How about Yoshi's Story despite people saying the game is extremely easy?

I didn't like it one bit, just too easy like you said. I'm sure there're those who liked it though.

I can certainly recommend ActRaiser - one of the funnest and most unique games I've played in a long while.

am trying to decide between Blaster Master and Gunstar Heroes. I never played them before on their original platforms, but the reviews make them both seem like must haves- so what do you recommend and why? (I'm leaning toward Blaster Master as of this moment, but that can change).

Get Blaster Master if you like platformers with a bit of exploration thrown into the mix.

Get Gunstar Heroes if you're a fan of the run'n'gun genre, Treasure games, or both.

Get Gunstar Heroes while it's still on sale.

I have 600 points, and am looking at either a good RPG or platformer. I already have Blaster Master, Lolo 1, Mega Man, Mega Man 2, StarTropics, Neutopia, and some others. Thinking either Shining Force or Sonic 2 while they're on sale.

Yo, I need a little help making a decision - I got 500 points left, which one of these games would probably be the better buy?:

  • Ninja Gaiden 2 - I enjoyed the original, but I've yet to finish it. Should I get it anyways? It may be a while before I get around to it, though
  • Castlevania 2 - for completion purposes, and the very slight chance that it might actually be good
  • Super Mario Bros. 2 - It's the only main Mario game besides Lost Levels that I don't currently own. Please note that I have tried 3 different versions of it, and never got past level 1 :(
  • Fantasy Zone 2 - I don't even own the original, though
  • Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics 2 - I want it, but I want to finish the original StarTropics first
  • Mega Man 2 - I already have it on the collection, but I figure I might want to get it on vc anyways just because I love it so much
  • Phantasy Star - even though I'll probably get it on a collection someday, I might want to get it, just because it's really the only PS game that interests me
  • R-Type - For the helluvit, because I love R-Type so dang much
  • Sonic Chaos - Already have it, but I might want to get it again with a bigger screen
  • Mach Rider - looks pretty cool from the videos
  • Zanac - Looks pretty cool from the videos, but I fear it may end up becoming too frustrating
  • Secret Command - I know absolutely nothing about this game. But the boxart is pretty cool
  • Adventures of Lolo - Looks pretty neat, but I'm not sure how long a puzzle game could hold my attention
  • Life Force - I've played it before, and it is very very very very very very very hard. But I really liked it anyways, and I love the series. Might end up being too frustrating, though.
  • Ghosts 'n' Goblins - It looks like an absolute blast from the videos, but I'm not so sure I'll have enough patience for it.
  • Solomon's Key - Looks pretty interesting, and I might just get it to tide me over until we get Fire 'n' Ice, but again, I'm not so sure a puzzle game could hold my attention for every long

Or should I just get Mega Man 9 DLC?

@Mickeymac: I'd recommend Life Force. It's a hard game, but if you find it too frustrating you could just use the thirty live Konami Code. It also has a co-op mode where a friend can try to help you out.

I would recommend SMB2 (US) instead but if you can't even beat the first level, it's rather difficult to recommend.

@mickeymac: Super Mario Bros. 2 is great, but Mega Man 2 would be my choice. You haven't played it until you've played it with the Wii Remote sideways.

@Mickeymac: From what I read on the Phantasy Star series, IV is the best one but that one is 800 points. For the 500 you listed, I would go for either Ninja Gaiden 2 or Zoda's Revenge. You have the originals for both so you might as well have the sequel of either to be there for you when you finish the original of either.

@Mickeymac- If you like Zelda-style puzzle solving, get Adventures of Lolo. You won't regret it.

Yeah, the thing is, I don't really play Zelda for the puzzles. They're okay, but I generally prefer just killing enemies. Lolo does look pretty cool, but I don't think it'll be able to hold my attention for very long.

Heh, I've been playing Mega Man with a Gamecube controller for so long, I tend to forget it came out on anything else.:P

Still looking for a few more suggestions before I take the plunge. I'll tally up the votes before I go to bed.

Of those, I would say Zanac because it's similar to The Guardian Legend, one of the (if not the) best games on the NES.
And you can never go wrong with Compile.
