Post The Sunday Papers

Sundays are for watching the dying hours of a Kickstarter and making tea after tea. It's also for idly browsing the things that were written in the preceding days. What value might they display?
  • Splash Damage's Ed Stern wonders how much game criticism we need: 'Also, how much games criticism does anyone need? Or rather, how many people need any? Perhaps we already have enough. Most people who buy games aren't particularly interested in critical thinking about games, any more than moviegoers are close readers of film, or downloaders are fascinated by music criticism. They like the sound it makes in their lives, but they don't have to know how it works, or what it tells them about themselves. Most people like movies, but they want memories and making-of anecdotes and blooper reel gaffs to trade with their friends, they don't want to spend a day on set, or a week in edit. Maybe we already have all the game criticism there's any actual demand for.' (moreā?¦)
