but years later is a rarer occurrence with some interesting results. It lets more people play that game, ...
