Hotline Miami Review: Dial 'M' For Murder Simulator - Twinfinite

A few years ago, The Onion ran an article about a fictional video game called Close Range, in which the sole objective was to shoot enemies in the face. Literally; enemies would appear on screen and you would shoot them. People, animals, whatever. For those of us in the know, it was a hilarious satire of what the perception of video games is by people who don't play them. Obviously, video games are (and have been for at at least two decades) multilayered and complex, and are about far more than just 'killing for points'.

Then in 2012, Dennaton Games released Hotline Miami and demonstrated that sometimes video games ARE just about shooting enemies in the face. (Hotline Miami, PC) 4/5
