I would like to point out that the people in horizon zero dawn are not native americans. Tribal does not mean native american.

You're friends with a cannibal? Mind giving a name? The FBI would love to have a chat with him, I'm sure; that shit is extraordinarily illegal and for good reason.

53) Golden Axe III (NES) (2.5) (7/9) (~45 minutes)

Jackal is an absolute classic. Not much better on the NES in its style. Peak Konami stuff. It's been a while since I went through. Well, maybe not a while, but long enough to get my head handed to me in the last stage and cough up all those extra lives I had. Got to the last boss with none left... and proceeded to actually beat it. I don't think I've ever done that before, but it's definitely a great feeling when you go into clutch mode.

And then there's Golden Axe III. I didn't screw up when I said NES, I played the Chinese pirate version. It's pretty terrible, but in a quaint sort of way. As bad as the hit detection is, there's still a bit of a rule on how it all works, so you can do pretty well. And magic is really powerful, insta-killing any non-boss enemy. At least that was the case with the warrior woman. A weird, but strangely enjoyable run through an objectively bad game.

He doesn't practice it in the US as a US citizen but came from a tribe of them. They didn't kill people either. They mostly ate wildlife. The people part came when one of their own passed. This is the usual reaction anyway. yeah I know it's weird I don't like it but knowing one I don't fear them. People fear what they don't understand.

Like when people are so afraid of another guy I knew he was big 6'5" 280 and I'm about a foot shorter. He has Schizophrenia who went to prison for beating up a dude who mocked him.People treated him badly or ignored him/mocked him like people do to me since they feel the need to belittle and just don't understand people like us. Didn't fear the guy and we became more than neighbors.

So much wrong with this. I could get into it's problems just going to let you mock me about it because I no longer care. I'll just leave Dia's article a Native herself.

It's simply 100% wrong. "Tribal" has been a way of describing people long before Europeans even knew there was another continent, let alone began a discourse on North American tribal peoples.

Until Dawn is absolutely supposed to be an homage to '80's horror films. If the tropes in it seem tired or tried or even insensitive, it's because they are on purpose. They're hearkening back to a time when films like that were everywhere, and they're trying to cater to the people who grew up with them and are familiar with those tropes. If the ideas in its story seem dated, it's because they're intended to feel 30+ years old.

Not exactly sure what you're trying to get at with that article (which while it does have some valid points, I'm not exactly sure what audience it's aiming for, especially dropping it here in this context). I gotta support BMF's line though. While yes, Horizon clearly takes themes from Native cultures, the characters themselves aren't ethnically associated with those traditions. So far as I can tell, they're just supposed to be ambiguous humans, separated from our time's ethnic labels.

I would also like to make it very clear that I was in no way mocking Segata or making light of his mental illness. I take that stuff very seriously and would not in any way infer that I was joking about that. I was simply stating that the people of Horizon are of a broad ethnic population.

Brothers a Tale of Two Sons-PS4 disc version.

I beat this on Steam maybe when it came out but remembered so little. I been playing how many emotions is people games. RiME,Abzu and now Brothers a 2nd time but nearly felt like my first. Journey collection arrives tomorrow.

The game is better than I remember and appreciated it much more this time even if one of the few things I remembered is a big plot point. It's less artsy in visuals than those others but everything else and even a bit more is there for it's story telling. I just love how these games tell a story without any real dialogue. The music,atmosphere is great. Yeah it's a little clunky with the controls but it's not bad just a learning curve. I only had a slight issue with one part late in the game but it was more about my brain getting mixed up. I feel this is a game everyone should try.

Can't deny I'm a bit of a sucker for these. I mentioned before but I LOVE rain on PS3. Stylized with lower case and is a similar kind of game. Lost in Shadow from Hudson on Wii is another. Majin & The Forsaken Kingdom is not quite a game like these in narrative as it has VA and dialogue. The game play and characters are very much aiming for the same thing however. It's funny because while Ico made these kind of games popular..always felt those games played horribly. I also don't know if these games existed before Ico. I'm glad Ico happened even if I didn't enjoy it. Anyhoo Brothers is a fantastic game and should try it or if you played it but been a while,play it again.
