I've bought a few new games recently: Pokémon Y, Kingdom Hearts 1.5, New Super Luigi U and Infinity Blade III. But, honestly, I haven't had a lot of time to play any of them. I've been immersed at work in front of a computer screen.
Way back in March when I was at the PAX Gaming Festival in Boston, I got a chance to play several amazing games before they were ready for store shelves. One of those games, Story War, is finally available.
Today, most video games are released for the Xbox, the PlayStation and PC. The experience is largely the same on all three of these platforms, so it doesn’t really matter where you play the game. In the 1980s and ‘90s, however, games were often exclusive to one console or another, so unless you had multiple consoles, your gaming experience may have been very different from your neighbor’s.
The Xbox and Playstation are great platforms for huge, cinematic, big-budget action games. However, the PC is a big sandbox for people who really want to experiment with the medium and make games that may be more art than game.
