We've narrowed down some of our distaste for certain popular games, especially from the past: they were made for kids. And kids' media can be sublime! But what makes a piece of kids' media, game or not, good or bad? What turns us off? How do they approach issues of ethics or morality? How much do they condescend?
We also answer your questions and read your responses to September's games: BugSnax, Metal Gear Solid V, and Carrion.
October's games are:
- The Evil Within 2
November's games are:
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- Half-Life: Alyx
