taciturntactician asked: top 5 video games from the past 5 years

They still make video games!?  Fuuuuuuuuuuuu—-

I’m way out of touch with the new games scene, but I enjoyed these ones:

  1. Batman: Arkham Asylum
  2. Civilization V
  3. Donkey Kong Country Returns
  4. StarCraft II
  5. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

I recently came into possession of a lot of new games that I’m betting I will enjoy a lot, but I haven’t had time to play them all and determine if they belong in a top five list.  But let’s be honest… Bioshock Infinite is going to be up there.

They say they want politics out of video game coverage? OK, now we’re getting somewhere.
 
By politics, the voices calling for ethics reform really mean “progressive” politics. The so-called corruption that needs to be rooted out is a focus on “diversity” and the “magnitude of the human experience.” It should be no surprise that the outlets and voices specifically targeted by GamerGate are progressive. Baldwin was the first of several notable opportunists who, despite caring little for video games or video game culture, were more than happy to contribute to any movement that counted “SJWs” — that’s “social justice warriors,” for those of you out of the loop — as enemies. That “social justice warrior” is considered a pejorative at all speaks volumes about the motivations behind much of GamerGate and its fixation on progressive voices.
