The problem with choices matter video games

I’m a huge fan of the whole “your choices matter” games but more often then not you see people complaining that actually… Your choices don’t really matter.

Sometimes what they mean is basically they wanted a scene to go one way and it just couldn’t no matter what we want and other times maybe they just don’t see what changes they are enacting along the way.

So can we ever get a choices matter game that actually makes everyone happy (bar obviously the plot being perfect because no one will ever agree on stories…)

WARNING : There are minor spoilers for Life is Strange 1, 2 and BtS as well as Game of Thrones below. They were basically the three games I remember well enough to comment on but also to make my point I had to give a few plot details away.

5 Things… With MKXI upon us here are our favourite characters from the Mortal Kombat franchise

I do not hide the fact that I am a Mortal Kombat fan and I am very much looking forward to the release of Mortal Kombat XI. I already have had a play around with the Beta Test and can’t wait to get to play the entire thing with all the old and new characters.

But with so many characters in its history who are the ones I love the most.

Don’t worry I banned Scorpion and Sub Zero from my own list because we all know how much those lovely Ninja Boys are beloved anyway.

Kingdom Hearts 3

You might have guessed a long time ago that I am a huge fan of the Kingdom Heart series, it might not surprise you then that this week I basically spent two and a bit days playing this in its entirety to finally finish this chapter of the Kingdom Hearts story.

Here is a review with no story details really just information that has been out there for a long time. Battle mechanics and worlds I guess are the two biggies. I won’t name returning characters or any plot point… That comes in its own spoiler post later on!
