Games To Try Before You Die: Tetris (NES, Game Boy, iOS, etc)

The question of the century should be, "Who hasn't played Tetris?" Tetris is the most popular puzzle game of all time. With games at the time like Super Mario Bros. where you were saving the princess, everyone got on board the puzzle craze that is Tetris. Started in the late 80's and the craze continues today.

Games to Try Before You Die: TMNT 2-The Arcade Game (NES)

If you grew up in the late 80's and 90's, you know who the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are. Pizza addicted turtles that happen to be ninjas. Man, cartoons were so much better in the 90's! Even though they still exist today, they are not as "rad" as they were. With their popularity, also came a Nintendo game. No...not the first one...the second one....kicked ass!

Games To Try Before You Die: Resident Evil (PSX, Saturn)

Well, it's Halloween today, so I think it is a perfect day to do some horror video gaming! What could fit better than the game that perfected the 'survival horror' genre. Zombies right now are all the rage, and that rage began in gaming with Resident Evil.

Games To Try Before You Die: Silent Hill (PSX)

Since it is Halloween time, I better inform you about a terrifying game. This game here, will scare the living crap out of you man. Many games have attempted to scare you, such as Resident Evil, Alone in the Dark, Night Trap, etc. They did a pretty good job at it, but nothing is quite as terrifying as Silent Hill.

Games To Try Before You Die: Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (Genesis)

The 'Blue Dude With 'Tude' was in his prime back in the 90's! It was a constant battle on who was the better mascot. Mario or Sonic? Here in America, we loved Sonic! He was fast, cool, and had attitude (everything in the 90's was about attitude...don't ask me, it's just how it was). Sonic The Hedgehog 2 was a typical pack-in game that came with your Genesis, and for many, was the first Genesis game you played.

Bringing Back a 90′s Soda Named “SURGE”

When it comes to gaming, we need fuel. The requirement of this gaming fuel is a massive amount of caffeine and sugar. Especially if you are gaming all night on World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, or even a marathon of Mario games. You need to be focused! Sure we have plenty of energy drinks today, but nothing as good as this caffeine classic. I think it's time again to FEED THE RUSH, with SURGE!

Games To Try Before You Die: The Last Story (Wii)

There is a lot of 'Shovelware' on Nintendo Wii. Games like Game Party, Chicken Blaster, etc. Wii's game library is about 89% crap. There is however, a few diamonds in the rough when it comes to Nintendo's motion based console. After years of fan demand, to have this game brought over from Japan, we got our wish. Our efforts were definitely rewarded with this game.

Games To Try Before You Die: Beavis And Butt-Head (SNES,Genesis)

Growing up in the 90's was pretty awesome. We had some great video games and some pretty damn good television. TV today is plagued with a ton of reality shows. Some good, most bad. MTV back in the 90's though, defined a generation of music and produced programming that was not meant for the young audience. This is where we got 2 bungholes that defined a generation, known as Beavis and Butt-Head. Even though they are entirely stupid, they made 2 pretty good games.
