    Fallout 3

    Fallout 3 was fun, gross and immersive all in one.

    I think Bethesda learned a lot from their mistakes with Oblivion. In Fallout 3, they gave us a clever world, one you that want to explore. They gave you interesting sidequests, ones you want to complete. The battle sy... Read Full Review

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Oblivion was a bland experience from start to finish.

    Granted, I wasn't a big fan of Mirrowind. I'm also not a huge fan of PC RPGs in general, but I like to give them a shot. I knew what to expect with Oblivion, but I stuck with it until the very end. With that said,... Read Full Review

    Man, I don't even know where to begin with this game. I wasn't a huge fan of Sonic games growing up. I had a lot of fun with Sonic, but that was the jest of it. I don't quite get the Sonic universe or any of the wacky... Read Full Review

    Dragon Quest IV is a solid RPG history lesson.

    I played the original Dragon Warrior IV but it was a bunch of years ago and I only spent a couple hours on it. So I can't really compare this remake with the original to well. However, I must say, this remake does hold... Read Full Review

    Albert Odyssey's crazy dialog makes it all worth it.

    Albert Odyssey is a special game. Not because of the battle system. The battle system is really generic, and frankly, boring at times. The graphics aren't special. They're just 16-bit graphics redux for a Saturn. Th... Read Full Review
