5. Hatoful Boyfriend Review
HATOFUL BOYFRIEND MADE ME BUY INTO ITS PIGEON-DRIVEN WORLD
Hatoful Boyfriend makes fun of the dating simulator genre by turning it on its head, making it weird and outrageous. The witty dialogue and absolutely bonkers scenarios are genuinely fun to discover, and the handful of different storylines make repeated playthroughs worthwhile. It's not groundbreaking material, but it's laughable — in a good, entertaining way.
6. Sims 4 Review
THE SIMS 4 IS CONTENT TO GIVE YOU JUST ENOUGH, AND NOT A BIT MORE
So much of the effort that went into The Sims 4 — and don't misunderstand, there was a lot of effort — went into improving the tools and mechanics of the game. In that regard, Maxis succeeded; there's no doubt about that. The game-level stuff, the creation and control, is top-notch. But ultimately, it feels like a well-made box, only partially filled and primed for expansion.
It's not that The Sims 4 doesn't give you enough to do — it's that it gives you just enough to do, and not a single ounce more. In one in-game lifetime, I felt like I'd seen everything there was to offer, killing any desire I had to start over. Even in virtual worlds, variety is the spice of life. The Sims 4, for all its polish and cleverness, simply isn't very spicy.
