Three Video Games That Should Be Made Into Movies [MUO Gaming]

Video games and movies never seem to combine well. A great movie made into a video game always ends up being terrible, and a great game made into a movie never seems to come out much better. All that said, it doesn’t mean there are not some games out there that could make great movies if they were done correctly.

Three Free iPhone Poker Games – Which Takes The Pot?

One of the most popular card games in the real world is Texas Hold ’em, and it is a game that adapts itself very well to the iPhone, because an iPhone is always connected; making it easy to be online and play against real people (for fake money of course). It also works well on a phone because you can choose to play a couple of quick hands if you only have a minute to kill, or you can sit down and play a whole tournament if you have a lot of time.

3 Video Games From The Last 12 Months You Might Not Have Played [MUO Gaming]

This year has been great for gaming. Even with the holiday video game rush not fully upon us, a multitude of great releases have made their way onto store shelves. The problem is, unless you are rich, it is impossible to play them all, and some games get swept under the rug and forgotten about. For some games, this is a good thing, because there is a lot of garbage out there, but for some this must be rectified.
