    Frustrating and boring combat mixed with an in cohesive story hurts this one

    I love Remedy's games and always have. From the first Max Payne all the way to Quantum Break there have been ups and downs, but Alan Wake still remains my favorite game from them. Control takes place ...

    Better than Gears 4 and a step in a new direction

    Gears of War has always held a special place in my heart as it was the first game to introduce me to "next-generation" graphics. You know, shaders, real-time lighting, high-resolution textures, ambien...

    A hilarious game with over the top humor not suited for all

    Good 'ol South Park. One of the granddaddies of television backlash. Before Family Guy was South Park. An adult cartoon featuring four children living in a rural town of South Park, Colorado who run ...

    Fantastic design, but nothing to care about

    Minimalistic indie puzzle/platformer games are something I really adore. Limbo, Inside, Little Nightmares, Unraveled, and many others like it are just full of atmosphere and clever puzzle design and g...

    A decent Norse adventure game

    I'm starting to see more and more games use Norse mythology and ditching Greek mythology. With games like God of War, Greek mythology was pretty much beaten to death in gaming, and ironically, with th...

    A decent arcade remake of the original

    Punch-Out!! is a Nintendo staple as it was one of the first established exclusives of the NES. Playing as Little Mac, you run through a gauntlet of characatures with varying difficulty to put your re...

    A bare bones racer that isn't very refined

    Most people think of Excite Bike on the NES when they were the word Excite with Nintendo, but a truck series? It intrigued people and had the potential to be as addictive as Excite Bike all those yea...

    A decent light-gun game with little variety

    Resident Evil is less known for their light-gun arcade games as these are held in public places that are niche hang out spots. The Wii with its remote and Zapper attachment is just begging to be use...

    A much inferior version to Xbox 360

    Ghost Recon has always been a part of my childhood as it was one of my dad's favorite games. While we only had the inferior PS2 versions, they were kind of fun to play and really challenging. The slow...

    An abysmal mess of a game with no redeeming quality

    What do you do with one of the most infamously bad games of the seventh generation consoles? Well, you play it of course! Why would play such a masochistic game? For curiosities sake which is why most...

    An "artsy-fartsy" Sony game that didn't hit the mark

    Sony is well known for their "artsy-fartsy" games that started way back on the PS1 with titles such as Intelligent Qube and Vib-Ribbon. Later games such as echochrome and Unfinished Swan pushed this f...

    @xantufrog: Yeah, I accidentally read the comments on this game. GameSpot and IGN are notorious for having some of the biggest trolls on the internet. I usually try to avoid the comments section, but ...

    @deviltaz35: Well, for some gamers, and I'd like to think it's the minority now, any women who are leads and don't have skimpy clothing or portrayed as weak seems to offend them and make them feel ins...

    @mypetmonkey: I'm not. That term is pretty much old and beat into the ground. It's not even relevant anymore. People wanting diversity is a bad thing? Go back to 1950 dude.

    A much improved sequel, but has a few shortcomings

    Do you trust your government? Do you trust your social media outlets? Do you trust anyone with money or power? That's what Watch Dogs 2 constantly asks you as you play through the campaign. You play a...
