    What Were Your Peak Gaming Years?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 December 2018

    For some of us gaming is a lifelong hobby/passion. However, certain periods are more intense or memorable than others. What were the years that you played the most games or were most interested in gaming? When were you happiest and when did you play a string of your favorite games? For me it was between 2009-2013. Those were the years I wrote reviews for this site. I was one of the most active...

    What is the Last Game You Want to Play Before You Die?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 22 October 2018

    If you knew you were dying with no chance of recovery and had time just to play through one game which game would you choose? Rules: If it is a story driven game with a plot/campaign and such you can play as long as it takes to complete the main story. No 100% or side missions. All other games such as fighters, racers, MMO, or multiplayer focused game you have exactly 50 hours to play...

    You Become Famous But Your VGC Posting History Becomes Public! How Screwed Are You?

    Say you hit the big time. Your face is everywhere. Suddenly some punks on the internet find out your VGC username and unleash your worst postings on the world. How screwed are you? Are you tame on here? Is this where you let your wild side come out? Would you be instantly fired like Disney did to James Gunn? What about other parts of the internet? Maybe some of you should just go ahead and...

    Games that Completely Changed a Developer's Reputation

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 04 July 2018

    Reputations are earned sometimes over a long string of releases but sometimes it just takes one game to dramatically improve or tarnish that reputation.   One example is Uncharted 2 for Naughty Dog. Uncharted was a surprise hit. Crash and Jak series did well but it wasn't until Uncharted 2 became of one the highest rated games ever and swept GOTY awards that people started calling them...

    Best and Worst Changes in Art Direction?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 18 May 2018

    Sometimes when a franchise reboots or appears on a new console the developer decides to dramatically change the art direction. Which were good and which were bad? Some of the best: Rayman: to Street Fighter: to Dragon Ball Z: to   Hmm all of those examples go from 3D to 2D. I am sure its just a coincidence.   Here are some of the...

    What are the Sexiest Moments in Mainstream Gaming? (SFW)

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 09 May 2018

    What are the sexiest moments in mainstream gaming? By mainstream gaming I mean events that happened in game or during cutscenes of commercially released and marketed games on console/ PC. Mods, porn parodies, hentai games, fan art and creations, and dating sims don't count. The absolute sexiest moment is obvious: But what are other possible runner ups? The GOW games all had steamy sex...

    Which of the Big 3 Responds Best to What Fans Want?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 05 May 2018

    So Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo all have their passionate fans. They each interact with the fans in their own way whether it is through Nintendo Direct, PlayStation Blog, or Major Nelson (is that even still a thing?) but which of the three shows that they hear what fans are saying and actually gives them what they want. Here are some examples for each: Microsoft Listened: -When fans hated...

    Franchises That Shoul Bring Back Multiplayer?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 24 April 2018

    Some long running series that had a multiplayer mode in the past have dropped them in more recent iterations. There was a time when nearly every game tried to jam in an online mode but it worked for some better than others. For example Bioshock 2 has multiplayer but Bioshock Infinite did not. Tomb Raider reboot had multiplayer but it was taken out for Rise of the Tomb Raider. GOW Ascension had...

    Most Memorable Playable Demos?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 17 April 2018

    What are the most memorable demos in your life? I remember as a kid I used to play PS1 demo discs all the time. I remember one for Crash Bandicoot and Tomba I played those over and over again. I still have the demo disc that came with my Gamecube. I played those demos a lot (Splinter Cell, Sonic Adventure DX, Billy Hatcher) but played the Soul Calibur II demo the most. There were years where me...

    Games That are Good at One Genre but Suck at Another

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 11 April 2018

    Some games combine genres. Sometimes it works perfectly and the two sides work in perfect harmony. Other times it can be a bit lopsided where a game is good in terms of one genre but bad in terms of another. For example, Resident Evil 5 is a pretty good third person action shooter but most would probably agree it is a poor survival horror game. I think Murumasa the Demon Blade is an awesome 2D...

    in Movies Discussion, last active on on 06 April 2018

    He is best known for directing Grave of the Fireflies a movie that many here, including myself hold in high regard. According to Yahoo Japan he died at age 82 and his health had been declining steadily. He also directed the films Only Yesterday, My Neighbor the Yamadas, and The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, for which he received an Oscar Nomination for Best Animated Film. I think Miyazaki is more...

    What are the Most Brazen Attacks in the History of the Console Wars?

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 11 April 2018

    We all know on the surface the console makers try to seem friendly to the competition. They may send out a congratulatory tweet every now and then but deep down they are competing for the same dollars. Sometimes they take subtle measures to gain an advantage but other times the attack is direct, public and stinging. What are the most brazen attacks that come to mind for you? A few...

    Best 3rd Party Games and Franchises That Never Released on PlayStation Platforms

    in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 16 March 2018

    PlayStation has always been strong in terms of 3rd party support. Especially on home consoles it is usually the safest bet for receiving the big name 3rd Party multiplats and even exclusives. After more than 20 years and 6 platforms nearly all the major 3rd Party series have been released on PS in some form or another. However, there are a select few that to my knowledge have managed to thrive...

    What's your favorite game that you have never owned?

    It makes sense that you would buy a game if you think it is something you are interested but sometimes it does not work out like that. What are your absolute favorite games that you have never owned personally? Maybe it is a game that you played through a rental service. Maybe it was a game you only played when over at a friends house. Maybe it is an arcade game that you could not justify paying...

    How far have you gone to play just one game? Have you ever bought a console just to play one game? Have you ever gone to another country just to track down a rare game? Have you ever fished out an old console and fixed parts just for one game you never finished? I recently bought Metal Gear Solid the Twin Snakes for Gamecube online at Game stop. It came out to $44 with tax and shipping. I have...
