Games have the power to impact us emotionally. It’s high time that more of them do. There’s something to be learned by these few examples...
Here’s a short editorial, because like most modern games, I can’t be bothered to put a whole lot of thought into moving your soul with what I offer to you, the consumer.
Games have the ability to move us emotionally, and it’s so rare that they actually do.
This frustrates me incredibly.
C’mon game industry. It’s time to grow up.

Beatenvideogames.net is a video game review site dedicated to reviewing games only after we've beaten them.
Too often, we've read reviews posted in the mainstream video game media that focus on the first couple hours of gameplay. That means games are judged and scored by their first impression, not by the product as a whole.
And let's face it, much of the video game media is bought and paid for by the publishers whose games they "impartially" review.
The reviewers at this site take issue with that philosophy and have instead decided not to post a review (except under special circumstances) unless the game has been completed. And we're not making any money off it.
