The top ten ways to tell if you suck at video games.
that was funny. except the pokemon barbs.
pokemon is the best hand held game ever made mario is best on nintendo consoles but pokemon is so much fun i dont know y but it just is their making pokemon platinum which is supposed 2 be way more advanced hand held game i dont think ill live to see the day where they run out of colors for pokemon * i dont play it anymore lets get that straight it was good wen i was 10 but online shooters took me over after that im a ps3 man now :)
for NOT making a Pokemon MMORPG!!! >_<
with short "intention" spans. *from the article* What SORT of intentions do those children have? >_<
You know, I don't recall if old-wizard has ever written anything other than a list.
my girlfriends ALWAYS playing pokemon. Hahha.
Why the hell does old wizard keep rehashing their same old damn lists? I swear to God, I've seen this exact same article with a different name a month ago.
I love pokemon why would they make fun of it. It was the first game I ever played! I take all things pokemon very seriously and hate when people make fun of it.
i can't believe that game is still defended by people (errr....kids). but yeah, this list sucks.
waht a bunch of f-ing bullcrap. I still play pokemon and im 18. I played it when i first came out and i still play them.
Guys, don't be such elitists. Gaming elitism is so damn ridiculous I don't even want to finish this phra Pokemon was a great game. When you grow up, you don't care if it's Pokemon anymore. It's just funny. Learn to enjoy these things and don't go all "I play MATURE games for MATURE alpha-male gamers".
@Hixon4Life No, but you must be, or at least close to that age. Only someone who is very young would have this macho "I'm cool and mature, look at me" attitude about them. Any real man would admit playing and loving the game back then, and even still loving it now. Timesplitters said it pretty well, just play what is fun and good, who cares if might be child oriented. I mean, if we took that mentality, then you will have to discount games like Ratchet and Clank, LittleBigPlanet, Jak and Daxter, etc. and we wouldn't be appreciating Pixar/Dreamworks(some disney films) 3d animation. Quit being a douche and thinking that you're cooler than everyone else because you think you're more mature (you're not by the way), and learn to have fun and still love the things in your childhood that made you happy, and not avoid/talk badly about them just because you feel some misplaced sense of obligation to be more "mature.
Its still really popular with the kids, but it is far from my tastes. My Neice has everyone of them for every system, not because she plays them, but because of the name Pokemon.
i could have thought of better reasons than that.
i actually thought mario 2 was hard. does that mean i suck at video games?
what a retarded article. it seems like someone stopped playing video games in 1994.
whats wrong with that?
i've gotta stop clicking on these lists. pokemon was a great series. it was way better than crappy RPGs people are constantly propping up (*cough* FF7).
oh, and before the 10 yr olds come out to defend it, FF7 is overrated...and yes, i dont care what anyone says. pokemon was about 100X better, and it SOLD MORE Copies. bottom line. its the best selling game ever that wasn't packaged with a console. and its the best rpg ever made.
i dont even feel like i have to respond to this nonsense.
pokemon better than FF7??????? i have to stop visiting n4g...
that was retarded.
you think misty is hotter than tifa.
Ok, Pokemon was great and all, honestly i still enjoy playing it everyone once in a while, but in no way is it better than FF7.
Pokemon? Are you serious? Maybe cause I was 18 the time Pokemon came out that it didn't appeal to me but to say that the Pokemon series out sold the Final Fantasy series is pure garbage. Pokemon is an RPG with training wheels. I would love to see Pinkachu fight Emrald weapon.
couldnt agree with meatnormous any more if i wanted to.
^^^ Pokemon is 100x times better and sold more copies. That's cos its got like 20 more games in the franchise...
FF1 was on the Nes, PSP, PS1 and GB advance FF2 was on the Nes, PSP, PS1 and GB Advance FF3 was on the Nes (Japan) and Ds FF4 was on The Snes, Ps1, GB Advance and DS FF5 was on the Snes, PS1 and GB Advance FF6 was on the Snes, Ps1 and GB Advance FF7 was on the PS1 and PC FF8 was on the PS1 and PC FF9 was Ps1 FFX was Ps2 FFXI was Ps2, 360 and PC FF XII was on the PS2 FF Tactics was on the Ps1, PSP and GB Advance FF Crisis Core was on the PSP There where numerous FF Legends for the Gameboy as well, I just can't remember what they were. I also know there were Wonder Swan versions released that I didn't include. No way in hell did the Pokemon series out Sell the FF series.
Why is that?
Shouldn't this list have been published in a gaming magazine like twenty years ago? Could've at least a mentioned a few modern things.
Old-Wizard, they are the retro gaming site, and pretty much hate 99% of the modern games.
lol Pokemon Diamond and Pearl was one of my favorite games in the last couple of years. It's just awesome. If you think you need to be a kid to enjoy pokemon games your harshly mislead.
THANK YOU! This is how the cycle goes. You are a kid and you LOVE pokemom. You are getting a little older still love pokemon but are too immature to been seen playing it because it's not "cool" anymore. Then you realise WHO CARES??!?!?!? It's fun so you play it. Although some people never get over this. Sucks for them.
Do you hide the fact that you play pokemon from friends and family? I couldn't imagine tellin my buddies that I can't play KZ2 cause I am busy trying to catch them all. I am 29 yrs old and it just wouldn't fly at my age.
I had a hard time beating Mario 2 Do I suck?
You sure do.
NO, you are only a disgrace to us all "real gamers"
all things pokemon and pokemon-related need to die very painful deaths, get resurrected, rinse repeat. and i don't care how many disagrees i get by saying that, thats how much i truly hate pokemon as a game franchise, whatever. It's like the dumbest thing in existence.
