Did you ever think...?

Did you ever think it was weird that Atari, Mattel, and Coleco made games for <em>each other's competing consoles</em>?<br /><br />Did you ever think it's weird that there are more magazines on news stands devoted to knitting, model trains, and tattoos than to video games?<br /><br />Did you ever th...

Question about early systems...

Video games are a lot like any other form of entertainment.  If you grew up playing Pong, and then the VCS and Intellivision came along, you'd think they were the most amazing things ever.  In your mind, their form of often repetitive, high-score based gameplay was how games were to be pla...

games that haven't aged well

I tend to think certain genres is games don't age well. As an example, a lot of the old 3-D racers (Pole Position, Hang On, Night Driver, etc.) feel horrible today. The sense of...I don't know...weight...is absent in those games. Sega Rally and Gran Turismo sort of ruined older racing games for me.

Best arcade or retro compilations?

Taito Legends 1 and 2 for PS2 are pretty good, as is the Data East Arcade Classics on Wii.

There are Atari and Intellivision compilations for DS, too. The touch screen makes an okay version of the Inty keypad for games that use it.

Smash Bros 3DS Demo

Never heard anyone complain about too many character options in a fighting game... Maybe if they were in some of that "top shelf" Nintendo DLC they'd be okay? But seriously, I will probably still get Smash for the Wii U. Not many options for decent games in the coming months/years, and I can probabl...

Smash Bros 3DS Demo

I tried the 3DS demo of Smash Bros.  Is this series just one of those things you "get" or "don't get"?<br /><br />I guess I don't get it.  Maybe it takes 4 people together in a room to make it fun.<br /><br />As a side note, I feel the same way about Powerstone.<br /><br />Thoughts?<br /><...
