What are the best video games of all time? I asked our team to help decide.
July 3, 2020 at 4:20 pm 0
Video game fans frequently try to crown one favorite or another as "The Best." There are tens of thousands of words scattered across the internet, all devoted to identifying the titles that represent the absolute pinnacle of games one can play.  There's also no consensus: My dull experience is another person's transcendent awakening. Even the basic definition of "best" and how it's applied to one or a list of games is open to debate.  That's why we're not having it. Instead of trying to crown a set of games as the one-size-fits-all best video games of all time, I turned to the members of Mashable's games-loving team and asked them to share what they considered the best games for them. No other context given, and no guidance as to how "best" should be measured. Just tell me your best video games, and briefly explain why.

The 15 best Netflix original series of 2020 (so far)
July 3, 2020 at 4:20 pm 0
Even in the darkest of times, our Netflix queues shine bright.  Thus far, 2020 has been a bit of a...bumpy ride. Thankfully for the Netflix-subscribed among us, the streaming service's steady offering of original series has provided some much needed consistency. Over the past six months, we've enjoyed the returns of old series favorites like Dead To Me, Ozark, and Grace & Frankie, alongside new sensations like Love Is Blind, Outer Banks, and [sigh] Tiger King. We even got more Dating Around, Queer Eye, and an interactive Kimmy Schmidt special. With many of us having more screen time thanks to stay-at-home orders, the race for Best Netflix Original Show of the Year has never been tighter. Halfway through 2020, which series do we think have a shot at clinching the title?  Read more...More about Netflix, Never Have I Ever, Ozark, Best Of 2020, and Entertainment

June 30, 2020 at 3:51 pm 0
Thus far, 2020 has an excellent track record with on-screen crushes. Over the past six months, plenty of TV and film characters have won our hearts. Whether they seduced main characters center stage or existed on the periphery as background snacks, heartthrobs of all kind have filled our screens and made an otherwise tumultuous start to the decade enjoyable. We're a long way from crowning the biggest fictional catch of 2020, but no reason we can't check-in at the halfway mark to see who has got a fighting chance.

Sacha Baron Cohen trolled a right-wing gathering with a racist sing-along
June 28, 2020 at 3:28 pm 0
Whether you love him or hate him, there's no denying that Sacha Baron Cohen gets results. The latest proof we have is a stunt that saw the comedian – a word that really fails to capture the extent of Cohen's schtick – take the stage at a rally put together by a right-wing militia group. He sang an overtly racist protest-style song and got the enthusiastic crowd to sing along. That's how he rolls. The rally was put together by a militia group that call themselves the Washington Three Percenters. The "three percenter" thing is a reference to what the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as a "dubious" claim "that only 3 percent of American colonists fought against the British during the War of Independence." The definition appears in SPLC's rundown of "antigovernment movements." Read more...More about Sacha Baron Cohen, Entertainment, Activism, and Celebrities

The 10 best TV episodes of 2020 (so far)
June 28, 2020 at 3:28 pm 0
Because time is an ever-expanding and contracting construct, we're already halfway through 2020. Sounds fake, but it's true. The first six months of this year included some stellar episodes of television, including a perfect send-off for NBC's The Good Place, a prescient and political episode of Ramy, and a Parks and Recreation reunion that addressed the coronavirus pandemic while bringing joy to its many fans. Listed here are those episodes, as well as the other seven best episodes of TV aired so far this year.  1Sex Education, "Episode 7" The best parts of Sex Education episode 207 (and indeed, of Season 2 at large) are less about sex and love and more about friendship and camaraderie. Six of the show’s female leads are locked at school a la Breakfast Club, forced to figure out what binds them together as women and concluding, heartbreakingly, that it is unwanted sexual advances. It’s fascinating to

Top Twitch streamer Dr. Disrespect was mysteriously banned from the platform
June 27, 2020 at 3:19 pm 0
Herschel "Guy" Beahm, who goes by the streamer name Dr. Disrespect, is no longer on Twitch. The circumstances of Beahm's removal from the service aren't clear at this time. His page on the Amazon-owned video streaming website is currently shut down, with a message reading "that content is unavailable." A statement provided to Mashable on Saturday by a Twitch spokesperson suggests that Beahm violated one or more community guidelines. But it isn't clear what exactly happened, or whether the removal is being characterized as a suspension or a ban. "As is our process, we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community," Twitch's statement reads. Read more...More about Twitch, Dr Disrespect, Guy Beahm, Entertainment, and Celebrities

The best stand-up comedy specials of 2020 so far
June 26, 2020 at 3:09 pm 0
Watching stand-up in 2020 very quickly went from a pretty fun and normal activity to an escape from our terrifying, oppressive reality. Luckily, there has been some truly fantastic comedy so far this year, giving us an excuse to laugh and smile at stories and observations from some of the industry's most talented performers. It is a bit odd, though, to view these specials — which were filmed before the COVID-19 lockdown began in the U.S. in March — knowing everything that has followed this year (so far). We're living in a time when jokes can become dated very quickly, and that feeling only seems to have ramped up after March. In her special, Leslie Jones jokes about how 20 year olds shouldn't be out marching for anything, they should be living their lives. That might have been a fine joke earlier in the year, but amid the civil upheaval happening across
