"Had to be me. Someone else might have gotten it wrong."
Mikey walked slowly down the hall of the old church he was in, the dust swirling around in the fading light like a small sandstorm. He paused at a window, watching as the lady he met on the way in backed out of her spot in the parking lot. He observed her as she pulled away, no doubt eager to get home after a late night at work.
10 Games That Changed The Industry Forever
I would never presume to speak for the entire industry, but, objectively, some games have had more of an effect on our gaming experiences than others. Some games transcend their internal worlds, and become something more. Some titles make themselves known through the influence they have on other games, and these 10 games epitomize that idea. I realize there is a 95% chance your favorite game isn’t on this list, but this is my own (very opinionated) take on the question.
The 10 Food Groups For Gamers
Gamers are a special breed, the true peak of human perfection. We can’t just live off of the food that most of the world lives on; we have our own needs. For handy reference, and the general health of the gaming community, I put together this handy PSA to make sure you’re getting the gaming nutrients you need.
The Harder Road
What difficulty do you like to play on? Some people prefer Easy. It usually removes some of the challenge, so less skilled gamers or people who are only interested in the story can see the game through. Others like to crank the challenge to Insane or Nightmare or I’ll Never F**king Beat This. The allure of completely dominating a game (or its achievement list) is a huge draw for many gamers, and some simply like the challenge. Many people probably don’t even mess with it, and just stick with the default.
The Top 10 Love Triangles In Gaming
10. Batman, Oracle, Talia al-Ghul (Batman: Arkham City): Batman is one lucky dude. Sure, there's the old "parents brutally murdered in front of him as a kid" thing. I'll give him that. But since then? He's super rich, a famous playboy, gets to fight crime and use the fanciest gadgets known to man. He also gets a super sexy literal cat burglar and a super hot ultra assassin fighting over him. You know what, I take it back. He's a grown man who dresses like a bat, he's got obvious issues.

The Life and Death of Theodore Mims
The morning began like any other, boring and dull, just like Theodore himself. His routine was set in stone. He awoke to the same monotone beeping of his alarm clock, brushed his teeth to the same two-minute timer, and ate the same breakfast (One fried egg and two pieces of toast, one with butter and one with mixed fruit jelly.).
The Black Song
April 14 Laura and I got into a fight today. Got a little heated, which sucks because things have been really good lately. Or so I thought. She got mad because I don’t want to go to her mother’s place this weekend. Four hour drive just to hear backhanded insults and sleep in a shitty bed, no thanks. Laura said I could use the time to “engage” with Sean, whatever the hell that means. I just walked away, hopefully she’ll cool off up there. I guess I got the whole weekend to myself. What should I do?
