What Metalhead Ned Learned While Attending His First Open House

I live in a two-bedroom apartment in Grandville, with my wife and two cats.

She has a lot of stuff, and so do I. We have tons of video games, lots of books, a 7-foot Master Chief statue, etc.

In short, we are crammed into our tiny apartment and it's beginning to get stressful.

The Most Intense Game of NBA Jam Ever [Video]

Playing NBA Jam on Sega Genesis is still one of the funnest things that I do with friends. For pretty much my entire life, I played only 2 player games with my friend Jon. Until we discovered the 4 player adapter later in life that allowed 4 players to play on screen.

The Gaming Historian Goes in Depth on History of Video Games [Video]

I think I watch more YouTube videos than I do actual TV show and movies these days.

I find myself watching anything from JonTron, Angry Video Game Nerd, Nostalgia Critic, Clueless Gamer with Conan O' Brien and so many more.

What these all have in common is they all have something to do with video gaming.

Something I really enjoy a lot about these is when they give a little back story of how the game came to be before they go into the review. I think I finally found a YouTuber that excels in the back story part.
