  1. Hi everyone, I'm curious what everyone's all time, favorite, top 10 games list would be. I always have trouble ranking mine so I am interested in seeing what everyone else' lists look like. This could be old games, new games, console, PC, boardgames, card games you name it. I'll try to list mine here to get the ball rolling but in no particular order. Bioshock 1 Portal 2 Half-life 2 Final Fantasy 6 Final Fantasy 7 Chrono Trigger Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Diablo 2 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Fallout 3 And that's my list, at least for now. Your turn!
  2. So let's have a nostalgia thread. I recently dug out an old system for a guild table at an event, and it was a welcome flashback. So I figured we could all chat about our early days of gaming and see how much we have in common. 1. What game or games did you spend the most time playing as a kid? 2. What was the first game to impact you on a deeply emotional level? Bonus: Did gaming shape you as a person? I'll start! 1. First off was Oregon Trail on the apple computers at school. My brother had a NES and I used to watch him play MegaMan, but never played myself because it supposedly wasn't something girls did. I still spent a lot of time playing dumb computer games when we got our first desktop. It was DOS, and I can barely even remember the games we had, but I remember my parents being amazed at how quickly I learned to access the games directory myself. I think one was called PC Pool, and there was a version of Tetris... but Battle Chess was my game of choice. Then our next computer Windows 3.1 - (SOLITAIRE FTW) and my uncle got us about 200 freeware games to play around with - not to mention Sim City! Things really kicked off when my brother got his Super Nintendo though. Super Mario RPG. He hated it, but I loved it. I was a gamer for life after that. Because of a rather strict household when it came to gaming, I really became the gamer I am today when I left for college, but thankfully my Husband (BF at the time) got me caught up on what I'd missed 2. VI was the first Final Fantasy I played. I actually played it well behind the curve when @slowmojoe got me to play it in college. Gawd, the opera scene still kinda makes me cry a bit. He also convinced me to play Suikoden. If you've played it. you already know. There are several scenes (and one big one in particular) that really stab a knife in your heart. Much Cry. Such feels. Wow. Bonus: Absolutely. JRPGs pretty much made me who I am today. Because of them, I got into Cosplay, Anime, Japanese Culture, and of course, they kept me a dedicated gamer.
  3. What was old is new again. Nintendo has announced plans to release a miniature collector's edition Nintendo Entertainment System this holiday season. Set to launch on November 11, the NES Classic Edition is a compact machine for the digital age. The device retails for $60 and relies on a pre-installed digital library rather than cartridges. No more blowing into cart slots and praying to the deities of electronics. The NES Classic Edition comes packaged with 30 titles from the NES library, one NES Classic controller, an HDMI cable, and an AC adapter. If players want to experience retro co-op in the titles of the digital library, they will have to spend an additional $10 on a second NES Classic controller. “We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's president and COO. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.” Each title included with the mini NES comes with the ability to suspend play and resume later without losing progress, a welcome feature for those who didn't grow up with the NES to be sure. The complete roster of titles included in the NES Classic Edition is listed below: Balloon Fight Bubble Bobble Castlevania Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Jr. Double Dragon II: The Revenge Dr. Mario Excitebike Final Fantasy Galaga™ Ghosts ’N Goblins Gradius Ice Climber Kid Icarus Kirby’s Adventure Mario Bros. Mega Man 2 Metroid Ninja Gaiden Pac-Man Punch-Out!! Featuring Mr. Dream StarTropics Super C Super Mario Bros. Super Mario Bros. 2 Super Mario Bros. 3 Tecmo Bowl The Legend of Zelda Zelda II: The Adventure of Link As a nice compatibility bonus, the NES Classic controller can be connected to the Wii Remote and used to play Virtual Console titles, too. Is the NES Classic Edition worth the price as a machine or a collectible? Is it enough to bring that nostalgia washing back? What do you think?

  5. So, to try and encourage some activity on the board here, I wanted to steal an idea I got from the general gaming forum, and create a nostalgia thread. 1. What game or games did you spend the most time playing as a kid? 2. What was the first game to impact you on a deeply emotional level? Bonus: Did gaming shape you as a person? 1. What game or games did you spend the most time playing as a kid? - Let's see... I remember playing some older PC games, on Windows 95, but as above, I definitely remember Oregon Trail on a floppy disk at school as a kid. I remember having friends with NES's, and I absolutely loved playing Duck Hunt. Perhaps it was because of the actual gun you got to use, which is probably why I'm into FPS games to this day. First gaming system aside from PC we owned though was an SNES. Played Super Mario World for hours on end. Had Super Ghouls and Ghosts, but dang that game's hard. Took me breaking it back out in college to finally actually beat the game. As I got older, got a Playstation, and with it, Final Fantasy 7. That was probably the game I dropped the most hours on (Level 99, maxed stats, all the secret weapons, etc). 2. What was the first game to impact you on a deeply emotional level? I remember Super Mario World giving me that feeling of being invincible, like I could take on the world. (Old) Spoiler Alert! Bonus: Did gaming shape you as a person? Most definitely. Gave me my interest in technology, and helped inspire my creativity and wonder today. I know other gamers like myself (who enjoy RPGs) absolutely love getting lost in a good story. Much like a good book. Only it's better, because instead of reading about the characters... you ARE the characters.
