Oddly enough, there are tons of games that have the "craft" suffix, such as Starcraft, Warcraft, Minecraft, and so on. This unique naming trope in gaming makes for some interesting titles that don't seem to look or play like those aforementioned games. There are those that aren't even about crafting ...

Whenever an old genre gets some sort of HD remake of a classic, it's almost always seen with the rose-colored spectacles of nostalgia, so it has proven itself and its flaws are already well-known. But when it's an original release, there's none of that except for longtime fans of that ...

Big mod projects tend to get some hype, like the Misery mod for S.T.A.L.K.E.R., the Long War mod for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and the Skywind mod for Skyrim that attempts to add an updated version of the whole Morrowind game into it. However, these projects can take quite a bit ...

The free-to-play model in games has always been something that gamers have 50-50 feelings with. The best ones tend to be those like League of Legends and Dota 2, which has taken the world by storm. Then there are those F2P mobile games with the microtransactions that are all about ...

There are some games where you get to fulfill your Nazi-killing sharpshooting fantasies with your trusty sniper rifle, kind of like in the movie Enemy at the Gates. For those who don't think that sniping is the way of cowards and spineless wimps, as well as those who are more ...

It seems that there has been so many games about WWII, but not enough about WWI due to many factors. For one thing, the second one seems to be the more well-known one as it truly was a world war that encompassed most parts of the globe, while the first ...
