"Unoriginal" is an interesting complaint to have about that game.

Re: your favorite FMV game?

I'm not sure I would count Mansion of the Hidden Souls (great game) as FMV as there is really no FMV to speak of. It's all computer-rendered (no live action). Video is video. It has nothing to do with whether the video was filmed or animated. The game streams Cinepak files off a disk; they don't tu...

Re: Remembering the mostly forgettable average games. (Or at least trying to.)

http://i.imgur.com/UMSR2cF.jpg Midway's Off-Road Challenge was a corny, mediocre arcade game and thoroughly laughable ported to the N64. Of course, I played that cartridge to death. When you're a kid, monster truck racing is monster truck racing, especially if it's loaded with brainless cheese. I'l...

Re: your favorite FMV game?

I recently found out about Kingdom: The Far Reaches (originally the almost-unreleased Thayer's Quest on Laserdisc). I'm not sure that it looks good, but it seems intriguingly ambitious for an FMV game.

Re: What Games Are We Thankful For?

I never got around to playing the follow-up game Skullmonkeys, though, or the recent spiritual successor Armikrog. Any thoughts on those ones, Stalvern? Skullmonkeys is fun but very ordinary in comparison. It's basically a clay Donkey Kong Country with goofy cutscenes. Armikrog is a hot mess. I rev...

Re: Is anyone else ever nostalgic for bad graphics?

Have you ever seen LSD Simulator? It's just a walking simulator from the 90's, but nobody ever complained, because the bizarre and mostly terrible graphics did such a great job of making people uncomfortable. LSD: Dream Emulator . Yep! Got some lovely pictures of that one saved too, and I considere...

Re: Thrill Kill (unreleased PS1)

If the VGC does review the Wu-Tang game, he needs to play it with the Wu-Tang controller that was bundled with it.
