During those multimedia-crazy days of the '90s, the prospect of pre-recorded video and sound made for such an enticing proposition that we didn't necessarily need a good game attached.
And while most of these barely interactive adventures can only be called products of their time, a few actually hold up some 20 years later. Take the Sega CD's Panic!, for instance; it's essentially an interactive Monty Python cartoon, where you're asked to do nothing more than occasionally push a button and see what happens. But unlike watching the grainy, FMV antics of D-list celebrities, the many multimedia treasures packed within Panic! are definitely worth pilfering. So join me, as we enter the depths of weirdness on this otherwise ordinary Thursday.
