I began my journey into the Fallout 4 without many preconceptions. I had not heavily followed its development, so much so that its release damn near caught me off guard.

Open world-style games are some of my favorites. The Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row series in particular produced some of my best experiences in the genre.

Sometimes games take themselves too serious. Multiplayer shooters in particular are guilty of this. With the rare exception of a game like Team Fortress 2 or Battlefield Heroes, most online shooters are hard to get in to and hard to love.

Does this undead flower fight have staying power or will it shamble off into the night?
NBA 2K14 was a solid, if not spectacular basketball when we reviewed It on PC. It was identical in many ways to its predecessors and had some nagging flaws that drug our opinion of it down some.
