Film and television quotes are so entangled with our language that their origins have become irrelevant to most speakers. We use Seinfeld-popularized neologisms and phrases constantly without considering who popularized them (“shrinkage,” “yadda yadda yadda,” “close-talker,” “not that there's anything wrong with that”). But games are a younger medium, and for a time were thought to be the...
New York City is one of the most recognizable and revered cities in the world. It’s no surprise then that it’s been portrayed in videogames ever since programmers realized that electronic computation boxes could transmit graphicals on their cathode readouts. We hope you’ll enjoy this comprehensive collection of digital New Yorks, cultivated with the utmost love and respect for The City that Never Sleeps.
3D games, as a rule, don’t age well. The games of the last couple console generations might have been awesome for their time, but take a look at them now and it’s hard to see them as anything other than jaggy abortions in which cardboard rectangles masquerade as limbs.

Which console grabbed you and gave you the biggest, warmest electrical hug of them all? (PC is also acceptable, but tell us about the specific machine!) Why is it your favorite? How did you get it? Did you have to mow lawns, beg your parents? What games or features did you obsess over?

Comment etiquette dictates that the first commenter must tack the word “first” to the beginning or the end of any comment they make.
How this works: We randomly collected together 100 recent examples of video game box-art all completely unrelated with the exception of one common factor: they all featured a person or people as part of the design. We then looked long and hard at all the examples to find out what types of people are most commonly used on video game box-art. And by extension, we guess, in video games. This is what we discovered. Prepare to be partially amazed
Although most guys know Hollywood uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer for summer action flicks like Top Gun, The Rock, Con Air and Armageddon, Van Toffler, president of MTV Networks Music & Logo Group, would love for Bruckheimer to take MTV Games out of its comfort zone of rhythmic gaming like The Beatles: Rock Band and attract more females.
