What Are You Supposed To Say When A Girl Asks You If She’s Pretty?

Hey gentleman, have you ever been asked by a girl/woman if you think they are pretty or if they have gotten less pretty or fat or something?

If you have, and you were foolish enough to answer, then you know there is no right answer. You will always come out a horrible person after this question.

I’m not talking about girls asking you if you think they’re pretty in a flirtatious way, and from someone interested in dating you. I’m talking about friends of yours who just ask for their own self worth or however you want to phrase it.

In high school, I learned the consequences of answering these questions. I remember a time one of my best friend’s girlfriend, who I was close friends with, asked me if I thought she was pretty, (or some other version of attractive) and I, being a naturally honest person, said that yes she was. I probably would have said yes as to not hurt her feelings, but the fact was she was indeed a beautiful girl, so I said so.

And her response was that I was a creep and that she was my friends girlfriend and I shouldn’t be looking at her like that.

Okay…my bad…?????

This same girl, a few months later, asked how I thought she looked in an outfit she had worn that day. And I stupidly told her she looked hot, thinking that’s what she wanted to hear, and because frankly, she looked hot in everything. Also, I was half joking, because as I said, we were close friends, and I thought I could get away with saying this.

The result was her backing away from me, a disgusted look on her face and told me I’m not supposed to say that and that she was going to tell her boyfriend…

Okay, sorry…

Another girl asked me later on if I found her attractive. She wasn’t unattractive, but nothing head turning, and learning that saying yes is a bad idea, I said “no.” I got yelled at and I don’t think I ever talked to that person again.

Sheesh…

Another time, my sophomore year, I was in a class with my friends girlfriend, the same one who I talked about first in this post. She introduced me to a friend of hers, female, and the three of us became good friends throughout the year.

I was in between girlfriends and just had enough of women for the time being. These two were hounding on me on who I thought was hot and who I wanted to go out with, and the fact was, I didn’t want to date anyone and didn’t care who was hot or not, and that’s exactly what I told them. And of course, they both asked if I thought either of them was hot. Both of these girls were attractive, like 8/10’s, but I just shrugged my shoulders and said I didn’t care.

Well, they both got mad at me for not telling them I thought they were hot. They bickered with each other and argued with me, but I just sat there, not saying anything and only half listening. Eventually, they reconciled by saying, “Well at least he didn’t say we were ugly,” and everything was fine after that.

Effing shoot me…

Years later, when I was in my early 20’s I think, a girl I had worked with for years was sitting alone in the break room when I walked in for my lunch. We were friends, but had sort of drifted apart at this point.

Now, first a tad of background. This woman used to be absolutely gorgeous, a 10/10 if you will. We were very flirtatious when we were younger, but she always would shut me down, saying I was too young for her (she is four years older), but then a week later it would start all over again.

Eventually, as she moved into her mid 20’s, she let herself go and gained a lot of weight and just looked a mess usually. So that day, when I walked into the break room, she asked me if I thought she had gotten as fat as this other girl who worked there, who was not attractive at all.

Her exact words were along the lines of “I know I’ve gotten fat, but I don’t think I’m that fat, do you?”

I looked at her for a second and said, “I wouldn’t know anything about that and I’m not dumb enough to answer that question.”

I had wised up, you see? Or so I thought…

She got mad at me for not answering the question. She insisted that I tell her the truth, but I refused. She asked me some more questions about her and the other girl. I can’t remember what exactly, but it was something along the lines of, “well who is better looking,” and “who has the better…” I did not answer any of these questions. We hadn’t flirted in years at this point, so maybe she was trying to bring up something as to why that wasn’t so anymore, despite her having a boyfriend and I think I was engaged at the time, so duh…why would we be flirting?

Anyway, I didn’t answer any of her questions, and went to have my lunch elsewhere. She got mad, and I think that may have been the last or one of the last times I ever talked to her.

WTF!?!?!?!?

There is no winning with women! What are you supposed to do? What are you supposed to say? It’s ridiculous. This is a battle you will not win.

Does anyone else have similar experiences out there? Or ladies, what do you truly want to hear?

Richie Ramone’s “Entitled”- Reminding Us Why We Fell In Love With Punk Rock

The third drummer of the legendary punk band, the Ramones, has been touring around with his new band for quite a few years now. His first album, Entitled, which came out a while ago, is simply incredible.

Punk has changed to a very different sound, and has almost died out all together by now. But this album brings back that classic punk sound circa the 70’s/80’s. Basically, he takes what the Ramones did, modernizes it, and gives us an intense punk album…the way punk should be.

