This January, I've been challenging myself to review games in less than fifty words. I've been writing one review a week, and while I've posted a couple of these separately, I've decided to hold the remaining two back and post them all at once - hence my review of FNAF being written before the game was pulled. I may continue this in February - I've yet to decide - but my motivation was to get to the point relatively quickly. While web-based publications don't have the same space limitation paper-based publications have, I'm aware that people's attention spans can be limited, hence this challenge. So without further ado, on the with the reviews.
A massively entertaining role-playing game that does something genuinely different with the genre. It's highly replayable – messing with your head on later playthroughs - and features characters who are so endearing you'll be glad that pacifism is an option. Heartily recommended, whether you're an RPG fan or not.
Short but extremely replayable, The Deed is a murder-mystery where the mystery is whether or not you'll get away with your heinous crime. Every action you take or word you utter counts, so failure never seems illogical or unfair. Highly entertaining and ridiculously cheap, it'd be criminal to miss it.
Five Nights at Freddy's World:
Resembling nothing so much as an unofficial fan-game, Five Nights at Freddy's World is a clunky, clumsy RPG where victory seems to be largely random. While seeing the Five Nights at Freddy's characters in their cutesy non face-shredding forms is mildly amusing, it's not enough to save the game.
Fallout: New Vegas
Fallout: New Vegas is often regarded as the zenith of the Fallout series and rightly so. While roaming the Mojave wastelands is massively entertaining in itself, New Vegas is further elevated by its non-binary approach to morality that will leave you questioning your own decisions. A veritable post apocalyptic tour-de-force.
