Re: Let's Talk About Final Fantasy XV

Add me to the list of "I liked Final Fantasy before FFX" ranks. I genuinely love FFs 1-8, (the actual 3rd was never released in english, so I haven't played that one, but I have 1-2 on PS, as well as 5. (I bought them back in the 90's when they were re-releasing them.) I also played FF7 so...

Re: The 8-bit Home Computer Users Thread

Haven't read this really long thread, but I want to add that I LOVED my apple IIe, I used to log a lot of hours into fantasy games like Wizardry, The Bards Tale, Tale of Xyphus, and old MUDS like Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. I've tried some emulators for the old style, but it hasn't done it for ...

Re: Bad Games You Have to Play

For the NES, I think having a gamer play Deadly Towers, Athena, Urban Champion or Hydlide will at least inform them as to what high-profile games are considered among the worst in the NES library according to the general public. Keeping in mind that these were games found on every store shelf as I ...

Re: Bad Games You Have to Play

Alright... I have 3 to add to this list from my own collection: 1) Batman Forever (Snes): One of the worst games ever made, as the critics review can attest too. The controls are really bad, the difficulty is insane, (in part because of the controls) it is REALLY tough to know where to go next, I re...

Re: Happy 15th Anniversary Gamecube

I have to agree with the greatness of the GC as well. It has probably been consistently the most played 'party system' over the years. My friends like Smash Bros. Melee over Brawl (the Wii version) so when they're around the cube is still the system that is played. I think it is the last genuine con...

Re: Great Moments in Gaming

I think one of my favorite gaming moments was Big Boo's Haunt in Super Mario 64. It seemed like every other Mario style Ghost House like from Super Mario World and Paper Mario and other games, but then I did the Red Coin Hunt star in that world. When I got into the room with the piano, that thing j...

Re: Sega Genesis Classic Console (2016)

There were other permanent deaths from the era; it was just rare that a character with any potential was cut down. Phantasy Star, meanwhile, loved that trope. IV introduced us to Alys, who was strong enough to help out new players, while encouraging their growth. Of course her first instinct, when ...

Re: Games you used to like, but aged like milk.

This whole thing with people trashing Goldeneye is so ridiculous. It makes me wonder do these people not even like James Bond? Because I'm a huge James Bond fan and I love the game. Would you rather be playing Magic the Gathering or watching Marvel movies? If so, I understand such a weak opinion on...

Re: Sega Genesis Classic Console (2016)

Phantasy Star II. This was one of the most memorable RPG experiences of my youth. A very different experience (in many ways) from the Final Fantasy games everyone was playing on Nintendo systems. I love this game too but I can't imagine playing it without the extensive maps you constantly need to r...

Re: 2016/11/2: Playstation: Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain

Long time lurker, now starting to post. I agree for the most part with this review. Playing through the various Legacy of Kain games really is more of an exercise in story appreciation than game play. I personally like the whole "suck blood out of them with magic power" bit that the game i...
