Final Fantasy VI is one of the most popular games in the storied franchise. Originally released on the Super Nintendo in 1994, the game has since appeared on the original PlayStation, Game Boy Advance and the Wii Virtual Console. After years of waiting, fans will soon be able to play Final Fantasy VI on Steam.

If you've been following any gaming community in the past couple of days, you've probably noticed an influx of people posting lists of their favorite games of all time. GameFAQs is hosting a battle to decide the "best game ever", with fans' votes forging a path to victory. An intrepid user has put together a test of sorts that will let you vote on various matchups of games to help you decide your personal favorites.

The sights and sounds of games give them a vibrancy over just the written word of a book. For me personally, music tends to age far better than any other aspect of a game - which might explain why so many classic games still have some of the best music.

In a very special spoiler-filled edition of the Ultimaximum Overdrive Podcast, APG brings you the Metal Gear Solid 5 spoilercast in which we discuss all things Metal Gear Solid 5 and its relation to the rest of the series.

"Star Wars games have had a disparate history in video games, with some projects ending up being smash hits and others flopping harder than Jar Jar’s jokes.

So, with the highly-anticipated Battlefront releasing this week, we decided to look at the games that faired a little more towards the dark side with their quality."

Naughty Dog has taken the spotlight recently due to gaming marvel, The Last Of Us, The Nathan Drake collection and the upcoming (and much anticipated) release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. With all the praise and excitement received on behalf of these unquestionably awesome titles, it is almost as if we’ve forgotten that some time ago now, The Naughty Dog team presented us players with the greatest, most memorable platformer of all time, Crash Bandicoot.

The game’s aim was all but a simpl...

The Vault is APG's tribute to what we believe to be the best games of all time. Read on to find out why my love for MGS was able to bloom on a battlefield.

"A general rule of the gaming world tends to see games based on movies being relatively bad. Rushed development to meet the movie’s release windows, unfinished concepts, and phoned-in performances from the stars of the films (if you’re lucky) are just some of the things that tend to hurt video game movies. But we’ve rounded up the following games that broke the mould and proved that anomalies can happen."

With Metal Gear Solid V finally out in the world, Cinelinx takes a look back at some of the most iconic boss battles the franchise has had over the last couple decades.

"Welcome back. Earlier today we talked about some of our favorite titles on the PlayStation. Two titles for a twenty year anniversary. It is still hard to believe that is has been that long. I actually did not intend to buy a PlayStation on day one. My childhood friend Randy had convinced me to go half-in on a console that we would trade back and forth every other week. At first I was reluctant - but I decided to go through with it. Randy however, came up short when the console released in the..."

"So I have been gaming for... a long time now. I have had most consoles over the years at one point or the other, but one of the few I had day one was the original Sony PlayStation. Why is this significant? Because the system is celebrating its twenty year anniversary this week (technically yesterday here in North America). I absolutely loved this system and put together a lot of my fondest video gaming memories playing it. So, to celebrate twenty years, I am listing out my top twenty games to..."

"Wildly successful for its 3D graphics, variety of great games, and success of the CD format, the PlayStation would go on to influence the use of optical CDs in video game consoles, and spawn successor consoles that have either outsold or competed with those devolved by Microsoft or Nintendo."

On this day in 1997, Final Fantasy VII was released in North America. The 7th installment in the series, it was the first to use 3D graphics, with fully rendered characters and backgrounds. Often credited as the game that popularized role-playing games in America, it’s gone on to sell over 11 million copies. You may have heard of this little gem.

"I’m going to start off my first title on this list which also happens to be one of my favorite games of all time. It’s one of two on this list that fits that bill alongside Breath of Fire III, Shovel Knight and more. Without further blabbering on my part, here are my Top 5 games that should have had sequels - but didn't!

Rogue Galaxy

Rogue Galaxy is an action RPG developed by Level-5 and was published by Sony in NA a little less than a decade ago. One thing to mention right now is that..."
