    I got a PC in early 1987, and didn't get an NES till Xmas '88, so I was playing games on a PC for almost 2 years before getting an NES. That said, I enjoyed both as a kid, but it's mostly the PC games that I find myself still returning to as an adult (actually, just today I was playing Police Quest 2, coincidentally another 1988 game). But anyone who didn't grow up playing DOS games might find them hard to enjoy now. They aren't nearly as pick-up-and play as a console game, and usually required you to study a manual of some sort before you have any hope of knowing how to play, since it wasn't uncommon for every key on the keyboard to be used for something. Genres were being created and evolved left and right in those days, so almost every new game had a new and untested UI, some of which worked better than others. When a game was designed and programmed by a single person, they sometimes didn't realize that not everyone would think the same way they did, so you might end up with overly complicated/obtuse controls or gameplay. But figuring that stuff out was part of the fun back then. Heck, even figuring out how to get a game working properly in DOS was sometimes an adventure in itself.

    I'll admit, my first experience with Sim City wasn't until the SNES port two years later. Still, aside from being forced to use a D-Pad to control a game designed for a mouse, I think the SNES port is actually better in a lot of ways. Of course, all future Sim City games would be great on PCs and garbage on consoles, so the SNES port being decent may have been a fluke (or the fact that Nintendo themselves handled the port). Here's a guide to the PC-98 version: https://archive.org/details/simcityguidebook

    In retrospect, it seems blatantly obvious that a magazine titled "GamePro En Espanol" would just be plain old GamePro...in Spanish. A-duh. I'm unfamiliar with GamePro...are the Spanish edition covers exclusive to that version, or do they use the same art as the English ones? Regardless, if the contents are nothing but translations, that renders something that was already of niche interest into something almost entirely lacking of importance as well. Unless of course you only speak Spanish.

    BWA-HAHAHA!!! OK, just so everyone is clear...just about every file I've ever uploaded to the Internet Archive is a CBR file (maybe ALL of them...?). So if you download any of my uploads there, you MUST DOWNLOAD THE CBR...NOT THE PDF!!!!! The Internet Archive automatically generates a PDF file any time a CBR is uploaded, but the PDF is for OCR purposes ONLY. A 100 MB CBR will become a 5 MB PDF because the only thing it's preserving is the text - the images are all compressed to the point that they're just blobs of color. These files should NOT be downloaded. The CBR is what you need. I bring this up because I just noticed that someone recently swiped all 170+ of my IA uploads and uploaded them to one of those other sites that likes to mirror files...except they copied the PDFs by mistake So now they have 170+ files that look like dog$#!+ cluttering up their site! Sigh... Well, that's their problem, I guess. But I'd hate to think that any of you guys might also make such a dumb mistake, so again: for any and all files you see linked to in this thread, leave the PDFs alone and DOWNLOAD THE CBR, BIATCHES!!!

    i never got too into PC games, and the NES was/is my first love. if we're talking late '80s/early '90s, my list is going to be practically all NES. definitely some fun lists here already. i like that we've all used slightly different criteria, but all are accurate.

    Btw, I just want to thank @Areala for sharing her opinion. I was unsure if it was the right thing to do, starting a new topic that wouldn't attract people looking for download links, since as I said, I'd rather not start new threads of me talking to myself. But now I know that someone actually read this post! And even replied! Thank you! I didn't know such things could even be hoped for in a forum.

    It can't be helped. Magazine scanning community is miniscule, with a miniscule audience. For most it's mainly about getting it scanned in the first place and moving on to the next magazine. What the community needs is more volunteer editors.

