About Barry Herbers

I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to).

Here’s some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff:

The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price

A Game’s Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic

The Witcher 3’s Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players

I’m looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list.

I’m also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it’s that sort of stuff.
