My 25 Favorite Games of All Time

I’m not qualified to write a list of the best video games ever made. No one is. No one on the planet has played every video game ever released. No writer can completely remove his personal preferences from any attempt at objectivity. No reviewer can take a thoroughly esoteric value like “quality” and transform it perfectly into a linear scale. Many have vainly tried; I’m not even going to bother. I haven’t played every game ever. I never owned a Super NES, and I haven’t touched a Nintendo console or handheld since the days of the 64. I skipped the original Playstation and didn’t buy a Playstation 2 until the console and all of its games were dirt cheap because the Playstation 3 had just launched. For what it’s worth, I generally dislike first-person-shooters that have me shooting something other than aliens, games based on...

Top 10 Posts of 2011

It’s that time of year again. Another year of video game douchebaggery, and we have another collection of 10 posts that performed well over the course of the year. This list is purely based on traffic, no other things were taken into consideration, like social media, comments, or any sort of subjective opinion. 2011 was a very successful year for us here at D Pad D Bags, we got our podcast up to 72 episodes, we added a new writer to the blog(YachtCaptianColby), started broadcasting our podcast and gaming content via TwitchTV, and we were nominated for a Most Valuable Blogger award. In 2012, we are looking to grow more, add more writers, produce more content, continue our podcast and entertain you as we find possible. Now on to the list! 10. It’s Not the Size of the Weapon That Counts but the Fury of...

Belated Gaming Thanks

Too often, all we gamers do is bitch, and moan, and whine, and complain, and bitch some more about our favorite medium.  Well, it’s that time of year when we’re supposed to be NICE.  I’m going to give this new fad a try before all the annoying Christmas commercials suck every last iota of positive energy from my soul.  If I get arrested in the next few weeks it’s probably because I pushed that stupid Target lady down a flight of stairs.  These are the things I’m thankful for in the world of gaming. I’m thankful for the shotgun.  The only weapon you really need.  Sure, the pistol’s cute, the assault rifle makes a lot of noise, and the sniper rifle is useful once or twice, but nothing beats the pure ball-busting power of a good ol’ shotgun.  Zombies?  No problem.  Aliens?  Probe this, bitch! ...

Occupy Hyrule Castle

Dear King Whatever the Fuck Your Name Is, Good morrow to you, sire.  By now your lordship has surely noticed the spunky individuals taking up residence in a ragtag tent city opposite the Royal Drawbridge.  Hyrule is surely a beautiful, well-governed kingdom, and yet even the greatest of nations suffers an imperfection or two.  Shit could be worse, but it could also be a lot better, especially for your poorest subjects.  We, your loyal and concerned subjects, have brought a petition explaining our wants and needs for kingly perusal. Firstly, 100% of the triforce is held by less than 1% of Hyrule’s population.  This concentration of omnipotent magic is a blight upon the land that cannot be allowed to stand.  We demand that it be broken into a few more pieces so that it might be more evenly distributed among your citizenry. We demand the...
