  • I finally played FF3 through, and was pretty dissapointed.  FF2 is such a solid game that I just expected too much for FF3.

    • You know, I loved the music, loved the characters and loved the storyline.  After all that, it was the gameplay (go figure for an RPG) that got me.  Espers were a cool concept, but giving anyone the ability to learn magic was wrong on so many levels; magic users should be few and far between, end of story.  It would be like injecting someone with metachlorians and raising your own Jedi army!

  • Do you think that we are destined to always look back the the SNES with rose-colored glasses.  I mean it was by far the best system of all time.  Nothing has even come close.

    I will always have fond memories of Doom, though my experience started with Doom II (and its super aweome Super Shotgun).  What I remember most was tying up my phone line late at night to death match my cousin.  All that aside,  I always felt single player gameplay in the Doom series was a little too slow and methodical.

     

     Duke Nukem gave me the new experience of frantically running around, using up all my ammo and finally clearing out a room of pigs with my boot to his face, all while being on steroids :)  It was this fast-paced action (as well as some creative weaponry and the Stadium level, which acted as a great 1v1 map for deathmatch) that makes it more memorable for me.

    Mega Man 2 was one of the first NES games I owned. With its classic gameplay and memorable music, it was a wonderful entrance to the world of Mega Man (still haven't played through the original...the presence of points and lack of 8 bosses is still weird). To this day I still play this game through.

    Last summer I decided it was time to give another game a chance. I loaded up Mega Man 3 and was immediately greeted with a lot of the same, but something didn't feel right. Gone were Dr. Wily's bots with cool elemental influences (Heat Man, Air Man, Metal Man); in their place were bots with odd influence (Hard Man; seriously, Top Man?) I decided I had no choice but to play it through until the end.

    One of the classic features of the Mega Man series is the opportunity to re-battle fallen bosses during the Dr. Wily stage. By this point you probably have figured out their weakness, so the battles aren't too difficult. Imagine my surprise as I was playing through these levels and found those same teleporters at the end of these new stages.

    *SPOILER ALERT*

    Those teleporters brought me into battle against all the bots from Mega Man 2. This was not just unexpected but it brought back great memories previous years. Lost in this nostalgia was the need to figure out what their new weaknesses would be (Magnet Man for Metal Man wasn't too tough). As if this wasn't enough, you also get to fight the cyclops that constantly disassembles itself (a definite throwback to the original Mega Man).

    These battles made Mega Man 3 a wonderful experience, but since the throwbacks to the past made it so memorable, I am going to give the nod to Mega Man 2.
