Blogger Petey AM talks about why smash hit 'Hotline Miami' does not appeal to him.
Summary: "I'm old and my current mental state isn't strong enough to handle violence". Saved you all some time.
thank you :)
Good God. This barely constitutes a sufficient tumblr post. This may be the most pointless article ever written. Hotline Miami doesn't glorify violence, it discusses our drive as gamers when it comes to killing, the high scores and how it desensitises us. It's about donning the mask for anonymity. When we enter the room with that mask on, we aren't expected to be human, we're monsters. Oh well, he misses out on one of the best of the year I guess.
This has to be stupidest title I have seen in some time on N4G.
Cool story, bro.
I dont care if its "indie" , all i see is a rather mediocre game there by today's standards and its own appeal . However the premise of the article isnt even about that , but some nonsensical crap and BS reason .
Nobody care. I'm going to buy the game and enjoy it.
We are soooo happy for you bro. You know what ? I have NO DESIRE to eat pasta tonight. Great story isnt it ?
Hey Guys, writer of the article here. This is a personal blog post, more for the exploration of why we play the games we play, rather than a slight or hate article against 'Hotline Miami'. Perhaps I should not have posted a blog article on here, but nonetheless, I believe it is a good exploration into our desires to pick up and play a game. The title may have misled you, and for that I apologize.
