Re: Definitive Football Game

Jon: To me, there is no debate here... Tecmo Super Bowl for the NES. Since you didn't mention it in your original post, I'm assuming you haven't played it. Get on that ASAP. As for NFL 2K5, great game, way ahead of its time. A couple years ago, I played through about 2 full seasons of it, and I can ...

Re: Steam Machines?

I just learned about these for the first time a week ago, which made me realize how out of touch I've become with the modern gaming industry. To me, the appeal of them is being about to sit on your couch and play, with the gaming streamlined almost as well as it is on consoles. Sure, you can hook up...

Re: Good Resident Evil clones?

The Clock Tower series comes to mind. I played the first Clock Tower (Playstation) a few years back and liked it. The D series should be along the same lines too, although I've never played them. For X-Files fans, there's the X-Files: Resist or Serve (Playstation 2), but it's not worth playing for n...

Re: What is the appeal of Fighting games? Do people actually like these things? (with POLL)

Whoa I didn't know we could do polls! That's wild!! Yeah, it's funny, because I was actually about to post a topic suggesting that you add the ability to do polls into the forums. I don't know, I just love polls, and it's great to have them in a forum. Then, suddenly, I saw the "Polls" op...

Will gamer expectations and the cost of making games eventually kill the industry?

I saw the Critic's topic about this year being a bad year for games so far, and it got me thinking... Will consumer expectations and the rising costs of making games someday kill the industry? Throughout gaming history, gamer expectations have risen year after year. What was considered a great game ...

Re: What is the appeal of Fighting games? Do people actually like these things? (with POLL)

P.S. If you picked one of the first two options, please explain! I'm not trying to bash fighting games here; I'm genuinely trying to get a handle on the reason that many people seem to love these games.

What is the appeal of Fighting games? Do people actually like these things? (with POLL)

Ok fighting game fans, help me out. My entire gaming life, I have failed to grasp the appeal of fighting games (one-on-one fighting games; i.e., Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, etc.... but, for purposes of this discussion, I don't mean games like Super Smash Bros., which have a different sort of appe...

Re: Plagiarism?

Critic, it does appear that Racketboy completely removed the Astal review from the original page you linked us to-- however, check this out: http://www.racketboy.com/retro/best-undiscovered-sega-saturn-games On that page, they directly quote your entire review. However, they do give full credit to y...

Re: Most and Least Comfortable Controllers

I think the Xbox 360 controller is the pinnacle of gaming controllers, taking the best aspects of every controller that preceded it. PS2 was decent too, but Xbox 360 has better sticks. I disagree about the Genesis. Personally, I've been playing the Neo Geo CD lately and I love the small "kidney...

Re: Sega SG-1000

I've never played it, but I've had some minor interest in acquiring one for years (but, like you, not enough to interest to fork over a few hundred dollars). As you probably know, it came out in 1983 and only in Japan. Technologically, it's closest console cousin is the Colecovision. A book I have (...
