Video Games!!!!!!

Back in May, I made this post about movies. I wanted everyone's Top 15 films in the comments.

Well, now I'd like to do that again, this time with a newer media: Video Games!

In case you don't feel like clicking the link, here are again the rules:

A) Your personal Top 15 Video Games.

B) Full titles and dates.

C) Countdown so that your number 1 is last.

D) If it's a tied franchise (like, let's say you like the Super Mario games fairly equally), pick only your most favorite one for your slot. An exception I will make is if the franchise spans several genres (i.e. Super Mario Brothers, MarioKart, MarioParty, Mario Tennis, etc.). You may also put an asterisk (*) if you'd like to indicate that this is a franchise pick.

Here is my list, to share and as an example:

15. South Park Rally (1999)
14. MarioKart Wii (2008)
13. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011)
12. Freaky Flyers (2003)
11. Skylanders: Giants (2012)*
10. Star Wars: The Old Republic (2011)
9. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992)
8. Final Fantasy IX (2000)*
7. Heroes of the Storm (2015)
6. Star Wars Racer Revenge (2002)*
5. Undertale (2015)
4. Star Wars Battlefront II (2005)
3. Pokémon SoulSilver (2009)*
2. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (2009)*
1. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm (2010)*

I want comments. I want lists. Top 15. Go!

The Tao of Jinn

(Originally Written for Jedi News)

Any Star Wars fan worth their salt knows that the Force is split into the Light and Dark Sides. However, slightly less well-known is that there is variation along another axis. In the galaxy far, far away, there are two levels of the Force (for now at least – we may or may not see more when it Awakens): The Unifying Force and The Living Force.

Seeing This Post Appear When Advertised...It Fills You With Determination!

"Hey, have you played Undertale?"

A regular at HumanKind Network's Game Day had asked me this as we were setting up some months ago.

Coming Next Week

Next week will have more posts than the last few months combined, likely followed by another dry period!

1. A rundown of Halloween Hijinks!

2. My latest Star Wars article (available now on Jedi News if you want a sneaky peek)!

3. My reactions to the trailers for Warcraft: The Beginning and WoW: Legion!

4. A sad, depressing tale of my personal life detailing why I've been away so long!

5. Reviews of what I've been doing to De-stress from the above instead of writing here!

I hope at least most of you will find most of it worth the wait. Expect the first post on Sunday, and I will ATTEMPT to make sure there's one per day through Saturday.

An Open Comment to Mainstream Media and Mainstream Geekdom

To whom it may concern,

You don't have to like every aspect of a franchise to be a fan of it.

However, if you purposefully refuse to show your Star-Wars-loving children Episodes I-III or even acknowledge their existence until your children are "old enough to properly hate it", then you are not a Star Wars fan.

You're just an asshole.

A Star Wars fan.
