Virtual children are undoubtedly worse than the real thing. Diminutive, shrill and noisy, you can’t even send them to the naughty step when they’re misbehavin’. We’re used to solving our videogame problems with violence, but due to standards of ‘good taste’, that approach isn't generally allowed with young-uns. Often voiced by high-pitched women because kids can’t act, they also tend to look…weird – like shrunken adults. Because of this, we’ve put together a list of youngsters in games whose toys we’d love to take away, but can’t.
Much like the latter missions in Red Dead Redemption, it's time to round up the cattle, or in this case guides, and wrangle them into the corral, this article. See, it's that kind of fantastic writing that gets me the respect I deserve. All joking aside, GamesRadar has put up a huge number of guides this year, and this handy article is here to highlight some of the biggest and best from 2010. If you don't see a game you're looking for here, use our search function at the top of the page to find what you want, then click the cheats or guides tab on the page.
Like flying piranha or sentient automobiles with a grudge, an apocalypse is something humanity doesn't want gate-crashing the cosmic party. Famine. Pestilence. War. Death. These are just four types of disaster commonly associated with an apocalypse and each one is guaranteed to kill the mood at any social gathering or LAN party. More catastrophically, they can also kill a significant proportion of the World's people population. Especially Death. Make no mistake - apocalypses are no fun. But would gamers be better prepared to survive one type of apocalypse over another? We find out.
Unless you're the main character, the comic relief or Lan Di, most jobs in games are monumentally shit. Oh sure, Jimmy Saves the Girl might get to shoot aliens and bed busty chicks between the hours of nine to five, but what about all the other poor schmoes that aren't lucky enough to land the limelight? They end up in dead-end positions that the average gamer will never appreciate, that's what.
We're not even talking minimum wage stuff here. More like fatal 'you probably won't survive your first day in the job' work situations. So if you see any wanted ads for Burger Shot, Willamette Mall's food court or a mystery gig selling guns to a government agent, take our advice: keep the hell looking.

December, we close out our year of coverage with our officially annual Platinum
Chalice awards, choosing our Game of the Year and doling out accolades to the
best games of the past 12 months. We won’t actually hand those out until next Friday, though; in the meantime, we’ve
decided to unplug from the collective GamesRadar hive mind and take this opportunity
to honor the games that really deserve it – which is to say, our personal
favorites of 2011...
Guaranteed 100% accurate unless wrong.
Just a few weeks ago we celebrated the very best of 2008 with our Platinum Chalice Awards.Today though, we must temper our merriment with disdain and head-sagging shame, for these are the moments that truly made our stomachs turn.
Doctors are supposed to make you well again. They're supposed to be benevolent. They're also supposed to be trained in medicine and really, really should not actively try to kill anyone. But meanwhile, in the Opposite World of video games...
Today, we’re taking a timeout to break through the fourth wall of online features about games to highlight the seven worst games set in the worlds of great games. Why? Because these minigames are a special breed of boring. We’re tired of tacked-on gambling activities, awful fictional sports, and stale satires of classic arcade hits that dwell in the bowels of some of the best games ever.
Why does this happen?
