Re: Quick Reference Guide to Retro Metroidvania/Platform Adventure Games

(GC) and Battle of Olympus (NES) Really enjoyed the setting and story of Chibi-Robo, but was kind of bored with most of the gameplay and didn't care for the battery mechanic in combination with the day/night cycle. I will probably try the NDS sequel though as it supposedl...

Re: Good Retro Games by Region of Origin - Visualized!

Basically done with this now. Let me know if I missed any good games that aren't too obscure or if there are still mistakes. I can also link each phrase to something, but I'm not sure what to use it for yet if at all. Could link to gameplay or something like a HG101 or retro gamer article I suppose.

Re: Your 2020 in Gaming - Highs, Averages and Lows

No Buy: I'm gonna try that for 2021, if only because I already have so many unplayed games on Steam and GOG at this point.

Good Retro Games by Region of Origin - Visualized!

The game selection is based mainly on user ratings from gamefaqs and mobygames (about 20+ votes and 3/5+ or 7/10+ ratings), and to a lesser extent igdb, imdb, lemon64 and lemonamiga. From the early ‘90s onwards I increased the rating requirement for these to about 3.7/5 or 7.5/10 as I was making a s...
