Entering into the busiest video game season of the year, we didn’t
exactly need Apple Arcade, nor did we really want it, given
Apple’s mediocre stewardship of video games for the past decade.
What a shock, then, that Apple Arcade is one of the best gaming
launches we can remember, and that we can recommend it without
making any apologies or exceptions for the stuff no one likes
about mobile games. This thing is great. […]
There are, simply, none of the manipulative systems that have
contaminated nearly all of mobile gaming. Just imagine playing a
puzzle game and not having to wait an hour for a timer to tick
down before you can play the next level. Imagine playing a
strategy game where you aren’t offered the chance to pay more to
speed up the suspiciously slow building times. Imagine not being
screwed with while you play mobile games. What a concept!
Sometimes a headline says it all.
