Eek. If this was a few years ago I would have had a few. Right now I only remember "Alien Soldier's music and Pulseman's music isn't very good" and "Super Mario World lost my interest in the first few levels" but for Alien Soldier that could change maybe (if I can ever actually play it for any length of time), Pulseman can change maybe, and for Super Mario World that definitely did change after I gave it another chance.

Maybe "Sonic Lost World 3DS is slightly more entertaining than Sonic Lost World Wii U's demo". I actually asked out loud if I was having fun yet when I was playing the demo. Lost World 3DS is still an unpleasant game, but I didn't feel bored by it so much as frustrated.

Part of the problem is that I really haven't played a wide variety of games, and a lot of what I do play is stuff I generally like :/ If I have more I'll post it here I guess. (As for what was discussed, I like SMB1-3/W (now), the 2D Metroid games (but I much prefer Super Metroid's physics and controls to any of the others, maybe with some changes to the shinespark though), have never played most JRPGs including SNES ones (I did want to change that some time ago though; I could probably do so now), I haven't played most Mario Kart games; I've only played through SPM but started Sticker Star recently and it's ok so far, and like most of the Zelda games but haven't played SS yet and forgot what of TP I did play and haven't played the DS ones or (anything past the first Forsaken Fortress in) WW.)

If I had to add one more, I prefer the first Puyo Puyo over the second one. I like the new additions to the formula, but the way the experience system works ruins the thing (VS CPU mode is the only mode, everything else can go away because there is no one else that plays it here and I don't do endless :V).

That, and DRMBM and all the SNES versions of the first game are inferior. The SNES versions in particular screwed up the controls.

Oh, this is actually a good one for this thread: I don't enjoy the Smash Bros. games as much as most people do. Sure, they're fun and they're good games, but I would prefer playing other games.

I also just remembered that, even though I enjoyed playing a bit of the Donkey Kong Country SNES games, I would never go back and play those again, but I don't really know why. Even though I didn't think about this back then, now I consider Returns to be better than the original trilogy, but I don't know if that's a popular opinion or not.

Hell yeah. I will defend DKC3 over 2 because 3 is made with a good difficulty curve and it doesn't have bullshit like "Oh you can't save in world 4 until you complete these 3 levels. Died at level 3? Oops! Start the world over!"


DKC3 is pretty underrated. People mostly talk about DKC 1 and 2 while 3 gets swept under a rug. The reason for that might have to do with the fact that 3 came out at the end of the SNES' and GBA's lifetime. Also, people seem to disregard the game because of Kiddy Kong.

Here's what may be an unpopular opinion fact, the GBA version of 3 is superior to the SNES version. Two reasons for this. The music in the SNES version is kind of lackluster. For whatever reason, David Wise, the guy who composed music in the first two games (quite well might I add), didn't compose music for the 3rd game. In the GBA port, David Wise had redone all the music tracks in the game and most of them sound damn good too. Really, compare the two pieces below:

SNES

GBA

There's a totally different feel in the second track. The second reason the GBA port is better is because they added a bunch of new levels into the port. It's a nice touch considering that the only thing the two previous ports did was basically add a bunch of pointless minigames.

I was thinking of picking up that bundle for no reason other than PAC-MAN Championship Edition. I kind of have an itching to play some pacman. I've heard this game is good although it isn't your traditional pacman.

Smash is a good time. It's fun to play but I agree with what you are saying. I could never play Smash competitively. I like playing a few matches and then moving onto something else.

I loved Shadow the Hedgehog. I am a sucker for choice based endings. Choosing whether you want to be good, bad, or not really give a damn is definitely the attractive feature in this game. People overlook it because Shadow with guns. Or Shadow in a bike. But the actual implementation of choice based gameplay is what makes this a gem to me. Kinda like a diamond n the rough.

Granted, I have seen Modern Sonic style glitches once or twice, but then I reset and play again. It was fun when I had it.

DKC3's soundtrack was composed by Eveline Fischer, who co-wrote DKC1's soundtrack.

"Stilt Village" is probably one of the only tracks in the original that doesn't fit the series that well, and personally I think a lot of the GBA version's themes don't really fit it any better. Most of DKC3's soundtrack was cool and atmospherical in a really similar way to DKC1's, I think.

Championship Edition is actually really really good, I've owned it since before this bundle and it is quite fun. Doesn't really play at all like ordinary Pac-Man, but i really enjoy the new mechanics.

I actually have a gift-able copy from the bundle, want me to throw a key for steam to you over PM?

