Braulio’s Top 100 Games of All Time

Life is getting real now that I’m about to graduate from my University with a B.A. in Television, Film, and Media so I need to prioritize my life goals and take a bit of time off from Cynosure Gaming. I’ve spent countless hours since the early days of June 2015 and they continued until now. I have been lucky enough to find and gather easily the best people on the internet to take care of my baby while my time is consumed with job applications that could eventually lead to my career. Thank you to those who have taken the time to read anything we’ve posted. Now starts a new era under the leadership of Camron, good luck buddy and here are my top 100 games of all time!

Of Loyalty and the Human Condition – An Analysis of The Last of Us

Loyalty. A quality every one of us requires in any relationship, loyalty permeates every facet of our culture. From religion, to culturally-specific customs, to basic friendship, we assume–and even expect–each acting member of society to remain loyal to something. Everything.

In games, I believe loyalty is brushed under the rug in lieu of other characterizations such as resourcefulness in combat. This is obviously determined by genre of game, but it still seems to be something not as in-your-face as other qualities.

That in mind, one game shines above the others for me in terms of loyalty. Some may say I am giving into the hype and am biased, others may say it’s overrated. Say what you will, but The Last of Us exemplifies beautiful narrative amidst an over-saturated market of zombie games and more than that, it is a hauntingly wonderful insight into the human condition. I will be exploring how the game tackles different aspects of this, including how it all loops back to loyalty.
