It’s that time again and we’re heading into the second week of December with an exciting feature we’re sure you’ll love. Yes, we know it’s an oldie, but oh is it a goodie. Maybe the best open-world PC game ever? You read and decide for yourself.  What is this week’s spotlight? Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  Released in 2015 by CD Projekt Red, Witcher 3: Wild Hunt soon became one of the highest-rated PC games (10/10) according to Steam and we seriously can’t argue with that. We’d be remiss not to mention that it also won Game of the Year and…

Every video lover must have noticed the slow progression of video games in 2019. While this might seem a little bit of concern, it might interest you to know that something great still came out of this dearth. There are more than enough fun games on gamesgames.com, including new releases this year that you should jump on.  Below is a list of some of the best fun games that rocked 2019 that you should not miss out on: 1. Apex Legends This game was released in February and has since been one of the most played games this year. Apex…

In the history of gaming, racing games have been consistent since the first video game was released in 1974. However, it has improved over the years and happens to be the favorite genre of many video game lovers, whether as a novice or a professional gamer.  Selecting the best racing games isn’t an easy fit as it involves a lot, including the graphical content, sound, and virtual reality, like some of the car games on agame.com. The best racing game feels just right and keeps you glued longer than you expect while you have a great experience. Below are some…

After lots of nail-biting and brain blanking, it’s been decided that the Game of the Week should go to none other than the up and coming contender for top battle royale game; Apex Legends. No collective groan from the audience? We didn’t think so.  This mildly infuriating, team-oriented BR game hit the charts on launch in February with a peak 25 million players. While that figure has died down considerably, from the mouth of EA, they still bring in an average of 8-10 million per week, that figure obviously includes me.  Best features: Teamplay, unique weapons, ping system, character classes,…

Military strategy is a pretty popular genre, and for obvious reasons. The appeal of watching troops execute a perfectly-planned strategy and take down their enemy with ruthless efficiency isn’t one that needs to be explained. Nevertheless, this crowded genre has hundreds of games, some better than others. Here are the top 20 military strategy games you can play in 2019. BattleTech (PC) While BattleTech doesn’t technically feature the real-life military, it does revolve around a group of mercenaries piloting mechs, so it is military in spirit. The strategy in BattleTech is deep, complex, and interwoven; every system interlocks perfectly, and…

Nintendo is absolutely killing it in the gaming industry right now. The on-again-off-again pattern of the company’s console releases means each console is alternately successful and a disappointment. The N64 did great business, but the GameCube was underwhelming. The Wii put Nintendo back on track, but the Wii U was a disaster. Now we’ve got the Switch, a great idea with excellent execution that fills a niche we didn’t know we needed to be filled until it was. It stands to reason that a console like the Switch would be absolutely rammed with great games. There are, of course, some…

It’s finally getting colder. Temperatures are dropping, the leaves are falling from the trees, and the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back on sale. It’s almost time for Halloween. Almost. But if you just can’t wait for the spooky season to kick in, how about playing some terrifying video games to tide you over? We’ve compiled a list of some of the best around and some of the more obscure titles you might want to check out if you’re in the mood for a scare! In no particular order, here are our top 20 horror games. 1. Silent Hill Often regarded…

Gamescom 2019 is finally over, and we’ve had some time to sit and think about everything we saw. It’s been a few days since the show ended, and since its conclusion, we’ve been mulling over what we thought were the best bits. It was a pretty epic show this year, and many of the major video game companies had enviable showings. Still, crown winners we must. Here are the most impressive games we saw at Gamescom 2019. Marvel’s Avengers If you said to us “live-service version of The Avengers with loot and progression systems”, we’d have wondered if it could…

Whether you’re making your getaway in single-player mode or in GTA Online, the importance of a fast car in Grand Theft Auto V can’t be overstated. Speeding through the streets of Los Santos becomes all the more satisfying when you’re doing it in a vehicle that’s been designed to reach dizzying speeds, as any GTA race fan can attest. With that in mind, then, you’ll probably be looking for the fastest cars GTA V and GTA Online can muster, and it likely won’t surprise you to learn that there’s a ton of choice when it comes to speed demons. Let’s…

Those who were a fan of the movie series, which began back in 1980, are sure to have garnered excitement when hearing about this title. I was one of those fans. However, it is fairly common knowledge within the gaming community that movie-tie in games are rarely successful. With that said, could Friday the 13th: The Game buck this trend? Continue to read on to find out. Once the game was installed on my PS4, I attempted to join an online game. Sadly, the servers were down, a real issue that many have experienced within the first week or so of…

