@gcunit @Buizel Let me know how it is when you get around to it. It's frequently on sale, and I'm under the destinct impression that's because it was utter crap, at least at release. I have no experiene with it, though, and with updates these days, the scathing reviews it recieved at launch might no longer apply.

So I am thinking of picking up a Mario Party game for my weekly multiplayer game night with the guys from work. So I was wondering which one is the best. I have all the console's that they all came on so that's not a problem.

General consensus is that 1 to 3 are the best, although personally I think 4 is up there too. My personal picks are 2 (which is the only one on the Virtual Console, at least in the UK) and 4 (I think you can pick this up fairly cheaply for Gamecube).

They really go downhill from 5 onwards. 5 to 8 are acceptable, I've not played 9, and 10? Waste of time =/

I've been thinking about a Dragon Quest game to play now that DQ8 is out. It would be my first in the series. From 4-9, which one would you recommend?

4 was my start, and I felt like it eased you into the gameplay style of Dragon Quest rather well. Honestly though, you couldn't go wrong with any of the ones you listed. Maaaybe DQ7, but only because its suuuch a slow burn, and always has been. DQ8 has the best pacing while still being a meaty game, IMO. I haven't played DQ6, so I guess I can't say anything there. DQ5 is far and away my personal favorite in terms of story. DQ9 is pretty swell stuff, too, and its the only entry to really spice up the combat system since DQ2.

I got the Mass Effect Trilogy today for my birthday, just in time for me to start a new game since I just finished the last one I was playing. I have three choices, all of which sound like huge undertakings, so I think I would like to start the one that will probably take the least amount of time. If I just plan on going through the story and not messing with too many sidequests unless they are interesting or on the way, which should I play first: Mass Effect, Oblivion, or Xenoblade Chronicles X? And if anyone has any opinions based on something other than time, throw those out, too.

@SeherBysner Have you heard of Google?

No, it hasn't released. It releases 3rd March.

Right now in my head, it's all horses, horses, horses, food, and horses.

@gcunit Honestly, I was starting to wonder if he was being facetious...

It's a launch game for the Switch, and, just so we're all on the same page: The Switch hasn't released yet, either. It comes out March 3rd, 2017. That is a world-wide release date. I checked.

@gcunit I'm sorry I was sort of confused because my friend told me it'll be released on the 6th.

I'm trying to remember the name of a game that was being talked about on this site a while ago, It was a downloadable arcade style racing game with pixel graphics and very vibrant colors. I don't remember which system it was coming out for, and I don't know if it ever got released.

I wasn't entirely sure which thread to put this question in, so I decided to dump this into the universal recommendations thread.

I have both Golden Sun (Wii U VC) and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn (DS cart). I'm trying to decide which one to start with first when I get around to playing them. Should I play the series in order? The reason I'm asking is because I'm aware that some consider Dark Dawn to be the weakest entry and have sometimes seen recommendations to play it first as it's supposedly a disappointment compared to the first two games.

Thanks in advance!

@Tyranexx Even if i did not play the Golden Sun series (i wish they will bring it to Switch through VC since i could not grab them on Wii U), i'm always for the "follow the order" choice. I would not like to have kind of spoilers about games i know i'm going to play. I prefer to read recalls, it's pleasant most of the times

@FGPackers: That's sort of what I was thinking, but wanted a second opinion. Thanks for the feedback.

Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, but its main quest just sucks, is very very bad and boring. All the other side quests were at least very fun and enjoyable, some of them were absolutely great, but if you just want to play the game for the main storyline and do nothing else than the main quest playing Oblivion is nothing else than a waste of your time. It's ugly that way, really. Mass Effect was extremely disappointing in my opinion but it was very short, it is not a game I would suggest but if you want a short game and you want to try it it seems the best choice in your situation

I really want to get into the SMT series, so I was wondering does anyone know which game I should play first? Preferably on DS or 3DS.
