The Road Rash titles on the Genesis remain some of my favorite “line-scrolling” racing games of all time. The controls were tight, the combat was fun, the music was catchy, and the track design gave a great three dimensional feel.

Atari Jaguar. These two words seem to muster up so much controversy amongst the mainstream gaming press. “The controller is horrible” they say, “it’s not really 64-bit.” “Doom doesn’t have music.” For those that own a Jag, most of that disdain is misguided. With that in mind, I present to you the Top 5 Atari Jaguar games.

My love for all things Sonic was reaffirmed on 9/9/99 with the release of Sonic Adventure for the Dreamcast’s North American launch.

Continuing the Ninja Gaiden SNES Trilogy Let's Play series, I take you through Ninja Gaiden II. Like in the last episode, I attempt to complete the game as quickly as I can. Additionally, I will point out differences this version has compared to the NES one, and talking about tips and tricks to get through the game easily.
