source Rockstar Games Last month, like nearly every month before it, “Grand Theft Auto 5” was on the top 20 list of best-selling video games in the United States. It appeared in third place, below “Mario Tennis Aces” and “God of War,” and above “The Crew 2” – a trio of games that came out in 2018. “Grand Theft Auto 5” didn’t come out in 2018, though: It came out in September 2013. Next month, “GTA 5” turns five. For most games, that amount of time would make it a distant memory. Instead, in a twist befitting a game centered on heists, “Grand Theft Auto 5” is on the verge of crossing 100 million units sold. “Grand Theft Auto 5” has made somewhere in the neighborhood of $6 billion according to one report. “What can I say? We’re extraordinarily grateful to our colleagues at Rockstar Games for this incredible creative achievement, and to the … [Read more...] about One of the best-selling games of 2018 is nearly five years old — and the makers say ‘there’s plenty more content to come’

source YouTube/Marvel Entertainment If you enjoyed Spider-Man’s role in the new blockbuster film “Avengers Infinity War,” there’s good news: Spider-Man has a new video game coming out later this year for the PlayStation 4, and you can even unlock Spidey’s “Infinity War” costume in the game. It’s a great little tie-in across Marvel’s films, comic books, and video games, of a kind that fans would love to see more of. Of course, there have been plenty of Marvel games before, but only the upcoming “Spider-Man” game looks like a suitably modern and fitting tribute to the character as we know and love him today. This got us thinking: What if Marvel Games, currently a subsidiary of Marvel Entertainment, could do for video games what Marvel Studios did for film? Here are 14 other Marvel Cinematic Universe characters besides Spider-Man that deserve their own modern video game treatments: Thor, … [Read more...] about Marvel should do for games what it did for movies — here are 14 superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that deserve their own video games
Here it is, New Year’s Eve, and I have exhausted all of my other list opportunities. Now it’s time to consider the best games of the decade. I procrastinated on this one because it wasn’t easy to do. But then I started seeing all of the other best of the decade lists being posted. I disagreed with them, and the annoyance built up so that it overflowed and I felt compelled to retaliate with my own list. So here’s my favorite games of the past 10 years and my reasons for liking them so much. Please leave your own comments if you agree or disagree, and pick your favorite game in the poll at the end. I’m grateful that a lot of these games were fairly recent, meaning that the game industry just keeps getting better and better. Please enjoy and thanks so much for reading in 2009! Halo: Combat Evolved (2001, Bungie, Xbox). I am a believer in the cult of Master Chief. Don’t laugh at me. There are about 30 million of us. This game showed you could do a … [Read more...] about These are the ten best video games of the decade, dammit!
100. Hotline Miami (2012) Platform: Microsoft WindowsHotline Miami is violent—really violent—but in a way that makes it ooze atmosphere: pulsing neon, pumping electronica, and blood splattered on the walls, and the floor, and you. You play as a thug fighting his way through room after room of men with guns and knives and every other murder-tool you can think of. You're not timed, but you must move quickl, because every room you enter requires mowing down enemies in a matter of seconds — lest the hail of bullets leaves you as the one splayed on the ground.

TowerFall (2013) Platform: OuyaOne of the only games to make buying an Ouya worthwhile (at least until it came to Steam and PS4 in 2014), TowerFall proved that multiplayer gaming could thrive on the couch, not just online. Inspired more by Super Smash Brothers than Street Fighter, this 2D arena fighter takes fighting games and … [Read more...] about The 100 Greatest Video Games of All Time
Skateboards, snowboards, BMX bikes, half pipes, steep slopes, mad gaps, punk. These were some of the ingredients chosen by video game developers in the late '90s to mid 2000s to create awesome virtual experiences based on our favorite extreme — excuse me, XTREME — sports, and we couldn't have enough.Chaining endless combos in THPS 2, busting crazy, over-the-top tricks in SSX, or racing friends down the slopes in 1080 Snowboarding – that was the heyday of extreme sports games. Things have changed since, quite a bit.The genre rose to prominence with quality titles like the Tony Hawk games, 1080 Snowboarding, Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX, the SSX series, and Jet Set Radio, among others, but the market soon became oversaturated with pale copies, shameless cash grabs, and simply mediocre offerings that failed to excite.A couple of dark years followed, that saw the genre slip into stagnation. The negative trend was broken in 2007 with the release of the first Skate title for … [Read more...] about The best extreme sports games for Android and iOS
