I'm starting to think The Simpson's have a lot of lovely games

Even as a kid I thought they were poo poo except for Bart vs. The Space Mutants, which I now realize was poo poo. The first level in that one is still kind of cool, though.

There was some lego game I played a lot where drove around a city and raced a lot and idk what its called but I played the hell out of it on PC. Also Bart's Nightmare actually freaked me out, a lot.

It had some pretty good music. I can forgive a lot about a game with pretty good music. Also, the Genesis was a loving RPG wasteland when that came out, your options were, like, phantasy star 2 or super hydlide.

There were a lot of games I enjoyed playing for quite a while before realising they had been poo poo all along and I had just been deluding myself the whole time.Still are in fact.Dungeon of Dredmore for example.

it was cool but they were trying to do things the super fx chip was not able to do

e: here's a video of the game running on actual snes hardware: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dds-gCCj-UI#t=277s
honestly looks more playable than i expected it to, probably on par with virtua racing on the genesis/megadrive

i mean at the time most fully polygonal games you could play at home would struggle to go faster than 15 fps anyway

mostly filled with terrible design choices, an end-game puzzle which can only be understood from reading the story at the end of every stage (this video game is a platformer) (if you get the puzzle wrong you lose a life) and the boss AI cheats

also there was an nes game about colonizing planets and building up an empire and the main screen was a huge star field i loving loved that game i'm sure its garbage

i remember i found an exploit where switching between ships would allow you to overflow the amount of people that were put on the ship and you could send out impossibly good ships

I'm not sure how they expected a game like Tyrian to sell in 1995 when Furył was released the same year.

Fury3 appears to be a first person flight sim, while Tyrian is a shmup. I don't think they were competing against each other.

Holy poo poo I was wondering that game's proper name for ages. That game was pretty hilarous. There was a ghost dude who had a good and bad version, and the bad version would take items from you. I remember having a whole bunch of keys (needed to beat the game) and he laughs maniacally as he goes though my bag only to steal a chicken.

Yeah it had a pretty cool arty style and was pretty spooky for little kid me but it was still a bad game because there was zero indication of wtf you had to do to beat it. I don't think I ever finished the thing.

Im watching a play-through on youtube now, it sure doesn't hold up. I think I remember escaping the house as a kid and seeing a creepy sun or something, but the game crashed.

Basically just a lovely, less-violent version of Mortal Kombat for those of us with parents who didn't allow gory games. But the cyborg guy could shoot a beam out of his torso and that fuckin' rocked.
