@Mickeymac: Either you haven't beaten most of the games you've played, or you've had AMAZING luck playing only awesome stuff. Or you're exaggerating. I bet it's that last one.

If you get right down to it, all Kirby games are really more or less the same. They have little tweaks here and there, and some have somewhat better level design than others, but overall, there's very little difference. That said, my two favorites are most people's two LEAST favorites. No idea why. Recent stuff (especially Squeak Squad) is just garbage, IMO. Maybe I've just played too many Kirby games over the years, I dunno. I DO know that Kirby 64 is great, though. ;)

Actually, it's a little of the first two, but still, Kirby 64 is a terrible game. Kirby moves slowly, the levels are boring and rarely have anything going on, the mid-level bosses are an absolute joke, although the end-world bosses are pretty fun(except for the World 3 and World 4 bosses! I hated those guys!). Most of the powers are completely useless, yet you need specific combinations in order to get all the stupid shards, so you basicly have to one-life a level until you get to the shard(and G-d forbid you picked the wrong combination and have to do it all over again!), which isn't that hard, except for pretty much all the levels on Neo-World(G-ddamn that level to HELL!), where the cheap enemy placements pretty much guarentee that you'll have the most frustrating time of your life trying to get to that one specific spot with the most useless powers in the game!

Honestly, asside from the last 2 or 3 bosses, I honestly didn't have much fun playing that game. If it wasn't the last game from my childhood I had left to beat, I never would've bothered to beat it in the first place. I usually save that type of thing for good games.

Then again, and I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I hate the Kirby series in general. Asside from Kirby's Adventure and most of the spin-offs, I've honestly never enjoyed any of them. Squeak Squad came kinda close - the bosses were fairly challenging, and quite fun to fight, but the stages were simply terrible.

I liked Squeak Squad more than Superstar Ultra, as far as traditional levels went the length was pretty similar. Super Ultra just had some crappy extra modes to play as well. Also I found SS more fun to play too.

A lot of psx games are still great and don't seem outdated. Bushido blade and wipeout xl for instance.

I love the kirby games. Kirby is a great character. They're mostly pretty easy but charming and fun. That would describe the n64 pretty perfectly. Its a great continuation of basic classic style kirby like kirby adventure or dream land 3. I guess some people were disappointed that there wasn't more to it.

@Mickeymac: If you hate Kirby in general, there's certainly no reason you'd like Kirby 64, then. I've just been replaying it on VC (largely because of this conversation), and I still think it's great.

You see, I hated most Kirby's except for Kirby 64 and Kirby's Adventure, which seemed like beautiful islands in an ocean of crap. But unfortunately, my love for Kirby 64 was all nostalgia - it turned out to be as crappy as the rest of them.:P

Oh well, at least Kirby's Adventure and the spin-offs are still good.:)

I'm a Kirby fan, except for Canvas Curse. Though not supposedly that huge of a Kirby fan, I just like those games so much. :) <3

Remember when I said I wasn't betrayed by nostalgia, and gave several examples?

Yeah. That's changed.

I recently downloaded the Game Boy version of Toy Story 2. It's terrible. D:

@BlueProtoman - You think that's terrible? Try the Game Boy Pocket port of Toy Story 1 (from SNES, MegaDrive, and PC), with its choppy framerate and slow resolution. That's terrible!!! :P
