April 8th - G
Golden Axe (1989 Sega)- Side scrolling, multiplayer, dragon axing, magic blasting, 16-bit awesomeness! I mean, look at the cover! That guy IS the beast master! And that chick invented yoga! And that dwarf is contemplating knee replacement. It was because of this game that I originally bought a Sega Genesis. I have the soundtrack... But it hasn't withstood the test of time as some do.
Special Mentions: Gradius III - Great side-scrolling space shooter. Still fun to play.
Guitar Hero - This game and all its offshoots are fun with friends... But if you have enough spare time to master the expert setting, then you clearly have the timing and hand-eye coordination to LEARN TO PLAY A REAL GUITAR. </soapbox>
Green Day - One of my biggest influences. I learned to play guitar listening to their music. I've seen them in concert once (in 1998 I think). My band actually covers several Green Day songs, my favorite being She. What can I say? It was made for bass guitar.
Special Mentions: Gravity Kills, Garbage - Because I'm happy when it rains, Gotye - If you haven't heard of them, you should check these guys out.
