    No offense but it looks like you didn't actually play a lot of games on your PS1 if Mort the Chicken is on your list of favorites. Maybe it's not as terrible as IGN would have it but I find it hard t...

    Finished 2014 by beating Ryse: Son of Rome (Not...great) and then I guess technically Solforge was my first game of 2015, but I barely messed around with that so I'm going to count Forza Horizon 2 as...
