The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
Epic quests need epic endings, and theres not much that's more epic than a giant red thing fighting an oversized golden award trophy. The dragon trophy decimates the Vishnu-armed creature by breathing white stuff on it, and the fate of the world is put in your hands. But the games over, so good luck with
Weve compiled twenty ending videos from some of the hottest games of all time, partially so that we can trash them, but mainly to ruin the experience of earning them legitimately. If youre the type to play three-quarters of the way through a game before being distracted by something more important (like what?), nows your chance to see what you missed, or didnt miss, by being an underachiever.

Are you the kind of inquisitive gamer that likes to try shooting everything with a virtual pulse at least once, just to see what happens? Or maybe you take some guilty pleasure in gunning down gaming's innocent bystanders? Whatever the reason, we all exercise an unnecessarily twitchy trigger finger every now and again, so in recognition of our inner, cold-hearted killer, here's some of the victims of our 'accidental' aggression...

It wouldn't be so bad if the
When a series has 10 or so games under its belt, and more on the way, one might imagine that there arent many seasoned gamers who havent given it a go at some point in their lives. Yet, as we prepared for the newest entry in the Armored Core series – Armored Core 4 - we stumbled upon just such a gamer lurking in our midst. A curious specimen, to be sure. After some briefly probing the veracity of his claims (which totally did not involve mocking him, questioning his gamerhood, or actually
"Ahnuld" Schwarzenegger is not Conan the Barbarian. Never has been. His fighting isn't as brutal or dirty as the real Conan's. He doesn't chug as much alcohol as much as the real Conan. And with all respect to Mrs Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver, we're quite sure the Governator doesn't spend as much time banging the bed's headboard into the wall as would the real
Some games really dish out a kicking before you get any sort of pleasure from them, making you feel quite inadequate and full of self-loathing. (Thought you were good at games? Think again, you useless idiot.) So after countless hard nights of enduring your gamers ego getting beating after beating, it should be comforting to know that one driving game is on its way which will (metaphorically) wipe away the tears and haul you down the bar for a couple of pick-me-ups.
Juiced 2 wants to make you
Last week, we brought you a list of popular, classic games... that we despise. But that's easy; for every work of genius, there's a hater (with good arguments.) This week, we're doing something much, much weirder. We've compiled a list of games that range from "totally sucky" to "mostly sucky" that we... well, we love them. A tough task? We agree. That's why we've roped in editors from three other top game publications - PC Gamer, Official Xbox Magazine and PSM to help us out. Hey, they're
These games are classics. They're beloved by millions. The problem? Well, they suck. Don't believe us? Keep reading. Yeah, some had their defenders - even on our staff. But a convincing argument can be made about why each game just doesn't cut it. And that's just what we'll do. Ready? Line 'em up and we'll knock 'em down...
Final Fantasy VIII

The entire catalogue of Final Fantasy games is untouchable. We get that. They're all special and unique in their
Dark Sector, the bloody and brooding third-person action-adventure headed for PS3 and Xbox 360 this autumn, features one of the coolest weapons you'll ever see. It's known as 'the glaive' - a dinner-plate-sized throwing star that can be used like a Frisbee/boomerang/shuriken hybrid. We had a chance to see first-hand what it was capable of. And boy, is it ever
Your captor walks over to the wall, casually plugging a handheld drill into an electrical outlet while he curses your name and tells you exactly why you deserve this. Before you know it, the drill is being thrust into your head, bits of blood and flesh splattering outwards as the screen shakes violently. This is the world of The Darkness – gritty, degenerate and malevolent. Its a strikingly beautiful, disturbingly intense game, a first person shooter descent into the world of mob violence
