Great games stand the test of time.

Male, 23, United States

I love the classics (Zelda, Metroid, Pokemon), games that break the mold (Kid Icarus, Animal Crossing, Fez, Smash Bros) and games with a powerful and captivating story (Metal Gear, Dead Space, Fallout 3). I don't think there is one Best Game, but games that resonate with us for different reasons.

Why is everyone complaining? This can only work to the game's benefit. If they spent time developing a half-baked story mode that wouldn't be that great anyway, then it would take away time from developing the REAL core of the game: the game mechanics and characters. I for one am still very excited for this game and it's potential to be the perfect Smash Bros game.

Damn that was a great article. Very well said. A lot of people don't seem to get this about gaming. It's about your own tastes and how much fun you have with a particular game! So many are focused on "which is better", that they lose sight of why we play games. To have fun.

That really is a shame. ZombiU was a GREAT original game that used Wii U's unique second-screen perfectly. It was a great horror experience that fully utilzed Wii U's capabilities. What that game NEEDS though is a sequel... there were some problems with the first that could be fixed in a second version that would make it a stellar horror game. It could be what Assassin's Creed II was to the first one. AC1 layed down the framework with great ideas, and AC2 perfected them.



VortexxPrime commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I am actually trying to beat the original Legend of Zelda for NES on my 3DS! I got it from the Ambassador program last year but I never really got very far. I gotta see where my favorite franchise began! I might also be playing Donkey Kong '94 for GB and Pikmin 2, two games that I have never played before.



VortexxPrime commented on Poll: How Important is Dual / Second Screen Ga...:

Dual-screen gaming is now a part of Nintendo's identity. Moving away from that concept would really require something revolutionary for the next generation. Nintendo is all about experiencing games in new ways. I really don't think they would settle for single-screen gaming anymore. I wasn't quite sold on the 3D of the 3DS until I played it, but now I can say it is my favorite gaming system and I use it more than anything else. The 3D is incredible and I wouldn't want to go back.



VortexxPrime commented on First Impressions: Yoshi's New Island:

I'm just now playing through the SNES version on my 3DS, and I'm having a tough time enjoying myself. I know many people love the game, but I just can't seem to have fun with the gameplay. The art style is nice, but I get bored with it too easily. I may finish it eventually. I won't be buying the 3DS game, however. Too much of the same.



VortexxPrime commented on Not All Super Smash Bros. Characters Will Make...:

Seems like Sakurai is doing the best he can to make the very best versions of the games as possible. I have no problem with them cutting the roster, especially with the promise of new characters. It'll be sad to lose a few favorites, but think of the all new ones you will have. I'm all for whatever he decides!
