This is a humorous, retro oriented countdown of the ten best video games of all time.
Link to the Past better than Super Metroid? Hardly.
Sorry man, I gotta join the chorus of disagrees here, but then, that's also just my opinion. What I don't buy is putting FF6 before Castlevania and Metroid. @Below: And I still don't think Castlevania or Metroid as a series are better than Final Fantasy as a series.
The lists says they only chose one game from each franchise. So Super Metroid and Castlevania SOTN are ahead of FF3.
Thank goodness that this list wasn't done by some PSX era idiot. I agree with every game on that list. I would switch SMB with SMB3 or SMBW on Snes. I think Mario 64 should have been 1st. I would remove Castlevania and move that to top 11.
All of them are among the top games of all time, even if this is a retro list. Super Mario Bros. 3 should have been number 1 in my opinion. How in the world can it not be? :) here is their breakdown for non readers: 10.) Contra (NES) 9.) Pac-man (arcade) 8.)Mega Man 2 (NES) 7.) Secret of Mana (SNES) 6.) Final Fantasy 3 (USA) 5.) Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1) 4.) Super Metroid (SNES) 3.) Chrono Trigger (SNES) 2.) Super Mario Bros. 1 (NES) 1.) Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past (SNES)
Ocarina > Link to the psat
Actually, I preferred Link to the Past to Ocarina, too. But then I'm a hardcore SNES fanboy.
Oh Jesus, another Old Wizard article. I'm scared to click on it. Before I read it, let me guess - very Nintendo-based, nothing even remotely resembling a Sega title, because Sega is the DEVIL and all of their consoles are worse than the VIRTUAL BOY. Right? I wonder if the author at least apologized to grammar before he PUNCHED IT IN THE FACE with this article.
Seriously? Based upon your brilliant "punched it in the face" comment, I decided to go back through your post history, and found pages upon pages of non-bias, reason and insight. Please refrain from this sort of behavior in the future.
All I had to do was look at the front page of his blog and that was enough for me. I remember this guy put out some crap list for worst game consoles. It was just him venting his hate for Sega. His logic was totally off base and he bashed several consoles for no reason other than his hate. I didn't even bother reading this blog. Was one of the worst examples of fanboy blogging that I have read, and that is saying a lot. I'm just going to have to be more careful and check who submitted the article before I click it.
I whole heartedly agree. This appears to be one of the most biased sites I've ever seen. This list does not reflect the 10 best of all time by a long shot.
i'm all about the future man.
What a stupid, stupid comment.
I do not aprove of this messege.
He got the Contra code wrong.
I'm not sure if that code as written on this blog is correct. "Up, down, up, down, left, right, left, right, A, B, A, B, Start." is incorrect!!! I'm pretty sure its "UP,UP,DOWN,DOWN,LEFT,RIG HT,LEFT,RIGHT, B,A, Start." for single player. "UP,UP,DOWN,DOWN,LEFT,RIG HT,LEFT,RIGHT, B,A,select, Start." for 2 players Yeah I'm 99% sure I'm right and the writer of this blog is an idiot.
4 the Record I don't think anyone can beat contra without dying! 007-373-5963 Mike Tyson Punch Out password! I remember passwords like the back of my head. Good list choice, I wish they added River City Ransom tho! Also i luv Super Metroid ending still one of the Best Breathtaking events in VideoGame History! also People 4 got about Landstalker from Sega Genesis, but Woot now I can play it on my Virtual Wii.
#1 Old-Skool game for me is Secret of Evermore for the SNES. I wonder how good its ratings were... Wasn't mine anyway. Also Super Mario RPG was pretty good. Hell, I think all Squaresoft SNES games were the best. Oh and Big Sky Trooper! =O Ok, not really. It's been atleast 10 years that I've had Big Sky Trooper, and I still cant figure out what the hell I'm supposed to do. There I go getting off topic again, silly me.
lol, sh1t list. OoT or Halo 1 aren't even on it. Try again.
Jeez, Oldwizard, I thought we got rid of you and your supreme hard-on for ANYTHING Nintendo related.
Phew! I was getting worried that we wouldn't have a top 10 games this week.
