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?

Taz: Wanted Review
game: Taz: Wanted
review | 11/01/02 | Monica Hafer
Infogrames does it to us again with Taz: Wanted (available now for all systems). Taz gets to star in his own platform adventure, and it\'s mostly belching and spinning. Monica took the PS2 version for a spin, and gives her take here. Jason took the Xbox and Gamecube versions. and he has a slightly different take on it. Read \'em both.

Terminator: Dawn of Fate Review
game: Terminator: Dawn of Fate
review | 11/01/02 | Jeremy Kauffman
Who cares what Arnie is doing these days, especially when you get to play your own action hero in Terminator: Dawn of Fate. The upside is that this title is really fun to look at -- great gameplay graphics and well-done cutscenes. The downside is that this title is really painful to play. Click here.

game: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4
review | 11/01/02 | Eric Qualls
No other series has changed the face of gaming so much in the past few years. Neversoft, Activision and Tony Hawk have pretty much single-handedly established the extreme sports genre, and Tony Hawk\'s Pro Skater 4 is a major evolution of design and content. Featuring enough new stuff to make the most hardcore THPS fans happy and enough beginner stuff to make it accessible to newbies, you need this game. Click here.

Burnout 2: Point of Impact Review
game: Burnout 2: Point of Impact
review | 10/25/02 | Eric Qualls
Acclaim has given us the sequel to their cult-fave arcade style racer, and Burnout 2: Point of Impact is everything we wanted it to be. Better graphics, more tracks, more vehicles, and more gameplay modes make it a must-have title for any racing fan, and a must-try title for gamers in general. Click here for the review.

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.

Superman: Shadow of Apokolips Review
game: Superman: Shadow of Apokolips
review | 10/20/02 | Eric Qualls
Infogrames and Atari bring us a new Superman game, and this one goes a long way toward redeeming the steely one\'s reputation. Superman: Shadow of Apokolips manages to look almost just like the popular cartoon series, and the game itself is not bad. Click here for more.

How to Get Your Significant Other to Love Gaming
Articles Archive | 10/20/02 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It is the plague of gamers everywhere”how do you get the one you love to love your gaming habit? The most obvious and commonly attempted ploy is trying to get your significant other to develop his or her own habit. But sometimes this is a more difficult prospect than one might expect. I have heard many of my male counterparts bemoan the fact that his wife or girlfriend just doesn't understand his need to spend hours on the console or computer and that it is jeopardizing both of the loves of his life. As I am a firm believer in the "love me, love my obsessions" philosophy, I decided put my mind to work figuring out how to lure your partner into the gaming fold. After much thought, I finally came up with a strategy that I think will work for almost anyone. So here goes?my best advice for winning over your one and only.

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.
