Not every franchise gets better with age, though. Some games get sequels that kill all their momentum, and some games slowly decline over time due to mediocrity. This list takes a look at 14 franchises that got way worse, either with a franchise-killing sequel or just a slow decline in quality over the years.
The 2015 World Championship for League of Legends is underway in Europe right now. This is the first major eSports competition I've watched at length and the differences between LoL and "conventional" sports are really striking to me.
There are some fans who are probably rage-ready right now when it comes to Fallout 4 not being the most anticipated game of 2015 (following the release of Metal Gear Solid V, of course). What is the most anticipated game of 2015? Why, it's Activision's Call of Duty.
Trends are as big a part of gaming as double-jumps and health potions. They come, they go and, sometimes, they come back again. Here’s a rundown of seven trends in gaming we’d like to see return with a quickness.
FreeStyle Games' upcoming music-rhythm game Guitar Hero Live has a lot riding on it. It's either going to really help catapult music games back into mainstream or it's going to send them back into the dark ages. One element that could determine the success of the game is how FreeStyle Games handles the DLC.
There's been a lot of Star Citizen drama this past week. A scathing report about the game and its developer was published and then followed by an equally scathing rebuttal by director Chris Roberts. In my mind, this is a natural result of the game's open development.
When we think of video game censorship, we generally think of politicians or cable news pundits complaining about violence or sexual content. However, there have been a lot of cases where games were changed or banned outright for more unusual reasons.
Nintendo has released two brand new stages for Super Smash Bros on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, along with five new Mii suits for player-created characters. The DLC for the game is available right now as a sort of surprise from Nintendo for the fans.
Loads of games series are worthy of a resurrection but, sometimes, those new takes on old favorites do more harm than good. Here's our list of the 10 reboots that we'd all be better served to simply forget.
The older I get, the more I value games that don't waste my time. I don't have patience for gamers that take 10 hours to get going anymore. I realize this is a can't-win situation for developers, because they'll get crapped on by other people if their game is less than 20 hours. Personally, though, I prefer a tight game that doesn't outstay its welcome. It provides new twists and challenges at a reasonable pace and then that's it.
After numerous delays, a few development hiccups and gamers less-than-enthused about some of the demo footage, Comcept USA has finally announced that the official release date for Mighty No. 9 has been set in stone for February 9th, 2016.
The console wars have been going on since there were more than two consoles to war with each other. Heck, the console wars isn't even limited to consoles... there's the Windows vs Linux crowd, the ATI vs Nvidia crowd and the – dare I say it – Marvel vs DC crowd. Anyway, Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer doesn't really care about all this console war nonsense.
Voice actors not receiving bonuses on the backend of games sales has been a long-running discussion within the industry and, according to the performers’ union (SAG-AFTRA), a strike may be necessary to finally bring the issue to a close.
It's a rare thing for someone as prestigious and recognized as Shigeru Miyamoto to use the official Wii U Facebook page and make a message about a game for the fans. Well, that just happened recently when Miyamoto had to explain to the general public exactly why they're delaying Star Fox Zero for the Wii U.
From additional maps and quests to super expensive pieces of horse armor, downloadable content ranges the spectrum. While DLC has generally been accepted as just another part of modern gaming, however, it's not always welcomed by the players with open arms. Sometimes, though, that additional content is well worth the added price of admission.
