Over the last few years, retro gaming has seen a resurgence in popularity. Nostalgia is a funny thing though and sometimes our memories make us think certain titles were more fun and better looking than they actually are today.
I was playing Zombies Ate My Neighbours the other day. Man is that game awesome.
I played it aswell. They need to bring it to PSN with online Zombies Ate My Neighbours
That game is so fun. Two games I decided to play recently were Shining Force II and Phantasy Star II on the Genesis. There are a lot of underrated RPGs on that system, since everyone focused on the SNES for RPGs.
Those two series are my favorite from sega. to this day i have not beaten shining in the darkness. I got lost in a dungeon a loooong time ago and just said F it...and moved on to shining force and other shining games. Phantasy star II...the death of Nei (spolier) was a shocker the first time i ever played the game. i tried and tried to keep her alive on subsequent playthroughs and no matter if she survived the fight....she still died. Another good RPG series on genesis (sega cd) is Lunar. it has been remastered for other platforms but the sega cd is the original that i still have to this day. Y's on the turbografx was also a well received action/adventure/rpg series. Dragon Slayer is another good turbo AARPG
True. I agree. It's pretty awesome. Have you played the HD remake? It's definitely worth your time. The online multiplayer works flawlessly.
The visuals and music - especially the music - of Final Fantasy VI have held up extremely well. What an amazing game.
I second that. Final Fantasy 6 is a must. There is no doubt that it is the best in the series. Also, another retro game I would strongly recommend is Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. I think the gameplay still holds up.
there is no "best" in the series it's all about opinions... ( some insano i knew liked XIII the best... that was just awful )
Personally, it doesn't bother me if someone calls any of the games "the best." People have the right to feel that way, and it can start some pretty interesting conversation, too, if everyone remains calm.
I think it's by far the best in the series. I'd love to see some sort of a remake.
The resurgance in popularity is in part due to the fact that you can either play a shooter/action game, or you can play a retro game, or you can play no game.
There's other genres out there. I think you're being a little overly cynical.
Plus, they might also be popular simply because many of them are still fun to play.
Another great game would be Super Castlevania 4 for the SNES. Demon's Crest is another amazing over looked Gem for the SNES.
what an awful list. TLoZ: A Link to the Past Sonic games on Sega Genesis (not including Sonic 3D) Ecco the Dolphin Comic Zone Streets of Rage (the whole trilogy) Victorman
Soulblazer for the SNES was good.
16-bit is my happy place...
