When does story detract from — or enhance — your gameplay experience?
I can become more or less interested in a game based entirely on its story.
How long does it take you to know if you like a game?
Some games, I knew instantly they were going to be games I would play over and over again. World of Warcraft actually had me within minutes of my then-girlfriend showing it to me.
What games do you love despite their glaring flaws?
Look, I would never tell you that every game I love is perfect, or even good.
What games do you play for consolation?
It has been a really terrifying, hellish month and it's only the third day of it as I write this, and so, as a coping mechanism I've been playing a lot of Fallout 4. Yes, that's right, I deal with stress by playing a game where humanity blew up the world.
