Okay
Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya
Day after day your home life's a wreck
The powers that be just
Breathe down your neck
You get no respect
You get no relief
You gotta speak up
And yell out your piece
So back off your rules
Back off your jive
Cause I'm sick of not living
To stay alive
Leave me alone
I'm not asking a lot
I just don't want to be controlled
That's all I want
All I want
That's all I want
All I want
That's all I want
All I want
That's all I want
All I want

Oh yes Crazy Taxi was the reason why I own a Dreamcast back in da old days and it was fun but got boring really fast but still had fun none the less.

@edvigesIt was sweet in the arcades!

It was also sweet having the same game and hardware at home.

(minus that sweet steering wheel/gearbox setup)


Back then forward and gas for boost? Heh can't remember. I should dust it off one of these days.

@thequickshooter Because we're ALL casuals when we make a trip to the bathroom.

@thequickshooter Filthy Casuals indeed. I think developers need to become more niche than they are. Everything's slowly turning into Apple and Call of Duty. I'm gonna hoard legacy games and barricade myself in my house.

even if you can, you'ed still play horribly bad meaning it will be cheapfun, nothing more nothing less

@eddieham13 Ah nice!  I like it when devs add in interesting little touches like this.

I take it you are playing the remastered versions from the recent RE 6 release?  I've wondered about them...

@PixelAddict @eddieham13 @crazylooser2003 Yeah... Speaking of that I recently started playing Resident Evil 2 and only just realised that the zombie outside the police station is the guy who gets killed by nemesis on resident evil 3.
