Shadow Man. It was just released on GOG.

One of the last good game made for the N64. Classic

For some reason I've always thought there wasn't much interest in the game. Happily, I've been seeing that I'm wrong in that understanding.

Yeah it did seem that way. Not a lot of people talk about it, even back when it was released

That's one of the reasons I was fairly surprised when it was released on GOG and read some of the comments and reviews. It seems it had a much larger following than I thought. I always loved the idea of the game, though I never did finish it on the N64.

So let me ask you this: How does it hold up after all this time has passed? Your opinion.

Honestly, I haven't made it that far since I started it again. I'm going to try to log some time on it tomorrow and make some progress, so I'll have to get back to you on that one. I'm still trying to get the controls figured out the rest of the way on the gamepad. I wish all games would just use the button names rather than the Button 1, 2, 3 stuff. I feel like an idiot sitting there pressing random buttons and then making notes on which does what.

Ultima 8

At this point, I'm about 40 minutes in, and I've died 3 times. The controls are horrid on PC. Neither gamepad or kb/m work adequately. There's no camera movement other than the direction the character faces, and that means there is no vertical camera movement, which leads to a lot of deaths. Not to mention the extremely weak starting weapon, which might be manageable if not for the poor controls. I already have a mod for the visuals installed, so I need to do some more research into how to adjust controls and so forth.

Design-wise, I haven't seen too much yet, but the opening areas are a bit cramped and twisty-turny.

Been playing 4 player Goldeneye 007 with some friends. Fucking classic man.

Played the original Tenchu: Stealth Assassins a few weeks ago. It's still as amazing a game as ever on a technical level. Visually it's atrocious- just... horridly ugly. The controls have no option to invert, and no scheme for dual analog control. The draw distance is about 12 feet in a game that revolves around complete situational awareness.

So in total it's an excellent game that's been given a horrible beatdown at the hands of time.

Yess! Tenchu Stealth Assassins is still my favorite ninja/stealth game ever, and one of my favorite games overall. It might not have aged very well, but one thing that I can definitely say is that the soundtrack is still one of the best!

Listen to it, and let the beauty of the music take you back in time.

A couple of months ago I played some Spider-Man 2 on my PS2. The game is total crap except for the web-swinging mechanics, but the web-swinging mechanics are SO good that I like to boot it up every once in a while just to take a spin around fake Manhattan and jump off the Empire State Building to see if I can catch a web-line right before making Spidey into concrete pizza. Fun times.

It's been a while, but I also enjoy firing up the old SSX games on the PS2 or Xbox every once in a while. But it was at least a year ago since the last time I did that.

Played Golden Axe and Streets of Rage over the weekend.

Still playing Genma Onimusha, i'm at the part were that doll showed up.

Oh God. I love the atmosphere and the combat is fantastic, but the camera combined with the tank controls make the game frustratingly difficult at certain times. I died at the fist boss around 6 times, and to escape that doll is seemingly impossible.

I already have a couple of other ridiculously difficult games in my backlog (Otogi & Ninja Gaiden Black), and they're starting to break my balls in turns.

Track Mania 2: Canyons

#70 Posted by Lucianu (9287 posts) -

Continued on with my playtrough of Dragon Quest V, after about a week break. I'm at the part were my father died.

The more i play it, the more in love i get with the storytelling and the plot, it's such a unique experience seeing the characters grow with me, beholding how everything changes around me. I highly recommend it to any gamer that wants a different perspective on JRPGs, and JRPG fans in general.

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite JRPGs ever, and my favorite on the SNES (yes, far above the brilliance of Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI).

Dragon Quest V is absolutely fantastic, and one of my favorite RPGs. Played it for the first on the DS (remake) a couple of years ago but I'm sure the SNES version is just as timeless.

The SNES version is tight on production values because it was one of the first RPGs for the SNES, the graphics aren't as good as Chrono Trigger, for example, which came out years later, but i still love it. Such an amazing game with fantastic characters and a breath taking sense of discovery and adventure.

The soundtrack of DQV, on the other hand, takes full advantage of the SNES chip, producing some exquisite soundtracks.

DQVI and the DQIII SNES remake are the ones with fantastic sprite graphics, so i'm gonna get on them once i finish V. After i get a 3DS, the DS remake of DQV is gonna be my first purchase, since it's BC with the DS.

A couple of the earlier Mega Man games about a month ago.

Sid Meier's Civilization. I find that most older games that do not rely on 3D are very replayable...

Grandia, which I bought for 3.50 in the PSStore and downloaded to the PS Vita.

Played through Max Payne 1 and PoP: SoT a couple of months ago. Neither has aged with dignity sadly. I dunno, I find it hard to enjoy old games. It's not the graphics, it's how clunky the gameplay feels compared to modern standards. I did replay A Link to The Past a year ago or so and that is actually a game that does hold up imo.

#97 Posted by bob_toeback (11267 posts) -

Donkey Kong Country. To be honest, that's basically the only thing I play, other than Fallout: New Vegas...

#98 Posted by kingcrimson24 (372 posts) -

What's clunky about them? Though i am curious to know what version of them you played.

resident evil: code veronica - still awesome!
