Ooh Majora's Mask, my favorite Zelda game followed closely by Link's Awakening. I'm sad that those two are both overshadowed by their predecessors: A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time.

It's a matter of tastes and opinions, and yours aren't universal.
Heh, I had a strong urge to say a good Big Lebowski quote while reading his post... oh whatever here it goes: "Well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man"

It's funny you mention Persona. My friend just went out and bought all those games for a small fortune. I've been watching him play them, very cool games. I wish I had a playstation just so I could I play them because they look very unique.
Yeah, they are pretty fun, but the first one got what is probably the most butchered official translation ever. It's the total opposite of the third and fourth where they left in every honorific and Japanese cultural reference. They tried so hard to change it to fit a western audience that they changed the character portraits and even made one character black... yeah.

I think those changes speak for themselves...
There were actually two parts to Persona 2: Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment, but Innocent Sin didn't get localized in the US due to the fact that Hitler was revived in it as a story point and there's apparently an option for a homosexual relationship somewhere in it. I'm playing a fan translated version of it right now on emulator and it's pretty good.
I haven't played most of the Shin Megami Tensei series, but Persona is a spinoff of it and I've heard their other games are really good as well. Especially Devil Summoner, Digital Devil Saga, and SMT: Nocturne. Most of them are pretty rare, but if you look hard enough you could probably find a few for sale at Gamestop for 30 dollars or less.

I hate how Kingdom Hearts 2 turned into Hit Triangle to Win. It also ruined the only cameos from FF6 and 9 by making them losers in some retarded boffing contest. Also, don't get me started on the fanbase, yaoi, horrible cosplay, and cheesy dialogue related to it... please don't get me started on it. :judo:

But, to move this thread forward, some more games to add since a lot of more mainstream stuff seems to be making it's way into here:
Persona series, all of them are good although it wasn't too popular outside of Japan until the more recent releases of 3 and 4 here in the states. The first two are basically Pokemon meets Shin Megami Tensei, and the 3rd and 4th add in a dating sim mechanic for leveling up your summons. If you have a strong aversion to animeish culture with all it's sans, kuns, sempeis, chans, and semi stereotypical character archetypes, then I advise you not to play 3 and 4 since it's chock full of all of that.
Professor Layton and the Curious Village is an awesome puzzle(edit: riddle would be a better word actually) game with a great art style and story.
No More Heroes is a great Wii game that is kinda like Mad World with it's ridiculous amount of violence and bad language. It also makes a reference to Duke Nukem: Forever.
Brave Fencer Musashi is kinda like Kirby for PS1
Drakengard for PS2 is a very awesome game that is seriously overlooked. It's characters and story are very dark and if I had to simplify it down to it's core, I'd say it's Berserk meets Eragon.
Chrono Cross was probably overlooked by a lot of people since it wasn't really Chrono Trigger 2. I think the story, music, and characters are very awesome, and I'd like to think there's another dimension out there where we're all sitting here in a Naruto forum discussing how we wish Sasuke was a real person, because then we might have friends, and by "like to think" I mean dread.

Also, lets try to keep the Pokemon, Mario, GTA, Guitar Hero, Final Fantasy, and all that toned down a bit since I don't think anybody has overlooked any of those titles :guts: but if you do think one was overlooked, by all means mention it. I'm sure there's still a few people who haven't played Final Fantasy Tactics, but I'm sure there's nobody on this site who hasn't heard of FFVII.

New teaser trailer for Final Fantasy: Dissidia

Trailer looks good, wish I had a PSP for this one. Looks like I'll be harassing my friend again.
It is pretty good, although I can't wait for the English version to come out since the story segments are probably the most interesting part and I have no idea what's going on in Japanese. Seeing Kefka, Kuja, Zidane, and Terra together is quite awesome since VI and IX are my favorites and they usually get the short end of the stick. Kingdom Hearts ruined both Setzer and Vivi with its portrayal of them and I'm glad all the characters are as they were in their original games rather than the later spin offs and whatnot.

This is semi related to this thread, but I just found out that the actor playing Piccolo in the Dragonball movie lives in/came from my town. What a great claim to fame.  :schierke: But I guess George Lucas coming from here more than balances that out, huh?

Looks cute at first, but it is a game of SCREAMING HORROR by the end. You could probably finish it in about a half hour of play.

A good analogy for the game... well, think of what the Beherit does as you play it, when a new Apostle is born. That's... actually a pretty accurate way to describe how... messed up OMGWHAT happens in the game. The cute lasts for maybe three levels, and the rest are... well, it's the only 2d game that gave me a sense of genuine fear, near the end there.

Edit: Plus, it's free.

Another game like that one is Yume Nikki, although you don't really die in it, it's more of a creepy just walk around game, it's also free.
Oh, and the Evidence series is good. I think it's called Missing Since January outside of the US. You play as a detective helping a serial killer case but the thing is you receive real time e-mails to your actual  e-mail account and the game acts like you're a real person trying to figure out the case. It involves a lot of internet research to figure out the killer's puzzles and there are sites made just for the game that look like real websites.

