Grand Theft Auto Series

GTA has been an interesting series that I’ve had a love/hate relationship with for many years. For many, when they say GTA, they’re referring to GTA3, 4, or possibly something along the line of San Andreas or Vice City. To avoid any confusion, I’m looking at the series as a whole and dishing out what I think, for better or worse.

FPS of the Year – 1992

So yeah, I decided to talk about 1992 after all. 1992 is a year you should familiarize yourself with when it comes to gaming. Sure, there were a lot of cool things going on in the console world, but the PC gaming market was especially interesting. I already briefly went over Terminator 2029 and Gun Buster, so let’s go over what ELSE came out this year.

Under the Scope – Music

Ever since the original Super Mario Bros., we’ve been treated to music in videogames. Well…before then as well, but I wanted to put something out there you could see, nod your head at, and move onward without getting totally lost. Not to sound conceited, but there are any one of a number of other titles that came out before Mario that have done the same, but you probably don’t know what…oh my Jesus I sound like a hipster so I better stop.

Under the Scope – Clothes

In my Under the Scope series, I take a look at a specific item, commonly used character, or whatever and expound upon it in ways we as gamers may not have previously thought about. Sometimes it’s just something that’s been bothering me and other times it might be something of an epiphany that I want to share.

Adventure Game of the Year – 1994

Surprisingly, this year there were only 10 games and only about half of them were good. This was also the year of the second worst King’s Quest game ever, the absolute worst being Mask of Eternity. It was a tough call for the #3 spot also. #2 and #1 were pretty easy to pick, though. Let’s do it!

RPG of the Year – 1992

This time around I noticed there are more console titles and the SNES especially is getting a good start. Unfortunately, most of those titles don’t belong on a top 5 list. Sure, games like Mystic Quest and Soul Blazer are fun, but out of all the rest? Ha, no. Not too surprisingly, there are a lot of great PC RPGs this time around, making it pretty hard to call it in some cases. There are 22 titles this time, so let’s hop into it!
