Mass Effect: I love this game a bit too much.
Six. That is the number of playthroughs I have completed for Mass Effect alone. For as many times as I have tried to break away from this game, I always get the sudden urge to go ahead and start up a...
Kid Icarus: Uprising
Kid Icarus: Uprising is the welcomed return of a nearly forgotten hero.

Splatterhouse is a brutal, challenging, underrated gem.

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One
With friends to enhance the experience, All 4 One makes for another great entry in the series.
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One certainly shows ambition for the series. While the series' main focus of zany weaponry and comical style are tried and true here, the game's primary focus is now on teamwork...

While not quite as satisfying as the HD versions, Sonic Generations 3DS is a fun version in its own right.
The HD releases of Sonic Generations have managed to put Sonic back in the spotlight and give people hope for more great games in the future. For the past ten years, Sega's iconic mascot has, ironical...
Old School collides with New School to create one of the very best Sonic experiences ever.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
Take an already fantastic adventure and make it even better (and portable).

Super Mario Sunshine
Nintendo opted to create something new and unique, and they certainly succeeded with Super Mario Sunshine.
The success of "Super Mario 64" for the N64 left a major impact in the world of gaming. It helped to define the way that a 3-D platformer should be made. Many people were eagerly awaiting for the anno...
Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires
The latest installment in the on-going series still shows to bring good old button-mashing fun despite technical issues.

Shadow the Hedgehog
Shadow's first solo adventure could have done better.
After the smash success of Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2, the series looked to have a bright future ahead of them for the 3-D age. However, that wouldn't be the case. For many people, Sonic He...

Ninja Gaiden II
Ninja Gaiden 2 shows a few frustrations thanks to the camera, but it serves as a great addition to the series.
Ninja Gaiden 2 is the sequel to the series' big revival back on the original Xbox released in 2004. Ninja Gaiden 2 brings back much of the same great elements that made the first Ninja Gaiden so great...
Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect 2 is, quite simply, a sci-fi epic.
Mass Effect was released back in 2007 with plenty of great ideas and brought us a story of political intrigue featuring an excellent dialogue system that helped raise the bar in cinematic experiences ...
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I
While a very short lived experience, Sonic 4: Episode 1 makes for a good beginning in a new 2-D adventure.
After a decade of experimentation with 3-D gameplay (debateably failed attempts), Sega and Sonic Team decide to put Sonic back into two dimensions with a sequel to the critically acclaimed Sonic 3 & K...
Mind-bending gameplay and an engaging story help to make Catherine one of the most unique games ever devised.
Literally, you never have experienced a game such as this. As far as creativity and originality goes, Catherine is definitely somewhere at the top of a list. It's both a challenging puzzle game and a ...
It may not have the staying power it once had, but Sonic Adventure is still a good buy, especially for Sonic fans.
When it was first released as a launch title for the Dreamcast, Sonic Adventure was made to be a long awaited comeback for Sonic after only a minor presence on the ill-fated Sega Saturn. Sonic Adventu...
Shank is a prime example of beat-'em up badassery.
The goal of many great hack-and-slash beat-'em up games is not based around an engrossing story and character development, but rather on mindlessly fighting your way through horde after horde of mooks...
Duke Nukem Forever
After 14 long years, Duke Nukem Forever treats us with mediocrity.
Duke Nukem is one of gaming's oldest and most recognizable icons. Known more for the groundbreaking Duke Nukem 3D, he is the ultimate symbol of every popular action star and American "Badassery". He's...
Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing
With Big Rigs, no one is winner.
It's a shame that I can't go any lower than 1.0 on Gamespot's rating system, because a game like "Big Rigs:Over The Road Racing" deserves something lower. This game.....scratch that; this mess, is the...
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
A timeless classic
The Legend of Zelda series has always brought us games of critical praise and admiration, and "The Ocarina of Time" raises the bar bigger than any prior Zelda title. It was revolutionary enough for th...
Star Fox 64 3D
What's better than Star Fox 64? How about Star Fox 64 on the go.

Banjo to Kazooie no Daibouken
While similar in many areas, Banjo-Kazooie's charm and worlds make this a stand-out platformer.
Ever since the grand debut of Super Mario 64, there have been, predictably enough, other games of similar structure. You would have wacky character placed in strange worlds collecting tons of items. B...
If one wants to experience true horror action, Dead Space has you covered.

Sonic the Hedgehog
To put it bluntly, Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) is a disgrace to the franchise.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Mega Hits!)

Sonic and the Black Knight
Sonic's journey through the realm of king Arthur is short, but it shows to be surprisingly decent.
Sonic and the Black Knight is a continuation of the storybook series previously started by Sonic and the Secret Rings, which was met with mixed results. This time around Sonic Team wanted to focus mor...
Super Mario Bros. 3
SMB3 helped to re-revolutionize platforming, and to this day it remains one of the very best in the series.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Crash Bandicoot (Platinum)
Marsupial gives plumber and hedgehog a run for their money.
