Some years back, Rockstar released the game 'Manhunt' on an unsuspecting world, scarring many people for life. Now, more than a decade on, I think it's time that we look back on that game and try to analyze its impact on the culture at large.
How will I accomplish this? By bringing people who have never seen or heard of the game and playing it along with them. What will multiple sets of fresh eyes think of the game? Is it still as shocking today as it was in 2003? What will more modern, possibly jaded audiences think of it? I can't wait to find out!
In the first episode, I'm joined by popular podcaster DM, who you'd think would be more prepared for the game than she winds up being! Enjoy!
Have any thoughts to share on Manhunt? Do so below, and prepare to have them discussed in a future episode!
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!
