Top 10 Story Driven Games

When I look at my games I tend to rate 9's and 10's, one thing that I have noticed is that a lot of them are what I call "scenario based" or "story driven" games. Now scenarios are more a case of me putting in the story as I play, but I love a game where there is already a story in place and you're playing through it via the game mechanics. So here are my 10 games where I feel the story is the strongest element for me enjoying them. What are your picks, I'm sure there are plenty more than the 10 here, let us know in the comments and explain why they're your chosen picks. Also I hope you like the revised transitions and lower thirds used in this video. I feel they link better to the intro style and are certainly A LOT quicker for me to edit in the post production process. 0:30 - Intro 03:36 - 10 06:15 - 9 09:37 - 8 12:38 - 7 16:19 - 6 19:00 - 5 22:00 - 4 27:12 - 3 30:11 - 2 33:46 - 1 38:21 - Honorable Mentions

Podcast - S03E04 - MUSEUMS & EXPOS

Sorry for the long period without the sound of my voice.  . . . . was anyone losing sleep over that?

On today's episode, I talk about my experiences with Museum from Holy Grail Games and Downfall from Tasty Minstrel Games. Then I go over my future convention plans but focusing on my thoughts as we lead up to the UK Games Expo - has the appeal degraded for me over time or do I simply have an alternate reason for visiting compared to my early gaming days?

Journeys In Middle Earth Review

If I could be plagued by recording issues it happened here. Light batteries failing, my microphone not working despite being plugged in, etc. Thankfully I think I managed to salvage it in the editing room so hopefully this will still be a decent video for you.

This has been getting a major divisive reaction on social media, you either hate its guts or you love it to bits. Really? I expected this from other hyped games this year, but this wasn't the game I would have picked to receive it.

So as I adventure through Middle Earth, are these reactions justified or is there a middle ground?
