In this survey article, we present some recent results on the asymptotic behavior of four systems of orthogonal polynomials. These are Stieltjes-Wigert, Hahn, Racah and pseudo-Jacobi polynomials. In each case, the variable z is allowed to be in any part of the complex plane. In some cases, asymptotic formulas are also given for their zeros.
