As we have seen throughout the past, independent development companies can create experiences that excel far beyond their big-budgeted contemporaries. In order to get their names out there, indie developers must try to prove their worth by stepping out of the box and providing genuine games that players can't find anywhere else on the map. Easily seen within this list of the 10 Best Indie Games of 2013, indie developers may have extremely limited resources, but can still put together titles that are just as, if not more, entertaining and compelling than their better-known counterparts. Some of these developers are a one-man-gang in terms of creation - where most development companies would allocate a team to create the sound effects, a team to design the levels, a team to design the models and a team to write the story, there is only one person (or just a couple) at work doing it all. Yet, these titles still amaze us. Without major publishing companies to advertise for them, many of these titles remain relatively unknown, which is a shame considering the level of talent needed to bring them to life. So we're giving respect to the best small-time hits of this past year with the 10 Best Indie Games of 2013.
Nearly twenty years ago, Street Fighter II was one of the most popular arcade games across the world. As such, it made sense to try and capitalize on that success with a movie tie-in. Universal Pictures tapped the writer of 'Die Hard' and 'The Running Man' to adapt the game into a feature. The results were less than stellar. While 'Street Fighter: The Movie' still has some cult classic status with fighting game and martial arts fans, it's just not a good movie. Still, the game franchise continued to be a success, so we figured we'd look in on the cast to see if what they did back then affected where they are now.
It's been another phenomenal year for video games, and the launches of two new next generation consoles has only added to the awesomeness of 2013. Though current gen consoles have had a full year to build up their libraries with contenders for Best Game of the Year, the PlayStation 4 has only had about a month. Still, there are a handful of games we can easily dub the Best PlayStation 4 Games of 2013, and that's just what we're going to do today.
Video games based on movies, more often than not, suck. And like movie games, most TV show games suck. Enough to warrant a 10 Weirdest Video Games Based on TV Shows list. There are far fewer games based on TV series, probably because trying to make a game that ties into a lengthy story while the original story is still going makes for a major headache, but that doesn't mean some brave (re: crazy) souls haven't tried to bring our favorite shows to our favorite consoles. There a
The game business has been following the movie business model for quite some time now. Teasers being released for actual trailers, trailers that seem to be better than the game it's actually promoting, which is why we're doing a list of the Best Video Game Trailers of 2013.

This 10 Best iOS Board Games list may not be the most accurate representation of the word "best." You see, most of the board games on this list aren't anywhere near a "best" rating. Most of the games listed are from Electronic Arts, a company housing a secret division whose sole purpose is to take the board games we love, make a good version, then update and destroy them. But they have to be included since this is about board games. There are some winners in this 10 Best iOS Board Games list, but just like the end results of your favorite board game, someone has to come out the loser.
