That Dead Island trailer was something moving, to be sure, but only one gaming related video on the internet this week managed to make me feel all kinds of morose and wonder why I don’t keep a bottle of hard liquor in my kitchen at all times.
Metropolis Street Racer confused and intrigued me. Project Gotham Racing just intrigued. PGR2 made me believe that online gaming on consoles could be a real thing. Geometry Wars made me glad to know that I wasn’t along in thinking retro games still had appealing factors. PGR3, PGR4, and the subsequent GW: Retro Evolved games were like a friendly nudge and a wink that said “we think it’s good, you know it’s good, stick with us; there’s more to see.” The Club made me hopeful that there were people interested in challenging the norms of the FPS genre. And Blur? Well, Blur was just cool. Thanks for the fun times, BC.
