PC GAMING
THROUGH THE NON-MMO LOOKING GLASS

Criteria

  1. Our criteria for our next non-MMO game choice is based on the following:

  2. online multiplayer co-op – three plus

  3. PC, and hopefully Mac

  4. Cooperative PvE, with some consensual PvP

  5. Minimum of fuss to get on and play on game night (drop in, drop out)

  6. Minimal hassle with different character levels

  7. Ok with instancing to avoid jerks and asshats

  8. Getting burnt out on Eastern developers

  9. Prefer to avoid the shooter zero sum – the chaotic every-man-for-himself, shoot, get killed, shoot, get killed

  10. Relatively recent graphics

  11. Avoid build and defend PvP games

  12. Avoid games that require hardcore play style and time in order to reach end game content, seek out games that support casual play
