I'm not asking what game is the best. I'm asking what game would you play first, be it for the first time, or just to revisit some old (bettter?) times?
- Jagged Alliance - Jungle top down combat awesomeness
- X-COM: UFO Defense - Gotta say, I've never played an X-COM game
- Mickey Mania - Why can't licensed games be more like this in terms of quality?
- Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger - Wins best title of the year
- Jazz Jackrabbit - Brainchild of Young Clifford
- Marathon - First pure Mac platform shooter
- Heretic - Vertical mouse movement!
- Star Wars: TIE Fighter - Yes, TIE actually means Twin Ion Engine
- Warcraft: Orcs and Humans - The start of a legacy
- Doom II: Hell on Earth - Kinda like Doom 3, but you know, on Earth
- Mortal Kombat II - This is what sets Nintendo as the family friendly console
- Darkstalkers - EX Meter goodness
- Earthworm Jim - I've always liked using my head as a whip
- System Shock - Cyber Punk all up in yo bizniz
- Donkey Kong Country - I've always digged this series
- Super Metroid - Spoiler - he's a she
I've gotta say, I'm a sucker for all things Star Wars. TIE Fighter and the joystick times take over my gaming time for now. It was a close fight with System Shock, but George had me by the balls at this time, and he earned it at that time. And all credit this year goes to Jazz Jackrabbit for introducing the world to Young Clifford.
