  1. RPGs indeed have awesome music. My list is a little tricky since I'm considering both original and licensed game soundtracks. Keep in mind that this list may fluctuate from time to time depending on my mood and nostalgia factor. Wow, Top 20 Game Soundtracks? Alright, here we go: 1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) 2. Bully (PS2) 3. Chrono Trigger (SNES) 4. Guitar Hero II (PS2) 5. Plok (SNES) 6. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (SNES) 7. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (PS1) 8. Crash Bandicoot (PS1) 9. Final Fantasy VII (PS1) 10. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GC) 11. Donkey Kong Country (SNES) 12. Fallout 3 (X360) 13. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2) 14. Thrasher: Skate and Destroy (PS1) 15. Ape Escape (PS1) 16. F-Zero (SNES) 17. Gran Turismo 2 (PS1) 18. Doom (PC) 19. Wipeout XL (PS1) 20. Cheetahmen II (NES) Honorable mentions: - BioShock 2 (X360) - Earthbound (SNES) - Final Fantasy VIII (PS1) - Grandia (PS1) - Halo: Combat Evolved (XBOX) - Killer Instinct (SNES) - Mega Man 8: Anniversary Collector's Edition (PS1) - PaRappa the Rapper (PS1) - Red Dead Redemption (X360) - Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (GEN) - Spyro the Dragon (PS1) - Super Castlevania IV (SNES) - Super Mario 64 (N64) - Tony Hawk's Underground (PS2)
  2. Huh, that's interesting. The GameStop employee who told me they weren't must not be telling me the truth, or just misinformed (no pun intended). Yeah, digital issues aren't the same to me. There's a certain thrill I get by physically turning the next page to know more about a game that won't be out for another one or two years or even just looking at the awesome cover art for Game Informer magazines. I love that stuff.
  3. It's a tie between my PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2 as far as the most games I have for a single console. I can't give an exact amount of games, but I'd guess and say somewhere between 100-150 games on PS1 anyway. Most of the games I got used and for a pretty good price (between $0.01 - $9.99). I don't count all of my demo discs I've collected also. I'm sure I have just as many demo discs as well!
  4. This is one of those lists that deserves a lot of thinking and re-ordering, but for the sake of time and sanity, I've condensed it down to these games: 1. Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (X360) 2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) 3. BioShock (X360) 4. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PS2) 5. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (X360) Yeah, I know most of these games are current-generation games, but honestly there are a lot of incredible games that came out over the past decade.
  5. I picked up Crash Bandicoot, Wild 9 and Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style at an independent little game shop. I lost my original Crash Bandicoot game and case, so I wanted it again. I remember playing a lot of Wild 9 back in the day, but in retrospect, it's not as great as I remember. I don't know what it is. As far as Wu-Tang is concerned, it was more of an ironic purchase than anything else, you know, like when you intentionally buy a bad movie because it's funny in a dumb way or whatnot. Yeah, that game's not so great, but I dig the three exclusive tracks. Some of the "fatalities" are hilarious.
  6. I got a bundle of games a couple of weeks ago on Xbox 360: 1. Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition - $20 - Ashamed to admit I haven't started on it. I keep hearing good things. 2. Dragon Age II - $5 - Got a fantastic deal on this. Even though word is that it's not as good as DA:O, you can't beat a 10-30+ hour game for $5. 3. Final Fantasy XIII - $20 - Have not yet played this one, but after hearing how divisive it is from fellow FF fans, I'm very curious. 4. Forza Motorsport 3: Ultimate Collection - $20 - Better graphics, more cars, fun Season mode - what more could you ask for? 5. Skate 3 - $20 - I was (and still am) more of a Tony Hawk guy, but this game in particular made me a Skate believer. Just an awesome game. 6. Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection - $20 - A generous compilation of most of the hit Genesis games with some neat unlockable extras. The next games I plan to purchase in the near future: - Batman: Arkham City - Game of the Year Edition - I'm Batman. Or at least I pretend to be Batman. - Max Payne 3 - I'm a bit of a Rockstar fan boy, so I absolutely need to play this. - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dawnguard DLC - It's killing me that I don't currently have the MSP for it, but I'll get there. Someday. - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD - Super excited about this and 1200 MSP seems reasonable.
