Christmas-themed video games might seem like the best way for developers to cash in on the holiday season, but there's a conspicuous lack of these titles on the market. Believe it or not, this is a good thing, because the vast majority of Christmas games to date have been pretty bad and, what's more, inexplicably weird.
Anyone who argues that video games are full of senseless violence and lack genuine emotion simply hasn't spent enough time with a controller in their hands. In fact, many games are driven by heartfelt love stories at their core. Some are cute and Disney-esque, while others are doomed from the start in the tradition of Greek tragedy. Either way, the video game romances we present here are all epic
Sometimes you feel like really taking your time with a video game, digging around, finding treasure, leveling up to maximum capacity. Other times you just want to run like hell. These are those times, and if you've ever played any of these games, and you suffer from untreated anxiety, you might not want to watch these videos. Speed runs can get a bit intense.
This video from Fox Sports would have us believe that Mike Tyson has never played the classic Nintendo game that shares his name. Actually, considering all the trouble Iron Mike got into during the '80s, that's probably accurate.
We're excited for Grand Theft Auto 5, which comes out on Sept. 17, 2013. It's going to be Rockstar's biggest open world game ever, which is saying something, because Rockstar really goes all-in on this front. But, let's be realistic -- you won't be able to do everything in this game. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. After all, you don't want to take time out from gameplay to buy toilet pap
Good ol' Black Thought. Not only is he an amazingly talented member of The Roots and Jimmy Fallon's house band, but he's also willing to admit on national television that he's a "game freak." And then willing to do rap to the theme from Super Mario Brothers.
Yesterday, Sony revealed their new gaming system the PS4. Considering how up in arms everybody was over the XBox One, it's no surprise that people were more than willing to hop onboard the PS4 bandwagon. When they announced that the console would cost $100 less than XBox, it was basically all over. Here's how people were reacting.
Legend has it that 30 years ago Atari buried a massive cache of video game cartridges in a landfill in New Mexico. Specifically, they buried tons and tons of copies of the failed 'E.T.' video game, an Atari non-classic that nearly sunk the gaming industry. Now a film crew has been given six months to search the massive 100 acre landfill to find the motherlode of lost games and confirm that the sto
Theft is usually pretty cut-and-dry, but a teen in Wales definitely blurred the line when he stole and gave away a friend's stockpile of virtual money in the online role-playing game RuneScape. Does this qualify as a real crime?
Microsoft unveiled their new gaming console yesterday, and people were not impressed. Actually, they were pretty complain-y and grumpy about it. They don't like the name (Xbox One). They don't like all the features. They don't like any of it. (Particularly how the Microsoft folks pretty much just talked about TV the whole time.) They genuinely dislike it so much that they took the time to make mem
