    Back when I was a spry whippersnapper, I competed in every video game competition I could. I never won a Street Fighter tournament (although I did get to the final round once), but I did grab the gold in a Star Fox 64 competition held at 1997’s... More

    Compiling a list of the top 200 games of all time is an undertaking. Favorites are missed, sequels are argued, and friendships are strained. Naturally, some games that I thought would be shoe-ins for the top 200 ended up on the floor of the GI vault,... More

    Even with a full plate of games to play this holiday season, I am counting down the days until the release of Final Fantasy XIII. I've waited far too long to play this game, and I'm a bit of a fan (by "bit" I mean "I would knock... More

  • The Greatest Game Of All Time; One Man's Power Dragon Fantasy
