Stepping away from game discussion to briefly talk about the election. I wouldn’t say anything if I wasn’t very worried, as a physician and citizen. Our country is in danger, and those in charge are turning a blind eye to the COVID-19 pandemic while millions suffer and hundreds of thousands…


We are all in need of some distraction as the election and COVID-19 drag on. With Halloween around the corner, why not talk about some of my favorite horror games? Are these games suitable for children? I’ll let you take a wild guess on that one. …

  • Deliver Us the Moon
  • Portal 1 and 2
  • Super Mario 3D All-stars
  • Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Or literally any other game. Seriously though, we all need November 3 to happen and be behind us.
