What do your the kids in your life think of these games?

This is a topic right down my alley. I have two boys, the older just turned 14, the younger is 6. My older son loves the classic video game. He's a huge fan of Galaga, and he really enjoys playing the INTV, the SNES, and the 64. He's been playing Mario 64 a lot, and through youtube has found a ton o...

Should review scores be abolished?

Reviews need to be clear, concise, and informative, with a clear review score. Like this one:

Should review scores be abolished?

[QUOTE=Oltobaz]Short answer, no. Why would you like to abolish a system other people find useful? Let it be.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />I'm with Monsieur Oltaboz. If I'm going to shell out 60 bucks for a game, I want to make sure that the game gets good reviews (unless of course, it's a game that I plan on ...

Question about early systems...

I remember playing my LED Mattel Football handheld for hours. I don't know how my mom didn't smash that game with a hammer because of the annoying sound effect. <br /><br />Then I played the 2600 for hours and hours on end. And I didn't really swap cartridges out; I would play the same game for at l...

2014/9/19: Playstation 3: Diablo III

[QUOTE=Marriott_Guy]The Ultimate Evil Edition is excellent.  I picked this up for the Xbox One a few weeks ago and the upgrades/extras are well worth the investment.  You can even import your existing player from the vanilla version (PS3 or Xbox 360) into this new upgrade.[/QUOTE]<br /><br...

Favorite Review from this site?

I know I've stated this several times before, but your 2 Swordquest reviews for the Atari 2600 always stick out. I had never played either Swordquest game when I was a kid, but I read about them in my video game magazines. Atari gave away a <strong><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http:/...

Destiny the video game event of a generation.

Yeah, the reviews this game is getting is disappointing. I was planning on picking this up, but I think I'll steer clear.<br /><br /> A friend of mine did say that the main developer of Destiny stated that the initial reviews for the game would not be great because it would take a month to truly app...

Intellivision Flashback coming 10/01/14

Txsizzler, thanks for the list of games. Yeah, no doubt I'll be getting this. And an eclectic group of games, some I've never played before, such as: Spiker: Super Pro Volleyball, Stadium Mud Buggies, Super Pro Decathlon, Tower of Doom, Thunder Castle, Thin Ice, and Frog Bog.<br /><br />Total bummer...

Intellivision Flashback coming 10/01/14

I think I'll pick this up. I have the original INTV with a bunch of games, but I don't have any old TV to play them on. It would be fun to have my two sons (13 and 6) see the games I used to play. And it seems like this console will have Shark! Shark! which is worth the price of admission. <br /><br...
