As far as I am concerned, God gave us the trackball for two reasons - to play Missile Command and Golden Tee Golf.    While I may be dating myself by talking about Missile Command, even the youngest Dads and Moms must know Golden Tee Golf.  Golden Tee Golf is the most successful arcade golf game click to continue...

Virtual Pet games for the Nintendo DS are nothing new.  Interactive electronic toys that move, beep and make sounds based on how you touch them have been around for a few years.  Wappy Dog from Activision and Sega Toys marries a virtual pet game with an interactive dog, and this is something very new.  With click to continue...

Zelda

Mention The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time to some people and prepare for a near religious dissertation about the greatest video game ever made.  Released in 1998 for the Nintendo 64, Ocarina of Time revolutionized action games and became the standard by which all other adventure games were judged. Flash forward 13 years to click to continue...
