Games To Try Before You Die: House of the Dead (Saturn/Arcade)
Rail shooters were all the rage back in the day man, just shoot everything in sight! Typical games like Virtua Cop, Lethal Enforcers, Time Crisis are still fun in the arcades today. Nothing was as awesome and bloody as the original House of the Dead!
What: House of the Dead was a game made for Sega Saturn and specifically arcades. You play as either Thomas Rogan or “G” to put a stop to a madman who has risen an undead army to unleash on the world! (Which seems like a popular scenario today…)
Why: The graphics in today’s standards are really horrible…but if we look past the graphic capabilities…this game is quite fun. This was one of the first games that allowed you to chose your path, depending on what you did in the game, which was pretty freakin’ awesome. If you are a zombie fan and want a hardcore challenge for yourself, check this one out for sure.
