  • My Pile of Shame

    36 4
    One of the constants in my gaming life is something that’s probably familiar to most of us: the pile of games that I haven’t gotten around to finishing (or worse, starting). My collection is the only thing in the house that I keep organized... More
  • Games That Ruled My World

    It seems like all the cool kids are doing it these days. So I thought it was high time I threw my hat into the ring as well. Don't worry, this isn't one of those fancy-pants favorite-games-of-all-time lists. Disappointed? You shouldn't be... More
  • My Top 10 Games Of All Time

    83 11
    Let me begin this article with a confession: I went Gollum all over Game Informer’s Top 200 list. No, this has nothing to do with my lobbying for The Lord of the Rings video games, nor does it tie in with New Zealand’s Gollum attenuatus (also... More
  • Kids (My Nephews) Review New Super Mario Bros. Wii

    Over the Thanksgiving holiday I brought home New Super Mario Bros. Wii to play with my nephews who are 9 and 10 years old. After spending some time with the Wii title they decided to write their own reviews on the game. I think they’re just trying... More

  • The Cutting Room Floor: Games That Didn’t Make the Top 200

    82 2
    As you are probably aware, Game Informer recently released its list of the Top 200 Games of All Time. I’m sure you thought of a game or two that should have made the list and didn’t. If it makes you feel any better, we had the same problem... More
  • Impulse: The Top Ten Downloadable Console Games of All Time

    70 3
    In honor of our big Top 200 game feature in the magazine, I thought I’d tackle the much less ambitious task of looking at the recent rise of the downloadable console game, and share my choices for the best titles that have emerged since the advent... More
  • How To Cheat The Greatest RPG Ever Made

    50 5

    Our list of the Top 200 games is full of compromises. There are some games that I personally think are glaring omissions (Myst), and others that shouldn't be on the list at all (Batman: Arkham Asylum), but there is one big victory on that list for me that makes all the imperfections worthwhile: Final Fantasy III at #8 as the greatest RPG of all time.

  • 5 Games That Stole My Life

    Originally, I was going to try and write my top 10 favorite games of all time. But I could not pick. I just kept changing my mind and I will end up editing this post a million times. So instead, I looked back at a few of the games that took a lot of time... More
  • Super Mario World Totally Owns Super Mario Bros. 3

    39 6
    In light of our recent Top 200 Games of All Time feature I thought I’d settle the matter on the best Mario game ever. Many people choose Super Mario Bros. 3 and don’t realize that they’re completely wrong. Super Mario World is way better... More

    Top games of all time mean a lot of things to a lot of different people. To me, I look at not only the quality of the game, but how the game made me feel and what impact it had on my life. Sadly, many of the early 2600 games like Adventure, don’t... More
