Turbografx question.

Dracula X has a little (very little) joke game that runs in a PC-Engine CD with the System 2.0 card.

Must Have Games for the NES?

Here's a few Famicom-only games that are really good.<br /><br />Magical Doropie - Localized as Krion Conquest, which someone already mentioned.  But the localized release had most of the cutscenes eliminated.  There's an English patch for the Famicom original. <br /><br />Moon Crystal - S...

Most imprressive thing on the NES?

Playing Super Mario Bros. 3 for the first time and finding you can see all the levels at once laid out on a map.  And then came the fire-breathing piranha plants and para-goombas.  Finally, being able to carry the koopa shells.  It impressed me to no end how they expanded everything f...

Why Didn't The NES Version Of Donkey Kong Have All Four Levels?

Most early NES carts (the black box games) were 16 kilobytes in size, and it might have taken a 32K rom (the size of Super Mario Bros.) just to add that one screen with lots of unused space left over.  That pie level was probably cut because it's kind of a no-brainer compared to the other three...

Ebay prices

<p>It's not much fun collecting used games anymore.  At one point almost any given NES title was cheap except for Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior 2-4.  As recently as 2011 I found Gargoyle's Quest II at a Vintage Stock for $10... pretty amazed to find these buy-it-nows asking for $70 with...

Most Aggravating Levels of All Time

Down the Tubes (Earthworm Jim) - Someone shoulda told Dave Perry to save that control scheme for Resident Evil.<br /><br />Control Center (Goldeneye N64) - I hate any mission where you have to protect useless sack for five minutes.  See also "defend the energy totem" in Turok 2.<br /><br />Zero...

Funniest Games You Played

Do unintentionally funny games count?  Castle Shikigami 2 and Last Alert.

Mario RPG actually works as comedy.  Don't worry, a little fall isn't gonna hurt you!

2013/12/17: Playstation 2: Mega Man Anniversary Collection, Mega Man X Collection

Unlockable games are awesome.  One time my friend got the Sonic Genesis collection and we had a blast discovering all the hidden stuff on it.  I dunno, it seems kinda silly to complain about that when you're going to play all the games anyway.<br /><br />The animal reploids in Megaman X we...

Help me with "The Legend of Zelda."

I would love to forget everything about the Zelda games (And Castlevania:  SOTN).  You should try to figure it all out by yourself.

Earthbound on WiiU

Earthbound (Mother 2) is basically a Dragon Quest clone that turns the 50's nuclear family into a trippy nightmare.  It's disarmingly simple and might even be the first retro game (It came out in 1994 but self-consciously belongs to the 1991 SNES line-up).  Some features break with traditi...
