Virginia is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but if you haven't had the chance to try the demo yet, maybe it would be wise to take a quick look at some of the following videos. Developer Variable State designed a fully narrative experience in which gameplay mechanics are extremely limited. The emphasis is clearly on story and atmosphere, with a movie approach to the way the story is delivered. You go from one scene to another with no transition, making it difficult to understand what is going on at first, and the point of all this is to let the player connect all the dots together. The absence of dialogues is also justified by the desire to deliver a story differently than in most games. Being focused on narration only - even though there are some minor interactions with the world -, it does not take long to complete, about 2 hours, but it's still a journey worth taking if you like thrillers.
Note: Strangely enough, the developers say the game is best played at 30 fps, which would be fine if the frame-rate felt smooth at 30 on PC. You can of course choose to lock the frame-rate at 60, which makes it better overall, but it's still not perfectly smooth. We haven't seen the game on consoles, so we don't know if the 30 fps cap works better.
I definitely don't fault people who can't afford to comply. And the situation sucks for them. That doesn't really draw any final conclusions about GDPR one way or the other. (1 Hour ago)

@nostradamus: People in that situation are just shutting down (like SteamSpy). But even if the core business isn't the handling of that data, we're talking about how user data generated by games (1 Hour ago)

well, if their core buisness is handling of that information, then what to do? I do recon the directives are a bit insane on the IT side of things (no DB on biodata, deletion of user (1 Hour ago)
Cool. I'll keep calling people who lose their jobs because of the costs associated with compliance collateral damage. (1 Hour ago)
