Request for END/GAME articles

Post by Mantas » Mon Dec 11, 2006 5:47 pm

This is one of my fav parts of the mag, especially since I started a website about game endings a while back. I do have one request though. Could you please mention what format the game is on. It might be obvious to the writer and to people who've played the game, but I'm sure there are loads of us out there who have no idea on what console the game is on. That is all. Carry on troops.

I hate the game ending feature...
Why not tell us about the end of all the movies you've seen and books you have read and spoil them for us as well.. :evil:

One of the main reasons for completing a game is to see the end for YOURSELF..!!

This is a good point.

To me the end game is a bit uninteresting because who cares about the end of a game you haven't played to get. It is only really relevant to anyone who's played the game and got to the ending so they can reminisce. I could read the article one day and be completely non plussed, then play the game the next day, finish it and then actually want to see the ending because you're kind of in the zone then and its relevant.

(all above IMHO)

Agreed. I have a quick glance to see what the title is and if I feel that it is a game I am likely to try and complete one day (i.e - all of the ones featured so far!) then I look no further.

Sorry Dexter!

Glad you like it.

It's always arcade games which are covered though. :)
