Day 1 - Your favorite video game

This is hard ;_; I think I'm going to have to go with The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Wait WHAT? Not Ocarina of Time? Nope! I loved Ocarina of Time, but the dark storyline that MM wove was just amazing. The world truly felt alive with all of the side quests too, and the NPCs just felt extremely real. The fact that they own had their own schedules and what you did had a big effect on them, plus how the worry for the crashing of the moon got more intense as your three days pressed onwards was fantastic. Plus all the masks you could screwed around with just added an entire new dimension for the games.

Day 1 - Your favorite game

For me... It has to be C&C Tiberian Sun. I love RTS games, i love em when they have some kind of futuristic weaponry and thats just what Tiberian Sun has. It has a awesome story, great cutscenes and fun units... Im still playing the game a lot and it will always have a good spot in my memories

Day 01 - Your favourite video game(s)

I'd probably say Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, Pokemon Emerald and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

I didn't mean to have them have the no. 3 in common sry.

I love Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 due to it's amazing range of creative tools and fun scenarios. Another feature I loved was the ability to make your own bilboards with picture you could import. Top that off with the fantastic expansions it received and the unbeliveable flexible Extended Coaster, and you get my favorite simulation game ever.

Pokemon Emerald is for me, and probably in 50 years time, where the series peaked for me. The Hoenn region looks beautiful on the GBA's limited hardware and it has a excellent range of Pokemon, with all the new ones looking superb. The battle frontier was amazing as well, so much so that it had a entire season of the anime about it.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is possibly one of the most engrossing and enjoyable experiences I've had in recent memory. It's challenging, well made and has 12 weapons all with unique and customizable characteristics. Plus the (REGION FREE ZOMG) online play that the Wii U version brings works amazingly well and proves that a Nintendo system can give a stellar online experience without the subscription fee.

This is quite hard... I would say... the Pokemon franchise and World of Warcraft.
Pokemon because... we got so much stuffs to do, trade, battle, collect, breed and all those good stuffs. The story is amazing the versatile Pokemon are amazing.

For World of Warcraft, because I like being able to have different character to play with, in case I get bored with one. There's tons of stuffs to do; PvE, PvP, Roleplay, Do achievements, and wayy more.

I just like games where you have tons of stuffs to do and not only one simple goal of finishing the game.

Day 01 - Your favourite video game(s)

Pretty much Tales of Vesperia. I already said this, but, I really love the game play mechanics, and it does have a really good display of characters! Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Tales of Symphonia also deserve pretty good mentions!

Day 01 - Your favorite video game(s)

Ah, I was wondering when this thread was gonna show up. :P I enjoyed last year's one a lot.

Mother for the NES is still my all favorite game since I played it about 4 years ago. Shining Force III, Chrono Cross, and Tactics Ogre are all up there as well, but no game has left me with the feeling that the original Mother did. The series the general is amazing, and it's sad to see such a beloved franchise end at the third game.

Day 01 - Your favourite video game(s)

Listing a bunch of my favourite games would be easy, but I wanted to pick just one. After some deliberation, I've decided to go with the one that started it all for me: Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

I already know that this game is going to take up a couple of the slots over the next 30 days, but this game is really one that defined my childhood. It was such a simple game that really only required one button and the directional pad to play, which is why I was able to pick it up as a preschooler and still have fun.

To this day, I still play this game every so often (either on an emulator or my DS), just because I've had so many great memories with it, and it's one of those games that've aged really well.

Day 02 - Your least favourite video game(s)

Superman 64 for the Nintendo 64. I just... really hate how they made that game; the controls are sensitive, and it's relatively boring as immediately, you'd fly through rings, then pick up cars, and this cycle of boring-missions continues. :x

Day 02 - Your least favourite video game(s)

(I missed the first day)
my favourite is the pokemon series, mario series, spyro, skyrim, monster hunter tri and many more.
My least favourite games are Blob, Bit runner 3ds, sims 3ds and a few more (can't remember them)

ShadowE May 1st, 2013 6:45 AM

Day 02 - Your least favorite videogame(s)

Pokemon B/W & CoD MW3.
MW3 is the worst, it looks just the same as MW2, only with a few new stuff.. Story is rubbish and way too easy. Overall its just MW2 all over again.
Pokemon B/W is also i game i didnt like, it was way too easy and the mons looked ridiculous on first sight. It was a game i regret buying since i like challenges and B/W didnt give any challenge.

