Hi Miles. Thank you so much for your kind words. Hearing that you enjoyed the work enough to sign up and leave a comment means the world to me! I’m no journalist, but I hope that I present my own biases clearly enough that they aren’t used as a tool to control my reader, but inform them of the perspective they lend. Thanks again!
Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to respond, Peter. I really appreciate it whenever someone reads a piece I wrote and hope that despite not being a journalist, my take on the matter was presented clearly.
Hey Kizito! Thank you so much for reading and your thoughtful response.
I totally agree that folks sometimes lose sight of games being games. I’m so glad that the medium is taken more seriously now than ever before and that some games are able to incorporate these sweeping narratives and personal stories, but I can’t help…
I think your ideas of consolidating content are dead on. Rather than expanding OSRS, Jagex would be better suited shrinking it. Leave wholly new content in the new versions of the game and use the smaller playerbase of OSRS to test “remixes” of the landscape. Why not move minigames into dead towns? Why not make Gnome Stronghold smaller?
Thank you so much! It’s a strange company, with an even stranger history, but that’s where a lot of the beauty comes from. I think there might also be an appeal to jumping onto a dying Dreamcast just in it being a hip thing. Like I was a little hipster before I even knew what the word meant.
