In tribute, Ken shares his experiences calling Sega over the years.
Virgin Interactive gave Sega gamers plenty of reasons to be happy, releasing some of the best platforming and action titles of the era. During this period, Brandon Humphreys played a solid role in creating many of Virgin’s biggest hits, including Aladdin and RoboCop vs. Terminator.

RPG fans looking for some adventure on their Game Gear should give Defenders of Oasis a try.
