I don’t see this as a golden age for games at all. I’m truly bored with the direction games are taking. It’s completely franchise driven, and they aren’t even doing anything particularly interesting with franchises, they’re just repeating themselves in increasingly more polished but less novel forms.

boo-f’ing-hoo for Jeff Minter.

Certainly not the dojo level from Hitman 2. ;D

How many of the movie’s scenes does Agent 47 spend creeping along wooden beams so as not to touch the squeaky floorboards? None, I would imagine.

And how much of the movie’s scenes are as tense as doing that in the game? None, I would imagine.

Let the pointless arguments commence!
