The Outsider

We’re starting to get embarrassed when developers launch into the now over-familiar checklist of claims and promises for their next release - as conversation turns to the topic of “living, breathing gameworlds,” “super-intelligent NPCs” and “genuine non-linear gameplay” we look at our shoes, bite our lips and try to steer the chat round to other subjects, such as the local sports team. Anything to resist the urge to yell “Bullshit.”
