  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic SW VOTE: What is the greatest game franchise of all time?. on the System Wars board

    @Ballroompirate: My comment was mainly alluding to 3D Mario games. There have been a total of six of those. As far as 2D Mario...eleven of those, I think--ten if you do not count Yoshi's Island, thoug...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic SW VOTE: What is the greatest game franchise of all time?. on the System Wars board

    Complaining that Mario games are the same because you jump on enemies or "collect" things is like saying Tekken is repetitive because you kick people, Metal Gear solid because you hide behind projecti...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic What is the appeal to Half-Life franchise?. on the System Wars board

    I thought that Half-Life 2 was overrated for a while myself, but another play-through and a bit of reflection on my experience helped me see the light. Others in this thread know more about the game's...

    @Ballroompirate: I don't understand how Mario and Link's clothes are relevant considering the evolutions within those respective series and the video game industry at-large that those franchises have ...

    @charizard1605: Well, it may have been divisive, but it is still critically acclaimed and loved by many. It is a good entry in that regard for the series. I thought it was fantastic. Doesn't mean I wa...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic SW VOTE: What is the greatest game franchise of all time?. on the System Wars board

    @Ballroompirate: Love Zelda, obviously. But think about the world surrounding Mario in his games--all of the amazing, diverse gameplay mechanics in each Super Mario game. Galaxy (and its sequel) shook...

    @Ballroompirate: Why? Ever since its conception on the NES, nearly each core installment has been a top-notch, Game of the Year contender. And I think it is hands-down the most influential, innovative...

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic What is your favorite PlayStation handheld?. on the System Wars board

    I don't game as much as I used to, so I will likely never get a Vita. If I do, it'll be at the end of its life cycle, dirt cheap. I didn't buy a PSP until it was essentially dead. Shame I has to sell ...

    4) Gameboy - Pokemon, Link's Awakening, Oracle series, Tetris, Super Mario Land series...great handheld. It was like having a pocket NES when NES was still cool.3) Nintendo DS - The concept of the DS ...

    @charizard1605: I don't have a Vita and probably will never get one, but I have contemplated buying P4 for my PS2. Is it close enough to the Vita version in greatness?

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic Alright, so what are your top 10 favorite games of all time?. on the System Wars board

    10) Halo: Combat Evolved - An incredible campaign and awesome split-screen multiplayer. This remains my favorite "traditional" first-person shooter, and it won me over to the Xbox brand.09) The Last o...

    To me, Nintendo was the best developer around in the eight and sixteen-bit era, and they are still the best today. I have been playing their games for about twenty years. That time has flown, but they...

    Zelda. Pretty sure I literally gasped when Anouma snapped his fingers. Great moment.

  • The_Deepblue posted a message in the forum topic What's the best Uncharted game and why?. on the System Wars board

    Uncharted 2 is probably in my Top 25 Games of All Time. The first Uncharted was not a good game. It was extremely repetitive, mechanically clumsy, and had drab set-pieces. Uncharted 2 fixed all of tho...

    How dare Nintendo not keep in line for the open-minded, tolerant, secular PC police. To remedy this, Nintendo needs to create 196 new characters, each one to represent each country in the world. Every...

    Great score, especially considering that the Mario Kart franchise has been hit and miss on this site. May get this day one.
