Tough choice but I picked Mercs. Haven't played a Tomb Raider game since TR3. but the new ones look really cool. But I have more fun blowing stuff up and causing chaos in games. But that's just me and why I love sandbox games!
I've replayed GTA: San Andreas like 4 times now because my saves keep getting corrupt. I think it does add alot to replaying them. And I'm in the same boat of not having a next gen console. I probabily couldn't list how many times I've redone sports franchise games or RPG's and games like GTA or DMC. But I've definately never had that problem of the memory card freezing. I remember some PS1 games where you could go in them and delete stuff off your card, but can't remember any PS2 games. Only one that comes to mind is Wild Arms 3.
If you like wrestling games I'd reccomend Tecmo World Wrestling and Pro Wrestling. But other than that not many other good wrestling games on the NES. Avoid Tag Team Wrestling at all costs!! It's not nearly as good as the arcade version. But one of my all time fav games on the NES would have to be........ DR. MARIO!! Good if you like puzzle games.
My fav game on GC was Baten Kaitos. Wish it could be ported to PS2 or something I loved that game. Even though I got to the final boss after 50+ hours and couldn't beat it and finally gave up on the game. Still one of my fav RPGs of all time. I am craving to get my hands on a GC again and play some more again lol. Because I'm crazy like that....
My local walmart also has one of the "family fun centers" which is pretty much just a place for parents to dump off their kids while they shop. But they do have a pacman/galaga machine in there. But other than that they got some crappy racing game, deer hunter game and another racing game. I remember when they used to have like ACTUAL good arcade machines and not crap ones. Yeah it's sad these days all arcade machines totally suck..........!
I was floored by the game when I first seen videos and screenshots of it. And when I played it I was even more impressed. I wish I would have kept it and not traded it in for the PS2 version. I really hate myself for that because I thought the PS2 version BLEW even with all the added content. Nothing will top the original GC version!
The only one that is a good sized arcade near me is like 30 miles away. It's a decent arcade though, mainly just have fighting games. I guess they also have a chucky cheese about 20 miles from me. But I wouldn't consider that a true arcade. But the bowling alleys around here and the movie theaters have decent small arcades. Not many good games but I guess their decent. But the main problem I find is all the games cost like $1.00 just for a play. Whatever happend to just paying a quarter?!? I remember one of the last ones I went to was inside a casino. And we played one of the House of the Dead games the most.
