The main character has amnesia (to be the perfect blank slate for you to play).

What about when the main character had amnesia, but he is not a perfect blank slate as you will find his memories from before nearly dying and journal entries that help flesh him out?........generally speaking of course......

 

OT: When gaming media tries to discredit a decent game because it failed to talk about political issues/politics of the game not matching their RL political views perfectly to a tee.

Yeah, even the trope about the character finds out what happened before is kinda overused.

And yes, Breath of the Wild is great, but I kinda rolled my eyes at the notion that Link lost his memories.

Anything Anime. Specifically, ideas like out hearts are connected so we can talk through time and space.

Since then is this Anime?

Allegedly Free Game



The armor in games that's skimpy, looks flimsy yet offers tons of protection. Always on females and usually promotion art.

"Git gud". Particularly annoying because of its vagueness. How good is "gud"? Even if someone plays SSFIV day and night, practicing with his main or with whoever and still loses, he still has to "git gud",



Allegedly Free Game is annoying.

I also don't usually like silent protagonists. Just comes across as lazy in many games. Notable exceptions include Bioshock 1/2 and the new Doom.

YES! This cannot be stated enough. Polygon is biggest offender:

Take a look at this absurd review (or dont if you dont want to give them clicks).



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Silent protagonist!

Ugh, I hate them. They're just so boring. Give me a character that actually has a personality please.



You don't like me in fighting games?

I bet in your mind a skinny person could take him down right?



Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at www.youtube.com/stormcloudlive

Ooooo! That's a good one. Although, I don't hate it. I've learned to live with hot, tight asses in battle panties.
