Hearthstone has kept my attention longer than any other game has in years. For the first time since 1999’s Quake III Arena, the game in which I have invested the most time throughout the year is not an id Software title. Rather, I have been trapped in the nostalgic layers of this deceptively intricate card game – and I am loving it. However, there is no need to elaborate on the game’s excellent presentation, proper application of a free-to-play mechanic (I haven’t spent a cent on it in over six months), or the fact that it has been a standout game in what Chris has already described as a rather dull year for gaming. This we already knew. What we don’t know is how the game’s recent card expansion Goblins vs Gnomes will change things. Hit the jump for my take on what the expansion has introduced.
