Story telling unlocked: The Last Of Us

The Last Of Us and the graduation of video games.

The late, great Roger Ebert once wrote that he believed video games could never be considered art. While I never agreed with that statement, I could see where he, as a film critic, was coming from.

Diablo 3: Why in heavens name am I still playing?

Why, for the love of the flying spaghetti monster, am I still playing Diablo 3? A game that’s almost 4 years old. And not only am I playing it, I’m apparently still enjoying it. You want proof?

When the first Mortal Kombat came out all the way back in 1992¬†my old folks made sure I did not play that game at all. Internet wasn’t a thing. All I had were the articles in Nintendo power,¬†a couple of¬†screens and hearsay from friends who had friends we were friends with kids who saw the game while playing at a friends house. It was an obscure game; A myth.
The closest arcade was a couple of miles away, and arcades were not a big thing in the Netherlands anyway. Continue reading Day Z РMortal Kombat
