Shooting the Shit My Problem With the "Gameplay Only" Mentality Reply To: My Problem With the "Gameplay Only" Mentality

We can’t judge things only on what we remember, because story and cutscenes have a better chance of being stored in your memory than moment-to-moment gameplay. Tetris on the GameBoy could have consumed your life for 6 straight months with it’s masterful design, but you don’t remember the actual play of it as well as even a crappy scene in a crappy NBC television show. It’s just how the brain works. It doesn’t mean gameplay isn’t as important.

That said, the moment I remember most fondly about my favorite game is Resident Evil 4’s opening village encounter. So good.