  7. It feels really early for Nintendo to announce a second version of the 3DS, but hey, I'm no businessman. Regardless, I'll probably get one eventually, maybe during a Black Friday deal or something. Then again, as Nintendo's habit of cranking out different versions of their portable consoles continue, the third rendition might be even better, so I dunno... I'm also disappointed by the lack of a second analog stick. Not that I would want to use it for shooters or anything, but mainly for in-game camera support. I'm not a fan of using the L and R buttons or even worse using the stylus to swipe across the bottom screen to do so. It's awkward. Longer battery life is always a good thing, but no AC adapter included? What? Anyway, I'll keep a close eye on it.
  8. That's quite ambitious of an asking price! I understand it is very rare and in excellent condition, but surely the seller can think of something more realistic. Perhaps $100-150?
  9. I have a subscription to Game Informer and @Gamer Magazine. I used to have physical copies of Game Informer, but now since everything is switching to digital it seems like, they only allow you to download issues from their website. I can't get it to work properly even though I paid for it and I'd much rather have the physical versions, but oh well. The @Gamer Magazine is treated more as a bonus than its own thing. It's a Best Buy-exclusive magazine from Future Publishing that is actually pretty decent even though it's mainly advertised to give you coupons, but that's not too much of a bad thing, IMO. Both magazines were included in a membership at GameStop and Best Buy, so even though I don't necessarily love the content (or can't even read the damn thing in the case of GI), I still get little goodies out of it.
  10. I saw the trailer for Wreck-It Ralph before Brave not too long ago and I was immediately sold. Seeing all of the video game villains together and banter is both hilarious and nostalgic for me, but aside from the cameos, I love the premise and visually it looks just as good as any Pixar movie. It blows my mind that Kano, a character from the ultra-violent Mortal Kombat franchise, is in a Disney movie. That's crazy! Can't wait to see it.
  11. I was really impressed with the E3 footage from Beyond: Two Souls. Knowing the developer's past experience with Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain, I know there's gotta be a lot of surprises and story twists to keep the game interesting. And like you mentioned, I'm very curious about the moral choices and how the characters will evolve towards the end. Ellen Page is a perfect casting choice for the main character. She emotes very well and, of course, the graphics look amazing. I just hope the bulk of the gameplay doesn't rely so much on quick time events. Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us are the games that definitely warrant a PS3 purchase from me. I can't wait for them to drop!
  12. 1. Super Mario Bros. 3 2. The Legend of Zelda 3. Tetris 4. Contra 5. Super Mario Bros. 6. Mega Man 2 7. Tecmo Super Bowl 8. Metroid 9. Duck Hunt 10. Castlevania II: Simon's Quest Honorable mentions: - Battletoads - DuckTales - Final Fantasy - Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project
  13. 1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2. Super Mario World 3. Donkey Kong Country 4. NBA Jam: Tournament Edition 5. Street Fighter II 6. F-Zero 7. Killer Instinct 8. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest 9. Super Mario Kart 10. Chrono Trigger Honorable mentions: - Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! - EarthBound - Ken Griffey, Jr,'s Winning Run - Mario Paint - Super Castlevania IV
  14. I never really loved the Genesis' sound capabilities, but Michael Jackson's Moonwalker and of course the Sonic the Hedgehog games have incredible music, especially "Smooth Criminal" and "Beat It" in Moonwalker. I do like how thick the bass synths sounded. Streets of Rage 2 also has excellent music.
  15. The arcade version of Final Fight, hands down. Haggar is my go-to guy. I'm way too much of a noob to beat Battletoads!
