Stiq Figures, December 17 - 23: Chaos in the Windy City Edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter. Every week, we take a look at, uh, something – meanwhile, the previous week's Japanese hardware sales figures are posted after the jump, and a discussion of said figures takes place in our comments. It may not be conventional, but it's a time-honored Joystiq tradition.


You've probably heard of Shaq Fu. While Shaquille O'Neal is known in the gaming world for the atrocious 2d fighting game bearing his name, the greatest basketball player of all time went a little more under the radar. Michael Jordan kept his likeness out of the cherished NBA Jam (as he reached his own licensing agreement with the NBA in 1992).

So we're looking back on a game Jordan did star in, and it's not Jordan vs. Bird; it's the awful 1994 SNES platformer Michael Jordan: Chaos in the Windy City. I'll be the first to admit that I played this game a lot, probably too much for my own good. Although any amount of time with this game is too much for one's well-being.
