Postby Arilin Nydelahar » Wed Dec 04, 2002 4:53 pm

So yeah, lately i've been on a console game kick. Wondering if anyone's played any that stand out? Latest two I've played are Metriod Fusion/Metriod Prime(Beat Fusion, working on prime now) Curious as to other people's take on the games if they're into them. I was hooked on Metriod back on my old nes, so yeah. new topic. Loved Fusion, Prime just owns, the graphics, and story so far are pretty damn good. Any takers?

Best Atari 2600 - Adventure
Best C64 - Impossible Mission (Who Dares Wins is a close second)
Best NES Game - NHL Hockey (forget the exact title - where you could drop the gloves and fight it out with another player)
Best PC Game - XCom-UFO Defense

*Edit* I wanted to add a link to a Flash version of Adventure for those that never played it. http://www.scottpehnke.com/programming/flash.htm

You only have a Gamecube?

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is pretty cool for PS2. Lots of other good PS2 games out too... Devil May Cry comes to mind, though I can't think of any others atm... heh.

I got a PSX, Xbox and a gamecube, my friend has the ps2, we trade off systems alot so it works out. After I blasted FFX on the ps2 it was just hohum for the hours I put into it with such a shitty ending. But yeah. GTA is one of the coolest games :P

Atari 2600 - Pitfall was pretty dope. I think I just liked standing on the alligator's head.

Anyone remember Kaboom? That was pretty lame but it was just a random thought.

I liked Combat too. The one where you could guide your missiles with the joysticks around corners and such.

Metroid Prime was one of the best games I've played in years. One of the few games I've ever played where I wanted to pick the controller up as soon as the ending finished and start playing again immediately.

Kingdom Hearts rocked, I don't care what anyone says.

Devil May Cry is good so far, have only gotten thru maybe 7 missions so far though.

GTA Vice City is very very cool, though it makes me mad that it's harder to pick up prostitutes.

I love playing Spyro the Dragon. It frustrates the hell out of me but it's so cute. Image

I'm a *huge* fan of anything Mario Bros. I think it almost borders on obsession. I grew up playing it, and the love for it just never left.

I like playing Gran Turismo as long as I don't have to play with Kallinar, because he always beats me, and he used to let me win :P

That's all I can think of atm. Image

I have an XBOX, its one of the greatest platforms out there,

wait!

before you jump on hating microsoft, I hated them too, and I was all about getting a ps2 instead of an xbox.

Then I played HALO-

This game kicks serious ass, forget anything you know about FPS games or Microsoft, the game was made by BUNGIE, who really, really know their stuff.

Conversly, I went into gamestop with 100 bucks ready to drop 50 on XBOX live and 50 on Halo:Online but apparently HALO online will never exist, until HALO2 comes out next winter.

Oh well, thats 100 bucks they wont have of mine :P

I also have no clue why MS didnt buy the rights to resident evil, it would have owned on the xbox... same deal with GTA.

They have the money, they just need to get some of the more powerful franchises.

Awesome Topic. it brings back memories.
I love those old games, trying to rebuild a library of what I used to have.

SMS = Penguin Land, or Fantasy Zone.
Nes = Solomons Key, Mega Man 2 (the music)
Genesis = Earth Worm Jim, Star Quest.
Snes = F-zero, Final Fantasy 2.
Psx 1 = X com, or Gran Turismo 2.
(theres alot of favorites.)
N64 = Goldeneye!, Rush 2.
Psx2 = GTA3, Vice city, lots of others.

Wow, after thinking, there are so many titles I loved to play. I have been playin Vice City on a regular basis, and a bit of the other modern platforms, I like PSX2 cause of the controlloer setup, the other feel like they tried to re-invent something a fugged up. They all seem equal in comparison, so no need to buy Xbox, or Cube. I just go over to Zellin and play em! hehe.

I will PWN you at Goldeneye 4man, Nuk!

My brother and I would go at it for hours upon hours upon end, it was pretty 50/50 between us (probably cause the bastard learned all my secrets). Grenade Launchers > all. Unless you're a wank and use the Golden Gun or Moonraker Laser. :P

Devil May Cry is a kickass game, Eza. I've had it since it came out, and I still haven't beaten it. Mostly due to the fact I'm still trying to beat the first secret stage still..*roll*. I cannot figure out how to blow that damn wraith up in 1 shot. :P

However, I do have another saved game where I'm at about the 16th or 17th stage, not quite sure. I'll just tell you now, get orbs, learn yer skills. You're gonna need em. Once you get to the ship...well I'll leave that to you. Image

I am an avid fan of RPG's, but I also love a good strategy game too. Metal Gear Solid 2 is probably my favorite PS2 game so far, other than DMC. Once I get off my duff and beat FF8 and 9, I'll get my hands on X and see how good it is. Sadly I'm not as big of a video game junkie as I used to be, but I still get addicted occasionally.

