Re: Confess Your Unpopular Video Game Opinions

Jag and 3DO are early fifth generation. Genesis, SNES, and Turbografx are fourth.

Third: 8-bit systems post-crash - NES/Master System
Second: 8-bit systems pre-crash - 2600/Intellivision/Colecovision
First: Non-programmable systems - Pong/Odyssey

These examples are obviously not exhaustive.

Re: 2016/11/30: Nintendo 64: Goldeneye 007, 007: The World Is Not Enough, Perfect Dark

"As the spiritual successor to the wildly-popular Goldeneye, you can tell Nintendo spared no expense with Perfect Dark."

These games were made by Rare, not Nintendo.

Re: Favorite "Guilty Pleasure" Video Game

Very interesting defense, goldenband, even if I can't really agree. Thanks for taking the time for it. If the game used giant mechs no one would bat an eye at the weird controls If the game used giant mechs, it would be Heavy Nova , which is even more disliked. It also helps if you've played a lot o...

Re: Favorite "Guilty Pleasure" Video Game

Otherwise I get enjoyment from tons of games people say are unmitigated garbage. Sword of Sodan and Dark Castle on the Genesis, Lord of the Rings Vol. 1 and Drakkhen on the SNES, Bugs (Atari 2600), Flintstones' Bedrock Bowling (PS1)...all of them did a better job of holding my attention than most a...

Re: 2016/11/28: Playstation 4: Skullgirls 2nd Encore (Japan), Touhou Genso Rondo: Bullet Ballet (Japan)

Never heard of the second, but Skullgirls was a pretty big deal when it first came out (mainly because it was great fodder for flamewars). I don't know a whole lot about it, but I do know that Peacock is a girl; you might want to fix that detail of the review. It's also definitely American, regardle...

Re: Bad Games You Have to Play

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (GBA). Nah. It's not great, but it's an incredible technical achievement (you knock it for its resolution and framerate, but while they're low, they're perfectly playable - and this is fully textured 3D on the GBA, so that really means something), and while it's obviousl...

Re: Bad Games You Have to Play

One bad game that I haven't played but would absolutely love to is Jurassic Park: Trespasser . It has the most sophisticated physics engine of 1998, a huge open-world environment of unprecedented detail, and, uh, a floating arm that you wave around to manipulate everything by directly grabbing, push...

Re: Bad Games You Have to Play

Awesome Possum , on the Genesis. Not since the '80s crash had a console game shown such abject contempt for the consumer; to experience that in a 1993 release is genuinely special. Plus, it basically plays itself if you just hold right and A, which is "fun" to see firsthand. Mo Hawk and H...

Re: Happy 15th Anniversary Xbox

There were several things that came together to give the Xbox the push it needed. Halo was one of them. The GameCube's inability to play DVDs was another. Microsoft's impossibly deep pockets were probably the most important of all. I think that there was also a considerable element of patriotism in ...
