Title
Psychedelic Frenzy
This is a really underrated classic of the early PC gaming era, I've never ever seen an idea this avant-garde from those years, and even by today's standards this can be considered.. weird, spacious (but technologically really impressive) empty environments, odd design choices, odd game design choices aswell, but it all comes down to a really enjoyable experience. I guess some people find a lot of the elements of this game way too gritty against their own good, but for me an idea of a dud with a gigantic tank missile instead of a head which is actually a hypersonic sniper rifle is a great one. One thing though.. The ending is just simply fucked up. There is no other way to describe it without spoilering it.

Title
MDK is a stylish third-person shooter that, surprisingly, packs all the fast, smooth action of the great first-person shooters of its time, avoiding the third-person trap of being slow and clunky like many in its genre were. It's fun and holds up well despite its repetitive gameplay and some odd level design.

Title
Originally released in 1997, MDK tells the story of Kurt Hectic, a janitor who reluctantly attempts to save Earth from an alien invasion of gigantic strip mining vehicles called Minecrawlers. Aided by his boss -- a possibly insane inventor and scientist named Dr. Fluke Hawkins -- and a robotic, two-legged/four-armed dog named Bones, Kurt must infiltrate each Minecrawler, fight his way to the pilot, and kill them before returning to Hawkins' in-orbit space station. Since this game's developers were attempting things never before seen in a Windows game, MDK's programming language had to be written from scratch. Further, every level was primarily designed by a different developer which lends each its own unique look and feel. Upon release, MDK was such a critical and commercial success that the publisher -- Interplay Entertainment -- decided to immediately begin work on a sequel, however the MDK team had already started on Giants: Citizen Kabuto. Unwilling to wait, Interplay pressed on with a new developer and MDK2 launched in 2000.
