The ESRB reports that this game contains: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Language, Sexual Themes

Parents probably shouldn't buy this for their children. In addition to all the violence, mature themes, and predatory homosexuals, your under-16s probably just don't have the attention span and reasoning ability to understand the game's complex and layered plot, which would massively lessen their enjoyment of the game. Although, as always, the murdering content is top-notch.

Metal Gear Solid Fans will love this. MGS3 was the best game in the series, and the adjustments that have been made to the camera system have made it far more accessible than it already was. Not only is this a wonderful game for fans of the series, but a perfect place for newcomers to jump in to the series.

Deaf and hard of hearing gamers have a bit of a mixed bag. Being able to hear opponents is vitally important, and while there are items in the game that allow players to do without hearing, such as a limited radar and motion detector, as well as incidental dialogue subtitling, on the higher difficulties these are unavailable, making the game all but unplayable for the hearing-impaired. Also, the codec conversations that provide most of the game's plot offer no way of telling which of the two characters onscreen is speaking, which can get confusing rather quickly.

What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died?

Nothing relevant to this conversation, that's for sure! Because we're here to talk about (sorry, write and read about, respectively) GC_Danny, who's updating this profile for the first time in thirteen years!

So let's take a gander back at that time and see what's happened! In addition to writing hundreds of video game reviews, Dan produced a book that can be legally purchased by almost anyone! He also wrote two short films, two episodes of television, and two movies! Although, sadly, and through much fault of his own, the movies have yet to be released.

In addition to general game reviewing, he's also dabbled in more long-form work, writing some of the longest and most comprehensive game reviews of all time. Then there's his non-GameCritics blogging, where he's famous as the world's foremost expert on the TV show Criminal Minds, as well as the co-host of a weekly podcast - he's even working on a new videogame/critical experiment, which you can find out more about here!

If all that wasn't enough, just a few months ago he rebranded himself as 'The Hidden Object Guru', hoping to stake another claim of ultimate expertise, this time over a genre of casual games! Will he be successful? Only time will tell, but you're free to join the thrilling ride at his YouTube channel!
