The memories of running around that beach with full camera control and exploring Traverse Town give me goosebumps to this day. It blew my fucking mind.

I was very impressed when I first saw Virtua Fighter, it was the first real 3D game I've seen and it looked like sci-fi to me at the time. I also remember being super impressed the first time I played FFVII and got to the overworld map, an entire 3D world to explore!

The last time I've been super impressed with a game was HL2 I think, it looked amazing and the physics were incredible.

Man the french dub was terrible. Well, it was funny at least.

The weird thing about MGS games is that they made multi-language voice acting only for the first game. After it they scrapped that down and made them only english and japanese.

Not that I really mind because I'm kind of a "always prefer the original voice acting language" kind of nerd and I know english quite well but it really puts things in perspective.

Eli Martin

I guess it works if you play the game like a low budget Z movie. Which given Kojima's abysmal writing is pretty appropriate I suppose.

megaman X2 the robot guy looks 3D as fuck, totally floored
Any 3D on SNES
loved jurassic Park, Toy Story, Star Fox
fzero too, but I didn't really appreciate the framerate until N64, where its 60 fps definitely stood out
cg animation in portraits of mario kart 64 and mario party 1 looked impossible
goldeneye having loads of enemy death animations depending on how you shot them
mario vs dk gba looking 3d, pissed me off when g4 compared it to sonic advance and said mario had worse graphics
first gc game played was melee
first level i saw was dreamland, got gotted by the reflections

What about the 3d look on golden sun. Shit boy, that game still holds up. Also I used to be impressed if the water reacted if you shot at it. Honestly, I used to be impressed if I turned the console off and the game saved. Most my SNES games I had to beat in one sitting because I they wouldn't save.

Also setpiece moments where a chopper falls in front of you used to be impressive. Or taking down one down via rpg used to be a big holy shit moment.

only RPG I ever played was Pokemon growing up
play Disgaea 1's shitty DS port on my toaster laptop at age 13
really like the world and the characters, the game being set in hell really appealed to my edgy teen self
play a bit and unlock the option to use Specials
Etna can use the move "Impaler"
what's this do
my fucking face when seeing her leap into the air, clutch the spear and crash down on the enemy unit's head with it before doing a sick backflip to the panel behind her
I was pretty much hooked on the series after that. It's been almost 10 years and I'm still a Disgaea fanatic.

If you're just playing through Disgaea's story, item world is an absolute non requirement outside the obligatory tutorial. If you want better equips, simply pass the "More Expensive Stuff" bill at the Dark Assembly.
People call it da grindin game but grinding isn't requried for the main story either so long as you manage your party's exp division properly. Think of it like Pokemon, you wouldn't train 10 different Pokemon during the main game right? The same applies to Disgaea, try to keep your party between 5 to 7 units and you'll never be under leveled again.

RTS on Game Boy Color

Best part? It's actually a pretty fun game. Very simple in that you only get 3 types of basic units (Worker, Archer, Warrior), the VERY rare Dragon, 1 defensive building, and buildings for increasing pop. cap

But you also got collectible wizards that all had varying abilities. One would just light a unit on fire. Another would just freeze him. One could turn a unit into a chicken. Another could fuck up an area with a tornado. My favorite was the one that gave a unit the plague so they became a walking bomb. When they exploded, they would spread the disease to every unit nearby. It would FUCK UP armies.

Game even had two different campaigns where you played as the humans or the beasts. At the end of the mission, your leftover units would be added to a running stock that you could use to battle your friend.

Massive injustice that the sequel was cancelled. If I had an ounce of talent, I'd like to make a spiritual sequel to it.

Yuna in FFX. Impress doesn't cut it. She's literally the closest thing we've ever come to an archetypal representation of the perfect woman.

Gentle and friendly, but not overly naive
Knows how and when to say no and put a line in the sand
Considerate of other people's feelings, but still considers her own as well
Knows that people depends on her, and always tries to stay strong and stand tall both in leadership as well as support
Doesn't use own hardships as an excuse to put other people down
Forgiving to honest mistakes, but remembers betrayal
Modest, wholesome, and collected. Sees that life is more than instantaneous pleasure, and will sacrifice the present for the future, a sign of wisdom.

I could go on. I have spend my entire youth looking for the closest approximation to Yuna I could possibly find. Every other female character stand in the shadow of Yuna.

Then X-2 happened and turned the woman into a fucking caricature of a teen girl refusing to grow up
