Top 7 games that make you feel like geniuses
Who says too much gaming will dumb you down? These brain-bending experiences prove otherwise


Killzone 3 Super Review 
More than just a pretty, red-eyed face


Bill O'Reilly says Mars has no moons... then where does Doom take place???
C'mon. Where does it take place? Where does it take place?

What game made you feel like a genius?
As Charlie Bearhat expounded in this week’s Top 7, certain games have a way of bringing out the best of your brain. After all, not everything is about high scoring, eye-fellating visuals, and massacring the competition. We’d like you to share the games that surprised you with the feeling of being a mental giant and/or somehow offered you the rare reward of subtly completing something you once might’ve perceived as beyond your capabilities. Any genre will do, lollipops! Let us know in the forums and we may read your response LIVE on TalkRadar 138!

While we threatened to do it later, we accidentally jumped the gun a bit and almost the entire internet changed its profile pic to dear old @Brelston for a good ninety minutes, which is what batman5273 is referencing above.

    I was listening to flpslappers 1st podcast and started missing Dan alot. I miss all the great guest talkradarsers. Also, I really like Tyler drunk. And the other Tyler (he is the first in my heart) defending pc games from Antista (I like his jokes as well. The same goes for THE hank, but in a different way.) You guys rock! Let tyler drink more!
  • gidget - February 9, 2011 5:04 a.m.

    Love T-dar....Mario sport mix isn't so bad either..
  • CanadianBeaverHunter - February 7, 2011 10:18 p.m.

    Yum, ear candy.
  • Kingofthewoodlandrealm - February 7, 2011 12:42 p.m.

    I demand Micheal Grimm come and see me in Ireland. Im free all week! I'm expecting a call! I can meet him at the wedding if i must.
  • kingsmikefan - February 7, 2011 7:23 a.m.

    I'm a north american resident. I like free shit. Perfect fit.
  • SlightlyBetterName - February 7, 2011 3:40 a.m.

    That was the drunkest I've heard them in a while in the last segment.
  • elpurplemonkey - February 7, 2011 2:39 a.m.

    Great as always, can't get enough of that Laser Time!
  • obsidianchao - February 6, 2011 10:17 p.m.

    I MADE THE PANO. I love you all.
  • batmanboy11 - February 6, 2011 3:23 a.m.

    Good cast. Long live TDar!
  • NightCrawler_358 - February 6, 2011 3:21 a.m.

    'Dar date: 1... 3-7... another... great podcast!
  • JollyGreenMyth - February 6, 2011 3:18 a.m.

    Another great episode. Thanks for all the work you all put into Talk Radar every week.
  • KaiokenKid - February 6, 2011 2:05 a.m.

    Am I the only one that listens to each TDAR multiple times during the week after it came out?
  • mikeydo00 - February 5, 2011 11:16 p.m.

    I want this so hard
  • LaffPiranha - February 5, 2011 9:17 p.m.

    I like, a LOT (especially the one Chris is donning in the photo). I only have one question and this one goes out to Mr. Antista: Do YOU come with the car? Phenomenal podcast as always.
  • CH3BURASHKA - February 5, 2011 9:12 p.m.

    I, too, want a homosexual garment similar to Antista's. I've been behind on my Talkradar listening, and it's frankly scaring the shit out of me. This is how I dropped most of my other podcasts - I'd love it at first, listen religiously when it went up, then begin to delay my listening times, then stop listening, and then finally admit to myself I never listen to it and unsubscribe the feed. I'm at the delay stage right now - The last three podcasts reached my ears on the eve of the new one. I gotta set myself straight, get my priorities in line. Fuck school, the new Talkradar is here!
  • Spybreak8 - February 5, 2011 8:47 p.m.

    Epic Win, listened last night, I think I'll listen again tonight!
  • DevilDoor - February 5, 2011 8:03 p.m.

    pure awesome
  • Sargasm - February 5, 2011 7:47 p.m.

    You keep using that word... I do not think it means what you think it means.
  • conchking - February 5, 2011 6:33 p.m.

    I would totally like to win
  • GamesRadarLizzieCuevas - February 5, 2011 6:32 p.m.

    Two things: 1. Chris, I hate you. 2. If you still haven't seen the #iambrelston video, here it is on YouTube!
