    1
    Before I go any further, only one of these games was completely irredeemable, hence the blog title. They were merely average to me, aside from the “top” pick. As stated in my top 5 list, I did not play many new games in 2015, so many of my... More
  • What Can Job Simulator Teach Us About VR?

    2 1
    Beating 60 games was a huge goal for me last year, and in 2016 I have beaten 7 games so far to add to the record I began 2 years ago. College takes me away from gaming, but that hasn't been an obstacle to my play sessions. I decided to continue with... More
