The Myth and Rarity Behind Blockbuster Exclusive Video Games ----
The newer generation of gamers may not remember Blockbuster Video. However, for those of us of a certain age the rental behemoth is almost impossible to forget. There was a time about 20 years ago when Blockbuster was as ubiquitous as McDonalds.

Boss fights. They’re the one thing that makes or breaks action games. You could have a good run through corridors, dungeons and caves, slaughtering wave after wave of enemies.
