This is one of those critics-aren't-doing-it-right things, because when it comes to critiquing art in the 21st century they generally suck and thus I present my review of the reviewers.
Over the years I've collected some links for the cream of the weird-browser-game crop, and whenever my brain can't focus, I bust out my bookmarks folder and play them weirdos. Here are five of those games.
These unscripted moments come up organically -- moments when the game is just trying to be a game, only by accident does it convey something more.
There are a few brave souls in gaming who declare that they want to make their work realistic. It's a nice thought -- in theory.
Sometimes developers just don't give a damn. Or maybe they hate us.
Apparently it's just very easy for video game developers to slip in disturbing details that will go unnoticed.
Unlike those elitist chocolatiers, we believe Easter Eggs should be available year-round.
It's a wonder you're not in an asylum right now after being exposed, far too young, to stuff like this.
The study of unwritten rules is a useful tool to understanding how games really work, or at the very minimum a helpful explanation as to how you became such an unwelcome presence in other people's homes.
If you're a politician or pundit, ranting and raving about the evils of video games is still a surefire way to get everyone's attention. And that is how you wind up with manufactured outrages like these.
These games make so little sense, and make the star look so stupid, the only explanation is programmers finally getting revenge by proxy on every popular kid from school.
These folks rolled up their sleeves and showed us how to really whore out our integrity.
Sometimes programmers are apparently in such a rush to finish a game before the deadline that they don't actually have a chance to watch the material they're basing the game on. So, you wind up with deeply confusing titles like these.
