But Are Used Games Bad?

An all out war has been declared on used games and I have to wonder…are used games really that bad? Obviously there are negative connotations to buying used over new and clearly you should buy new when you can, but…well, does it even matter? One question you have to continuously ask yourself is how am I benefitting (or robbing) the developer?

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things – Episode 9

Yeah, been a while since I’ve done one of these. I think it’s mostly because I really like doing these, but it can be hard to pick out an individual scene, situation, or dungeon that demands the modern gamer’s attention. All the same, if I think of even ONE, I try to force myself to write immediately. As usual, there are embedded vids on the images. Enjoy!

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things – Episode 8

You Love It, I Hate It – Grand Theft Auto 4

Back in the 90s I played both the original GTA and GTA2 on my PC. They sucked. Imagine Spy Hunter, but being able to turn in all directions, the camera doesn’t adjust, the angle isn’t wide enough to see if you’re going to run into shit, there’s no mini-map, there are lives, and while there were missions, it wasn’t worth checking into them without a mini-map, compass, or any sense of direction.

There are 21 games. This is a huge year for adventure games and if you already know about most of these, you’ll see why this was a ridiculous hard choice to make for top 3.
