Diablo III's launch is breathtaking in its lack of either concern or competence (your pick).
The Breakout genre has a fundamental problem with lack of player agency causing long stretches of player boredom and frustration. Shatter solved this problem - please take heed if you're going to make a new Breakout game.
Players and reviewers who really hate Lord of the Rings: War in the North don't seem to realize there's a dodge button. This is not their fault.
Sometimes you play a game that's a revelation. 'Tiny Wings' was like that for one touch gaming. 'Bastion' is that game for audio.
There was one single, easy thing Epic Mickey could have done to make it a much better game, make players much happier, and boost metacritic scores 10-20 points: minimizing the penalty for death.
I'm playing Crackdown again and finding I enjoy it more than Assassin's Creed 2, InFAMOUS, or Uncharted 2. Those are all great games, but crippled by the demands of plot.
