    Well I'm a Mighty Mighty Man, I'm Young and I'm in My Prime

    I tell yah, I've played quite a handful of open world games, but no environment has been quite as gloomy as Fallout 3. I prefer lush colorfully vibrant landscapes...not nuclear fallout hell-scapes.An...

    With 12 games, this is a fine place to start

    I'll be honest, I've only played 1, 2 and part of 3. Assassins Creed 2 was the first one I played and I feel it drew me in and kept my interest best.The Italian backdrop is perfect and I even travelle...

    This is the point to jump in.

    I jumped into this series with the original Mass Effect, and I am happy I did the full 1 -> 2 -> 3,. But if starting from the very beginning isn't important to you, I would begin with Mass Effe...

    Yeah, its really good

    I feel like there's no dearth of reviews for this game, but it seems even generally the consensus is its phenomenal.I would say exploring Hyrule this time around is what it felt like to play Ocarina ...

    Its the Heckin Mario You Needed

    It's been said before, but this game is the closest Nintendo has come to recreating the feeling many had playing Super Mario 64 in the 90's. Having just explored Super Mario 3D All Stars, the origina...

    Fun for the history and the challenge

    Super Mario 64 - I'm old enough to remember playing Super Mario 64 on the N64. The vibrant colors and magical world(s) entered through Peach's castle was enthralling back in the late 90's and early 2...

    Happily Fills a Friday Night

    If you're of age, a few drinks and some Mario Kart after work are the play for a Friday with nothing else to do. Can be enjoyed solo or with some buddies. I found this to bring me much joy during the ...

    Do it for the History

    This game is old. 22 years at the time of this "review". That's like 40 years in gaming. I wasn't able to play the original TLOZ: Ocarina of Time, as I only had hand-held gaming devices. I mostly enjo...

    Peak Open World Storytelling

    This game is summarized in three words as "sexy demon hunting".If you really enjoy open world RPGs and storytelling, play this game. It even has a mode for making the game easy enough to just make you...

    Absolute Quality Pocket RPG

    Received this game for my GBA back around 2001-2002. I've dug it up and found my handheld's old AC adapter to play it through once more. What a delight! The story is engaging and adorable, and the lev...

    Please Play This

    This game is incredibly well crafted, written, paced, and feels new. It does not have cutting edge graphics but an art style that still delivers excellent visuals. Flying the space ship can be challen...

    Massive and Beautiful from 2011

    I originally picked up ES 5: Skyrim for Xbox 360 a few years after release. Microsoft refused to make it backwards compatible for the Xbox One, maybe because they released the special edition specific...

    A Must for Handheld Turn-Based Strategy

    I found this copy of Advance Wars 2 that I played back in 2003 in my old childhood bedroom. I popped it into my DS lite that I also found in that bedroom for my 5 hour flight back to LA. This game is...

    Worth a Replay

    After completing Red Dead 2, I was tempted to go back and replay the original (Red Dead Revolver doesn't count imo). Although the game seems much smaller in scope and detail these many years later, I ...

    Good for Multiple Playthroughs

    This is the second Fire Emblem I played after the original US release on the GBA. This one definitely emphasizes more on the stories and characters than the strategy elements (at least on normal and ...

    The Right Way to Reboot

    Played the 1998 remake when it came out as a young lad as my first Zelda game. This Switch remake was a bit of a nostalgia play but it is worth it whether or not you played the '93 or '98 versions. In...

    Still a Classic

    Played this game on release in 2003, and recently picked it back up to play through again. Although in 2020 it's a pain to be navigating a small GBA screen with a lot going on, I still enjoy just how ...
