    Here's an interesting one I got for you all..

    Traditional Style Resident Evil games (RE1, 2, etc.) are still better then RE4.

    As for the rest..
    I too also dislike GTA and all free-roaming gang war/crime fighting games.

    Wii is NOT currently the best system, and is far from winning the console war.

    Halo 1 was ten times better then Halo 2.

    LTTP was the best Zelda game.

    Sonic 3 and Knuckles was the best sonic game, not Sonic 2.

    SF3: 2nd Impact was better then 3rd Strike.

    - Megaman X8 is the best X game. Ignore Gigavolt Man-o-War's stage, though. The rest of the game is pure sex.

    i think capcom is going up the charts in quality despite what some people think as far as megaman games go
    the zero series was fucking great, ZX is a step in the right direction, ZXA is looking dope as fuck, the MM/MMX remakes on PSP were pretty damn rad, and i have no idea what is going on with the starforce series but i might give it a go eventually

    all i really ask for at this point is a legends 3

    I liked the SOCOM series. The first one was great online until the glitchers took over. For some reason, I found less retards in that game than I did on Halo 2. Funny how people are willing to pay $50 to make asses out of themselves.

    FFXI is the worst MMO ever. At least some of the Korean MMOs have some sense of style.

    nope. Xbox is easier while the PC is a pain in the ass.



    Mine -

    PS3 > 360

    I was on the "FUCK THIS $600 BULLSHIT AND FUCK SONY" and still am....kinda. The system really impressed me after seeing and playing Motor Storm for the first time. Playing VF5 for 3+ hours last week solidified it. The only game on 360 I've been impressed with(by interest and looks) is Blue Dragon. Maybe I should hold judgement when VF5 is released on 360 but so far I would say the $ spent on a PS3 is worth it while not so for the 360. Not to mention MGS4 and Z.O.E.3.

    I liked The Bouncer. A lot. *hides*

    Amen brother, stay strong. Lot of potential with The Bouncer. In-fact, I'd love to see some crazy upgraded version or just a whole new game on one of the current-gen consoles.

    Oh and to stop all the music-game genre. Gitaroo Man is the best rhythm game.

    EDIT: Oh and Ridge Racer 4 (R4) reamains my favorite racer. It also has the best soundtrack of any game, ever, made, ever.

    - Ocarina of Time wasn't as good as Wind Waker. Yeah, I said it. Wind Waker's only blemish was the Triforce hunt.

    THANK YOU! And here I thought I was the only one who felt this way. Honestly, what's the deal with OoT love? I think that game is terrible.

    Buwahahaha, I loved the days of El Salvador. Sol Badguy w/ Rock Punch assist? FUCK YEAH! :rofl:

    Anyways, to contribute here's my gripe:

    Pokemon DOES NOT = Little kid game. I get so sick of hearing this shit, especially from people who've never played seriously. Yeah sure, it's got a huge kid/tween following, and the series in very child friendly in tems of presentation and storyline, but God damnit, the series has more depth than a good deal of the shit people are currently playing/jacking off to at the moment and the game mechanics on a competitive level are definitely not child friendly. Making balanced teams, getting proper EV spreads, breeding for IV's, etc, is a hassle and a half and certainly requires a good deal of critical thinking, and on a more advanced level some skill with numbers.

    Final Fantasy 8 is my favorite in the series, even though I always tell people 6 when they ask. Also, I still believe Rinoa is Ultimecia.

    Super Smash Brothers Melee is harder to play than any 2d fighter with the possible exception of MvC2. Definitely much harder than 3rd strike, and as far as I can tell Guilty Gear. SSBM is by far more fun than these games as well.

    Opinions =D

    I used to play SSBM tournament scene, and then switched to 3rd. No it is not harder to play than 3rd, it is harder to execute properly though. 3rd is much harder though player wise.

    and as for unpopular opinion

    Super Punch Out- Not that fucking interesting. Fun, but wtf pointless.

    Metal Warriors- Awesomely fun game for SNES that fucking nobodies ever heard of

    Super mario world > SMB3

    SMB2 can suck ass from a straw, I don't like it.

