Contra III: The Alien Wars (SNES)
Best game ever.
The travesty is how little Wesley Snipes is given credit for advancing the platform of the superhero. Blade, as far as superhero movies are concerned, is a big deal. He cusses. He seeks revenge. He tortures vampires. He even kills his own mother and nearly drains dry the love interest.
But when you think of edgy performances everyone goes first to Heath Ledger, who plays The Joker, the bad guy.
