Whoa, who the frak is Fronz? Hi! Some of our long time readers might remember me as the first editor Niero hired back in 2006. I was the Editor-in-Chief in the interim between Robert Summa and Nick Chester, and later on I hel...   read

  Watch Video In the previous debate we matched the three current generation consoles against one another to see which would be the victor of this era of gaming. When the dust settled, the PS3 ran away with the crown, but who claimed secon...   read

  Watch Video In the previous debate we welcomed the community to vent their frustrations over all the series they wished would just die, and this week we discuss a game that has yet to even be born. As for the winner of the most hated gam...   read

For this week's mind teaser we're not just using our brains, we're using our ears. Rhythm Doctor on Newgrounds challenges players to participate in the tunes at specific moments to progress, with an interesting (bizarre) spin...   read

Game Debate to the Death
In a recent debate, Dtoid user ctrain had a very good point. For a Web series that's been running for seven years with the name "Game Debate to the Death" we've certainly seen a lot of debates, but not so many deaths. There h...   read

In the previous debate we welcomed the new Tomb Raider installment with a debate against its predecessors in the series. Every single game in the series received at least one vote, so it was fulfilling to see it be a close ra...   read

In the previous debate we gave the SimCity hate a rest and instead focused on which game developer was the most loyal to their fans. More than a hundred people joined in on the debate and dozens of teams received much deserve...   read

It's a little too short, a little too simple, a little tedious, and doesn't have enough music, but that's still not stopping me from declaring that The Guardian on Newgrounds is one of the best simple pixel art games I've eve...   read

I love games that find complexity by exploring simplicity. This flash game does a great job of stripping down the fill-a-grid color maze genre, and it continually adds new path manipulation puzzle concepts along the way. I wi...   read

Last week we debated over which of the Dead Space games was most worthy of a trophy, and it was great reading through your comments that brought up gameplay, visuals, scare factors, and other elements to judge the series on. ...   read

You poor, poor gamer soul. It's getting late and you were just about to sign off and go to bed. Then you checked the new Monday Mind Teaser. You fool. It's no secret that this is one of the most addicting flash games ever mad...   read

Last week's Assassin Creed debate turned into a rogue race between the first two games in the series, with Assassin's Creed II coming out on top by a few votes . . . and jumping to its close demise in a pile of hay below. Bro...   read

I found this game before I knew it was associated with a preteen dystopian adventure novel, and while The Keepers trilogy is far from being the next Harry Potter craze, it still looks like it could be a good gift for your you...   read

Since you guys liked Sembeo sound matrix so much, here's another spatial sound synthesizer program that lets you create music. This one feels slightly more like a game in that each note has an intended direction to it, so by ...   read

I saw this wonderful vocabulary game on Reddit a few months ago and have been meaning to post it ever since. I've been busy with the Flixist launch for the last few months, but now that things are stable and awesome on a dail...   read

This week I'm taking it easy on your brains. Really easy. Super incredibly hyperbole easy. So easy that reading this paragraph might be harder for some of our readers than actually beating this game. If you're ready to set ou...   read

In the previous debate I started bringing the massive RPG debate tournament qualifiers to a close by asking everyone which Wild Arms game was their favorite out of the entire series. After reading through all of the comments ...   read

No, that's not a piece of pixel art, nor is it a Myst puzzle key. It's a lovely spatial sound synthesizer flash program that lets you plug in notes like a monochromatic Lite-Brite toy that creates music depending on which axi...   read

In the previous debate I took a break from our ongoing RPG series debate topic to see how you all would adapt when asked which of these two vastly different games was better: StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty (49 votes) -- Winn...   read
