WHAT A YEAR for gaming. The hits (across all genres) just kept coming and coming. Gamers were spoiled this year, and I’m not sure I’ve ever 100% completed this many games in such a short time. I ended up being in for a surprise when I found it difficult to choose the 10 best games […]
I played the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for more than 145 hours before putting it down. And I want more. I am legitimately sad I have finished all the things I wanted to! As an adult nearing 40 who has two kids and is completing a graduate program for a new career,
I’ve been on a massive retro gaming kick since we moved into our new house. Modern games simply haven’t had as much appeal for me recently! I’m finding so much to love about older titles. And I keep being delighted that classic games I play for the first time (like Rocket Knight Adventures on the
I’m pretty sure I’m legally required to try ranking the Legend of Zelda games on the 35th anniversary. Especially because it’s been my favorite series since I was a kid gaming on the NES! (when I had no idea what to do in Zelda II even though I loved it). No other game series embodies

Everyone has that one meal that brings joy and comfort in tough times. It may not be the healthiest food or the “finest dining”, but it always cheers you up and gives you that warm, happy feeling (one of my personal favorites is Greek Spaghetti that my wife makes!). Games are the same way. I
We all know that 2020 has been nothing short of horrible, for so many reasons. But there is at least one bright spot: a lot of fantastic video games were released! I know I’m not alone in being grateful for games in a time of quarantine and such anxiety. They’ve really helped me manage stress
There’s so little time to game when you’re an adult. Even more so if you have kids! Back in the day, I used to almost always complete games I owned to 100%. That was partially because I had so few games, partially because I had so much time, and partially because games were much shorter!
In the current land of retro gaming, the GameCube is remembered as an underrated gem with an excellent library. But it certainly wasn’t always that way! Released in November 2001, the console struggled against the stiff competition of the Playstation 2 and original XBox. Personally, I saw most of my friends pass on the system.
