The lights are on
I'm not much of a political man, but I think the greatest thing to come out of Ronald Reagan's presidency has to be his "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign. I doubt it was very effective, but all I care about is the fact that it helped spawn NARC. If you haven't played it, NARC is a game about crashing sports cars into the ghetto and shooting hobos with rocket launchers. While I may have been four years old when it came out (significantly before my employment at Game Informer), I would have had no issues giving this game a perfect 10 back in 1988. Then again, that might be why we don't have any four year-olds on staff.
If you can't tell by my enthusiasm, this game is awesome. Watch below as we plow through the classic quarter muncher.

Another wonderful candidate for Super Replay. It might be the best one yet, and that's saying something.
Well, Galerians definitely has my vote so far. I played the game when it first came out and beat it. It's not close to 50 hours of gameplay. I remember it being about 8-10 hours long. And the only reason it's three discs is because it is loaded with CG movies, which take up a lot of data.
That was hilarious to hear Dan so excited at the beginning of NARC. Awesomely hilarious replay.
I have a feeling the last 10 seconds of replay with be in my nightmares tonight.
My vote is still on 3, 2, 1, Vampires! I owned Galerians. I enjoyed it a lot. The opening felt very Akira to me, and I loved the pyschic based combat. It got really hard far in, I never beat it. Not the kinda game I want to watch someone try to figure out for hours and hours. Watching you strugle to understand the relationship between your actions and what happened on screen was frustrating. I was screaming at my computer telling you what to do. To stress how strong I feel, I would rather see Dracula, and that game looked terrible.
wow. i think my vote is still with countdown vampires.
I thought i saw Silent hill in the roulette thing....WHY DIDNT YOU CHOOSE THAT ONE???!!!!!
Oh my god NARC is soooo epic! Also, my vote might be swinging towards Galerian (if that's the wrong spelling, mah bad. My short-term memory is basically nonexistent), it really reminded me of Overblood
Unless next week's roulette looks really good, my vote goes to Galerians.
Haven't watched the video yet , but Dan saying you were only 4 when this game came out Really makes me feel old.....
Great Replay as usual! I can't wait to see the last candidate.
Oh man I remember NARC, what a hilarious game. And over 50 hours of gameplay on Galerians!? Sorry guys, but I might have to vote for it just to see you guys suffer through the entire thing.
You should totally do the next super replay of galarians. It's an awesome game.
You have to do Galerians for the super replay it looks awesome.
Oh god, my stomach hurt from laughing by the end of the NARC segement. Well done, guys.
oh my god im crying from laughter hilarious replay
"Of course he can pick up a dumpster, he's on PCP."
"Well I am never going to do PCP. Or maybe I should do it all the time". And to think, I thought this was going to be the newer NARC game.
