  1. There is a similar topic about worst games in your favorite gaming series and I haven't found one for best so I thought why not make one for best. Mario: Super Mario Brothers 3, it took all the great things about Super Mario Bros and improved upon the formula that formed the standard for the series. Zelda: Tie between Ocarina of Time, A Link To The Past and Skyward Sword. A Link To The Past is everything Zelda I is only better, Ocarina of Time was a very successful transition for the series into 3D by honoring what makes the series great while keeping everything fresh and exciting. I normally don't like motion control very much but they work quite well in Skyward Sword and along with great graphics and an engaging story make for one of the best games of the previous console generation and worthy addition to a great series. Sonic: Sonic and Knuckles, it continued the awesome gameplay of the first few games and introduced my favorite character of the series.
  2. I'm not sure if someone's created a topic on this recently, but I'm starting a new thread here on the Fire Emblem series. Favorite game? Favorite lord? Favorite hero (non-lord)? Favorite villain? Favorite class?
  3. I wish that Equestria would be in a Kingdom Hearts game. I mean I would love to see Sora, Donald, and Goofy team up with the Mane Six.
  4. It happens all the time with major franchises. Look at the Sonic the Hedgehog series for an example. The series used to be make a lot of good games in the past, but now it is rare to see a good Sonic game nowadays. The Powerpuff Girls is another example, since everyone loved the first 4 seasons of the show, but a lot people hated season 5 and 6. The Star Wars movies is also another example, since everyone loves the original trilogy, but about half of the fans hate the prequel trilogy and most of the fans hate the sequel trilogy. While I do love the Kingdom Hearts series, I have a feeling that after Kingdom Hearts III, the series is going to start going downhill.
  5. Mine was Super Metroid for the SNES.

    Console or PC?

    I know, this will PROBABLY be the wrong place to talk about this (the place of this topic), but I really am too tired to change it. Sorry! (sorry if this is rude, I'm just SO tired, and I have school in the morning)

    Gaming Favorite Classic Video game?

    So, what is everyponies favorite classic games? As in the older consoles/handhelds such as, NES, SNES, N64 PS1, PS2, gameboy etc. I'll start. My most favorite classic game series was Final Fantasy. I enjoyed playing through them. Especially FFVI. Which is cool that they ported it to steam not to long ago. So I have gotten it again. Out of handhelds, I really enjoyed playing Pokemon back in the day on Gameboy Color. Favroite was Crystal. ^^ So, whats your favorite classic games?

I've been playing videogames since I was pretty much born, was born with a controller in my hand lol, but my first game was Mario I saw my brother/sisters playing so I wanted to give it a try and from the moment I picked up the controller I never put it down and from there I got my own systems and games, but as for other games I found them myself so I could expand my collection and a lot of them ended up being really good like Banjo Kazooie being one of them and many more games and like I said above my cousin introduced me to some awesome games.

    Episode 19 - "Retro" Games

    Y'know what really grinds my gears? When people call a game old, dated, or retro just because it's like two friggin' years old. Maybe it's just me, but I have a pretty wide range of what I consider "modern" when it comes to games. When I think old and retro, I think 8 and 16 bit Nintendo era or older. The other day I saw some website talking about Halo 3 as being a "retro classic". I know it probably just makes me sound like an old fogey, but Halo 3 is not a retro classic. I'm sorry, it's just not. It's a modern game. It's not new, but it is modern. If you're gonna call Halo 3 a retro classic, then what are you gonna call Super Metroid, or 8-bit Super Mario Bros, or Legend of Zelda, or friggin' DOOM? I tend to think of the modern era of gaming being at approximately PS2 and newer. I'm fine with Ocarina of Time and FF7 being called retro classics. Yeah, they are. But nothing on 360 or PS3 should be called retro or oldies. Gimmie a break, dude. I know games move quickly, but have a little perspective, man. I'm sure it does make me an old fogey, but I'm still blown away by the graphics of PS3 and 360 games. I play newer games, too, but every time I play Halo 3 or God of War 3 or Final Fantasy 13, I always just think, "Wow, this is just so gorgeous!" Most people probably look at Halo 3 today and think, "Ugh! What a muddy, pixel-y piece of garbage! I can't believe games used to look like this!", and that just kinda bugs me. Maybe it's just a generational thing that has to do with what gaming era you were born in, but I don't think I'll ever lose my appreciation for how good PS3/360 era looks. Well, that was just meant to be a quick, fun little thing, but somehow I could see this one getting me in a bit of hot water. Apologies if I ground anyone else's gears.
  11. We always seems to discuss the best of everything, but what about letdowns? So did you ever bought a game that didn't quite live up to the hype or your expectations?
  12. Hello, I am looking for people that are willing to do some voice acting (character impressions) for my creepypasta MLP game called Dreamy Rainbow 3D.

