Re: can of worms

Those who want to blow shit up are the conservatives... Those who want beauty, slowness and simple enjoyment are the radicals. We want to see the game format evolve into something pluralistic, with many voices and activities, and many dreamworlds to inhabit.

Just want to endorse these sentiments entirely!

I'll check out your recommendations now.

Re: can of worms

I'm a huge fan of thatgamecompany. After fl0w, there's also Flower. I've heard very good things about Braid also, as an indie title. In the same vein as Afrika (Hakuna Matata in the Asian release), there's Aquanaut's Holiday (PS3) and Endless Ocean (Wii). There's a downloadable title for the PS3 called Shikitei that allows you to grow your own garden and take pictures as well. While I'm not on the inside of the development industry, I have frequented a lot of gaming boards on the net, and have seen lots of negative sentiment expressed toward these types of games. They're basically considered "non-games," whatever that means. Hope that helps.
