What Do You Think About Args? Nov. 1st, 2012 @ 10:57 PM Reply

Basically, an ARG, or Alternate Reality Game, is a story-based game that integrates traditional media (books, websites, movies, etc.) into the playing experience. For example, you might have to solve a riddle in a real life location, but the answer to it may be hidden in a cryptic clue on a website.

What are your thoughts about these types of games? Have you ever played one? I have been interested in trying one of these games out, but I haven't had the time or resources (or people skills, real world or online) to participate.

Here's a link to a Wikipedia article, in case you want to learn more:

Nothing short of seven flavors of awesome sauce... with some extra-violence glaze on the side!

SCP is the ultimate ARG, and the only one I feverishly follow. Not counting Marble Hornets as an ARG because its mostly limited to the YouTube series.

I used to like SCP too. But later they turned less interesting somehow. I also participated in The Lost Ring, fucking awesome.

Fez did that. There was a code you had to scan with your smartphone so progress. I dont have a smartphone. I got stuck.

Buying a smartphone becomes part of the game at that point, it's a dynamic feature.
