Well another week has come and gone and I have missed another post – it’s not intentional, I am incredibly busy! Although one thing I haven’t been too busy to do is read what other bloggers have been putting out there.
As always (although later than usual) here are my picks of the best posts I have read over the past week. Please click each and support these fine posts and their bloggers, I’ll leave you with a promise that I will get back into my usual posting pattern as soon as possible!
Extra Credits – Still Skeptical of VR: A damned good video showing five of the problems that VR is going to face when it comes out to the public. This video really got me thinking about VR as a platform rather than a peripheral; I am really excited by the potential shown by all the VR headsets and hope it can overcome these issues!
MMO’s on the list of most import PC games: TAGN has explored the PC gamer list of the most important PC games ever released. TAGN has picked out the MMOs on that list and has created a great post that analyses the genre’s past, present and future. Even if you have no interest in MMOs (I don’t) you should read this!
The Coin-Op Question: Which Games Are Must-Haves in 2016? I love these posts from playlegit, and at the time of writing; this one did not get the comments that it deserved! I though that this was a cracking question to ask – please go check out this series and if you can, take part in the next one this coming weekend!
Chuck’s Top 10 Games of 2015: A great list from chuck! As I said in my GOTY post, 2015 was a good year for games – while it was short on classics, it had a high number of very good games. This list is full of such games – I won’t ruin what he thinks is the best game of the last year, but I will implore you to go read it!
Life Without Levels: A really interesting read on the topic of levelless MMORPGs from Wait for Rez; specifically in ‘The Secret World’. Go read!
Uncharted In Captions: A really fun post from CT Murfy! It is essentially a review in pictures! Check that out!
5 Survival Horror Games Keeping the Genre Alive and Well in 2016: Regular readers will know that I am a massive Survival Horror fan; I love the genre and buy horror games like they are going out of fashion. Over the past ten years however the genre has taken a kicking and we’ve not seen many good releases. 2016 looks to rectify that however (and I know we’ve had a couple false dawns; be positive though!). Check out this detailed post on the subject by Jen from Another Castle!
