Cthulhu Saves the World breaks the fourth wall so much.

There should be a Deadpool game, it would be awesome, god knows how he loves to break the fourth wall.

If I remember correctly, he did it a few times during his appearance in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

And MUA 2, and in Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Gotta love,

I'm sorry did he just describe MGS 1 as bad ?!

I don't even know what to say here....

Don't listen to him. He's hysterical.

He was saying the examples in the last paragraph were bad examples of breaking the fourth wall, not that the game was bad.

Abdou232172d ago

Even so, they are not.The whole game is amazing and the Psycho Mantis fight was incredible and waaaay ahead of it's time.the whole game was.

He meant that they were not the best examples in the context of the article I'm pretty sure, not the game.

Where's The Bard's Tale?
Any where's every Lucasarts graphic adventure game from the golden days?

Cool article. I like the abstract approach to topic ideas seen in a lot of recent articles popping up. I like it and the idea of examining the breaking of the fourth wall in games is a great example of paying attention to something that isn't totally banal. Graphics, game X vs. game Y, 8 year late reviews, and sexism seem to be topics of about 80% of the articles I see lately.