    Earthbound and Crono Trigger Tie for best turn based RPG

    Breath of Fire Dragon Quarter suck terrible ass compared to the rest of the series

    Did you play the game in its prime, or 5 years after?

    Prime.
    WTF?! What's next u nominated Quest 64 and Superman 64 for VGAs.

    Re-read the title of this thread, and then apoligize to me for being a dumbfuck.

    Yes, I think "Castlevania 64" was awesome, almost everything one could possibly want in a 3D platformer.

    Other likely unpopular opinions;

    -NBA Jam Tournament Edition 94' is better than any entry in the NBA Street series, and the best 2 on 2 or 3 on 3 basketball game ever.

    -NBA Live 2001 for the PS2 is my favorite entry in the Live series. (And I've played all of them)

    -Fighters Destiny for the N64 was a better fighter than any of the Fatal Fury entries for the SNES and Genesis.

    Fire Emblem 7

    No way was 7 shitty. Hell, it's still one of the best emblems till this day. It sold like mad, people demanded and wrote letters pleading 6 to be shipped over here - but nothing happend.



    Golden Sun was disliked because people didn't like the idea of having to buy another unit(TLA) to continue with the story. But what I didn't get was that the story was kick ass, so why all the fuss?

    LOL, I apologize, ur right that game is very unpopular.

    If you've played it, help me out here; what didn't you like about it? I can understand why most unpopular games are judged that way, but that game was so good, I can't even point to any significant defects.

    Valkyrie Profile 2 was a lot more fun than FFXII. I like to actually play my games.

    Valkyrie Profile in general is really underrated, as far as I've seen.

    FF8 > 7, as far as gameplay goes. 9 is really underrated. FF music in general is EXTREMELY overrated.

    Chrono Trigger is pretty much the best thing to ever come out of Square.

    Kingdom Hearts is the worst, and although I too loved The Bouncer, I fucking HATE Tetsuya Nomura.

    OG Shining Force doesn't get nearly enough love despite being kinda easy.

    Megaman X4, X8, and X3 are the best in the X series. Also, the Zero games and ZX are all the shit.

    Wii is pretty boring in general.

    Best Sonic games: 2, 1, Rush, Advance 3, Adventure 1 (the only 3d one that, if anything, came closer to doing it right than any of the others). Sonic Wii is retarded as fuck; if anything it's a step BEHIND Sonic PS3/360 in many aspects.

    Zelda is one of the most overrated series in existence, and none of the games outside of LTTP deserve the insane amount of cockriding they get. In a similar vein, Okami is really overrated as well.

    I didn't get the hype for Gears of War, and I still don't. I also don't get the appeal of WOW.

    Shinobi 3 is the best ninja game bar none. It and SOR2 had insanely good soundtracks as well.

    Jumping Flash really needs a comeback.

    Goldeneye is the most overrated FPS not named Halo

    Every console Zelda after OOT has sucked

    FF 12 has the worst lead character ever

    There was a reason the N64 and the GC didnt sell, they sucked.

    Right now the Wii is the most overrated console not the PS3 or 360.

    SSMB "tourny level" sucks, it takes all the fun out of it

    DOA 4 still sucks

    Shinobi > Ninja Gaiden

    Dreamcast and Saturn are the two best consoles ever made

    SMW is the best SNes game and the best game ever

    That number system SC and GG uses fucking sucks. I will never understand how it is supposedly easier to understand 41236, then hcf.

    While I'm at it, FUCK STAR OCEAN 3. WHY THE FUCK DID ANYONE FIND THAT GAME FUN. Jesus, I had so many people tell me that game was the best rpg ever, so I tolerated 10 hours of that shit. Worst dungeon design I have EVER seen, truly abominable. Horse-shit terrible, and the game is beyond over-complicated,

    This is where my piss came to a boil.....STAR OCEAN 3 was the shit..sure it had a long ass boring story and crappy ass graphics but that game was cool..we all got different likes and dislikes though I cant say go kill yourself for that...


    now RAIDIATA STORIES....there is a boring ass game

    Id sell my wii for a 360 any day cause right the now it sucks and it is boring and people are ridin its dick

    Kingdom hearts.....need I say more?

