Re: Best game on every console you've owned?

My OCD nature means that I like organization, and therefore lists. Great choices; fun read!

Re: Emulated vs. Original format?

Most RPGs (and Strategy RPGs) from back in the day benefit from save states, no question. By the end of the 16-bit era, game devs had realized how tedious it was to grind for an hour, get destroyed by a boss and then have to grind that hour again and hope for a better outcome with the boss. Save poi...

Re: Best game on every console you've owned?

Oh wow... I don’t know if I can remember every console I’ve owned! Let’s see if I can do this off the top of the dome. Atari 8 bit computer - Oils Well NES - Mega Man 2 Game Boy - Donkey Kong ‘94 Genesis - Shinobi III Game Gear - Aladdin SNES - Zelda: A Link to the Past TG16/PCE - Soldier Blade PCE-...

Re: Best Wario game?

I’d give a third nomination to Warioland 4. Amazing execution and very unique in Nintendo’s bloated 2d platforming catalogue. ESauce already mentioned it, but I’ve always found Shake It! to be one of the most underrated games on the Wii. Continues Wario’s trend of unique platforming, it also has gor...

Re: Best casual games?

How about Tetris? The original universal (casual?) game! I don’t know that I’d classify Persona 3 as a casual game. JRPGs are something that really only core (or “hardcore,” if you will) type gamers play. I just can’t see someone who is only superficially into games spending 95+ hours on a very visu...

Re: Nintendo Labo

For people defending Nintendo’s pricing on this thing and telling detractors to reserve judgement before calling it a half-baked $60-ish game and $10- 20 worth of cardboard, remember that this is Nintendo. I don’t think it’s unfair to look at Nintendo’s history; even their recent history. 1-2 Switch...

Re: Sega Dreamcast/Sega Naomi emulation incoming for the Nintendo Switch!

While this is great, I certainly *hope* a modern system like the Switch is able to emulate 20 year old hardware...

Re: Your GOTY 2017 titles

1. NieR: Automata - the best original gaming soundtrack I’ve ever heard, the best gaming story I’ve ever experienced and simply one of the greatest games I’ve ever played. 2. Persona 5 - my most anticipated game since The Last of Us. 100 hours of amazing. 3. Horizon Zero Dawn 4. Zelda: Breath of the...

Re: Xenoblade Chronicles Wii vs 3DS

This will only play on the *New* 3DS. Keep that in mind. I played it on the Wii and I thought the Classic Controller worked very well. I also have Xenoblade on 3DS and on a technical level, it’s better on the Wii.

Re: Pick only one console per generation.

Let’s see here.... 3rd gen: NES Runaway victory. 4th gen: SNES Runaway victory, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t great games on Gen & PCE/PCE-CD. 5th gen: Saturn Choosing between Saturn and PS1 isn’t easy, but better 2D and better shmups/fighters/arcade games gives Saturn the “W.” 6th gen: PS2...
