2013 in Video Gaming

Leave a comment

2013 was an interesting year in gaming. It saw the launch of two new consoles – three if you count the Ouya1. More and more independent titles came onto the market, many of them achieving a great deal of both critical and commercial success. There were more options than ever before for gamers, and there was no possible way I could play every single release I wanted to.

Game Review: Antichamber


As is the case with all game reviews on this blog, this review will assume that you’ve played the game, i.e. it may contain spoilers.

Imagine if I asked you to guess a number between 1 and 100. At first, you guess a few numbers at random: 22. 53. 71. 96. At each one, I shake my head and tell you to guess again. So you decide to go through every integer from 1 to 100, one by one. I still shake my head at each number. Frustrated, you start yelling out non-integers: 50 1/2. 3 1/4. 67.9. I’m still shaking my head. Eventually, after much guessing, you finally yell out π3. Yup, that’s it, I say. I give you a self-satisfied smirk that suggests you should have guessed the answer sooner. You punch me in the face.
