Ten games I wish I’d never bought - Part 2: Original IPs
Posted by: Daryll Marsh | 17 June 2017

Now that I’ve exorcised the demons of bad licenced games I’ve invested in, it’s time to do the same with some of the truly rotten original IPs. Again I’ve based the list on games that I’ve personally paid for, rather than those that were bought for me by loved ones. As you’ll see, just because an idea is original, it doesn’t mean it’s good.

Everyone has their gaming regrets, and I’ve certainly had my fair share over the years. So I thought I’d share some of the turkeys that I’ve wasted hard earned cash on. Games that I tried to love, but were completely and utterly unplayable. Now, I wanted to give an unbiased cross-section of games, so I’ve divided my top ten into licenced games and original IPs.

Without further ado, here are the worst five licensed games that I’ve had the displeasure of playing:

Yes, Video Games are Actually Good For You
Posted by: Glacier Gaming | 23 November 2015

For many years, the merits of video games have been debated. While most people probably just play them for fun, some folks always have to quantify and analyse everything. Do video games make you smarter? Can they make you dumber? Do they encourage violence? While the answers have varied widely, new evidence may finally be able to put these issues to rest once and for all.
