Does anyone else remember a game series on the Nintendo 64 known as Vigilante? That game was awesome. Twisted Metal is similar but just isn't the same.
One game that is more likely to be remembered: NBA Street. That game is the only sports game that I liked.
Sly Cooper. Nuff said.
Jack and Daxter.
Not really a specific genre, really. I love brawlers and those crazy cartoon racing games though. And that reminds me, CRASH BANDICOOT, WHY DID YOU LEAVE!?!
