Re: Favorite Fake Review?

I was going to say Halo for the 2600, but recently I discovered it was a real game (I saw it at a game convention). The beginning lines of the review make it sound like a fake review: "ingeniously translates the classic Xbox first-person shooter into a riveting 2D experience." I can't beli...

Re: Genesis Hard Drivin'

A D- seems about right. Playing it today, with the slow framerate, is war on the mind.

Re: My declining interest in modern video games.

I appreciate all the attention my little article has generated. It seems I am not the only one who feels this way about video games. Although I am assuming that most of you who share my sentiments are likely late thirties up to mid forties? I am 45. I'm 43. For me it started with the 2600. I then k...

Re: My declining interest in modern video games.

Welcome to the forums. What you are saying is understandable, and I often feel the same. Time becomes more important the older I get, so it's hard to justify playing for long periods of time. The newer games can take a long time to learn, and even longer to complete. Besides, if every adult played v...

Re: No quality control

Critic, I think you have become so scorned about "online" that you are connecting dots that aren't there. We have had TV programming "as a service" (Netflix, Hulu, etc.), but the quality hasn't suffered. Have you seen Stranger Things? Modern games have bugs because they are compl...

Re: Game/Movie collection tracking app?

Good topic. I collect for EVERY system. I have tried many, many dedicated apps, but I found them all very slow to use; both in logging my collection, and in using it to search my collection at the game store. What finally worked was Excel. I just make a spreadsheet of games I already have/seek (1 ta...
