Another article from Ars' game week that I enjoyed:
Ars Technica’s favorite video games from our first 10 years, 1998-2008
Our gaming fandom, as viewed through the prism of ancient reviews, bustling forums.
by Sam Machkovech - Aug 20, 2019 8:30am BRT

Welcome to Ars Gaming Week 2019! As a staff full of gamers and game-lovers, we'll be serving up extra reviews, guides, interviews, and other stories all about gaming from August 19 to August 23.

A long time ago on an Ars far, far away, video game coverage operated quite differently. In our first ten years of existence, games coverage often blended into a format that revolved around our emphasis on busy, passionate forum posts. Ars authors' biggest posts could drive commentary, but more often than not, the most bustling threads were the ones started by readers themselves.
2003 was such a good year for gaming...

Assassin's Creed Odyssey mercenary system has taken a little inspiration from Shadow of Mordor's nemesis system, but yeah, it's puzzling why more games haven't included something similar.
