Kratos is totally bad ass - when have you ever killed a god? And the fact that Aries ate an H-bomb for breakfast that morning really added to the effect. Except, now that Kratos is the new God of War, shouldnt we have to kill him in God of War 2? Whatever, just let us rip the eyeballs out of something and dont make us
When Battlefield 1942 first rolled off the production lines in 2002, it came as something of a revelation. Sure, we'd played shooters with vehicles before, and yeah, we'd seen games with huge, open levels; but in BF1942 it just seemed a lot more liberating, uncomplicated and, well, fun. It was, without us really knowing it, the combined-arms action-shooter we'd been waiting for.
However, as you'll know if you played the game, the popularity of the core game was soon matched and even eclipsed
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.

Funcom have been doubly blessed while working on what were calling the 360s first, proper MMORPG. Firstly, Warner Bros announced a brand new movie based on Robert E Howards mighty Cimmerian meathead, which would take away the taste of Governor Schwarzeneggers 1982 B-Movie, and make Conan a far cooler character. But even better than that, Microsoft has given them the go-ahead to adapt their PC game for the truly mighty Xbox 360, taking away the taste of being a PC-only niche title… and
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
