I was speaking more of the games, personally. Silent Hill 2 is one of my all-time favorite games, ever. Resident Evil games tend to be a once through and you know where the dogs are going to pop through the window. Too much reliance on cheap scares, then the same engine over and over until 4. The se...

Always been more a Silent Hill man myself, but the first RE movie was alright. Never saw the others, though.

I assume you're looking for adventure games. They don't really happen on consoles anymore except in freak occurences. There were a fair few more back on the Playstation (Blazing Dragons, Discworld 2) but they've fallen way out of vogue with the console crowd. Off the top of my head, I can't think of...

Had to be done. You can see the manga and more recent games are in my walk-in closet, but you don't see the rest of the boxes. All the consoles, peripherals... creap, a box of controllers higher than your waist, powergloves hanging off the shelves, you name it. I had a big store. Before that, I had ...

Real Pinball and Fire Ball are the same exact game. And yeah, Hell. The concept was nifty and the plot twist at the end was pure awesome, but getting there required really soul numbing fetch quests and bizarrely-conceived logic puzzles. The only thing worthwhile until the last fifteen minutes of gam...

You know, I didn't like this game on the first pass for the "no real story" reasoning, which has always struck me as kind of essential to an rpg. But it grew on me. It was quirky and I think a little groundbreaking with stuff that has since become common in games like Final Fantasy Tactics. Also, Sh...

Star Fighter! Loved it, thought the missions WERE a bit generic, sorry. I could never get into that "It's all just a simulation" within a simulation stuff. Always seemed a copout to explain the somewhat rough graphics when 3D gaming was still working on being pretty. Apparently the original version ...

Talk about your loaded questions... For my money... yeah, let me explain this. I played BC Racers on the SegaCD, where gameplay was considered more optional than on a lot of the lesser 3DO games, so BC Racers didn't come off as especially bad compared to some of those little nuggets. PDWT had a blon...

Duelin' Firemen was indeed a cancelled game, developed by a company that went on to make a few hit GBA games. It was likely to be really bad, but the FMV promised cheesy goodness. It starred Rudy Ray Moore of Dolemite fame, and another extremely talented and charismatic actor as his... rival, I thin...

The way I figure it, one of you is eventually going to slip up and list an address.
