Re: Rosetta physicist's 'sexist' shirt

Imagine the outrage if a female scientist was judged by her clothes and not by her achievements.

Re: Top 25 NES games

1. Legend of Zelda - It showed that games could be more than linear platforming adventures. A game so huge that you had to save it with a battery pack, not to mention that it had a golden cartridge. 2. SMB3 - A perfectly crafted platformer and a true classic to this day. 3. Mega Man 2 - Super tight ...

Re: Best game genre trend?

Got to be JRPGs. For me, nothing will ever come close to games like Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy VI.

Re: Games that don't get the attention they deserve

Blood, an FPS for DOS. It's just as good as (if not better than) Doom and Duke 3D.

Re: So what is your best FPS then?

HL2 is damn near perfection, and I also love Doom. But one of my favourites is an underrated DOS game called Blood. Definitely check it out if you're a fan of games like Duke 3D or Shadow Warrior.

Re: Kids react to Game Boy

Nice :D My friends think I'm crazy for having an original gameboy instead of an iPod or iPad. Get an ipod, jailbreak it, get the gameboy emulator and have all your gameboy games in the palm of your hand at all times ! I was considering that, but it doesn't feel authentic enough for me. I have to pl...

Best Snacks for Gaming

What do you people like to eat when gaming? My favourites are: -Doritoes (Can be eaten one-handed and found easily) -Mountain Dew (Energy boosting gamer fuel) -Gummy Bears (Chewy goodness in a variety of flavours that leaves next to no residue on the controller) -Skittles (Same reasons as gummy bear...

Best SNES RPGs?

The SNES was the golden age of role-playing games, with classics being released every year. How would you rank them? Here's my list:

1. Chrono Trigger
2. FF6
3. Secret of Mana
4. Super Mario RPG
5. Earthbound

Re: Scariest gaming moments of all time

A couple that spring to mind... The "invisible water creature" in Amnesia takes the top spot. You can't see him, and you can't fight him. If you touch the ground (which is all wet as the corridor has flooded) he'll dash straight toward you and kill you. So you have to masterfully jump from box to t...
