What trolls? If there are any trolls, they are nothing compared to Orlick and Captain Jack Sparrow during NL's early years. :P

this. i'm not seeing a whole lot of honest-to-god trolling lately, not on the level we used to get lol — excited people posting duplicate topics, yes; young kids signing up without any knowledge of netiquette, sure; but trolling? not so much, and to be honest the trolls usually come straight to chat and wind up zapped from there, lol. when they show up in chat, they usually reveal themselves much faster, but when they show up on the forums we kinda have to give 'em enough rope to hang themselves well and properly, if you catch my drift. can't go banning someone over language barriers and accidental misunderstandings, after all.

anyway, come on, guys, don't bother paying the few genuine trolls that show up here any mind. let's all get back to our normal posting routines, shall we? :3

@Tj92: usually when people are missing an exit and can't find it no matter what, it's that tricky one in the Forest of Illusion. There's an exit from the Ghost House to the level next to it, and then there's an exit from that level going to the Ghost House, so if you only got one of the two exits it still looks like you got both because the paths overlap.

Link to the Past/ Link's Awakening >>>>>>>>> rest of Zelda

excellent example, sir. some of the latter games have been good times IMO (OoT and MM for sure), but TP was just not that great, and nothing beats ALttP to be honest.

another example of how newer releases in a series with updated gameplay aren't always better would be Super Paper Mario. The flip-mode thing was interesting for about five minutes, and then it got old and the rest of the game bored me to absolute tears. It had its good points, but in no way was it a contender for Paper Mario's place in my heart, haha.

what's up with the dramatics, lol... why put up the topic in a public space if you don't want to see people agreeing and disagreeing with your opinion?

the bottom line is that you cannot prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the games you've rattled off are indeed 'better' than their predecessors because 'better' is, for the most part, entirely subjective. fixing totally broken controls would be one thing, but moving from 8 directions to free roaming? people will have to make judgment calls regarding which they prefer is all, as both styles have their pros and cons. there's also much more to both games than directional controls to be considered when deciding for one's self which you feel is a better game than the other. :/

i am just posting what is objectivly better

but these are your opinions...? by their very nature they are not objective statements.

also, 'newer' doesn't always equal 'better' — there are always flaws to be considered along with updates to an established series' gameplay. whether you find the newer version better than the old release or not is all subjective :3

the only reason i would even remotely agree with you regarding SMG being better than SM64 would be if (a) we were discussing the games in terms of their soundtracks, or (b) we were talking SM64DS as opposed to the original version. SMG's a great game, but it's no SM64.

MK64 is the best MK game IMO, followed closely by MKDS and then the original SMK.

NSMBW is nowhere near the 2nd-best 2D Mario game. even SMB2(US) is better IMO.

Kirby Super Star (and KSSU for DS) beg to differ regarding 'best kirby game ever'.

as for Metroid, Punch-Out!!, and NBA Jam, i haven't played the new versions (and i don't really plan on doing so) so idk. i do intend to pick up DKCR eventually, i just haven't gotten around to it yet, so i'm holding off on judgment at this time (though i think DKC2 will be very hard to beat, haha).

@AlexSays: i've already said 'my bad' and explained that i read 'bad' in that context as 'cool', which apparently no one else did. I've also said i won't make the same mistake again. what more do you want from me?

and yes, explicit profanities are deleted on sight. when i asked for clarification back when i was first made a moderator, I was given an entire laundry list of offensive words to edit out of posts on the forums, up to and including a few that are apparently horrible in the UK but totally passable here in the US. this isn't something new, it's been enforced since October of '09 at the very least (back when V and I were first shielded) — granted, we're only human and some do slip past us, but we do our best for lack of a proper word filter.

if you've still got a problem (or if your definition of 'explicit' doesn't match that of the head honchos'), you're more than welcome to take it up with them personally.

Oh come on, that is censored here? And you change it to something completely different so that the person I quoted reads it entirely different?

don't like it? don't use profanity, wind up reported by another user, and then make me come in and have to edit it out. i thought it made sense (because in context that 'bad' read as 'cool' to me, idk maybe my slang is off), but apparently it didn't, so my bad on that. next time i'll just delete the entire word and screw up your sentence like i normally do in this type of situation.