Day 1: Favorite video game
Absolutely pokemon HeartGold (johto has always been my favorite region [followed by unova] and the game mechanics are so great). Also I love lunar silver star harmony, and the tales of seris

Day 02: Least favorite video game
That's a tough one but I guess I have to go with some old gsme boy color games, like home alone.

JayD May 1st, 2013 7:40 AM

Day 02 - Your least favourite video game(s)

Call of Duty franchise. The franchise gets so much hype for nothing, every new release is like a couple of new guns with some new maps added into it. Nothing really much changed and the concept is pretty much the same thing over and over.

Mr. X May 1st, 2013 9:04 AM

Day 01 - Your favourite video game(s)

Hard to say. A lot of great games exist.

Mega Man would have to be my favorite series - All of them are great.

My favorite PC game would be Heavy Gear II. A old-ish mech sim. A new game in this series is being made right now, Heavy Gear Assault, but I'm not very optimistic on how it will turn out.

Game intro and first campaign intro.

Day 02 - Your least favourite video game(s)

Tiberian Twilight. That game is failure all around. CnC, Tiberian Sun, Firestorm, Tiberium Wars, Kanes Wraith - All of them great. I eventually got used to Twilight, but compared to all of it's predecessors it sucks.

Day 02 - Your least favorite video game(s)

Honestly, nothing immediately comes to mind. I'm pretty sure it's something I rented long ago, but I can't really remember anything. Sure, I gave Superman 64 a chance back when it came out, but I barely gave it any time to warrant an opinion.

I mean, if I had to choose something, it be Arc the Lad: End of Darkness. A below average game, (on the thin line though) that pretty much killed a pretty decent series of SRPGs that I enjoyed.

Para-Dox May 1st, 2013 2:31 PM

Day 02 - Your least favourite video game(s)

Hard to really say anything as I haven't played a lot of games I don't like. I would have to go with the mobile phone Java port of Sonic the Hedgehog. Horrible controls and unfinished graphics, and the MIDI music grates on the ears.

Cherrim May 1st, 2013 4:57 PM

Day 01 - Your favourite video game(s)
My favourite game of all time is Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. I've poured hundreds of hours into all the different versions of it since it was first released and I still love it to pieces. (I'd probably just play it all the time if I didn't have such a huge backlog to get through.) I played it again the other month after not touching it for over a year and I just had so much fun. I love the characters, gameplay, story, everything.

A close second is probably Tales of the Abyss.

Day 02 - Your least favourite video game(s)
Toss up between Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded and Epic Mickey. At least with the former I didn't really have many expectations to be ruined since I hadn't really been looking forward to it or anything, but the latter? I was expecting a great game and I really didn't enjoy it when I finally got to play it. :( It was beyond disappointing. I still finished both of the games but man I regret playing/buying them. Waste of time and money.

TRIFORCE89 May 1st, 2013 7:04 PM

Day 01 - Your favourite video game(s)
Overall, my favourite game series are Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, and Metroid. I'd try to narrow it down to a few from each, but it'd still be a large handful of games in the end so I won't bother.

But, in addition to those: Pikmin and Banjo-Kazooie

Day 02 - Your least favourite video game(s)
Epic Mickey gets top honours here, if you could call it that. Not only was the game horrible, but I encountered a game-ending glitch. So, a total waste of money became an even greater waste of money.

Also Sonic and the Secret Rings. Found it unplayable.

Day 03 - A game that is underrated

Auto Destruct for the Playstation 1. I honstly think it's just as good as Twisted Metal; it's really awesome if you like car violence with all sorts of weapons like rockets, etc. I'd also like to mention Mana Khermia for the Playstation 2, because there is not much talk about that game, but it honestly have one of the best soundtrack I've ever heard!

Brendino May 2nd, 2013 1:57 AM

Day 02 - Your least favourite video game(s)

I can't say that there's one single game that's my least favorite compared to any other, so I'll just throw a blanket over the numerous first-person shooter games out there. This isn't to mean that they're bad at all, but I've just never found myself able to enjoy any of the games in the genre.

Day 03 - A video game that is underrated

I know that I'm forgetting a game, but another one that always stuck out in my head was Driver: Parallel Lines. It scored slightly above average reviews at best from different game critics, but I found that I enjoyed it a lot more than Grand Theft Auto 3 and any of its sequels (despite them having much higher reviews).

