One thing that keeps me playing video games day in and day out is the sheer variety of titles available. There are trends – games were predominantly platformers in the late 1980s and early ’90s, and shooters have dominated the market since “Halo: Combat Evolved” burst onto the scene in 2002.

Once a bastion of inspiration and imagination, the action/adventure genre in video games has become complacent over the years. I won’t lie and tell you the annual “Assassin’s Creed” releases are bad or that the dramatic set pieces of the “Uncharted” series aren’t impressive. But even avid fans of the genre will admit the games have become formulaic.
The International Olympic Committee and local organizers have already said another postponement is impossible, leaving cancellation – or opening on July 23 – as the only options.

The most consumerist time of the year is behind us, but that doesn’t mean anyone’s lost interest in picking up a fancy, new PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S. The hype is a bit of a mystery to me – over the years, I’ve watched the launch lineups of new game consoles grow consistently weaker.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – In late May, Andre Hill and his roommate Donyell Bryant watched in shock, along with the nation, the video of a Minneapolis police officer pressing his knee on George Floyd’s neck for minutes, even as Floyd pleaded that he couldn’t breathe.
For its many miseries, 2020 delivered some extremely memorable video games. And now, with the arrival of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, there’s more reason than usual to get excited for the offerings of the year ahead.

We streamed, we Zoomed, we ordered groceries and houseplants online, we created virtual villages while navigating laptop shortages to work and learn from home. When it comes to technology, 2020 was a year like no other.
I was so excited about the arrival of 2020 that I almost purchased a pair of those goofy New Year's Eve glasses with the upcoming digits that celebrants sport in Times Square when the ball drops during "Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve." I was looking forward to 2020 ever since my son Eddie, who graduated from high school in June, entered kindergarten.
I pay little mind to award shows regardless of the medium, but the Gaming Awards livestreamed Dec. 10 also served as a platform for developers to announce upcoming video games.

Pigs will fly before we see an Olympics without doping. Fantastic as that sounds, it’s practically a guarantee.
After three delays dating back to April, the long-awaited “Cyberpunk 2077” was unleashed upon the gaming world on Dec. 10. It’s the latest effort by CD Projekt Red, the Polish development team best-known for “The Witcher” series that catapulted a little-known book series into stardom. This time, the team exercised its open-world, role-playing game muscles.
For generations, the IOC knew exactly where to look for key support of its ban against protests at the Olympics.
