Hey! I enjoyed MDK. Then again, I also thought Battle Arena Toshinden was the shit when I was 13. I spent hours repeatedly sniping and nuking the same bad guys as they respawned because I hated platforming.

Does anyone remember Messiah? Did that game ever come out? If it did I sure didn't know about it. That game was hyped beyond belief.
