Well, I'm back from my relative's house, so you can probably expect my countdown to be done in around 2 days or less. (Forgot to save the stuff I already had on the countdown onto a word file... GAH)

Edit: Whoopsie on my previous post. I meant next week, not Tomorrow.

Great points on this discussion, And I agree with each and every one of them. (Especially Moon Base Alpha. Lots of unintentional fun to be had there. xD) Though, I feel I should contribute more to this conversation, so...

Kitty's Top 10 things she likes in Video Games!

10: Replayability (Proof that Kitty can't spell)

Collect ALL the unlockables?
The thing that keeps a game fun is the ammount of playability you can get out of it. Most games that do this very well are either Sandbox or Online Multiplayer games, mainly because of the many different outcomes that you can encounter from it.

9: Games made funny by players

aeiou
Oh god this. This is the best thing ever.
Also, you may have heard of a certain player in World of Warcraft famous for his battle quote....

8: Awesome Music

Admit it, you were excited for this song, weren't you?
Take a look at games such as Portal, Metal Gear Solid and Halo, and you'll know what I mean.

7: Games that concentrate more on Aesthetics than Graphics.

And to think you guys used to work for Black Mesa...
You know what makes games like Team Fortress 2, Minecraft and Katamari Damacy way more popular than High res/definition/insert good graphicyness here games like Medal of Honor, Brink and Beast Rider? Aesthetics. Or, in layman's terms, the style the game uses. If you look at the first 3 I mentioned, they all use a distinct style which makes them unique from all the other games. (Also, Brink is just a ripoff of TF2. Just sayin'.)

6: User Generated Content

Oh look it's you two.
The reason why I'm putting this one down a notch or two is because of the quality required for the content to work. Sure, There are some GREAT Minecraft Maps out there, and sure there's a load of Little Big Planet and Spore adventures to play, but there's also the crappy made in 10 minutes games you have to avoid. Still worth mentioning, though.

5: Large Landscapes

Plenty of arm room for killing guys!
I like games that have loads of places to explore, without you having to be restricted by invisible barriers. Games like Assassin's Creed do this well, as the levels are BIG! (Maybe too big...)

4: Humor

NOPE NOTHING STRANGE HERE
I love games that include great humor. Not the cheesy, face-palming way, I mean they are acually pretty funny.
A great example is Portal, It doesn't try to be funny all the time, but it's still a pretty humorous game.
Another mentionable game is the Monkey Island seires. The game is basically centered around being hilarious.
Speaking of humor...

3. Breaking the 4th Wall

Guybrush, asking the game producers for help is CHEATING!
I think it's a cute idea for the game to occasionally point out that it is a game every so often. Whenever it's something subtle, such as the character doing some animation like tapping their foot waiting for you to continue the game, or something dramatic, like acually forcing the player to do something such as performing resents on their console to continue the game. Those of you who are fans of Metal Gear Solid should have some good examples of great 4th wall breaks.

2. Great Storylines

IT CAN'T BE TRUE.
There are a lot of games that know how to tell stories right. Take the Half Life sires and Portal for example. The main characters don't even have to speak and the storylines are still awesome!
Now if only Valve didn't stall games so much.

1. Great Characters

Because EVERYONE wants a psycotic rabbit as a sidekick.
As for great storylines, there's a lot of great characters in the world of video games. Good character designs and bad character designs are usually what separates good games from bad games. (That's why Metroid: Other M sucked, honhonhon)

And that's it. Thanks for reading!

You shouldn't have put Online Multiplayer on your list. Not all games need Multiplayer, let alone Online, so why should it be important? Most of the games that have it will be designed for multiplayer. Single Player games aren't bad.

Also, Other M sucked because it had bad voice acting, made lots of plot holes, didn't play at all like other Metroid games and, in my opinion, it was too easy.

Not every game needs humor as well. That's just our own opinions....

@Kitty

1: Aesthetics over Graphics: I can't BELIEVE I forgot this on my list. If I'd put that on, I'd say it'd be somewhere between #5 and #3.

2: Ever heard of Final Combat? Now THAT'S a TF2 ripoff.

In response to your asking for game recommendations, definitely try out Red Faction: Guerrilla. It has a very open world and massive opportunities for destroying things. Also don't be fooled by the title, playing monster trucks with enemy bases is always much more practical than actually trying to sneak in there.

Also, if you're looking for ridiculousness, try Vanquish. I have a feeling the makers were consciously making it more over-the-top than logical. It's some pretty cool and fast paced fun.

No new episode today.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but stay tuned, there will be one next Sunday.

EDIT: Oh, and @Jat, thanks for the recommendations. I will be on the lookout for them.

Ohai der, da Interwebz. How u guiz doin nowadayz? Terwynd's Topics is rebooting with an all-new season 2 entry in one week on the topic of zombies, and how to do them right.

So stay tuned on Sunday, March 17th for the hilariously rushed posts of unresearched bantering and hissy fits you all know and love from your least favorite member of the *** ***hats Clu-

Wait, wait hold on just a split second... What? Who the hell even wrote this script, and how did it get to this post in the first place?!

Spoiler:
 

Graaagh. Anyways, expect the launch episode next Sunday, and make sure to give me suggestions on what to write about. The whole show was based on that principle back in it's heyday, and will continue to rely on it in Terwynd's Topics Season 2. My writing skills have definitely improved, what with the rise of the Sentain novel I've been writing, so expect to see better quality writing from a more matured and sound-minded Terwynd, and more accurate research on topics when needed as well as longer paragraphs and better set up to humor, as well as better humor overall.

TL;DR? Quality standard is being raised by 200%

As a side note, expect to have a couple other writers on board this ship as well, DRaGO and Delta have expressed interest in writing a couple topics for themselves, to which I will gladly welcome on weeks when I need more time to write an episode.

Thank you all, and have a wonderful day.

Excellent.

You should definitely use the history of Spore as a topic.

Ah yes, that little story/analogy you wrote. I think that would be good for a creative works column.

Oh, yeah. I still need to refine that.

For those who don't know, I made a cool extended metaphor about the history of spore in the chatbox and now I have to make it into real literature instead of a bunch of improvisation

You'll do fine. If you could improvise something like that, then you can certainly refine it well.

I am ashamed to say that I have never played a zombie video game

Wait, I take that back. I am proud to be able to say that.

I didn't read that whole article, though, since I know practically nothing about the subject.

One thing I would advise in the area of syntax is that some of your sentences are a bit long and meandering; jokes are okay, but maybe don't always try to drag them out so long in a single sentence, and just don't drag sentences out in general. It just made it kind of awkward to read.

After re-reading the article, I noticed what you were talking about really bad during the second paragraph, and more specifically the last sentence on that paragraph. Thanks for pointing that out, I'll fix that part right away. sweat
