The trouble with the market.

Remember in the first Matrix movie when Neo and Morpheus are discussing the Matrix world? Morpheus says something to the effect of: you know something is wrong with the world, you've felt it for years, it's in the back o...

Why I ‚ô• Destructoid

Like most of you here, I'm pretty obessed with gaming. It's something that I think a lot about. I do reviews, I think about what companies could do to fix their woes, listen to podcasts about gaming, and among my friends...

Why I love fighting games

I've heard gamers tell me they don't like fighting games. And I look at them with this face that says "They still make you?". (I say in jest, even the most hardcore among us have genre's games that we have a hard time ap...

The trouble with sequels...

As much as we all love to see a new IP, there's something reassuring about picking up a sequel to one of your favorite games. There's a lot less mystery, and you generally have a pretty good idea what to expect. After al...

Video Games: stuff that's always annoyed me

They say little things bother little people. I don't know that I agree with that, but I do think there's more than a few things that bother me in gaming. Maybe I've just let things fester more than they should have, but ...

How long does a game need to be? #lengthgate

With all the talk about The Order 1886 being a short game, I couldn't help but want to chime in on my philosophy on how long a game should be. Now this isn't the same as my blog on what makes a game complete. Because I f...

If I could make my own console

Us console gamers don't exactly have the luxury to make our systems the way we want. Sure, you can upgrade the hard drive, or add some accessories, maybe even change out a faceplate, but that's about it when it comes to ...

Opinion: Are games art?

If you went and asked the average gamer if they considered games "art" I think they would overwhelmingly say yes. They would point out examples like Journey, Limbo and Shadow of the Colossus and say that is the proof. If...

I miss Sega...

While I've given quite a bit of love to Nintendo, and some towards Microsoft and Sony, I feel like there's another company that I haven't quite given some love to, and that's Sega. While they still exist in today's marke...

Playstation, and my A/V room

Ever since I've got my hands on my first amplifier back in 2000, I've been a bit of an A/V junkie. There is something cool about having a media center in my living room that makes everyone want to game at my house. Fact ...

What is Nintendo planning?!?

Nintendo's been acting kinda funny lately. No, not their normal shenanigans like prentending the internet doesn't exist, and producing low quantities of high demand items. This is a lot more subtle, something you have to...

Complete games

It's the Christmas season, and with all the gift giving a lot of people are getting shiny new consoles. There really is nothing quite like getting a new console on Christmas day, the feel of opening up the box, that new ...

Why I like the Xbox brand

Last month I wrote a blog on my first impressions of the Xbox One I had just purchased. I went over the positives and negatives, and just how I felt about the system in general. I was more than a little disapointed&...

So I bought an Xbox One...

So as you all know Microsoft temporarily cut the cost of the Xbox One down from $399 to $349 and bundled in a couple of Assassins Creed games. But better yet, black Friday sales pushed the console down to $329 and (depen...

Is this the last console generation?

Before I begin, I know I haven't been around much the last few days or so, vacation means less time in front of a PC and more time doing whatever. But I'll be back to my chatty opinionated self next week. In the mean tim...

What's the deal with racing games?

I've tried tons of racing games over the years, everything from Forza to Need for Speed, and I have to say that a lot of them just fail to appeal to me as a gamer. I want to talk about my issues with them and what can be...

PS1: A retrospective

If you follow me on Dtoid you probably know I'm not the biggest supporter of Sony, I'm more of a Nintendo guy. It's not that I consider the Playstations bad systems, it's more that they come from a different place, Sony ...

Tons of Wii games worth buying

Let me start off by saying I think the Wii is a terribly misunderstood console. When comparing it to the PS3 and 360 it's hard not to bulk a bit when they are suppossed to be the same generation. Fact is, the Wii is...

My Favorite System of All Time

While I’ve went into detail about my favorite game, I’ve never touched on my favorite console. After years of gaming, I must say that the Gamecube is my favorite and I’d like to give a history of how th...

My Favorite game of all time

Every so often I get asked what my favorite game of all time is, and for a long time I didn't really have an answer. It's kind of like a favorite song, it just changes so often that it's hard to nail down one. But I thou...

What I want from Sonic the Hedgehog

Keep calm and play the 3DS.

As I'm sure that most of you are aware last week Nintendo announced their plans to release a new model of the 3DS aptly called the "new" 3DS. The new 3DS features a slew of improvements basically fixing every issue the curren...

Why I am not a PC gamer.

In a blog that is sure to be controversial I have decided to talk about why I am not a PC gamer. Now I don't write this to rekindle an age old argument, but to really settle once and for all my stance on why I prefer console ...

With this generation drawing to a close I thought it was time that I went though and discussed the games that had the biggest impact on my. These are games that I felt a special connection with, the games that in my mind were...

Wii U and 3DS: what's missing?

It's no secret around Destructoid that I'm a Nintendo fan. Their games and consoles just resonate with me. I like their outlook on gaming, and support them everywhere I can. But at the same time they aren't perfect, and if I ...

A short history of backwards compatibility

I'm a huge fan of backwards compatibility. Frankly, I think everyone should be, what's not cool about being able to play your old games on a new system? Better yet if you've never owned the old system you suddenly have a siza...

More games in need of a sequel.

Last month I wrote a blog on games that I though deserved sequels. As promised Iím following up with a sequel of my own, these are more of the games that I would like to see a modern version of. As I said before these are my ...

How accessible do games need to be?

Okay I think we've all be there. You'll be playing a game and it won't stop trying to teach you how to play. You've been playing a series of a game for the past 5 years but they can't help but to give you unskippable cut-scen...
