LONG BLOG

It�s All About Context.

   0


Playing Uncharted as Doughnut Drake completely changes the context of why everything collapses under his weight and makes the game a story about Drake�s struggle with obesity.


We need to understand how these worlds work in relation to ours, if being gay or a strong woman isn�t a big deal in your world then you need to paradoxically give us a nudge and wink to let us know it�s not a big deal. You need to give us context, or let the player create their own. I�ve gone over this blog again and again and I�m still afraid people may misinterpret it so let me just be clear, I�m all for more diversity in games, I want them to be more inclusive, I�m just saying that giving the player more freedom can be a double-edged sword, doing so can sometimes lead to incongruity with the setting, and other times it can lead to us creating our own story, and that I�d like to see more of the latter and less of the former.

About Handyone of us since 1:44 PM on 09.14.2009

Welcome to the blog.... you must be bored. anyway im Handy, I'm a student in Ireland and I'm here to talk about whatever may come into my mind....so not much then.

Lets see... I�ve been playing games pretty much my whole life, since my Commodore back in the day to my ps3 now I�ve been hooked. Actually come to think of it I can�t remember a time I wasn�t playing games. Can�t say I have a favourite genre, I like to try a bit of everything, though I will go to town on a good RPG. I�ll have something to fill in this space as soon as my life becomes interesting.

^^^ Seriously, I wrote that like four years ago and still nothing interesting has happened.



Like everyone else on Destructoid I�m at a loss on what to fill this space with so I guess I�ll just catalogue my greatest hits, if you can call a loose collection of lists and borderline pornographic fanart �greatest hits�.
