Spelunky is a fascinating, deep game. Though I've played little of it, I appreciate from afar; I've heard several game designers espouse love for its brilliant mix of simple approaches to complex situations, and over the years I think the conversation on it has subsided, but never really gone away. A new hour-long documentary from Noclip is as extensive a look at the game as we're likely to get. the film talks to the game's core designers, ...

Reader Discussion – What's Your Favorite Gaming Collectible?

Collectibles can make an otherwise barren world feel alive. They can work as secrets that give games that lived-in feeling, or as ways to incrementally upgrade your character. But sometimes, they can be boring chores that are only there to give you something to do. But what games nail it? I'm playing a lot of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and most of its collectibles are wonderful. The shrines (and there are a lot of shrines) offe...

I can't deny, t...
