Computer Game Vick's Video Game Picks

3.2k views 9 items Embed
Games I used to be completely obsessed with. I'm going with just a few for now, but we could add PLENTY more. I mostly ranked them by hours of gameplay, though I think Lethal Enforcers should get special recognition for introducing me to the wonderful, wonderful world of arcade light-gun games. And few people might remember Comix Zone on Genesis, but that was one of the most ingenious games when it first came out. Show it some love.
