    Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    Never thought much of this game but then GS made this a 2014 GOTY....

    Seriously, it almost sounds like all of the GS staff took off early for the holidays and Joe Shmoe, the janitor, was left in charge of running the office. He booted a PC in mid-December of 2014 and wrote an editorial for... Read Full Review

    The PC controls are broken

    This game deserves at least a 9 on its face, however, it seems that PC gamers were betrayed in favor of two sticks.I still do not know what Bioware was blabbering about when they were saying that PC gamers were in for a ... Read Full Review

    Wolfenstein: The New Order

    Not a shooter with a brain and/or soul, but definitely a shooter with a heart.

    Wolfenstein pre-dated Doom. Now ponder that for a moment. What you're playing is history. History that will hopefully be made again if the game sells well enough to warrant a sequel, and I do hope you buy this game becau... Read Full Review