The guitar tones are excellent. The drums tight and also great sounding. He’s not a great singer, but it works with the sound, giving us even more of a blast of that great old punk sound.

And if I’m not mistaken, Richie Ramone wrote and recorded all the instruments except for the bass guitar, so that’s awesome. We know he still has it and he’s eager to remind the world why punk is such a great form of music.

If you’ve been missing the punk glory days and have been itching to hear something new that resembles it, then this is the album for you! It’s definitely worth checking out.

My Top 10 Wii U Games

Ahh…the Wii U, one of my favorite consoles of all time, and yet woefully ignored by consumers and developers alike. Some of the best games I have ever played are out on this console, and it’s hard to pick 10, but I did my best. Of the 88 games I own for the console, I have only played 69 of them. But here are the best of those ones…

 

#10

mario kart 8

Mario Kart 8

Nintendo

2014

This is one of the best in the series, with a wide array of characters, customizable carts and actually reasonably priced dlc that gives you a lot of content. I’ve played this for many, many hours. The new anti grav tracks don’t really add anything to the game, but it’s a cool idea nonetheless.

 

#9

rayman legends

Rayman Legends

Ubisoft Montpellier/ Ubisoft

2013

This is one of the best platformers I have ever played. Excellent level design, fast paced action, andjust a whole array of weird stuff going on. Tons of unlockable skins for different characters to play as, satisfying challenge. It’s just great all around.

 

#8

yoshis wooly world

Yoshi’s Wooly World

Good-Feel/ Nintendo

2015

Speaking of great platformers, this is another one. The yarn or wool world looks incredible and it’s fun how you interact with it. Finding a ton of collectables in each stage kept me playing for hours. There are so many different Yoshis to explore the incredibly clever and fun levels with and fight  the wacky bosses that fill the world.

 

#7

wonderful 101

The Wonderful 101

PlatinumGames/ Nintendo

2013

This game sadly seemed to go completely under the radar. I feel like there was no advertising at all. And this is a travesty, for it is a truly unique and excellent action game with great humor and gameplay, in the spirit of Viewitful Joe.

 

#6

smash bros 4

Super Smash Bros For Wii U

Bandai-Namco Games/ Nintendo

2014

Aside from having the coolest cover art of all time, this game comes with some truly great additions in levels and especially characters. A lot of characters got changes made to them too which is nice. There is plenty to do in this game, but getting everything is very tedious, especially farming for the newly added alternative special moves each character has. The board game single player is pretty fun. The game seems a bit lacking however, due to how big brawl was. They can only make it so much bigger. Though it is obvious they put everything they have into this game…and it’s Smash Bros…so it’s timeless fun.

 

#5

bayo2

Bayonetta 2

PlatinumGames/ Nintendo

2016

In short, this is one of the best action games ever made. Far better than the first one.

 

#4

super mario maker

Super Mario Maker

Nintendo

2015

This is one of the greatest ideas of all time. Giving players the ability to create their own Mario levels with a ton of ways to do so? Wowee! You could literally play this game the rest of your life, enjoying the millions of stages others have created or just building your own. Some levels are genius, others, not so much. But one things for sure, it’s a whole lot of fun. The one downside is you can only upload 10 levels unless people “like” your levels a whole lot of times, then you can add more. If none get liked enough, they are removed from online, which kind of takes the fun out of making levels, though I see why this is necessary.

 

#3

nsmbu

New Super Mario Bros. U

Nintendo

2012

They finally stopped f’ing around with the “New” series with this game. This is the first time the platformers could really live up to the old SMW and SMB3. Super creative levels, cool new items and a huge world make this one to remember.

 

#2

windwakerhd

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

HexaDrive/ Nintendo

2013

This remaster basically took a great game, removed all it’s flaws and turned it into one of the best Zelda games of all time.

 

#1

super_Mario_3D_World

Super Mario 3D World

Nintendo

2013

This game is simply jaw dropping. It gave us everything I could have hoped for. The cat suit is strangely awesome, the levels, gameplay, 4 playable characters…all just incredible.

 

There you have it…10 incredible games among a whole library of them.

How Can People Consider the “Spin Off” Kingdom Hearts Games Not Part of the Actual Series?

In the hype leading up to KH3, I have seen a lot of people argue that the hand held games are not relevant to the series at all. These are mostly those macho “hardcore” gamers who wouldn’t dare play anything on anything other than the shiniest, manly console, thus they say only the numbered titles are the actual series.

