I need to beef up my 360 RPG library with this one, Nobuo Uematsu sountrack can't hurt. A very well written review!

Well, I guess I'll tackle symphony of the night first, but that's another gem on the list for the GBA. Seeing your twitter, I had a feeling it was going to end up here. Nice review!

Of all the NES baseball games, this one doesn't ring a bell and it seems like it should. I think we have similar taste in sports game so I'll definitely be on the lookout for it!

There's not a lot to say about Super Metroid that hasn't already been said. You still managed to keep it interesting, well done.

That cartoon sounds creepy, I guess it is an 80's cartoon. Nice review. I don't know much about the spectrum, but I'm always happy to see it pop up on RAGGD.

The charisma of all these characters, the possibility of playing multiple players, the level design. Even if you reviewed Doki Doki Panic, I think it deserves to be here.

I never got into Pikmin, maybe I should. You sure made me feel like it. And, about the deep philosophical analysis of the game, are you related to Eric Bailey per chance?

I played a couple of Fire Emblem games on the GBA before this one and, wow, am I never going back! This game was spot on, with some moments being really shocking. Nice review and nice choice!

I was a Playstation kid and Crash was my first game on it (I had a SNES before of course). Crash isn't a masterpiece in my opinion, but it is a great game. They kept it simple while moving platformers to 3D. Sometimes I wonder what would've happened if we kept that route instead of the collect-a-thon route. Well, lately I found out: Super Mario 3D Land happened.

That was a pretty good review. Fez is the kind of game I enjoyed moderately, but when I look back on it, I seem to like it even more.

Like many below me, I need to give Max Payne a try. Though, putting Max Payne 3 in RAGGD and GTA V in RABGD, this, THIS, is what these to days are all about.

If I had a nickel for every Dogfight simulator I played. Boy oh boy, would I be poor. You PC gamers are truly fascinating people. I did come across this game on the Xbox multiple times. It's cheap, I might get it.

Shovel Knight... When I can decide what platform to buy it on, I'll give it a try. You're definitely not the only one to love it and I think the points you brought were shared by many people. Good job.

Tried the Ys series for the first time last year and I loved it. I remember checking out what the original looked like and being mostly impressed. This game definitely deserves its place on here.

I remember trying out Driver on the PS1. I think I put more time into Driver 2, though, as I ended up owning it. Driving around, causing damage and ruckus everywhere... Memories. Nice job on the review.

That Double Dragon game looks fairly mediocre. I bet if I was a fan of Double Dragon, I'd think it was terrible.

Thanks for mentioning the results of our podcast by the way!

I need to pick up the GBA version then. I'm hoping it'll be enough to make me think about something else than how you rank Turtles in Time below Hyperstone Heist. :P


Anyway, Donatello was my favorite turtle as a kid. Fortunately, I don't follow these guys anymore, so my grief isn't too bad.

Geez, we should start some kind of Persona guide for newcomers. :P
I'm genuinely happy that we both played our first Persona game and ended up on RAGGD. Even though I played Persona 3, most of points I highlighted are in here. I guess I'm gonna have to play P4G sooner than I thought.

@daswhalebeard I put 100 hours in the first playthrough and wanted to keep playing while I wrote the review, so I started with the female protagonist and I'm past the halfway mark. :P It is pretty great. Can't wait to play P4G, now.

@JoshuaCaleb75 Near perfect is the right word. The SNES is what it is because Nintendo decided to make 3 completely amazing and out of this world experiences in three completely different styles. 


I'll give Yoshi's Island 3 flaws: The mole control, Poochie and MAYBE auto-scrolling stages. That's it. Everything else is perfect. AND THE BOSS FIGHTS! Best boss fight lineup in platformers EVER and one of the best final boss of all time.


If you asked me to write a book on a single game, Yoshi's Island would be it.

The more I think about this showdown, the more it reminds me of the time I brought a small box of donut holes (Timbits in metric) to the office thinking I was gonna make people happy, but when I arrived, somebody had already brought 2 dozens of donuts... Poor @NintendoLegend. I know your pain and humiliation. Except, you know, donut holes are actually good.

I don't know why, but I almost didn't expect this to be so fleshed out on the first chapter.


Just reading this spans soooooo many ideas with every character you created (adapted?). I guess it shows how well you presented them. Oh and :
1. This is exactly how I remember the GMZ offices. Thinking about it makes my shins hurt.

2. We need to do a @ArcadeErrorWin appreciation day some day. He is a wizard.

Welcome back! While I'm far from the fighting game fan or the marvel fan, there's something special about these Capcom/Marvel games. They just look and feel like good games, no matter if you're a fan or not. I have awesome memories of Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 in the arcade. One of the few games I have a fond arcade memory of.
