Best of Nintendo: 20th Century Masters

A while ago, I bought a 20th Century Masters collection of The Guess Who, one of the greatest rock bands in history, and was dissappointed when I found that Baba O'Riley was poignantly absent; it is one of their gre...

 


Dota-Clone Name Suggestion

Forewarning: this article contains some sarcasm and cynicism about a genre that is very popular and that I have enjoyed. It also has opinions which are my own and not necessarily yours. The beauty of it is that we can exchang...

I know why I play games. It is not just "because they're fun"; that's a crummy answer that doesn't really say anything. I play video games because all of my friends lived miles away from me, some even in other cities. What else can a poor boy do?

I grew up on Nintendo consoles, having everything from the NES to the Gamecube at some point in my life. Now, I am a PC gamer with a reasonable Steam library, a love of GOG and indie games, and a mechanical keyboard by eMachines from a time before laptops were everywhere.



The games I like generally have some immediacy to them - games that feel good to play or offer something that I determine to be satisfying.

Favorite games in no order: Shadow of the Colossus, Mark of the Ninja, Dishonored, Star Fox 64, UT 2k4, F.E.A.R.
I have many other games that I love to death, but these stand tall in my mind.

Genres I could never understand or get into are turn-based RPGs, most MMORPGs, and Sports games.
