Listmas 2018: Top Games with Stylized Graphics

With video game graphics getting more and more realistic, the games that really stand out to me above all others are actually those with interesting and unique art styles.  There’s certainly something to be said for a game that looks like a work of art, and below, I’d like to list my top examples of…

Day 19: A Game Setting You Wished You Lived In

At this point, my 30-day video game topic challenge has taken me far beyond 30 days, but I’m still plodding along.  Today’s topic asks which game setting I would like to live in.  I have gone through multiple possibilities in my head, but the one that stuck was the Rayman universe.  Ever since I first…
