After years of trying to get into Monster Hunter, I thought I’d finally found my opening. If any game could get me into co-op monster slaying, it would be Final Fantasy Explorers. It was a good try.
A game like this booted up on a dark night when you’re completely alone seems like a sure-fire way to shit your pants.
In my review of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, I had a lot of fun identifying the game's many Nope Moments—the times when a half-open door or a darkened hallway were almost too foreboding. But of course, lots of games have lots of different Nope Moments, and we don't always overcome them.
