in a saturated gaming world how do you decide what to play, and why? what is gaming? how do age and the different stages of life influence those choices?
if a game attracts me it has 20 minutes to convince me, otherwise : deleted. an investigation into these thoughts by a group of people, different ages, stages in life, relationship to gaming, different hardware, different backgrounds even different languages.

Tinman Can (iOS)
I guess what attracted me to this was the cute graphics and simple racing idea - but it has that terrible level-chooser that I hate. As you play you try to land jumps perfectly and master your energy by collection 'hovatrons' to be the first to the finish line. Spend 'hovatrons' to pimp out your unicycle-robot with bling and vanity items. In single-player you are always first, because you're playing against the clock....it's a lonely experience. In multiplayer you....erm, don't play at all because I couldn't find anyone playing.....so, cute backgrounds, but deleted.
