We Need More War Games Like Valiant Hearts

I know that I am a little late to the party, but I just recently finished Valiant Hearts: The Great War. I loved the game, but what really sticks with me is the game’s depiction of war. It paints a picture of horror and death, and that the people fighting on both sides of the war experience the exact same things. More video games should try to depict war like Valiant Hearts does.

MONG’s Best of 2014 Award Winners – Part Three

2014 was certainly a wild year for gaming.

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both set record sales for a console’s first year on the market, reassuring gamers and “analysts” everywhere that console gaming is here to stay.  Microsoft decided to release a Kinect-less Xbox One bundle after saying it would never happen.  The PlayStation 4 failed to release any major blockbuster first party games during the holiday season, while the Xbox One released a hit new IP in Sunset Overdrive.

We saw the rise and fall of mobile games like Flappy Bird.  Games like Titanfall, Watch Dogs, and Destiny were all finally released only to be ripped apart by gamers with too much hype.  While less hyped games like Wolfenstein: The New Order, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, and The Evil Within managed to blow everyone away.  We were flooded with “HD remakes” of games – some that we have wanted for a long time, and some that were just released a year ago on last generation consoles.

All of that combined to make this years Best of 2014 Awards a really fun one.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review

MORE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE THAN THE ACTUAL GAMEPLAY 

In an industry where most war games are shooters in some fashion, Valiant Hearts: The Great War stands out. Valiant Hearts is a puzzle adventure game, and by far the most interesting take on a war game I have ever experienced.   Continue reading Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review
