A quircky new Youtube video is making the waves as part of Geek Week.
Gamers have a unique and diverse culture within our society. We tend to do things a little differently, and that's why we have this corner Cinelinx set aside specifically for them. This section will feature articles dealing specifically with that culture and the integration of video games into every day life.
Video games always seem to be getting a bad reputation, and are generally considered to be a bad influence on the younger generation. So it’s always nice to see when a game is attributed to helping people, especially in terms of saving lives. That’s why I’m so excited to see this story about a boy who managed to save his brother, his grandma, and his own life...thanks to Mario Kart.
Some people love Final Fantasy VII, and some people LOVE Final Fantasy VII. This web programmer out of Australia falls into the latter category as he's begun recreating the classic game as a 2D-Demake, in the style of older SNES RPG games. Come inside to check out what he's done with it so far, and generally how aweome it looks.
I've been convinced for quite some time now that 8-bit video games can make just about anything in life better. More proof of this has come in the form of this video, showing what the latest G.I. Joe film would be like in the form of an old NES game.
Well folks, this is what it's all come down to. Forget prettier graphics and game exclusives, the real console war is about which set of gamers are better in the sack.

Apparently the Nintendo's DS is still a happening console for homebrewers who like to make their own software or games for the system. Sometimes you see something cool, and other times you see something that you desperately want to play. Such is the case today with this homebrewed version of Portal for the handheld.
Do you love retro video games, or video games in general? Ever wanted to visit a museum dedicated to such things? Well let's take that even further and see if you've ever wanted to own your own video game museum. Now you've got you chance as a man on eBay is selling his astonishingly massive video game collection (from over 30 years of collecting).
Video games and violence has become, yet again, another hot button topic as of late, which has prompted some of the most ridiculous statements we've heard from politicians so far (including one made today). In the media, the game industry and gamers on the whole can't seem to catch a break, but during an interview with Fox News, Adam Sessler sets some people straight.
With the recent shooting tragedy video games are once again getting something of a bad reputation. Personally, I think blaming games is ridiculous, but if you're still on the fence, you should check out this new indie game that's sole purpose is to educate people on the perils of bullying.
