Game box art challenge?


#3946

I thought that would crack it!

I really looked for a photo of the box with the Content Warning label on it. That made such an impression on me when the game came out, because I’d never seen it before.


#3947

Okay, here goes -


#3948

No takers? Okay, next one -


#3949

Grim Fandango


#3950

Going for some bigger reveals here; didn’t think this one would be so tough. Hint: this game taught me the meaning of frustration.


#3951

GT Legends?


#3952

… no. Not quite.


#3953

Gotta be car-related. Test Drive?


#3954

Okay, bigger giveaways here -


#3955

Hah, that’s a great pick! Loved that game.

(not guessing because I don’t have the time to produce a new box)


#3956

It’s only love in the way Stockholm Syndrome is, right? Because the game doesn’t love you back; in fact, it hates the player, actively.


#3957

Well, I loved its approach to fidelity and its uncompromising attitude regarding that. Yes, that also made it harder than the real thing in a way (since you don’t have body/inertia feedback to know when the car is “sliding” out of control, for example) - but it was nonetheless pretty impressive and figuring it out (and finishing a race for the first time) was really rewarding. It was kind of the Dark Souls of racing sims. :)

Granted, I can count the races I finished in one or two hands, but I enjoyed the game for what it was and what it was trying to do.


#3958

I had recognized the car, but not the game. Still proud!


#3959

King’s Quest Racing: The Perils of Pedals


#3960

Advanced Crash On The First Corner Simulator.


#3961

I Couldn’t Be A Rocket Test Pilot, So I Did This Instead


#3962

Okay one last one before … I lose?


#3963

I still have that box in storage somewhere. ;)


#3964

Errrrrrghgghhj I don’t wanna have to post another box, so here’s the gimme -


#3965

Grand Prix Legendary ;) I nominate @Left_Empty to do the next one. He has the best boxes!