    PSP is better than the DS

    Sports game's only purpose is that your friends wont rip on you for not having one

    Car racing games are boring

    Dreamcast was the best system ever made,,

    Sega bitched out and merged with nintendo then whored itself out to other companies

    Sonic games after sonic adventure 2 sucked ass

    SO3 Hard? Not hardly, it was one of the easier RPGs that came out for that time. Fayt + Maria = broken. The only hard part was getting the initial levels. Most of the time your characters died from AI stupidity. It had also quite possibly the worst plot twist ever.

    I completely loved Star Ocean 3. I don't see what was so bad about the level designs at all, and the gameplay system was truly innovative. There was also quite a lot to do in it. I wish they combined some of SO3's system with that of Rogue Galaxy.

    Edit: I think SO3 was hard in 4D mode, before you got all the broken things. 4D mode really frustrated me at times...especially Planet Styx, rediculous enemies there.

    And another thing...if you only played 10 hours of it, then you missed out big time. The game starts off really slow and your characters are pretty limited...I didn't like the first 5 hours or so at all. Things reallyl pick up later though. I think my save file has about 180 hours on it.

    I can't really say much about Star Ocean 3 because I haven't played it yet.

    But I do remember somebody telling me that the battle system isn't what it's all worked up to be.

    I can't think of an rpg with a more solid battle system. I don't even find FF12's system to be as good, and I liked that game a lot.

    Main problem with FF12 and Star Ocean 3 is probably the storyline...although in SO3 I at least cared about some of the characters to some extent (besides Sophia, I hated her).

    To whoever posted about Lufia 2 being the absolute best: It's funny that you're such an hypocrite, that you bash Tales of the Abyss' story later. Don't get me wrong, I love Lufia 2, but if its innovation are a random dungeon and a shop that sells things you've sold earlier....and some breedable monsters...you can't really call it innovative. Epic, fun, whatever you want, sure.

    Funny how you say "Fuck the Tales games". This topic should be about posti9ng unpopular opinions, not random-ass-outta-the-blue stuff you don't even care to explain..whatever.

    I don't understand the Hype MMORPGS have. All I've seen is hours upon hours of grinding....it semms to me they have no soul...no charm

    And you know I had to come to this eventually....

    -Unreal Championship 2. ---this is one of the greatest games ever, with a nice depth in terms of strategy, and surprising balance. Fuck everyone to hell for not truly giving it a chance. If I made a top 100 or top 50 list of greatest games ever....UC2 is somewhere in my top 10, possibly top 5. Again, fuck everyone who didn't give this greatness a chance. Eat shit, get cancer and die...all of you.

    The art for most snk/neo geo fighters sucked. I could never get excited about such boring looking characters.

    Geometry Wars is actually the most fun I've ever had with a shootemup. It's not a "memorize everything perfectly or you always lose" kind of bullshit situation, like the rest of the genre. Interestingly....you do always lose in Geometry Wars I guess since it goes on theoretically forever....but it's so fun, nobody really cares about that. The whole point is to set a new high score for yourself, like the old era of gaming....also, the chaos that happens at those high scores is thrilling.

    -Uniracers is the best SNES racing game. Pro Skater aint got nothing on it, neither does Mario Kart.
    I agree with you.
    1. Turn-based RPG = automatically terrible.
    It seems that turn-based is becoming obsolete. What was the most recent turn-based RPG to come out? DQ8? I think it's just the Japanese that still put up with turn-based. Wow, as I was typing the sentence before this one I realized that Pokemon is turn-based. The one exception. But could that just be because there has been no real-time Pokemon RPG yet?
    Here's an interesting one I got for you all..

    Traditional Style Resident Evil games (RE1, 2, etc.) are still better then RE4.

