Top Star Wars Games Ever Made

OK, so that title may be a little misleading. This is really the top Star Wars games that I have ever played. I have great taste in games so trust me when I tell you that you need to try these out it you've never played them.


Star Wars Trilogy Arcade

Who hasn't bee lined it right for this beautiful arcade game whenever they saw it as a kid. I know it was the game I'd lose my first few quarters to. It was a massive sit down machine with a huge screen that put you right into the action. One of my favs was the cockpit of an X-Wing during the first Death Star run. The sound was so shooty bang bang lasery. I was in heaven every time I found one that was in good enough condition to play. And, what about that bonus lightsaber duel with Darth Vader!?! I could never beat him, but it was still so exhilarating to move the single joystick and try to block his attacks.


Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

When I was in high school I read way too many Star Wars books. One of my favorites was Shadows of the Empire. I liked this book so much that I bought the soundtrack to it. Yea, they make soundtracks to books. I went so far as to read the book while listening to the music. You can be a nerd like me an listen here.

Shadows of the Empire was released around 1996 and I played it on the N64. I don't remember it looking like butt back then, but seeing it in action now makes me happy we've improved as a society. It's probably not worth going back to, but at the time I was all about that mess.



Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

In 2008 video games were just starting to add physics to their gameplay and The Force Unleashed was at the forefront of that addition. Ragdoll animations were taken to a new level and the dynamically destructible environments were on par with everyday tornados that roll across the great plains. It was a proper action game and triple AAA title that Star Wars fans had been clamoring for. It's too bad that the follow-ups were bland and disappointing, but at least we got force lightning and force push to play with that was very satisfying.


Star Wars Battlefront

This was supposed to be the Star Wars game we were waiting for and at first it looked like it was going to be. The power of the PS4 made the visuals look amazing. The environments looked like they were pulled right off the movie screen. The sound was pitch perfect. It had everything going for it and then it was released. Although it was a shallow release of a game with no real depth, it still has so much polish that playing with bros can lead to some fun times. Hope they made enough off of this release to make another one, but this time with a story mode!



I know you nerds feel like I left out the best Star Wars games like those Bioware ones. Like I said before, I only listed the games I have played. ;)

MLB The Show 16: Sliders or Bust

I love stats and I love sports so baseball was invented for someone like me. For a while now I've picked up MLB The Show and every year is the same, I have to update the sliders to get the perfect simulation experience without sacrificing fun. If you're just looking for stats  Out of the Park Baseball   is what you need, but if you want more interaction, then maybe getting under the hood of The Show is in order. It all goes down like this. I get the game on or around day one and play it for an hour or two. I always think to myself, "wow this plays great out of the box. I may not have to change a thing". Then I sit down to play more and little things start to stand out. I don't give up or get any walks, I haven't hit a home run in 5 games or my batting average is sub .200. That's when I start my yearly search for a slider set that works for me. I need something that gives me stats that mirror the real MLB but also tricks me into the feeling that I'm

Review: Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories (PS4)

Disaster Report 4 is a game with a fascinating history, similar to Duke Nukem Forever, Half Life 3, or whatever Final Fantasy Versus XIII, but without all the hype. The Disaster Report series has been around since 2002 but has not had a title released since 2009. Disaster Report 4 was first announced for PS3 release in 2011. As one of the few Disaster Report fans, I closely followed any news for such an obscure title only covered by niche sites such as this one. The game was cancelled after several release dates were pushed back and ultimately the biggest earthquake ever recorded, at the time, hit Japan. Disaster Report hit close to home with its earthquake theme, thus it was cancelled altogether. Fast forward almost a decade later and we finally get the much-anticipated 4 entry in this weird survival horror natural disaster Japanese series. Was it worth the wait? Disaster Report 4 feels like a throwback to where it originates from, the early 2000’s. This can be a good or
