    World of Warcraft

    Rated on June 04, 2013 by Bgrngod

    This game is addictive to a dangerous degree.

    I picked this game up in December of 2004 after talking my brother into trying it out. Him and his buddies were hardcore into Everquest at the time. He dropped his Everquest account about a week lat...

    Dark Souls is not for everyone. I hated it at first, but ended up sinking over 200 hours into it. It's just that great.

    Dark Souls

    Dark Souls is not for everyone. I hated it at first, but ended up sinking over 200 hours into it. It's just that great.

    Let me state it again.. Dark Souls is not for everyone. When starting this game the first impressions are a dramatic back and fourth that will leave you scratching your head but still wanting to know...

    Diablo III does not stray far from the formula. However, it does so in the most corporate cash grab way possible.

    Diablo III

    Rated on July 05, 2012 by Bgrngod

    Diablo III does not stray far from the formula. However, it does so in the most corporate cash grab way possible.

    Diablo III is nothing short of a blatant cash grab that puts the enjoyment of the player in the backseat while thrusting the needs of the bottom line to not only the drivers seat, but the engine as we...

    Transforming is done fantastically and setting all looks fantastic. That's where the excellence ends.

    I really wanted this game to be great. I really did. It starts off with a fantastic first impression, but unfortunately things start to fall apart very quickly. For starters the campaign is extreme...

    Street Cleaning Simulator

    I can't even believe this game exists.

    The gameplay is super boring and way too difficult. There is just not enough going on for me to fight off the urge to fall asleep, which if you've ever been bored out of your mind, you know is hard t...

    Same dang game it has been for the last 4 friggin' year. NOTHING is fixed. All the broken stuff from COD4:MW is STILL broken. All of it. Absolutely every last thing. Multiplayer is broken and u...

    Mass Effect 2 is an absolute must play game if you are an RPG fan or not a fan.

    My anticipation for this game was easily the highest out of any game within the last year and for the remainder of 2010. To say that my expectations were high is something of an understatement. To s...

    Two words can describe this game with 100% accuracy: Cash Grab

    The first Modern Warfare game, usually referred to as Call of Duty 4, was nothing short of a major letdown. All the hype around that game made it sound like the best thing to ever happen for multipla...

    The popcorn game is back! It's still super fun and looks fantastic, but this time should be in the GOTY conversation.

    Uncharted 2 is the follow up to one of the best PS3 games ever made, and thankfully it gets a lot more right this time around. Everything about this game is not only bigger, better and better looking...

    BF1943 is a mockery of BF1942. Everyone involved in releasing this game should be ashamed of themselves.

    The good? $15. Money you can't get back I might add. The bad? Oh boy.. where to begin. The weapons in this game are absolutely horrendous. Yes, there is at least some variety to the weapons,...

    Dead Space = Resident Evil 4 + Doom + Event Horizon<br /> Bits of other games all mashed into one game...good bits.

    This is a direct pasting of a Blog post a made shortly after starting the game, and I think it holds true for an accurate summary of what to expect from the game. I did indeed finish it about a week ...

    Just like the first game. Decent single player. Trash multiplayer.

    Gears of War 2 is something of a disappointment simply because it is so much like the first game, and really doesn't offer anything new to the franchise but a new story and some other details that cou...

    After 6 years this game still holds up as being one of the best RTS's ever. Goofy graphics and all.

    Warcraft III came out almost 6 years ago, as of me writing this. That's plenty of time for most games to age into unplayable due to being so old. Interestingly, that has not happened with Warcraft I...

    Looks great, but it's just COD wrapped in a new skin with a few extra features.

    CoD4 is a pretty decent game. Classic? Not be a long stretch. The game has way too many problems to go down in history as one of the great ones. In fact, it will probably be quickly forgotten by t...

    Uncharted is a "Popcorn" flick for your PS3. It is super fun, and looks great, but wont win any GOTY awards.

    Uncharted was something of a surprise to me. Having owned my PS3 for just over a year, and not really playing all that much on it, I was convinced that 2007 was just not the year for the PS3 in terms...

    Oblivion is a huge, beautiful, time killing and immersive game. All hiding the fact that the actual combat system sucks.

    This game sucked up well over 100 hours of my life. For any game to do that it has to be something special. Most RPG's I play get really dull right around the 50 hour mark. Somehow, someway, Oblivio...

    Everything good about it can be experienced in the demo. At least the tradition of crappy Superman games is intact.

    Superman is an absolutely horrid game. Clearly the intention of this game is to cash in on the unsuspecting consumers that are aware a movie was released. It seems that a few of the people involved ...
