Gaming can be an incredible medium for storytelling. Interactivity means that a video game can tell stories in ways that other media simply can’t; they can make us inhabit a character intimately and personally, feeling every action they take and every decision they make with a connection that non-interactive media can’t give us.  As you’d imagine, there are many games out there that take advantage of this incredible potential, so let’s take a look at the 20 best story-driven games to play right now. 1. Final Fantasy VII Many Final Fantasy games have come and gone since the seventh…

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island We’re going to try to limit ourselves to one game per franchise…

For many months now, speculation has swirled regarding when Nintendo is planning to announce its Switch successor. Many say that the current console is underpowered, pointing to games like Pokemon Scarlet and Violet as evidence that the Switch simply doesn’t have the technical prowess to keep up with graphical and performance advances.  If you ask us, though, the Switch still has plenty of life left in it; the console is perfectly capable of playing most indie games, and it can run Nintendo’s own first-party endeavours just fine, too. Here are the best Nintendo Switch games arriving in April 2023. …

There was a time when anything free in the world of gaming would have been regarded with suspicion. If a game was free, it was either a demo, a shareware product, or too good to be true.

With that in mind, you’ve got a lot of options if you want to game without spending any money these days. Here are the 20 best free-to-play games available online right now. 1.

Rest in peace, Kinect: we hardly knew ye. The Kinect was originally introduced in 2010 as an additional accessory for Microsoft’s hugely popular Xbox 360, bringing motion and voice control to the console. A lack of killer apps for the peripheral, as well as some strange missteps on Microsoft’s part when it came to the Xbox One, led to Kinect’s pretty much complete failure, but that doesn’t mean there were no decent games for it. Here are the 25 best Xbox 360 Kinect games you can play. 1. Dead Space 3 In retrospect, Dead Space 3 wasn’t a great game…

Real-time tactics is a rather curious genre. It essentially takes the basic idea of real-time strategy gameplay – ordering units around a reactive map – and removes resource management and base-building, instead choosing to focus on a highly specific set of specialised units with their own special powers and abilities. Into this storied genre have come excellent games like Desperados, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, and Commandos, and now, developer Mercat Games is throwing its own tricorn hat into the ring with Frigato: Shadows of the Caribbean. In essence, this is a real-time tactics game with a strong emphasis…

Still, here are 12 of the best firefighter games out there so you can indulge your fantasy of becoming a celebrated firefighting master. Disclaimer: it may be…

Sometimes, just playing games with a standard touchscreen on your phone isn’t enough. While many mobile games are designed with touch controls in mind, there’s no replacing the reassuring and weighty feel of a controller in your hands, and that’s where controllers designed for smartphones come in. Many of them, though, are poorly-designed or flimsy, so you want to make sure you’re buying a controller with great construction quality. The Nacon MG-X Pro fits that bill, so here are 10 reasons we love it. 1. The compatibility First, it’s important to note that Nacon’s MG-X Pro controller will work…

If you’re an Xbox Series fan, you may or may not have kept up with the debate regarding developing for the less-powerful Series S. The console is, according to developers, making development on Microsoft’s ecosystem difficult; devs say they don’t want the Series S to be an additional requirement if they’re making next-gen games for the flagship Series X.  Despite this, Microsoft has shown no indication that it’s dropping support for Series S or introducing Series X-exclusive games, so if you’re one of the lucky owners of the adorable little white box, you’re safe for now. March 2023 is shaping…

Rumour has it that the beloved Nintendo Switch may not be long for this world. Since the Switch performance of games like Pokemon Scarlet and Violet was less than desirable, some have murmured that Nintendo may soon be about to introduce a new piece of hardware that’s more powerful.  This would make sense; Nintendo hardware is often bookended by Zelda games, as was the case with Wind Waker and Twilight Princess on GameCube, and a new Zelda game is just around the corner. Still, in the meantime, the Switch is going strong, and March is bringing plenty of games to…

When you sit down to play video games, how long would you say your average session is? An hour? A few hours? How close do you think you are to the average number of hours played in a typical session by most gamers? Of course, it’s difficult to state with certainty what the “average gamer” or “average session” looks like; some sessions can go on for hours, but you might only have time for a quick 10- or 15-minute session at other times.

If you’re serious about your gaming experience, then you might be thinking of upgrading to something with some real firepower behind it.

The year is 1994, and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System is sitting pretty as the console of choice for the discerning gamer. Things are about to change, though; the 3D era is fast approaching, and before long, the SNES’ 2D pixel art will look positively ancient (although it will quickly reappear as fashionable nostalgia).

Let’s take a look at exactly what Xbox Live Gold is and whether it’s worth subscribing to it in 2023! What exactly is Xbox Live Gold? Xbox Live Gold is…
