Reaching For The Top Of The Video Game World

Illustration for article titled Reaching For The Top Of The Video Game World

In today's Speak-Up on Kotaku, commenter SecretMobilin professes a strong desire for games that allow us to ascend the highest heights. Would you climb a video game mountain just because it was there?


I want a video game based on this picture.

Or really, any game based on climbing mountains that has a lot of snow and pretty scenery will do.


Why is it so hard to make games that go vertical? I want an open-world game that goes UP rather than OUT.

About Speak-Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have that little forum on Kotaku called Speak-Up. That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Every weekday we'll pull one of the best Speak-Up posts we can find and highlight it here.
