Gamer's Manifesto

I don't really have to say much to introduce this article, someone really has some console-driven anger.

most of that i heartily agree with, but the save anywhere thing is pretty bullshit.

yeah a lot of that stuff would be cool IN SOME GAMES, but utterly lame in others. the "no health bars, scores, etc..." thing bothers me, but it could work in some cases.

"Instant-Failure Stealth Levels. Ack. This brings back horrible memories of a Goldeneye level where if you tripped an alarm, an infinite number of bad guys poured forth. We knew a man who failed that level 37 times, then got the Infinite Health cheat for it and came back. He intentionally tripped the alarm, the guards rushed out. Laughing maniacally, he proceeded to shoot those fuckers for four hours, killing 1,183 of them - 682 with groin shots - before his thumbs cramped up. Your game should not create this kind of bitterness."

Oh god... that was a VERY satisfying level...

i agree with pretty much everything, and the crate issue is pretty much the funniest/dead on.

I like the point about save points, its very true, I fought my way through FF8 through the same level and in addition to the faked graphics >.< that was also talked about. Anyway, i recall another annoying stealth thing, in Deus Ex and there was some in metal gear solid.

btw, my avatar is from the original Clock Tower, the like, FIRST survival horrow game, I highly suggest downloadenation, its legal cuz only its sequels are liscensed in America. you can find a translation online easy.

actually, the first (legitimate) SH game is technically Alone in the Dark, though it's kinda cheesy and unfrightening at this point (there are somethings that might make you jump because they pop out of nowhere, but as far as being atmospherically creepy, nope)

three clock tower games came out in the U.S. 1 and 2 for PSX and 3 for PS2... is there one that came before the original for PSX that only released in Japan?

Tips:

1. see anything moving in the room when you enter, run

2. if you hear a sound not unlike a 3 foot long pair of garden sheers opening an closing, run.

3. Examine EVERYTHING, except mirrors

4. The parrot is saying "I'll get you" he is evil, if you free him, he will attempt to destroy you, when you are finished flailing your arms like a big whiney crybaby, get the little shit in the bed sheets

5. The dog in the cave, also evil, you'll need a robe and perfume to get by him.

6. rocks break down weak walls.

7. Use the car keys (found next to the car) on the car three times to drive.

8. he's in the back seat.

9. unless you do something first
