Re: Anyone hyped for Samus Returns

I agree. I remember playing Super Mario Sunshine in 2002, right in the middle of an unprecented era of no 2d games. This was before the 2d Mario on Wii. So at that point, in 2002, it had been 11 years since there was a 2d Super Mario game with Mario as the main character. That was just insane. Think...

Re: Nokia N-Gage/Tapwave Zodiacs it the Sega 32X/3DO/Atari Jaguar of portable gaming?

Not everyone holds the 5th generation in high esteem. In fact, if I had my choice, I'd pick the 3do and Jaguar over the PS1 and N64. Some people act like the PS1 is a must have, that you can't live without it. But I'll take a 3do over a system with garbage, GARBAGE graphics, long load times, and ext...

Re: Games that killed/ruined the genres Reception in certain regions/consoles/gave negative stigmas, etc?

There was a push in the mid 1990's to get rid of 2d. It wasn't just shmups, it was everything.

Re: The 8-bit Home Computer Users Thread

That's really interesting about using video game controllers for computer games. I thoroughly enjoyed the 8-bit home computer generation; there were so many great games.

Re: What Franchises Need to Return

I'd like to see Sega return to the football market. Obviously they can't do it, but I wish the NFL 2k series could return. To me, in retrospect, that was a special franchise. I also would like toe see Sega return to the college football market. The Bill Walsh series was unbelievable.

Re: I Like Short Games

I think there's a reservoir of great short games from the 80's-90's. Games that are short can have a lot of replayability. A game that takes 30 minutes to complete can have a number of playable characters offering different playing experiences. That can contribute to a game like that having 20-30 ho...

Re: New Music Thread

That's interesting about Warrant, I might check have to check that out. Although I don't know who can replace their original singer, Jani Lane. I actually thought they put out a couple really good albums in the early 90's.

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

Honestly, I'd never seen load times as long as the PS1's when I first played it. I remember around 1998-2000 somewhere around then just being so mad at the load times and contemplating if it was even worth the aggravation. It was the first video game system I ever played that just gave me a bad feel...

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

I don't really understand how one could say the PS1 is great because of RPG's and then dismiss the Neo Geo because it had few genres. I don't despise RPG's like I used to and could maybe, maybe see myself trying one out one day. I challenge someone to play Die Hard Trilogy on PS1 and not puke.

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

This is a great topic. For overrated it's easy. It's the PS1. That system has egg on its face if you ask me. The crude graphics and load times just beat you down. I strongly disagree that the Neo Geo is overrated. It being only for arcade games and short on genres actually is a great thing if you li...
