    Perfect. It’s a tricky word. Nothing is truly perfect, in my opinion. Even though games get a perfect rating every now and again, a truly perfect game doesn’t exist. There are several that come pretty close, but there’s always something... More

    Video game expansions are a tricky thing. They are meant to expand on the main game in a worthwhile way. Whether it be through advancements in gameplay or fleshing out the story or even tying together loose ends, expansions can make a game feel complete... More
  • Am I A Fanboy?

    “Are you a fanboy?” a teenager asked, as I sat in the hospital waiting room. At first I didn’t know who he was talking to, but he was staring right at me. “Your shirt” he said, raising a finger to point. That day, I was wearing... More

    Here lately, a few of the older GIO bloggers have returned to write. I’ve wanted to do so for quite a while, and I’ve recently been given the tools to do just that. So, consider me back from the dead. This is a video game website, as we are... More

    Before I start this little blog, I first want to thank everyone that took a peek at my previous blog. It was my first on GIO in over a year, and managed over 500 views in 24 hours of it being published. So, again, I appreciate it.

  • The Best FPS I've Ever Played

    More
    I'm not a FPS expert. I wouldn't even call myself knowledgeable about the genre. After living on this Earth for 28 years, and playing video games for 24 of them, I know what I like. And the Wolfenstein franchise isn't it. I'm a simple... More

    I suppose this blog could be called my 'Swan Song' but hopefully that won't be the case. I haven't been blogging as much here lately, and that's mostly been on purpose. I had limited myself to one a week in an effort to work on quality... More

    It's no secret that I am a pretty huge Rockstar fan. Ever since GTA 2, I've had my eye on them, and they rarely disappoint. While I haven't played their driving games, Rockstar's other franchises are some of my favorites. For me, their... More

    Before I start, I'd like to express my condolences and sympathies to the people affected by the explosions during the Boston Marathon. I don't think I'll ever understand why we, as a people, do things like that. Honestly, I don't really... More
  • More Evil Than The Big Evil

    It's no surprise that I'm a fan of the bad guy. I find villains are, for the most part, more interesting characters than the protagonists we are forced to play as in video games. If an antagonist isn't well crafted or interesting, it makes... More

    One of the more important aspects of crafting a good game or series is a supporting cast of characters. The main character, or protagonist, is supposed to be the best and most developed character, but they often are not. It's not uncommon to come... More

    The video game world is a pretty amazing source of entertainment. there's negative aspects to it, just like everything else, but as a whole, gaming is great. You're likely to agree with me, because you're reading this on a video game website... More
