Kingpin: Life of Crime
If you wanted to be a gangsta back in the day.....
...this is the game you would get. The thing I remember the most is the lingo. You could talk trash or praise someone. Depending on your actions they could simply say "Hows it going homie?" The could attack you on site, it you trash talked them. Or if you were really rude they would put a cap in your butt. And not only them but like 10 of their guys. Turf I think was also a big issue. I also remember you bought your items in pawn shops. *I think* You could get body armor on the streets once you could afford it. The graphics were also the best in their day. Also this game was renown for it's cursing. I think the whole US government back in the 90's had some sort of session or meeting with congress about it.
If you want to know more, buy the game.
