The Angry Video Game Nerd has been playing video games that have been torturing him for years! This time though, AVGN goes after a console that many people loved and a game that many people have either forgotten or never heard of.
However, I have heard of it, and it stars Leonard Nimoy.
Sega was a juggernaut back in the 1990's, and I still love the Sega Genesis! It's one of my favorite video game consoles.
Over the years though, Sega has had some major downfalls, specifically the latest Sonic the Hedgehog games.
However, they want to win you back.
Being a '90's kid, I can't help but remember my childhood, which felt like it ended on December 31, 1999. After that date, everything felt older ya know?
If you listen to me on air or read any of my blogs, you'll know that I am quite the gamer. Before you were Playstation or Xbox...
You were either Sega or Nintendo.
I knew that the time would come where I would have to list my favorite video game consoles of all time.
I spend a lot of my time on WGRD.com writing about video games and heavy metal.
I will say that I spend more time writing about video games though, because I love them...
Playing NBA Jam on Sega Genesis is still one of the funnest things that I do with friends. For pretty much my entire life, I played only 2 player games with my friend Jon. Until we discovered the 4 player adapter later in life that allowed 4 players to play on screen.
If you think Halo or Call of Duty is crazy fun, you haven't played NBA Jam 4 Player on Sega Genesis.
In the early '90's, a very strange video game by the name of Toejam & Earl came out for Sega Genesis. You played as either ToeJam or Earl, or played 2 player Co-op and played as ToeJam & Earl. Through it's crazy exterior, it is one of the funnest games of all time!
The first game garnered 2 sequels, and has been missing from the gaming landscape for a long time.
Now, the original creator a
Remember Earthworm Jim? Aero the Acrobat? Bubsy the Bobcat? Rocket Knight? What ever happened to this strange creativity? These games were a blast! Well, maybe not all of them, but the definitely left a mark on video game history don't you think?
Last night I hooked up my Sega Dreamcast and played some video games. My friend Bruce had a new game that he wanted to try so I broke it out. When I opened the disc door, I noticed I left a game in there. It was KISS Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child. After we played his game, I played it for a bit and realized that it did have a lot more potential. The game is just really awkward.
Sega Genesis was always considered the 'big boys' gaming console back in the 90's. With it's sleek black look, shiny exterior, and balls to wall games...Super Nintendo was just a babies toy (I beg to differ...) I was fortunate to own both of these game consoles growing up, but played my SNES more. There was a game I played quite a bit on Sega though, and that was the strange game known as ToeJam
25 years...that is a long time am I right? What were you doing 25 years ago? Were you even born yet? I was born in 1987 (making me 26 years old), and my first game console was the NES. I loved that little grey box...it introduced me to the 8-Bit world! Mario, TMNT, Back to the Future...you name it, Nintendo had it! As I got older, I wanted more awesome graphics, and a neighbor (my friend of over 2
