I voted for Rex Ronan because the Wikipedia summary made it sound like the greatest thing ever:

Jake Westboro is a man with it all: a wife, a kid and a house in the suburbs. He also has a job with the Blackburn Tobacco Company. As a result of smoking since he was 15, Jake is dying from the cigarettes that he once sold. The player must help the near-microscopic surgeon Rex Ronan travel inside of Jake's body and remove tar, nicotine, precancerous cells, and other health hazards that are preventing Jake from being able to speak to the world about the hazards of tobacco. If the player (Rex Ronan) dies from the evil microbots that were sent by the tobacco company, so does the patient (Jake.)

Entertaining and educational? I'm in!

It sounds like a gooseberry fool version of Microcosm and Microcosm wasn't great.

What a great selection, Dragon! I'd watch the stream for any of those although I shall vote for 007 as it was, I feel, pretty underrated back in the day and stands as a decent follow-on from GoldenEye. I wasn't sure if Pedz could play N64 titles... I hope so!

I thought you only need 10 posts to get to do things? You'll be able to vote by Monday. Just let me know if not :)

Yeah, they do vary, Cumbers; I've not played the PS1 version but by most accounts I believe the N64 version is quite a bit slicker.

Ah! I should be there soon then, Pedz. Ta, man!
