Of course Tifa won "Hottest Game Babe". Strangely enough, Lara Croft wasn't the runner-up on this one, but Laura Lewis from Enemy Zero on the Saturn was. Clearly nobody on staff was comfortable picking a hot dude for their 'best hunk' category, as their runner-up is Abe from Abe's Oddyssee. Umm...Duke Nukem, anybody? Anyone else find it ironic that the magazine which has had Lara Croft on their cover more times than anybody else is also throwing a "Most Overexposed" award No surprise, the PlayStation and Game Boy come out the clear winners in the battle royale, while the Sega Saturn and Genesis bring up the rear. Both the Miyamoto biography and behind-the-scenes look at controller creation are fascinating pieces which remain relevant even today. The super game list doesn't list everything the magazine ever reviewed. They omit plenty of software from the smaller systems like the CD-i and the Neo Geo, and ignore everything prior to the 16-bit generation, but still...this is one incredible index with some great artwork thrown in throughout, and some little side-bars about titles worth a second look, and miniature essays on subjects like why Link's Awakening is the best Zelda game. Really cool! Saturn Bomberman supports up to 10 players simultaneously. 'Best Tricks of the Year' includes a massive sidebar detailing ten great internet sites to use for finding cheat codes. Needless to say, they're all defunct at this point. Man, remember Happy Puppy? People are still trying to find that Lara Croft nude code. EGM2 did it as an April Fools joke in issue 34. Somebody forgot to label the cheat codes for Command & Conquer and Crusader: No Remorse in the Saturn section. This makes it look like Bug Too! is an absolutely insane game. According to a sidebar, the Konami Code is the most-overused cheat code of all time.
