Video game writer Jeffrey Yohalem
defends Far Cry 3
, his most recent work.
Released earlier this month, hotly anticipated first person shooter (FPS) Far Cry 3
has been met with critical acclaim
- oftentimes "not because of the story, and perhaps even despite it.
Yoshalem first defended his work by speaking with Sopie Prell
at The Penny Arcade Report
saying, "what makes me sad is that people don’t engage with playing the riddle, trying to solve the riddle. It’s like a scavenger hunt where people aren’t collecting the first clue."
Though he admires the effort, Rock, Paper, Shotgun's John Walker
is unconvinced: "...rather than making us aware of the horrors of the starving Irish when he says they should eat their babies, instead it too often felt like he was publishing baby recipe books to the very hungry."
