My Gaming Story: LAN Parties With My Dad

My gaming story does not begin with an Atari, or Nintendo, or Sega, or any other console for that matter. It does not begin with text adventures, MUDs, or point-and-click adventure games on the PC, either. It doesn't even begin with a Gam...

 
 
 

NVGR: Shopping Etiquette

I work at my local Target store as a cart attendant. It's a menial job involving bringing shopping carts into the store from the parking lot, cleaning restrooms, changing trash, helping 'guests' to their cars with large heavy items, and gen...

 
 
 

Defending the Assassin's Creed Games

I recently finished Assassin's Creed III, and I thought I'd take a few minutes to share what I liked most about each of the past AC games. Nothing special, just thought I'd post something positive on Destructoid for once. There's far too mu...

 
 
 

Rant about Mobile Games and the State of the Industry

So, I've noticed a lot of negativity about the video games industry in general, especially here on Destructoid. A lot of commenters enthusiastically responding to news of falling sales figures, cynical views of developers and publishers, th...

 
 
 

Rock Band isn't about make believe.

There are a lot of people who hate Rock Band and Guitar Hero, for one reason or another. Phrases like "learn to play a real instrument," "stupid plastic instruments," and "when will this fad be over," are constantly thrown around. Some peop...

 
 
 

A Ridiculous Game Idea

I recently had to do an assignment for my video game design course where I had to come up with an idea for a vehicle-based game. What follows is the result. My vehicle game is a sort of arcade mech combat game. Players take control of gian...

 
 
 

Nothing is Sacred: End Bosses

The V8 in front of me roars as I slam into a hunter, the force of the impact killing it instantly. I take a quick glance at the radar screen on my dashboard; another one is behind me. I slam on the handbrake and do a 180 degree turn, befo...

 
 
 

My Experience With Half Life

My last video game purchase was the Xbox 360 version of The Orange Box in February/March of this year (I can't quite remember which) , based largely on the fact that it was twenty dollars and I had immensely enjoyed Portal when I had played...

 
 
 

A Disturbing Flaw in my Personality

I have many character flaws. After all, I'm not perfect. Nobody is. But as I was playing Gears of War 2 recently, a friend pointed one out to me that had me actually spooked. I'm a lazy person; I can be infuriatingly laid-back. My laziness...

 
 
 
 

Some Excellent Underrated Handheld Titles

In the days before I really got into console gaming, a transition which I mark as when I truly began to be obsessed with video games, I played a lot of handheld games, as well as a few PC games. I just felt like I should do a post about fiv...

 
 
 

Why There Should Be More Cats in Video Games

I've noticed that there seems to be very few of my favorite animal in video games these days, whether as main characters or whatever. Everyone seems to like dogs better, as evidenced by the most recent Zelda game, Fable II, and Fallout 3. W...

 
 
 

I Suck at Games: MMORPGs

Massively multiplayer online games have, to me, always been repulsive in almost every way. My best friend is obsessed with one called FlyFF, and I just don't understand why. All he ever seems to do in that game is level grind relentlessly...

 
 
 

How Video Games Changed My Life

I have never, ever been a particularly good student, at least not as far as grades go. In my freshman year of high school, I failed my trigonometry/precalculus course and had to retake it the next year. Mind you, in my school trigonometry/p...

 
 
 

Another Example of Why I Love Destructoid

I just got kicked twice in a row from IRC for saying that I prefer Skittles to M&Ms. My reaction both times was to actually laugh. I was kicked for stupid stuff, and yet I'm not angry. Something about Destructoid takes away my angry thoug...

 
 
 
 

Why I Love Destructoid

Quite simply, Destructoid is the best gaming-related site I've ever been on, for several reasons. First off, the community is awesome, largely because it seems so small. The same names seem to keep popping up in comments on the main blogs,...

 
 
 

Rock Band Problems

Okay, so I recently learned that you can have a 6" figurine made of one of your Rock Band 2 characters. It looks really cool for me because I love my Scary Spikes character. He looks awesome, especially with his Gretsch Jupiter Thunderbird ...

 
 
 
 

Songs I Think Should be DLC for Rock Band

"Hammered" by Motley Crue "Renegade" by Styx "When the Levee Breaks" by Led Zeppelin "Symphony of Destruction" by Megadeth "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne "Mr. Crowley" by Ozzy Osbourne "All Nightmare Long" by Metallica "Owner of a Lonely He...

 
 
 

Why Do People Hate Halo?

Okay, I've noticed a tendency, especially, for some reason, among British people, to hate Halo and the Halo franchise, often irrationally so. I simply do not understand, nor do I understand why I've observed more British people spewing hat...
