I read books, play video games, and watch TV. I have opinions about most of what I consume that way. And I like to write those opinions down.
However, I find reviews saying ‘I love it’ or ‘I hate it’ pretty useless, so I do things differently. Instead, I try to look at why something does or does not work for me. Are the characters internally consistent? Does the plot make sense? What writing smells does the story have.
That way, you know not just if I liked it, but it should help you determine if you will like it. I hope.

25 years go, Final Fantasy VII came to the original Playstation. Last summer, the Playstation 5 version of the remake came out. I’ve never played the original Final Fantasy VII, but I like JRPGs as much as the next guy, so this was as good a time as any to jump on board.

In 2009, Team Ico announced The Last Guardian at E3, accompanied by a video. I’d played Shadow of the Colossus and was very excited. It looked gorgeous and Shadow of the Colossus was awesome. I finally played it on the PS5 recently.
