In The Mood: Game Genres To Play For All Seasons Of Life

When you decide to bank your career aspirations on videogame journalism, the climb to break through with a full-time, well-paying job is like grinding your way toward beating a seemingly insurmountable boss. You acquire new skills, buff your stats, and slowly learn the ins and outs of your arch-nemesis. It may take ages and dozens of restarts, but you’ll eventually get there if you persevere…maybe, especially if the boss in question is from the Souls series. The same kind of…

Cream of the Crop: 2016

A new year, a new website, and a new Cream of the Crop? Man, I’m redefining what it means to make New Year’s resolutions by spoiling you all silly with this overload of “newness.” Before we delve into what 2016 holds for video games though, I look back at the previous year and feel it was short as a whole, but when I separate particular parts of it, it seems much longer. Evolve, Dying Light, and The Order: 1886 came…

Cream of the Crop: 2015

2015? Already? Man, is it just me or does each year seem shorter as time passes? Eh, that must be a thing that happens as you become older. Anyway, I’m on time for my annual list of most anticipated games unlike last year, and as for how my 2014 picks turned out, nearly half of them were either delayed until this year or turned out to be less amazing than I imagined they’d be. However, there were still some solid…

The 10 Greatest “Godzillas” in Video Games

You know, it’s intriguing how giant monsters have always enthralled and captivated mankind’s imagination. Whether it be Smaug the Terrible, King Kong, the Kraken, or Kaiju from Pacific Rim, you would think that iconic beasts like these would be disliked and feared for what they’re capable of doing, but they’re usually among the most memorable and popular characters in the movies/books they belong to. Simply put, we think they’re awesome – in the real sense of the word – because…

Cream of the Crop: 2014

What’s that? It’s too late to do a 2014 top 10 games list? Well…well, you’re certainly right. It is ridiculous to be doing this at the onset of March. But – being the stubborn individual I am – I’m taking time out of my woefully short spring break to put this together; it’s my 2014 “cream of the crop” list, as I like to call it, and contains the games I’m looking forward to the most this year. So, where…

My Top 10 Nostalgic Game Franchises

“Nostalgia trips,” as I like to call them, are periods of time when I have an unexpected, sudden passion for remembering and immersing myself in something I adored in years past. For example, Lego’s “Bionicle” toy line was something I was a part of from its inception to its conclusion. I still reminisce on all the books, toys, comics, and communities I was a part of for so long…I’ll never forget Bionicle. Another more relevant and current example involves Spyro…
