Amongst the games, press releases and bulging envelopes of cash curiously marked '9/10, yeah?' that we receive from publishers each day we also get clothing. Mainly T-shirts of random ill-fitting sizes. And they fall into three categories: Outdoors, Indoors, and Bin.
Some characters are just doomed to die in games. It seems the Nazis were born to wear sharp uniforms and chow down on your bullets like a tasty bratwurst. Cops are always destined to get blown up by your rocket launcher a day before retirement. And the sole purpose of videogame zombies is to have Piñata-style heads that explode with the slightest contact – just replace the tasty treats with festering bits of frontal
As you rebuild civilization and restore your people's faith in this sim/action hybrid, you'll find yourself honestly caring about your subjects' helpless lives.

There are two types of gamers: the ones who love explosions, and the ones who love explosions in 1080p at 60 fps. Whether you’re a fan of shooters or strategy games, 8-bit or HD, we still all share the common appreciation of a good bang (ha, you WISH!). To show our love of all things that go BOOM, we’ve collected some of videogames' most epic explosions and set them to a bangin’ soundtrack.
