    Feb 15th, 2018 at 18:36:30     -    Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor (PC)

    I played for about 45 minutes today. I ended up doing a main mission and a few side things. I'm interested to see where the story goes, and why the main character is tied to this wraith figure. I also think it would be interesting to learn more about the orcs, since I've never really followed Lord of the Rings. Why are they all violent and seemingly evil? This game also makes me really interested to see how the second game is.

    Today I played Shadow of Mordor for about an hour. I'm still very much enjoying the game and I might even look into getting the next one once this is finished. I basically just did side missions for the most part as I wanted to explore the world more and see what else there was to discover. As I said before I really like the nemesis system and I'm interested to see what it's like in the next game. Another potential ethical issue with this game that I thought of is the fact that there are humans who have been enslaved. I could see this as potentially offensive to some people. The orcs are also portrayed as all being the same and having zero redeeming qualities which could potentially be touchy.

    Today I started playing Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. This is a game that I always wanted to play but never got around to purchasing. I played for about two hours today. I found the story to be interesting so far but the strongest aspect of the game is definitely its gameplay. I think the game introduces some cool things that I haven't seen in anything else. For example, there's the whole nemesis system where enemies that defeat you and that you defeat come back. I think it's cool because it gives more feeling to the fights. As far as things that raise ethical questions, the most obvious is the amount of violence. This is the classic issue with videogames of this type.

    Jan 19th, 2018 at 17:14:40     -    Firewatch (PC)

    Today I sat down and finished the rest of Firewatch (about two hours). Overall I really enjoyed the game and thought it was really interesting. However, there were a few things that I wish had been different. For example, the ending of the game left me wanting more. I was kind of disappointed that you don't get to actually see Delilah, and her and Henry just go their separate ways. I feel like even though they only ever talked over the radio they developed a good friendship, and it left me feeling kind of sad that they probably would never talk again. That being said, Firewatch was the type of game to play with your emotions, so maybe that's what the developers were going for. It goes along with the feeling of loneliness during the rest of the game. I also had mixed feelings about how the mystery aspect of the game played out. It kept me intrigued the whole time and honestly I expected the truth to be something different. However, I'm really glad they included the whole mystery aspect because I think it made the game really entertaining. Overall I really enjoyed my experience playing Firewatch.
