The action just doesn’t get any better than these 10 winners of 2015.
There is too much content spread across a large game structure.
When StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty was released back in 2010, it marked a change in how I played games. I got sucked into the competitive multiplayer mode to the point where I joined my university’s StarCraft II collegiate team as well as discovered the wonderful world of eSports. As time went on and StarCraft II failed […]
Victor Vran Victor Vran has no right being as good as it is. The story, voice acting and overall presentation are all very mediocre, but it’s the supreme game play that makes it stand out. It’s a standard action-RPG, similar to Diablo, but it shakes things up a bit with its two-weapon system. Each weapon […]
When Destiny first came out in 2014, I played it religiously. Every day, I’d log in to do the daily bounties or Weekly Strike in order to obtain the best possible loot that I could find. It almost became a way of life. Despite my obsession, I definitely recognized the glaring faults of the game. […]
Titan Souls is like the creation of some of my childhood video game fantasies. I always wanted a game that was purely boss fights — no fluff, just 100% boss fights as the number one game play element. Titan Souls is the manifestation of that desire and creates an experience that’s unlike many others. Its basic […]
There’s something to be said about a game that puts all of the control into your hands. Every mistake, slight calculation and eventual death are caused by you. On the other hand, every execution, slick maneuver and eventual success are also caused by you. The Souls series has always been known for these attributes that […]

Ori and the Blind Forest kept surprising me in numerous ways, from the utter beauty of the visuals and animation to the top-tier level design. Aside […]
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell is a prime example of when a series has put itself into a precarious position. The ever-increasing absurdity that has become the Saints Row franchise has now reached the nether region of Hell in this stand-alone expansion. It takes many of its ideas and game play elements from Saints […]
2014 was the awkward first year after next-gen consoles released, and the missteps were abundant. From Assassin’s Creed: Unity to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, it seemed like almost every game released with errors. Topped off with a poor selection of games exclusive to the consoles, 2014 was a bit of a lackluster year for […]
Geometry Wars³: Dimensions is a lot like the stepdad who comes into your life after your mom remarries; he’s adequate, but he never quite feels like your real dad. Sierra taking over the Geometry Wars series from the dead clutches of Bizarre Creations is a seemingly smooth transition, but there are a few key missteps […]
“All right, this is going to be amazing,” I told myself minutes before midnight on the eve of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection release day. My body was filled with Red Bull, Doritos and hype as I was ready to plunge into nostalgic goodness. I loaded up the multiplayer mode immediately upon starting the […]
