Brawler of the Year - 1993

Merry Christmas, everybody! This year we start seeing many more console titles. They're not always that great, but they're there all the same! Actually, this year was tied up for a while, but it eventually became clear who the true winner was.

Dungeons & Dragons - Tower of Doom (Arcade)

When I think D&D, I usually think of turn-based RPGs and sometimes the God awful older PC titles that I could never get into (even now). What I DON'T usually think of is a brawler/RPG hybrid that's done immeasurably well. Lots of characters to choose from, plenty of forks in the road, several types of attacks, magic, items, upgrades, level ups, and much more.

I wouldn't say it's as strong as last year's winner as far as being a medieval fantasy, but I WOULD say as far as an action/RPG brawler it's an excellent title.

Runner Ups

And as far as the one that tied for a while? FUCKING PUNISHER. I...LOVE...how over the top that game is. To be honest, most games this year are fan-fucking-tastic...yes, even a lot of the console titles. About the only one I'd stay away from, well...I'm sure it's obvious, but if you really don't know, then PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON'T PLAY BEBE'S KIDS. Yeah, that's about it.

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.
