Deepest thanks to Chris and the crew at At the Buzzer for giving me the opportunity to do a little extra credit writing. Be sure to check out their site where they’re currently posting their Top 100 Video Games along with tons of other great content. Stop over, read, comment, and listen the ATB podcast!
