This 1995, Japan-only release is a game that begins fairly un-remarkably, but quickly opens up to become one of the most interesting and visually exciting action platform games on the SNES.
This third game in the Atlus Etrian Odyssey series is a serious contender for the best RPG of all time. It is just so beautiful and so detailed and so well constructed that I haven’t got anything negative to say about it. Other than it is rock hard!
Dan Gorlin‘s Typhoon Thompson in Search For the Sea Child is a smart little title to play in an emulator now, although you do have to get the controls right to enjoy it properly. It’s a mouse and keyboard game but can be gotten to work with a joypad, if you’re persistent.
This grab is as good as any to start off with. I love the colour and composition in this Operation Wolf PC Engine screenshot.
World Class Leaderboard on the Commodore 64 is one of my favourite games of all time, but I’m not really much of a golf fan. This goes some way to demonstrating just how GOOD this game is.
Taito‘s Chase HQ is an intense arcade driving game where you chase down criminals and have to bash them into submission with your vehicle.
Swords and Sorcery by PSS is an early RPG that was way ahead of its time (it having been first released in 1985), and also surprisingly tense and feature-packed, considering that it fit in to only 48K of memory.
Namco‘s We Love Katamari on the PlayStation 2 is one of the most imaginative games ever made!
