When does a game become classic/retro?

My attempt to objectively answer is that, at a minimum, a console must be at least 2 generations old to be "retro".  In other words, PS2 is now retro, PS3 is not.  When the PS5 comes out, PS3 will be retro.<br /><br />The problem that comes up with this question is that most of us (myself ...

Top 25 Multiplayer Games of All Time

However, in fairness, I just read the fine print to open your article and saw that you limited it to four player games.  My bad!

Top 25 Multiplayer Games of All Time

Nice list, Critic.  Only one complaint from me... You list several sports games, but you missed the best multiplayer sports game ever -- Tecmo Super Bowl (NES)!

Online Gaming with 90s Consoles

I think it's generally fair to consider the Dreamcast, or at least the Xbox, as the advent of true online gaming for consoles.  And Xbox 360 and PS3 finally made it nearly as mainstream as PC online gaming.  But long before that, there were other online console services, like XBAND for the...

Catherine (PS3)

Thanks for sharing JLH.  I've had Catherine in my Amazon "wish list" for a long time now.  I think your post might be the push I needed to finally buy it.  I like weird one-of-a-kind type games like this.

Legacy PC/Mac gaming

I don't know, but I wish I had one.  There's certain classics that I'd love to play, but they either don't run at all on modern Windows operating systems or the programs that allow them to run just aren't as good as the real thing.  For example, I bought Grim Fandango a few years back. &nb...

2015/1/7: Playstation 4: Minecraft, NBA 2K15

Critic, I'm curious, why the NA for Minecraft?  To me it suggests: "I want to give this game a D, but (a) maybe I just don't get it, or (b) I'll get criticized if I give this game a bad grade, so I'll just take the safe route and do an NA."  You've usually gone with your gut in these situa...

User Voting Online!

[QUOTE=Verm]There is the issue that some voters might deliberately over/under grade compared to what they really think of a game, in an attempt to change the average grade.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />Correct.  There is also the chance for people to do that same thing from multiple comput...

Originality/FMV Icons

For the FMV icon, a Dragon's Lair reference might be the best bet.  The only other thing I can think of would be a VHS tape (i.e., for "video").<br /><br /><br />Regarding Verm's comment, it's a good point, and perhaps there should be an icon for both -- but I don't think they should be grouped...
