Top Ten Favourite Albums of 2014

topten_album2014The year 2014 has ended, and like everyone other person on the planet Earth, I like to reflect on the highs and lows of the year. So here it is, Ryan’s Top Ten Albums of 2014. Continue reading “Top Ten Favourite Albums of 2014”

Ryan’s Game of the Year 2014

goty2015The year 2014 has come to a close and it’s time to reflect on some of things that were most important to us. For me, that reflection is video games. I played a lot of games this year, as I do every year, but actually had even more time to finish a lot of the games I played.

I rather liked the format I chose last year, but think I’ll make it a little shorter this time. I played a lot of what I would suppose are the contenders for game of the year with a few notable exceptions because they’re from series’ that I have either never liked, or grown tired of, such as Call of Duty and Assassin’s Creed.

Top Ten Favourite Film Franchises

topten_moviefranchiseWith Peter Jackson wrapping up his time in Middle Earth, Marvel and DC announcing a new movie every day, and just about every other movie company rebooting or making sequels twenty years later, I thought it would be fun to count down the ten film franchises that, without fail, get me to toss them more than a few shekels every time they release a movie.

Top Ten Anberlin Songs

topten_anberlinAnberlin released their final album last month and are about to embark on their final tour. I thought now would be a good time to look back over their entire catalogue and take on the very difficult task of narrowing down their overall excellent song list and choose just ten of my favourite songs.

Top Ten Our Lady Peace Songs

I may have been a child when most of these tracks came out, but they’re timeless songs that are not only relevant today, but are still some of the best rock songs ever written. Arguably the best thing to come out of Canada before everyone hated us for Justin Beiber; these are my Top Ten Our Lady Peace songs.

Top Ten: E3 2014 Features

toptene32014Every year there’s at least one event that every gamer looks forward to for new announcements from their favourite game developers and hardware providers. That event is E3. Continue reading “Top Ten: E3 2014 Features”

Top Ten Albums 2013

toptenThings were a little lackluster in the Top Ten department last year and that’s partly because, for one, it’s occasionally difficult to come up with, and actually review a lot of content on your own, and two because I didn’t like the separate post format. It makes it difficult to navigate, and if you want to go from entry to entry, you’re often left with this random gap between posts with completely unrelated content. With my Game of the Year 2013, I experimented with a new paginated format which I’m going to use for all future Top Tens. While it may result in one gigantic post, and possibly fewer page views; it will lessen my spamming of you guys every day with each entry, and it will make it easier to read. It may however, take me a little longer to get them out since I’ll have to write the whole thing in one post, but it will all be worth it at the end of the day. Trust me.

Ryan’s Game of the Year 2013

goty

I think for the first time in my life I’ve finally been able to not only afford but actually have time to play newer games. While I’m still spending some time catching up on a back log of PS3 games, I think I’ve seen and played enough of 2013’s big entries to make a decision. Continue reading “Ryan’s Game of the Year 2013”
