Extra Punctuation The Sexual Awakening of Ness in EarthBound

Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw:

As I've said before, I like when a game is elegantly written. I like when a game story manages to get its point across without too much expositional dialogue, ideally within gameplay, not cutscenes. I'm very much a supporter of the 'show don't tell' rule. Partly because it's boring to slog through too much dialogue at once, and partly because I like when there's room for interpretation. That's one thing (of many) that Hideo Kojima has never understood, he writes games like he spent all week working out complex profiles for all his original characters that he thinks are sooo cool and he's going to sit you down and explain them all at you until you agree. 'Fat Man' was named after the atomic bomb, was he? Thanks for sharing, Hideo. (Earthbound, Retro)

Anyone that is buying TLOU remastered should buy it used so the Developer doesn't get paid 2x. Only people playing for the 1st time should buy it new.