I can understand where they are coming from. The three numbered games stick to the same formula (with huge improvements to gameplay as they go on). And they are the 3 best games, as I show in my ranking of them. So in those terms, I get what they are saying. But to just write off the others, which also have superb gameplay, is just ridiculous.

And then many others say the handheld games are not even important to the story, thus the spin off term coming into play.

This is just an unbelievably stupid thing to say and makes those who say it look incredibly ignorant. Yes, we get that you haven’t played the games. Leave it at that. Don’t keep talking about it, because the fact that you haven’t played them takes away your right to talk about them, for how can you judge what you haven’t played?

But if you want to follow the story, you will be woefully lost playing just 1, 2, and 3. I played 2 before Chain of Memories, and while I got the gist of what was going on after a while, it was confusing for a few hours. But that was just from one game. There are 4 games that came out between 2 and 3, all which set up everything that was going on in 3. Playing just the numbered games, you wouldn’t even know who 90% of the characters are. Ventus, Terra, Aqua, half the organization members, the main villain…all not important people at all. And even people you do know, like Axel and Roxas, you would only have a recognition of them and no little to nothing about their actual characters.

I’m sorry, I just get a laugh out of these folks is all.

Why It Doesn’t Make Sense To Make Fun Of Millennials (Or Really Any Generation Younger Than Your Own)

Millennials are generally considered people who are born roughly between 1981-1996, give or take a few years. And for years, all you hear about is how these folks are like the losers of the universe, dumb, entitled babies and the like. They get trashed on by everyone, typically older folks are the ones doing it obviously. But when I see this, I have got to laugh, for it makes no sense at all.

Cuz here’s the thing, older gens that make fun of them. Millennials are products of YOU raising them in a world YOU created. Seriously. This is why it is so stupid for older gens to make fun of younger ones.

Not to mention, each generation grows up in a completely different world. Think of how your grandparents, parents and yourself grew up. They are 100% different. If you are in your 20’s or older even, your world today is substantially different from when you were a little kid.

And life doesn’t get much easier, in a ever more crowded and complicated world, I feel very bad for kids being born today, for in 20 years, I don’t want to imagine how crappy everything will be. Especially when the supposed millenials take over running the world.

There is a humorous article that tells 50 of the things millennials are made fun. Some of them just make no sense, most of them are really just what happens with the current technology and what not. The world is changing with each generation, especially due to the crazy tech uprising, and I can just conclude that the older people don’t like all the changes so blame it on them young whippersnappers.

The one I hear about most is the participation awards. Everyone deserves an award for everything. I don’t recall any millennial ever begging for a trophy or some kind of reward for just showing up. This had to been an idea that the parents made up. Sure some kids might have been sad that their team didn’t win and they wished they got a trophy, which may have started the idea, but still, it’s not like a bunch of 6 year olds banded together and protested that everyone should get something.

Trends, styles, fads…etc. These have changed yearly, so why is it that it is so surprising and offensive that millennials have them as well? There is always going to be new things people get interested and then drop. All about change…again. People hate differences. It’s literally generational racism.

The point I’m trying to get across is, as people grow up, they create new things, which eventually derail life styles between each generation, and then the older people get ticked for them not going through life exactly as they had. This has been going on forever, and will continue to do so. So the only thing to do is just let it happen, for change is inevitable, so why cause rifts and problems. Because guess what? The generation above you hates your ass too.

Why can’t we all just get along?

Tournament Of Hotties: Bond Girls Semi-Finals

Welcome to the semi-finals. 7 of the dozens of women Bond has made sweet love to have fought and clawed their way here. Due to an uneven amount of girls, 3 will make it to the finals, where they will battle to see who the hottest Bond girl of all time is! Check out the rest of the tournament listed here. Now let’s get to it!

 

Bout #1

 

Honey Ryder (Dr. No)

honey ryder 2

 

VS

 

domino wave

Domino (Thunder Ball)

 

Dang. Right away we have two fierce hotties.

Honey Ryder is a smoking hot blond. Let’s take a look. So far we have only seen pictures of her bikini clad self from the movie for the most part. Let’s branch out a bit today.

 

Sexy throughout her whole life. Age means nothing for this beloved beauty.

 

 

A sexy brunette with an adorable smile.

