Stephan’s Top 100 Video Games

I’ve been blessed in my short time on this planet to have played hundreds and hundreds of video games.

My Dad sat next to me on our living room couch from the beginning, through so many different adventures. From Portal 2 to Ratchet & Clank and Don’t Starve he always showed a huge interest in my passion which made me feel more and more excited to explore video games, write about video games and ultimately work in video games.

If you ask me who won at the end of E3 2017 I would argue I did. Why? Because there’s dozens of new awesome, beautiful, scary, intriguing and compelling video games coming out in the next year that I can’t wait to play. Continue reading →
