Keith's Crappy Videogame Blog


Hi. I spend a lot of time playing videogames. I’m a fool for them. I’m an adult and have a life too, so I might not be as addicted as your average 14-year-old, but I manage. I also have a critical mind (I’m an associate professor of English by trade, so I know absolutely nothing about how videogames are made). Nevertheless, when I play, I can’t help but think a lot about a game: the organizational structure; the narrative strengths and weaknesses; the voicework, sound effects, and music; the graphics; and all the other work I should be doing.  I compare the games I play–can’t help it. And while you’ll find me writing about any number of triple-A titles (for several consoles or PC) on this blog, I am especially a sucker for those little-known, oft-berated, bottom-shelf games that a total of 50 other people on the planet have bothered picking up (usually by mistake). I mean, I’m talking about blockbuster titles like “Scorpion: Disfigured,” “You Are Empty,” and “Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler’s Green”…games that a lot of reviewers, well, might not actually call games? I hold these little crappy gems close to me–unless of course they stink to high heaven, then I skewer them. But I’ll discuss everything I play in some regards–especially my thoughts AS I AM PLAYING, rather than simply waiting to toss out my $.02 after a game is completed. That’s my plan, anyway.

Hi… I am Ali, 23 medical intern… enough about me now.. so, I don’t know how I ended up here but it must have been me googling “games set in Russia” or something in a series pathetic efforts to escape the facts that 90% of the games (yeah done my research) features an American or Western guy. Anyway, I ended up buy a few of the games on the site Necrovision (WW1 ? seriously ) The Hunt (yeah found it.. French but English dubbed.. horrray) and a couple of others. Man I am lost.. so yeah.. I am wondering… have u heard of Cryostasis ? It’s Russian , FPS, Not Triple A, but well written and easily found.. this game deserves your attention.
