Hey there! Welcome to The Megalodon. We all love video games here, so let's celebrate and enjoy them together!
Stephen De Carlo
I'll never forget the day I got my very first console, the N64. I was at my friend's house playing Bomberman on his N64, and when I got home my dad was sitting on the floor trying to get a grasp on Super Mario 64. Although my gaming adventure began with the advent of 3D, I also got a Game Boy Pocket shortly thereafter, which I think is why I have an appreciation for old-school pixel gaming to this day. I'm pretty open minded when it comes to games and will play just about anything besides MOBAs and sports simulators. I've never owned a Sega console, but I have owned pretty much every system from the N64 onward. The 64, of course, was my main that generation. In the 6th generation I gave my GameCube and Xbox equal love. I barely touched my PS2, which is why I never owned a PS3 until 2014. These days I do most of my gaming on PS4, and unfortunately avoid my Xbox One like the plague. I am unapologetically a Nitntendo fanboy for life!
Some of my favorite games include: Super Smash Bros Melee, Yoshi's Island, Halo, Shovel Knight, Fable, Super Meat Boy, Jade Empire, Portal 2, Metal Gear Rising, The Darkness 2, Oblivion, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Shadow of the Colossus, FEZ, Kirby 64, Doom (2016), Night in the Woods, Splatoon 2, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Projects I've backed on Kickstarter: Nintendo Force Magazine, Shovel Knight, A.N.N.E., Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, Hyper Light Drifter, Strength of the Sword Ultimate, Pure Nintendo Magazine, Yooka-Laylee, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Chime Sharp, Mages of Mystralia, A Profound Waste of Time: A Gaming Magazine, Echoes of the First Dreamer, Chrono Cinematica, The Northerner, Next-Gen N64 Controller, and Battle Chasers: Nightwar (but my card expired and my pledge was never collected)
The Megalodon uses a 5-point scale without scores. What does this mean? It's probably just easier to show you.
We believe this is a fair system that easily gets the point across, because games are subjective and should be reviewed on a basis of the player's experience with it. We'd love your feedback, though. Please feel free to write to us about it!
