The Video Game Archeologist is a magazine style publication that is dedicated to keeping the memory of the golden age of gaming alive. During the 8 and 16-Bit era there were over 2,500 games released, yet most people would be hard pressed to name five that don't include "Mario, Sonic, or Final Fantasy" in the title. The primary focus of this series is to not only look back at some of the games we remember, but to also dig deep and examine games that time has forgotten. By utilizing hundreds of screenshots as well as an in depth review, each game recieves cover story treatment.
Each volume will cover a cross section of games across a variety of systems, from the Atari 2600 to the NES to the Genesis, as well as some games that never quite made it to the American market. In this initial volume, 15 games are examined. They are:
Bloody Wolf, Cannon Fodder, Cyborg Hunter, Die Hard, DJ Boy, Dragonfire, Legend of the Mystical Ninja, Metal Storm, Moonwalker, Red Zone, Super Double Dragon, Tao, The Firemen, The Ninja, and Tron Deadly Discs.
