Too old to be a Gamer?

Not a lot of people have given me a hard time about being 37 years old and still enjoying video games. But according to many on social media, it almost seems controversial to be a middle aged gamer, but the fact of the matter is, we make up a large majority of the gaming community. The average age of a gamer in today's world is around 36. So, there’s that.

Honoring a Gamer upon death

The gaming community is many things. It can be a wonderful place where like minded gamers make friends and enjoy an entire landscape of art, fun, fantasy and so on. It can also be a toxic place for online trolls that prefer to make the experience miserable for all those around them, because misery loves company and trolls are clearly miserable. Am I right?

Some of the best and worst games of 2017

2017, has been a pretty good year for gaming. While the lineup of games I have been waiting to release are taking their sweet time (ie; God of War, Days Gone, Spiderman, to name a few), there were several games on my list this year that make up for the wait. There were also several major disappointments in my book as well. Without further ado, let's go over my favorite and most disappointing games of 2017.

Video Games changed my life

At some point in time, every gamer out there receives their very first video game system. I’m not talking the first video game they have played or the system they played it on. I’m referring to the very first console that was officially their own. Whether it was a gift or personal purchase (usually a gift), it is a memory that resonates with many of us, as if it were just yesterday.

Battlefield1 Review

Battlefield1 released worldwide on Friday and it did not disappoint. For several years now, First Person Shooter fans have been asking for a war game that takes us back to an older war setting. I believe the most popular war asked for, has been World War II. It makes sense, during WWII there major advancements in technology and weapons alike. With everything invented, there's always someone out there working to improve it. Well, the same goes with video game development and DICE has gone above and beyond to improve the Battlefield series.

RIGS Mechanized Combat League PSVR Review

RIGS Mechanized Combat League is the initial entry into eSports through VR and it does it well. While we may have sometime before we see VR as a steady eSports component, RIGS shows you the impact virtual reality could have, when done correctly.

Entering the world of RIGS has the same elements of many sports titles. You have a manager, teammates, ranks and championships. Not to water down sports games, but I’m trying to keep the concept simple, rather than dissect every aspect of different sports titles.
So, simply put, RIGS has those elements listed above and then some.

Gaming since the 80's

Being a little kid in the 1980’s was a wondrous time for video games, but it wasn’t until after the market crashed that the industry really became the staple it is today. It seemed like every store I walked in, had a standup arcade or pinball machine. While a quarter per play didn’t seem like much in the moment, arcade games had a way of draining my already tiny wallet, but I enjoyed every minute of it.
