I haven't posted here in a long time. I don't think anyone actually has a gaming blog on Gamespot but I'm glad they still have it so I can post some thoughts.
I'm also glad that Gamespot is still paying attention to PC games, although not as much as I think they should.
The reason: I've been thinking about buying and playing "Dear Esther", a game that has the industry scratching its head, is so I can see my thoughts before I play it and show whether I'm the type of person who likes "art for art's sake" or a good adventure.
Dear Esther is rated around 80/100 on Metacritic and on Gamespot.
But the fans either love it or hate it.
A review by BunnyRed on MetaCritic wrote: "I'm not exactly sure what I just played, but it was one of the most beautiful things that I have ever experienced. Dear Esther is something of a new genre of game, all to itself. It's more of an artistic expression coupled with minor interactivity and a frighteningly poetic story. As an advocate for games as art, this is my new "exhibit A"."
On GameSpot, Omnimodus78 wrote "I just don't get it..."
And Eruptflail said "This game takes gaming in a direction that I've never seen before."So, I'm going to try the "game" and when I complete it, I'll post a review and a blog entry.
