I found the answer in a post on a random forum after a friend of mine accidentally triggered stage 2 whilst I had spent 45 minutes going in circles :lol:

P.S. I always like when someone comments on these things after I spend literally hours writing them because if I know people have read it it doesnt feel like a waste of time typing it up.

I read all posts in this thread.

Also, I never knew that "Saturn Bomberman" was literally the name of a game. I thought people simply used it as shorthand for "that Bomberman game on Sega Saturn"...

Transbot was the second game I owned for my SMS back in 86. I'm pretty sure it tells you in the manual how to get underground.

Edit: guess not. I have no idea how I figured it out. I guess I took that last line to heart.

Yes yes, I'm aware that calling a game like Cities "beaten" is silly as it goes on forever. But there are certainly 'goals.' I had decided that I'd call it beat when I had achieved all the Milestones, as those are the things that give you the Congratulations! screens. Effectively, these were the 'chapters' in my mind. The final Milestone was to get a population of 65,000 which I pulled off in 17 hours. There's still plenty of random buildings to unlock as well as achievements (though some require you to play bad instead). So like any good city builder, there's hours and hours of more content ahead. Ultimately, I found this to be a brilliant game. Both compelling and relaxing. I'm sure I'll dump in many more hours in the coming months, and I consider this one of the best games of the year thus far.

For awhile I've felt like verbally describing the games I've been finishing has been a losing wager. I don't have much fun writing it up, and it's not of particular interest to anyone.

So, I've decided to do something different with this; it's happening in two ways.

Way number 1, I'll be giving a discrete opinion with some classifications I've made. This will be represented by one of three icons, defined (ish) here:

Image I liked it / It was good
Image I didn't like it / It was bad / Very disappointing
Image Didn't move me / Meh / It was alright

Way number 2, I'll include an anecdote, reference, picture, meme, or whatever, to further describe the way I think about the game, convey the feeling it gave me, or what I think can represent what the game means, in general.

All of this is entirely subjective on my part, and the reader's part (virtually independent of one another). I don't expect any one else to understand this post and that's fine. I hope people do enjoy this, as it's pretty silly, but can still convey some thoughts more succinctly than long winded paragraphs.

People will agree, disagree, and think I'm an idiot. That's fine.
So, here we go.

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture- PS4 *new*

Total: 53

Previously: 2014 | The First 400 Games

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture was probably my most anticipated game of the past 3 years or so, as I absolutely adored the aesthetic and narrative marriage that was Dear Esther and found the sparing amount of interaction in that game to fit perfectly with the design. That game created some emotional resonance for me that has yet to be matched.

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture is a different game from its predecessor in many ways, though at its heart it is still a slow walk through beautiful landscapes with minimal player input. That said, there is a fair bit more to interact with in Rapture than there was in Dear Esther, and there's a more involved and straightforward story that is uncovered along the way. The game is split up into "chapters" that each focus on the story of an individual character, and they are all woven together very nicely by the end. Without giving too much away, I can say that I felt compelled to finish the game in two sittings.

If Dear Esther made me alternately awestruck and overcome, Everyone's Gone to the Rapture made me feel alternately engrossed and depressed. Those emotions fit better for this longer game (Rapture is closer to 5-6 hours compared to Dear Esther's 1.5-2 hours), but what both games have in common is creating an intense sense of solitude and corresponding despair, mitigated with moments of sheer beauty and wonder. I love that the medium has reached a place where these kinds of experience are possible, profitable, and on the rise - I strongly recommend the game to anyone looking for something different from standard genre titles.

Totally agree. I just finished this one and it had some major problems, but it's mostly summed up by: need moar.
Let strength be granted, so the world might be the world might be mended.
