1) Rayman- best selling PS1 game of all time in the UK.

2) The play area of GTA: San Andreas is roughly 17 square miles. Five times the size of Liberty City and four times the size of Vice City.

3) Tomb Raider's Lara Croft was originally called Laura Cruz.

wow that is extremely surprising for what was a crappy platform game. to think it sold more than metal gear solid and the resident evil games??

Fact: Resident Evil 2 was originally going to have a character called Eliza, a 19yr old motorbike expert instead of Claire but the whole thing was scrapped and rebuilt from scratch to create the masterpiece that was RE2.

First videogame urination? I thought it was one of of the characters from Chan & Chan, a 1987 PC Engine game, myself. although that may have just been a character taking a dump... :?

Donkey Kong was never a mistranslation of Monkey Kong. It was so named "Donkey" because he was designed to be stupid rather than evil.
