Really hoping that A) Mass Effect actually makes it out this year, and B) that its writing is substantially better than the writing in Mass Effect 3. #1
It definitely depends on the LPer, and there is a ton of garbage out there, and a ton of people who don't fit your (somewhat narrow) definition of an LPer, like the Game Grumps, but its definitely out there. I find there's just as much of that present on Youtube as on Twitch, and just as much garbage on Twitch as on Youtube #7.1
Definitely agree regarding the LPers. There are a ton of great ones but also a huge HUGE amount of complete garbage as well.

While I probably wouldn't critically talk about a game I hadn't played before, I still don't really see how its different than dudes who have never held a football analyzing sports statistics and critiquing plays, etc. #6.2.1
Right there with you on #1 and #2 and definitely watched a lot of games I have no interest in specifically because of the LPer (#3), particularly the Game Grumps. #6.1
Yeah I recognize that its not fair to judge a post-apocalyptic setting against a fantasy setting by merit of interest in those concepts alone, but I just feel like Skyrim was inherently designed around capturing a sense of excitement and wonder with every area, as Fallout 3 managed to do by showing us landmarks we recognize in extreme disrepair. The setting itself, and particularly the Boston setting, weakens their ability to do this by recognition alone. #5.1
I figure a lot of people consider these 2 games to be pretty much the same thing, but they just don't evoke the same sort of emotional response in their exploration. Skyrim fills me with wonder and curiosity, Fallout makes me feel like a dude with a grocery list staring ever at the floor. #2
Don't really understand why Cloud is even in this game. He's not a Nintendo character, and has never appeared on anything on a Nintendo console. Also, he's Cloud....who cares? #3
oooooh snap who's excited!? This Guy #2
Sorry, too busy with Halo... #1
Super Meat Boy is great. Old at this point, but pretty great. #2
Really disappointed by the story of this one but the multiplayer is so good #1
I've actually never heard of this game before. I'll have to give it a look-see. #2

I haven't tried any of these besides War of the Monsters, I'll have to give them a look. I missed out on so many SNES games. #6.1

Super Meat Boy was such a legit fun game. #1

The old ones are great. They're supposed to be campy, that's the whole point, haha. #7.1

I completely agree. For me the series hasn't really been "great" since Second Encounter or Next Encounter on the Gamecube. 2 just didn't stick out, and 3 was pretty meh overall. A shakeup is a good direction for them to go in, but I hope they don't spend so much time on the story that they forget to polish the gameplay down to the mirror sheen it had in the first few games. #4.1

I knew that had to be the case. It was so heavy-handed with its CoD-style tropes that I could only assume that it was on purpose, and not simply because they were trying to fit in with modern gaming to sell more units or appeal to a broader audience. #3.1
