Re: Bases Loaded (NES)

Imagine if Bases Loaded was endorsed by Major League Baseball! Indeed. I remember that's why a lot of people flocked to RBI Baseball back in the day. I think The Critic more or less nailed it in his reviews of the series, that the original Bases Loaded was one of those games that "got it right...

Re: Bases Loaded (NES)

Boston was my favorite team, what's was yours? Jersey. Paste all day, baby!! When I would play this game with my buds, using New Jersey was almost like a cheat code. I remember that their pitches weren't the best, the in the hands of an actual second player, it didn't matter. Their batters, though ...

Re: GameStop selling comics...

They do sell retro games on their website, but you never know the condition of the product. Speaking from experience, I have bought dozens, if not hundreds of retro games and controllers from GameStop's website, and have had very few problems along the way. Most of the cartridges I've bought have b...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

Main thing I have to say is be careful about speaking for other people when they have not responded to this particular thread. If they want to be involved in this conversation they can speak for themselves. Well said, Rev. This was my main takeaway when I first started reading this thread. I, for o...

Re: Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Sega Master System)

It's kind of funny how you remember not so much the game itself, but the things in your life happening when you first played. Your memories of games seem to center on what drug you were doing when you played it :lol: I can honestly say that I wouldn't be the man I am today, or be in the place I am ...

Re: Compulsive video gaming = mental health condition?

I don't see how this is much different from being addicted to online gambling or even social media. I think it's rare, but a legitimate issue. Well said, both ways. The article I read relating to this issue also posed the question of social media / smartphone addiction. I think I notice this way, w...

Re: It's the little things...

I've been meaning to chime in on this thread for a while now. When I first read it, I thought, "I could contribute to this, but nothing's coming to mind yet." Plus, the longer I waited, the more I read others' responses, and many of the examples here are things I, too, have noticed over th...

Re: Switch Owners, how is your library shaping up?

I wonder if there's a Switch game based on lumberjack competitions. If not I claim dibs on the concept. For the record in two player mode the winner is the guy with the most fingers left. Sounds like we need a copyright on Chainsaw Sculpture Artist 2K18 DX Gold Edition HD Ver. ASAP!! I’m contemplat...

Re: Switch Owners, how is your library shaping up?

I really need to expand my collection but the yard work is zapping my time and money. Bruh. Ain't that the truth?? My wife and I rent our home, but it's built into our lease agreement that we're responsible for all upkeep of the yard and surrounding areas. Sure, we've had a good time planting some ...

Re: Paragraphs?

There are two main reasons I keep coming back to this site, and why I actually wanted to join the community here on The Video Game Critic. First off, I like that The Critic is not afraid to voice his opinion, as it gives the reviews on the site a certain charm, and makes me, as a reader, feel like I...
