One of these things is not like the other...

Once upon a time, the most desired trait of any home console gamer was to play arcade ports.  In this fashion, one could say that arcades ruled the jungles of electronic video game entertainment.  While complete faithfulness to the arcade original was the holy grail, it was certainly not a requirement, though individual interpretation on the quality of the port was certainly in place, especially in the playgrounds and hallways of schools.

Another episode of But I Like Those Ports! follows, and another three games are presented for your reading pleasure.  In a way, these were the most ambiguous of the small list I drew up of possible games, but it was still hard.  Out of the games left, I might have one more episode left, but who knows.  Perhaps I should start branching out a bit into other territories.

Driv3r appeared on the game market at a bad time.  The game industry was already swimming in the wake created by GTA3, its sequel, GTA Vice City, and the hype generated by the next entry in the series due out but he end of 2004, GTA: San Andreas., Honestly, you couldn't open a magazine without seeing coverage from one or two "sandbox" games.  But Driv3r did have one thing going for it, that being lineage.  While many of the GTA copycats out there had nothing more to go on than genre similarity, Driv3r already had street cred, with two games out that were pretty popular during their respective times.  Despite this, it turned into a failure, and after a few ports (PC, GBA, and mobile), it disappeared forever.  But, could Driv3r be all that bad?