 

Both of these women have absolutely earned the right to make it this far. Both have amazing bodies and incredibly good looks. But only one may advance and we all know who it is…

 

Victor

ursula andress 6

Honey Ryder (Dr. No)

 

 

Bout #2

 

Solitaire (Live and Let Die)

solitaire pose tie

 

VS

 

anya poster

Anya Amasova (The Spy Who Loved Me)

 

Solitaire is so innocent (partially due to her character) but super hot as well. Her low cut outfits always make viewers drool a bit…

 

Turns out she is even more smoking outside of the Bond movie. And age hasn’t really slowed her down either. She is incredibly sexy in that one picture where she is older.

 

But let’s see what Anya has to say about it.

 

 

Another beautiful woman. Also just discovered she’s not one to shy away from showing some boob, which is big bonus points.

 

This is a tough one. Both women are incredibly hot, but I think this one pushes ahead ever so slightly.

 

Victor

jane seymour 3

Solitaire (Live and Let Die)

 

 

Bout #3

 

We’ve got a 3’fer for this one.

 

Ploa Ivanova (A View To A Kill)

pola boo

 

VS

 

christmas jones walk

Dr. Christmas Jones

(The World Is Not Enough)

 

VS

 

Miranda Frost-Die-Another-Day-ice-palace-bed-scene-bond-girls-40324827-690-450

 

Miranda Frost (Die Another Day)

 

This is the battle of the blonds! Which of these three hotties will advance to the finals? I guess we’ll have to check out some pictures.

 

Pola looks great in a hot tub. Let’s see how she looks in clothes.

Sorry…isn’t too much on her.

 

Next up is Christmas…yes I resisted the urge to make a Christmas joke.

Mmm…scrumptious.

Next is good ol’ Miranda!

 

Phew…sexy

 

Alright, there is a clear first, second and third here.

Right away, looking at these 3 women, Pola is easily the worst looking out of all of them.

Miranda is very sexy, but there is something missing from her…I can’t tell what though. She’s hot enough to have made it this far, but I don’t know what it is that is holding her back.

This leaves an almost easy win for Ms. Christmas!

 

Victor

denise_richards_03

Dr. Christmas Jones

(The World Is Not Enough)

 

Alright, at long last we have our 3 finalists! See you in the finals!

 

 

 

Tournament Of Hotties: Bond Girls Round 3

Bout #1

 

Honey Ryder (Dr. No)

honey-ryder-in-bikini

 

VS

 

romanova

Tatiana Romanova

(From Russia With Love)

 

Phew…Two beautiful blonds…but one of them is clearly hotter than the other…

 

Victor

honey ryder towel

Honey Ryder (Dr. No)

 

 

Bout #2

 

Domino (Thunderball)

domino goggles

 

VS

 

helga top

Helga Brandt (You Only Live Twice)

 

Again, two absolutely beautiful/hot women, one young, one a bit older. There is a clear winner yet again…

 

Victor

domino smile

Domino (Thunderball)

 

 

Bout# 3

 

Solitaire (Live and Let Die)

 

solitaire the-four-feathers-the-james

 

VS

 

mary goodnight 4

Mary Goodnight

(Man With The Golden Gun)

The first two bouts in this round had clear winners despite each woman being gorgeous. This one, there is not a clear winner. Both women are sexy as heck. Mary even spends a good amount of time during the movie in a bikini, showing off her flawless bod. Even with the silly face she makes in this photo of her, she is still evidently beautiful.

Solitaire has an innocent, yet sexy vibe going on, and just looks to have amazing skin that you just want to slip inside…if you catch my meaning…

This is a tough call but…

 

Victor

solitaire real

Solitaire (Live and Let Die)

 

 

Bout #4

 

Anya Amasova (The Spy Who Loved Me)

anya 3

 

VS

 

octopussy 2

Octopussy (Octopussy)

Old versus young here, but again, we are back to both being beautiful but with a clear winner.

 

Victor

Anya Amasova 07

Anya Amasova (The Spy Who Loved Me)

 

 

Bout #5

 

Pola Ivanova (A View To A Kill)

pola bond

 

VS

pam bouvier

Pam Bouvier (License To Kill)

 

To short haired beauties, with hot, sexy bodies. But once more there is a clear winner.

 

Victor

polaview3

Pola Ivanova (A View To A Kill)

 

Though being wet and naked really helps her.

 

Bout #6

 

Professor Inga Bergstrom

(Tomorrow Never Dies)

cecilie thomsen-07

 

VS

christmas purple

Dr. Christmas Jones

(The World Is Not Enough)

 

Oh boy. These are two hotties if I ever saw some. Inga is a quick lay at the beginning of a movie, but she is such a smoking blond with a perfect body.

