    It’s Warhawk. It was the follow up to the original PlayStation game of the same name. I got rid of my copy, once I’d gotten bored with it. The whole 6 axis controls ruined the whole experience for me.

    I'm 62 years old now ( I was 42 when I joined DP ) so I'm not as concerned as some of the younger collectors....which is kind of a sobering thought lol. I'm happy with the way that the Switch has a selection of older RPG ports (was skipping around the room the day I bought that Grandia HD Collection in physical form recently, since I'd foolishly gotten rid of my Dreamcast copy for some crazy reason) and the Switches' virtual consoles are nice to have. I'm trying to finish as many games as I can now, but eventually down the road my son will take ownership of the stuff and it would be nice if they were still playable for him. Which begs another thought. If the games no longer function, or the consoles are extinct, will they hold any sort of value in an "unplayable" state?

    Probably, at least for display items. If sealed games hold value when they'll never be played then other non-playable games would have some type of value, if working games become a rarity by comparison.

    Oh yeah, I remember that one. I didn’t bother with it, because I knew it was the next Warhawk.
