So many games filled with candles, always lit even when discovering ancient ruins. And not just candles but lamps and torches also! I’ve always wondered who lights them all just in time for play-through… now we know.
It’s amazing how much camaraderie such a dark game has inspired… and also the music can describe the excitement of going back in for more fun even if as I prefer you explore the world in singleplayer.
loolz… games and reality… mixing in inappropriate ways :))
What a wonderfully strange surreal world/experience/universe this 1997 game managed to create! And the soundtrack is as crazy and varied as the world, with each piece fitting so well into the moment in the story it was placed in.
As a history and economics lover I might nitpick, but it’s true, you do learn the most surprising things from games sometimes… it’s not like school learning, and it might be fluffed over sometimes, but on the other side it’s actually personal and interesting enough that you actually become curious of the subject matter. For example every time I played Civilization 3/4/5 I was impressed at how much research they must’ve done and how I could look at history with new perspectives and a deeper understanding exactly because it wasn’t just a retelling but a reinventing.
