Re: PODCAST SUGGESTION- Games for 'Adults'

I agree with you on Dear Esther. However, it could have been something special with a better structure/writing/abandon the stupid random sound clip thing. However, I was trying to get at the reaction to that game - "it's not even a game, you do nothing, wah wah wah!" - and the same for The Path, which was interesting and thought provoking but fell short as a game in that the structure and gameplay were frustrating and couldn't be sustained for 7 hours or whatever. I guess my point was, that with such a vocal minority of imbeciles on the forums of any given site, the environment for creating better (in the thought-provoking, adult themed sense) is getting held back.

In other news, I bought Dragon's Dogma just now. The blurb on the back reads:

Sacrifice your heart and surrender your destiny to the power of the Dragon. Only then can you hope to stand against the Dark as one of the Arisen.

Let's face it, games are for kids, aren't they?