You just reminded me to start Xenogears over again. The second disc I had was messed up and kept freezing in the first battle that comes after a 20 minute cut scene with no way to save. I also just recently bought ICO, Eternal Darkness, and Killer 7 from some video rental store for like 20 bucks, but I haven't got a chance to play ICO yet since I let a friend borrow my PS2 and haven't got it back yet.

Name off a few games you think everybody should play at least once. Maybe not your favorites exactly, but ones you think have something to offer regardless of somebody's prejudices against certain genres/developers. My personal favorite three games are Final Fantasy 6, Deus Ex, and Mother 3, but I think Deus Ex is definitely a game everyone should try out at least once. Earthbound for SNES is another one everyone should play and most people probably missed out on due to being in the shadow of Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6. It invokes a certain nostalgia whenever I play it and makes me wish that when I younger I would've had a chance to explore unknown places like Ness and his friends did. Oh, and another great game everyone should play is Full Throttle for PC, an adventure game by Lucas Arts about a biker trying to save his gang. What's your guy's input on these games, and what games would you add to the list?

Sorry if my rambling format causes your brain to faze in and out of focus while you're reading  :troll:.
Also, if you haven't played Deus Ex, get it now, and if you have, REINSTALL LIKE THE MOTHER FUCKING FIST OF THE NORTH STAR!

 :judo: Sorry guys, it's been lost for years. I was just an irresponsible kid back then with no idea how awesome that would've been to keep. I suppose it's either in some dump somewhere or deep in some old box in my dad's attic. Oh, and I just talked to him a few hours ago and he was playing Wind Waker, so even today he's still gaming at least a little bit.

Forget porn, I found my dad's hand-drawn Zelda 2 map underneath his giant speakers.

New show for all you hardcore Watchmen movie fans out there.
Executive produced by visionary Watchmen co-creator Zack Snyder!

Oh, that nutty Rorschach. Always getting in to trouble. I love the episode where Rorschach's dog dies in a car accident, and the team has to teach him how to accept his poor friend's death as part of the cycle of life. The Niteowl Says segment at the end was kind cheesy though, did they really need to tell kids not to play with car lighters?

I couldn't decide if this should be in the Youtube thread or not, but since this song has been stuck in my head since I saw it a week ago, I felt it suitable here:

The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist

Awesome, I remember this song because of Dexter's Lab

It looks like a leprechaun to me, you just gotta look up in the tree. Whoever see a leprechaun say "yeah" :ganishka: (video removed)

9001 hours in mspaint  :guts:

Edit: uh, dunno why that dumb test thing showed up at the bottom, must be an ImageShack thing. Also, I know that sacrificing with a brand isn't like a wish granting system, but lets just say Guts used his new demon powers to get delicious ice cream... alright it still makes no sense, but what can you expect from an MSpaint comic at 4 in the morning?

Movies, TV, Books & Music / Re: Recommendations for Manga
« on: March 27, 2009, 05:39:47 PM »
I'm gonna go ahead and put in my recommendations, but I'll be including some stuff that already was said:
Monster is my favorite manga/anime besides Berserk, and the anime version follows the manga exactly with maybe one or two minor differences
20th Century Boys, which is also by Monster's author and has live-action version that follows it nearly exactly  :schnoz: no really I'm not kidding
Planetes is another great one that was already mentioned
GTO, again, already mentioned but still awesome
Shonen Junai Gumi which is the prequel to GTO
Golden Boy, which is probably the funniest anime/manga I've seen/read. If you watch the anime, get the dub for sure since it surpasses the original in my opinion.
Cromartie High, which is at least a close second to Golden Boy in terms of humor.
Welcome to the NHK is probably my third favorite anime/manga although I really didn't like the ending chapters of the manga. The original novel is also a pretty good read.

Hello everyone, first time posting on this site. I also found that the song Out of Control by Edguy really reminds me of Griffith.

Into a place of darkness. He was born to live alone
He got one big desire. One day he`d get the crown
Hey devil come on help me now
Be the one to pull my string
Let me be your slave to serve you
To let me be the king
Just give me a sign
Take on my mind and let me stay blind
A victim of life too weak to be king

Out of control - My life is a chamber of tears, fear and hate
Out of control - Help me to gain the crown, here is my fate

Wherever I may roam there will be hate and pain
eye for eye, tooth for tooth. respect is what I gain
I look up to Mr Crowley. evil powers now unite!
I will be your darkest nightmare
my life is a fatal fight

Just give me a sign
Take on my mind and let me stay blind
A victim of life too weak to be king

"listen up my friend you just cry for a hand
but you only pretend that you`re bad. Now!"

We`ll take on my mind

Although after actually reading the lyrics rather than just hearing the song it kinda lost it's affect what with the "too weak" stuff.
