    The Longest Journey

    Utterly brilliant

    Buying a game that you found tucked in a corner for less than ten bucks and finding an exhilirating experience is often far more satisfying than buying a big name, overhyped game for fifty bucks and getting a merely grea... Read Full Review

    Almost but not quite

    Oh man. Talk about hype killing what greatness there could've been. Fable was one of the most anticipated games of all time. It was supposed to be an epic masterpiece, where anything that could happen did happen, wher... Read Full Review

    Panzer Dragoon Orta (Platinum Collection)

    Worthy of the series

    Panzer Dragoon Saga ended with such finality that there really wasn't anything else to be told. And yet here is Panzer Dragoon Orta, dipping into the franchise's history and previous games' plot points solely for the pu... Read Full Review

    Penguins and teddy bears skating around with hoola hoops to make music. Huh?

    To my knowledge, Technic Beat is the only music game where spacial positioning is just as important as timing(not counting the directional element of Gitaroo Man), which adds an interesting element and level of depth not... Read Full Review

    Katamari Damacy is hands down one of strangest games ever released yet also one of the most addicting. It involves controlling a tiny spaceman who rolls around a ball that causes things to stick to it. The more things ... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy VII

    Losing luster, but still a great game.

    It's really interesting to notice how many people consider Final Fantasy VII to be the single greatest RPG ever when it's really no such thing. Granted, one has to consider that Final Fantasy VII was another "first". I... Read Full Review

    When you ask people what they think is the best first person shooter ever, most will probably answer "Halo". That's their game. Serious Sam was mine. Now granted, Halo offers immersive gameplay and compelling storytel... Read Full Review

    I can never figure how a simple first person shooter can achieve such a legendary status, or for that matter how Master Chief became the next big video game character. We never find out anything about him or why he hide... Read Full Review

    Another guilty pleasure of mine, but you should seriously heed the words of the Gamespot review. The gameplay really is shallow. But do these complaints matter when the rhythm and music genre is so geeky to begin with?... Read Full Review

    Being a fan of classical music has its perks. For one thing, listening to Mozart flexes the mind(or so I'm told). For another, even the most hardcore rock singer needs classical training. And third, you get to play a ... Read Full Review