    Gaming What Games Got You Into Gaming?

    Playing games like the Banjo Kazooie series, War Of The Monsters on Playstation 2, Destroy All Humans, Star Wars Battlefront games, Ratchet and Clank games, Gauntlet Dark Legacy, and oddly enough Simpsons Hit & Run, and Road Rage were the games that really got me into video games. I used to LOVE the atmosphere in Gauntlet Dark Legacy as a kid. It's one of the earliest memories that I have actually playing video games with my Dad, and my cousins.
  17. feeling weird and bored so w/e. Just remember it's the last one you completed, not just the last one you played. Black Ops III, on my side. IDK. I'll definitely stay the fuck away from Zurich and Singapore. That much is a given.

    Gaming Rage or Fallout: Which is better?

    Which is the better post-apocalyptic game? Rage or Fallout?
  19. Beating a video game can sometimes be tricky enough on its own, but some individuals like to take it the extra mile and go for 100% completion. Whether you've collected everything, beaten every stage, or just did everything possible, it's quite a satisfying and commendable feat. I'm not much of a completionist, but I'm quite curious. What games have you completed 100%? Do you enjoy doing it, or are you content with just completing the core game? - I'm typically fine with just beating a game, but I don't mind going for 100% when given the opportunity. Although, I only engage in the endeavour of going for a full completion rate, with games that don't require hundreds to thousands of hours worth of play time.
  20. A fair number of us have played and enjoy video games. Which games mean the most to you? It can be a game that you really enjoy, or even a game that you grew up with as a child. You don't need to limit yourself to one. Name the games that have the most meaning to you and if you want, add an explanation. I'll begin: Super Mario 64 DS First Super Mario game I ever played and one of the first video games I played. I have memories of avidly exploring the castle and stages in the game. The variety of stages and the atmosphere of areas such as Jolly Roger Bay, or the sheer mystery of locations such as the Princesses' Secret Slide, were pretty amazing. The minigames were also a great time waster and I have spent an unhealthy amount of time on them, in an attempt to set freakishly high records. Pokémon Platinum Pokemon Platinum is not only the game which got me into the series, but also a game which I've wasted many hours on. Whether it was training Pokemon teams, or breeding Pokemon, my mind was always captivated by the game. I have revisited this title, time and time again. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 I remember seeing my friend play this many years ago and it was amazing to watch him play. I bought it myself soon after...and I sucked at it. Regardless I have no clue on how many times I've replayed this. I even remember once getting my mother to play against me. Good times. Mega Man 2 I will not lie, this game always used to get the better of me. I could never beat any of the robot masters and I always gave up when I failed to progress. Although, as time passed, I got a better understanding of the game and it's mechanics. Eventually, when the time was right, I played through it and beat it. Defeating the final boss with just a sliver of health and with one life left, is something which one cannot simply describe.
  21. Games. Games are fun! Definitely. Well, not always. Sometimes. games can be frustrating and not in a good way either. A game can sometimes anger us and just make us feel oh so frustrated and the results may not be good. For some of us this may happen rarely but for others it could be a common occurrence due to one reason or another. So I want to ask and discuss, do video games tend to frustrate you easily? What is your history with this? Me, they do frustrate me easily. My whole life I have had anger problems, yay for bad mental health. It has been a big problem in the past and nowadays, I try my hardest to avoid playing games that could potentially frustrate me to a high degree. Often, if I get frustrated enough, this could result in a meltdown and that never ends well, since it can result to me...well, hitting my face. I am autistic before you ask. So those moments are not good, especially in combination with my anxiety problems, so I try to avoid those moments at all costs now.
  22. What is your favorite game in the Mario Kart series? I've played every game in the series but Mario Kart 8, and my favorite is Mario Kart Wii. I love its wide selection of tracks, karts, and players.

