Games After our article on modern gaming a while ago, we decided to dive futher into gaming. That's why I met up with one of my friends, and asked him if he could loan me the best game he had for his XBox 360. Maybe I should have been a bit more specific, I thought, because when he came over, before I knew it, he shoved a Japanese RPG in my console. This would be my first foray into the strange, magical, and disturbed world of the Japanese RPG. Read on for a review of Lost Odyssey.

OSNews readers play games. OSNews wants to service its readers. I like playing games. Do the math.

If you don't like an item, don't comment.

Fair enough but pick a more interesting game next time eh? And try to say something that hasn't been said in a million other places on the Internet. Game reviewing is a very crowded field.

I agree with Thom here. Though relatively new to OSNews, it's not a secret to me that a good chunk of those who work with operating systems, computers, and technology in general will also be attracted to video games, hence the review in order to appeal to these people-- notice it's just one review... not a sudden barrage of not-so-related content. It does seem to be more of a Page 2 item to me, however, but who am I to question?

"I like playing games"

after this review and "The crippled world of modern gaming" I'd like to see a review of a game that you actually like ;)

We hereby promise to put the words "Game Review" or somesuch into the title of any game review on this site so the on-topic police can avoid reading them.

Yes, that's exactly why I didn't use the tagging system, but just put "Game Review" in the title. I don't believe tags make it to the RSS feed.

"On-topic police". Now that's a keeper.

Of course I'm not. Who ever said I was? Just because I'm not as entertaining as Yahtzee, I'm somehow not entitled to write game reviews?

Yahtzee is entertainment, and he's pretty damn good at it. However, I want my game reviews to actually be useful.
