My all-time favorites were the Infinity Engine games—Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale and Baldur’s Gate II. I tried to play Planetscape Torment, which was the original Infinity Engine game, but it was so damned hard to get out of that first dungeon, and I got bored with it.

I like puzzles and stories.

Console games, I generally only bother with Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy games. I’m always a few (or more) years behind because fuck paying $500 for a system and $70 apiece for games. The last Final Fantasy game I played was X-2, and I’m really glad I pirated the PC version because holy balls was that horribad. So far, favourite of each is Twilight Princess and Final Fantasy VIII. I’m looking forward to Breath of the Wild.

PC games: I like Fable: The Lost Chapters and Fable 3. If I could find more games like those that’d be great. I liked Oddworld: Abe’s Oddyssee back in the day, and recently found a couple of games that remind me of Abe all grown up: Limbo and Inside

Love the entire Myst series, and I teared up a bit when I finished the final game, knowing there would never be another. It’s not really the kind of game where you can go back and play again for the same experience, and I made the wrong choice at the end in a couple, and it makes me sad.

There was one Windows 95(?) PC CD-Rom game I played once that was a click-through puzzle thing and also a mystery story that I really liked, and I can’t remember the name of it to save my life. I’d picked it up in a yard sale, and I think it got left behind when we lost the house back in the day. Alas.

Anyway, I say all that to say you can keep your first person shooters and your MMORPGs. For me, video games are a solo activity. I don’t even like playing Mario Kart on two-player.

Word up, another SotN fan. Been playing that since like 1999. Also, do you mean Mega Man X? I also love that, up to MMX 3.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@Berserker Yes, I meant Mega Man X. Friggin’ typos. The whole Mega Man series was one of my favorites growing up, and I bought both of the collected editions released on PS2 a few years ago so I could play them all again. I’m with you on the series being solid right through X3. I’ve played a few of the later ones, but I’ve never been able to really get into any of them.

And hell yeah, SotN. One of my neighbors had it, and we used to play for hours at a time. It was the first game I bought when I got a PS2 for myself.

Berserker's avatar

You mean a PS1, right? I may be mistaken but I don’t think there ever was a version on PS2. There was on PSP, it was unlocked in another Castlevania game, and I bought it just for that, as there were a few new things in it. Different voices, which don’t compare to the original voices. Loved Alucard’s nasal voice and Dracula’s strident, slightly high pitched tone. It had new familiars as well, but they were only clones of the fairy and devil.

What I would really love though is a port of the Sega Saturn version, as that one had more areas, items and monsters. But now Konami’s dead, so it’s probably never going to happen.

Aye the later MMX games were…weird. The gameplay was a little different, didn’t have that classic feel to it as the SNES games had plus…too much story. I hate being interrupted every 15 seconds by cut scenes and how the bosses won’t stop talking before you fight. If I want that, I’ll play an RPG.
And by MMX7 they were really running out of ideas for bosses…seriously, “metal shark”? Aren’t all the reploids made of metal? How is that something to have as your main element? (well mega man II did have metal man…) Unless it meant metal, as the music genre, but if so that character’s appearance did not denote this at all. I also have the PS2 collection, last PS2 game I bought, too.

@Berserker Sorry, I’m a bad explainer. I sold all of my video game related stuff before leaving for college. When I realized how stupid that was, I started trying to get it back. I downloaded emulators for everything 16-bit and earlier, then bought a PS2 (which is backwards compatible) so I could play all of the old PS1 games I liked while still being able to pick up some of the newer Final Fantasy games. But I never had a PS1 back in the day. I only played those games at my neighbor’s house.

Fun story about the X series: it was supposed to end at MMX5, but Capcom decided to milk it for more money. So the original developers really had used up all of their good ideas before the last two games came out, which is why they are so lame. I was also disappointed in how they integrated Zero. We finally get to play him as a full character, but they don’t want to take away the focus from X. So they make Zero kind of suck in X4, and they make X ridiculously superior in X5. That plus awkward gameplay made me stick to the first three.

Berserker's avatar

Yeah, figures they were milking the franchise. There was a joke in EGM mag about that; everytime someone at Capcom sneezes, a Mega Man game comes out.

So do you have a fave X boss? Only pick one!

SavoirFaire's avatar

Magna Centipede. A four-armed ninja with magnet bombs and a tail? Awesome.

Berserker's avatar

Yeah plus he was tough as nails. I liked that special FX graphic or wtv it was they used for some of his attacks.

SavoirFaire's avatar

They gave him a lot of cool graphics, from the teleportation to his magnet attack (if you don’t destroy his tail). Do you have a different favorite?

Berserker's avatar

Morph Moth from the same game. He was weird, having three shapes, plus I liked his final shape where he flies slowly and drops all that crap all over you. It was all glittery and colorful, probably the girliest MMX boss ever, hut he seemed so dangerous and ominous haha. He should have been in SotN. _

Also I just realized, MMX2 has so many bug enemies; crystal snail, morph moth and magna centipede.
