Our good friends at SEEN have asked me to contribute a regular column about videogames and what we came up with was Required Playing, a weekly (or so) guide to the games, new and old, that you should be playing but probably aren’t. The debut column, up now, is a primer for what exactly to expect, a syllabus if you will:
…The touchstones, those universal videogame experiences, are all well and good, but we can only talk about them for so long before the words turn meaningless in our mouths…There are only so many ways we can say how we loved Red Dead Redemption. So many hundreds of thousands of words are written about the games we are already playing, it is time focus on the games that fall through the cracks.
It’s going to be an interesting trip. Click the beardo to take a look, tell Jeremy we said, “Hi” and let me know what you think!
