FPS of the Year – Before All The Good Shit

This one’s going to be a little different and here’s why. So once again, I thought I would start in 1990. I mean, that seems to be a pretty good year to start with and it worked with everything else, so why not? I’LL TELL YOU WHY NOT. Wolfenstein 3D wasn’t even released until 1992. BUT that’s not to say there weren’t FPSs before then. So let’s briefly go over…those that came before.

Brawler of the Year – 1990

This time around I’m only going to highlight one game per year. While that may not seem very inclusive the fact is there are some years where there aren’t any officially licensed brawlers at all. Remember that the box pictures have vids embedded if you want to see them in action. The definition of a brawler has become somewhat vague, so as it stands, here’s my running definition, subject to change at any time:

Adventure Game of the Year – 1990

This time around I will changing things up a bit. I will only be doing a top 3 for each year and I’m hoping that will suffice as some years have barely any adventure titles released. I’m also trying to be as accurate as possible, which is proving to be difficult considering most of these are labeled either incorrectly or in poor chronological order on Wiki. In fact, let me know if something’s out of place or missing on these as I’ve been updating their “official” list with THEIR OWN INFORMATION…so yeah.

The first adventure game I ever played was Maniac Mansion with my favorite series still probably being Monkey Island. Once again, I will attempt, to the best of my ability, to produce when each game came out in America and on what systems. I’m also hoping I can have youtube vids embeded in the pics for each title as well as the box art. There were 13 titles this year, so let’s get started.

RPG of the Year – 1990

It occurred to me while writing my article way way back about how I’ll remember Final Fantasy that it probably wasn’t fair to leave out so many great RPGs. Then I realized, if I did that, goddamn that would have been a ridiculously long article. Then again, it was already pretty long, so why not figure out which were the BEST. Yes, I realize this would be in my opinion, but at the very least I can highlight them, give a top 5 for the year, and the runner ups.
