Top 10 Free PC Games 2011


7. Don't Take It Personally Babe, It Just Ain't Your Story

I have been a fan of visual novels ever since I played 999: 9 hours, 9 persons, 9 doors, a Nintendo commercial game. Christine Love, first created magic with her critically acclaimed game, "Digital:A Love Story" and continues it with DTIPB. Her writing weaves an engrossing drama with, surprises and twists, natural and believable dialogue sequences and like her name, has an element of love. 
DTIPB is an interactive visual novel, all about love, sex, trust, guilt, internet, sexuality and privacy. You are John Rook, a high school teacher, handling a class of socially networked hooked students in the year 2047. At school, the students and teachers are equipped with a tablet, and the students use AmieConnect on this tablet. This is very similar to Facebook, and is used to interact with their other classmates, to post their status on their profile and wall; make gossip, send private messages, argue with each other and even to flirt.
This very interactive novel becomes really interesting when you, as John Rook, have access to all the messages that students post, including their public and private conversations which the students are not supposed to know about; thereby, breaking every moral of privacy. As the story progresses there are elements of tension and drama created; not only do you get to know about the good, the bad and the ugly sides of these teenagers, but also the problems they face in their personal life and how to help them if needed. The game has 3 different endings, depending on the choices you make, thanks to the smart and creatively told piece of narration.
