Game changers! A Year in Games – 1997 – STACK | GB Hi-Fi

While the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 consoles started working hard, bolstered by several first-class game releases, SEGA was focused on opening something very big in Sydney…

Japanese racing game fans got a great Christmas gift to go with a traditional KFC dinner in the shape of a PlayStation masterpiece from Polyphony Digital grand touroriginally translated Real Racing Simulator. This was a bold claim, but the racer – which took five years to develop – delivered, offering realistic (at the time) races either on the trails or in more simulation-based modes. Still one of the highest-rated racers of all time, there were 140 real-world vehicles to collect and race on 11 tracks (22 counting inverse variables). Finally, the Australians joined the fun in May 1998.

Game Changers - GoldenEye

Two years after the arrival of the James Bond movie of the same name, there were not many expectations Golden eyes 007 On the Nintendo 64. Then people played it… A first-person shooter with a single-player campaign that combined shooting and stealth as the player got into the shoes of Bond, James Bond, to save London and the world from economic collapse. While this was a lot of fun, what really sold the game was split-screen multiplayer, where up to four players can have a deathmatch in different scenarios. Highly awarded, it is now seen as an important stepping stone in the evolution of multiplayer shooter games on consoles.

Game Changers - Sega World

With Mega Drive just deleted and Saturn failing to take off outside of Japan, it may have seemed an odd time to open a dedicated SEGA-themed entertainment center in the heart of Sydney. However, on March 6, 1997, SEGA World opened in Darling Harbor, with plenty of Sonic the Hedgehog bits and bobs, the requisite plethora of arcade games and a selection of bigger attractions that mostly avoided any of SEGA’s many top-tier programs . There was, however, Sonic Live in Sydney Musical, in which Eggman is shown bumping into Sydney, and later trying to control her. SEGA World closed in November 2000, and the stunning red building was demolished in 2008.
