I grew up a collector. Maybe it’s genetic. Maybe I was brainwashed, growing up in the era of Saturday morning cartoon shows, video games and pizza bribes for school work. But I liked to collect things: Baseball cards, action figures, video games, whatever.
I rely on one song to be my psych-up music before job interviews: the theme from the 2011 video game Skyrim. The only place I’ve found the right version of this song is on YouTube—the midi and orchestral arrangements just don’t cut it. But every time I’m in one of these high-stakes moments, I inevitably navigate away…
There have been a lot of great films released since the year 2000, but some of them stood above the rest and elevated the medium to a whole new level of storytelling. These are the 25 best films of the 21st century according to film critics around the globe, and where you can watch them for yourself.
The opening crawl that opens up every Star Wars film is one of cinema’s most iconic moments, and will never change, but what happens when you take the stylings of a James Bond film and give it a try? Magic.
YouTuber ICEnJAM took sound clips of the Vault-Tec representative you meet at the start of Fallout 4, and used them to cold-call strangers. The result was hilarity.
There have been hundreds of movies based on comic-books, going back to the earliest days of both media. And that cinematic flood has come with a certain amount of “holy crap, what was that” moments. Here are the 50 most shudder-inducing comic-book-movie moments... according to you. Check out our new video, created in…
It’s the ultimate debate–which great science fiction ship would triumph? The U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek, or the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars? Our fearless video crew got as many celebrities to answer as possible. And then, not surprisingly, Adam Savage basically settles it.
In today's Highlight Reel we have a Dragon Age archer that doesn't know when to quit, well-timed landings in Battlefield 4 and some soothing destruction from GTA V.
Dragoncon's got a reputation for being one of the better cons for cosplay, and this year's batch proves it. There's a few Youtube videos floating around taking some great highlights from last month's convention in Atlanta. If you're at all interested in the scene, these two videos are worth a look.
The Power Glove was the quirkiest little peripheral ever devised for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Although if found only limited use on that platform, modern day tinkers with access to cheap and simple microcontrollers can now turn these 25-year-old video game artifacts into futuristic wearables.
Ahh, the table flip. Has film brought us a better short hand for "uncontrollable anger" than the table flip? No. It has not. And while this supercut only features movies (and thus leaves out a few of the true greats of table flipping), it is still epic.
Ever read the comments on a popular YouTube video? There is no faster way to strip yourself of faith in humanity. It's a cesspool. And this is coming from someone who writes for the Gawker network.

You know what sold me on the original Prototype? Protagonist Alex Mercer leaping onto a helicopter and punching his way inside. I'm sure Prototype 2's James Heller is a compelling new hero, but what about the whirlybirds? Ah yes, here they are.
There have been so many Mega Man soundtrack reinterpretations over the years; the classic games and their sequels feature bouncy, soaring melodies that lend themselves wonderfully to performance. But still, this one stands out: it's an acoustic reinterpretation of "Splash Blue" from Mega Man 9, performed as a duet…
"When a video game can make us cry," the saying goes, "that is when we will know that games are art." But what if a video game trailer can make us cry?
The informative video series Extra Credits is back on YouTube, and in their latest episode, they take on the concept of the MMORTS—the massively multiplayer real-time strategy game. (Though at no point in the video do they refer to the genre as "Memortis," even though that is a pretty sweet name, and way easier to…
