Re: Dave, NASCAR?

I'd love to see a review of Bill Elliott's as well! That was a game I had to track down once I started collecting for the NES. This strongly coincides with the video game memories topic for me, as I remember a good friend and his dad completing the entire Daytona 500 (all 200 laps - and winning) on ...

Re: ABC Monday Night Football (SNES)

I had the DOS version, and played it quite a bit. It had a playbook editor that was pretty strong, actually. I would usually flip back and forth between this game and the original John Madden (also on DOS). If I was in the mood for a simulation, I'd choose Madden, but if I was in the mood for graphi...

Re: VGC Anti Atari??

The closest thread I can find is this Atari 7800 thread: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/231157-atari-7800-system-review-by-the-videogamecritic/?hl=%20videogamecritic%20%20bias%20%20atari From what I can tell most posts agree with you; the 7800 might've been a good system , but most games availabl...

Re: Who didn't own a NES in the 80's?

I got a 2600 from my cousins in about 86 or 87. I was 7 or 8, and friends had an NES. I still loved that 2600, even though I knew it wasn't state-of-the-art. That was my only console until I bought myself a Genesis in 1993. That Genesis is still my favorite console. I eventually bought a Retron 2 in...

Re: Free Xbox Hardware Plan?

If that is the future of video games, I'll stay in the past. And be very happy with it - I've got hundreds of carts and discs I haven't played yet. For some reason, I just keep buying more...

Re: 2018/8/20: Sega 32X: RBI Baseball '95

I can't speak to the SNES very well, other than the Ken Griffey games were fun the few times I played them. So many great choices for the Genesis. I think the World Series Baseball games are widely viewed as classics for the Genesis. My personal choice is 96, but all are good. I really love La Russa...

Re: Genesis Pirates Gold! Help!?

Boy, I could talk for hours about this game. I'll try to keep this brief to get you started... First, choose a time period of 1620 - 1660. Earlier than that, there aren't many towns to attack or land at; later than that there are very few wars making promotions hard to come by Second, be any nationa...

Re: "The Tetris Effect"

Definitely experienced this from Tetris. Staring at tile floors or ceiling tiles and seeing tetris patterns, dreaming about playing, etc. Hearing the song over and over in my head... Absolutely.

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

I highly respect the opinion of this reviewer, but I must say that it is not acceptable to review a game that you have not finished. If you dislike the game and choose to quit early, more power to you. I have abandoned many games that did not suit me. That being the case, however, you are not quali...
