    Best 'Hand-Drawn' Game

    I don't think pixel art counts. I feel like 'hand-drawn' suggests a style you could do on paper. Which, yes okay, you could draw a bunch of little squares or whatever, but pixel art is kind of inherently 'computer-y' Anyway, Guacamelee was a cool one.

    Stupid Video Game Troupes

    I can pretty easily forgive classic Doom for boom barrels, but then the problem is that I see every other boom barrel as "Like Doom had, but dumber."

    Stupid Video Game Troupes

    I don't know if this is the best way to phrase it, but false urgency? You know how in Skyrim or GTA or whatever, the main plotline stands around waiting for you to start missions? And no matter how long you do or don't take, it changes nothing? That's... fine I guess. It's a somewhat necessary...

    Who/What is the most terrifying, BEST villain in fiction media?

    Yakuza 0's Daisaku Kuze is maybe my favorite villain. Not necessarily the most terrifying, but the best execution in context.

    My list of Retro Games to play during the Pandemic.

    GTA4 got better when I ran all the stories together, loosely following this guide for synchronizing them even though the formatting is a bit borked. Seems that a website update sometime in the last 10 years started recognizing bbcode and now a couple references to mission-givers are misread as...

    Best Sword in Gaming

    Proper iconic, not Ubisoft iconic.

    What was your first gamer moment?

    When I was like 4, I got to the third level of the NES Little Nemo game, which was huge to me because I had only ever seen the first and second. So I jumped up to go tell my parents the exciting news. But I tripped. Here's the thing: The living room in that house is separated from the tile...

    Unpopular Opinion Thread

    Here's a couple. DmCDMC was good. Not the best of the franchise, not the worst. It certainly doesn't deserve all the hate and ridicule it gets. I'd play the sequel they're never gonna make. The Binding of Isaac was better when it first came out. There was a certain artistic clarity in it that...

    Unpopular Opinion Thread

    User score review bombs don't always happen for good reasons, but you're right that you can get extra information from them.

    Sections you despise in games you like?

    There are perfectly valid reasons to feel that way, except actually you're objectively wrong for ever saying anything remotely bad about God of War. (The Kraken was kind of lame tho)

    Sections you despise in games you like?

    Remember Dante's Inferno? I'm only somewhat ashamed to have enjoyed it. But towards the end, I forget which circle of hell specifically, the game just visibly ran out. Like turning in homework with a couple missing paragraphs. Instead of the themed level designs, the game made you go through...

    Best Gun in Gaming

    One of the versions of Brutal Doom, or maybe a mod made for brutal doom, I dont know.... But, you know, shotgun exists. The twist was that it had an alternate "slug" mode (which I'm sure was just accomplished by reducing the spread to zero) and it meant I could kersplode an imp in one shot from...

    [Game Jam] Announcing the Flaming Hot Jam!

    I'm basically nowhere. Been trying to talk my fiance into helping with the art assets, but she's low on time and it's been stalled. Thankfully, my plan is fairly minimalist anyway, so it should still be possible to finish it.

    What Makes Good Stealth Games

    The orcs in Shadow of Mordor were dumb as bricks, but that was part of the fun.
