I know what some of you are thinking. "Why would you ever listen to music when you can enjoy the lovely soundtracks video games have to offer?" That's a fair point, and I used to agree with that.

With another month comes another collection of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and April's big ticket items on PlayStation 4 might appeal to those seeking high octane thrills.

The game, released in 2015 following the critically acclaimed Fury Road film, features extensive vehicular combat and customization.

Off a similar tangent comes the other free game in the form of Trackmania Turbo, where you can race for the best time off impossibly designed tracks or build your own! See the two in action in the video after the jump.

It's not that often that the UK's Video Standards Council refuses a game a rating, effectively banning it in the country. In fact, prior to this week it hadn't happened since Manhunt 2 was refused classification back in 2007, over a decade ago. That streak was just broken by Omega Labyrinth Z, an RPG that features school girls in a variety of sexually explicit scenarios.

One of the downsides to the launch of a new console generation is that support for older consoles begins to get phased out. This process may ultimately take a while to fully play out, but it will inevitably happen.

While I didn't play all the major games that released in 2017, I did get to finish every single one that I had been anticipating since announcement. Gigantic franchises such as Persona, The Legend of Zelda, and Resident Evil received new installments this year. However, a smaller title told a story of sixteen high school students and a demonic teddy bear in 2017, and it was the most captivating experience I've had with video games all year.
