Because knowing a plot twist exists (like it does in countless games and movies) is the same as being surprised by what it actually is? No.

“A plot twist at the end of Drizzlepath caught me by surprise”

Thanks to your spoiler, it will no longer catch by surprise anyone who read this article.

Gone Home and Dear Ester seems to have spawned a bunch of these “games”. Unfortunately this one is nothing like those excellent titles, completely devoid of anything interesting and makes that hour seem like an eternity.

Actually, I also don’t agree with your description of Latha. She’s clearly shown to have the same self destructive behavior as other Trancers. She says herself that she often skips meals because she’s trancing and a few people comment on how undernourished she is. According to one of her email, she’s supposed to go out to meet a Job councilor to keep receiving her benefits but she hasn’t been there. She avoids going out of her apartment as much as possible. 

I don’t feel that she’s less negatively affected as other Trancer like the blond girl in the Den who has dropped out of university because of the Trance…

Maybe the only thing that gives the impression that she’s not negatively affected is that the voice chosen and the character drawn is on the cute side and doesn’t suggest that she is malnourished? And maybe the fact that uses the lotus position to Trance?

Actually, Max Lao does have a backstory and is not an ordinary girl wanting to become a Police Officer. They mention a few times how Regis met Max Lao and she also mentions her education.  (Trying not to put spoilers in the comment, so I’m being as vague as possible..)

I didn’t say I didn’t, I just like when things are different from the usual mold.

This isn’t a horror game.

And your question is ridiculous.

All of your negatives I would apply to Gone Home easily. Mediocre voice acting, weak story and characters, no tension, and dud of an ending… if there was a character who was gay in this game would it receive higher marks? Personally a Gone Home-style game that’s actually a horror game would be pretty neat to play so I’m taking this review with a grain of salt.

“The music is thankfully not electronic or techno, which often tend to get lumped in with the cyberpunk genre.”

You probably won’t belive me, but many of us actually like techno and electronic music.

Played it and I must say that it dosen’t deserve it’s cult status. It’s simply not that good.
The mechanics of the game work well. It’s the charm and style that’s kinda of boring. The story is ok, but so cliche and it’s gets silly too.

I really like this style of playing. It’s very immersive to solve puzzles in 1st person with a physics based engine.
I also like the dark or eerie style - but it would be cool to see a 1st person puzzle game like myst in a “lighter” setting.

I liked Yesterday very much, so I’m somewhat intrigued. I hope it won’t be casualized too much. Also the new Microids has not yet proven itself for me so I’m on the fence. But anyway, being longtime Pendulo supporter I’m happy they are alive and working. Maybe we’ll see Day One one day as well, or maybe its story has integrated into Yesterday Origins?

I like Becky’s description of the enivornmental effects. The animations aren’t something you can see in the screenshots.

“Taking the noir influence even further, a “1954 Mode” accessible from the settings menu applies a sepia-toned filter over the graphics…”

That seems like an odd choice, since photographs from 1954 were not normally sepia-toned. A sepia tint would be more appropriate if the game took place in the 1920’s or earlier. Old photos from the 1950’s are normally either plain black-and-white or with colors faded with age, with blue tints being faded the most. They don’t have a sepia tint.

This list is all wrong in my opinion, it seems to be based on popularity rather than actually good games.
Just look at the top 5 - Theses games are all good, but other games are just far superior.

Im just using this to find good games without thinking about the ranking
