The Videogame Show What I've Done: Art Games


12:00 PM on 02.13.2010



Last week I wrote an article called "Indie games don't have to act like indie games." To my surprise, the article became quite a source of controversy for something posted on a Sunday afternoon. Although David Jaffe liked it, my peers in the gaming press were not so readily pleased.

Patrick Klepek from G4 said I shouldn't expect to ever be taken seriously after a long argument we had on Twitter. G4's Sterling McGarvey said that he'd take any artsty-fartsy indie game over "creatively bankrupt bullsh*t." The whole fiasco even prompted GameSetWatch to publish an analysis of the argument. If all this nonsense taught me one thing, it's this -- we need an expert.

Luckily, The Videogame Show What I've Done knows such an expert. His name is Virgilio Armarndio, who you may remember from a previous episode. Unlike me, he is an expert on all things artistic and was happy to set the record straight on a number of things. He also debuted a brand new indie game, Peaches, which we are exclusively showing for the first time.

Get out your most pompous scarf and pour a glass of wine. Above all, enjoy today's episode!

Killer Instinct's Season 2 is off to a great start

Although it had a few issues in terms of content, Killer Instinct on Xbox One was actually a good game at launch. Since then, I've taken a look at both Spinal and Fulgore, and found them to be a great addition to the alr...more

Confessional: I make up my own stories for games

So here is a dumb thing I do: I make up my own stories in games. No, I'm not just talking about RPGs like Fallout or Skyrim where the entire point is to go out and make your own mark on the world. I'm talking about just about...more
