Re: Most polarizing video games and why?

Can you think of any games that are loved by average/casual gamers but hated by the critics and video game snobs?

There's a lot of this in movies, music and books so it must exist to some degree in video games.

Re: Most hypocritical video game reviewer moments?

Irate Gamer isn't technically a reviewer. He's a bad Youtube comedian doing the same schtick as the Angry Video Game Nerd making fun of old games and not to be taken seriously. He exaggerates flaws of games for humor sake. Aren't most professional reviewers beholden to their sponsors and the general...

Re: Ever buy a console for one specific game?

Original XBOX for Ninja Gaiden which I did not complete. I think I reached level 11 and the ice caverns before giving up.

Re: Any fans of "Awesome Games Done Quick"?

This run of Marble Madness with one player beating two player mode with two controllers is amazing.

Two early examples are Dragon Spirit and Vice Project Doom on the NES.

Re: Sg-1000 console review.

It looks like a decent little system based on the Critic's grades. Thus far 11 games have an average to good rating and only 5 have a D or F.

The graphics are on par with Colecovision so it's kind of a joke compared to the Famicom/NES despite having some fun games.

Re: 2019/6/7: Genesis: Last Battle, Paperboy II

One would have been tempted to buy Last Battle in 1989 just because of how good the graphics looked on the back of the box. You usually only saw sprites that big and detailed in the arcade.

I've never played, but watching a Youtube video it does look like Black Belt with upgraded graphics.

Re: Has anyone actually ever repaired a game disc without resurfacing?

I once fixed a Crash Bandicoot disc by smearing toothpaste on it. That was the only time that the toothpaste trick worked for me.

Re: Games you where shocked the critic gave high grade despite it reception and/or controversy surrounding it?

What other people think about a game should have nothing to do with your own score. Hivemind sucks. What does Hivemind mean? You know, like a beehive or ant colony where the group takes precedence over the individual. It's another term for groupthink where your stance is influenced by whatever is t...
