Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context. This week, Elliot and Kolby turn the clock back to look at the state of gaming in 1992. While Kolby had begun his years of gaming, wee little Elliot wasn’t born until the 11th Month and he probably didn’t have a SNES in the womb, that’s a pretty safe bet. So it’s time for Kolby to school Elliot on everything he missed. Looking at the top 20 games of the year things might start dire with titles neither recognises and an alarming level of movie tie in’s—like the Home Alone game? Sure why not. Thankfully though as the numbers get closer to 1 we start to recognise some names that had a lasting impact on the world of gaming, including Mortal Kombat, Wolfenstein 3D and Mario Kart.
