Credit Crunch, thoughts?

Space Giraffe has been found out, hence the leaderboards stagnating though. Totally agree about leader boards though, Pinball FX and the older games really benefit. I think they missed a trick with the triggerheart keader boards, having to achieve a minimum score is ok, but when you cant see your fr...

Yes, that's what I'm talking about. @The Universal: You mean Ozma Wars, right? I never played it, I'll give it a try. I'd say The Eidolon is an early example of a FPS, although not quite as we play them today. Yup, and its an awesome if somewhat tough game to boot. Atari's I Robot was the first gam...

Phnatasy Star was the first game to introduce the "False boss" concept which is now a staple of RPGs.

Well Osamar Wars by SNK was the first game to feature a replenishable health bar rather than instant death, Health bars are a staple of almost all games today.
