Seconding God Hand, although it might be a bit too difficult for some... I still struggle with it now, but it's quite satisfying once you get into it. If we're counting 3D brawlers, then Crisisbeat on the PS1 might be worth your time. It does drag on a bit, but it's quite fun, with a silly 'lock on ...

Yeah, I guess the system was a giveaway. Black Hole Assault is the correct answer.

Incidentally, if any of you ever think about playing Black Hole Assault, here's a bit of advice; don't. I got it for free, and I still felt ripped off.

Yeah, I like Bonze Adventure. A bit of an odd one, but quite fun! Anyway, here's mine. Clue: It's a Mega-CD game.

Only advice I can give is collect what you have a keen interest in. Be it a certain system or game or even game publisher. Yeah, I definitely agree with this. I think collecting a full series is a better idea. I went for something easy, so I've got every Earthworm Jim game released (well, except th...

Mostly lightgun games... Unfortunately, I'm not nearly good enough to beat the majority of these with one credit. In the arcde: House of the Dead 1, 2 and 3 Point Blank 1, 2 and 3 Aim for Cash (rare variant of Point Blank 3 that gives out money!) Virtua Cop 3 Time Crisis Outrun 2 Outrun 2 SP: Specia...

Mario Kart 64 - My favourite multi player game to play with my brother. We both know the entire game inside out so it guarantees a close competition! Me and my brother are exactly the same, although whenever we play (which is rare, as the matches always get extremely heated and violent) we play the...

Consider me jealous, it's an excellent game! Where did you get that from, if you don't mind me asking? Anyway, I've been on a huge Saturn k...

Well, the Game Gear... I never really know what to think about it. On the one hand, there's some pretty interesting games on it, and the Master System converter you can get for it adds even more games to it (although forget playing Phantasy Star or text-heavy games on it, the words are too small to ...

yeah, the lack of memory card support stopped me from buying the psikyo collections The thing that I thought was weird was that the ones that were sold seperately did have memory card support, but the two kept as a collection (Strikers and Gunbird) didn't! Why?! ... Back to the topic at hand. Samur...

Oh, yeah, I know all about this. It doesn't happen too often, but past examples include... Staying up until 3:00 finishing the last mission of Global Defence Force last week- the final few missions are really exhausting, as you get giant spiders and ants thrown at you with wanton abandon, and then y...

If only my PS2 was modded to play any region games, I'd hunt down all of these compilations that never left Japan. Sometimes, I wonder why I still live in the UK. :? Yeah, I know what you mean- I'd really like that ADK Collection if only for Twinkle Star Sprites. I'm actually pretty amazed that som...

Thinking about it yesterday, I'd love to play some of SNK's other lesser-known fighters. Savage Reign, Kizuna Encounter and Aggressors of Dark Combat all intrigue me massively. Reckon they'll ever get a re-release? I didn't see this mentioned elsewhere in the thread- Aggressors of Dark Kombat was i...

Getting my old consoles back was the reason I started playing retro games in the first place! We had a NES back in the day, with about 20 games... Everything was sold to buy a copy of Aladdin for the Mega Drive. Then, when we had a 40-game Mega Drive collection... We sold all that to go towards a Pl...

Definitely R-Type for me, it's the one I played first, and the Force Pod is a lot more interesting than the power-up bar from Gradius. It's also a lot less frustrating when you die, as you can get the Force Pod back quicker than building up your power bar again. Still, I like Gradius, but I never pl...