    The above list was chosen by Famitsu's readers. Next up are the genre awards, chosen by the Famitsu staff: Best RPG - Dragon Quest III (Famicom) Choosing otherwise would have caused riots in the streets, I presume Best Shooting Game - Gradius II (Famicom) - This one never made it stateside, but I've played it, and yep...it's a Gradius game, all right. Best Sports Game - World Court - (PC Engine) - GREAT SCOTT!!! It's not a baseball game!!! (This selection caused riots in the streets, I presume) Best Strategy Game - Famicom Wars (Famicom) Advance Wars was great fun, but going back afterwards to try this one was a let-down. Best Action Game - Super Mario Bros. 3 (Famicom) And just like 1987, the editors decided that certain genres didn't have any games good enough to qualify for an award, so they only get "runner-up" status: Runner-Up Action-RPG - Ys (Master System) Sigh. I'm not sure that "bump into the bad guys over and over" qualifies as "action," but there you have it. Runner-Up Adventure Game - (tie) Famicom Tantei Club, Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom (Famicom) As a huge fan of the graphic adventure genre, I'd like to disqualify every Japanese adventure game ever made from attaining anything higher than "runner-up" status. Even that might be too generous. At least Princess Tomato isn't another murder mystery, I guess. Runner-Up Puzzle Game - Tetris (Famicom - Bullet Proof Software version) BPS's stupid backwards control scheme (down on the D-pad to rotate, A button to drop) relegates one of the greastest puzzle games ever to "runner-up" status And finally, the special category awards: Best Story - Final Fantasy II (Famicom) It didn't take much for a console game in 1988 to win this award. This game perhaps begins the devolution of the JRPG into the "visual novel with battles" railroad experience they would become by introducing distinct characters with predetermined dialog and plots. You're no longer roleplaying a character - you're simply guiding a pre-scripted character along the path determined by the developers. Best Character Design - Dragon Quest III (Famicom) Akira Toriyama is like a god in Japan Best Graphics - Alien Crush (PC Engine) Well chosen Best Music - Galaga '88 (PC Engine) Err..... If you say so. Best Topic (?) - No-Ri-Ko (PC Engine) The first ever CD-ROM for the PC Engine. This was a pile of crap that almost doesn't even qualify as a game, but that didn't matter. People could watch and listen to jpop idols prance around on their screens, and the landscape of Japanese gaming would never be the same. Best Port - R-Type (PC Engine) near arcade-perfect Best Production - Ninja Gaiden (Famicom) The cinematic cut-scenes between levels were groundbreaking, even if the plot was ridiculous Best TV Commercial - Famicom Wars (Famicom) Allllll righty then. Best Design - (tie) Matsumoto Tooru no Kabushiki Hisshougaku, Kaettekita Mario Brothers (Famicom) A stock trading game. Yawn. Also, a remake of the original Mario Bros. (not SMB) which is more accurate to the arcade version - only sold for the FDS Disk Writer, so no actual disks/packaging were ever produced. An old-school "digital-only" release, if you will.

    *raises hand* I think it's worthy of praise, though I've never played it as it's not my idea of a good time. The main thing about Elite was that it was a trailblazer for procedural generation, and by using it they managed to fit their entire "universe" (8 galaxies, 256 planets) in the minuscule portion of the available 32KB RAM. The gameplay was interesting with a fair amount of depth in the trading and missions, though I'm dubious how novel that aspect was. Some claim that it laid the groundwork for open world games. I am slightly too young to have played it myself at the time, but I was aware my folks played it on our Acorn Electron (a BBC-comaptible whose version of Elite was slightly neutered). At the time it made a huge splash, the UK scene was on fire at the time and this was one of the best games to come out of that period. I don't know if it'd hold up today, when there are more modern sequels or alternatives to be played. *shrugs*

    LOL. I just noticed that this file had zero guest downloads (most of our files are over 50% guest downloads, or in the case of the Final Fantasy VII Strategy Guide, over 90% guest downloads.) Something got messed up on the back end, but I just fixed it. So for everyone who visits the site but is too antisocial to register, you can download the file now.

    Ken Shimura, comedian, musician and co-star of Hudson's PC Engine game Kato-chan & Ken-chan (an altered version was released in the USA as J.J. & Jeff) has become the first celebrity in Japan to die from the Corona virus. I've never played the game, but any game that had to be censored for American audiences for containing too much toilet humor is OK in my book.
