Genesis Games – The Punisher

I played The Punisher on Sega Genesis/Mega Drive this time because most superhero video games are based on Batman, Spider-Man, or the X-Men. I've seen different ways on how those superheroes could be represented in video games, so now I'm drawn to video games based on...

SNES Games – Yu Yu Hakusho

The anime series Yu Yu Hakusho was quite popular in my country back in the day, so as soon as I found out about the wonders of emulation, I immediately checked out all of the Yu Yu Hakusho video games that I would never have known because they only came out in Japan....

Game Boy Advance Games – Batman Begins

Genesis Games – X-Men

Genesis Games – Ghostbusters

I actually had the chance to play Ghostbusters on Sega Genesis back when I was a kid. However, I played the Japanese version so I didn't have a full understanding of what I needed to do in the game. I was never able to beat it. I'm glad that we're getting a new...

Game Boy Games – Ghostbusters II

While looking for some Ghostbusters titles to feature, I was surprised to see Ghostbusters II for the Game Boy. I've always been a fan of the franchise. At the time of this writing, the new Ghostbusters movie (Ghostbusters: Afterlife) is nearing it's release date. So,...

Genesis Games – Superman

I've always believed that it's hard to write stories about Superman, let alone design a video game around him. He's supposed to be invincible, and his vast array of superpowers would make it easy for him to deal with any threat. Meanwhile, video games revolve around...
