    Mortal Kombat was classic! To be fair it still looks and plays well today!

    Thrill Kill was the most Violent game of the 90's though

    nice article Steven proper good and took me right back....

    Felt a pang of .. loss... for those old days of good Carmageddon madness too. Nick used to play it incessantly and his neighbourhood was always fraught with danger the day after....

    I can still remember the first time I saw DOOM (I'd not seen WOLFENSTEIN before), I know there had been 3D games before it but this was definitely first time I looked at a game an thought this is completely different to anything I've ever seen before and was amazed.

    Carmageddon: It's extremely childish but I was always amused by the potential spoonerism of 'Cunning Stunt'
