Kombo: Epic. It's a word that you hear a lot these days.
It is usually used as a superlative, to praise something deemed big and grandiose, but also very good, despite the fact that the term "epic" doesn't really have a positive or negative connotation. One thing we can agree on is that it does in fact mean something done on a grand scale, and that certainly applies to certain videogames.
We all love a good, epic game, but it seems to me that we have become so enamored with games done on the epic scale that we may have forgotten that a game doesn't have to be epic to be good. It has become somewhat irritating to me to see great games go unnoticed because of their lack of an "epic story" or grand scale. Not every game needs to be "epic" and it's a shame that games that are not so easily fall through the cracks.
