  1. Interesting to hear almost half of this episode used for discussing the controversy surrounding Year Walk.
    Let’s get one thing straight: I really liked Year Walk and I still think you guys are way too hard on it. No hints were needed for a nitwit like myself to complete it and I only had to write down something once, and I’m pretty sure I could have remembered that as well if I’d put my mind to it. Also, and this bothers me a little bit, the game isn’t “huge” nor requires a lot of “backtracking”, nor is it a bad thing that the entire environment is “open” from the start. Year Walk is basically a pretty small game, taking place in limited surroundings, that slowly reveal their secrets. This is not Myst. You don’t have to co-op or keep entire notebooks to solve things, like you implied. By the way, I realize that “not-being-like-Myst” might be a relief for some but off-putting for others. Hey, I not only have a wife but two toddlers as well, so I’m not looking for time-consuming adventures while there are other priorities. But Year Walk is not like that. Actually, comparing it to a Stanley Kubrik movie makes more sense: it’s visceral, it’s unique, and either you get it or you don’t.
    I got it. I guess Chris didn’t. But that won’t make me think any less of him.
