Jump-scare horror games, or "YouTube Bait" as they're often now called, are a dime-a-dozen. Especially ones based in an asylum.

Educating yourself on how to play Super Smash Bros. isn't always easy. Those who know the most about Smash don't always use words that you can find in a dictionary when discussing the game. If you go to the experts for ...
Chris gave a nod to Final Fantasy's Geomancer in honor of Earth Day, which I thought was an original choice. It got me thinking about games that are ever so vaguely related to the celebration. I'm sure you have one in mind. ...

Animaniacs was all trios and duos (and one solo sexy rat thing) playing off each other for comedy and I couldn't help but think of the Buttons and Mindy skits while playing MonsterBag. Mindy would toddle off into harm's way, ...

Anyone who's planning to play The Elder Scrolls Online on consoles likely knows what they're getting into. The series is known for its scale, and MMOs are massive by definition. Those two together make for a game that wo...
The Chinese can take gaming very seriously. So seriously in fact that they have created an entire industry revolved around keeping lonely gamers happy while grinding away in their virtual wastelands. While in places like Amer...
