Why The Best Game of 2012 Isn’t The One You Think

Around this time of year you’ll see many sites dedicated to gaming listing what they believe to be the best game of 2012, whereas most sites have chosen Far Cry 3, Mass Effect 3, Max Payne 3, Halo 4 or Black Ops 2 or any other number of games with a number in their title citing either graphical achievements or sales, I have chosen a different game, for a different reason.

Halo 4 is currently kicking so much ass on Metacritic that you’d think it was a Final Fantasy 7 reboot made by Hideo Kojima. It’s a great game, but if you look at how the Halo series has evolved, it’s just playing to stereotype that gamers have low self-esteem.

4 reasons gaming is just like a relationship.

Although the two terms rarely seem to go hand in hand, videogaming in my opinion draws a lot of parallels with starting a relationship.

Quiz! Guess the gaming character from a douchebag description.

A douchebag is a special kind of person who usually has all of the manners and likeability of a sex offender with aspergers syndrome. However while looking at some classic well loved gaming figures I noticed that, if you boil them down to a basic descriptions, they kind of sound exactly like the kind of people you’d hate at a nightclub or party.
