^Damn right! I still don't understand why the idea of mixing anime with FPS gameplay didn't catch on.

Only other well-known FPS I can think of right now that had anime parody references as part of its theme was probably Shadow Warrior. lol That was released, what, a year prior to Shogo? But I think Shogo is still the first to be a Western FPS game fully stylized like anime.

True, Shadow Warrior did contain anime references here and there (who remembers the bathing anime girls?). But they didn't define the overall theme of the game. Shogo, however, lived or died by its anime influence.

I have three copies of shogo desu~ Two linux ones (bought it on tuxgames, didn't arrive, got replacement, then ordered one arrived far too late XD) and bought he windows version on gog.com :D

It was awesome! It's actually (almost?) my all time favourite game, at least my all time favorite shooting game. It's the suck they cancelled shogo 2 even tough that was apparently in production at some point in time And it would probably have looked pretty cool given that the engine they made for it went on to be the basis of this game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2xGra3iQvU For a game that's 10 years old (!!) it looks completely 100% o-mega sugoi!

Other favourite game might be the old 1998 space sim freespace 2, also 6 dollars on gog.com, and especially ncie because of the gazillion of graphic updates and mods available for it on hard-light.net including 2 complete conversions - anime style- . The original now looks like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDU8KW0SxK8 Spaceships going ka-boom! WEEEEE!!

One of Monoliths weaker games, but still, a very enjoyable title with a lot of character and love put into it.

Outshined easily by Blood, NOLF 1 and 2, and of course, FEAR.
