Toobin’

Toobin’ is one of those classic games that didn’t get all of the attention it really deserved. A clever concept, you were on an inner tube floating down river trying not to pop your tube on various obstacles while racing an opponent to the finish. Collecting the letters to spell Toobin’ for a bonus was a great ongoing challenge. When something got in your way you chucked a soda can at it (which happened to be floating around randomly in the river). The graphics were the classic pixel look (like Donkey Kong, Pitfall, Burger Time, and all of those other games I used to love as a kid) but it was just so much fun to splash to the finish, even in the dead of winter!

Sam & Max Hit the Road

Sam & Max hit the road is a lesser-known adventure game released by LucasArts. This 2D adventure game follows rabbit Sam and his pal Max the dog (who oddly resembles McGruff the “Take a bite out of crime!” crime dog). The characters make their way through a cartoon world solving puzzles, collecting items, and interating with other characters and environments. The game was actually based on a 1989 comic book. I wonder if anyone actually read it?

Tie-Fighter

The game designers really thought about this long and made it. Based on the popular version of X-Wing. You finally get to be a part of the Federation. They finally figured out that there is a huge group of people that want to be part of the bad guys. You have an option of flying the different types of craft that the Federation has in their arsenal. You can fly and the infamous Tie-Fighter, Tie-Fighter, or Darth Vader’s own Tie-Interceptor. Somehow they figure out how to make the Federation’s craft faster and more versatile. A big thumbs up for this game.

X-Wing

This by far is the ultimate flight simulator. I am a huge Star Wars fan so this game was the ultimate. The designers put a lot of thought into it. You’ve got to worry about your shields, targeting, and which weapons you want to destroy the enemy with. I can’t count how many times I sat there and thought I was really part of the rebel alliance. You can sit there and pretend you are Luke Skywalker and pretend you’re taking on the Federation.

Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer

Search the globe for the ultimate way. Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer is all about hanging 10 in busting the ultimate tricks on the waves around the world. Very similar to Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. This game takes a surfing twist to it. Learn to do all the awesome moves that a pro surfer would do. What I find really fun about this game is learning all the tricks and executing them with great combinations.
