The best year for Videogames

I was just sat here wondering what the best year ever for videogames was and then remembered the insane amount of quality that came out in 1998. games that were released in the 12 months of 1998: Resident Evil 2 Panzer Dragoon Saga Xenogears Parasite Eve Starcraft Unreal F-Zero X Metal Gear Solid Fa...

Re: The 50Hz/60Hz question

Didn't the PAL version of Tekken 3 (PS) sell below Namco's sales projections because, * it was a poorly optimised PAL conversion featuring black screen borders and played noticeably slower than the NTSC version, Not sure if this was true for this game in general but this problem was my main irritat...

Such an awful 16-bit platformer it wasn't even on a 16-bit system! :lol:
Im fairly sure i saw it advertised back in the day on 16 & even 8 bit machines but my memory on that one is a little fuzzy.

Re: a decade only

90's by a huge margin. The golden age of videogames. the best of 2d and the most memorable and impacting of 3d.

Re: Awful 16-bit Platformers

To dismiss Plok as generic is to overlook the humour, the unusual control method and its original ideas. No way do i think those things you mentioned save Plok or make it a good game. The reason im dismissing Plok as ONLY generic and not as very poor or terrible is BECAUSE of the humour (which i th...

Re: Awful 16-bit Platformers

You are completely wrong on Plok. Great game. Your probably only saying that because Miyamoto said in an interview back in the day when asked what he thought was the best non Nntendo made platformer ever (pre 32 bit) that it was PLOK!!! Overall i didn't think it was awful and it controlled ok but t...

Re: Sim City or Theme Park?

Theme Park was fun back in the day and Sim City 2000 was even better and i play Sim City 4 now and again on the laptop as its a solid, addictive game, but both franchises pail in comparison to the Civilization games particularly Civ III + Conquests which i think is the best PC game ever made as its ...

Re: All about scrolling fighters.

Viewtiful Joe is easily the best one iv played and iv played all the known classics. Mart definitely get on it but be warned it's not a walk in the park like so many others its a challenging game even on Kids mode. Henshin-a-go-go, baby!

Re: Classic Tomb Raider - These games are so hard!

The important thing with the PS1 TR games is not to fight the controls or try and rush them as in trying to turn sharper than they allow but being smooth with them. I can complete the first 3 games using ONLY pistols getting every secret and pickup and without using a single medi-pack throught the e...

Re: Classic Tomb Raider - These games are so hard!

Iv bought, played through & completed the first 5 on PS and i can safely say overall TR3 was the hardest of the lot in terms of staying alive. There were some parts on TR2 that were as hard but they removed the save crystals and offered a save anywhere which made it easier and the fear of death was ...

Re: Jet Set Radio - overrated?

I gave the trial another shot today as it's now on Vita. F*ck me the game looks beautiful on the screen. The colours practically leap out at smack you in the face! Shame the game is absolute crap though. Feels like you're skating in sand, you get chased and shot, you have a timer, you can't trick w...
