    Excellent but far too hard for me. It makes me feel old. I'm also not really getting on with Bloodstained - there's something lacking about it and I can't put my finger on it yet.
  2. I hadn't noticed before or had forgotten just how many small moments happen between characters that informs their relationships later. Also, BoB really is a who's who of up and coming young talent. Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy to name just a few.

    Well, guess I'll try this out then. £2 for Bloodstained is too good to pass up for a punt on it.
  4. It's just a shame the encoding on Prime video is so shit now.
  5. I guess if @Ork1927 updates the first post with specific date ruling he wants people to follow then everyone can just follow that specific guideline and update their lists accordingly. IMDB date seems reasonable.
  6. So we're going by IMDB date when it comes to foreign language films that may have come out over here later for example? I only ask @Ork1927 because I would absolutely put down Princess Mononoke if I was going by the 2001 UK release. I'd imagine IMBD release makes most sense.
  7. My overriding memory of SF4 is getting just about good enough with Dan to troll people with him online. So you could argue not necessarily for the better.
  8. Didn't you ever wonder who they sent after Agent 47?
  9. The key question to ask about specifically holding up certain games for being narratively great examples of the medium, is does it use the fact that it's a game to do things with the story that you could not achieve in a film version of it? I'd say The Last of Us definitely does have specific intentions in the story that are meant to work because you're a willing participant, but there are so so many better examples of certain interactions in games producing unique emotional interactive experiences, and often in tighter and less self-important packages. Shadow of the Colossus, Journey, and Portal to name just a few.

    For the octopus in the family.
  11. The best story ever told in a video game is clearly Full Throttle. Also, Nier: Automata (now that I've had my road to revelation with it) does things that makes The Last of Us look narratively extremely safe and pedestrian.
