We’re talking about that one guy from that one thing at the following link.

I seem to be on a roll lately with games that provide choices. I’m currently playing a game that plays entirely on the choices you make. However, in this episode I talk about Quantum Break. Spoiler – it isn’t that great. It’s also not that bad either. Look, I like Remedy, the makers of Quantum Break. Max Payne and Max Payne 2 means I’ll always come back to see what they have on offer. Alan Wake wasn’t great either but it also wasn’t bad. They tackle the old familiar “your choices matter” mechanic and they somewhat succeed with it by not making it matter too much. While other games that try this want to make it seem like you’ll have an direct change in how the game is played or how the story ends, Quantum Break doesn’t do that. It’s the smaller ripples. So while you make that choice and you see it realized in their live-action segment of their “TV show”, you easily understand that what you just did won’t make a single difference on how the game will end.

Then again, with the story as lacking as it is, you might not care either way.
