GTAIV, Braid top Time's best games of 2008

While gamers probably won't be flocking to Time for its list of the top 10 games of 2008, there's little doubt that the list will wind up under the scrutiny of plenty of non-gamers. The list is part of the "Top 10 of Everything of 2008' feature, which includes lots of top 10s, including things...

Big black Xbox makes Time's list of top Microsoft moments

Oh yes, the original Xbox in all its VCR-looking glory. She was a big beast, solid like a rock and had a controller (a Duke controller) that doubled as a serving tray. Yes, the launch of the original Xbox was a milestone for Microsoft and an important enough event to warrant its place at #8 in...

Xbox Phat makes Time's 'Microsoft Moments'

The original Xbox was no toy. It weighed more than your kid. The controller brought new meaning to "man hands" -- the darn thing was known as the "Duke," after all. In short, this was a man's console. And what could be manlier than a "mankind-vs-aliens space opera," its featured launch title? Time...

Wii Warm Up: Investing some time

This one is easy: how much time do you spend playing Wii in a week? We make sure we get at least one session in each and every week, thanks to Game Night, but maybe you're not chained to a radiator in somebody's basement, forced to blog for hours and hours on end. Enough about us, though (please,...

Rock Band creators make the 2008 Time 100 list

Buffeted by presidents, presidential hopefuls, titans of industry, and the occasional blogger on this year's Time 100 – a list of, well, those sorts of people – are Alex Rigopulos and Eran Egozy, better known to you all as "those Harmonix guys." While Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto came...

Miyamoto is your Time Person of the Year

We all made it happen. The man, the myth, the legend himself, Shigeru Miyamoto, has crushed the competition on the voting block and secured his rightful place at the top of the list for Time Person of the Year. Of course, this doesn't actually mean he's going to be on the cover of Time magazine, but...

Miyamoto voted 'Your' Time Person of the Year

You did it! You helped beat out politicians, celebs, scientists, babes, a funny man, and even a weather-oriented Korean pop star. You've nominated fitness guru Shigeru Miyamoto as Time's (not officially Time's) most influential person of the year. Sure, this may appear to be just another pointless...

Shigeru Miyamoto back for round two -- nominated for 2008 Time 100

We imagine that Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of some of the most recognizable intellectual properties on the planet, doesn't like coming in second place -- let alone ninety-second place. Unfortunately for the banjo-plucking game designer, that was the case in last year's Time 100 list, when Shiggy,...

Miyamoto nominated again for Time 100

It's that time of year again, folks -- the point at which we implore you to help us shamelessly rig an internet poll so that Nintendo design guru and all-round hero Shigeru Miyamoto can climb as high as possible in Time magazine's list of the year's most influential people. The Shigster is...
