  1. Ha, it's the opposite for me. Had less games as a kid, but that meant I spent a lot more time on each one and combined with being so young they're just burned in to my mind so much more. Even though there's really only about 5-6 games on the N64 I really enjoyed, I value that 5-6 more than the 20+ I had fun with on the PS2 or GNC for example.

    Anyone Else Getting Dragon Quest 11?

    Is it going to? BTW, do you exclusively own Nintendo consoles? (now and generally speaking)
  3. Whats With the N64 near the bottom? Was it because of the lack of RPG's? @KezayYo, we still missing your rankigs
  4. Rank your Nintendo consoles from favorite to least - and vote for your favorite one in the poll. My Favorites (best to worst) 1. SNES (10/10) 2. N64 (10/10) 3. GBC (8/10) 4. DS (7/10) 5. Gamecube (6/10) 6. Switch (its too early - might be my favorite piece of Nintendo hardware, but it needs a lot more years of top end games.) 7. GBA (5/10) 8. Wii (3/10 did NOT like this console) Didnt have a Wiiu so I cant rate that - was too disappointed by the Wii to get one. For comparison, my favorite non-Nintendo consoles are: PS1 (7/10) PS2 (8/10) PS3(6/10) PS4 (6/10) PC (10/10 ...this isn't fair because I'm counting emulation in there)
  5. This is the most excited I've been for a jrpg since tales of symphonia on the gamecube. It's giving me the same kind of vibes. A game like ToS wouldn't rank high on my last nowadays because of the jrpg story cliches and terrible writing/voice acting aren't my cup of tea anymore, but I'm kind of pumped for the idea of playing 90s RPG with modern mechanics. DQ3 for the GBC is one of my favorite games ever, so I think this is going to be a blast. Anyone else getting this? I really only got excited because of the review scores and reviews themselves. It's been a long time since I've seen a traditional JRPG this well received. (besides Xc which I never played and dont think I'd enjoy)

    OOT vs MM vs BOTW - Your Favorite Poll

    Whats your top 5 period? And why do you prefer TP over MM? I remember back on nsider like a few decades ago you were all about that MM life.

    OOT vs MM vs BOTW - Your Favorite Poll

    This is your top 5 Zelda games or your top 5 games period? It seems pretty heavy on Zelda, so just making sure lol. ..And how did you have TP ahead of OOT and MM? That surprises me a lot more than having BOTW at top, which I can more readily understand. So it seems you're pretty immune to Nostalgia? I ask because my list is pretty much dominated by SNES and N64 games. I mean I have DKC, Goldeneye, Pokemon Yellow, Harvest Moon 64 all in my top 10. In fact the most recent game in my top 10 at #2 is MGS2, which is like nearly 20 years old. My top 10 is basically; Zelda: Ocarina of Time Metal Gear Solid 2 Super Mario RPG Secret of Evermore Donkey Kong Country Harvest Moon 64 Pokemon Yellow Goldeneye 007 Dragon Warrior 3 Kirby Superstar Almost all of those franchises, if not all, has had technically better games released since then, but none of them wowed me as the originals that I played. The games that are most memorable to me are the ones that most blew my mind at the times of their release, which of course is easier to do when you're a kid and when these games are blowing the doors open of video game technology. COD MW was great, but it sure as heck didn't wow me nearly as much as Goldenye 007, which was my first FPS, and consequently doesn't share the same affection I have for the latter. I suppose I rank games differently than most it seems. I always assumed childhood favorites would dominate most peoples lists, since you're at your most impressionable.

    Just out of curiosity, could you list off your 5 favorite games of all time? Curious to see how old those games are, or if they're generally more recent.

    OOT vs MM vs BOTW - Your Favorite Poll

    Let me preface this by saying that I'm guessing that a bunch of us here that have played OOT when it released are probably between 27-35. I freely admit that I got beer can thick nostalgia goggles on for that game, and I don't believe that there will ever be a game in my lifetime to surpass it. However I assume that nostalgia is a pretty common thing among those having played such a landmark game in our age group. I'm wondering if some of you are choosing BOTW over OOT based on a kind of logic-only, pros and con, direct comparison of the two. Clearly if both OOT and BOTW released in 1998, BOTW would be considered the better game. It's technically just better. However I personally rank games based not on a logical deduction of their pros and cons, but rather how much I personally enjoyed each game at the time that I played them. So for those of you that chose BOTW over OOT (or MM) I'm curious about the following; 20 years from now, when looking back at BOTW, do you believe you'll have as strong and fond memories of it as you do of OOT today?

    OOT vs MM vs BOTW - Your Favorite Poll

    Which sidequests in BOTW were memorable? I'm very surprised at your statement of it being better than MM in that regard and am wondering if I missed something. PS: Kezay I feel you watching, if you see this make your presence known in some way.

    OOT vs MM vs BOTW - Your Favorite Poll

    Well TP is darker, but it also feels so hollow. OOT/MM both have a sense of darkness, but there's something more to them as well. TP lacked identity and the darkness felt forced, not a natural culmination of the story, style and characters coming together to give you that sense naturally. Also pasting from previous page since it may get lost; I probably sank somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 hours in to BOTW, but to me it really falls significantly short of OOT and fairly short of MM for a few reasons: 1. Lack of music. To me this is a big part of Zelda. The amazing tracks of the dungeons, towns, etc are incredibly memorable and add to the atmosphere. I think for BOTW, it would have made sense to keep the current ambient soundtrack they have for the overworld, but have orchestral tracks for towns and some of the more isolated/specific locations. 2. Lack of dungeons. Having recently replayed MM, I would have killed to see something akin to stone tower in BOTW. But frankly virtually any dungeon (except jabu jabu belly) would have been an improvement over the divine beasts. Divine beasts would be much better if they were themed (forest/fire etc, or even something else as long as they have unique identities) had much better music, more puzzles (perhaps the equivalent of 10-15 shrines worth) and better bosses/sub bosses/enemy rooms. 3. Not as important as #1 and #2, but would have liked to see more to the story. It just lacked motivation. 4. Better side quests/characters. Having played through witcher 3 last year and MM this year the shallowness of the sidequests were a bit jarring. They would have been much, much better if they were attached to character narratives and involved more than collecting certain ingredients. There's a few other things that aren't necessarily a negative, but could have improved the experience; namely, bigger and more numerous towns, more enemy variety, better weapon degradation, limiting your dishes, as by mid game my character was far too OP thanks to dozens of full health dishes that I farmed ingredients for etc. The problem is that #1 and #2 for me are probably the 2 most important aspects of Zelda games. If BOTW 2 did something about the above points it would have a chance of besting OOT as the GOAT game for me. I love the new open world concept, its a visually really interesting world and mechanics are good. To me its the third best Zelda after the N64 ones for those reasons, but that third place is very distant from OOT for me. I'm hoping BOTW 2 really does improve on these things, especially on dungeons and music/story.

    It has a darker (and for MM, creepier) atmosphere that's missing in BOTW.
  14. TBH MK wouldnt be worth it to me, but if they had a game like Goldeneye for the switch I'd play it. I'm not big in to FPS multiplayer, but something about the relatively small, closed levels of Goldeneye make it super fun for me. Too bad they dont make FPS games like that nowadays that I know of.
  15. Who is "we"? Do you play games (semi)daily still nowadays or less frequently?
