The return 2

28 Dec

Real life had once again got in the way of Real Life Game Reviews.

I have moved from the UK to Australia, which is awesome. I have spent much of my time driving around and looking at kangaroos, but now Christmas has arrived I have bought myself a TV and a PS4.

I have said goodbye to my Xbox 360 and to be honest, I am happier with the PS4. I think the main reason for this is the nostalgia. i grew up with a PlayStation and a PlayStation 2 and I always sort of felt like a traitor.

The timing has been bad due to the online service hacks, but thankfully there are some great single player games knocking about

Let the reviews commence.

Introducing Real Life Game Reviews

I review games based on their real life practicalities. Can you turn it off and pay attention to your girlfriend? Can your mates join in? Will your parents be offended by the content? Will the game piss you off? The categories are shown below.

I have written several reviews that I will be releasing over the next few weeks based on the blogs popularity. Let me know what you think.

the GFThe Girlfriend test

How much freedom the game gives you to turn it off and go do the laundry. The test considers how much the game allows you to play for an undeterminable amount of time while your girlfriend does her make-up. It also rates how important sound is – will your girlfriends hairdryer be the matter of life and death for your character?

mate emblemThe Mate test

You are playing the game and your housemate walks in and they are uneducated in gaming. This test is a mix of the coolness rating, pick-up-and-play-ability, and most importantly: same console multiplayer. Anything that could be called ‘gayyyyy’ loses points in this test.

The Parent TestThe Parent test

Imagine you have parents that are easily offended – especially by sexual themes and swearing; and at random intervals they invade your room. They are now used to violence.

inner rage emblemThe Inner Rage test

You have had a bad day and you want to feel a sense of achievement. This section talks about how frustrating them game is.

Overall

I rate games on a number of factors such as graphics, storyline, entertainment and longevity; the real life tests are considered but they do not necessarily affect the final result.
