The painted-on crowds in these stadiums are almost as egregious as the fact that this game didn't shell out the bucks to acquire the NFL license. But even still, what red-blooded American doesn't like to kick back and watch a good contest between "Foxboro" and "Charlotte"?
The South Park video game was probably one of the most confusing gaming decisions ever made. Think about it: The show's animation style lends itself perfectly to a 2D sidescroller, but instead the people at Acclaim decided to build an entire 3D universe, only to then bog it down by some of the most heinous draw distance we've ever seen. It's a decision even more inadvisable than inviting Cartman to your Chili Con Carnival.
This one might not be totally fair because the graphics on Crazy Taxi for Dreamcast are still perfectly serviceable. The one thing that did shock me upon replay, though, was just how empty the world was. I thought I remembered characters and cars all over the place, but now I realize the streets are even more deserted than the meetings at my high school's Al Franken Club.
When Grand Theft Auto 2 first came out, it generated a lot of protests. Today, though, I don't think it would be a very big deal...not because people are any more tolerant to the content, mind you, but because you'd be hard pressed to find anyone with a working Game Boy Color.
No. No no no no no. Again, there must have been some mistake. The spy in GoldenEye 007 is a suave, debonair sharp-shooter, not a featureless mannequin with Pierce Brosnan's face wallpapered on top of it. Please fix.
I'm so glad the Nazis lost World War II, though one has to wonder how differently things might have turned out if the Germans had chosen to make their stronghold somewhere other than that Windows maze screen saver.
But perhaps nothing can sum up how clouded our memories of our favorite games are better than this magazine cover from 1997. Just as we're scratching our heads and asking, "Is that really...?" the headline happily cuts us off: "Yes, this is an actual PC game screenshot."
