I never regretted missing out on the TG16 until I looked into the price of getting into it now.The prices on TG16 stuff is bonkers now.

I tried to buy this game at CompUSA but my dad put it back and on the ride home explained the bell curve to me and then bought me McDonald's.

well it's a titus game what did you expect

actually i shouldn't talk i bought the pc version of blues brothers (tho mainly i think because it was cheap and i had a decrepit 8088 with cga/hercules at the time so it was one of the few games still available that would run on my pc)

ffl3 wasn't horrible really. it was just a generic jrpg, just on the gameboy

nowhere near as good as ffl2 though

best thing about the video game crash: bargain bins full of atari poo poo for like forty cents

none of it was good or playable, but there was sure a lot of it

Holy loving christ this game looks awesome, but it's not actually very good in retrospect. It's better with 2 players tho.

I remember General Chaos as being like Valkyria Chronicles except instead of anime teens you had rambos and hulk hogans. Don't try to bullshit me it was exactly like that. Exactly.

Pretty much, and the Game Refuge house art style was in full flower at the time, making it extra good.

Runescape, Battle On/Adventure Quest, Gaia Online, Habbo Hotel, pretty much anything I played when I was like 12-16

Spent ages justifying Jet Force Gemini as a good game (even the multiplayer), but honestly in comparison to Rare's other shooters like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark or Conker's Bad Fur Day. It's no good or 'not for me'. Whatever.

I love the first one, loving other players over at the ski lift was the best part. I've never played the second, the listings online are like $250 AUD

i went to an irl video arcade a while back and played bad dudes. when i was a kid i thought i played it a lot and thought it was almost on par with double dragon and final fight and the other good beat em ups of the time but playing it again after all these years i finally realized it's one of the worst games ever made, much less one of the worst beat em ups ever made. it's trash

Jet Force Gemini seemed so cool at the time. Plus it was a Rare game during the time when Rare was at their peak. It's a shame it didn't turn out so well.

Survival Kids? I think that game is supposed to be pretty good actually

There is some very sensual touching going on in the cutscene there. i don't actually think it means anything sexual but it's cool how it contrasts with modern ideas of what bad ass stuff should be like. It even seems authentic to some kind of chivalric masculine touching from a tyme longe gone


final fight and shadow over mystara still pretty much rule but you can't attack when you are standing on an item and enemies are constantly dropping items and they have weird invincible frames and after a while you come to understand that these games are designed to keep you putting in quarters and maybe you are being rubed by an electric carnie as much as you are playing a fun game

I never even knew that was a thing? I got to the point where everyone's clothes changed. The Dog was a straight up tank! Do you need to redo each level and get every koala to beat or complete the game?
