I spent a good eight hours exploring through Ubisoft’s closed beta of their upcoming action RPG shooter MMO, Tom Clancy’s The Division. I really didn’t know a lot about this game going into the beta, but I now have a really good idea of what the game is going to be and that I definitely want to play it.

I was fortunate enough to be able to grow up in the era that I did. I saw the resurgence of video games, thanks to the likes of the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, and even the Turbo-Graphix and NEO-GEO. I felt a bond between myself and these crazy pixels that helped to form a fun and memorable adventure, but my strongest love for a video game came in the form of SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog.

My RETROspective | Pac-Man

Hi all this is Phil TheIssuesGuy from Phil's Recap and Review part of the ESH family. Although my focus on my site is television and film, gaming is something that's hugely important to me, and a cornerstone of my identity. Video games were so important at such an early age, partially because I was prescribed them by a Doctor when I was young. Let me explain, but first a little history.

The game that got me into gaming was the game that initially got everybody into gaming: Pong. Yes, I'm that old. My RETROspective On Pong I was a junior in high school in 1973 when I first saw that yellow, stand-up

It's an idea that's at least 50 years in the making. When the original TV version of Batman was introduced in 1966, DC Comics should have put out its own title to take advantage of a campy, over-the-top version of

My RETROspective

Each and every person who loves video games had a moment when they were growing up. That moment when something clicked and you realized that you were going to have a lifetime love affair with video games.

What makes for a truly memorable video game? To me, it's a game that you continue playing over and over and always find something new and exciting about it.