Arilin...how's the selection for GameCube now? I'm assuming that's the new Metroid for it. Image I've beaten all the other ones.
I'm wanting to take a crack at the new Zelda too...

I didn't like DMC. Good game, good interface, good plot. However, the fact that there is NO continuing after you run out of lives, coupled with the fact that you could only save at the start of a level, meant that I would often reset the game every time I died. I didn't want to get to the last stage with no lives left, nor did I want to have to spend all my money on buying extra lives. I got to stage 13 or so and got frustrated, never finished it.

Select is pretty sparce, but there's three games that make it worth the cost to me so far. Metriod Prime(About five hours into it, pretty sweet shit)

The new zelda of course, and the new Final Fantasy game for it(Yeah, square's making one exclusively for the GC) so we'll see how it turns out.

Lesee...Lately I have been playin the hell out of the following on PS2:

GTA 3
GTA Vice City
Hot Shots Golf 3 ( I really love this game)
Gran Turismo 3 (Cause it never gets old for me)


I wanna get the newest Matt Hoffman BMX game and possibly the new Tony Hawk cause they have the same game engine and I pwn on both of those games.
Red Faction2 looks awesome too so that may be slated for a buy later on.

HALO is ok, but honestly I HATE that huge bulky X-Box controller. As a matter of fact, only X-Box games of late that has piqued ANY interest from me is MechAssault and Steel Batallion cause I am an oldskool Mechwarrior/Battletech player and I love the idea of playing around in giant robots and blowin junk up. I hear the new Mechwarrior is done "shooter style" and I sorta don't like that aspect, but as big a fan as I am, I won't let that bother me too much.

I tried to buy a copy of Monster Rancher 2 from this place I take my games and trade em in for credit (Funcoland for those in the know) and I picked up an empty case for MR2 from the display shelf, and found out they only had MR1 behind the counter. I was so mad. I haven't been to find Monster Rancher 2 or 3 anywhere!!!

Thinking of asteroids or defender by chance? Think those might have been atari games, havent played it since the '80's Image

Gerad,

Yes i am a huge halo fan. Gamespy? never heard of it. Me and a few friends usually link up 2-3 xboxes and put them in different rooms and have at it...its mucho fun. If you come down in january i must smite you.


Am I the only one that has owned an aquarius game system, or a commador 64? Used to play that snake game a lot on aquarius. Commador owned back in the day...it was >>> atari. Favorite games on there were pitfall series and aztec challenge.

Never heard of aquarius before, when was it made? after atari 2600?
And like duh C64 was >>>> atari 2600, but it came out at least a year later.
Oh and aztec challenge ruled!

Earliest game system that comes to mind for me is Atari 2600, what preceded it? Did intellivision or colecovision come before it?
Was vic20 out at or about the same time?
I think TI99-4A was around there too.

Pong on a PDP-11 maybe?

Not sure when aquarius came out, will have to check with my dad. It was his and he just let us play with it. It ruled, we had aquarius and atari back to back in our room, then the c64 was in the corner of the room. Having a dad that worked at zenith and jacked all their broken TV's and fixed them ruled.

My pong machine still works! And it has features! You can play slow pong or slower pong.

Cherz said "Karnov on the C64 ruled", I don't know about the C64 version but the arcade games ruled!

I'm a huge fan of the street fighter II games. Never liked mortal kombat, but I owned at sf2.

Kid Icarus for the NES was another favorite game of mine, as well as the original Zelda.

SNES - Super Mario World pwned. I still play that game for hours on end trying to remember how to beat all 96 levels.

N64 - 4x Bond is definitly the best. We have that on our big screen in my house and every once in a while a tournament will start. I live for those days =P.

I love just about ever final fantasy game, but currently I'm beating up on the final fantasy anthology game... think it's ff5 that I'm playing now. I just love how you can class your characters and get skills for them =P

My fav ps2 game is madden2003. Incredible graphics and I just love the madden style of football.

I like the Street Fighter II game. Before they added all the characters and Marvel Comics guys. I just liked the original 8 fighters. How did anyone ever win using Zangief. I was partial to Dhalsim and Ryu/Ken. I was also proficient with Chun-Li and Guile.

Now everytime you hear "CCCCCCombo Breaker!" you want to murder somebody? I know the feeling.

Yeah, almost forgot tekken, they are bad ass games. I am almost unbeatable with lei. The only bad thing about that game was the introduction of that stupid breakdancer guy...I will bust the kneecaps of anybody using that chr...he is beyond cheesy.
