About Hard 4 Games

Hard 4 Games is a group of Detroiters who started out by gaming in their parent's basement and taping it. In 2009 they decided to bring their reviews, personality, and NBA JAM to the unwashed masses of the internet realm. For Hard 4 Games, gaming is more than a hobby, they firmly believe that from AAA shovelware to indie hipster hell, there's always more to gaming than just the game!
