    Flower definitely belongs here. Beautiful, simple, wholly unique. This is one of, if not the, first game I show to someone when I'm trying to explain the potential of video games.

    It's a shame that neither Heavy Rain or Beyond were great, because I love that sort of gameplay model.

    I'll say unfinished swan, Tokyo jungle and killer is dead. Oh that sick game from our twisted minds in japan that the objective is to molest a chick. wtf?!? -But even having I blog about uncategorized game is pretty frickin cool. Thanks too the indie Devs they are the ones how have and are breaking the mold and branching out experimenting with game mechanics , graphics, and throwing it at the wall seeing what sticks ... GAMES in general evolved so much over the last 15 yrs. playing a game and your decisions change your story ...insane. I use to be so happy beating SFII ON SNES Because the endings where so amazing. Ta-hah

    I downloaded Noby Noby Boy for next to nothing recently, just because I had a bit of spare cash, and I'm still not sure what the hell it's all about....

    I never realized how hard it is to fit NiGHTS into a genre until I had to describe the game to someone. Seriously, try to describe what the game is in just one sentence. But while you're playing it, it's just so simple and intuitive. You never even question it. Man, marketing and advertising this game must have really sucked.

    Some quirky titles up in here. On the subject of genre, I agree with the assertion that in gaming we need to re-examine our definitions of genre. It doesn't work to label games in the same way we do books or film. We should look at more than base mechanics, why do we play a certain type of game, what do we get out of it, what do we want to get out of it?

    Animal crossing falls under the genre of brain killer. Or is that just for me?

    Time killer, maybe...

    I was in a ramen place in Honolulu last night that had bowls on the walls, and lots of hanging lights and small tables and chairs, and the music was absolutely suitable for a Katamari game. I totally expected an ever expanding ball to roll through and add me and everything around me to its size. I wonder if that sort of set up is common enough in Japan to inspire Katamari to be its own genre?

    Good ol Seaman and Mr. Mosquito fall in the "Weird shit that came from Japan" bin right next to Demolition girl.

    I didn't even know that Mr. Mosquito existed until now, and judging from the screenshot, I almost wish I still didn't. (Seriously, Mr. Mosquito is a perv!)

    Welcome to world of GTS fetishes.

    I think Pokememes already introduced me to that, sad to say. It's a real shame, since some of the cleaner stuff on there is actually entertaining...
  • shawksta - April 18, 2014 10:28 a.m.

    It is entertaining

    I'm currently also following Twitch Plays Pokemon, since that can be very entertaining as well. I wish people would stop going Helix-crazy, though, and referencing Bird Jesus on Good Friday is at least borderline sacrilegious. I shudder to think of what lore they come up with on Easter.
