My friends are a cynical bunch...


Usually you have us playing a lineup of hot garbage!

Re: Best Sports Video Games of All Time!

It's a wild world when world of outlaws is the only game (or honorable mention) released in the last 10 years on the list (super pro tennis for intellivision doesn't count)!

Why have sports games gotten so bad?

Re: Celeste (2018) - just another overrated indie game

Celeste's level design is absolutely genius. This is the most expertly crafted 2D platformer I have ever experienced. Celeste trumps anything Nintendo or any other developer has done in 2D, and trumps it by a mile. I agree and this immediately puts it in A territory. The following is very interesti...

Re: 2019/4/20: Nintendo Switch: Hollow Knight

Great review. I downloaded this game last night and at $15 it's a steal. I am enjoying it but the map doesn't make a lot of sense to me. How do I know where the heck I am at on the map? Am I missing something. There doesn't seem to be anything on the map that marks my current location. Anyway, than...

Re: Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

In the past years I really didn't have much desire to download because the market is flooding with games and there were few if any standouts. I know there are gems out there (like Star Ghost and Costume Quest which I reviewed in 2016) but I just don't have the time or desire to track down the needl...

Re: Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

If I'm not mistaken, it was my post raving about how Axiom Verge reinvigorated my love of gaming that brought it to his attention. And having said that, I have not returned to Hollow Knight since I first downloaded and played it for a couple hours. I can see how it might drag me in if I give it due...

Re: Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

I think the Critic has the idea that games not on disk are generally of lower quality than the ones published on physical media. I believe the rest of us heartily disagree that there is any necessary correlation between quality and publishing method. I think it was probably a fair point at some poi...

Re: Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

Hey, if you can’t do it, we don’t have a chance. We’ve been trying for 10 years for pete’s sake. You might be surprised. A little bit of community support goes a long way to convince him. Sometimes we're diametrically opposed. I'm fairly certain we've had this conversation... VGC: What grade would ...

Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

VGC and I went snowboarding today. No, not on the godforsaken Thrustmaster he busts out once a year and forces us to roll our ankles on (https://videogamecritic.com/extras/reviews/thrustmaster.htm), but hitting the actual slopes with real live snow. Anyways, this leaves plenty of time on the lifts t...
