    Hello and welcome to the final part of our Most Ambitious Games countdown! Very few games these days are made with noteworthy ambition; not many set out to do something large, complex, detailed, and distinct. This countdown is dedicated to games that do try and succeed at such things.

    We began this countdown two months ago with numbers 15 to 11, and continued last month with numbers 10 to 6. Now we break down the top 5 most ambitious games at all time.




    Starting things off is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the game that is responsible for the resurgence of open world game design. Like its predecessors ...

    The purpose of Steam Workshop has now become clear. What was once a community service has now turned into a scamming service. Valve, the creators of Steam as well as award-winning PC games such as Half Life, Left 4 Dead, Counter Strike, and DotA 2, has just announced a new "service" which allows them to put a price tag on community-made modifications (more specifically, the modders/uploaders have this choice). The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the first game stricken with ...

    Last Month we started a countdown for the most ambitious video games of all time, and today we are continuing that countdown. Ambition is rare and under-appreciated, but some games are truly ambitious and they deserve recognition. Scroll to the next page to begin our top 10!




    Another classic RPG makes our list, starting off our top ten. Planescape: Torment captures our number ten spot. It was developed by Black Isle Studios in 1999, who so far have two other entries on our list.

    Planescape: Torment is an Infinity Engine game, like Baldur's Gate, and ...

    High ambition is both undervalued and very rare in the gaming industry. There is a serious lack of effort and innovation, with most games being small scale, one dimensional, repetitive, unimpressive, and unoriginal products that are rushed out in order to sell as many copies as possible. Not many studios set out to do something truly original, to do something great, to make their dreams come true. But when developers actually do make such games, amazing things can happen. This article is dedicated to such games; the most ambitious games of all time. Large scale games that ...

    Torment: Tides of Numenera is InXile's upcoming RPG. They released Wasteland 2 last year, which turned out to be one of the best RPGs not only in 2014 but in recent years. It was a throwback to classic RPGs like its predecessor as well as Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout: Tactics, and stands out as being one of very few hardcore modern RPGs. Wasteland 2 presents a thoughtful, very significant skill system, a complex attribute system, party dialogue system similar to Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir, and plenty of freedom to role-play in the story, leading to many different outcomes and even premature endings. InXile did a fantastic job with Wasteland 2.

    But like every other game, Wasteland 2 has its faults. It has serious pacing issues; we found it to be addicting for the first 35-40 hours or so, but then it dreadfully drags on later in the game, with main quests being reduced to menial tasks. Wasteland 2 also lacks a strong story; although the dialogue is often ...

    Welcome to the official 2014 Game of the Year ceremony of GND-Tech! 2014 was a refreshingly great year for gaming, definitely the best since 2010. There were a number of absolutely amazing games released this year, including what might be the greatest game ever made.

    The gaming industry seriously lacks good, critical reviewers with good judgement. Most other media outlets will give out awards to games based purely on popularity, but GND-Tech is one of the only exceptions. This industry is backwards with many of the highest rated games being inferior, and often terrible games designed for people with no intellect and no attention span. But here at GND-Tech, we recognize and value effort, good ideas, thought-provoking and challenging games. We scold rehashed, generic, low quality games which dominate the industry. Only the very best games are winners here. See our article here to see how critical and true we are. Compare that to the reasoning that most sites gave for awarding Alien: Isolation game of the year: they talked almost exclusively about how it's actually an authentic alien game and how it was made by RTS developers, and called it game of the year based on those two things. How on earth this decides what is game of the year is beyond us, but you won't see such nonsense here.

    Scroll on to the next page to see the awards and the winners!



    Mod of the Year - Overhaul

    Before getting into the actual games, we'd like to start off this ceremony with our Mod of the Year choice. For this award, we're looking specifically at normal, but large scale mods designed to drastically improve a game. FakeFactory Cinematic Mod wins this award, as we celebrate the final release of a mod that we've all loved for years. It is an overhaul mod for Half Life 2, ...

    Hello GND readers, we've decided to continue our series of Mod Guides, this time with Total War: Rome II!

    As you may or may not know, Rome II actually has a thriving modding community with a freely available SDK and Workshop Integration, making modding a very, very easy task.


    If you trust my every word and have complete faith in the my mod choices without even looking at them you can go right over to my Steam Workshop collection and subscribe to them all, but make sure you read my description: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=377915478



    This guide contains personal recommendations and essential mods for playing Rome II. Many of these can be added in mid-playthrough but a handful of them will only take effect upon starting a new game. So this guide is best used when starting for the first time or starting a new playthough.

    *Note* These mods work best when you have all DLC but will function just fine without them unless stated otherwise.

    ChampLoos Gold Unit Compilation

    This mod adds hundreds new units to the rosters of varying armies in the game. New beast models and armor textures will give your armies much greater variety and variation. ...

    It's that time of the year again. With Halloween right around the corner, we thought it appropriate to do another horror-themed article. Last year around this time, we made an article about the ten scariest moments in video game history. This year's is simple: what are the top ten best horror games ever made, and why? Scroll on to the next page to start the countdown!

    To get an idea of the things we look for in games, take a look at the forum threads and articles linked below. Although they aren't tailored to the horror genre specifically, much of the content discussed still applies.

    We don't consider shooters like Dead Space, Resident Evil 5, or Resident Evil 6 to be horror games. They're just shooters with monsters. Even Resident Evil 4 is primarily a shooter, and survival horror is secondary. We also despise B-movie horror techniques featured prominently in games like Outlast and Slender.



    Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason starts off our top 10 list. It's a highly underrated PC exclusive horror game developed by Action Forms, a Ukrainian studio, and it was released in 2009. You take on the role of Alexander Nesterov ...
