RPG of the Year - 2006

Holy shit damn, what a huge year! 57 games! And yes, there was a Sega Genesis game released this year. This is also one of those awkward years where a lot of developers were jumping to the new systems while other ones were still very uns...


RPG of the Year - 2005

Now, at first glance, this seems like a huge year. After all, there are 50 games! This was certainly a strong year for RPGs in that there were a LOT, but not so much in terms of quality. I'm confident in my top 5, but the runner ups...oh...


RPG of the Year - 2004

You think last year was a big year? Ha ha ha! This year, there are 49 games! Madness! Let's do this thang! #5 - Fable (Xbox) Let's get the obvious out of the way. Yes, it's very short. No, it didn't quite live up to everything Mol...

RPG of the Year - 2002

This was a surprisingly dry year, at least compared to last year. There are only 18 games this time and sadly, not all of them are great. Let's hop into it! #5 - Elder Scrolls 3 - Morrowind (PC) ...I am not a fan of this game. And ye...


Can game mechanics spoil us?

I have been playing the Final Fantasy IV Complete on the journey to and from work the last couple of weeks. I have been struck by this screen appearing every time I start and particularly the game noting that "Game progress will not b...


RPG of the Year - 2001

Back by popular demand that I just happened to find under the sofa, I present yet another GoTY article! This was a tough year. I mean, REALLY tough. It's bad when you've played half the games on the list and LOVED them. Yeah, THAT bad. ...


Dark Void Zero is friggin' hard!

I've been playing Dark Void Zero lately. I managed to find a use for my PS3 controller and mapped the buttons to keys on my keyboard so I could use it to play DVZ but gadzooks is it difficult! I've played it for 3 hours collectively and I s...

NES controller phone case

Dear gaming gods: Please resurrect me!

I was always fond of the PC and console gaming heyday of my youth. I remember yearning for those constant chills and thrills, knowing that certain characters and games were going to stick with me for a long time to come... if not forever....


Forgotten Gems: North & South

This image just screams "historical accuracy." Back in the NES days I didn't have my own system so all of my gaming was done at other, luckier kids' houses. Since my friends didn't want to sit there for hours while I played "The Legend o...


Something about gaming magazines.
