Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy. It's not easy but it's what you need.

The Martian and Gattaca are odd omissions from this list, especially since there are a few movies on that list that I personally wouldn't classify as sci-fi. I bring this up because I would put Gattaca as the movie to beat for the 2000's and The Martian as the movie to beat so far in the 2010's.

First thing: here's the link.

I personally have multiple nits to pick with that list, not to mention complaints against the idea of ranking the "best games of all time". With that said, no matter how hard I want to I really can't argue with their #1 choice. It's Tetris!

What does everyone think about this? Does anyone think ranking the best games of all time is even a good idea?

Pocket Card Jockey, followed by Firewatch and Stellaris. Seriously, Pocket Card Jockey is amazing and you should play it.

I've been coming to the site since the beginning and I can definitely feel where you're coming from. A lot of the new content over the last couple of years has had nothing to do with video games, such as the stuff with wrestling, F1, tabletop gaming, and movie commentary(?). If you aren't into any of that then it can be off-putting. Plus Dan really is a weird left turn for the site personality-wise.

To me, though, the main problem is that the quick looks have been declining for a while now. I didn't even realize it until Dan pushed through stuff like Metal Gear Scanlon and Mario Party Party and that stuff hit as being really fresh and interesting, when really they're just mega endurance runs. It doesn't help that Vinny and Alex have been bogged down in studio set-up hell for I don't remember how long and their QL's are the only ones that I've found interesting recently.

They are trying to figure out what the site should be and so far a lot of the answers they've come with have nothing to do with video games. That's the kind of thing that makes me nostalgic for the Whiskey Media days.

My hometown of Athens, GA was mentioned in The Walking Dead as the place where Lee taught as a professor (at my university). That's the only time I've seen my hometown mentioned in any kind of media.

I was gonna say Sins of a Solar Empire, but @Chuggsy beat me there. I'm just gonna reiterate the point because it's an awesome name.

From the headline I thought Borderlands 2 would let players throw guns at guys as a ranged melee or really heavy throwing knives. I have to say I'm really disappointed by that not being the case.
