What's the most memorable pc game you've ever played (or still playing)?
Final Fantasy is quite possibly the most well-known role playing game series in video games. The never ending tales of sorrow, redemption, and giant yellow birds has spanned just about every major video game system from Super Nintendo, Playstation 1 through 3, and even the Game Boy. But what are the top games in the series?
For the sake of my sanity, I’ll be limiting my entries to the main line series that appeared on the major video game systems.
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.
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.
One of the best aspects of Minecraft is the ability to share your wondrous creations — and to play the wondrous creations of others. Natural landscapes, industrious cities, or some things too bizarre to categorize — it is incredible what Minecraft players have been able to create.
Here are ten of the most popular Minecraft maps.
When the latest update to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 came around, everyone came flocking over to the new and improved roster. The characters! The rebalancings! Oh the majesty of it all! However, it seems like whenever I go into the online battle modes or just playing with friends, they always gravitate towards a select few. Dante, Wesker, Spiderman, Hulk. Hell, even Shuma Gorath gets his day in the sun every once in a while. But there always seems to be some folks on the roster that get shafted for whatever reason. And that just sounds like an injustice. So, without further ado, here’s a few of the unsung heroes of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Come one, give these people a chance!
Nintendo is a video game company that thrives heavily on its nostalgic appeal. Where it falls shy in graphic realism and immersive gameplay, it makes up in sheer fun and age-accessibility. Even the big boys at Sony and Microsoft can't seem to compete with the user-friendliness of the Wii--a.k.a. the closest thing to virtual reality, not trying to hide the fact that Wii Miis look like gift shop figurines. So while you have your Bioshocks, and your Skyrims, and your Fallouts, here's a look at some franchises that do exceptionally well by how much they look to the past.
Many gamers think that the PSP has no worthwhile games. Obviously, these people haven’t played the following role-playing games.
