Five years in the making, Red Dead Redemption II is every bit the epic sequel you'd expect from Rockstar, the publisher of all those crazy Grand Theft Auto games.

I owe of debt of gratitude to the reader who recently brought this to my attention, because NCAA Football 98 is truly a joy to play. The intro features video footage with computer "enhancements" that actually make it much harder to watch. I like hearing a band play over the main menu, but...
