The Game That "Won" Our Classic PC Games List (If It Had A Winner)

A couple of weeks ago, I headed up a massive, crowdsourced list of the best PC games of all time. This week, we added what will probably be our final update. I didn't expect that the list become as massive as it did, nor did I expect that a couple of games would emerge as clear favorites. » 9/19/13 9:00pm 9/19/13 9:00pm

I Thought This Game Was Supposed To Be Realistic. Oh Well!

One of ArmA III's biggest selling points is its realism—it's a modern combat simulation that gives players a sandbox to play out scenarios not possible in most other games. So I was certainly surprised to see this footage by Moerderhoschi785, where a player rides a drone like he was the Green Goblin or something. » 9/13/13 6:00pm 9/13/13 6:00pm

Goodbye, FarmVille 2. It's Been Fun, But I've Had Enough.

This past weekend, I took a trip out of town. I went outdoors, I sat in the sun. I drove through Northern California, past vinyards and polo fields, plots of land with a strip of earth out front for growing tomatoes and corn. I didn't really have my computer with me. » 9/25/12 4:30pm 9/25/12 4:30pm

Yes. XCOM: Enemy Unknown Is Really Good.

I've lost video game troops before. I've sent virtual men bravely to their digital deaths. In StarCraft, in Company of Heroes; in Warcraft and Civilization, I've sent heroic men and women to the front lines, never to return. Sometimes I feel a pang at an unnecessary loss, but most video game troops are just numbers to… » 9/24/12 8:00pm 9/24/12 8:00pm

Slender: The Eight Pages: Short, Crude, And One Of The Scariest Games…

Not everyone that purchases downloadable PC games does it because they prefer shopping at home. Some of them just hate discs and boxes. Maybe it's an environmental thing. Perhaps their father was killed by a DVD. Whatever the case, GameStop's in-store digital PC game purchase method is perfect for those types. » 7/28/11 2:30pm 7/28/11 2:30pm
