    MW recent CoDs have been some of the better ones in the franchise so I hope they can bring this back and make it worthwhile. I've not seen anything on this one though to tempt me like MW2 and MW3 did.

    Man, this is sooooo hard. Too many to choose from given it was peak gaming as a kid.
     
    I loved Virtua Racing on Mega Drive. Took graphics and games to a new level. And then followed by an incredible TOCA and TOCA 2 games on the Playstation 1. Driving games just were never as good as these for a while.
     
    So many sport games tbh defined me as a kid so I have loads that wouldn't really be on many people's radar, like Madden 92 NFL and NHLPA Hockey 93 which was insanely good. Micro Machines Turbo Tournament 2 was incredible for their tournament mode of 4 leagues with promotion and relegation - some concepts that are still not matched in other games to this day and I have no idea why.
     
    Outside of sports games, Tomb Raider I think was just gamebreaking for RPGs. And as others say, Final Fantasy 7 lit up what was achievable on open world games for me.

    Not Super Mario Kart, philly?!! Unless that wasn't 90's I guess?
     
     
    Absolutely incredible game. I spent ages even just on the training missions 😄
     
     
    The dreamcast version of this was incredible!!! The world map on how they created the campaign was just not like any other fighting game. Another fantastic concept that made a game standout on its own.
     
     
    Just couldn't get into these unfortunately! Although @Findmartin was hooked on these if i remember rightly. A game before this was Pandemonium that I really enjoyed that was even more linear than Crash was.
     
     
    Snap 😄 I would've said Zelda on the GameBoy but unfortunately I was so shit at the game, I couldn't get far so didn't like it back then! Now, playing it on SNES online, I can now see what the fuss was about!

    I agree with @GazzaGarratt it's hard to pick, the insane amount of games to choose from.
     
    I agree Tomb Raider was great as well. 
    Metal Gear Solid was something else at the time. 
    Honourable mentions to Tenchu and the original Grand Theft Auto as well. 
    Goldeneye, Medal of honour and Age of Empires 2, like J4MES and Phil mentioned also. 
     
    Now I know this is slightly further ahead, but on the year 2000 alone we had. 
    Tony Hawks 2, Hitman 1 and the first Splinter Cell! 
     
    Splinter cells graphics blew everything out of the water at the time. I remember it so well. It was incredible.

    £30 is nuts for an expansion. £15 tops I'd say. Bohemia treating it like it's a new release so they can get that sweet ass pay day.

    J4MES OX4D got a reaction from GazzaGarratt in More Studio Closures   
    A lot of articles catalogued and talked about in this video regarding this situation
     
    Studio closures to cut costs, failing game pass and Phil Spencer going against everything he stood for. Sounds like an absolute shambles.  The fact Bobby Kotick got a near $400m payoff is absolutely nuts. I did predict that all this would happen in the Microsoft/Activision takeover thread and how it would be a catastrophe for gamers and developers. Funnily enough, not even the shareholders are seeing a benefit of it yet! 
     
    Phil Spencer should probably stand down.

    J4MES OX4D got a reaction from GazzaGarratt in More Studio Closures   
    Microsoft announces 4 studio closures—including Arkane Austin and Tango Gameworks, creators of Prey and Hi-Fi Rush respectively | PC Gamer
    WWW.PCGAMER.COM "Great teams are sunsetting before our eyes again, and it's a f*cking gut stab."  
    Gotta pump all that money into Call of Duty and Bethesda smh! Hi-Fi Rush was a great title but obviously that isn't enough for Microsoft or any greedy corporation now. More will fall especially with MS trying to offload all their gamepass studio acquisitions that haven't paid off in trying to close the gap on Playstation. Sad to see especially when they are happily spending tens of billions on other brands for EZ munay.

    Very tough choice because the 90's made some huge strides in very little time and the industry kept evolving and innovating massively - imagine going from Doom to Half Life in just 5 years! The gulf between a 2019 game compared to a 2024 one now is almost nothing. 
     
    Metal Gear Solid is a very strong shout because it told an incredible story and had some unforgettable gameplay moments. There's also Half Life as mentioned, Resident Evil 2, FF7, Super Mario 64, GoldenEye, Age of Empires 2 and many more. 
     
    I'd probably give it to MGS overall as it pushed the PS1 to the max and also exposed Nintendo's mistake in using cartridges as even some of the sound files were bigger than an entire N64 game! Games going from 2D to 3D was big in those days and Mario 64 was also a significant leap. 
     
    I really miss huge innovations like that these days.

    So Valve's new MOBA shooter 6v6 game has leaked. Really not sure about this - CS2 is in a state with cheaters and TF2 is in a mess with hackers so releasing a new game that probably should've come out in 2018 may not be the best idea. Their last new IP Artifact which was supposed to dominated the card market for years, died within weeks and this was after a huge development process of time and highly experienced personnel. Really not sure why they aren't looking at Half Life 3, TF3, Portal and L4D3 especially with Source2. This could be another huge flop for a massive company

    No Steam, no play. Only making it available on Ubisoft connect immediately kills 95% of your potential reach. Glad it's finally released but I don't have the desire to even try it.

    Another bad decision by them. Poch was really turning it around towards the end and you could see them continuing this form into next season. Now they've shot themselves in the foot and will probably have to turn back to Tuchel.

    Poch has left Cheatski. Not entirely surprising although I thought he'd managed to steady the ship by the end of the season. 
     
    Poisoned chalice it would seem, I just hope it means they're rubbush again for another season 🤣
