The Best Video Game Stories of 2011 by Lost Link

best stories

2011 was a good year for video games with a lot of big releases during the last quarter. I haven’t even been able to start a few that I wanted to play (thanks Skyrim!). Unlike one of my notorious accomplices b-rock, I try to dedicate my time to a single gaming experience before moving on to the next. I feel more immersed and focused on the game’s story and characters. That, or my memory won’t allow me to save multiple princesses at once. But as the year is up I must pause and reflect upon the games that have stood out among the crowd and captured my imagination.

Shadow Chie x Shadow Yukiko by caria0

It’s also Lost Link’s birthday but who cares because all he played was Persona 4 and no other Megaten. Also Yukiko can’t compare to Teddie, NOT ONE BIT.

Musings of Mudora – III: Women in Games; Blast from the Past

zelda

So in my eighteenth century literature class we talked a lot about women and how they were treated pretty poorly, what with their husbands ruling them like kings, and having them restricted to non-thinking and non-talking activities. One of my favorite things was this laughably bad women’s “conduct” book (obviously written by a male) which literally instructed women on how to behave in various situations. I think my favorite quote came in a section informing women on what to do, should they catch their husbands doing something wrong. You know, maybe you caught him sneaking sweets before dinner, or macking on some lass outside, or punching an old man in the ear. Whatever the case, the gist of the rule is to “Do not seem to look or hear that way“.