When it comes to first-person-shooters, Activision’s Call of Duty franchise has attracted a huge following. With the first release arriving in 2003, the series has continued to progress gradually, partly thanks to innovative features of which were often introduced on an annual basis. However, the approach to forwarding a futuristic era setting has come under fire from many veterans. We don’t need to look towards EA’s Battlefield 1 masterpiece to realise that a return to a previous setting would be highly welcomed. Here we delve into an article that explores why Call of Duty WW2 will be hugely appreciated and…

Great business simulation games are in short supply and there is always a long wait before a great title releases. Whilst this genre doesn’t entertain the same following as that of the mainstream options, the audience is still large and growing. Chris Sawyer is the person we should look to when thinking about business simulation within the world of gaming. After all, he is the creator behind some of the best titles, these include Rollercoaster Tycoon and Transport Tycoon. A recent gem, Planet Coaster, is close to perfect, but what could make it even better? This article explores. Weather Effects…

Once upon a time you’d have probably looked to Apple for striking innovations within the smartphone market. Each new announcement was filled with new ideas, features and excitement. However, since Steve Jobs passed, we’ve seen a lacklustre approach from the US. tech giant. Perhaps as Apple’s logo suggests, there was always going to be a competitor who wanted a bite from what was once a brand who dominated the smartphone and tablet market. I’m not afraid to admit that previously I was fond of Apple’s iPhone and iPad brand. I’d take one look at the competition and quickly see that…

I’m not sure about you, but there isn’t nearly enough World War 2 themed games available, and it is always refreshing to return to this very theme. Thus, If sneaking around a map, planning and preparing the perfect executions, one by one, sounds like your type of game, then Sniper Elite 4 might just be for you. Of course, as the name suggests, your main weapon of choice is a sniper, allowing you to zone in on enemies well into the distance. However, you also have access to an arsenal of other goodies, such as a machine gun, revolver, TNT,…

Amazing, isn’t it? We have two long-standing console players left within the home-console market, they being Nintendo and PlayStation. How history can pass us by with a flick of an eye. After all, we have seen SEGA fall victim, showing how a few bad decisions can really mean “Game Over” for a console manufacture. This article looks over which direction the Nintendo Switch could take. Let’s begin. It’s now Nintendo’s turn to risk entering a market that is rather uncertain – certainly risky, and it could quite be make or break for the juggernaut Japanese based company. If it could…

He’s the fictional British agent that everybody knows about, delivering the famous phrase; the name is Bond, James Bond. The first film, Dr. No, released back in 1962, and was the birth of the series. Connecting action, story, drama and music all together, there is arguably no better film series for fans of the spy genre. With that said, let’s take a look at what the latest edition, Spectre, has to offer. Playing the role of James Bond is certainly not an easy task, winning over the fans is even harder. Interestingly, Daniel Craig took the key role with the release of…

This year is quickly coming to a close, and it’s certainly been an eventful calendar full of great game releases. Furthermore, we’ve had the announcement of Nintendo’s next console, the Switch. That’s not to mention Sony’s PS4 Pro and PSVR. Microsoft’s announcement of the Scorpio was also another major highlight. Yes, it seems fair to say that this year was amazing, but we have far more to look forward to over the next 12 months. This article takes a look over some of the titles I’d like to see announced. Let’s begin. The Last of Us 2 As the PS4…

With Nintendo’s new console becoming available from March 2017, I thought it would be ideal to list some of the games I hope to see release. Whilst Sony’s PlayStation 4 has dominated the 8th-gen scene to date, it will be somewhat refreshing to see what Nintendo can actually do with their Switch. The exciting part to any console release is the games that will become available, so let’s go ahead and ponder some possible gems. Golden Eye Remastered What an absolute diamond this was for the Nintendo 64, we’ve even seen fans attempt to re-make the title in glorious HD,…

When it comes to 8th-gen gaming, it’s quite a simple picture; Sony’s PlayStation 4 has cemented itself as the obvious console of choice – a fact that is undisputed by gamers from around the world. However, the battle between Microsoft and Sony is hardly over, you could argue that it’s just beginning in one way or another; this is because the two companies are entering the 4K arena with the PS4 Pro and XBOX Scorpio. Whilst exciting, another Japanese console manufacture wanted to get involved, hence the Nintendo Switch. This article takes a look at why I’m excited. Let’s begin.…

