Video games are a serious business for serious, grown-up people. That’s the message that rang out from this year’s E3 PlayStation press conference back in June. (Sorry, ‘Media Showcase’). The time of snuggling up in the easygoing embrace of happy-go-lucky fare like Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank, and LittleBigPlanet is over. We’re now entering the age of sombre PS4 sadness. Best keep the hankies on standby.
