It's been another banner year for gaming, and whittling down the huge list of 2015's games to find the best wasn't an easy task. We did it anyway. There were some truly standout titles in 2015, even starting back at the beginning of the year with...
Many first-party Nintendo titles are geared towards general audiences who want to have fun with the game they have without having to worry about all the bells and whistles of online gameplay. While this means that many of Nintendo's games are pretty shallow when it comes to online functionality/multiplayer, they're meant to be enjoyed with a group of friends in the living room.
This time, we're making a list (and checking it twice) that features all kinds of PlayStation 4-themed goodies you can get your loved one.
Folktale monsters take on a variety of forms in video games. Sometimes it can be as simple as being a standard enemy along the way, but not always. Other times these monsters come into play in ghastly ways that re-invite them into our nightmares. They can also simply be the foundation by which a game introduces a unique and fleshed out character with relative ease. Whatever the case, folklore and especially its monsters are alive and well in video games. Here we have the 10 best folktale monsters in games.
Get the hot chocolate ready and make sure you walk like a penguin to avoid falling as we trek through the frozen landscapes of the 10 Best Ice Levels in Video Games.
In a scene dominated by the likes of Halo and Call of Duty, we're always glad to look back at a series that always tries to do something different. We decided not to include any of the series' expansions, as many of the PC Rainbow Six games had a slew of add-ons that you were able to get. Put your gas masks on and get ready to breach the door, because we're about to take down the Rainbow Six series, and we're going from Worst to First.
As everyone is crowding around the dinner table for the holidays, getting ready to carve up a bird and gorge on side dishes, it's time we look back at our favorite families we've encountered throughout video game history. Family often sets the backdrop for your character's past. Many of times, family is used as the catalyst for the events of a story, whether its an abducted child or a sibling you have to rescue/protect. After a while, there were simply too many generic damsels in distress you could rescue. In order to help create a story players could be invested in, developers started throwing family members into the mix.
It's time we look at the golden age of gaming, back to a time when children would crowd around a TV screen and get frustrated at how tough Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man were. Many developers and publishers were hoping to try and recreate the widespread success of the original Super Mario Bros. throughout the mid-to-late 1980s. As a result, many of the earlier platforming games of the NES library simply tried replicating the Super Mario formula. Some were decent, and some where horrible. Luckily, developers started refining their trade over the years, learning to enhance what worked and eliminate what didn't in order to provide some quality platforming experiences. Now, it’s time we look back at the best of the best when it comes to jumping around on the Nintendo Entertainment System.
With Thanksgiving on the horizon, gamers all across the United States will partake in some epic feasts, likely topping things off with some pumpkin pie and a few video game sessions with the family. While Thanksgiving was originally supposed to be a feast of appreciation for a good harvest throughout the year, it of course has become a commercialized shadow of its original intent. Supermarkets are jacking up the prices of canned cranberry sauce and gravy, so it's time we look at the real core of the holiday: gluttony. Throughout the history of gaming, there have been all kinds of characters we've seen with insatiable, otherworldly appetites, and it's time we look at the characters who can gorge through copious, even astronomical amounts of food without faltering.
