Side Arms
Earth's future in intergalactic relations, if video games are to be believed, can be summed up thusly: We're the neutral, laissez faire good guys. The aliens are convinced that our otherwise mundane existence …

NHL '94
It's a very off fact of gaming that there are so many sports video games that are good, but yet so few that become transcendent - memorable years after their initial releases and played fondly for many …

Ah, I remember the good old days, sitting in front of the TV, playing the old Sega Genesis, awesome games like Sonic the Hedgehog, Shining Force 2, and the NHL series, spectacularly losing my battle against …

Super Mario Bros. 3
Many gamers consider this the best game in the NES library, and while I won't say that since I don't think I've played a wide enough array of games for that console to come up with such a …

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
You know what I hate about trendsetting games? The fact that they set trends. When the new hip character cashes in, everyone begins copying the formula with the hopes of cashing in themselves. So while …

Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Before I get on with the review, I have to share some nostalgia with you. I believe my first encounter with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was at the nearest Wal-Mart back in the late summer/early fall of 1992 …

I'll admit that whenever I think of this game, I do get pretty nostalgic over it since this was really the first videogame I ever got heavily engrossed in, since I got this at the age of four on Christmas …

Ya gotta love the brawler! The most stupidly fun genre of gaming during the 16-bit era, brawlers were everything video games were meant to exemplify back then: Walking around, just beating the living …

The legacy of Super Mario Bros. 2 is an odd one. On the one hand, it helped permanently define the Mario canon - the ability to pick up and throw enemies is in there in large part because of Super Mario …

Mega Man 3
Mega Man kept on rolling in the 90s from the 80s with Mega Man 3.  To me at this point, each game was an improvement over the other.  Maybe the soundtrack isn't as memorable as Mega Man …

A trip down Super Nintendo Memory Lane isn't complete without remembering this gem.  Super Metroid was another one of those crowning jewels in the SNES library that will cement it as one of …

Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.... Wait, those last two are no good. So how about this: Sonic, he can really move, Sonic, …

When gaming fist got off the ground again Nintendo pretty much dominated the world of gaming and Mario had become a more recognizable icon than Mickey Mouse at that time.  Seeing an opportunity to …

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
When the Super Nintendo came out in the early 90's many games that were big on the NES were remade or had sequels that were bigger and better over they're 8 bit counterparts.  Gradius, Castlevania, …

Super Mario Kart for the SNES is the first and some would say STILL the greatest in what started the Mario Kart racing franchise.  It was my first SNES game and I still find it dear.   …

This is certainly a Nintendo classic, but the 8-bit graphics look a bit dated. It just pales in comparison even to the SNES Super Metroid (much less the Prime series). If you want side-scrolling Metroid, …

I have fond memories of beating Super Metroid on Super Nintendo. The graphics were amazing for its time (and still hold up on medium-sized TVs). The amount of detail and complexity of the planet Zebes …

2600 hertz is the frequency of a Captain Crunch cereal prize whistle that motivated nerdy kids of the 1960's to hack telecommunications systems.  What a perfect call sign for the machine that defined …

For those who know me, you'll have to bear with me for a moment as once again we talk about the historical significance of a video game.  Mario himself needs no introduction.  He single-handedly …
