And we're back again with another installment in the ongoing "Hey Telltale, Whatcha Been Playing" series, a look at what games our team plays and what draws them to those particular titles! As Jurassic Park is just a few weeks away from launch, this episode (because Telltale is all about episodic content) delves into the recent gaming habits of Jurassic Park: The Game designer Mark Darin.
Here's what Mark had to say:
"I’m a sucker for action-adventure games, especially ones that have a unique cinematic presentation to their storytelling. Strangely, the games I’m playing right at this moment are all HD re-mastered versions of older games. Last night I finished up the God of War: Origins collection; hi-res versions of the two God of War games that were originally released for the PSP. Those games are like candy for me - horrible, bloody, face pounding candy. The visuals are so slick and the gameplay is super smooth. I know there is a story being told as well but I just get sucked into the visceral experience.
On the other hand, I’m also re-playing through the amazing HD re-releases of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. These games are fantastic examples of cinematic storytelling in games for me. Even with almost no dialog, these games immerse you into a fascinating world and really make one care about the characters in a truly emotional way. The gameplay can sometimes be frustrating to me, but the way it supports the narrative and creates a holistic experience is truly masterful!
The next games on my playlist: Batman: Arkham City and Uncharted 3."
