Best of the 2010s

Hello. While we’ve already done one rather lengthy site retrospective so far this year, I hope you’ll permit this extra little piece of self-indulgence. With the end of the 2010s (or 10s, or whatever you call them) many chose to mark the occasion by selecting their top 10 games of the decade. My own thoughts […]

FFG Discussion Special 2019

Hello there. I hope you have had a good time over the festive season. Around this time of year, we’ve been known to publish a so-called ‘Review of the Year‘, taking a look at what we’ve been up to over the last 12 months. As a bit of a change of gear, though, this time […]

Makin’ Movies

As this kind of thing goes, A Force for Good is pretty old. In 2001 the internet was a different place, and the business of covering games for fun a relatively niche and nerdy hobby. Leaving aside the effectiveness (or not) of our early write–ups in the unforgiving modern spotlight, just putting together each review […]

FFG in 2018

Happy New Year to you all! Back by overwhelming popular demand (ok maybe not), here’s the return of our once-regular feature in which we take a quick look back at what happened on FFG over the last 12 months. My recollection is that I didn’t do one of these last year because our productivity in […]

2016: Winning so hard

Hi everyone. 2016 was generally considered to be a pretty bad year for all sorts of reasons, and as we’re probably all back to work, it seems a bit late for a retrospective. It’s days since, for example, Spotify sent me an end of year email to confirm that I basically use their premium service […]

You’re not hardcore, unless you live hardcore

Those who remember previous iterations of FFG may recall that our list of reviews used to come with a brief introduction. I thought it was quite a good feature, but by God did it cause me some trouble. After tapping out a review with relative ease, the prospect of coming up with some kind of […]

When I played…Covert Action

And so we come to the end of this anniversary series of articles. We’ve gone from a glossy video-laden epic, to a flawed movie spin-off, via whatever football or racing games happened to be cheap that week. In the last piece, it all got slightly serious as I talked a bit about Deus Ex and […]

When I played…Deus Ex

Our weekly series continues, as I take a look back at some of the games I played during the site’s first few years. If you’ve missed any of the previous pieces, go here for the first, or find them all here. Hopefully if you’ve read this far you’ve enjoyed these articles. Part four is about […]

When I played…Blade Runner

As part of the site’s 15-year anniversary, I’m doing a few articles looking back at games I covered for FFG in the early days. They’re not the usual reviews or discussion pieces but hopefully you might find them interesting. The first piece, with a bit more explanation, can be found here, and all of the […]

When I played…multiplayer games

This is the second piece of a series of articles I’m doing about some of the games I covered for FFG in our earliest days. It’s a way of looking back at those games, at the site, and at my own gaming history, as part of the site’s 15-year anniversary. The first piece, and a […]
