G4 TV’s Top 100 Games of All Time

So G4 recently came out with their Top 100 Games list. I don’t really know why people feel the need to make these lists. These lists are completely subjective and everyone uses different criteria. Some lists look at the most influential, most fun in their day, most fun to play even now, or some strange combination of the three. However, no matter what method they use, its going to spark tons of arguments.

Reading the comments on some of these entries was hilarious, with people saying G4 as lost credibility and that they are never going to view the site again. Those people need to grow up and realize that no two people are going to make the same list. Hell, some of my favorite games (such as System Shock 2 and Tribes) didn’t even make the cut. Still, here are some of my personal favorites that I was happy to see make the list:


Natural Selection 2 – Docking Map Revealed

The team over at Unknown Worlds have released a nice video showing off the next map to hit the beta. The new map is called Docking, and it looks very interesting. Docking utilizes an art set that has not yet been seen in NS2 maps, giving it a distinctive style compared to the other industrial looking maps.

Prometheus Out Today

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus film came out today. Everyone make sure you go see it.

Nintendo E3 Press Conference 2012

Highlights include… well nothing really. Maybe Lego City Undercover? Otherwise it was just tacked on touch screen controls in games like Batman Arkham City & ZombiU, a demo reel for upcoming games including software already out on other platforms such as Mass Effect 3 and Ninja Gaiden, and more boring Nintendo novelties like Wii Fit 2. Its basically more of the same non-core stuff that made me not care at all about the Wii in the first place. Only the hardware is now good enough to run current generation console games and has a touch screen on the controller so you can play Scribblenauts.

Of course there were also new Mario and Pikmin games. I guess that’s a positive if you are not sick to death of side scrolling Mario games after nearly 30 years. No Zelda or Metroid games.

So Nintendo has finally caught up with 8 year old hardware just in time to get stomped out again next year when new consoles come out. The sad thing is I have no doubt this will work out well for them. I expect strong sales.

Sony E3 Press Conference 2012

Highlights include The Last of Us, God of War, some mobile stuff I don’t care about, and a so-bad-its-funny Wonderbook presentation.
