Popular shooter games can be either fun or frustrating, but that depends on the differing standards of each subgenre.
Several media properties take inspiration from the classic William Golding novel, but too many fail to capture what made it great.
The military shooter defies expectations and deceives players by having them be complicit in the actions of its main character.
The British crime drama is a show that’s in a league of its own, with rich characterization and storytelling.
Consisting of very different comedic structures, the two shows are great examples of how to keep comedy from being one-note.
It’s hard to sit through the teen drama with a straight face — and lines like ‘Who wants to tryst in the Closet of Love first?’ don’t make the job any easier.
While all games provide some sort of escape, there’s nothing quite like the adventures you can experience from the more easygoing ones that encourage exploration.
While the show may appear to only critique its white characters, a closer look will show that its characters of color receive the same treatment.
Clearly taking inspiration from ‘Black Mirror,’ the show isn’t the most unique, but does its job well. What does this say about making successful television?
Historically subscription-based and expensive to create, these multiplayer online games are being outpaced by other, cheaper and more profitable genres.
Tilt — the process of a player becoming increasingly frustrated with a game — can provide great insight into sunk cost and American entertainment.
While the series appears to have a poor understanding of teenage melodrama, its Netflix counterpart ‘Grand Army’ shows what it’s actually like to be a modern American high school student.
The Netflix film is phenomenal, captivating audiences with nothing more than two characters and a few moments of heavy silence. So why would some people never want to watch it again?
While both series deal with scandals in high society, the recent Netflix Original fails at humanizing its wealthy and pompous cast of characters.
With its reward system, various character skins and community and competitive aspects, ‘addicting’ doesn’t even begin to sum up this game.