    HOW DARE YOU!!!!? The RE4 format made possible superior methods of horror/suspense/thrill. In RE4, enemies can sneak up behind you and you can't see what's around the corner. These observational weaknesses make the game more suspenseful than the traditional format where you see a zombie as plain as day at some points "hiding".

    I don't know how your first experience in RE4's sewers was but here's mine:
    Me:*walking*
    Off in the distance:*boom*-*CLANG*. *du-duff-du-duff-du-duff-du-duff-du-duff-du-duff....*
    Me:*stops and turns around*"What the fuck was that?"*sees nothing and turns back around*
    Two glowing eyes seem to be floating in mid air right in front of me but then an insectoid form begins to de-cloak around it. The insect jumps on Leon's shoulders and vomitts acid in his face. I get it off and run back to the surface and pause the game for a breather. My boy calls me a pussy.
    That number system SC and GG uses fucking sucks. I will never understand how it is supposedly easier to understand 41236, then hcf.
    FUCKING YES, I HATE THAT SHIT. Do ppl actually vocalize that shit? If you were teachng a person IRL to play Guilty Gear would you say: "Press four one two three six" instead of "half circle forward"?

    -PS2 pad is the best pad for fighting games. Better even than the Saturn pad.

    -The best pad configurement for SF-style fighters is :
    HP LP MP
    HK LK MK

    -FF8 was good(compared with the other 7-12). You think the game was shit because Junction System can be abused to get high level too soon? Well then just don't fucking abuse the system. This isn't a fighting game, you're playing by yourself.

    -I've never played a single Zelda game in my life. The only time I EVER controlled Link was in Smash Bros. It's not an opinion, but it still seems appropriate to post in this thread.

    -MvC2 and 3s are bad fighting games.

    - Metal Slug 3 is a PIECE OF SHIT. It's like Sonic CD: super-freaking-bad, yet everyone loves it for some reason. It has multiple paths. WHOOPDEE FREAKIN' DOO. I can fall asleep playing this bore-fest. It's tedious, and started the "let's make the series Battletoads-cheap" trend that 4 and 5 continued. 3 is better than 4 or 5, but that's it..

    You're outta your mind.

    It may not be the 'best' (that's because I'm procrastinating in playing through MS6), but calling it a POS is going waaaaaaaay too far. Use that classification for stuff like...Rise of the Robots and Superman 64. Metal Slug 3 is awesome.

    - Final Fantasy 7 was overrated, as was 12.

    - Square-Enix is shit.

    FF7 IS overrated, but 12 was pretty damn good(International will make it even better). I can't REALLY defend S-E because they keep milking FF remakes and spinoffs, and not trying to develop any new types of games(I'm interested to see what they do with Dissidia though), but they DID make the Valkyrie Profile games so I can't dog them out.


    - Ocarina of Time wasn't as good as Wind Waker. Yeah, I said it. Wind Waker's only blemish was the Triforce hunt.

    ??? Hell no. I'm a big Zelda fan, and as good as Wind Waker was(yes, I DID enjoy the sailing shit. ALOT), It was really short because there was only like 3-4 dungeons in the game. OoT owns it for the dungeons alone, but the last battle in WW is awesome as fuck.

    - Astroboy is the best GBA title you've never played. It's by Treasure and is very Gunstar Super Heroes-ish. Find this game NOW.

    - Metal Gear sucks. I just care for the story. On the inverse, Snake is awesome and makes Smash Bros. more awesome just by being in it.

    - Megaman X8 is the best X game. Ignore Gigavolt Man-o-War's stage, though. The rest of the game is pure sex.

    TRUTH.

    I'm a big Metal Gear fan and all, but the gameplay is old and stale now. Metal Gear Acid 2's gameplay is leaps above MGS's...I wouldn't mind if MGS4 was done with that gameplay style(with a little tweaking of course).

    - See that dude in my AV? That's Rei, the coolest Capcom character ever made. He got the shaft in the game he was in... so he better be the star of MvC3 :rofl: (Insert El Salvador reference here)

    NO. Fon Lu(I think that was his name) is the coolest Capcom Character. Rei is second I guess. BoF4 is full of win anyway.



