Here are the worst video game movies of all time

Here are the worst video game movies of all time

Independently, playing video games and watching movies are immensely enjoyable activities. But when the two mix, the result is often an exercise in disappointment. Likely rooted in Hollywood’s never-ending effort to print money without exercising an ounce of creativity, movie executives always seem keen on taking whatever video game happens to be hot at the moment and turning it into a movie. Even in the face of ridicule and a string of box office failures, we’ll likely never see Hollywood stop trying to turn popular video games into hit films.

5 games that were never finished and are now impossible to beat

Some games require a great deal of effort to complete. Whether its their length, their difficulty or their complexity, games like Dark Souls, Spelunky and Dota 2 are best known for driving players crazy as they attempt to fight their way through increasingly lopsided battles, find every potential pitfall and learn the best matchups.

But some games can’t be beat simply because the developers never finished them.

AirConsole turns your browser into a game console and your phone into a controller

AirConsole turns your browser into a game console and your phone into a controller

It’s a shame that video game consoles have grown so large that carrying them to a friend’s house no longer feels like a reasonable option. You’re not going to throw your Xbox One in a backpack the way you did with your Nintendo 64 or PS1 20 years ago, which makes local multiplayer even more obsolete than it already was.

Thankfully, with AirConsole, all you need is a computer and a smartphone — two things nearly everyone carries around — to jump into a multiplayer game.

YouTuber explores abandoned virtual world, ends up inside a creepy nightmare

Massively multiplayer online games (MMOs) are some of the most fascinating games in the industry. Unlike other games, MMOs allow hundreds or even thousands of players to explore a virtual world simultaneously, taking on the forces of evil and competing in server-wide warfare.

But the only thing more fascinating than a living, breathing MMO is one that has been abandoned for over a decade, as is the case with Active Worlds.

7 games I can’t wait to play in 2016

Although 2015 was undeniably an incredible year for games (and the biggest year yet for the new generation of consoles), I have a feeling that 2016 is going to be even better. Yes, there are bound to be countless sequels and spinoffs to the most popular gaming franchises, but there are plenty of original IP on the way as well. More →

Xbox One vs. PS4: This holiday season is Microsoft’s best shot at beating Sony

Remember back in 2012 when we were all talking about the death of the home video game console? Back when we said that mobile devices and cloud-based services would take over for archaic boxes under our televisions and the outdated discs we put inside of them? We were all very, very wrong.

German Man Knocks out Girlfriend with Sedatives so He Can Keep Playing Video Games

Plenty of male gamers get annoyed when their girlfriends or wives bug them when they play too many video games — and in the ladies’ defense, we really should know when to put down our controllers and actually interact with other human beings. That said, most of us have never been desperate enough to keep playing a game without interruption that we’d think of knocking out our significant others with sedatives. More →

Can Video Games Actually Help Overweight Gamers Lose Weight?

Can Video Games Actually Help Overweight Gamers Lose Weight?

Though often exaggerated in popular culture, the old stereotype about gamers  being overweight isn’t entirely without merit. A 2009 study, for instance, found that gamers do, in fact, tend to be on the heavier side of the scale relative to the population at large.

But might it be possible for video games to actually help gamers lose weight? Researchers at the University of Exeter believe so, as evidenced by a new study which shows that certain types of mental training can directly result in gamers consuming up to 220 fewer calories each day. Over time, that amounts to nearly two pounds of weight loss per month.
