Blind Spots: Great Games I've Never Played

Everyone likes a nice digestible list! Quite simply, it's a list of some high profile and critically lauded games I've just never played, and some reasons (excuses) why I haven't. Some might be games I've attempted and dropped very shortly ...

 
 
 

Does Art Deserve Our Loyalty? (and other musings)

Fangs for the Memories: Eternal Darkness Bathtub Scene

Yup, anyone who played this game knows instantly what I'm talking about unless they were lucky enough to have missed the button prompt in the Roivas (hey, that's Savior spelled backwards! :ppppppp) mansion. It has no bearing on the plo...
