The title better explains the basics of what I'm looking for in replies than anything I could write. However, the thread does require a first post and I prefer something with meat on it. Basically, what games do you either love, like, or just find kind of amusing that have one or two glaring issues that hold them back from being near perfection for you? Be it story, game mechanics, atmosphere, or something as simple as a single exchange of dialogue that came out of nowhere in your view, any reason given is valid as long as you back it with at least some sort of explanation. However, I don't want just the name of a game and what you don't like about it. I want to learn about these games and understand them, to see if they're worth picking up even with their share of problems. So, in the interest of that objective, I would also like a short section on what the game actually is. Which of the many genres is it in? Does it introduce something innovative to the genre or hearken back to the genre's roots? What's the story's main premise? Right, I'm sure you get the picture now and can start. If you want, I have something of a basic skeleton below that you can use to organize your writing. Also, I'll put up my own recommendation for an excellent but flawed game after this initial post. SKELETON Name: (Simple one to answer.) System(s) released on: (Seems simple, but be careful if you doing a tie-in game to a show or movie because different systems might have different versions of the same game. Go with the one you enjoyed the game most on.) Developer: (As in the studio that handled the majority of the game's actual production.) Publisher: (If the game has been published by different companies in different regions, go with the North American publisher.) Release Year: (This is simply so I and other readers can search for it with greater ease. Something old or new isn't bad or good just because of its age.) Genre: (Go with the genre that best explains the game.) Main Premise: (In essence, explain the opening of the game's story and setting.) Short blurb on the game's strengths: (Basically, what makes the game great or at least fun in your view.) Main Issue(s): (What's your main gripes with the game.) There, that's finished and I can post the thread. Give me five minutes to do some research on my game's publisher, developer, and genre, and I'll have my answer up. However, you lot can go ahead and post your answer before I do.