    Movies/TV Top 10 Anime Guys

    Okay so I sat on that thread that was asking about your favorite anime girls for like 10 minutes and I just COULD NOT think of any for the life of me, but a ton of guys I remembered came up! So instead of just being all "hur dur I can't think of any girls so here's some guys" I decided to make a new topic. So why don't all you lovely ponies tell me about your favorite guys in anime. And maybe some reasons if you're feeling really bold. Whether it be attitude, appearance, the curvature of their spine, whatever! Also it doesn't HAVE to be in order! Honestly I've always been bad at rating my love for things in order so just throw em out as they come to you! 10. Ritsu Kasanoda from Ouran Host Club - "No. I'm not a human weapon. I was just born with this scary-looking face." His whole "rawr I'm a bad ass" persona covering up his desire to have friends and be loved is absolutely adorable. And when he starts "training" to be a part of the Host Club? Priceless. x3 9. Edward Elric from Full Metal Alchemist - "WHO ARE YOU CALLING A RUNT SO TINY HE COULD ONLY BE SEEN WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS, YOU JERK!" Honestly his character is actually pretty annoying to me... But he still makes the list because of the love he shows for his brother and despite being a shrimp, has a gorgeous body build and some pretty luscious hair when he lets it down. lol 8. Crow from Deadman Wonderland - "Ssslice!" He's a tough guy that turns red at the sight of a sexy lady. I know, dime a dozen. But his honorable personality and the fact he actually has a reason to wear an eye patch (ala surgically removed from his skull while he was still awake) make him an awesome character. 7. Kogarashi from Kamen no Maid Guy - "Ku ku ku!" Seriously what can I say about this big lug? He would be the best maid ever! He's got super human strength, he's loyal, he's a master of cooking and cleaning and various other skills. I mean he has no regard for personal space, but that's a small price to pay. ;3 6. Crona from Soul Eater - "Ewww...I don't want to hang out with someone disgusting as poop!" Yeah, yeah, I know they never right out and say if it's a boy or a girl but I don't care. It'll always be a guy in my mind. Crona is probably one of the only characters in this show who didn't bug the ever living shit out of me. I know everyone in the show had their own little OCD or whatever, but being nervous and "not able to deal with something" makes much more sense to me. 5. Shikamaru Nara from Naruto - "Oh, man… those clouds are so lucky… so free…" Calm, calculating and cute as a button. Probably one of the best laid back characters I've seen portrayed in an anime. Might seem lazy and easy to give up but just knows on a deep level when effort won't pay off. 4. L Lawliet from Death Note - "I'll give you a strawberry if you keep this a secret" An eccentric "master detective" that has an insatiable hunger for sweets. What's not to love? Also very cute moment with Light when he was drying off his feet. You try and tell me that wasn't an intimate moment! xD 3. Kamina from Gurren Lagann - "Who the hell do you think I am?!" Because he's just so damn GAR! <3 2. Vyers from Disgaea - "I am the aristocrat who loves beauty and strength above all else. I'm Vyers, The Dark Adonis!" You want elegant? You got it. Despite how much he gets bashed and stomped on by the protagonists he always had an air about him that was akin to James from the Pokemon series. They're both just so... charming! 1. TK from Angel Beats! - "Hey yo check this out it's a moon walk, it's a moon walk, headspin!" This guy is amazing and never fails to crack me up with how out of the loop he always seems to be. Eyes always covered with a bandana, never saving much of anything besides short English phrases and frequently dancing and boppin' around to some beat only he can hear. Love, love, loooove.
  24. I made an incredible realization about my own mind while playing God of War III. In fact, it's so strange that I'm actually having trouble believing it. There are several mini-games in God of War III that involve flying up and down the Chain of Balance, dodging obstacles and debris. Here is one such scene. In this scene, you use your Icarus wings to fly up the chain. Just watch long enough to get the basic idea. Now, during this scene, I find that I must have the y movement axis inverted. My brain expects this to behave like a flight sim. It feels like it should play like Starfox. I should tilt the stick up and move down, and vice versa. If I use normal axes, I can't play it to save my life. I die every time. With inverted, I pass it on the first try every time. Now check this out. In this scene, you free fall down the chain. During this scene, I have to have normal controls, or I can't do it! With an inverted y-axis, I can't play, and I die every time! With normal controls, I'm flawless every time. There is absolutely no functional difference between these scenes whatsoever. Literally the only difference is that you can see your wings in one, and not the other. The only explanation for this phenomenon is simply the knowledge that I'm ascending in one, and falling in the other. For some reason, my brain expects ascension to behave like a flight sim, but free falling to behave normally. If the devs removed the wings from the first scene, and told me that I was falling, I would probably need normal axes, and vice versa on the second scene. This stunning realization about the expectations of my mind has me reeling. I don't like feeling so uncertain. I'm the type of person who wants all things to make logical sense. I want to be able to play these scenes consistently with ONE control type (I don't really care which). But I can't. This phenomenon duplicates itself every time I play. It's not a problem, and it's kinda neat, really, but it makes my brain itch because it feels like my world won't cohere. This is irrefutable proof of how belief and expectation can radically alter your brain's entire way of functioning. How f*cking crazy is that?!!

