Was that The Legacy: Realm of Terror?
Nope, it was Alone in the Dark 1.

Oh.
I wanted to look like teh l33t master of gaming lore by guessing a rare game. Instead I ended up not recognizing a really REALLY well-known one.  ¬_¬

Nope, but here's another hint


Besides I just learned that this one wasn't exclusive for the console I thought. There was even a DOS port... so Gribbler, you're back in the game (laugh)

I have come to the conclusion that Gribbler is not actually a person, but rather an AI programmed with all the video games ever made.

I'm just a devoted gamer with a little bit of deductive skills. If I don't know the game instantly the process looks something like this (Inindo example): Top-down view, looks like RPG, Asian theme, looks like early 90s, probably '92 or '93, most likely Asian word in the title, and hey, what have we here? Way of the ninja? Must be it. Bingo!

I hope you don't consider this way of guessing a cheating. Because if you do, my pal SkyNet will... eeer... I mean... Danger danger. Compromise. Compromise. Restarting. Three, two, one, initializing...

Well, it is Manhunter... But which part? :)

Hmm... I never played either of them. I'm gonna say... two?

I'll say 13, because I know (think I know) that there were 13 Manhunter games.
