Falling out

JC Barnett is the nom de plume of a video games developer working and living in Japan:

"When it comes to video games I am a man-child who knows what he likes. I'm not interested in shooters, I'm not interested in dystopian future settings, I hate RPGs, I don't care one jot for gore and gibs, realistic characters bore me, open world environments with little to do but travel across them are tedious. I like simple, colourful games, with fun or cute characters, some challenge but mostly just rote activity, and general glucose happiness. So why in the world am I so addicted to Fallout 3, a game which goes against every gaming sensibility I thought I had?"

Fallout 3 is the most unique gaming experience that I have had in a long time. I truly feel like my decisions are changing the lives of the people in the Wasteland. I haven't been this addicted to a single player game since Bioshock. These are, without question, two of the most unique games to ever grace consoles. I think the line between games being an art form versus entertainment is completely gone. Games like Fallout 3 and Bioshock are more interesting and intriguing to me than a great novel or movie. I'm completely addicted to Fallout 3.