    ...Oh yeah. I REALLY think most Sonic games are senseless trash. Primarily because for a game that's based around speed, you spend a good bit of the time walking and jumping around like it's a standard platformer. It's just gets boring after a while.

    -Ridge Racer 2 on the PSP is the best racing game ever. Gran Turismo and Forza be damned.

    -Geometry Wars is the best game on the X-Box. And probably on the 360 too.
    Being the only person to follow the rules, and then getting mocked relentlessly by my peers for it... that's the kind of shit that creates supervillans.

    Donkey Kong Country 2 is the best 2d platformer ever. Don't come up to me with your stupid fucking Yoshi's Island and its hand drawn graphics. Don't come up to me with SMW; nigga I was slipping all over the place like Mario had rollerskates. SMB3? Just a poor man's SMW. DKC2 is simply THE best.

    Controls? PERFECT
    Soundtrack? Easily one of gaming's best
    Graphics? Hella good

    Gameplay? Level design is amazing, with just the right enough length and challenge.

    Replay Vaue? 75 bonus barrels and a hidden extra-hard world not enough? How about the best designed hidden secret in gaming: the DK Coin. Sometimes they are right in the open. Sometimes they are found on the other side of a WALL. Some are found in the bonus games! A bonus within a bonus. Sirlin said it best with this article: http://www.sirlin.net/archive/hiding-secrets-in-platform-games/

    Overalll...nothing touches DKC2 as far as 2d platformers go(I think Metal Slug 3 is the only 2d title to rival it). The only problem I have with the game is that it ends, so I have to beat it all over again. So drop the stupid fucking act of Mario being king of platformers; Diddy Kong still reins supreme.

    I'll give you props for DK and DK2 but how the hell can you say SMB3 is a 'poor man's' Super Mario World? SMB3 came out years before Super Mario World; how the fuck you gonna compare it to a game on a better system years later? I won't even address your SMRPG comment 'cos that's just out there

    Mario started out poor(SMB3) and then he got a good job after eating Peach out(SMW). I thought that was pretty easy concept to understand.

    Oh, and WTF are you talking about with SMRPG?

    Edit: Also, alot of folks look at SMB3 as the best of Mario platforming. IMO, SMW was better than that game, which in turn is vastly inferior to DKC2.

    I loved Kingdom Hearts. It's a little hokey, but growing up with those movies I really appreciate how well they integrated them into the game. I seriously started crying a little when I got the Winnie the Pooh section.

    N

    I cried at the Winnie the Pooh part... but for a different reason.

    I did thoroughly enjoy Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 though. The Sora/ Roxas Organization XIII stuff was amazing and I enjoyed every last bit of that plot.

    On a side note, Atlantica should NEVER have been used for rhythm minigames, I would have rather had Sora get drunk with Johnny Depp in Port Royal and have a balance minigame than dance with Dolphins and Ariel in a rhythm minigame. If I could have designed Atlantica for KH2, the palace would be under siege and Sora would have to fight like mad to liberate it. Also, Nemo would be there... but not Dory, I hate Ellen DeGeneres. (she isn't even funny.)

    Kingdom Hearts 3 should have worlds based on Pixar movies including the Incredibles, Toy Story, and Monsters Inc. Maybe Cars, but I'm just not sure how cool that'd be.

    And Finally, Sephiroth should be able to join your party. Does anyone else think Riku is a teenage Sephiroth clone?

    - Damn... I need finish the rest of the Grandia series. I actually loved 2's engine. Canceling attacks never gets old at all. I ruined two art projects because of this game and I don't regret it at all! :)

    I saw potential in the stories for it(2), but after certain devices were implemented, the only way to go was down. They attempted to save this title with those devices, but there was some loose ends that were missed and things that were not explained. Probably I was putting too much effort into understanding the differences between the two significant deaths in this game.

    - I actually liked DOA 2.

    - Million's mad because he never used tactics...ever. LOL

    ...that went well.

    -I agree that FF8>FF7. Except I'll take it one step further: It's not just better in gameplay, it's better in EVERY respect.

