    @naryanrobinson: This. The shit people don't play games for is absolutely childish. It's why the industry can't evolve and no one takes gamers seriously. We're sending death threats, refuse to play a ...

    A more expanded and filled out sequel

    Doom (2016) helped resurrect the aging and dying franchise. Doom 3 was scary and atmospheric but lost the fast-paced action of the original games. Doom bought this back in 2016 with a rocking soundtr...

    A fantastic story with excellent writing

    I remember Mafia back in the early days of the PS2 era. I also remember not really understanding it because I was 12 years old and probably shouldn't have been playing a Mafia game. I also remember th...

    Improves upon the first game, but still lacks a soul

    Mirror's Edge is actually one of my favorite games of all time. It didn't sell well, hence the near-decade hiatus, and a lot of gamers just didn't get the game. It also had a lot of flaws such as line...

    A decent sequel to FC5, but forces grinding and get's old fast

    One of my biggest problems with Far Cry is that it's too big. Every Ubisoft open-world game has become so large that it's boring to explore. I'd rather have a smaller area with more interesting things...

    A decent object hunting game with charming characters

    I Am Dead is a curious object hunting game about a ghost of a museum curator. That may sound boring on paper, but it's quite charming and the mini-stories within are nice enough to keep the game movin...

    A fantastic Zelda style adventure game, but with typing

    I absolutely love typing games. Why? Because it's a skill everyone needs to learn and it's a unique way to play a game that you can only do on PC. I remember Mario Typing Tutor back in the '90s and v...

    The best Star Wars flight game in years

    X-Wing vs Tie Fighter is a PC flight classic. It was chaotic, a great mix between sim and arcade gameplay, and was a blast to play and you felt like real Star Wars pilots. Squadrons try to re-capture...

    Great atmosphere and scary, but the story is a mess

    The Blair Witch Project was a movie that scared the living crap out of me as a child and is still scary to this day. The mockumentary style film was done very well and was so convincing my own mother ...

    Same ol' Sam, prettier coat of paint

    Serious Sam has never been my favorite FPS and there's a single reason for that. The game is incredibly repetitive and every campaign overstays its welcome and I'm bored before the game is even over. ...

    A decent adventure game, albeit one that isn't very memorable

    Adventure games are always hit or miss. The fundamental thing that needs to be focused on is characters and story as that's the main reason why people play these games. It takes away the action and g...

    An atmospheric game about mental health issues

    I never played the first game, but Distraint 2 caught my eye due to the visuals and atmosphere it portrayed. You play as a man who is faced with severe depression from the guilt of evicting tenants fr...

    User Rating 7
    A fast paced fun shooter but with little depth or substance

    Rage was all the...well, rage back in the day on PC. It featured "super textures" and fantastic gunplay that hadn't been seen since Doom II or Quake 3 and various other claims from id Software. Upon r...

    A fun love letter to PS2 action games, but still average

    Action games during the PS2/Xbox era are an entire evolution of their own. This is a pocket of the game that has evolved and also evolved itself at one point. Linear levels with simple combat was a r...

    A fantastic remake that's been needed for years

    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater was a huge part of my childhood. It made me want to go out and skate which I actually did. Between the ages of 9-13, I skated almost daily. I wanted to become a professional sk...

    A great Metroidvania lite

    I know pixelated 2D games have been done to death these days, but sometimes they really stand out. Inmost has detailed visuals, great animations, and an interesting and engaging horror theme and atmo...

    A great murder mystery

    "Walking simulators" are something I enjoy if the story is great. This is literally the only driving factor of this genre so if your story isn't solid neither is your game. There's usually very littl...

    An artistic treat

    I love artsy games. Some times it's nice just to sit back and play a casual game that is a visual treat. Gris is one of these games. Like many other games before it, it offers tight gameplay, but sho...

    A great ending to a long beloved adventure series

    The Longest Journey is actually one of my favorite games of all time. It was one of the first PC games I played as well and what pushed me to get into PC gaming. Adventure games were something that ...
