I’ve played a lot of video games – it’s an occupational hazard. I’ve also reviewed a lot of those video games and while most have been great, you occasionally have to review a title that’s (how to put this delicately?) hot garbage. But even though a review title might fall into the “hot garbage” category, there’s normally a level of enjoyment to be found somewhere. I’ve never, for example, felt bored while reviewing a video game, no matter how rubbish it was. But then along came Vampyr, a role-playing game so stuffy and dull in its execution that I really struggled to sit down and sink my teeth into it.
