Previous Entry Things I've learned from battling the backlog.... May. 8th, 2009 @ 03:25 pm Next Entry
-Don't buy the sequel if you have a game from that series unplayed, you might end up with a whole series you don't like!

-I don't like strategy unless it's action strategy like Darwinia! I can't even get into Age of Mythology and that has monsters and magic.... I'm still going to give Japanese strategy games a chance though!

-Cheating can make a bad game actually enjoyable!

-The first King's Quest games remind me of Zork, they are both about getting treasure while avoiding enemies that appear at random...

-I just can't get into Ultima..

-Sonic Labyrinth is probably the worst Sonic game ever... Ever worst than Sonic 3D Blast!

-Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD are tied as the best Sonic games... Sonic CD would be the first if I didn't hate the UFO stages so much!

-Making a CD backup of disquette games is a great idea since my PC no longer has a disquette reader.... But the CD doesn't work... And some seem to be rare enough that I can't get them... *cough* elsewhere... Damn!

-If the game is old and not well known... it's for a reason!

-It's odd how I don't really like Doom or the "proto-Dooms" (Catacomb, 3D Hovertank, etc...) But I love the Doom mod Action Doom and Action Doom 2: Urban Brawl!

I have Ultima Collection, it has all up to Ultima 7.
The earlier ones are so harsh the first enemies kill you and the older ones seem to complex for someone bred on JRPGs...

I would recommend giving Ultima 6 a try, and also Ultima 7. You really don't need to know any backstory to play them. #7 was my favorite.

I'd also recommend Ultima Words: Savage Empire, which has the same interface as Ultima 6, but despite the name is really unrelated to the Ultima story.

I don't remember seeing that last one in the collection, but I'll give those another go!

I only have my Sonic Mega Collection (and my memories) to go by . . . but yeah, I hated Sonic Labyrinth, too.

(I always liked Sonic 3D Blast, strangely enough. I blame the music. My other least-favorite goes to whatever Game Gear game had Knuckles in it . . . dear God, if the character in a PLATFORMER fills up half the screen, you might be just a little too detailed!)

(Sonic 2 for Game Gear gets mild hate for being so frickin' hard, but not much--I still wish it were included in the Mega Collection.)

I found Sonic 3D Blast so bland...

I think the game you are talking about is Sonic Blast? Yeah, that wasn't that great... I found it very strange to fight Robotnik in a Sun Wukong / Monkey King bot, specially since it was in the desert level! And the next boss looks like one of those burial thingies...

I still have have a few Sonic Game Gear games to play Sonic Gems Collection though...

With Sonic Mega Collection and the Gems collection you practically have all the Sonic games except the Chaotix one I think?
