A quick list, I'm sure I will miss some and some have been mentioned so no use repeating them .
Doom 2 - Earthbound - Beneath a Steel Sky - Wing Commander - UFO Enemy Unknown- Theme Park - Need for Speed - Policenauts - FFVI

Excellent year for the bolded alone. But there were more: Jagged Alliance, One Must Fall: 2097. Really outstanding year.

Wing Commander actually came out in 1990. You were thinking of the 1994 eddition.

FFVI is a big one. Breath of Fire 2, Mega Man X2 and Castlevania Rondo of Blood are three that I like but are less well known.

Rise of the Robots is an infamous game that turns 25 this year.

My favourite is DKC.

Same! :D

Super Metroid.

I wasn't that surprised seeing it there, but when I remember it released a year before I was born, holy crap I feel old now.

YOU feel old?!! I was born alongside the Super NES!!

And it has Alice in Chains! :D



1994 was another great year of Point'n'Click Adventures.

Sierra released the beautiful Collector's Editions of King's Quest, Space Quest and Leisure Suit Larry. Also King's Quest VII for the Win95-launch, Gabriel Knight, The Adventures of Willy Beamish and Coktel Vision's strange "The Bizarre Adventures of Woodruff and the Schnibble of Azimuth".

Lucas Arts just released Sam and Max Hit the Road & Day of the Tentacle and was working on Full Throttle and The Dig. (They also released the awesome action games Star Wars TIE Fighter + Rebel Assault + Dark Forces in this period).

Legend Entertainment released Companions of Xanth, Death Gate and Superhero League of Hoboken.

Westwood Studios released two Legend of Kyrandia games: The Hand of Fate and Malcolm's Revenge.

Revolution Software released the awesome Beneth a Steel Sky.

New World Computing released the furry "Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb".

Happy 25th Birthday, Super Metroid! I think a nice 100% run is in order to mark the occasion. I sure wish I could do this on my Switch, but the SNES Classic will have to do.



Oh, just saw, Rise of the Triad is also from 1994.

Wasn't it made by ex-members of the Doom development team?

Such an underrated classic, the best BattleToads! Hope the new BattleToads is more like that one. ^^

Anyone remember Primal Rage from Atari?



I feel old.

I remember playing Donkey Kong Country in 1994.

The graphics were the best I've seen at the time.