Tycoon games aren’t exactly mainstream when considering the genre, in-fact they’re the complete opposite, however, they’re able to bring plenty of excitement to players who enjoy this type of game. With that said, it’s been sometime since we can say that a stunning franchise has set this genre on fire. I’m sure you don’t need to question which series I’m talking about either – yes, I’m referring to Rollercoaster Tycoon, which was originally developed by Chris Sawyer and released back in 1999. The real question many are asking is; will Planet Coaster be another title that looks set to deliver,…

The very word win implies a battle, yet that’s what E3 is often about. The three elite console manufactures were out to impress like never before, and what a war it wasn’t. Simply put, Sony didn’t just make an appearance, but rather, they showed a force which couldn’t be matched by either of the two competitors. Sony were on a mission to turn up and resolve a problem that has become a raised issue with the majority of 8th gen gamers. What’s this I hear you ask? Games. Whilst Sony has already impressed in this department, gamers demand far more, and this E3 event has…

With many great releases, 2015 has whizzed by leaving with us some memorable game releases. With that said, this year is set to be even bigger. This article takes a look at what will hopefully turn out to be massive titles for PC gamers. Are you ready for more entertainment, action, adventure, creativity and mayhem?

This game is for those who love to explore their creativity within the realms of a business-sim. I’m…

The business sim is a genre which is under filled and under demanded, in my opinion, and that’s why you don’t see many developers rushing out to make games based around this area. The business sim genre struck its prime within the 1990s, and then things went completely quiet, with poor to mediocre releases. However, things are about to get a lot more exciting. Creating and managing a theme park fits beautifully into the business sim genre, and we’ve seen some great past examples including, Theme Park and Rollercoaster Tycoon. If you enjoy the mixture of creating and management, then…

If you’re a fan of construction management games, then you’re sure to be pleased with the recent announcement of Planet Coaster. We’ve got Chris Sawyer to largely thank for laying down the foundations of this genre, after all, Transport Tycoon and RollerCoaster Tycoon were two games which took this genre by storm back in the 1990s. Other memorable mentions, two from EA include ThemePark and ThemePark World. However, nothing has managed to come close to the Rollercoaster Tycoon series, but is that about to change? Let’s take a look at two big upcoming offerings… Rollercoaster Tycoon World I personally think…

The 1980’s was a great era for so many reasons, however, if you were a gamer then the Sinclair ZX is what probably brought back many of those old dreams. For me, it was perhaps the SEGA MegaDrive which now brings back those nostalgic memories. However, with modern day gaming now in a place where we could never had imagined less than a decade ago, there’s something great about re-visiting the foundations of which brought about the gaming of today. We’ve got Steve Wilcox, the man behind Elite Systems, based in Lichfield, England, to thank for this re-make. The device cleverly uses modern tech, meaning you’ll…

It could be argued that the RTS genre was partly defined thanks to the C&C series, growing in popularity with every release since 1995. After all, the idea that you could resource gather, build up a base and then defend or attack the enemy was one that worked extremely well. However, the series appeared to reach its peak within the era of Westwood Studios, and ever since, things haven’t really felt the same. EA’s attempts to conquer, yes, pun intended, this series were seemingly unsuccessful. Perhaps it was the announcement of Command and Conquer: Generals 2 that had a large…

Most games stick to a familiar formula, however, there’s an ever growing number of titles that are exploring totally new concepts. Developers are starting to think outside the box thanks to the power of 8th gen. Whilst we’ve seen some amazing blockbusters announced at E3, this article takes a look at two upcoming games that don’t fit within your typical offerings, and haven’t had much attention. Dreams (PS4) This game was announced at E3 and it’s definitely very different, making it stand out from most other releases. All focus is on allowing you to use the PlayStation 4 to create…

With 8th Gen gaming just kicking off, many have already questioned whether the console era has reached its limit. With technology moving at an ever-accelerated rate, it certainly seems a valid question, after all. Can the console market keep up with these technology demands? What’s obvious is that the lifespan of 8th gen has to be reduced. Some have already deemed that the PS4 and XBOX One are to be the last consoles ever released. However, Nintendo has recently put this question into massive doubt – they’ve announced that they are working on something new. Whilst many are hoping that…

The First-person-shooter genre is one of the most popular, and we’ve become accustomed to receiving a yearly release from both the Battlefield and Call of Duty franchises. Both of these juggernaut series started out with the theme of WW2 with Battlefield 1942 and Call of Duty. One of my favourite experiences was with Call of Duty – it had everything that a good FPS should. Battlefield 1942 on the other hand, offered a free-roaming experience which was a new concept for the genre back then. Looking back, it felt as though the first-person-shooter genre was saturated with nearly every single…