I guess I loved the fact that the story took place over two different time periods (1978 & 2006), as the same character. You could really see a significant difference in cityscape, vehicles and characters, yet you still knew exactly where you were going, if you knew the map well enough. It also had a pretty good soundtrack, much like those of GTA, too.

Day 03 - A video game that is underrated


A platforming game in which you control a ninja who have to save the world with the help of your sensei who died in the beginning of the game.
Every level is completely different from the previous ones and the boss battles are always different too. You also have so many moves to use from; you can double jump, fly with your sword, you can run up walls, wall jump, grind on rails, swing with your grappling hook, run at high speed like in Sonic games and you can also become a ball like in Super Monkey Ball.
The NPCs are smart when you're battling so you can't only hack and slash, you gotta use different sets of moves to defeat them.
The boss matches can differ from defeating a flock of boats from reaching the bay to a boxing match with a huge robot.
The controls are very fluid and easy to play, the game gets a bit difficult after some time but the high number of checkpoints makes it dying friendly.
You also have a level up system for the color of your belt and the color of your sword. So you'll always want to level those up since it helps you with enemies in the game.

Cherrim May 2nd, 2013 8:23 AM

Day 03 - A game that is underrated

I can't really think of any games I've played that people don't like or don't give enough credit to. I guess I'll go with Puzzle Agent (and to a lesser extent, Puzzle Agent 2) because not many people have played them. They're not great games but I really loved their art style and atmosphere and I wish more people would pick the games up. Similar feelings about Ben There, Dan That, which is a hilarious British point and click adventure.

DavidtheDeadPhilosopher May 2nd, 2013 2:06 PM

Day 1- Your Favourite Video Games

Final Fantasy VII-
One of the finest RPG's I ever played. An excellent story combined with a battle system that allowed you to pour some time into it without going overboard with the complexity, It hasn't aged well graphically, but it's music is still memorable to a T. A mind bending villian, and one of the gamings most endearing bad motha's Sephiroth.

Bastion- An Action RPG that's all heart. A game so atmospheric that your are immediately sucked in and you stay that way throughout the entire game. The deep grass rooty voice of the narrator as he guides you along, the wonderful variety of enemies, weapons, buffs, and even Halo Skull like difficulty modifiers, all in which the narrator takes note of as your travel onward as you try to discover what exactly happened to your world. Every character has a purpose and is well written. The soundtrack is so wonderful it's to this day the only soundtrack I've purchased...

Day 2- What is your least favourite Game

Sonic 06-
The reboot of the Sonic the Hedgehog series that was released muti-platform for both the Xbox 360 and Ps3. It was an overall failure in all departments, save one. (It's Soundtrack) Game Breaking glitches, mediocre graphics, and over world that is boring and far to large. It had an interesting set of levels, but every single one of them had flaws in design causing them to be semi-unplayable at the worst of times. A boss battle that was so broken it was suddenly much harder then it should of been. A storyline that is both bland and has alot of moments of previously established characters acting out of character (The biggest victim being Sonic himself). It's a mess, and from someone who enjoys Sonic deeply, it's just dissapointing.

Day 3- A Game that is underrated.

Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al Reviz
Mana Khemia is a Jrpg that was released for the Playstation 2. It's a game that I feel fell of the radar quickly despite having some very good qualities about it. Granted it has it's problems, there are some framerate issues which could very well turn people off. If you can get past though, you discover and JRPG with some very fun characters, battle system, and an alchemy system that allows you some fairly interesting customization. There also is not levelling in the game. Everything is tied to what you create through your alchemy, and the items you create give you buffs and abilities when placed onto a grid. It reminds me a bit of the Sphere's in FFX or the Licences in XII.

thedestinedblade May 2nd, 2013 3:59 PM

Day 03 - A video game that is underrated

I think for the previous thread my answer was the Baten Kaitos games, but this time I'll go with Dual Hearts for the PS2. A couple years ago I was buying all these obscure/unknown PS2 games off Ebay (lol), and this happened to be one of them. Released pretty much at the same time as the original Kingdom Hearts makes it easy to understand why it was overshadow. The game kinda has the same play style and feel to it as KH, but nowhere near the polish. Even so, it has a certain charm about that it that I really enjoyed.

TRIFORCE89 May 2nd, 2013 4:49 PM

Day 03 - A game that is underrated
No idea. I don't think I've played much that isn't from some sort of popular franchise
