2020 has been quite the year! Obviously, everyone is saying that. Everyone is also saying how gaming has been such a huge part of their lives since the world shut down in March. It’s kind of cliché now, to be honest. But whatever. 2020 was a fantastic year for gaming, and here are my top 10 favorite games.

Without further ado, let’s get into it!

Hi everyone!

I’ve been gone for a while from this website. Almost 2 years, in fact! I’m not sure who even follows this blog/profile/whatever anymore, and I don’t think I had much of an audience since when I started, but I’m here to give a life update!

The reason why I haven’t posted since around March/April 2019 is that I ended up actually getting some paid games writing work shortly after starting posting on here. I was picked up by the website Only Single Player as a News Writer in May 2019. It was a great starting point to learn…

You see this? EXPERT CURATION.

A week after Google entered the ring into the gaming industry with Stadia, Apple announced its own service, Apple Arcade. While these two tech giants are now competing in the gaming space, their approaches couldn’t be more different. While Google Stadia is a game streaming platform, Apple Arcade is taking a similar approach to Xbox Game Pass. It has its own dedicated tab on the App Store that users pay a subscription fee to play games through. The rise of smartphones took mobile gaming to new audiences and new heights, and Apple Arcade wants to continue that by trying to…

Introducing Google Stadia

At the 2019 Game Developers Conference, Google formally announced its entrance into the gaming space with Stadia. Unlike its competitors such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Stadia is an all digital streaming platform that uses Google’s data centers as the console rather than a dedicated hardware box. It boasted incredible technical features such as running games at 4K resolution with HDR at 60 frames per second. Other features include players being able to pull up YouTube tutorials of the exact part they’re having trouble with while they’re playing, as well as being able to instantly download and install…

The PlayStation Vita

Very recently ago Sony confirmed that production of the PlayStation Vita was ending in Japan, but its official discontinuation followed swiftly after. Polygon reported this past Saturday that the handheld system had officially ended production. It’s so sad to see Sony’s promising handheld machine phased out in such a pitiful way. Sony may have made some major missteps when it came to handling the system, but those same mistakes made me the gamer that I am today.

Growing up, I was strictly a JRPG fan. I mostly owned Nintendo systems and played Pokemon games, but I also did own a…

The three big platform holders (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft)

In the 8th generation of consoles, Sony’s PlayStation 4 is the clear leader when it comes to the video game consoles. This can be attributed to Sony’s studios pumping out critically acclaimed exclusive titles such as Horizon: Zero Dawn, God of War, and Marvel’s Spider-Man, as well as its incredible third party Japanese console support including games like Nier: Automata, Persona 5, Dragon Quest 11, and Nioh. Earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show, Sony touted that it had sold over 91 million units of the PS4. On the other side, Microsoft hasn’t revealed the number of Xbox One…
