does this video contain spoilers to System shock 2?
because I am pretty early in and would like to finish it eventually.
Luckily no. I beat the game twice but all my save files were in the end levels and had no great examples of the points I make so I just stuck to Med-Sci.
I generally try to avoid spoilers.
Kaine makes me feel funny.
Show me on this doll where it feels funny.
you used run-off-the-mill twice or even a few times in following sentences.
just a notice, no big issue.
Haha yeah, its a bad habit. I think I repeat the phrase “Avant Garde” several times in my Anodyne review.
I’ll try to be on-top of that. Thanks for letting me know.
Why did you choose System shock 2 instead of the first one? That game was the first to use the narrative techniques that appear in SS2, Doom 3, Metroid Prime and Bioshock.
Because I recently beat SS2 again with friends, so all the stuff is fresh in my mind. Plus I can’t find my old disc for SS1. Oops.
The game is available for free on systemshock.org. Just google system shock portable and it should take you to the relevant thread.
Alpha Protocol is a great game, except for its gameplay other than that I recommend it for its story. I hope Obsidian makes a sequal to Alpha Protocol. Since they did wanted to make sequal to the game.
I think there’s a place for “cinematic” experiences alongside the examples you describe in the video, if something is done well why can’t we have all sides of the spectrum?
I feel like modern games are bogged down more by just generally bad design than them being too much like a movie.
Its a tough call, mainly because it boils down to personal preference and stuff. Then there are games like MGS that do things like cutscenes forever to bore you then pull out the heavy moments like the end of MGS 3. Its a hard thing to balance, and as some games have shown lately, publishers really don’t care about trying to pace story or develop a good world but rather make money.
MGS is always very stop start but it somehow works for it, probably because the gameplay when those cutscenes aren’t happening is pretty fucking great.
