What's the most memorable pc game you've ever played (or still playing)?
When it comes to videogames, we are insatiable conquistadors. We want the power to do anything and everything. We don't want rules, and we don't want structure. We want to be the ones in charge. And this explains the success of the open-world, or sand-box-style, video game. In them, missions are not of utmost priority, and we can continue to enjoy ourselves like free-wheeling hedonists, thinking, 'I'll get around to saving the girl when I get around to it.' Once you've been enabled like that, there is simply no other way. Accordingly, here are the top ten sand-box games that only let us do whatever we want.
Many gamers think that the PSP has no worthwhile games. Obviously, these people haven’t played the following role-playing games. Each of these RPGs has excellent graphics, amazing sound, and is just plain fun. These are the games that show off the PSP at its best—and make playing the handheld system quite enjoyable.
Bored? Have time to kill? Have work that probably should get done, but simply isn't? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you probably need to hang up a few more motivational posters in your office, with pictures of soaring eagles above the word 'productivity.' Or perhaps you just need a good distraction (which is pretty much what the internet was built for). If captioned pictures of grammatically-lacking cats and Youtube videos of Nicholas Cage quotes don't do the trick, perhaps something a little more interactive will--for instance, a game. There are inumerable websites out there clamoring for attention, all offering the same basic thing. Here are ten that stand out among the rest, and offer true interactive entertainment in the form of free online games.
This list is for the most worthwhile games to play in 2013. It could be on any platform, XBox, PS3, PC, iPhone, Android, etc. as long as it is released in 2013.
Oh look, Xbox One and PS4 are out (well, sorta.) And the release of these two new systems means at least three things: Christmas must be right around the corner, there aren’t enough drains in the street to collect all the multi-colored varieties of -gasming taking place right now, and one or more people are probably dead. But while you could contribute to the insanity and pay homage to a system that ritualistically manufactures want, you could also hold on to your money/dignity/autonomy and ignore this passing of the merry-go-round. If needed, here are ten pretty good reasons to avoid this year’s console hype.
007 has been a kind of an institution in film. Consistently adding entries to the franchise catalogue on an intermittent basis since the sixties, finding relevance with every global war and reinvention with every contracted actor to don the killer cufflinks, to this day we still wait anxiously for the inevitable next in the series (number 23 on the way and to be directed by Sam Mendes!). There's something inherently irresistable about an uber-masculine, heroic Brit that mixes both gentlement-like classiness with a primal penchant for violence (that ever-enforced license to kill) and shakes them (never stirred) together into one badass cocktail. Accordingly, such an iconic character undoubtledly leaves a lot of emulation to be desired: who wouldn't want to Bond? Countless game developers must have asked this very rhetorical question, because many a video game positioning gamers in the shoes of the one and only have thrived and even found cult followings. Let's take a look at the top ten of such interative adaptions of the spy we all love.
