I’ve appreciated when people take the time to write reviews and highlight connections to other good works. This is an in-progress list that I’ll update over the course of the year. Previously: 2014 2015 2016 2017Continue this post
I’ve appreciated when people take the time to write reviews and highlight connections to other good works. This post was written in one go at the end of 2017. I didn’t keep good track of the games, so that’s spotty and may be updated in 2018 as I’m reminded of them, but is otherwise complete. Previously: 2014 2015 2016Continue this post
Crashes after the Valve logo. Apparently it fails to detect that it doesn’t support my video card. This is the first time I’ve bought commercial software in about five years, and it’s pretty sad that free, open source software has better forums and FAQs and such when I have to grovel around online because something blew up.
Steam is the hoop you have to jump through to get Portal. At no time when installing Steam, running Steam, browsing for games, viewing Portal’s listing, purchasing Portal, downloading Portal, or installing Portal did it notice that they don’t support my video card.
There is room for these scores to be adjusted: for example, I might play Portal at a friend’s house. And Steam’s score could go negative if they fail to give a refund.
