    win And the Peter Gunn theme playing in the background just made the whole thing feel that much more badass And seeing as how good this game is it s kicking off our top 50 list after all I should also note how terrible the PS2 era remake was and how sad the lack of a proper modern day version of Spy Hunter makes me Given how retro remake crazy developers are getting these days between TMNT Turtles in Time Re shelled R Type Dimensions Pac Man Championship Edition and Contra Rebirth I m starting to lose count it s crazy how no one s taken advantage of WiiWare to create some sort of awesome Rush meets Twisted Metal Spy Hunter redux Where s the love 49 Wizards Warriors 1987 Platform NES Developer Publisher Rare Acclaim In a Nutshell An armor clad knight rescues every damsel in distress in the world ruining the promising careers of countless wannabe heroes Will says Oh Wizards Warriors you broke my spirit so many times yet I kept coming back for more I remember striving to finish this game without dying the word on the street was that the score maxed out at 999 999 if you did so a feat that I m sorry to say I never accomplished The game wasn t impossible but it certainly felt like it at times Thank goodness for unlimited continues which allowed players to see their way through to the end of the game even if that meant another score reset every few minutes What attracted me to Wizards Warriors was its combination of challenging side scrolling gameplay with a fairly deep role playing system Your approach to combat changed quite a bit once you got ranged weapons and powerful magic staffs while the various items

    shooting bad guys you were actively searching for the alien landers that abducted your people You d shoot down these aliens and swoop in to save the falling humans before they went splat dropping them off safely in the cityscape below I remember being very impressed with myself when I learned that you could keep aliens in your stage from abducting any more humans if you kept a rescued hostage on your ship Defender trained me for many of the tactical challenges in today s games I had to think ahead and by using the nifty radar screen I could find enemies before they appeared onscreen Still no matter how smart I may have felt I was no match for Defender As fast as I could shoot those lasers I d eventually succumb to the alien invasion especially those evil red buggers 39 Missile Command 1981 Platform Atari 2600 Developer Publisher Atari In a Nutshell Shoot down missiles to defend California from a nuclear holocaust Gerald says Whenever we face the threat of thermonuclear war I know I ll be better prepared to help defend us because I played Missile Command on the Atari 2600 Sure I don t have access to the ballistic missiles that I d need to shoot down incoming nukes but if made for TV movies have taught me anything it s that military compounds are easy enough to sneak into as long as I m accompanied by a nerdy scientist and a buxom blonde in carefully torn clothing The six cities that you defend in Missile Command are supposed to represent Eureka San Francisco San Luis Obispo Santa Barbara Los Angeles and San Diego As a California resident it troubles me to think of how easy it was for these major cities to get blown

    Suddenly mushrooms came in two varieties the good kind that made you bigger and the poisonous kind that killed you This bizarre and intensely unforgiving platformer which reused graphics from the original Super Mario Bros almost felt like somebody at Nintendo created a really difficult Super Mario Bros fan mod in a few weeks of downtime and then decided to unleash it on Japan Much of the original game s conditioning got thrown for a loop in this masochistic madhouse like say typical springboards that propelled your character not five meters but five full screens into the stage Unexpected Sure But this twisted take on the classic Mushroom Kingdom romp breathed new life into the game much like The Legend of Zelda s second quest It s a shame that the decision makers at Nintendo of Japan decided us Westerners weren t up for the challenge at the time 29 Batman 1989 Platform NES Developer Publisher Sunsoft In a Nutshell The dude from Beetlejuice punches his way through the mean streets of Gotham City in an effort to take down his arch nemesis the guy from that one movie with Helen Hunt Will says Until this year s release of Batman Arkham Asylum 1989 s movie tie in was my favorite game based on the Caped Crusader s criminal pummeling escapades Thanks to film director Tim Burton I was fully swept up in Bat mania for the duration of 1989 and I used the hard earned gains from my first real job to buy everything from trading cards to t shirts to this game I have to admit that I was a bit bummed when I figured out that the game had next to nothing in common with the movie but by then I was already hooked While the game

    player types and you re off running well technically skating You only have only need two buttons pass and shoot This probably sounds like a total old man thing to say but every hockey game I ve tried to pick up since then has left me unimpressed All the realism and control detail in the world doesn t necessarily make a game enjoyable and I sometimes wish hockey games could regress to the simple elegance of Ice Hockey s pass and shoot scheme For me it held up for countless hours and the lack of Wayne Gretzky or a juking mechanism didn t even cross my mind Sometimes simple is better We tend to forget that a lot these days 19 Pro Wrestling 1987 Platform NES Developer Publisher Nintendo In a Nutshell Sports entertainers beat each other to a pulp as they compete for the title belt Gerald says While the NES featured quite a few entertaining wrestling games Tecmo World Wrestling in particular was a lot of fun Pro Wrestling is the bona fide classic that set the golden standard It featured a cast of wacky characters like karate master Kin Corn Karn pale skinned King Slender and Starman a guy who wears a pink bodysuit and a big blue star mask You won t find Hulk Hogan or Andre the Giant here but who needs real life wrestlers when you ve got the Amazon A mutant fish man who was gnawing faces long before Street Fighter II s Blanka became a household name All silliness aside Pro Wrestling admirably captured the drama of professional wrestling You had an in game ref that took far too long to count you out or make the three counts but you could abuse this by taking the action outside the ring against
