The Jimquisition: Long live single-player!


2:00 PM on 08.20.2010



My new camera hasn't arrived, so I apologize for the bad camera angle that cuts off a bit of my head and the poor sound. Can't be helped. I was going to skip it this week but we needed the content and, well, it doesn't feel like Friday if I don't post one of these now.

Problems aside, this is a subject that's close to my heart, so at least the argument is solid. I've ranted about it before, most recently in the July issue of GamePro. It's about how single-player games are being forgotten by developers and gamers alike in favor of multiplayer and co-op. 

Check it out, and let me know what you think of the subject!

Some gamers are skipping Grand Theft Auto V, unwilling to play the role of a thief, a gangbanger, or a psychopath. While others may shy away from being the villain, Jim Sterling actively revels in it. Indeed, to play the villain can not only be fun, it can be downright fascinating.more

Jimquisition: Lugoscababib Discobiscuits

This week, Jim loads his gun and shoots holes in the argument that certain games suffer from ludonarrative dissonance, just because they're violent. Because really, people, that's not even what ludonarrative dissonance is! If you're gonna use big words to sound smart, use 'em correctly ... guttersnipes.more
