Some of you might remember that I've written, not long ago, a (shitty) blog post called "Gaming isn't worthwhile". There I tried to express how tired I've become of gaming and how for example literature is more fullfilling ...
I used to love video games. I used to defend gaming in any way possible, against anyone who said anything bad about it. I can't do that anymore and I beg you, if you have some time, grab a coup of tee and allow me to be just ...
There aren't many video games that blew my mind, made me seriously think and made me feel like I have witnessed something beyond words, something magical. But Braid is one of those, it still hasn't lost it's grib, and I can...
We all know what a large group of players call pretentious, games like Braid, Passage, or game designers like Jonathan Blow etc. But I have this feeling that the word pretentious has become a very meaningless word in the vi...
There is a strange thing I noticed about the behaviour of gamers ( a terrible word by the way), a behaviour that just seems to be unexplainable, just paradoxical. Or maybe it isn't as strange as I think, so let me explain ...
Well hello there! My name is Moritz I'm a teenager from Germany and also an aspiring game designer. I got into games through my father - his work has to do with computers - I believe, but he actually doesn't really like video games, because he thinkgs they're just little time waster, which is the complete opposite of my opinion.
I play video games since I can remember and of course I've got a few favourites, though some of them might not be collectively called "good", but a game doesn't have to be fun for me as long as it is an interesting experience, experiment etcetera.
So my favourites are at the moment (in no particular order):
- Pathologic by russian indie dev Ice-Pick Lodge; the lead designer is Nikolay Dibowsky
- The Void also by Ice-Pick Lodge
- Sleep is Death (not really a game I know) by Jason Rohrer
- Deus Ex by Ion Storm (I only was able to play the demo so far), Warren Spector was the lead designer here I believe
- Braid by Jonathan Blow
- Space Chem (sorry forgot the name of the designer)
- Between by Jason Rohrer
- Demon's Souls
- Super Meat Boy by Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes
- Civ 4 by Sid Meiers
- Fallout 3
And actually this list could go on forever, I think I've just got a pretty divert taste and high tolerance (look at Pathologic for example) for games. So yeah these and many more are video games I like.
Right now I'm playing mostly Pathologic and Super Meat Boy.
