Ready to feel old? 2001 was a watershed year for videogames, with powerful 3D consoles and classic games that laid the groundwork for the modern era of gaming. It was also 20 years ago, and all those games are now two decades old. We’ve invited Larry Charles of Striking Distance Studios to help us through this sad realization by celebrating five unforgettable games from the now-distant past, after which we’ll talk about Street Cleaner, the return of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game AND Lucasfilm Games, and your New Year’s gaming resolutions for 2021.
Question of the Week: What’s a mostly dead or obsolete game genre you wish would see a resurgence?
