Kill Your Babies: Erase the 1990s!



  • So here is probably the fastest created list to date filled with nothing but iconic classics (yes I know that's redundant) from the 1990s! Let's ruin each others childhoods by striking down the 30 games that define the decades (per those that submitted to the list).

    As always, just in case there are new players, here are the rules:

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense)

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only four other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed from the last overall kill (not necessarily your own). This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: Per normal, we will have a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Your kills are your own, so be ruthless, uncompromising, and most importantly:

    HAVE FUN!!!

    I cannot stand survival horror. I have started and stopped more survival horror games than I can remember because they just irritate me.

    While alright game, which gave way to the masterpiece that is Silent Hill 2, this one feels cluncky. Yeah, to a degree it's part of the game's charm, but when you have to struggle with the controls, it partially ruins the game. And the plot wasn't too great, especially compared to it's sequel.

    Simply my least favorite game of the list. I find it aestheticly unappealing, and the genre itself only has few games/series I like.

    It might have been one the better games on the Saturn, but it doesn't match up to other games of the decade.

    I've never been a Mario guy. There's a small handful that I do really enjoy, and of them only one came out in the nineties, and it's on this list, and it ain't this one.



  • Not making a kill, just updating the list again since my previous kill (FF8) wasn't removed

    A micromanagement game on PC about amusement parks? Sure, some people enjoy it, I'm just definitely not one of them.

    Anyone who isn't a stranger to these lists should have seen this coming. While this game initially impressed folks with its visuals and the potential of the Dreamcast, it has aged extremely poorly. This led to the creation of Sonic '06 and I'm sure most of us are familiar with that gem.

    You may be asking for proof of how the game has aged poorly, so I'll share the same video I share every time I kill this game. Big the Cat stages really highlight this game as the cesspool it is.

    Get this shit up outta here. WipEout should have been on the list before Jet fucking Moto.



  • @SabotageTheTruth Heheheheh I think so too.

    @El-Shmiablo Wow. I think that's the harshest I've read since I've been curating these lists. Do you hate Jet Moto that much?

    Sorry Spyro, you were really fun...But there are better games on this list. By the way...FF8 doesn't have one great song, it simply has one amazing soundtrack, that was built for an orchestra.

    I have no emotional connection to any Castlevania game so this kill doesn't sting. I just don't generally like gothic stuff too much or games that somehow dwell on that. Metroidvania as a genre rarely speaks to me, at least in a difficult 2D form.

    Revenge kill incoming! Also, I never played Vigilante 1 through 7, so I saw no point in picking this one up.
