The SNES mini is Nintendo's last chance for me

This wasn't big news yesterday, but apparently ThinkGeek (owned by GameStop) had several hundred NES minis for sale at about 2:00 pm yesterday. They were priced between $140 and $170. I *still* would have bought one at three times the MSRP because I really wanted one for my kids, but I found out lat...

Re: Why do people like RPGs?

I think separating JRPGs and WRPGs is imperative to understanding why someone gets into the genre-- or one of the two sub genres in this case. For example, I LOVE Japanese role playing games but after trying Western classics like Skyrim, Drage Age Origins/Inquisition, Fallout 3, etc etc, I have made...

Re: Is Silent Hill HD Collection really that bad?

Digital Foundry analyzed every version of Silent Hill 2. The GH version on PS2, played on an SD CRT TV, is the definitive way to play the game. Everything from shadows to textures to fog to framerate are the best in that version. Why GH over the original PS2 release? It has the little bit of extra c...

Re: Most valuable game?

I also wanted to mention that many of these posts make me jelly. Snatcher? Panzer Dragoon Saga? Hagane?

Re: Should nintendo drop the gimmicks?

Nintendo's biggest problem isn't hardware gimmicks or sequel fatigue. Their biggest problem is meeting demand for their systems. I've never seen a company behave the way they do. It seems they're more concerned about lining the pockets of resellers than they are with respecting their customers. Inst...

Re: Most valuable game?

I have about 12 or so games for the PS1 that are worth over $100 including Suikoden II, R-Type Delta, Valkyrie Profile, Tales of Destiny, Tales of Destiny II and a few others. My copy of Team Buddies would probably go for around $210 or so. But my most rare/expensive PS1 game would be Misadventures ...

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

Agree with mbd36 and pt on the PS1's visuals. Of course the 3D polygons haven't aged well for the most part. They're over 20 years old and it was a very ugly but necessary step to bring gaming into the 3rd dimension. But Saturn and yes, even the N64 have incredibly ugly 3D games, too. The Saturn was...

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

Wow! NES the most overrated?! CONTROVERSY!! Ha ha. @CaptainCruch - Agree with you that the Wii is underrated. After the hype died down most gamers saw shovelware and a small handful of first party titles. Truth is there are a ton of hidden gems. With apologies to the GameCube and Wii U, the Wii migh...

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

I figured I'd be taken to task over my claim of N64 as most overrated. You guys had some great points and I'm happy to hear it's Voor's favorite system. I like hearing differing opinions and im happy so many people found so much to love about a system I really don't care for. @PT - I'd say I half ag...
