Ep. 41: EGM‘s 1996 Video Game Buyer‘s Guide


It’s the end of the year, which means we’ll soon be inundated with video game award shows and Best Of lists galore. We’ll have our own version of that next week but this week we wanted to take you on a journey. A time-travel journey. Grab your Discman and hop in the DeLorean, we’re heading back to 1996 with EGM’s 1996 Video Game Buyer’s Guide! Who was the “Best Game Hunk” of 1995? And what was EGM’s “most anticipated” console (that had already been released at time of publication)? Does their Game of the Year hold up? Listen to find out! We also chat about the disappointing Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales this year, Warner Bros.’s new Smash-style fighter, and what we’ve been playing. Come back next year for our 2021 games of the year – the whole crew will be there!
