I have a confession: Until recently I had never so much as even tried Minecraft. Now before the mob calls for my head and gathers their pitchforks allow me to explain. I wasn't actively avoiding Minecraft and I certainly haven't been living under a rock for the past few years. It's just one of those games I never got around to.

Recently I've been giving the question some thought and because GameGrep is kind enough to afford me a platform on which to do so, I've decided to share my musings with all of you.

In my personal opinion the whole debate about whether or not games should qualify as art is a big bunch of malarky. Because to ask that question implies A. That every book ever written, movie ev...

Natural Doctrine is an interesting strategy RPG. It takes a very different approach to the SRPG genre and in some ways it's good and in some ways its bad.

During the struggle the buyer's 16 year old girlfriend, whose 16 month old baby was in the car, grabbed a .25 Pistol and fired a shot, which went through her boyfriend's hand and into Danny's chest.
