    I will not take you at your word, but I'm listening.

    Sad you have to specifically state these days that you intend to engage player's brains and not force them through hours upon hours of tedious repetitive mindless "gameplay".

    Pity that Bioshocks their inspiration, thought Freedom Force were a much more ambitious an incline game personally.

    Yeah I'm sure the people behind "wait a minute that card" will make something that requires brainpower to play.

    I'm curious about what he can do without the AAA project pressure but this nuMale team doesn't make me too confident.

    So, pretentious walking simulators made by hipsters. Gotcha.

    Man, Freedom Force was so long ago.

    God bless Ken. He may have veered a bit towards popamole, but I still laud his experimental spirit that harkens back to the LGS era.

    The old brigade bringing their old school ethos to modern gaming back and refined is the only reason why I still give a shit about gaming.

    God bless Ken, the Arkanites, the Otherside Gang, the Gilbert BROTEAM and all the other cool developers that are still trying to keep my old gaming heart kindled.

    I like how the idiot who made this video thinks "wounded knee" is an allusion to Skyrim rather than an actual historic event. Looks like Bioshock is the perfect game for him after all. :lol:

    He talked about this years ago in a talk. IIRC someone in the audience later asked him how it differed from STALKER's factional relationships and he spilled spaghetti everywhere.

    Just ignore Morgoth's posts and rate them [​IMG]
    He's probably even a closeted Bioshock fanboy.

    There's a small portion of modern games floating about that can inspire any giving of shits, but modern "immersive sims" don't fall under that category. Not so far anyway.

    I'm pretty sure that the joke was that most of these "educated" players would think that it was a Skyrim reference rather than a real thing. One would think that if the person making the video lacked the knowledge of the actual event, he would not have included the joke.

    No, that makes no sense. The rest of the video makes fun of how simplistic the game (or rather, that one "puzzle" that happens before the game even really starts) is and pretends it's some intellectual masterpiece. The author thinking "wounded knee" really is a skyrim reference makes perfect sense in this context.