Final Fantasy VII is not a good game. The story is boring, the music is uninspired at best, the characters suck, and the graphics are absolute garbage.

Actually, most games on the PlayStation were terribly executed for one reason or another, and they nearly all looked terrible. Despite everything wrong with N64, somehow PSX games still looked worse.

Playing games online isn't very fun. It's okay with friends but playing on public servers is asking to be annoyed.

The Metroid series isn't fun because of the exploration, it's fun because of the platformer aspect.

IDK, I just really think the GBA version has better quality music to it. They give off a different vibe than their SNES counterpart.

Still, even if you think the music pieces are equivalent, the GBA version does feature more levels. I think the GBA version still comes out on top.

That depends. Are any of the other games in the Humble Bundle worth it? I've literally never played any of the ones offered in the current bundle. I'd feel bad to waste a key someone generously offered me when it might be better for me to just get the bundle. I mean, if the other games aren't worth it then I'd take your key for pacman championship edition DX if you are willing and want to give it to me.

I have no clue if any of the other games are worth it honestly, Pac-Man is the only one I have played before, and I haven't tried any of the others yet.

Barely even heard of the other games excluding Dark Souls and Enslaved, so yeah, your guess is as good as mine if it is worth it.

It was worth it for this game alone. Pure gameplay. I love it.

I will get to Dark Souls at some point since I have it now.

Just a few days ago I found out about DCK3's soundtrack differences in the SNES and the GBA, and I thought I'd post it here, but then I saw that you all already discussed this earlier and I just completely glanced over it. Hoooray.

It's not like the discussion is a few months old or anything, right? Oh it is. Darn.

Both OSTs have goods and bads. The original is very atmospheric, creating a very unique ambience to DKC3. The bad about it is that, some if not all of the songs are somewhat bland. The GBA one is magical and wonderful, creating various different atmospheres through the entire game, but then you lose the theme of what's supposed to be DCK3 once the songs don't fit very well with each other and the game itself.

Rockface Rumble
SNES
GBA

Treetop Tumble
SNES
GBA

Boss Boogie
SNES
GBA

Water World
SNES
GBA

Rockface Rumble is a great example, along with Cascade Capers (in another post). The SNES version matches a theme, while keeping the tracks different, while the GBA ones separate the themes, making something that sounds way better, but overall doesn't match the game. If you look through the comments of the GBA version of Treetop Tumble, you can see some people saying that it's a good song, but it doesn't match with one stage in particular.

At the same time, if you compare Water World for example, you can see how much more alive the GBA soundtrack is. I'll admit it, I listened to the GBA Water World through the entire 30m loop and afterwards I still hit replay. It is that good, but I also listen to the SNES version of the same song, as depressing as the song is, it's a good song too, just not in the same way.

Overall, it really just comes down to preference. I listen to both OSTs because each one is good on their own way. I feel bad when someone just completely glances over the GBA OST saying it's bad, because it is good, but the same goes for the SNES one.

New ones:
Sonic 1. I don't like it very much. The first one I played was Sonic & Knuckles, and then afterwards the other ones. I played all of then a few times and I realized how they were great games, but after a while, I felt like there was something missing in Sonic 1. That should be understandable, since it's an earlier game. I dunno, maybe I got sick of playing Sonic 1? If that's the case then that's weird, because I still enjoy playing Sonic 2 and 3.

I never understood the hype about the Sonic Adventure games. I have played then and it just doesn't feel right, like some sort of predecessor to Sonic '06. At least this doesn't feel like a too unpopular of an opinion.

I prefer Super Mario 64 DS over Super Mario 64, because overall the game feels more complete (like it should), even if the controls are sligthly more weird.

I noticed that people tend to call something overrated cause there is something similarish they like better. It's annoying, especially when it comes down to personal taste a lot of the time.

Aka where all those annoying LTTP vs OOT arguments come from.

And my controversial opinion is that a lot comes down to personal taste. Sometimes the simplicity of older games can be good in itself too. The main thing I find that makes a game dated is controls like Goldeneye (but then again gamepad FPS controls are basically unplayable for me even on modern consoles).

Undertale gives more of a earthbound than homestuck vibe to me. Probably cause the creator actually made a earthbound hack too!

...that said, the fanbase is a little too happy giving away what I consider spoilers. :/ That part is really annoying.

From what I've seen, the fanbase is very careful not to spoil it for those that haven't played it. Guess it depends on where you look or hang out.

The only time I got spoiled was when someone on my friends list on Steam actively said spoilers to me while I was playing the game.
