Nights: Into The Abyss

Nights: Into Dreams sequel Nights: Journey of Dreams and the unholy abyss it sank into. Oh Sega, Sega, Sega! I share my thoughts about the current franchise and how its potential sank like the Titanic. (Dev, NiGHTS Into Dreams, NiGHTS Into Dreams HD, Nights: Journey of Dreams, Retro, Sega, Wii)

I bought a Sega Saturn just to play the original Nights.

And I thought I was the only one to do that as well. Thanks for enjoying my piece on Nights. I really love the original so I'm just hoping we get a new entry into the franchise for next-gen. Do you think there will be another game?

God I hope so! But you never know with Sega. They'd probably make it a mobile title.

I bought the Nights controller first, and then the saturn!

I just bought Nights on steam the other day for $2.50.

That seems to be the problem with SEGA, they never handle their IP's and characters properly, they could breathe life into so many great IP's....I would love to see a new or reboot of Biohazard Battle, Congo Bongo, Nights, Panzer Dragoon, Jet set radio, Shenmue, Grandia, Ecco, Mr.Bones, Shinobi, Ristar, virtual on was one of my favorites...to play with the twin sticks was frantic.

I bought the original Nights on release day and still have the pillow case that came as a bonus for doing so. It was the last game to even broach the possibility of being a true "Mario killer" (and to think the Mario it was up against was Mario 64...). The sequel is a bit of a downer but I did play through it, the game does have some decent qualities(I think the Guardian Heroes "sequel" on the GBA was actually a bigger travesty). @TheRacingX don't forget Bug and Clockwork Knight, and Eternal Champions, too... At least the new Virtua Fighter titles have been good.

I did not catch the promo with the pillow case unfortunately. Lol. Yes the Virtua Fighters games are pretty good still. I have Virtua Fighter 4 on xbox 360.

I played the original NiGHTS and its sequel, and I still think that NiGHTS doesn't deserve the praise it gets. Even the original game, that gets so much praise, is not a bad game, but it's not as great as people say it is.
QThornton  +   147d ago
I can respect that. Around the time the original Nights game came out, there wasn't another game that I knew about that was like that. It was completely different and I was probably in middle school when I got that game. I figure if people have first played it less than 5 - 8 years ago, they probably would not like it much.
