Games to Try Before You Die: Sim City (PC, SNES)

At some point in time, when this game came out...everyone went from "I want to be a Firefighter dad!" to "I want to be a city planner dad!" I'm not really sure how many people became city planners because of this game, but there has to be at least one or two. Who would have thought that adjusting city tax, building residential and commercial zones, would be fun? Well it was, and still is.

Games To Try Before You Die: Super Mario 3D World

Yes...I know...this game is barely 2 weeks old, but it had to be mentioned. I have owned a WiiU for about 3 months (I think...) now and I have loved the system since I got it. I have mentioned many times, "Try before you judge" on this system, and I still stand by that statement. I've been waiting for a REALLY GOOD game to stumble upon this system...and that has happened.

Games to Try Before You Die: Legend of Zelda-Wind Waker (Gamecube/WiiU)

Recently I bought a Nintendo WiiU...so far, the game console is really fun! I really only have one game for the thing, but it has been around for quite a few years now. Zelda has always been some of the most top notch games in gaming history (Ocarina of Time being my favorite), and many people saw this game originally and though, "WTF?!?!" Until they played it...

Games To Try Before You Die: Super Mario Bros. (NES)

I have been doing these GTTBYD posts for quite some time now, and I never even thought about posting this one. THE GAME THAT STARTED IT ALL! Well, it didn't really start 'it' all but it did create a international icon and changed the way gaming was played forever. When you got your NES game console, you were treated with Duck Hunt and the classic...Super Mario Bros.

Games To Try Before You Die: Q-Bert (Arcade/Atari/etc.)

In the 1980's, video games only required 2 people to program a single game. Nowadays, they require a team of over 1000 to produce one game! The cool thing though about a single programmer, is that they can come up with some weird stuff. Like a fluffy ball thing with legs and a large tubular nose.

Games To Try Before You Die: Resident Evil 3 (PSX/Dreamcast/etc)

Resident Evil 2 is still my favorite RE game of all time, but 3 is a very close second. During the PSX era, there was a ton of amazing games coming out, and most of those today are considered classic games (I never want to think of something I grew up with as "classic")! Resident Evil 3 Nemesis is the last RE game on PSX, so how does it hold up?

Games To Try Before You Die: Mortal Kombat II (Multi-Platform)

Mortal Kombat, the first game where you could decapitate someone. Isn't that just awesome? Mortal Kombat became a HIGHLY successful game in the arcades and home consoles. When a game sells over a million copies, what does that mean to developer? LET'S MAKE A SEQUEL! With way more blood, and more gruesome deaths!

Games To Try Before You Die: Road Rash (Saturn, 3DO)

I have play what seems like all of the Road Rash games. My favorite has always been Road Rash 2 on Sega Genesis (and in many ways, it still is). That classic soundtrack and the split-screen 2 player is awesome. However, I dug out my old Sega Saturn and grabbed a copy of Road Rash for it.

Games To Try Before You Die: F-Zero X (Nintendo 64)

When the Nintendo 64 showed up on the scene, we got some great 3D platforming games. Super Mario 64, Conkers Bad Fur Day, Donkey Kong 64, etc. We also got a TON of racing games! That little analog stick on the controller worked great for racers, especially the futuristic racer, F-Zero X.

Games To Try Before You Die: Splatterhouse 2 (Genesis)

Video games and violence seem to be a match made in heaven (or hell...whatever works best.) Violent video games have been around since video games were even created. When most think of a violent video game today, they think headshots, guns, grenades, and maybe a chainsaw. We forget though, before we grabbed a gun in a video game, we grabbed 2x4's with rusty nails, lead pipes, and the good ol' fist! SPLATTERHOUSE!

Games To Try Before You Die: Star Fox 64 (Nintendo 64)

The original Star Fox was revolutionary for it's time, with the super awesome SUPER FX CHIP! Well, nowadays the SUPER FX CHIP looks like crap, but it was still fun. So obviously a sequel was planned for Star Fox named 'Star Fox 2.' We waited, waited, and waited....and it never came out! Good...because of that, Star Fox 64 arrived!

Games To Try Before You Die: Alan Wake (Xbox 360)

A Games to Try Before You Die that is not a retro game?!?! WHAT?!?! Well I like new games too ya know...This is a game that many people shoved to the side, and that is just sad. With a video game market clogged by FPS' and MMO's, what happened to the classic survival horror thriller? Silent Hill is my most frightening game with disturbing visuals and stuff, and then this one came around and proved you don't need gallons of blood to freak you out.
