  1. Video won't play because of its privacy settings. Anyone else have this problem? I've never had trouble seeing these videos before...
  2. Brilliant, thanks so much! Who knew 20 minutes of talking about meeting and notebooks could be so much fun? That said it's really interesting to think what makes these games interesting. I never played the original Monkey Island or Day of the Tentacle cause we didn't even have a computer until 97 or so. Then my cousin gave me his old one (running Win95 and with a whopping 1,16GB hard drive!) along with a copy of Riven and I was lost to the world for weeks! (Until I found out about walkthroughs) The Myst games are very different from what they do here I think, mainly because they're quite serious. But I loved them because 1: I could explore freely and immerse in the world, 2: they told interesting stories where I was never sure what was going to happen next and 3: they has interesting characters. All those are very necessary for me to get into a game. Humor is also great where appropriate, and I quite like good puzzles. But the puzzles need to be part of the storytelling and not so hard that you end up combining random items or doing the same racetrack over and over because it has to be perfect. I mostly hate racetracks. I think they're a guy thing. I have no patience with them. Games I've loved are Myst 1, 2 and 3, Portal 1 and 2, Half-Life 2 + episodes (on easy setting). And I really enjoyed the Telltale Sam & Max and Monkey Island episode games. Tried getting into Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Fallout but I hate hate hate getting to the next part of the story and realizing that I need more XP to be able to do it. Completely puts me off. Also hate the whole bargaining issue. Guess it's a patience thing again... Anyway, that's my two very random and possibly incoherent cents. Looking forward to the next video!
