Hello, I’m Christopher Brahm, also known on most gaming platforms as Jumpropeman!
The Game Hoard was inspired by my ever-expanding enormous game collection and my wide range of playing video games from all the different genres across many platforms. The goal is exactly as the tagline reads: play every video game ever released! Along the way I shall also be giving my thoughts on the games I have played so that others may benefit from this journey. On this site, you can expect to see a few series consistently, as well as the occasional unique feature when an idea strikes me.
The main series you can expect to see include:
While not indicated in the title, a Regular Review features the game’s title and system as well as a description of what you can expect in the game. These reviews are meant to tell you what a game is trying to do and whether it pulled it off successfully, and will make up the bulk of The Game Hoard’s coverage. These used to be split into A Glance at the Past and A Look at the Latest, but those names weren’t really futureproofed.
Each review series will have a different name in the title, such as Week of Love or The Haunted Hoard, and they’ll contain reviews with similar themes as part of a special series. These can be based on all kinds of things like holidays, series, themes, or consoles, so keep a look out for new series all the time!
In Disaster Report, I will be taking a video game that is particularly awful and deconstructing it in an extended format. Expect any game in one of these blogs to be the worst of the worst and to get utterly torn apart for being so.
For bad games, there’s Disaster Report. For the best games, there’s Quality Time. In this style of article, an in-depth look at a fantastic game will let you see just what makes it such an amazing example of what video games have to offer.
A new series may pop up at any time! Check back here to see if any new features have been added to the site, and rest assured, I’m already imagining a few for the future!
Currently, The Game Hoard hopes to have a minimum of one review a week, but the output is dependent on the games being played. Games can vary in length drastically, meaning some reviews take much longer to research and write. If possible, The Game Hoard will try to have at least 10 different game reviews in a month.
Besides describing and evaluating the games featured, I will also be giving them a rating on a scale of my own creation. Number scales are improperly weighed these days due to the industry trend towards undervaluing high numbers and making the midpoint not actually the middle. Instead, I decided to make this rather common sense scale by which I’ll judge every game on this blog!
1: The video game must have been released to the public in some form as a complete product. Cancelled titles, personal projects, hacks, flash games, and so on aren’t counted unless they one day meet this criteria.
2: Ports and remakes count as the same game in the goal unless they have considerable differences. For example: I would not need to play the PC, PS4, and Xbox One versions of Assassin Creeds Origins, I’d only need to play one of them. However, Metroid: Samus Returns is a considerably different game then the game it’s a remake of, Metroid II: Return of Samus, and both games would need to be played. Also, games like Sonic Colors where the Wii game and DS game have considerably different styles of play would both need to be played.