But Christmas just oozes sexiness, to the point that she looks way better in that sexy purple dress than Inga does naked.

 

Victor

christmas

Dr. Christmas Jones

(The World Is Not Enough)

 

 

Bout #7

 

Miranda Frost (Die Another Day)

miranda frost

 

VS

 

severine blur

Severine (Skyfall)

 

This is a tough one. Both of these women are very hot, and even more sexy. They have tough attitudes and dirty thoughts, not to mention flawless bodies. But there is one that does have an edge. She has some kind of sexiness to her, yet innocence that just draws you in.

 

Victor

rosamund-pike-die-another-day-promos-stills_9

Miranda Frost (Die Another Day)

 

 

That’s it for now. See you in the semi-finals!

Kingdom Hearts Series Ranked

In celebration of the extremely long awaited Kingdom Hearts III (it’s hard to believe it’s nearly here) I am going to rank all the games from worst to best in my opinion. I will just be listing the base games, not all the Re:this or that or Final Mix versions and compilation games.

So without further ado, here we go!

 

*UPDATE 2/8/19* Added Kingdom Hearts III to list.

#10

Kingdom Hearts Unchained X

2016, Mobile

Times Beaten- N/A

This is a mobile phone game where you collect and upgrade medals of characters from Kingdom Hearts, Disney, and Final Fantasy. You use these medals to perform special attacks. The more powerful you become, the more quests you can take on and the more rewards you will reap. It is a never ending soul sucking game, but I continue to play it everyday…such is my devotion to Kingdom Hearts. For a free to play game, the devs are extremely generous in giving you a lot of stuff, and overall, it’s probably the best mobile game out there.

#9

Kingdom Hearts .2 Birth By Sleep

– A fragmentary passage-

2017, PlayStation 4

Times Beaten- 1

This is a brand new entry included in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (rolls right off the tongue) that takes place right after Birth By Sleep and uncovers a lot of mysteries leading up to Kingdom Hearts 1. Well some mysteries anyway.

This is actually a fantastic game, which really gives us a taste of what to expect from Kingdom Hearts III. The only reason it is so low on the list is because of how short it is (less than 3 hours).

#8

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

GameBoy Advanced, 2004- PlayStation 2, 2008

Times Beaten- GBA 2, PS2, 2

This, gameplay wise, is not very fun. The game itself is very long, especially with the Riku story. It wouldn’t be so bad if the card system was better, but it is so annoying to have your cards broken all the time, making the game very grindy and monotonous. The story is very interesting however, which makes it all worth it, taking place immediately after the first game.

#7

Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded

DS, 2011

Times Beaten- 1

Taking place right after KH2, this takes us on a very unusual journey with some rather differentish gameplay. I wasn’t all that crazy about this one, and the story did little for the overall arc.

#6

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

DS, 2009

Times Beaten- 2

This is where the games really start to get incredible. This varies the gameplay up a bit, having you run missions for Organization XIII. There’s an awesome multiplayer where you can play as all the members, and the story, which takes place during the later end of 1, all of CoM and leads directly into 2, fills in a whole lot of confusing things that occur during CoM and especially 2. And the game is incredibly fun to boot!

#5

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

3DS, 2012

Times Beaten- 2

Taking place after Re:Coded, this one takes us right up into KH3. The gameplay is quite good, the story rather mindblowing, and the dream eaters…meh…Fortunately the game is so stinking fun it’s easy to forget about the constant care of those needy creatures. And for the first time, you switch off between playing as Sora and Riku, which is most welcome.

#4

Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep

PlayStation Portable, 2010

Times Beaten- 4

I have easily put the most time into this game. Taking place like 10 years before the first game, you play as 3 wannabe keyblade masters and experience how each of them is set on a different path that leads to nowhere good. The story, gameplay, and skill customization is wonderful. This is the reason I bought a PSP and have no regrets.

#3

Kingdom Hearts

PlayStation 2, 2002

Times Beaten- Around 5

I can still remember playing this for the first time after refusing to have any interest in it for over a year. When my brother convinced me to play it, I fell in love immediately. The story gripped me so, the Disney characters were awesome, seeing them kill stuff was even more awesome.

As far as gameplay goes, this has some of the worst in the series, but it still holds up enough. It was the first in the series so it gets a break. It’s still a great game and one I still get excited about playing.

