This is exactly what I meant. I had been meaning to do something like this for a while. As for your Final Fantasy pick, don't worry about FFVII. Some people would argue (mainly me) that Cloud/Aerith was never really a relationship. I'm guessing a lot more people would direct you to FFVIII, but I'd go over to FFVI. The lost relationship between Locke and Rachel was so strong, that he spends most of the game compensating for it.


As for some other picks (sorry I'm allowing myself a long comment since it's the theme I suggested):

Wild Arms 2 had a pretty awesome romance going on. Especially since the main love interest isn't a protagonist.

Final Fantasy Tactics' manipulative relationship between Delita and the Princess is probably tragic enough for you. Probably.


That's probably all I have. See? That's why I made you do the list!

Can't remember the games I had for Christmas... I do remember getting Yoshi's Island one year. I didn't even want it, but my parents bought it nonetheless. I received a remote car race track the same year. By the time my father gave up and started installing the track, I was up to world 3-8.

Hesitation... Do I vote for one of my favorite games in Super Mario RPG? Or do I vote for my favorite Mario Party in an attempt to shove it in people's faces yelling that it's the best and no one can argue that? Decisions decisions.


In any case, the N64? Not a console? WHAAAAAT?

As for the listener question, it's funny Alex mentioned my Spyro talk to someone because, in the end, my view is that Spyro is a very average game, but does fit the mascot criteria for the youth of the time. It kind of bridges your whole conversation. People followed their affinities with the mascots more than they followed their consoles. Even now, Sony Fanboys are probably the less prominent group. Those who are aren't Crash and Spyro fans, they're Ratchet, Kratos and Devil May Cry fans.

Some pretty cool levels in there. I completely agree on Sherbet Land. That is probably one of my favorite tracks in the Mario Kart series. As for Shadows of the Empire, it made me remember a part of my childhood I forgot. I did play a Star Wars game as a kid. Huh.

Went back to episode 84 (http://1morecastle.com/2014/04/84-refill-machine-fresh-bear/) and the first ever Crazy Game Ideas was indeed Jason, but it was NOT the Dennis Hopper simulator. It was the multiplayer collectable card game of SPOONBATS! Where two factions (Spoons and Bats) battle it out in a post-apocalyptic world.


It also reminded me to laugh at Bailey if he ever needs to put his kid on a leech.

@Aggro Sky Pretty much my opinion except the fact that SMB was the first game I played. While Mario 3 and World are better, like I said, I'd rather play SMB than maybe 3/4 of the flash/indie games I've played so far. I'd rather speedrun SMB than play Super Meat Boy.

I completely agree with its position and you assessment. I haven't played enough hack n' slash games, but I do believe, from memory, that DMC is better. But, seeing how many games came after it, play at least one.

That is awesomely cute. You could go for a Game Boy SP though. The backlight helps a lot, the screen is bigger and it plays all games.


I also had Pokémon Blue for the long trips as a kid. However, I personally admit how much I wanted to have Pokémon Red, the clearly superior version.

@Aggro Sky I'd have to add that Sega has the right idea on this. Those Steam collections are all someone with a lack of space for physical media needs.

@Aggro Sky On a serious note, as much as I agree that Nintendo is behind on all of these concepts (no GBA on the 3DS, really?). There's a serious lack of logic on all consoles about the digital content available. Nintendo's case is the worse, but PSN also has some sequels as stand-alones and other weird choices. Then there's the question of remakes and keeping their options open. I agree wholeheartedly that Nintendo is the worse at managing its virtual content, but virtual content in general should be easier to get to avoir piracy. Same thing goes with prices, in my opinion. If you can get the  Assassin's Creed trilogy for 15$, there's no reason why I have to pay 10 bucks for an N64 game I already bought 5 times.
