Some ideas for terrible, terrible games.

I've had a bunch of thoughts go through my head and, as is often the case, they need to be vented so they can leave me and inhabit some other poor soul. So here are some ideas for games that must never be made. Oz: The MMORPG You've just...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Can PAL just die and go away now please?

I'll start this off by saying that I know little of the nuts and bolts of screens and definitions etc. When my more tech savvy friends start with their hd-1080p-whatever-the-fuck talk I tend to space out and think about butterflies and how ...

 
 
 

Games can make my mind do some pretty odd things.

I am a man of many minds. Not to the level of Fight Club, or even any diagnosable multiple personality disorder, more like a captain (me) in charge of a bunch of other people (ensigns mostly). They do what I tells them to do, most of the ti...

 
 
 

Good Idea/Bad Idea: Jack Thompson on Destructoid.

Having just read Jims post, and visiting Jack's sparse profile page (c'mon Jack, spice it up with some headers or avatars, a snappy Anne Coulter one perhaps) my mind leaped for joy at the idea that he was actually here reading this site. M...

 
 
 

Reposting this for the sake of Thompson.

If my hero Jack Thompson has taught me anything, and repeated readings of his masterpiece garbed only in sanctified gamer blood has taught me all kinds of things, it's that it's okay to engage in certain acts as a means to an end. See...

 
 
 

Why do bad games exist?

Games are art. I have said and argued this a million and one times here and elsewhere. The line between good and bad art, though, is purely personal. It's just what you like, what strikes you, what appeals to you. I hate clowns crying and e...

 
 
 
 
 

What is the "core" of hardcore?

What is hardcore? That is a question that has been bugging me for ages now. So I began to deconstruct it, let's take hardcore apart... The literal beginning of it is in the name, (doi) and is part of the expansion of masculine dominant cul...

 
 
 

Something I bought has appreciated in value!

I bought a Dreamcast at midnight. Yup, stood there outside my EB, eagerly awaiting my CD goodness after the N64. I bought is for the great games, particularly, the twodee fighters. So I bought an arcade stick to better nail the combo bet...

 
 
 

By the Power of Greyskull, I love lightgun games...

As a youngling there was an arcade nearabouts that had these things called "lock-ins", which were wonderous times where an arcade would make you pay 20 Earth money to get in and then switch everything to free play. It was fucking sweet, I...

 
 
 
 
 

Appreciating Killer 7.

I can remember that, when this game first came out, the reviewer at IGN said that if video games didn't have an arthouse category before, they did now. I don't write this to belittle the opinions of people who don't like the game, and i...

 
 
 

Hicksmas approaches!

This is off topic, as in it has little to do with games, but it is worthwhile and I feel that it can sit comfortably amongst the philosophical ramblings that this grand site tends to host. As I wander about my fair city I am reminded, agai...

 
 
 
 

Black-ban Gamespot, fuckers.

God-fucking-dammit, I was happy there for a moment, I'd just written a loving appreciative note to Mario Galaxy and now this, and now I'm pissed. This is fucking unacceptable. It belittles gaming journalism and that belittles games as a me...

 
 
 

Australia recieves Super Mario Galaxy, the wheel.

I must admit that I was pretty much burned out on Mario in the weeks leading up to the release. I was actually at a point where I was saying "meh" about it, preferring to focus my anticipation on Samus as opposed to the plumber. It is test...

 
 
 

Sexuality Gaming and the Halo 3 thing.

I'd like to preface this by saying that my net is capped so I haven't seen the video, but I have listened to whole Fred Phelps rants for my religion class so I figure it can't be worse than that. Firstly I'd like to address the comment tha...

 
 
 

Ode to Team Fortress 2.

PC gaming for me was always a sisyphean ordeal of confusion and pain. I bought the awesome Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers for my birthday once and had a hellish time getting it to work. Finally, 6 days after the worst birthday ever, we...

 
 
 
 

What drink for what game...2

Killer 7 I know that this is somewhat specific but that can be the nature of drinks and games from time to time. But trust me, this one fits. You're going to want to get a bottle of absinthe, now available to Americans for the first time ...

I can't remember my friends names but I still remember the every move in any Street Fighter game, ever. I'm an absurdist existentialist with shades of zen taoism, but call me that and I'll deny it. I own a Wii, a DS and frequently partake of my friends other 360's and PS3's. Games are art. Games are new media that must be understood.