    Adult Gamers

    I'd like to talk for a few minutes about adult gamers, and the surprising mindset still lingering in a few people today that video games are but a child's toy that a mature adult has no business playing. Considering where I am at the moment, the MLP forums, I'd be willing to make a deal to eat my computer if there's a single person on these forums who harbors this opinion, however, this opinion is still floating around in the world. There are still those who hear about an adult who plays video games, shake their heads, and says, "Ugh. How can a grown man/woman waste their time with children's toys? Grow up." I recently watched a old video by Boogie2988 about this very subject. I'm sure many of you are familiar with him. Here's the video if you're interested. It's old, but not old enough to be irrelevant by any means. The following story is basically a response to that video, and a story you can tell if you ever meet someone who says games are just for kids. I am 31. I have been a die hard gamer for my entire life. I started gaming practically before I could walk. About five or so years ago, my mom got into gaming. She would have been....~57 at the time. She had her first taste of video games, as many older folks have, with Wii Sports. She has never been interested in gaming before. She never gave it much thought. It didn't seem to her like something she'd be interested in, or indeed able to do. It was a young person's thing. But she was instantly intrigued by the Wii Sports. (And props to Nintendo, here; they were really ingenious with Wii Sports, and the Wii in general. It attracted so many people outside of the regular demographic. They expanded their market so much. It really was a smart move, and a brilliant business model.) So, my mom asked if she could try it, and I did it with her, and to all of our surprise, she loved it. She asked me to play it with her all the time, and I gladly made time to do so, even though I wasn't all that interested, to be honest. I'd rather play Final Fantasy, or Skyrim, or Halo or something. After awhile, my mom wanted more, and became curious about what she could do. I took it upon myself to become a gaming mentor to her, and to try to expand her horizons. We bought some simple Wii games to get her started. She loves CSI and Project Runway, so we got the Wii games of those. Little more than animated menus, these games can hardly be called games. They are rudimentary point and click apps that would be best suited to a phone. (Indeed, I have mobile app games that are more robust than those.) She devoured these quickly and was hungry for more. We graduated to some more substantial games, and got her Final Fantasy: Chocobo's Dungeon, Epic Mickey, and Disney Universe. She loved them. I mean, she absolutely loved them. She was just madly in love with Epic Mickey and Chocobo. She played them non-stop. She had a lot of trouble along the way, but I helped her every step of the way. She then had her first experience with a sh*tty game, which every gamer has to square with at some point.. She tried Cursed Mountain on Wii. When she got stuck, and I tried to help, and I can attest to the fact that that game was definitely sh*t. She resold it back to the used game place. She played a few other simple Wii games after that, but she quickly started running out of options. Her needs were growing a bit specific: she needed a real, robust game with enough challenge to be interesting, but not so hard as to become a roadblock when she runs into a boss she can't handle. After all, she was very new at this. A small fish in a small pond. I tried to think of what would fit the bill. I did some research, watched tons of Wii reviews. Nothing where the game would stop if she can't beat a boss. No God of War games. That wouldn't do. She needed freedom. I had a wild idea, and I decided to pitch it out of the blue one day. After helping her with something on Mickey, I said, "So, mom, would you like to learn how to play Skyrim?" She was surprised, a little hesitant, but