If you talk to any hardcore PC fan, one of the things they will eventually tout is the "superiority" of the mouse and keyboard. But there are plenty of gamers who, for various reasons, don't or won't play games on PC unless they're using a controller.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is officially landing on the Switch next week. It's not an overhaul of the traditional MK8 formula, but Nintendo has shown they are open to improving a classic.
So if you had the choice, how would you improve Mario Kart?
If you were to do a quick straw poll and ask everyone what their favourite Mass Effect character was, it's not hard to guess what the top result would be: Garrus. Everyone loves him, most people want to bang him, and he's definitely an asset in any squad.
So to spin things around a bit, let's ask the reverse: what's the worst character in the whole series?
Yesterday we did a quick whip around the office asking people what their favourite game was for every year they've been alive. For me, it started from 1987 with a DOS version of Operation Wolf that I'm pretty sure was pirated from Singapore somewhere; that's where my Dad used to buy games whenever the ship had to go into drydock.
But to go in depth a little deeper: out of that list, what's your favourite game of them all?
And by 'how' I mean 'where' and 'when'?
Personally I'm loving the Switch. Mainly because it's a Zelda machine and I like Zelda very much. Like Kirk Hamilton, I'm finding it difficult to separate my enjoyment of the Switch from my love of Zelda, but the ability to take this thing wherever I go is a genuine life enhancer.
Nothing ever goes according to plan. Maybe you die in a desert full of horrifying demons, and you think your loot is gone for good. Maybe you find yourself lost in space. Maybe you accidentally punch the wrong person. Regardless, you need help. When have other players come to your rescue in a video game?
For the last week or so, there's been a copy of Boss Monster sitting on the living room table at home. It's a card/tabletop game where you build a dungeon and fight off adventures who wander through, laying traps and using items to stymie their gold-hunting ways.
There's so many board and tabletop games released these days, and there's never enough time to play them all. But it got me thinking: what are your favourites?
