Windows 10 Review for Dummies

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

GR's Best of 2006 Awards

Racing RPG Sports Strategy Editor's Choice

You may have noticed we spend most of the year pointing out all the awful problems in crappy games. In the World of Wordcraft, our 'Slashing' and 'Burning' skills are damn near maxed out, and we're all wearing Large Epic Shoulderpads of the Unimpressed. But we aren't nearly so powerfully equipped when it comes to saying nice things.

We've been practicing with this day in mind, but our efforts have been awkward. Whisky fueled prose like "Graphics so striking you'll need one of those helmets retarded kids wear," and "This game grabs you by the balls and doesn't let go!" were just embarassing in the oh-so-bright light of sobriety.

Fortunately, the following games were so good they practically wrote (and sold) themselves. So without further ado, we'd like to name those titles and give them shiny trophies.

Welcome to GR's Best Games of 2006.

Ye Olde Rules

Since last year's awards only resulted in a couple MBs worth of hate mail, we made few tweaks to our rewards policy, most of which involved minor changes to bribery limits. Otherwise, we still give out awards as we see fit. Rather than plod through both platform and genre awards, we're sticking with genres. It makes more sense, somehow.

Awards are based on a complex formula involving a tuning fork, a keg of Miller High Life, a mysterious green substance and a dreidel. If no worthy recipients could be identified in a certain category, no awards were given. Editor's Choice awards were given to games that did not win in a particular category, but caught the eye of the GR editorial staff and just had to get something.

From soup to nuts, these games exemplify the upper echelon of video and computer gaming over the past year. Only games released during the 2006 year were eligible. Our hats off to the winners!

Travel through time, McFly, and
