Top 10 Badass Characters
It's Time to Chew Bubblegum and Surf Rockets
Everyone wants to be badass, whether they’d admit it or not. No one wants to be complimented for doing something mundane. You got to take out the trash? Instead of taking it to the curb, you say, “fuck it,” and throw it to towards the dump personally. You have to build a tent? Instead of taking it out of the bag, you suplex the bag, and use brute force the project. You need to sign a check? Instead of signing it, you stare at the check, and it writes your name because it knows better than to slam face-first into your bad side.
Today we’re looking at the top ten badass characters in video games. They get crap done, and nothing stands in their way.
Rules for this list: one character per series or one entry per franchise, although some characters are eerily similar in their own franchises I may put the two together. Also, characters have to be naturally badass. Being thrown into a circumstance that’d kill any regular person and them surviving miraculously doesn’t count, which means I’m not including Nathan Drake from the “Uncharted” series. Sorry, but he doesn’t boast confidence in badassery if he himself isn’t confident in what he does. Characters have to be from video games originally, meaning Batman won’t be showing up to this party. Lastly, no mute and emotionless characters (e.g., Commander Shepard from the “Mass Effect” series). On with the list!
Also, spoilers for certain games. Just be forewarned. Read more »

Sid Meier’s “Starships”
This Isn't Your Mama's "Civilization V!"
I feel like most people associate Sid Meier's exclusively with the "Civilization" series of games, and that is not necessarily a bad thing; they are an excellent and very well thought out series of games (experiences is perhaps more appropriate). This view, though, leaves out the fact that he has made many other simulation games including ones based around railroad systems ("Railroad Tycoon," "Railroads!") and air combat ("Ace Patrol"). This newest venture that bears the Sid Meier's branding is a step beyond other things we've seen from the master of simulation; I give to you Sid Meier's "Starships." Read more »
