Why I Love Playing The Last of Us on the Hardest Difficulty

RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
By KevinS

Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

1up And EGM Switch To Letter Grades

Posted on Thursday, February 28 @ 23:03:23 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
A few weeks ago, Ziff Davis announced that all their publications would switch to using letter grades. 1up's conversions, at least, have left them with some very strange A+ choices.

As you know, GR has never given an A+ to a game. Even our A's are very rare. It's not that it's impossible to get an A+, it's just very, very difficult. There is a developer out there who can do it one day, we just know it.

However, 1up isn't so picky it seems. They've got a positive flood of A's and some odd ultimate winners. You cannot sort by grade yet with their new format, but browsing through some categories comes up with A+'s for:

Poker Smash, Virtua Fighter 5, Sly 2: Band of Thieves, Orange Box, Halo 3, Bioshock, Fire Pro Wrestling Returns, Gears of War, Kingdom Hearts 2, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Metal Gear Solid 3, NASCAR 2005: Chase for the Cup, Project Gotham Racing 3, Bully, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, Guitar Hero, Resident Evil 4, SOCOM 3, Burnout Revenge, God of War, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, FIFA Soccer 2005, Need for Speed Underground 2, Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal...

I'm not even halfway through the PS2 reviews...

Don't get me wrong, that's a list of some pretty good games, but are they really all an A+? Okami is better than half of those games (and "only" got an A).

Speaking of A's, perhaps even funnier are some of the embarrassing A's, because they've given out seemingly hundreds of them. King Kong, an A. Really? I bet the author doesn't regret that at all.
