The Master System was my first console, but I remember when I first saw the graphics of Sonic on the Mega Drive (Genesis). I was blown away. It was soooo much better than what I was playing on the Master System.

@steve5xg: Nice!

I'm being lazy and just picking up the Switch in portable mode at the moment

While there are individual JRPGs that are better than any FF games, when we're collectively comparing entire franchises, it's pretty hard to say any RPG franchise could top FF.

I'd agree. That said, the Persona series is pushing a close second for me.

I'll give a special mention to Olympic Soccer on Sega Saturn, but my all-time favourite sport game would be Shane Warne Cricket '99 (aka Brian Lara Cricket '99 outside of Australia). Me and a few mates sank hours into that one.

I'm going to have to go for the Witcher 3 as well. It obviously got a lot of praise and many gaming sites have held it up as an example when reviewing other games throughout the year.

Uncharted 3 would have to be up there.

PAX Australia will be held in Melbourne from October 30 to November 1, 2015. Unfortunately, I'll be travelling at the time, but what about you guys? Anyone planning to attend?

What is PAX Australia? PAX was originally established in 2004 as a weekend-long celebration of gamer culture. In 2013, the first PAX Australia was held at the Melbourne Showgrounds to a sold-out crowd. To cater for larger numbers, the event was moved to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in 2014, and once again will be held there this year.

If you'd like to see what'll be on during the event, check out the schedule here.

Hey hey. My name is Michael and I'm an astrophysicist working in Sydney, Australia. I've also been a moderator on the GameSpot forums for almost a decade! I've been gaming for most of my life and favour point-and-click adventure and role playing games, but will dabble in almost all genres.

My oldest working game system is a Sega Master System. However, I have older consoles, but they're no longer working :(

I'm pretty keen to see what Square Enix present at their showcase.