then said, "Yeah. Absolutely." And so, we undertook the epic journey. I had already mastered Skyrim inside and out, so I would be her guide and mentor. I gave her semi-formal lessons. I even formulated a bit of a curriculum in my head before-hand. We would sort of alternate between lessons on smithing, enchanting, perk constellations and all that stuff, and hands-on combat training. She did amazingly well. Over the months, I watched her grow from bumbling around like an idiot, getting stuck in a corner and helplessly spinning in a circle while looking at the floor, to playing completely proficiently, crafting dual-enchanted Daedric armor, killing Alduin, getting stealth kills, riding her horse, and using an infinite alteration set to hold a piece of fruit with telekinesis to level grind. Oh, she was no pro-gamer by any means, and certainly could not survive Legendary difficulty, but she was absolutely proficient. She LOVED it. So much. She had the most fun she's had in years. She was blown away by how much she loved it. She did everything. Every quest, every house, every thane task, every misc objective. Everything. She milked Skyrim for every drop it was worth, and she wanted more. I recently picked out a new game for her. It was a bold choice, and I wasn't sure how it would work out, but my instincts told me she'd love it. Red Dead Redemption. Now, here's the odd thing--I've never played Red Dead. (Yes, yes, I know--crucify me, right here and now.) I own it for PS3, but I've never played it. It's sitting, along with many other great titles (Last of Us, for one) in my to-play stack. The only reason I haven't gotten to it is simply time constraints. I'm just too busy, and I tend to put more of a priority on the multiplayer games that my friends are into on Steam. But I'm a GTA 4 veteran, and I knew Red Dead would be similar, and I knew enough about it that I knew I could trust the game and the developer. So we bought it for her on 360. She knew I had never played it, so she knew she would be sailing into uncharted (yes, that's in my to-play stack also) waters. She wasn't in the small pond anymore. She was in the middle of the f*cking ocean. I gave her the Celestia-type speech: "I'll still be here to help and guide you, but this is your game now, and you must rely on yourself now. Remember everything I've taught you." I am immensely proud of her. It's amazing. So little experience, such a newbie, such a green gamer, and she is handling herself remarkably well. Sure, she dies a lot, and combat is tough at times, but she plays that game. I mean, she plays the hell out of it. She completes missions, kills the bandits, rides horses, plays mini-games, collects money, harvests resources, hunts animals, explores the world. She really does it, and all on her own, and she f*cking LOVES it. She is so excited to play it. She never imagined that she'd enjoy shooting bandits and hunting game in the wild west; it's so far removed from the norm of her life, but she absolutely f*cking LOVES it. Just loves it. Gaming has become a fantastic new hobby for my mom. Her life was getting a little...shall we say...routine, and gaming has given her so much new fun and excitement. And there's no question that it's sharpening her mind and dexterity as well. And she's even playing Final Fantasy VI from the Wii virtual store on the side! And you know what she loves almost more than gaming? Telling people she's a gamer! She doesn't go around broadcasting it or anything, but when it comes up naturally, she gets such a big kick out telling people, and she just loves their total shock that an older woman plays f*ckin' Skyrim, Final Fantasy, and Red Dead. It just tickles her to death. She is extremely proud of her hobby, and I'm so happy for her. My mother is 62 years old, and she plays the hell out f*cking RED DEAD REDEMPTION, and loves it. Games are for everyone. That's all I have to say. *EDIT* Update a few months later--She's now working on the Halos. Finished 1 and loved it. Nearly done with 2. And she got Fallout 3 for later.
