    Our list of the Top 200 Games of All Time is quite a trip through video game history, and here are a few of my own memories about some of the titles. 1. The Legend of Zelda – I never owned this game, but I did borrow it for a time from my friend... More

    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

    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
