Why didn't You tell me about Resident Evil?

It was a small, niggling regret that I had not played the original Resident Evil. I had, up until recently, only played Resident Evil 4 and 5. I've also played the prologue of RE6, but I didn't play further because I could already sens...


Show, Don't Tell: Do Games Talk Too Much?

At some point, it was decided that every modern video game needed to include additional story in the form of collectables. As we wander the world, we come across audio and/or text files. We can pause our gameplay to open up the parchme...


Which Game was Your Greatest Disappointment?

Last year, I hopped into No Man’s Sky. I’m usually late to a game, but in this case the wait was very intentional. You might remember that when the game came out it was met with bile and vitriol. To listen to early reviews ...


This Wound Matters: Video Game Storytelling

We don't always play the video game in front of us. Control is often wrested from us, and we are obliged to watch closely. Cutscenes and Quick Time Events interrupt the flow, to push the plot forwards or to steer us down a very specifi...


Me, end of a lesson: Right, I'm going to say something now, and there's a chance you might make me feel old. But don't. Students: Okay. Me: You know how Space Jam 2 is coming out... Students: What's a space jam? Me: What did I just say?!


Animal Crossing, My First Family Game

For the last few years, I keep putting aside some money to (maybe) buy a Nintendo Switch, only to talk myself out of it for 'grown-up' reasons. You know the kind: do I really need it? I should use the money on something more productive...


I'm not ready for Link's Awakening

The very first console I owned was a Game Boy Color. The very first game I owned on the Game Boy was The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. This was the first game I ever properly completed. The idea of replaying an old game should be ...


I Miss Dead Space

I'm pretty fickle when it comes to horror. I'll happily skip most scary movies, but ever now and then I hit on one that I really enjoy, but it won't convince me to get more into the genre. When it comes to role-playing games, the horro...


[Spit take] Oh... Hello?

Well this is odd. I used to blog on here. The last time I did so was in 2016. I had a break from blogging for a couple of years - teacher stuff, family stuff, etc. - and when I came back to it, I couldn't get into my Destructoid a...

What do you want from a Boss Fight?

I’m terrible at sticking to one game at a time. Whilst I should be dedicated to The Witcher (especially since I’m blogging about it once a month), I’m also playing Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask on the 3DS and Lost O...

Is Minecraft Bad for Adults?

Did you know that bananas are good for you? The high potassium and low sodium content in each yellow packet of mush is great for your cardiovascular system. They are also high in fibre, which helps you poop. Which is nice. There’...

Hello, I'm Rufus Scott

I'm a long-term gamer and a full-time teacher. If I'm not writing about my experiences as a gamer-teacher, I'm over-thinking games because I can, or rambling about life as a "grown-up" gamer.

You can find me writing in the Community area here, or at my own site - GamerPeak.com.
