Hello again, Nate’s dearest, darling doves.
Earlier this week I found myself reflecting on the fact that the content on this site is weighted rather heavily in favour of RPGs, and Squeenix in particular. This is a natural reflection of the gaming history and preferences of many of the staff, myself included. As a result, I often find myself zeroing in on RPG and Square stories when we are gathering news for the MAP and dismissing stories from other genres due to an assumed lack of interest on your part. I also tend to focus on RPGs when writing my weekly posts – this is perhaps more forgivable, as I cannot blog about games and genres I do not play and have no interest in.
In the interest of fairness, equity, and journalistic integrity (we haz it!) I would like to ask you guys: what genre or style of game do you like? What kinds of games do you want to hear and read about? Are you okay with the way we tend to favour RPGs, MMOs and Action/Adventure games? Do we have a closet contingent of Halo fans in our midst?
I have discussed this before, but other than my blatant Squeenix fangirlism, I am also a huge fan of Simulation games. I believe I addressed this in a previous article, where I confess to having a case of OCD, and I use that to justify my taste in games.
I really do want to know what kinds of games you folks like. I know that people do respond well to most of the content here, so presumably you are interested in the content that is discussed, but I am sure that there are holes in our coverage that can be filled, but only if we know about them! Unless the hole you want us to fill is the gaping black pit of despair where our Pokemon coverage should be, in which case, go jump down a well and drown yourself.
If I survive the week without Lusipurr murdering me, or sending ninjas to murder me, I might review the Sims expansions next week. Huzzah! Uh, unless you all hate Simulation games, in which case, I don’t know, I’ll play some stupid boy game with guns and soldiers and stuff and try to blather about that.
