Amagon was impossible...i watched someone beat it on youtube...hell i had to see that. i used to rent it back in the days, and i too actually had it in my collection for awhile. it woulda been a good game if it wasnt for its difficulty. and as far as Kickmaster that game is badass. i was trying to tell yall about it awhile back. yeah that game uses nothing but kicks. i like to say since Shatterhand was all punching someone was bound to make an all kicking game.

I was at my local Play N Trade and they had a gold Majora's Mask catridge with a label that looked holographic. Is that rare? I can't remember the price so what's the most I should pay for it?

I have that one. I've heard that surprisingly, the normal sticker label is the rarer version.

You either missed it, or all the ~$40 ones are broken.

Those are the ones I'm looking at. Did you even read the descriptions? 2 of them are broken, one says SYSTEM ONLY, which means you'd have to pay $40+ For cords, and one says nothing at all, which is ALWAYS a bad sign. In fact, out of all of those, I'd buy the $60 one.

For the N64 some really good 1 player games are: Blast Corps, Banjo Kazooie and Tooie, Donkey Kong 64, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, ShadowGate 64: Trials of the Four Towers, Quest 64, Resident Evil 2, Earthworm Jim 3D.

Awesome thanks for all the suggestions everyone!
@Tasuki my favorite genre of video games is platformers, but some racing, shooting, or fighting games are welcomed too.

I question a lot of these. Namely Blast Corps, Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, Quest 64 (especially Quest 64!!!), and Earthworm Jim 3D. My experience with Blast Corps was less than satisfactory, namely that I could not for the life of me figure out what to do. Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, while better than its predecessor, was still brought down by numerous problems, IMO. I haven't heard a single remotely positive word about Quest 64 from anyone who has played it, and I would not be surprised if the Angry Video Game Nerd does a video on it some day, judging from everything I've heard about it. Judging from the videos I've watched, Earthworm Jim 3D isn't that good either. I'd honestly like to hear why you feel they're worth recommending.

Tell me about it! One of these days I'm going to beat it I swear, I nabbed myself a copy off eBay 2 years ago, and I haven't actually played the game since i was around 6 or 7. I need to score a 27" Sony Tube CRT for my Nes gaming, I hate hooking the thing up to my main 32" Wega display. Nes games just don't seem right on that large of a display. :p

Anyways, I'm definitly going to get Kickmaster...I love finding these obscure underrated gems and experiencing them in this day and age for the first time, or knowing about them for all of this time and never experiencing them. It's always awesome discovering a cult classic and having a blast with it. Kickle Cubicle was another one of my favorites. Snake Rattle n Roll was also quite the trip as well!

And did anybody ever play Attack of the Killer Tomatoes?lol Based on the semi popular cartoon of course. And I'm pretty sure this one slipped under the radar big time. I rented it as a kid and aside from the first midnight purple-ish stage sticking out, all i can remember was the unfair difficulty, those damn little mini tomatoes would get me every time!

Thanks for all the recommendations Tasuki!
Well now for SNES multiplayer I'm getting Zombies ate my Neighbors and Super Double Dragon. I'll get Banjoo Tooie, Perfect Dark, and maybe DK 64 for N64. If it's not too hard I'll try to get GoldenEye. Thanks again everyone for the help.

Yeah I am still looking for GoldenEye myself. I saw it a few months ago at a Retro Store and it was only $5, and wouldnt you know that was the day I forgot my wallet at home. I ran home and got it and went back but by that time it was gone. :(

I'm just trying to find out if anyone remembers the title of a CPU learning game from the 1990's. It was a top-down, spelling puzzle and adventure. Your character was some type of amazon indian, in a jungle setting. You had to move your character using the keyboard arrows and try to avoid, or find your way around obstacles. Like lions, crocodiles, oil slicks, boulders that had to be moved in a certain manner and many others. All the while you also had to collect letters in a certain order. To spell the word that was given to you at the beginning of each puzzle, from some kind of indian chief or medicine man. I think his name was Yobi or something like that. You could also pick up and use items like apples, to feed the lions so that you could sneak past while they ate them. Or to feed a hippo so that you could ride on his back across the river, to an non-accessible area. After completion of each word, you would hop on a floating log raft that carried you upstream to the next puzzle. Throughout the game you randomly come to some village on the river. You are then asked to use the keyboard to spell out a series of words correctly. Before you can move further up river and on to the next puzzle. You would also be awarded with a special token, that had some type of worth at the end of the game. The goal was to make it all the way up the river to some kind of temple or something. There were so many puzzles that I never actually completed the game, but I got pretty far up river. I can't remember the title of the game, it might have contained the indian chiefs name in it. Which I thought was Yobi or something like that. If you know which title I'm rambling about, then please reply. I still want to find and beat this game, for me it was very addictive. Thank You
