I recently picked up Mass Effect 1 + 2 from Steam during their Summer Sale, and a few months prior I picked up Darksiders for the PS3. Intermixed with them has been some StarCraft 2 gaming, and even a little World of World via soem free game time. Playing these games – Mass Effect and Darksiders in particular – got me thinking about how story and your control over it really affect your overall satisfaction with a game.
Here’s something I haven’t done in a while: talked about video games. Erich convinced me to pick up WoW?????? two months ago, and, while I’ve been more or less enjoying it, it definitely doesn’t feel like it has that “hold” potential where I won’t get bored with it soon.

This comic pretty much says it all….Mario Party always did have those quirky things that just pissed me off so much that I wouldn’t even feel like looking at the game’s case for the months to come.
My little brother asked me to play Super Smash Brothers Melee with him. Fifteen minutes of button mashing and I was through; I’d imagine the game to be more entertaining if you knew moves for your character. Unfortunately, picking the game up once every few months doesn’t embolden yourself with such knowledge. I remember playing Super Smash Brothers back on Nintendo 64; that was quite the party game.