#2

Kingdom Hearts II

PlayStation 2, 2005

Times Beaten- Around 4

This is by far and away the best game in the series. The gameplay is absolutely perfect. There are so many abilities to use that keep it fresh, but even just mashing the X button is highly satisfying. The story is as wonderful as ever, leaving us all dying to see what happens next, until Re: Coded came out that is. This is definitely a masterpiece to go down in history.

#1

Kingdom Hearts III

PlayStation 4, 2019

Times Beaten- 1

The conclusion to the Xehanort saga, this game focuses on Sora and company looking for all the other characters that have had relevance in the series. It’s a fun ride, with interesting connections and reasoning for going to each world, whether it be a clever connection to the world itself or the characters themselves. There are less worlds, but they are much, much bigger.

The best part of this game is that it takes the gameplay of KH2, and just makes it better, with all sorts of wild attacks and transformations that are awesome looking, on top of being powerful. I couldn’t stop playing the game. It is so much fun and so diverse. Well worth the wait!

And that’s it!

If you have never played these games, I highly recommend getting the story so far compilation and prepare to have your mind blown with exceptional gameplay and a crazy, amazing story.

My Top 10 PlayStation 2 Games

PS2 is the best selling console of all time, and really is a much better console than the PS1, though still far from my favorite, but I do love it anyway. I have 55 games for the sequel console and have played 41 of them so far. So which are my top 10? Let’s take a look!

#10

Mega_Man_X8_Coverart

Mega Man X8

Valuewave Co., Ltd/ Capcom

2004

The last game in the X series is pretty solid and a huge step up from 7, bringing back more of the roots of the series.

#9

king kong

Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie

Ubisoft Montpellier/ Ubisoft

2005

I was gifted this randomly by someone and I thought it was going to be terrible like most movie games are. But it turned out to be an exciting, unique mostly first person shooter, and you even get to play as Kong on occasion which were great segments. A very solid and fun game. Now I know why…I had no idea it was made by Ubisoft.

Call of Duty 2: Big Red One

Treyarch/ Activision

2005

This is by far my favorite Call of Duty game. It was made in the height of first person shooters, a few years before their decline. So in addition to that, what really set this one apart for me was the story, or rather the character development of your group of soldiers. You actually get to learn about the people in your squad and develop an attachment of sorts to them, making you actually feel like part of the team. This has never been done before and never has again…as far as I know anyway.

This is easily my favorite Dragon Ball game of all time, and mainly because of the enormous roster. I can always sit and play a few matches thanks to the endless amount of characters, crazy attack moves and transformations.

Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories

Jupiter Corporation/ Square Enix

2008

A full remake of the original GBA game, this version of the first sequel to Kingdom Hearts is quite impressive. Thanks to the clever use of cards, this is one of the best strategy games out there. But it’s easily the worst game in the KH series, mainly because it’s very slow moving, grindy and getting your cards broken all the time is super annoying. But it has a great story and introduces a butt load of important characters.

This is definitely my most played game on PS2. I played the crap out of it. Alone or with a friend, this game is so much fun. There’s nothing like whittling away a few hours by blowing up space ships or slaughtering armies of droids or troopers.

God of War

SCE Santa Monica/ SCEA

2005

This game set the standard for all future action games. Smooth, responsive controls, exhilarating combat, light puzzle solving, banging chicks, killing gods…this is the most macho game ever, and Kratos is easily the most bad ass character ever created. Such a fun game. Oh, and a good story.

This game doesn’t F around. You start with everything you had in the first game and just get stronger. All the perfection from the first game is brought back and somehow improved upon, making this one of the best games ever made.

Kingdom Hearts

2002

I was hooked the moment I played this game. This was the best RPG I ever played at the time, because it took all the good stuff from the genre and left out all that complicated crap. The gameplay is excellent, the game satisfyingly challenging, and the start of the best story ever. Oh and the incredible wacky idea of combining Disney and Final Fantasy is geniusly bizzare.mIt’s hard to believe that 16 years later, we still have not seen the conclusion of said story.

Kingdom Hearts II

Square Enix

2006

And here is my favorite PS2 game of all time! This game makes the first one look crappy beyond belief when compared to this one. It is hard to believe just how much they improved this game over it’s prequels. It’s just so good…the story, the world’s, the gameplay…my god the combat is so much fun. This is the only game I can think of that I would willingly grind just because it’s so much fun to kill stuff. It’s just a masterpiece…sniff…
