The overall feel of Reputation is dark: angry songs, depressing songs, sad songs.
The most lighthearted track is probably “New Years Day” which is more melancholy.
In fact, many romance games are Visual Novels, which is a much different game style.
(See for example, the difference between the Ace Attorney series, which is very close to a Visual Novel style of gameplay, and the DOA Xtreme series, which is the closest thing to a true Dating Sim with mass-market appeal in the US.) If the game plays out like a Choose Your Own Adventure, that's a Visual Novel.
I have to believe that this kind of backlash has every single game developer suddenly rethinking strategy in all of their current and future games.
Just this same month, my favorite game had its own backlash against RNG type products in their store, and this was just for pure cosmetic stuff, not “play to win”.
I have been really tempted to write about the steep decline happening in politics, not just in America, but everywhere these days, but there is way too much material to go through, and most of it is from Russian hackers. Instead, since we are nearing the end of 2017, I thought about writing a year in review piece, and since I’m leaving politics out, I have to limit myself to arts and media so far in 2017.

Yes, there is still some great TV like , aren’t as good as they used to be.
Part 3: If you are not a “franchise” film, no one will watch you Part of the problem with the golden age of TV is that we were mostly satisfied with binging series instead of going to movies.
Like Japan, who have produced two of my favorite music videos of the year, namely this one and this one. For the last 20 years or so, we have been living in a golden age of TV.
For those who don’t remember TV before , but most of the TV before 1997 is crap by today’s standards. Abrams, Ronald Moore, and Bryan Fuller, but others were doing some great work, too.
That is what EA attempted to pull off with , and the gaming community went ballistic.
