RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
Prince of Persia. Before I played the game I thought of it as a kids game, then I perchased it and my mind changed quickly. It has and awesome battle system. Fluid and I mean fluid combat animations and its fun. The story telling in this game is done really good. It is told in a third person perspective and brings a certain style to it that sucks you in and holds on. Although it is on the childish side on looks and appearence. The story is actually mature and the combat and jokes are mature too. So no matter what your age is youll enjoy it. Its not to easy and its not too hard. THe puzzles in the game range from way to easy to way to hard. It used all the princes abilities to solve them all towards the end. The gameplay is great fun. The prince can flip, spin, twirl, run up walls, run across walls, climb, jump, stab, you name it this guy can do it. And not only does he perform amazing acrobats he looks good doing it. The battle system is awesome. Its done in real time and you can do all the acrobats during combat to perform awesome fatal attacks. You feel like a baddass when you slay your enemy on this game.
