We will never get games like this again
This depresses me

Now games need to be safe and can't provoke at all. It needs to be politically correct and not offend anyone.

GTA 4, Saints Row, Postal 2, 3, Man Hunt 2, Outlast, are just a few games that step outside of being correct and safe. They are still making games like this at least in America.

Kingpin was one of the linesteppers. Dissenting and didn't give a ♥♥♥♥. That's why it wins as one of the best controversial games ever made. It was ruthless and unforgiving. We liked it like that back in the day, and today, we like to see as much as possible of just the same. It gives you an outlet for all the inner desires to inflict chaos. That is good therapy. Kingpin is great therapy.

GTA V is a fairly offensive game. I mean cannibalism, bisexual lead character, torture scenes, in a AAA release.

Postal 2 is from 2004 or 2003 and Manhunt 2 is also like 2006. Modern games aren't this radical. Even that new Shadow Warrior was heavily altered. I don't find it funny that some kid says ♥♥♥♥ you and stuff (the new Lo Wang). I want the real Lo Wang back who doesn't score with the ladies because he acts like an jerk and who is the man.

YOU NO MESS WITH LO WANG. CHICKEN BAAG BAAG BAAG.. :D

I wish there was at least a spiritual sequel of sorts with a semi-open world or with Deus Ex like hubs. Maybe some gear oriented RPG elements like STALKER.

I got the very first KingPin bootleg around 1992 . It was bootleg because of the cussing and extreme violence . I remeber the first weapon you got was a crowbar for a dollar . That was long before any grand theft auto . This game was top notch for the hardware we had back then compared to what they make now . I wonder how it runs on the hardware now ? It just says for a requirement , "Windows" . I think I ran the original on Dos 5.1 . Not many games ran with windows back then .

I dont know what you mean about safe and not provoke . Theres a lot of very violent games out there . But without games how would we know its so cool to blow your enemy up , with a RPG , twenty feet away .

Yeah I ran it on Win 95 I think, but in the DOS shell. Back in the days when you had to set up your sound cards IRQ and ♥♥♥♥. This game is a classic, so glad to see it re-released :)

I want to add that Kingpin is a game built on top of Quake 2 engine and it is definitely a Windows game. Doom was released in december, 1993. Quake came out in June, 1996. Grand Theft Auto came out in october, 1997. Quake 2 in december, 1997. Kingpin: Life of Crime was released in june, 1999. For an amusing fact Windows 2000 (NT5.0) was released in december, 1999, and Windows XP (NT5.1) was released august, 2001.

I don't know what the hell you guys are talking about Kingpin being an MS-DOS game. That just isn't true. You don't have to tell the sound driver the location of your soundcard in Kingpin. Are you mixing Kingpin: Life of Crime to some other game perhaps?

However McChiken describes the opening scene of the Kingpin: Life of Crime fairly accurately. You start beaten up on an alley with a pipe which you use to beat a near by thug and a hooker and steal their money to buy a crowbar for a dollar from a near by bum.

Oh, and by the way. In Windows 9x platform (Windows 95, 98, ME, etc.) you don't run stuff in "DOS Shell". It's the otherway around. Windows is "a shell" on top of DOS in Windows 9x and it was designed to hide the fact that the OS you're running is in fact a glorified MS-DOS.

Windows 9x consumes system resources like there's no tomorrow. MS-DOS games are dependant on those same resources which meant in many cases that you had to close Windows GUI to be able to run some of the games and other stuff. (And sometimes that wasn't enough and you also had to boot to the real MS-DOS for direct access to some of the system resources.)

Windows also provides hardware abstraction that reserves system resources to itself making it impossible for MS-DOS games that are dependant on direct access to hardware to have it. Windows 9x also provides MS-DOS prompt in which the access to the hardware underneath is controlled and managed through the abstractions Windows provides but it's not the same as the actual MS-DOS.

Some of the more demanding games had lots of trouble with that because the abstraction layer didn't provide access to everything leading to crashes and other issues with the systems running Windows 9x platform.

Its not as old as I thought . 1999 was the date . The computer I thought I ran it on started in dos . It ran windows 3.1 . The CPU was a 80386 . I made a menu that came up when I turned the computer on . Expanded , extended and regular memory were the choices . Different games required different types of memory . But this game was ran on my AMD T-bird with windows 98.

I was remembering it did freeze up sometimes while playing . Could of been the fact I only could afford a low level graphics card .

I stuck the cd in and it wanted to load so hell I might try it . See how it likes a GTX770 .
