Now it truly IS a masterpiece! Like adding cheddar cheese to ice cream....

The only way you could Classify Dear Esther as a Game.

Now, I always viewed a game like Dear Esther, and other games like The Path as not really games as much as an experience. Also, I viewed both those games as an experience I dont much care for.

We have become water logged (with mods)
And the Cage (of pretentious art games) disintegrates.
We shall intermingle (with actual game-play)

Oh dear. I played Dear Esther, and i liked it. It was something a bit different. Not that artsy, but it made me think a bit, and i liked pondering about what really happened. And i was really damn surprised how good some of the places in the game looked, especially since it was an Indie game.

Tho it would be interesting to play such an FPS on Esther`s maps.

It was originally released in 2008 as nothing more than a mod created with Half Life 2's source engine and it looked bloody amazing back then. Robert Briscoe did some amazing things with that engine. Now it looks even better, far more impressive than any triple A title in recent memory.

OT: Gotta say I lol'd hard at the final panel of that comic!

I'd post a smart alec remark but my kb is full of cheeto dust...

The darkside of mods...

Gah. I'd love to try Journey but I have no way of doing so for the time being... :S

1. I LOVE Journey! Great game.

2. You think you have seen the dark side of mods here? Well don't ever look at the mods for Bethesda games, or you may go mental.
Don't get me wrong. Most just try to make the games a bit better, but some.......Not so much.

I mean some of the kids can get on your nerves, but those are the spoiled rich kids mostly. The rest are not all that bad really but then again, that's only an opinion, and not really a fact.

Journey is something amazing. Finished a first playthrough last week, and I'm planning on playing it again soon.

I think I'd play some CS on that. Or maybe PUSH LITTLE KART (that is Payload). Would be a bit interesting.

How nerdy is it that I know that those buckshot ammo pickup models/textures are from Fallout 3?

Oh, and typo in the OP.

I believe it's spelt tweaks...

OT: Brilliant work Alex. Though sadly this might be the only way I'd end up paying out for Dear Esther.

I tried dear esther, had to put heavy metal music to stop me from falling asleep. It's pretty but my god is it boring.

Want to do this now.

the caves are going to be awesome.

I must admit that Dear Esther would make a great Call of Duty/Battlefield: Falklands environment.

That's because its not meant to be a high speed action packed adventure! Its meant to be a relaxing thoughtful pondering experience silly boy :P

I'd play Journey if I'd have a PS3.

Although Thane's space cancer ruined the game much earlier for me.

More like space cystic fibrosis... but that's nitpicking a bit much.

I'll be quite honest...

I would be lying if I said I DIDN'T want to play something like that.

played Esther's Mod, lost my patience. it has that same scripted feeling I had in myst 4, where whenever ANYTHING happened, it had to be narrated. eventually you just know that necklace is going to off when you click something; similarly in Esther's Modwhenever you saw any landmark, there was a comment.
