      I’ve wanted to play multiple games for the first time for a myriad of reasons, but the one I seem to keep coming back to is Halo 3.

    Spinoff games are a broad category. They can range from placing revered franchises in entirely new genres, retain similar gameplay elements but provide novel twists, or be a completely different game featuring recognizable characters.

    TSG Asks: Do you prefer branching or linear stories?

    One of the most interesting parts about video games is the potential to account for player choice in the narrative. This “choose your own” style of adventure is something video games have aspired to for a long time.

    TSG Asks: What is your favorite console?

    The console is a special thing to gamers. It’s a gateway to other worlds, a tool for connecting to an immersive experience. The loyalty formed through this connection is one of the reasons people can feel so competitive about whether or not their chosen console is the best.

    TSG Asks: Who is your favorite developer right now?

    I’m going to give my pick to Rockstar, with some caveats. They are my favorite studio (technically group of studios) not because they are known for the best of business practices or the most affable relationship with their consumers, the press, or each other.
