Red Faction 2 Review
game: Red Faction 2
review | 11/08/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
THQ has scored more than an ordinary hit with Red Faction 2. Building on the original installment of the series, RF2 offers an amazing story of the kind we don\'t often see in videogames. Sure, the Geo Mod technology is still there, and still fun as hell, but this one is about telling a good tale, and we commend its success.

Whacked! Review
game: Whacked!
review | 11/06/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
There have been some good videogame gameshow parodies and there have been some bad ones. Microsoft\'s Whacked! falls somewhere in the middle. With nice visuals, lots of wackiness, and online play capabilities we dig it, but overall it\'s a bit simple. Welcome our newest GF! team member, Colin, by clicking here.

EDITORIAL - I am God?
Articles Archive | 11/06/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It turns out that in Montgomery County, Maryland, police are looking into "tips" they received on their sniper hotline concerning Grand Theft Auto 3, as described in this article from The Jeffersonian. Callers phoning the line apparently reported that in Grand Theft Auto 3 you could use a sniper rifle to shoot whomever you'd like. So in the interest of thoroughly investigating the case, several police officers from the Montgomery County Police Department have purchased GTA3 from a Circuit City over the past couple weeks. Are these guys doing a bunch of hard work, or are they simply catching up on their games?

Xtreme Air Racing Review
game: Xtreme Air Racing
review | 10/20/02 | Eric Qualls
Sure, racing souped-up airplanes at really low altitudes through Nevada canyons sounds extreme, but Xtreme Air Racing manages to tone down the heart-pumping thrills and focus on the fairly cerebral simulation. It\'s kind of like reading a Sex Ed textbook unless you\'re really into aircraft simulations. Click here.

Prisoner of War Review (Xbox)
game: Prisoner of War
review | 10/16/02 | Aaron Stanton
Codemasters brings us a really innovative WWII-themed title. Prisoner of War puts you in the role of a downed American fighter pilot, and it ain\'t all Hogan\'s Heroes. You\'ll sneak around, infiltrate, steal and escape, but you won\'t fire a shot from a weapon. Plus, you\'ll learn derogatory terms for Germans you never knew existed. Click.

What's in a Game? A Linguistic History of
Articles Archive | 10/09/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Here at Gamesfirst! we like to talk about games--interactive art, we'll tell you, and the future of art and storytelling”a force more powerful and more frightening than its parent, the movie, or its grandparent, the stage”both terrifying in their own way, in their own time. But did you ever wonder where the word "videogame"came from? "Video" meets "game"--it sounds like a pretty straightforward etymology to get to the word that brings us all so much joy, but what we have here is a strange union between two ancient words who's roots stretch across recorded time”and further, in fact, into the dark night of prerecorded time.

Free Expression Policy Project
Articles Archive | 09/27/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Last Spring US District Court Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh Sr. determined that videogames do not qualify as "speech" and are therefore not protected under the First Amendment. The case was brought before Judge Limbaugh by the Interactive Digital Software Association (IDSA) and St. Louis videogame retailers and arcade owners who were upset about an ordinance passed by the St. Louis City Council regulating violent and mature videogames. In the court's ruling, Judge Limbaugh wrote that there is "no conveyance of ideas, expressions, or anything else that could possibly amount to speech. The court finds that video games have more in common with board games and sports than they do with motion pictures."

Yahoo! Lauches Games On Demand Service
Articles Archive | 09/23/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
Yahoo! has built a lot of things in the past. Beginning as a list of websites circulated through email and newsgroups, it could be said that Yahoo! is a good portion of the reason the World Wide Web took off the way it did “ we wouldn't be surfing around so much if we had to rely on JoeBob's List of Kickass Links to get the job done.

Greek Geeks Fight Gaming Ban
editorial | 09/05/02 | Shawn Rider
In a horribly misguided stab at limiting gambling in public places, the Greek Government has created a ban on all videogames. That\'s right: Playing games on your PC, Xbox, PS2, Gamecube, Game Boy Advance (especially in public) is illegal in Greece. The first couple of internet cafe owners have been arrested already for allowing gaming in their public establishments, and things have gotten more rotten than 4:00 AM at a LAN bash over there.