Yeah, and girls are icky too.
Yeah and I'm sure all of the girls at his elementary school have "cooties" too. Dumb Douche.
Good post Sage! I give you an agree, I HATE, I repeat I H-A-T-E digimon, Pokemon, any other kind of fuc*ing retarded ass japanese character ending in 'mon' I hate anime, I hate their idiotic cartoon porn. No offense but other than electronics, the people, their cars, and Capcom games, I'm pretty sure I hate pretty much everything from the Asian continent.
First of all, there is nothing wrong with pokemon, but obviously you are too insecure to admit that. I bet you play pokemon all day but won't admit it. Second anime is AMAZING. The stories and the action that can happen in anime is above and beyond so many live action movies, because they are fantasy so anything can happen, that makes it great. Soo.... are you racist or what? What's wrong with Japan?
Wow got a little bit of rage there bud? Need to sit down? Maybe take a chill pill? Want a soda big guy? Hmmmmmmmm? I noticed your getting a little too into your hatred there. I think a lot of people, for and against, misunderstand the Japanese... a lot! They have been, as a country, a certain way for over a couple thousand years and when they put in elements of the west there; the results are sure to raise more then a few eyebrows (as they have been doing for quite a while now). Even though their ways can be a bit strange; they are people and because of that, we should show them equal respect. That's nice that you "hate, hate, hate" those games but just remember that you have to put into perspective that the original two Pokemon games actually saved the original Gameboy in Japan (and also in the USA as well). As for anime, the aforementioned Pokemon, and Digimon; you could just ignore it (like anything else that doesn't strike your fancy... just don't bother paying attention to it).
Lol Zangief was pretty slow, lmao that brings back laughs. I also always laughed at Johnny Cage and Sonya. Lol you have all these like crazy magic people and two normal humans who only know Karate lol.
"10 ways to tell if your website is a failure"
10. What are you talking about...Super Mario Bros. 2 was, like, the hardest damn Mario game around...that is, if you knew what was the TRUE SMB2. Still, the US SMB2 was more challenging than they are putting on. 9. Was always able to TKO him. 8. I one time let the time run out on purpose to see if there was a different cinematic that happened. Wasn't that interesting, and it just let you try again without any weird stuff happening. 7. I usually used Chun Li, who could kick the living crap out of him. I can't remember if I had any problem beating him with Chun Li (unless it was on the highest difficulty). 6. There's also a double shot there, too. 5. Most people who didn't find this warp zone probably found the Minus World instead. 4. Johnny Cage in MK2 was different. 3. There is a way out: the tunnel (but the dumbass goes right back into the maze through the other side) 2. There's a few legit ways the Red Shell could miss (some other hazard claimed your target before the shell gets to the target). Oh, and the line "If you’re racing your buddy who is in first place, he starts to quiver when you get a red shell" misinforms. It doesn't seek out the person in first place (unless you're doing a one on one battle or race), but the closest target it can find (if the closest person IS in first, though, then it works out). 1. Bet OW did all of the others to make the Pokemon bashing seem legit. I do own Sapphire, and it's one of the most involving RPG games around. It becomes a challenge to find everything in the game, and some strategy to know which Pokemon you should take into a gym battle (and what levels each of those should be at), and when you should deploy each one. Not to mention that money is not easy to come by. There are so many levels that I disagree with this one. Playing Pokemon makes you more of a gamer, I think.
I actually always used Johnny Cage in the original Mortal Kombat. Know why? The split and groin hit, that's why.
LMAO @ #2 I suppose i suck too.
Each to your own.
#1. You're not Swedish that in itself means u suck at games.
bu.. bu.. but i like mes a pikachu and charizardz
"You suck even more at video games if you actually used Johnny Cage." Oh no you did-int! I'll destroy you with Johnny Cage! bring it on biatch!! I'll ummm.. shadow kick your ass out of the damn screen! LOL! Really, I will...
But, they both are overrated. Chrono Trigger in my opinion, is the best RPG ever made, closely followed by Legend Of Zelda: A link to the past.
CT was the best Square game ever made. It was very deep for a Snes game. FF7 is not my fav by a long shot, FF6 still is my favorite.
11 - You claim Sf4 is hard because you cant beat Seth. 12 - You cant pull of a Hadoo ken on a 360 controller.
Your only frame of reference is games from 20 years ago!
In my opinion (and I know I'll get slack from FF7 lovers etc) I think the best rpg ever is FF8.
I loved FF8, But 6 is my favorite. It took awhile for me to like the game but I always finish a FF game no matter how much I dislike it. FF8 is my second favorite.
be old wizard
I think Chrono Cross is the best rpg.
They should change the title to How to tell if you suck at video games from the 80's and early 90's.
How is that making you suck at video games? You simple want more challenge by taking him out with the whip. The axe is so cheap, you can kill him in 5 seconds. The axe is for noobs. I killed the bat with the whip, and I did not even lose the half energy bar. This guy is a joke.
Who knew Pokemon had so many fanboys. I guess cause I have pubes I would have never figured it out......
POKEMON = NINTENDO-Wii = Kiddie crap
I don't see why pokemon is on that list. Especially at #1. The pokemon games are some of my favorite! As a matter of fact, Pokemon Blue on the GBC was the first video game i owned. Come on, who hasn't played at least one pokemon game?
come on guys...misty is pretty hawt XD
"2. You miss with a red shell in Super Mario Kart" thats funny and mario 2, i dont think is easy as he makes it out to be.
