@Lionel Hutz Gradius III for SNES was amazing

@Torpedo_Vegas @SaintMarty I've heard nothing but great things for that series but I just can't get into them for the most part



this sounds dumb but I hate RPGs because for the most part there's no way to avoid getting hit, for some reason that bothers me.  There should always be a way to avoid getting hit by things, the whole turn based fighting I'm not big on.  I like Earthbound because it's wacky, Super Mario RPG has a lot of platforming elements to it and Secret of Mana is like a hybrid action/RPG kinda thing, almost plays like a Zelda game with more emphasis on magic

@Lionel Hutz @SaintMarty I would play Secret of Mana with my buddy, I'd just always be the little midget guy and use magic to blow everything up

I will also say this about the SNES



I HATE RPGs, I never ever play them, but this system has the 3 that I have ever actually enjoyed.  Super Mario RPG, Secret of Mana, and Earthbound.  Of course they all had little quirks that I loved about them


I remember everybody freaking out over Mario in an RPG but man did they nail it.  Also fuck Square for not letting Nintendo use Geno for any other games

let us never forget the SNES's crowning achievement:



Spider-Man and Venom Maximum Carnage.  Perhaps the only good game LJN has ever made

@Lionel Hutz @SaintMarty just download the mario paint composer program or whatever it's called.  People made a composer program based on mario paint that adds in more musical stuff so you can do more with it

@Dapper Dad Man Earthworm Jim was an amazing game, the 2nd one was great too.  Unfortunately the switch to 3d absolutely killed the franchise, I loved how bizarre it was

@Lionel Hutz @SaintMarty look at those games, even now they're still beautiful.  Plus it was solid throwback platforming at its finest



I think that's what I hate most about games now.  You really don't see a great platforming game anymore.  It's kinda sad

@KONP @SaintMarty @Lionel Hutz I do like the Genesis, they have a few solid games that you couldn't get anywhere else but yeah the SNES blew it out of the water.  Off the top of my head pretty much every game that was on both systems was much better on SNES.  The biggest exception being Mortal Kombat because they allowed blood and at that time Nintendo still had their strict censor policies

@KONP @Zoltan_(Birdman) I'll admit I owned ET for Atari when I was a wee little Marty.  It sucked but yeah a lot of games back then did.  The biggest problem is they marketed the shit out of it and it completely bombed.  It gets so much (deserved) hate because the massive failure of that one game nearly destroyed the entire video game industry until Nintendo saved it

@Lionel Hutz on the SNES I also loved the first two DKC games (3 was ok) and I loved Mario World 2.  It was different but it was amazing

@KONP @SaintMarty those last 3 NES games were pretty meh, well at least 5 and 6.  4 was still a really good game actually

@KONP @SaintMarty it made the special weapons pointless because a charged shot pretty much did the same damage as the boss's weakness weapon


plus you'd hear the annoying sound effect of charging over the music and the MM games are legendary for their soundtracks

@KONP also a larger Quickman that does insane damage if he touches you.  Shit

@KONP @SaintMarty common consensus seems to be 2 and 3 were the best, I can do either way because they're both great



redoing the bosses from 2 was what made 3 so hard on a buster-only run.  Woodman redone was probably the hardest boss in the entire series

@Lionel Hutz @SaintMarty @KONP if I recall I think Mike had times where he was okay.  He had decent range, slightly less than Leo 


Don was the best because he had range and did the most damage.  If you lost him you were pretty much fucked

@KONP @SaintMarty I absolutely love the entire series.  MM2 is probably my favorite video game ever


I've gone back and tried to beat them all without using any of the special weapons except the one or two bosses per game that you were required to.  I've beaten 1-9 without special weapons, started working on 10 but stopped for some reason



if you're not using special weapons 1,3, and 7 are ridiculous at times

also I never got why people thought the mega man games were insanely hard, once you figure out what weapons work best against each boss it becomes remarkably easier.  Also the few tough spots in each game once you play a few times you can get through easily

@KONP @Lionel Hutz @SaintMarty the water level was hard until you figured out the path to take



also you're going to take damage, the key is to limit it (or just use the turtles you don't give a shit about, if I remember correctly Raph was pretty much useless in this game)
