    I started playing The Evil Within, not really into it to be honest. The controls feel super clunky and non-responsive. I've gotten blown up several times already trying to disarm traps when my character moves too far forward because I was too far away prior to clicking to move forward. There's just so much acceleration on everything. The story is very meh so far. Nothing is explained much at all and talking is so minimum that it scares you when your character says something because it was so unexpected. Meh

    Monster Hunter isn't MMO style, you can just party up with people so long as you are both at the same point in the story to do certain missions, or you can just casually hunt with a party, or you can do what I do and fly solo. It's still enjoyable, and despite it being heavily centred around crafting, it's a pretty enjoyable cycle or hunting a monster > getting their mats > crafting sweet armour and weapons you want > hunt stronger monsters > repeat.

    SC2 and Diablo2. Some things never change... other than my declining patience for getting into new games. :lol:

    I've been getting into A Link to the Past lately. I tried it once or twice when I was more into emulators, but now that I have a legit copy, makes sense to do a more serious attempt to finish it.

    I've also been realizing that there's some value in the SNES mini, just in the sense that there's some games in there that would be waaaaaaaaay too much to try to get a real copy of for the original system, just because people have jacked the prices up to an extreme. All the titles I want for that system go for stupid prices - $70 CAD and up. I almost never pay that much for a new game, let alone one that's almost as old as I am.

    Been eatin' retics and alerting every guard in sight on Metal Gear Solid 3. Finally getting the whole aiming/shooting with square thing down, the 2004 controls felt pretty alien at first but they feel better the more i play. Fun game, really glad i scooped the MGS legacy HD collection for like 25 bucks a few months ago after getting into TPP.

    Other than that still gunnin' down them god damn O'driscolls! Robbin' and Killin'!!

    A Link To The Past is 'still' awesome. I played the hell out if it back then and I still rate it as one of the best SNES games as well as among the top Zelda games. I've yet to replay it on my SNES mini, but I remembered playing it a few years ago and remembering how immersive it was for it's time. I can still remember everything on the game right now. :lol:

    It's no coincidence that everyone's favorite, most-remembered games seem to be the ones they played when they were a little kid with a super-impressionable mind!! Hence: OoT is my favorite since that was the first I played :D:D:D

    My parents didn't let me play videogames until I was in middle school or so. I think that was a good move. Almost everything I know about science, etc seems to be what I learned before I got an N64. :X

    got underworld ascendant after waiting years for it to hit steam for non beta backers.
    i'm a sucker for systems based gameplay like dark messiah/dishonored 1 and 2 so this should be hella fun for me

    For the most part, yes that rings true. Though while I rate ALTTP highly, I still think Majora's Mask is the best Zelda game. I'm also not afraid to dump crap on some of my fond favorites like I did with Secret of Mana earlier in this thread. I'm sort of still planning to do that with Final Fantasy VI some time soon. :evil:

    Speaking of Zelda, I'm one of the guys who think once you've played one game, you've played them all. I breezed through Ocarina because of ALTTP and the original NES. For every subsequent game, the mechanics, aesthetics get better and the puzzles get more inventive and clever but the fundamental gameplay remains the same that it's hard to rate them against each other because they're more or less remakes. Aside from the terrible ones like Skyward Sword and Spirit Tracks, you can pick a favorite and it really doesn't matter all too much. There's a Zelda game for every generation.

    I do like it when Nintendo deviates for a more unique feel (sans Spirit Tracks). Wind Waker has that proto BOTW vast hugeness to it. Majora's Mask was a great change of pace after what felt like 'larger' ALTTP in Ocarina, which in turn was just a larger Zelda 1. And for all the crap it gets, I still like Zelda 2 a lot not just a successful deviation from the form but a solid game overall.

    Link to the past will always be a favourote gaming experience of mine. But I’d say beath of the wild was a better game. I’d say probably top 5 all time for me.

    Spirit tracks was a very fun Zelda game in its own right. It just wasn’t a “core” game in the sense that it felt like the bigger games. Still a good Zelda. And the gameboy Zelda DX was very difficult in parts, was no slouch in the “feels like a real game” department.

    Zelda: Link's Awakening is one that gets left off lists cause people aren't aware of it, but tends to be rated extremely high on any list done by someone that's played it. Especially if they ever repeatedly robbed the shopkeeper.

    I played through most of it on an emulator when I was in middle/high school or something, and I got stuck on the bird dungeon and started some other game and never came back to it. It was more complex and interesting than most of the earlier ones. I liked that you could equip two items instead of just having one "special item" slot. It felt more fluid than LTTP, partly because of this. (I'm talking the GBC version, I dunno if the 'original' played any differently).

    This is kind of unfair given that technology between the two are worlds apart.
