Edge: why games are rubbish

There’s a good feature in this month’s Edge where four comedy writers who also play game  talk about how games are often rubbish.

Among other things they point out the woeful voice acting – with Max Payne getting a deserved verbal kicking – and the way some games manage to irritate you so much that you throw them in a corner and never play them again. Worth reading, if you can find a copy (more of that later: I’m finding it increasingly difficult to find magazines, and not just in supermarkets either).
