Post Dear Videogames, Stop Telling Me Everything



When I beat the absolutely wonderful Thirty Flights Of Loving over the weekend, I had precisely one immediate reaction: 'Wait, what just happened?' I cannot even begin to tell you how much that excites me. But then I decided to write an article about it, largely because one of my greatest passions in life is defying nonsencial figures of speech. At any rate, Thirty Flights Of Loving packs loads of information into not-even-30-minutes with hardly any dialog or exposition. But, in some ways, it's even more of a supposed 'un-game' than, say, Modern Warfare 3. I mean, all agency is illusory. Without spoiling anything (note: that'll happen a little bit after the break), you're along for the ride ' and that's it. In a couple bits, it doesn't even matter where you walk. The game will just jump-cut you to your intended location.

So why is it one of my absolute favorite games ' and yes, I one hundred percent believe it's a game ' of the year? Because it made me think about what happened. No, scratch that. It required me to think.
