I consider SMB.3 to be better than SMW too. :wink:
Because they just CAN! I genuinely thought "Iznogoud" was some sort of April fools joke, sadly its a real game.

SMB3 is pretty great - I think with the 16 bit polish of SMB3 in Mario All Stars, for me its equally as good as SMW.

I find playing the NES version a bit of a mess though, which I'm sure just saying this is probably blasphemous, and punishable by death.

Wow.. The Last Of Us has been mentioned a bit now which has surprised me a bit.. guess I will have to give it another chance, I played it, was definitely blown away by the atmosphere and graphics but I will admit I didn't give it a big chance. I had gotten Beyond Two Souls that same week and even more stuff on PC.

Also Super Mario Galaxy 2 (I think it was 2 that received 100%), now that has to be changed in a future RG issue because NO DAMN WAY that game deserves 100%, too many frustrating jumpy bits, just putting that out there because it needs to be rectified otherwise I cant sleep these days*

*yes, I can.

Final Fantasy XII.

It redefined offline RPG's and did it years before Xenoblade apparently did. The most incredible game world ever created and nice to see a Final Fantasy game without teenage angst, not that I am against that as I love FFVIII.

It was a throw up between DOOM and DOOM II for me. I'll go with DOOM II due to the almost endless amount of user made content for that game.

Here's some screens of one of the few maps that i ever bothered to finish:

so many mentioned and some not came close (Morrowind, Fallout 3, SMW, Kick Off, Panzer General, C&C, Wow, FFVII) but right now, gut instinct, if I could repeat any game playing experience I'd be hoping into the cockpit of an x-wing in Star Wars arcade

I'd recognise that anywhere. It's The first Guyver movie, AKA Mutronics: The Movie in the UK.

Believe it or not that creature is Mark Hamill.

Too right it is! But look on the bright side : should you ever come to be in a position at some point in the rest of your life whereby someone holds a gun to your head and demands to know what your favourite game on any system or console is, ever, you will at least have the answer! And live!

So I would take it seriously. Very, very seriously.

:wink: :roll:
