games to try before you die

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 nos…
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 E…
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, an…
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…
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 ou…
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 …
Games To Try Before You Die: Pokemon Red/Blue (Game Boy)
Where do you even begin with this game? I mean, c'mon....it's freakin' POKEMON! Back when this game came out, there were a few fans who read Nintendo Power and knew what it was all about, but it wasn't until you heard about it on the playground or word of mouth...and this simple …
Games To Try Before You Die: Killer Instinct (SNES)
Fighting games were amazing back in the 90's! Just that simple 1 vs 1 formula worked so well in the arcades. We didn't have to start fight on the street, we started fights on the arcade machines. The standard for fighting games at the time was either Street Fighter II or Mortal Kombat. But…
Games To Try Before You Die: Ms. Pac-Man (Arcade/etc.)
Where did it all begin? The Arcades. Those large dark rooms with kids, mom's, dad's, businessmen, were pumping quarters into large machines so they could get the highest of high scores on that game. Arcade's are not as popular as they used to be, but they are still fun to go too. Chances are though,…
Games To Try Before You Die: Final Fantasy VIII (PSX)
Final Fantasy...what else is there to say? This series has been around what seems like forever. It has it's highs, and it's lows...most of those in my opinion is anything beyond Final Fantasy 10. Anyway, the Final Fantasy's on the PSX were amazing games! FF VII broke the mold, and FF IX was an amazi…
