Due to our own failings, there may be a large portion of our readers who are unaware of some of our series we have here on TechRaptor. They range from our satire series KekRaptor to a more academic approach about the genre of Role-Playing Games. We wanted to rectify that problem, so we created pages detailing all of our highlighted series. You can find the banners linking to them on our sidebar.
Every time a new article in a respective series is published, the page will be updated accordingly. So if you missed something, you can come back and check!
Here’s a quick rundown of each of our highlighted series:
Bullet Points takes a look at one specific, unique aspect about a game discussing its overall significance to the game as a whole and often its significance outside of it as well. You can check out all of our Bullet Points articles, as well as more info on the series, here.
The goal of Character Select is to showcase some of video gaming’s best characters. There are many icons of gaming and many characters we all hold dear, but why is that so? What is it about certain characters that we like or enjoy? You can check out all of our Character Select articles, as well as more info on the series, here.
Diary of Death is a thematic narrative retelling of an entire campaign of the boutique nightmare horror boardgame Kingdom Death: Monster.

Some games are great, but others are memorable for all time.

In a world of AAA franchises and smash hit indie titles, a lot of games get lost in the shuffle once released.

Playing Roles hopes to analyze the history and culture of video game RPGs, looking at tropes, mechanics, the philosophy of design, and even some retrospectives of classic RPG titles. As an academic series, it also hopes to challenge the notion of what a role-playing game is, offering a new thesis in how RPGs have a lot in common, despite their different mechanics, settings, and play styles.

Rewind Reviews is our series where we look back at older games through a modern lens and put them through our review process. We’ve looked at obscure games, classics, and more, across many different systems. You can check out all of our Rewind Reviews, as well as more info on the series, here.
