guessed byThe_Liquid_Laser again (4th year in a row)

This is probably the only FPS game that I've ever liked.  The fact that I could travel in three dimensions and turn myself upside down really messed with my head, but I liked it.  I also liked Bioshock, but I liked it IN SPITE OF the fact it was a FPS.  With Descent I had fun both just shooting and exploring.  It's a great game.

Another cool thing is, that back then devs often delivered their tools (aka level editors) with the game. Which lead to many cool and crazy user created levels. As the level-editor was special in that way, you could place multiple rooms at the same place in 3D-space. So you leave a room, circle back through a cavern and land in a different room, although you were at the same place in 3D. That fucks with your mind.

#48: One of the latest games for the Neo-Geo, but also one of the best - and certainly the best of it's series

Hint #1: The run&gun series is well known for their hilarious and top-notch sprite animations.

Hint #2: In this remake of an early title of this series, you first fight through an army of soldiers, but end up fighting off an alien invasion halfway through the game.

#41: Greetings, Warlord! Let the war begin!

#40: A very unusual RTS in space, where you start with a small capital ship and 3 planets to govern, but the map (and thus the number of planets to govern) and fleet grows at specific points in the story when you reach a new rank.

#39: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! yourself Mnementh for finding out it's Serious Sam: The First Encounter

#39: AAAAAAAHHHHHHH yourself... Serious Sam

Uh-oh!

But yeah, you're right. And I intended to use the AAAHHH yourself as first hint, with the Uh-oh! as second one...

I still prefer playing the original releases over their remakes. The original CroEngine was top-notch when it came out, but the re-releases looked downright ugly when they came out compared to other contemporary titles.

First video that turned up for the scene. Which is iconic I think.

Metal Slug... 5? I think that was the last one released on the Neo Geo.

#40 Braid

Not even sure how to describe Braid. It's a platformer that lets you rewind time. You can't really die. That's how it starts. The game then takes this simple twist and slowly but surely builds on this premise in ways you couldn't imagine. It messes with your mind and your perception right up to the haunting and disturbing ending. An absolute must play.

It's not quite that old. Also, it's not a remake of any earlier titles like Hint #2 points out, but the series is correct.
