CaptainD, you raise good points! I agree with your review remarks because I have a lot of online friends that rally for these kinds of issues, whether or not they suffer with them, but they are glowing about their opinions of the games long before even so much as a real screenshot appears! I'd like to think they'd give a fair review, but I believe many of them would give it high ratings because they agree with the message.
Drac, that's interesting and a great way to expand your knowledge of topics!
I personally loved Fran Bow and Among the Sleep. They were outstanding games in every way. They seem to stand out from the others I have encountered. I have not been even tempted to play any of the others I come across for a host of reasons. I generally go for the lighter side of games so that they don't depress me as well!
Thanks for your opinions CaptainD, Mad, Drac and oldbroad! Appreciate it!
