It's funny how the games business works. Big
successes become popular franchises, we keep buying 'em because they keep
getting better, and developers keep churning 'em out. Later, we'll complain
about Call of Duty being the same stupid thing, buy it, verify our complaint,
and keep the cycle strong. What about the stuff that doesn't review well, though,
or doesn't sell, or doesn't quite live up to the hype? Those games are usually
left for dead, and an original IP hoping to make its big break becomes a
Aren't these the games we should
see sequels to? Disappointing games are the ones that need the most improving,
and are the games that'd benefit the most from a second chance. Remember,
Assassin's Creed eventually became Assassin's Creed II. We'd love to see some
of this generation's biggest bummers – even if they had a lot going for them –
take off bigger than they have...
Okay look guys, Disney's been using Wreck-It Ralph to pump video game references out like they're going out of style (they're most assuredly not). It's about time we took a good close look at just how many game characters we can spot in the clips released so far...
Every week GamesRadar receives more game trailers than the internet can be expected to hold, so in those seven days some people might tragically miss a few of these new videos. That's why we've collected them into one new video, remixed for your pleasure...
It's a huge month for warring gods, space marines, tomb raiders, and Pinkerton agents. See why you'll be spending most of March indoors in our rundown of this month's new releases...
To celebrate Independence Day (the holiday, not the movie), we’ve scoured our encyclopedic minds for the most patriotic games to be developed. But that wasn’t funny enough. So, we dug deeper to find the most rabidly patriotic games every developed. Ya know - the ones with so much love for Old Glory that it starts to get a little ridiculous. Behold - our results!

Since we enjoyed sharing our personal favorite games of 2010, we thought it was only appropriate to share the games that most let us down last year, the games that most drew our vitriolic ire. These aren't objectively the worst games of 2010 - they are the ones that most rubbed us the wrong way. There are even fantastic games on this list, but if everyone loved the same things, we wouldn't all be unique slowflakes in the great blizzard of life, now would we...
may not be Halloween just yet, but you can at least start prepping yourself
early. To help get you in the mood, we’ve brought together some of our favorite
Halloween-themed content from across the gaming spectrum in one video. Only a
few games over the years have actually taken place on the last day of October (although) some MMOs like to live it up with awesome Halloween celebrations, but plenty of gamers have picked up the slack by creating their
own custom content with mods for some of their favorite games. We’ve pulled
together some of the best of both, sotake a look and re-live some old favorites (or discover some new ones)!
Pac-Man and Mario owned the 1980s. Sonic, Lara and Snake took over for the 1990s. Their games are considered classics. Their names are timeless and iconic. Their images are burned into the memory of every gamer, even those who were born after the characters themselves.
Now we have another ten years worth of heroes, villains, sidekicks and love interests to occupy our imagination. Which, however, will remain there?

Microsoft and Sony declare blitzkrieg on your soul; Nintendo gives you a shoulder to cry on. With wetted eye we return to our most emotional Nintendo moments…
A matter of life and bemani
Ouendan's Over the Distance sequence is a mature ode to the recently deceased. Mullered in a motorcycle crash, young Ishida barters three more hours to make peace with his peeved girlfriend Ryouko - prompted by a mad cacophony of drums and cymbals, natch. If you don't cry to these
I'm sure you've felt that sense of elitism when you discover an artist or song that nobody else knows about. You might listen to it yourself in headphones and feel smug, or become *that* guy who tells everyone you meet how they have to listen to this amazing new thing. Sound familiar?
What joy then, when your favourite videogame throws up an unexpected audio treat. One's come up recently in Mario Kart 64. Someone must've left the
