@Monkeido Gex is great, right! I always tell people it's not a good game exactly, but it is an interesting one.

I always recommend Super Metroid if you've never played a Metroid game before. Don't read anything in advance, just prepare yourself to get completely lost in a vast subterranean world.

@Monkeido Not a fan of the Metroid games either. Have played the Original, 2, Super and one of the Primes cant remember which, and just didnt have fun with them at all. Really really tried to enjoy them especially Super since its so highly regarded but just wasnt a fan. I too do enjoy several "Metroidvania" games though

Thinking about Sonic games, I have fond memories of the GBA port of Sonic 1. Yeah, it has its share of problems, but otherwise it was rather cool to be able to play classic Sonic on the go years before the DS collection came out.

@Monkeido You're not the only one. Outside Metroid Fusion, I really didn't care much for the Metroid games I've tried, Prime included. Just wasn't my cup of tea I'd guess.

@Arkay I'm still waiting for the Metroid Trilogy to be released on Switch. Will definitely try them once/if that happens.

@BougieBeetle Haha, that's one way to put it!
Super Metroid is definitely the one I want to give another chance, I think I only played it for a little bit on the 3DS and never owned it as a kid. I have a SNES Mini, so I think I'll play some of it soon.

@redd214 Nice to see I'm not the only one, definitely seems like our experiences and opinion on Metroid are very similar. ^^

@Sunsy Only normal that we can't like/love every game, even ones that are highly regarded. On a side note, I'll most likely (99% sure) still buy Metroid Prime 4 on release day though. ^^'

Mario Odyssey is the weakest 3D Mario platformer. (also, the ending sucks)

I think a digital only future isn't anywhere near as bad as people think.

On that topic, I think a digital-only future isn't anywhere as CLOSE as people think, at least 2 generations away. Music isn't even digital only yet (you can still buy music CD's from Amazon), and that started in the late 1990's. Do people really thing digital gaming, which started after digital movies and music, is going to become the only option before them?

@iKhan PC games are already digital only. To be fair, PC games have been around WAY longer then console games (at least in terms of years on the market).

@Snaplocket If it's digital as in digital download you have the games saved to your own hard drive/SD card, then I actually agree. I prefer physical but I'll take digital download over streaming any day! If streaming actually does take off it's over, we no longer own anything, we are just paying for permission to play it, temporarily. It's just renting.

@Heavyarms55 That would be the best solution in my eyes and technically that's already the case with sd cards.

There are too many good games to justify replaying games most of the time. I basically use making Let's Plays as an excuse to do so nowadays, because otherwise there are too many games I could be playing instead of...I dunno, trying and failing to love Mario Sunshine again. Or when I realized too many playthroughs of Sonic 2 was making me bored of that game, that was a real sign I shouldn't play it again for a long time.

Personally, I don't like game reviews, and really don't find them useful for me. I like to actually play a game and form my opinion on that experience, rather than look at what's popular to say. Funny thing is, it leads me to having unpopular opinions, while this may be an unpopular opinion too.

@Snaplocket I'd like to see both digital and physical exist. I won't say no to a digital only game that interests me, for series I like a lot, I buy those games physically.

@Nagi I am really curious why you rank the New 3DS XL below the original 3DS XL or the 2DS XL. I would assume if one didn't like the XL model, they wouldn't like any of them.

Sorry for answering so late.
Mabye i got really unlucky, but both New 3DS XL Systems i used back than felt very cheaply put together. The Top Screen felt very wobbly and the paintwork on both Systems started to peel off after only a couple of months. This never happended with any other Handheld System i own. There are some other nitpicks i have, but these two are my main complains.
By the way, my first New 3DS XL was a Metallic Blue Edition, my 2nd was the Majora's Mask Edition and both were brand new.

I disliked how the battery cover on the N3DS XL covered the entire bottom of the system. It did make it feel less “together“ or as sturdy as prior systems. Although it worked just fine regardless.

2DS XL looks like it borrowed some design elements from the Switch, which is a nice solid ”block“. I wouldn't mind having one at some point, since I rarely use 3D now anyway (and later games don't even support it).

@Anti-Matter I know a lot of casual gamers who don't know Konami for anything other than DDR.

@RedderRugfish
DDR for me it's not a casual game.
Now, DDR A20 Arcade has been released and there are some Level 18 & 19 songs that definitely not for Casual, but for Hardcore / Expert players Only.
And i could pass some Level 18 songs and one Level 19 song (Valkyrie Dimension on Challenge) if i lucky enough.

I think Nintendolife's review of FF VIII was 100% fair and people are just butthurt it didn't get as high a score as they hoped.

The Gamecube controller is insanely overrated.

Pros:

  • It lays pretty comfortable in your hands.
  • Good left stick.

Cons:

  • The button layout makes no sense.
  • The C-stick is terrible.
  • The d-pad is way too small.
  • The shoulder buttons feel cheap and have too much travel.
  • Just feels light and cheap overall.

I will never understand why so many people love this controller so much, and still would want Gamecube controllers for Switch when there’s so much better controllers out there.
It’s not the worst controller ever made (that would be the N64 one), but it’s not that great either.

It’s popular because of Smash Melee. That and it’s vastly superior to the awful N64 controller. And we got the Wii remote after it...so...

  • Goldeneye is a great game, has aged badly, and it just needs to be on a new console with crisper graphics and a brand new controller setup. Also rights ownership is not a big deal. Companies always make deals. Implementing online multiplayer shouldn’t be too difficult.

The only games worth playing besides Goldeneye from the 90s are umk3, and NBA Jam. Needs multiplayer.

PS2 is a good console, however it’s highly overrated.

Gamers shouldn’t play multiple consoles, just one console at a time.

Casual gamers aren’t as cool as hardcore gamers.

RPGs are a bad concept for gaming. Random encounters, tiring battles, no good dialogue etc.

Survival horror genre is the best genre out there.
