1. Max Payne (PS2). "Hey, what's that logo on the bottom right? It's that one logo that's on that Grand Theft Auto game." I had barely gotten my Playstation 2 and I only had a Smackdown game for it. I was in desperate need of increasing my library of games. I thought, "What better game to get than one that has to do with Rockstar?!" I criticized this game when I first saw commercials for it, but when I saw it at the store, with its Rockstar logo and gun-weilding character on the cover, I had to get it. I mean, it looked so cool! Luckily, I enjoyed it, and have even passed it an indefinite amount of times. 2. Grand Theft Auto 3 (PS2). Another game I criticized upon seeing the commercials and ads for it. I went over to my friend's house one day, and saw another friend of mine playing this game and I thought, "Hey, that looks pretty cool." This game is the reason I bought Max Payne. I made harsh comments about it at first, and didn't believe friends when they would tell me how good it was. But psychologically, I wanted to get it, to look cool in front of all those friends. So one day, I went out and I bought it, even though Vice City had barely come out. Why did I get this game and not Vice City? Because I had to catch up on my coolness. There was no way I was gonna buy a game that was meant for those who had already been introduced to coolness via GTA3. I had to take it one step at a time. 3. Sonic Mega Collection (GCN). I ask you this: what's more cool than a blue hedgehog? A collection of old-school games featuring that hedgehog, that's what! I had played these games as a kid at cousins' or friends' houses, but never owned them. So years later, I purchased that which was at one point the epitome of coolness. I've only passed the first of the games within the collection, and that's not including all the Chaos Emeralds. Oh well, maybe I'll get around to it one, or maybe not. 4. Turok: Evolution (GCN). Remember Turok? Those bloody as hell fps games that only the cool kids owned on the 64? Well, Turok is back, and not as cool as back in the day. But it's a bloody fps game with some crazy multiplayer action, and that's always kinda cool, isn't it? 5. Metroid Prime (GCN). I saw the review video of this game and was amazed. Beautiful graphics, a good worthwhile adventure, and a 9.7! I recently got this game, played for about 3 or 4 hours, and then stopped. I will play it at some point and complete it, but not now. Right now, I solely own this game for the sake of looking cool and owning one of the Gamecube's best titles.