    -GoldenEye sucked. And yes, I DID play back when it came out, and hated it back then, too.

    -The Wii is a boring, over-rated piece of shit.

    -MvC2 is over-rated.

    -Vagrant Story, NOT Chrono Trigger, is the best thing to ever come out from Square. And Chrono Cross>Chrono Trigger.

    That number system SC and GG uses fucking sucks. I will never understand how it is supposedly easier to understand 41236, then hcf.
    OMG TRUTH! I fucking hate that number system. There's absolutely no purpose for it, and it just makes it harder to get into those games, especially moving back and forth between those and Tekken, where the numbers represent the attack buttons.

    Perfect Dark Zero is good. Yeah, I fucking said it. The game's single player is kinda shitty, I'll give you that, but multiplayer is so much fun.

    Super Smash Brothers Melee is harder to play than any 2d fighter with the possible exception of MvC2. Definitely much harder than 3rd strike, and as far as I can tell Guilty Gear. SSBM is by far more fun than these games as well.

    Opinions =D


    Harder than Guilty Gear? Yeah, no. GG is too execution heavy. Like, your combos have to be on point if you want to win. It's a game where fucking up costs you heavily. GG goes hand in hand with Marvel.

    So if you wanna say that, then I guess it's OK to say that VF5 shits all over every fighting game ever created. You couldn't even argue that point if you wanted to.

    And even then, you can't say it's harder to play than any other fighter because mechanics play a huge role in this. Each game has it's own aspects that make it different from the rest. Does it make it harder? Hardly. If you have a common knowledge of fighters, then you should be able to understand the core gameplay before running into the advanced combos and tactics.


    And as for my opinion:

    I think Final Fantasy X was the worst piece of shit to come out on the PS2. Yeah, Square, good job with that. All this talk about pushing the PS2's limit and the game still looked like ass. The character models were bland and the only saving grace was Blitz Ball and the CG. Shit, even FF8 had a more unique system than FFX.

    Gran Turismo is one of the most overrated series out there. It's nice that it has all this customizing(putting the right car parts and shit) but damn is it boring. All the games are a chore to play. On that note, Burnout 3 > Gran Turismo 3 and 4.

    More e-pinions:

    - The XB360 is the best console on the market. Fuck Sony, fuck Nintendo. And fuck Microsoft for my console breaking down. :annoy: :annoy: :annoy:

    - Capcom's priority shouldn't be more fighting games... it should be a third Megaman Legends title. /ready to parry

    - Albel Nox is the only reason I could tolerate SO3. Albel/Crispin Freeman FTW.

    - I traded my near-mint copy of Xenogears for a slightly worn copy of Brave Fencer Musashi. I never regretted this trade, because Musashi was about 1,000,000 times better than Xeno-anything. Too bad Samurai Warrior Musashi is such a bad game.

    - If you take the "point card" item out of Legend of Legaia, it becomes the primo example of how to make a good and CHALLENGING turn-based RPG. It's the ENEMIES that should have big-ass world-destroying attacks, not you. Cort's (first fight) Evil Seru Magic/Juggernaut attack is still one of the most cool, painful looking attacks in a game I've ever seen. Oh, and defending ACTUALLY MATTERS in that game: reducing the damage of an attack to 50% of your health when it would've done 200% of your health adds a level of strategy that Final Fantasy just doesn't have.

    - The Wii is begging--BEGGING--for a well designed Green Lantern game.

    - X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse is one of the top ten SNES titles ever made. If you haven't played it, do so. And do it in one sitting for the special ending you don't get if you pussy out and use passwords.

    - I wish it wasn't Square-Enix who owned the rights to the Actraiser/Soul Blazer/Gaia series. Because I want the games, but I have sworn never to pay Square-Enix another penny. And I'm a man of my word.

    - Random IVs and unchangeable (once earned) EVs makes Pokemon shitty. That's why hackers set their IVs and EVs how they want. Wasting 500 hours making a perfect Pokemon doesn't necessarily make you any better than me for doing the same in 500 seconds.

