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.

I never buy a video game if I think it'll be fun. People who do that are just plain silly.

i know, how dare i continue a long-running joke on the forums??? banning just isn't punishment enough for this offense. i'm going to go immolate myself for this immediately.
goodbye cruel world

before i go, though — me neither. who'd want to play something fun? D: D: D:

@grenworths: the pain actually isn't that bad — some people compare actually getting it done to cat scratches, and afterwards during the healing process it's more like a bad sunburn IMO. the needle won't be going very deep into your skin at all, and once the artist gets going, the endorphins will kick in. i'm the biggest wuss i know regarding needles and pain, so i'm pretty confident in saying that if i can sit for a tattoo, anyone can, haha.

i know it helps me to bring something to hold onto, like a book or something. that way if i want to clench my fists i've got something comfortable to grip, y'know? also, music definitely helps, but it doesn't make for good conversation with the artist if you've got headphones in — i talk quite a bit when i'm getting tattooed D: most artists will have a decent sound setup in the shop nowadays, and i haven't dealt with an artist yet who wasn't cool with the both of us agreeing on what to listen to (or changing the music when i got bored, lol).
