Sessler's Soapbox: Gateway Gaming


Posted October 22, 2008 - By Patrick Roche-Sowa

With the emergence of the casual gamer and games targeted specifically at that demographic, there are a lot of new people paying attention to the gaming industry. We're always happy to welcome new-comers into our little coven of nerd, but sometimes they have a bit of trouble making the leap into more hardcore, traditional games.

Well in this week's Sessler's Soapbox, the Sess is going to give you a double dose of his sage wisdom. First, a small cautionary tale about gaming and spinal health. But the real topic this week is how Fable II might be the perfect game to help usher your little brother or mother or girlfriend into the world of hardcore gaming. Much like Wii games before it, Fable II has set the entry barrier low enough that almost anyone who can hold a controller can experience the incredible story and experience of the game. Not only that, but the combat, writing, and progression are still refined enough to please the most hardcore of gamers. Have we reached common ground? Is this a game that your girlfriend will WANT to watch you play? Check out the video and see if you agree with the Sess.
