That’s What They Said – Games Are Best When Things Go Wrong

Jim Rossignol, over on Rock Paper Shotgun, has described how the games that keep yanking the floor out from under his feet are the ones he keeps going back to. I agree wholeheartedly with that sentiment, and the possible masochism it implies, but he really had me when he mentioned XCOM. (It doesn’t hurt that I’ve been wanting to try out FTL and Day Z for quite awhile, either!) If those tidbits of information combined with the quote ‘death-simulation anecdote generator’ aren’t enough to make you click on this link and read it yourself, you’re doing it wrong.
