What can i say, am a student, sch gets ruff!
sigh...I could go into a long rant on this but I'll stop here, there's alot of good games he's missed out on. That's all I'll say... Never mind I can't hold it in...the only Zelda he's beaten is Twilight Princess? He didn't beat Link to the Past or even Ocarina of Time? n00b. Didn't beat Super Mario 1, 2, or 3? n00b. At least beat 3...the best selling game of all time. Only played GTA4? FAIL. Mario Golf? who cares but whatever..not beating Metal Gear is that much of a big deal since I know many people that haven't ever been interested in the series, but it's still an epic game. Not beating Super Metroid? n00b...that's the best one in the series. Other than Castlevania SOTN I would say Super Metroid is the best 2D action adventure game of all-time. Looking back on it that's a good list because if the best game on the list was Mario Golf then it wouldn't have been worth posting.
well over 15 years old. Some games dont age that well ok. By todays standards, games like Super mario bros 3 are ancient and just a joke. While the game was good way back on the NES, does not mean that younger people should pick up these relics with ancient sprite based games. And while you laugh at him, I can do the same to you. Who the hell misses out on the Tekkens, Xenogears, the Suikodens, the star oceans, the Final Fantasies, the Metal gears and the Resident evils? Noob. Also Zelda is a good game. But once you played one of them, you pretty much played all of them. I havent touched Zelda in 6 years. After Ocarina of Time, I pretty much knew they were just leeching out the same story and experience, over and over again. And you know why Twilight Princess got away with it? Because 90% of these so called "reviewers" didnt grow up with A Link to the Past. They grew up with Windwaker.
@2.1: Only half of the games he mentioned are 15+. New generation of gamers in most cases won't get hooked by oldies. Those are well established titles, legends of gaming but not everyone who likes music will like Tchaikovsky or Chopin. It's funny when he mentioned FF Series but it's really hard to find someone who played all of them.
ummm, ok... How's life on Bizarro World?
"And while you laugh at him, I can do the same to you. Who the hell misses out on the Tekkens, Xenogears, the Suikodens, the star oceans, the Final Fantasies, the Metal gears and the Resident evils? Noob." lol you can't because I've beaten them all. There's preference and then there's total classics that pretty much take gaming to the next level. I tried to at least leave out the mature games like RE4, Metal Gear, and Bioshock because I do know people that aren't into it those games and I know people that haven't beaten Bioshock since it was released at a time where everything was an FPS and they were sick of the genre. Maybe it's because I'm 25 and my friends grew up on NES so they've beaten a Mario Game, they've beaten Link to the Past which I'll say is my favorite one and pretty much set the formula for all the ones after it. Thats stupid to say SMB3 was a joke, maybe it's not your preference, but maybe you're too young to remember how big that game was when it came out. In movie comparisons it's like you're saying Citizen Kane sucked but the Dark Knight is the greatest movie of all time. Let's take the Devil May Cry series for example..imagine him saying the DMC series sucked but at least he beat DMC2, wouldn't you be dissapointed by his statement because that was the worst one in the series? He missed out on 1 and 3...he's only beaten Twilight Princess which I'll agree is recycled, and he's only played GTA4..the most boring GTA out of 3, Vice City, and San Andreas. He's just missing out on everything...
Also, his list of unbeaten games...very eclectic.
this guy didn't beat FF7 and MGS? what a douche...how can you NOT beat those games. they got me hooked up like no other games in my entire life. wow...just...wow
My list Metroid Prime 1 - I live it... amazing game... immersive environment... one day I stopped playing and I was really far and I ended up losing my memory card anyway... I will beat this one Twilight Princess - Loved it but once again stopped playing and ended up getting a 360 and PS3... Very sad indeed GTA4 - Okay I thought to myself "Gametime... you have wasted enough of your life not playing this game just complete it already" Sadly I started playing again and my PS3 hard drive wiped (including the save file)... I was soooo close to the end... But now I can run through and get trophies too Majoras Mask - I almost didnt finish OOT after being stuck for a YEAR in the water temple... But I finished it and started playing MM and got stuck where you get the zora mask... I fail Kingdom Hearts - I got pwned by a giant demon boss thing and quit playing... I went back to finish it and cant find the game lol WHERE IS IT? Eternal Darkness - I have this game for GC and have NEVER played it Resi 1 remake - 2 scared to play it RFOM - The campaign just bores me to be honest cant think of any more I want to go back and beat now lol
well at least your list is filled with crap. only prime 1 deserves the time to be played again to beat it. that is one of my favorite games ever! look for a Wii or a Cube to play that masterpiece!
Ha, gametime, I have eternal darkness and have never played it either. I have also never played metroid prime 1 and 2, zelda 1, 2, LTTP and majora's mask - even though I own them all.
I beat most games I buy except the brutally tough ones like Devil May Cry 3 on Dante Must Die and the Contra games
Somebody lied to this guy and told him he is funny.
and this guy calls himself a gamer and writes for a gaming site? and possibly does some reviews? WoW. this is funny but at the same time depressing... most of the games he hasn't beat are considered part of the list of best games ever. 20 minutes of Zelda OOT? WTF!? i think all this was made up just for fun.
as a 15 year old,but I have played metal gear 2 but it made me sick so i ended my self torture. I really didn't get the hype, I agree with him here, I want to like it but I can't. I played gta 3, vice city and gta 4 but completed none. 3 and vice city bored me and my gta4 cd doesn't work now I might as well wait for the PC one. btw DOOM not on his list? Maybe that was one he did complete but I doubt that. DOOM was ****ing awesome. DOOM II slapped me about too much though :(
I'm not mad at him. He just loses interest in games fast. I for one have a problem with The metroid Prime Series. I beat Metroid Prime 1 and Three, but that Got damn Metroid Prime two!!!!! I got as far as getting the last dark key to open the last level. It was bad enough you had to go between the dark and the light worlds to prepare for the fight, but to also find the keys, Come on! I just stopped playing it after that.
I don't understand why anyone would diss on anyone for not beating or playing a game. Most of this guys list seems comprised of games that he thinks he has to play to be a gamer. There are so many people that play games, that the notion of being a moron or "not a gamer" if you haven't played them all is dumb. I know a lot of people here haven't played The Darkness. Well you all are aren't real gamers then. There you see how easy that was.
:O!!! never beat super metroid :O that was the best game EVER fair enough to him im 18 and only recently i beat the game took me 14 long years lol cuz i didnt know where to go. good list i thought and super metroid is personally my most favourite game ever made :D
Oblivion - monsters scaling=crap, story was boring as hell Silent Hill 4 - couldnt get into it, although after playing the crap that was SH5 i think ill give it another whirl. Dragon Quest 8 - Took too long and then PS3 came out. Zone of the enders 2 - lost interest
he forgot to mention contra, of all the series I beat super C and alien wars that was hard. wish a new version would come to ps3 in the format like socom,call of duty 3D enviroment that would be awsome