    - I want a Pokemon game where the trainer fights. Think the first Jade Caccoon, but more in-depth, or even Azure Dreams, but without losing your levels all the time. Being able to tailor your trainer's look and skills (healer-only, tank, support, damage dealer, etc.) would be sexcellent.

    - Pichu, Pikachu, and Raichu shouldn't be part of the same evolutionary line. They should be standalone, with stats modded so that each is a competitive choice. Raichu would be more about power (sp.atk), Pichu more about speed, and Pikachu the happy medium.

    - If you ignore that Chrono Cross exists, Chrono Trigger is probably the best RPG ever made.

    - If Square-Enix releases a Chrono Trigger 2 that continues Crono's story and ignores that Chrono Cross happened, I might just break my "don't give Square money" rule. Of course, Japan will still get Chrono Trigger 2 Ultimate Special Mix, and give a big middle finger to the rest of the world. :bluu:

    - The "Tales of" series is getting old. The battle systems need some more polish, and the stories need some pizzazz. Also, Tales of the Abyss's constant town-hopping in the mid to mid-late game was mind-numbing.

    - Grandia 2 sucked. And yes I'm talking about the original DC version. Grandia 3 is good... except for the last dungeon and the events surrounding it. Very anticlimatic.

    - Mario Kart Double Dash is the best Mario Kart game. Two human players on one cart is impossibly fun. If the Wii MK doesn't have an option for two-man carts I'm going to slap a child.

    - Sonic Team was the worst thing to happen to the Phantasy Star series.
    I'm the only person on the planet that is disappointed Blizzard is making starcraft 2. I'd honestly rather see Diablo 3, Warcraft 4, or even World of Starcraft. Incoming flames.

    You aren't the only person. I, too, would've rather seen Diablo 3. But "new" Blizzard sucks, so meh.
    Metal Slug 3 is a PIECE OF SHIT

    I stopped reading after that. I'm sorry, but after this 24 hours I am legally entitled to neg you. Things like that can't be said without some sort of punishment.

    :rofl: Neg away.

    But explain: why wasn't it a piece of shit? 'Cuz I'm not perfect: it's entirely possible I'm just missing something.
    And saying MS3 is "a piece of shit" is unfair, even if the gameplay isn't polished (and I agree, MSX is the peak of the first four games), MS3 gets credit for being the best looking 2D game ever.

    It is very pretty, I can't deny that. And there are good things about it. MS3 was the last Metal Slug game I played. I played 1 in arcades, 2 and X in arcades, 4/5 on PS2 (and thought wow, when did the series start sucking?). My first taste of 6 was in the Anthology, and though it's a tad easy, I was very surprised by how well done it was.

    Then I tried 3. And I immediately thought that I was playing a slightly better version of 4 and 5. 3 was a chore to get through, even with 2 people on mindless-fun Free Play mode. Like with Sonic CD, I'm trying to go through it now and then and see why it is so highly regarded. It is filled with "cheap kills" (as in traps that cannot be escaped), long-ass sections of levels that are dull and never seem to end (the ice section in level 2, the bug lair in level 4, the ENTIRETY of level 5 after the cool retro Morden fight), and more that I don't care to dissect right here right now.
    Which is also part of why Sonic Rush was the only recent Sonic game that didn't suck ass (apparently Dimps, the Rumble Fish guys, did most of the work).

    EDIT: Scratch that, more like all of the work.

    Yeah, I should've mentioned the Dimps games. Sonic Advance 2 is kinda gay, but the other Advance games and Rush are all good eatin'. Again, no Sonic Team = better Sonic game. When will Sega realize this?
    I play Sonic the Fighters and I enjoy the hell out of the game. I really don't understand what is bad about it.

    I've got no beef with Sonic the Fighters. I don't particularly like it, but, unlike Sonic Team's Sonic games, it is polished and finished. (:rofl: again, no Sonic Team. Fancy that.)

    Sonic Heroes is a substandard, bullshit video game

    I'd rather have Sonic Adventure 2 (in the same way I'd rather have HIV than AIDS).

