Brawler of the Year - 1992

There were a lot of great games this year, even on the consoles. However, I only had to take one look and immediately I knew which one deserved the #1 spot.

Golden Axe - The Revenge of Death Adder (Arcade)

This one's a no-brainer for me. Yet another GREAT arcade title that never saw the light of day on any other console and in my opinion, the greatest of all Golden Axe titles. Awesome graphics and sound, horizonal and vertical scrolling with RASTER EFFECTS, lots of great characters to choose from, badass mounts, multiple paths, awesome bosses and enemies...this is medieval fantasy hack n slash at its finest.

I hate to cut the article short, but seriously, there's little else to say. The demo movie illustrates my points perfectly. It's also a LONG game and it has 4 player co-op. Suffice to say, if you've played any of the other Golden Axe games but never heard of this one, FIND IT. You will love it.

Runner Ups

Again, this was a great year. It even featured some lesser known underdog titles I enjoyed like Rival Turf. There were also really STRANGE and wacky titles like B. Rap Boys (an unofficial sequel to DJ Boy) and Guardians of the 'Hood. And of course...Dragon Bowl. I would definitely recommend checking at least 90% of these titles out in your free time.

About gunsageone of us since 2:58 PM on 04.11.2008

I've been gaming since 1987. I used to be a big Nintendo fanboy, then Square jumped the shark, so I followed. Eventually I realized neither Square nor Nintendo were the only companies out there worth following and my collection more or less speaks for itself now. I love to meet up with people on XBL, though I haven't done much online with the Wii. I've also been writing game review articles since 2004 on the old Project Wonderboy, then Morphine Nation, and now back to the new Project Wonderboy and various other sites.

I also help out in writing for a local videogame store website (VGMX). Not much else to say, really, when it comes to gaming. I wouldn't consider myself an expert, but I would say I'm experienced.
