  1. There are more than 4,000 games on the Switch.  Many of those will be shovelware, but that still leaves a load of very good entries in just about every genre of game.  The only type of game I can think of that isn't well represented is realistic driving simulator.

  2. I've never played on an OG X-box, a Jaguar, a 3DO, PC Engine CD or Neo Geo CD.

     

    Only had a Saturn, Neo Geo AES, and PC Engine when they were years past their actual days in the shops.

     

    Apart from that, I've had just about every console except for a few from hallowed antiquity.  The first console we ever had was the Phillips Videopac.  I've never used an Intellivision or an Atari 2600 / 5200 or 7800.

     

    Our computer of choice was a Spectrum 48k, but I frequently played on other people's C64s and BBCs.

  3. I'm another who doesn't really care about stories.  In Skyrim, for example, I never really knew why Alduin was trying to take over the world.  I just turned up, grabbed whatever item I was told to get / spoke to or murdered whomever the game said was important, and then went on the next place.  I played Ass Creed, Yakuza / Judgment etc in the same way.  It doesn't work for Phoenix Wright games, of course, but in those games figuring out the story literally is the gameplay.  Otherwise, stories need a tldr summary of where are we going, who are we killing and what are we looking for.

  4. Doors which can't be opened when you're looking for a way in / out.

     

    It's particularly annoying when you're carrying more than enough dynamite, grenades, C4, rocket launchers blah blah blah to blow the bloody door off its hinges and into splinters.  But the game insists that you have to get out through the designated exit.

  5. Sega Manx TT Superbike is great fun, despite its tiny selection of tracks.  Cheap as Saturn games get as well.

     

    Slipstream has provided me with quite a few hours of fun.

     

    I've never played an Asphalt game that I didn't think was shite.

     

     

  6. Theme Brother / Two Point Brothel.  Build rooms, hire reception staff and hookers to satisfy the punters.  Do you scrimp on advertising and stick leaflets under windscreen wipers, or do you hire a programmer to design a website?  Will you splash out on that fully equipped S&M dungeon for premium-rate paying customers, or just beds for vanilla ones who pay less?  Work your one up from one Essex streetwalker trying to fund her next fix of crack all the way to luxurious premises catering for wealthy (but perverted) tycoons and politicians.

     

    I've long thought this would be fun.
