The lights are on
Most everyone that played Twisted Metal 1 and 2 back in the day has
fond memories of them. Their cartoonish brand of mayhem and sick sense
of humor resulted in great sales numbers and an enthusiastic fanbase,
before 989 Studios took over and tarnished the series' good name. It
may have experienced a great rebirth via Twisted Metal: Black on the
PS2, but the original Playstation titles by Singletrac laid the
groundwork for all subsequent car combat titles (a genre that's been
sorely underrepresented in recent years).
In this new segment we
utilize our extensive vault to play through each PSone Twisted Metal
title in order, and even try out the vehicular combat experiments
Singletrac developed after losing the franchise name. Do the original
classics hold up over a decade later? Are 3 and 4 as bad as we remember
them being? Does Tim Turi fail miserably in his attempt to blow up the
Eiffel Tower? The answer to the last question is yes. Check out the
video below to relive the 32-bit vehicular combat experience.

Jeez, I thought I was the only one that remembered the twisted metal games. I used to play these for hours on end. I miss them. A new one would be great. I wonder, is there any news on any possible twisted metal games in the future?

Great memories! I am not a huge fan of destruction/shooting/etc genre, but I still loved this game for some reason! I don't remember the name of it, but a friend had me borrow an XBox game that seemed like a similar style and it was awful! This is a stand out, one of a kind, great game!
