My top five albums, without repeating artists, in no particular order...

Gorillaz - Demon Days
Protomen - Hope Rides Alone (self-titled album)
Alice Cooper- Brutal Planet
Pendulum - Hold Your Colour

If it counts, my #5 is the Donkey Kong Country 2 OST by Dave Wise. But if not, then...

Halestorm - The Strange Case Of...

Halestorm's songs in particular have helped me through some rough patches, and The Strange Case Of has most of my favorite songs, though the middle of the album itself isn't really my thing.

I respect your opinions, Keane, but Super Metroid goes higher on the list than Earthbound.

I was all ready to argue, and I do disagree, but that is a pretty legit choice.

I love the Protomen. I had to limit myself to one album per artist, or otherwise I'd have both regular Protomen albums, AND The Cover Up.

I love this song. It made the water levels bearable. And it is so, so chill.

DKC2 may have a slightly better soundtrack but DKC1 is the better game IMO. All 3 are great though.

I actually thought 2 was a little smoother. Also, I thought the secrets were handled a little better in 2.

smoother? Like the framerate or the game design?

Game design. I'll admit, it's probably nostalgia talking, but things felt more perfected with 2. Diddy and Dixie felt more... deliberate, more like they filled similar but distinct niches. And since Diddy was faster, but took more precise control and you likely lost him first, it acted as a sort of dynamic difficulty.

Also, better boss variety than just "jump on the giant version of a normal enemy".

There was just so much bullshit in DKC2. It was more difficult but every time I died I was like "well, gently caress that." DKC1 is easier but I think it's a loooot smoother.

It's not just you. 2 is definitely considered the best of the three Super Nintendo DKCs. It's a combination of things; level design, variety of stages, music, and the fact that DKC2 rewards you for speed. Spawns are deliberately placed to be in the perfect position for running as fast as you can. No waiting required.

Lava Lagoon and Glimmer's Galleon can suck dicks though.

I will absolutely admit that DKC2's difficulty makes a jump once lava starts showing up in regularity, and then another pretty significant jump right around Krazy Kremland, and I could never really get past that as a kid.

Hey don't present your opinion as a consensus! I've actually heard a multitude of people say 3 is the best. Even I think 3 is better than 2. Even though the original is the best one

I feel like 3 tries too hard to innovate, and by the end of the game, it's pretty bleh. Very "here's the new setpiece/gimmick". The giant barrel boss was loving brilliant, though. I liked the non-standard "damage" you did, though. (Feeding him items so he burped himself backwards into a hole, before he pushed you back into the hole on the opposite side.)

To be fair I liked most of the too-late SNES games. Yoshi's Island is my favorite video game of all time.
