@NeonPizza You do realize that it was just called TMNT in the arcades. TMNT II in arcades is technically Turtles in Time.

2D - Castlevania: Rondo of Blood
3D - Silent Hill. Or Final Fantasy 7. Or Metal Gear Solid. Or Monster Rancher 2. To be honest, picking my favorite PS1 game is almost an impossibility, since the system's library was so full of instantly classic experiences.

Most Anticipated Games
Shin Megami Tensei V (Switch)
Breath of the Wild 2 (Switch)
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles (Switch)
Advance Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp (Switch)

@MarioLover92 It's a great way to play the classics. I also played Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 before Sega went third party, Sonic 2 on my brother's Genesis, and Sonic 1 via Sega Smash Pack on Dreamcast. Also Sonic 3D Blast, I remember I had the opportunity to play it before it released as my family had Sega Channel for the Genesis when I was a kid. Crazy to think that was downloading games online long before it was the norm.

@Sunsy Oh that's cool, you guys were quite lucky to have Sega Channel back then! I never got to use it, because I was insanely young back then and we never had a Genesis back in that time. We just had the SNES. I was only 2 when Sega Channel came out. I do have a couple games that came out on SC though (Pulseman on the Wii VC, and Mega Man: The Wily Wars on the Genesis Mini).

I should also mention Sonic CD, as that is my favorite classic Sonic game.

@MarioLover92 Yeah, IIRC they had a solitaire game that was exclusive too. I remember checking it out and the cards all had Sega Channel logos. It's great knowing those got re-released and didn't get lost to time by being tied to an old online service.

@Sunsy Agreed. Too bad about Pulseman though, since that game went down along with the Wii Shop Channel. I'm happy to have gotten it (it's still downloaded on my Wii U's virtual Wii menu), since it's one of the lesser-known games on the Genesis/Mega Drive and a good one at that.

Mine is Lufia Rise of the Sinistrals. That game really got me into RPGs. I was like 9 years old back in those days and could hardly read Dutch, that SNES game got translated in Dutch and I understanded how to progress in the game, more or less. Now I´m twenty five years older and can do 5 languages broken. But I´ll go back hunting dragon eggs on my hakchi enhanced SNES mini now and than.

Bamm!

Damn, i forgot about Lufia.

And i also forgot about Terranigma, the only EU Exclusive worth talking about.

Whats your thought about Curse of the Sinistrals?

@Lightgazer I only got to play that afterward. It has outdated gameplay mechanics, like if you target a defeated enemy your turn gets lost instead of auto targeting another enemy. It´s playable and if you are interested in Lufia lore I could recommand it. It starts of where Lufia Rise of the Sinistral ends. I Suggest playing the prequel first so you can stomach that unpolished gem.

@Lightgazer My brain is just half broken . Okay, I´ve actualy imported that game. Nah don´t realy like it, it´s interesting if you got nostalgia. Seeing al those environments in 3d. I´ve played it once, now it´s stored for eternity. Seeing al those environments in 3d. Otherwise Ys is the better action RPG.

I haven't played these yet. I'm currently in Wonder Boy weeks. Played "Wonder Boy in Monster Land" and "Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap" so far, both Master System. Next on the list are "Wonder Boy in Monster World" (Mega Drive) and two games on the Switch: "Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom" and "Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World".
