Systems I've Neglected?

Postby VideoGameCritic » November 14th, 2019, 4:29 pm

I review a wide range of systems and you all know I have my favorites. However, I think there are certain systems I haven't posted reviews for in a while (years) that deserve more attention.

Please me know what systems you want to see new reviews (or re-reviews for). And it would make it all the easier if you suggest specific games as well!

Emerson Arcadia 2001. I can't even remember the last time I saw a new review for that console.

Well first off, I don't think there's any glaring weakness on the site - maybe the closest is the lack of Game Boy reviews, but you've been hearing that for years and you've done more lately. A few other portables have low review counts too, like the Neo Geo Pocket and Vita.

A few consoles worth looking at might be Channel F, SG-1000, Master System, and Nintendo 64. I mention these because they either haven't been addressed in years, or they have low review counts compared to the number of games on the systems. For reader interest, N64 is an easy place to start. (Edit: review Pokemon Snap.)

For me personally, I'd love to see the last few Game.com reviews completed. And more Philips CD-i games. You're one of the few people on the internet reviewing Philips CD-i games.. there are so many CD-i games out there that no one has ever reviewed, and a deeper dive into that strange world would be fun to read.

If you're ever looking for a new system, your most notable missing system is the Nokia N-Gage. (P.S. You know you're reviewing for a boatload of systems when the N-Gage is the most notable one you're missing.) While the N-Gage was a joke in the 2000s, it's actually a respectable handheld for retro gamers. I'm a fan of it and it has a surprisingly impressive game library.

Ti 99/4a please! So many great cartridges, and relatively cheap to collect for.

Game Boy Classic and Game Boy Color, though there are still many GBA games to review.

PSP and PS Vita have many left to review, and there's always the few remaining NGPC games.

The Channel F Is definitely overdue for some reviews, as it's been over three years and there are still 11 games in the original release library left to cover:

Videocart-03: Video Blackjack
Videocart-06: Math Quiz I (Addition & Subtraction)
Videocart-07: Math Quiz II (Multiplication & Division)
Videocart-08: Magic Numbers (Mind Reader & Nim)
Videocart-11: Backgammon, Acey-Deucey
Videocart-15: Memory Match
Videocart-16: Dodge' It
Videocart-18: Hangman
Videocart-19: Checkers
Videocart-22: Slot Machine
Videocart-25: Casino Poker

Dodge' It [sic] is supposed to be pretty fun IIRC.

The Odyssey² also hasn't seen any coverage in over two years, and has 11 original-era games left to cover:

Computer Intro
Conquest of the World
The Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt
I've Got Your Number
Keyboard Creations
Matchmaker/Buzzword/Logix
Math-a-Magic/Echo
Nimble Numbers Ned
S.I.D. the Spellbinder
Type & Tell
War of Nerves

OK, maybe you can skip the edutainment games, but the board games (Conquest of the World & The Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt) and War of Nerves would be great to see reviewed.

Otherwise, like Retro STrife, I'd like to see you finish off systems near completion, like Game.com (3 games left), Atari 5200 (5 left), Atari 7800 (5 left), and especially Sega 32X: all you have to do is review Supreme Warrior for that last one!

And yes, more CD-i reviews, please, and 3DO as well. That era of gaming is a treasure trove for engaging reviews.

And there is always pirate/hack games (such as Sonic the Hedgehog 4 for SNES)...

Nah, just stick to published games...

BTW, looking forward to the Arcade Classics 3 - Galaga/Galaxian and Game Boy/Color Mega Man game reviews...
