I'll jist throw out the spoilers now. Outside of wing commander 3 and 4, I'll be playing voyeur 1 and 2, the mad dog mccree games, who shot Johnny Rock, Wirehead, Supreme Warrior, Zork nemesis, zork grand inquisitor, Double Switch and that is just the beginning!

Nobody is going to play any of the LaserActive Sega or NEC PAC LaserDisc titles?

I'm looking forward to reading your reviews of all those games after you finish them.

I haven't beaten many (any?) '90s FMV games myself. By that I mean '90s games which utilize live actor FMV nearly exclusively to convey the gameplay. So this will be an unusual experience for me. I may not have the gaming chops to handle stuff this hardcore. I'll do the best I can though.
PLAY KING'S FIELD.

Huh, turns out I already have a few of these things. This would be a good a time as any to try them out. I'm thinking Phantasmagoria, but Harvester sounds like some fucked up kinda fun too.

I just realized that if we're being super-liberal with the definition of FMV games, then Dance Dance Revolution and Beatmania IIDX count because they have some sorts of music videos, including a fair number of live-action ones.

Surely the PS2 and original Xbox versions I've been playing are old enough to count as retro. So... I guess I'll be unintentionally participating next month as part of my normal routine?

Elkin specifically said the FMV game choices are supposed to be from 1990-1999.

Ah, that just leaves me with DDR 2nd Mix or pre-IIDX Beatmania. :P

(I'm not going to seriously consider those as Together Retro games, even I can recognize a stretch)

Oh dude, you would dig harvester. I didn't like it, but it is beyond fucked up.

Is Bad Mojo also an FMV game where you play as a roach? I always equated it to Harvester in my mind for some reason.
