I am a full-time Games/Multimedia-programmer for a large german Toy Company since 2007.

In my spare time, I love to play games (a lot), currently Dark Souls 2 & Hearthstone. I have three Sons who are all passionate gamers, too.

You made some good points, but I 'm not entirely convinced that the labels active / reactive , weak/powerful cover the spectrum. r n r nImo it boils down to the Degrees of Freedom your stealthgamedesign prepares for your players. And I agree: the Arkham Series is pretty much a ...

I can completely see mobile devices replacing consoles shortly because of their benefits. r n r nDefine replacing. If you mean: Someone who sees gaming as an important hobby or is playing compettitve will ever touch BF/COD/CS on a mobile device...No chance. r n r nWhy should I shell out ...
