Are you rich? For the low cost of roughly $5000, you can either purchase one segway (you tool) or the following 100 games that the GamesRadar staff is looking forward to most this year. Yeah, we know everyone’s got a list of games they want to see this year. But no one’s written about 100 of them!
Perhaps no other entertainment industry contains venomous fans arguing over the content of multiple versions of a solitary product. And for good reason - games are made to be ported over to multiple consoles in order to recoup staggering losses of cash. Each console has its own strengths and its own failings. That’s why we see a frame rate glitch here or a severely neutered feature there.
On the verge of collapse, with avalanches occurring almost daily, something clearly has to be done and it can’t wait until Spring Cleaning. So, since this unsightly mountain of swag was accumulated with the sole purpose of giving away to you guys, we’re holding an EVERYTHING MUST GO contest to finally divvy out what was rightfully yours anyway.
If you're reading this site, then you re probably already aware that this week saw the loss of a major institution in gaming journalism. On Tuesday, Jan. 6, Electronic Gaming Monthly - a magazine that's been synonymous with US hardcore gaming since 1989 - was shut down just shy of publishing its 20th-anniversary issue. Brought about as part of a corporate buyout, the closure of EGM and the mass layoffs at the 1UP Network have put many of our most talented colleagues out of work, and represent nothing less than the end of an era for our industry. To pay our respects and acknowledge our debt to the magazine that defined gaming culture for 20 years, we the editors of GamesRadar – along with editors from other sites and magazines – would like to say a few words.
When the New Xbox Live Experience first launched last November, we were excited to queue up our Netflix accounts with our favorite shows and movies. But lately we’ve been begging and praying for something good to be available in Netflix’s “Watch Instantly” tab, because we’ve finished every episode of 30 Rock and seen Super High Me once (you only need to see it once).
Just a few weeks ago we celebrated the very best of 2008 with our Platinum Chalice Awards.Today though, we must temper our merriment with disdain and head-sagging shame, for these are the moments that truly made our stomachs turn.
Wow, videogames and the things they spawn! The industry produces everything from comics to vibrating mushrooms. You could listen to advertising, fanboys and Big Videogame’s secret infrared mind-control to find out what’s worth your money, but you’d end up buying two of everything carried by your local Gamestop and half of Amazon.com. So how much of it is really worth paying attention to?
For as long as it's existed, the Internet has been a wretched hive of scum and villainy. The anonymity lets the world's worst people run free pretty much unchallenged and there's always someone trying to scam you – be it stealing your Facebook password or, at its most extreme, tricking you out of thousands of real-world dollars. What follows is a collection of dark tales from the terrifying world of online games.

2008 was a big year for everyone: Britney Spears made a comeback, The United States elected a new president… but of course nothing was as significant as the custom videos our site produced. Yes, we’re this self-indulgent.
