Games Not too long ago, I was convinced that the modern day gaming world was a rather empty and shallow one. If you grew up with games like The 7th Guest, the Keen series, Metroid, adventure games like Monkey Island or Full Throttle, and so on, more modern games seemed to have little to offer, besides yet another nameless hero in a grey space suit killing aliens in a grey world with the same set of twelve weapons. However, a little speck of hope was flickering on the horizon, a game seemingly made by people who could read my mind; a game about a post-apocalyptic wasteland, filled with quests and epic stories, where you were free to do whatever you wanted. Yes, I looked forward to Fallout 3, and since my computer was too old to run any game more recent than Wolfenstein, I decided to buy a game console. Read on to see how my venture into the world of modern gaming turned out.

The games I have enjoyed most had a great sense of humour. Malcolm's revenge was lots of fun with the laugh track and snappy one liners... "what are all these idiots doing here". Monkey island had that scene where the parents appear as skeletons and start singing "the arm bone is connected to the ... bone". What a laugh. I'm not opposed to death in games, in grim vandango you are dead from the start but the game still has a nice warmth about it.
