Love it or loathe it, the 7th Generation of gaming has certainly been a memorable one. When I look back 20 years from now, I think I will remember this, fondly, as the generation that finally got me into online multiplayer. Sure, I played my fair share of multiplayer games back in college -- Quake III: Arena, Unreal Tournament, Counter-Strike (back when it was just a mod), etc. -- but it wasn't until I got involved with Destructoid's Friday Night Fights Xbox 360 crew that I really got into it, and I haven't looked back since.

What about the rest of you? What will you remember most as you enter the 8th Generation and beyond? On-disc DLC or the rise of indie? Plastic instruments and waggling, or the generation that brought us some of the most complex and "hardcore" games in a decade?

Achievements?!

Dumb Idiot Ideas: The Difficult Kinect Challenge

This week, we filmed a wonderful short piece in which Bill and I discussed the lack of video games that let us play as actual animals. Unfortunately, Bill's microphone cut out mid-discussion, and the camera's face-tracking started focusing on an animated GIF of some dogs having sex I had up on my monitor behind me. So, here's what we did instead. more
