Before there were Die Hard movies with ridiculous scenes like jumping out a jet fighter without a parachute and landing on your feet without a scratch, there were only three good ones. Those three were known as the Die Hard Trilogy. During the youth of video game consoles with 3D graphics, a Die Hard Trilogy video game was published for the Sega Saturn and Sony Playstation.
And it was good. Damn good.
Once upon a time, game developers did not give a rat’s ass about good graphics, because they knew it was beyond their reach anyway. So instead they would focus on good game play and design. Whether that is completely true or not, the Die Hard Trilogy video game will make you a believer. The reason is because, like most games from its generation, the 3D graphics were awful, awful, awful.
But how was the game itself? Well this isn’t even one game: it’s three. Get it? Die Hard Trilogy video game? There are three games on one CD rom disk. Yes, the Die Hard Trilogy video game was three games on a freakin’ CD! For you youngsters, that’s no more than 700 megabytes. And you know what? All three games were good. Now keep in mind, video games were no cheaper back then than they are now. So three good games for the price of one was a great value.
A big part of what made these games fun were the gratuitous violence. Blood, blood, blood. Also, sound effects! Yes, all video games have sound effects, but the music and sound clips pulled you in, and made you feel as if you were living the movie. So by all means, if you have a Playstation lying around in your basement with moss growing on it, blow the dust off of it and get Die Hard Trilogy. You won’t be sorry!
