It wasn't until 7 or 8 years after Earthbound came out that I first played it, due to a friend's recommendation. I was blown away. The story is fantastic and I love the subtle humor. I think I must have played it through at least 5 times. Still haven't had the time to break into Mother 3 yet... I'm sure its available now with a proper English translation.
Chrono Trigger is amazing. Final Fantasy 6 (labeled 3 in America) and Secret Of Mana are all RPGs I enjoyed as well. I'm a sucker for the classics. After Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, I kind of stopped playing new video games. Definitely not up to speed with the rest of the world...
Currently trying to start Dark Souls - when they said the game was tough I didn't expect basically every enemy in the game to be completely life threatening, bloody hell I have no idea how to tackle this one !
Played a few of my favourite SNES games on my Android tablet a few weeks ago, like Super Metroid, Super Mario Kart, Final Fight.... memories.. they play superbly well on there actually. Heard alot of but never played Earthbound, need to give it a try sometime.
The only other games I played over the last two weeks was a couple of go's at Crysis 1, with ultra high graphics at full resolution and all that jazz. Pretty cool. Also played a tiny bit of co-op Halo 4 at my brother's. Fun, but seriously, its all same old same old
OK, just finished Uncharted 4. I know a lot of people dismiss this (and the whole series) for being formulaic, its scripted scenes, riddles from the kindergarten, and stupid shootouts all the time, and yes I can understand it all when it comes to parts 1-3, but THIS was just incredible. The graphics in this game are just stunning, the most beautiful and bombastic visuals I´ve ever seen in a game, story, staging and dialogues were top-notch, and the action was enthralling and subtile with lots of sneaky stealth scenes, almost Metal-Gear-Solid-like. Some very big areas that give an almost open-world-feeling with lots of hidden stuff and secrets to discover.
...aaaand that fucking brilliant Monkey-Island-Easter-Egg, that was before my eyes all the time and I didn´t recognize it! Had to visit some gaming site to realize the maybe funniest in-game-joke of all time!
Just look at this:
You cannot get closer to any hollywood-popcorn-blockbuster-feel like with this game. Anyone here played it?