    -The game was repetitive.
    Every team played the exact same boring, uninspired levels. Forest stage, then Swamp stage, like I didn't have enough fucking greens with the forest for some reason. Every second stage was a remix of the stage before it. That's got to be some of the worst thinking ever. Maybe I wouldn't complain so much if playing the goddamned things didn't suck.
    -Sonic Team still didn't fix problems from the previous two games, like the dumbasses they are
    If I say "Knuckles/Rouge's search for the bullshit artifact isn't fun", that doesn't mean "Take away the radar and keep these stupid things in on a linear stage making it twice as hard to tolerate". It means take out that bullshit gameplay. Dr. Robotnik doesn't need oysters or what-the-fuck-ever and I'll be damned if I let you convince me that he does.
    -Graphics were kinda stupid for no reason
    Why does everything look so shiny? I guess Sonic Team had to lube them up while they indefinitely raped this franchise.
    -Controls are stiff
    It's cool going 90 miles an hour but if I control like a 3-wheeled go-cart it's actually rather shitty.
    -Glitched bullshit.
    I don't know why some massive jumps are done for you and others drop you straight into oblivion, but someone needs their nuts clapped for that. And while I'm on falling to my death, it's way to easy to do that when I'm using the power characters.


    It's just too hard to have fun. I fly off of some shit and lose all the powerups I worked so hard for and the stage gets even harder. NO.

    heh, hard....as compared to Sonic Adventure 2 where on that Knuckles underwater stage...you can die in about 2 billion different ways? :p

    -The only good thing about Oregon Trail was that part where you hunt animals, because it satisfies a young boy's need to kill things. I'll admit, this was the only reason I liked the game.

    -I don't care how it is in Wackyland...I mean Japan....heroes like the main guy from Final Fantasy 12, or Benimaru, or a dozen other "bishounen"whatever look super gay.

    -the 2d cutscenes from Twisted Metal 2 are a lot more interesting and aesthetically pleasing than a lot of 3d cinemas out there.

    -I seem to be the only person that cares about custom soundtracks. This is such a great option to have, yet I've been one of only 3 or 4 people ever to sing the praises of that. Come on....playing Saint's Row as Michael Jackson in the Smooth Criminal outfit...with Smooth Criminal actually playing in the background? Playing as The Terminator with The Terminator soundtrack going on? Playing Geometry Wars or whatever to the theme of The Fall Guy, Price is Right and Entertainment Tonight? Nobody sees the greatness of this? What's wrong with people...

    And since I can't edit my own posts for some reason I'm going to continue like nothing's wrong:

    The music is weak. I don't suppose making consistantly good music is as easy as refining controls or whatever so I'll be lenient. There were only like 3 songs I liked from the whole game and one of them is a special stage (which kinda suck, a detail I neglected to mention earlier). Sonic Adventure's music was the bomb, Sonic Adventure 2's was pretty good and then everything fell apart.

    In the process of giving every team the same stages, they robbed the game of its personality. I realize it's hard to have tolerable/enjoyable stages AND personality (just like it's hard to balance a fighting game) but I doubt it needed to be that bad/obvious. I beat the game with Team Sonic and couldn't find any incentive to continue (other than the story, which I'm a sucker for).

    My dream Sonic game needs:

    -Sonic Adventure's free-roaming between stages
    I'll agree that this is pointless/worthless but I liked a break and handling the characters wasn't a chore, either.
    -Sonic Adventure's music quality
    -Sonic Adventure 2 Batlle's Chao system
    SA1's was good but SA2B's blew it out of the park and SH was retarded enough not to have it.
    -NIGHTs pinball was kinda cool.
    -SA2B's head-to-head was sweet
    -They also need to find a way to make everyone's stages enjoyable. Perhaps making the Power Characters' stages a mix between Tekken Force and Sonic's stages, to prevent gross repetition. I don't know how the hell those robotic/flying characters are supposed to get by, though....They can either do that or make it just Sonic. I don't need a new furry thing every two years any-damn-way. When Sonic Team churns them out like that they get annoying. My older cousin once watched me play Sonic Adventure DX:
