Daikatana actually bears with two sins: first, sucking like there's no tomorrow; second, thanks to this epic fail people turned their back on Romero's next opus, the J-RPG «Anachronox», which was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT but few people actually know it (understandably, nobody wanted to play any Romero game after «Daikatana» and its creator's b*tching boasts).
Oh god what happened...whatever uh other game suggestions are: 3D Dot Game Heroes  and God of War II .
Now I know why I've never heard of this game...it's TOO good for general consumption...it would ruin us all for all other games for ever!
Sorry I don't think the game was that bad, I was a gamer since the 70's and completed more than 2000 pc games since then , I also was waiting Daikatana, I know It did'd delivered as I hoped, but I was Ok for that time, and the level design later on the game is great, the AI was not that good but for 2000.
love your show danny, think it would be hilarious to see you play stubs the zombie in rebel without a pulse.oh and ghostmaster !
Jesus Danny. Did you have to bring back all those memories? They weren't good memories.
I know we remember the good AND the bad.
oh man .... funny thing ..... I was gonna mention here in the comments that at least there are no pigeons in it and then danny says the exact same words ..... how weird is that ?
freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters freedom fighters
danny give this title a try, would love to hear your commentary on it.
That is the worst game I ever played, I remember buying it the day of release for something stupid like £40 played it for a couple of hours and took it back to the shop it was that shit, I can't even remember what I exchanged it for the memory of how shit of it was seems to have replaced anything positive I got out of it...
I really like the show, good mix of games.
Here are some suggestions I have for some older games
The monkey island type games:
Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
Day of the tenticle
Rune (third-person viking game)
Black & White
You played WHAT!? Did you lose a bet or something?
Time to play some Sacrifice. It's one of the first games GOG ever sold.
Please play Fate Gates of Dawn i never got past the portal an innocent had to open i had no idea who the innocent was LOL
I bought this game on N64 the day it came out back in the day. All the anticipation...died. I had to return it the next day because it was so bad, the controls made it utterly unplayable and I just ran into one glitch after another.
I could tell from inside the first three minutes that this game is used as a form of mental torture in Vietnam.
It wouldn't be bad if it weren't for the constant damn loading. Well, GOG won't be getting my money for THIS shit.
Oh and sorry but from what I see ,you are bad at games, can't believe how you stupidly die at the beginning.....
@LegendaryFightz Thats a good idea, any one would do!
@LegendaryFightz Daggerfall would be great! Morrowind was pretty good for its time, still is IMO.
@Flea136 yeah! those gameplays are sick haha
@KEDERZ Freedom Fighters. The game that made me weak in the knees.
@Alessandelpho Wow, just wow. Thanks for the video mate :)
@The_Gaming_Baby The recording was ruined while he was getting accustomed to the new equipment so, all gone. Wanted to see it too.
@thermalmotion I think he's already done that.
@nate1222 Yeah, I remember when GOG used to stand for Good Old Games.
@snakefantasy10 yes with oblivion lost installed (mod)
@starduke @nate1222 So this one should be on BOG?
Seriously, this is one of the worst games ever, this and Wario Ware Smooth Moves. Why everyone likes that game is a mystery, it make me want to puke.
