MobyGames Classic: Resident Evil community stories

On Wednesday we announced 1996's survival-horror pioneer Resident Evil was the next addition our growing list of video game classics, presented by MobyGames.com.

Resident Evil caused quite a stir in the gaming community when it was released in 1996, delivering a tense combination of exploration, action, and scares. It served up many of the core attributes that still serve as the foundation of many of today's more modern and refined horror-driven games, and created a rich world of conspiracies and corrupt corporations and a cast of memorable characters that made their way into numerous sequels on multiple platforms. The original tale was later given an updated treatment for the GameCube, and the franchise continues to see new entries by developer Capcom.

MobyGames Classic Community Stories: MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat

On Wednesday we announced 1995's combat simulation MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat was the next addition to our growing list of video game classics, presented by MobyGames.com.

MechWarrior 2: 31st Century Combat stomped onto the PC gaming scene in the mid-nineties, bringing complex first-person combat that was as much about deftly piloting the series' multi-ton walking tanks called mechs as it was about reflexes. Location-based damage and operational controls that let players rotate their mechs' torsos independently of their legs were just a couple of attributes that set MechWarrior apart from other combat sims. The game also saw several versions that helped bridge the gap between DOS and 3D accelerated video cards, including some versions made and bundled specifically for certain video cards by a variety of their manufacturers. It also eventually made its way onto the PlayStation, Sega Saturn, and Mac.
