Nick Valdez's personal picks for best games of 2017

I took so, so many Ls this year. I mean, the world did overall but 2017 was particularly unkind to me in a bunch of ways. There's no need to unpack all that stuff right at the intro, but you should know going in that the choices I've made h...

A 2017 GOTY list that doesn't include PUBG

Listen, I don't have anything against PUBG, other than maybe the name is too long and obnoxious and the abbreviation is equally frustrating to say, I just don't....care about it. I don't even own the game or have any desire to. I've played ...

Marcel's Dtoid 2017 Yearbook of Games

2017 may collectively become known as the simultaneous best and worst year of the past decade. While the lineup of games throughout the year hasn't been this strong since 1997, the real world has also been a shit show. There were dozens of ...

A send-off for The World Ends With You's tenth anniversary

I replayed The World Ends With You for the third time this year. In part because I got a new phone and lost my save file as a result, and in part to celebrate its tenth anniversary. Long story short, I managed to lock myself out of that new...

What is your 2018 gaming resolution?

So... 2017 huh? Goddamn, have the last 12 months felt like they lasted six years to anyone else? So much has happened in 2017, too much to bother talking about here, but one of the good things to come out of it for me is I kept my gaming re...

Take a deep breath. If you're reading this, congratulations. The holidays have come and gone, and we're one step closer to leaving 2017 in the dust. It hasn't been an easy year, but here we are: alive, tougher, and desperate for some rest. ...

Chris Carter's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

Crafting a personal Game of the Year list is one of my favorite holiday traditions. It's my chance to get weird and profess my love for several projects that might not be all that popular, and give people a window into how I spend my time. ...

Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2017

This is probably the second time in two years that I can say that it’s been a pretty good year for games and anime, if not necessarily a great year for everything else. That might be true in the broader sense, but despite this more ...

Let's share our favorite Christmas gaming memories

Growing up, before I got a job that gave me enough money to buy just about any game I wanted, Christmas was one of the two or three days a year I could look forward to getting a new game. My birthdays were pretty dependable on providing me ...

What is the worst game you've ever played?

Since starting this weekly feature back in January, I’ve tried to keep things positive. There is so much negativity throughout gaming that the last thing we need is another article on a somewhat popular website throwing shade and tras...

What's the last game that scared you silly?

I used to be a pretty big scaredy cat when it came to games (not so much with films, though – the interactive side to games really had the potential to freak me out). After toughing it out for a few weeks with REmake earlier on i...

No DLC has been better than Burial at Sea: Episode 2

The whole Loot Box debacle that has rolled out of the past several weeks has been interesting to watch. It's wonderful to see gamers and game journalist coming together to fight the common enemy of publishers attempting to nickel-and-dime u...

What's wrong with the run animation in Mega Man 11?

Running walking animations are easy to take for granted. When they do their job right, they look too natural to ever grab your attention while still adding energy and personality to the character. While it may look primitive now, the origin...

Christmas games that aren't Christmas games

Quite shamefully, I only saw Die Hard for the first time two years ago, in December and in a packed movie theatre. It was only then that I could fully appreciate the classic argument that rages about the film. No, not whether Hans Gruber is...

Do you remember?: Comix Zone

When we were young teens, me and my brother laid claim to the basement. The rest of the house was neat and orderly, a pastel world of floral designs and tasteful drapes. But, the basement was ours. A savage land of hand-me-down sofas, coffe...

You've got character: Vega (SFIV)

When it comes to competitive multiplayer games, we all have our favorite characters and classes. In this series, I'm putting some of mine under the microscope to see what makes them tick, how they fit into their games, and ultimately why I ...
