Back in the summer of 2002, when we first had this crazy idea of starting a gaming website, we had no forward-looking vision or the expectations that we would still be around ten years later. We were just trying to build something cool in the moment and the Internet, while cool, wasn’t quite the ubiquitous force it is today. Through the years, we just kept doing our thing and, with a team of volunteers that have delivered their absolute best through passionate writing, here we are. READ MORE

In addition to Dangerous Hunts 2013, where you are the prey as much as the hunter, Activision also delivered a more traditional hunting experience, Cabela’s Hunting Expeditions.

Since the very first day I picked up an Atari joystick, video games have changed in just about every way imaginable. It’s for that reason that selecting an all-time favorite game is quite a daunting task. When I close my eyes and imagine for a moment that I am standing in front of a library of games that spans the entire history of this industry and I have to pick just one game, only one comes to mind: Super Mario Bros. 3. For many gamers that got their start when I did, this may seem like the obvious safe choice, and for some it is. For me, Super Mario Bros. 3 played such an integral role in my life as a gamer, that it’s the only choice that makes sense. READ MORE
