Can someone explain to me why people hate Spyro 2 and Spyro 3? I played all three games as a kid and loved them but I never knew the second and third titles were considered inferior to the first.

What are the most technically impressive games on retro consoles/handhelds? Terranigma makes the best use of the SNES sound chip I've ever heard.

Harvest moon rom hack

A long long time ago I downloaded a rom hack of the SNES Harvest Moon. It changed all the character dialogue to swearing and other funny stuff. I have not since been able to find it anywhere. Any help bros?
Why is ghosts 'n goblins... 52 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Why is ghosts 'n goblins considered a classic? It's one of the worst designed games on the nes, it's more frustrating than fun, it has only one music track playing for the majority of the game, it has no continues or password system and it's full of randomized bullcrap enemy encounters. Yet it's in the top 200 best games on the NES and we still play it today. I still feel drawn to this game from time to time. Is it just the music? Is it the charm of the main character? Is it because we love the arcade version? What do you think? Feel free to disagree and leave your opinion.

In actuality, it's got impressive features that I can't say I've seen in another piece of hardware. Awesome accessories thread. What are your favorites?

This game is way better than I thought it would be. I was just expecting a mirrored version of Ocarina of Time but I was pleasantly surprised by the work they did. The newly designed dungeons add a fresh spin on an old classic.

So was this the best Contra game of all time? I believe so, and by quite a substantial margin.

Prisoner 2 IBM version?

Prisoner 2 IBM version? 3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hey guys, I was looking into some adventure games, and I stumbled across The Prisoner, an Apple II game. According to wikipedia, it was used by the CIA for training, but I figure that's probably just a rumor/marketing gimmick that got taken seriously after enough time passed. The remake was foolishly entitled Prisoner 2, and was also on the Apple II. However, wikipedia also makes note of an IBM version of P2. I've been trying to find any trace of it, but all I can find are basically empty entries on Mobygames and whatnot- I seriously cannot find a single screenshot of the IBM version, if it really exists. So, my questions for you fellas are: 1. Have you played Prisoner or Prisoner 2? What did you think about it? 2. Does anyone have any idea whether or not there really is an IBM version? If so, do you know whether or not anything was changed? Different graphics, different music, different whatever. 3. Can anyone else find screenshots, gameplay, or even a download link for that version?

ITT, things that you thought were BS until you figured "the trick" and then they become incredibly easy or at least a lot more fair. Pic related. The game tricks you into a fall sense of security by giving you the 1st 3-4 hits for free (he just comes to you and you can just punch without even moving), then after that, when Axl comes to you, he'll ALWAYS stop just short of your punch reach, rendering the previous tactic invalid, to further trick you, Axl's robot has slightly longer reach than yours. This is fucking hard to notice, specially if you're a kid, but once you know, you can repeat the same strategy as before, just slightly tapping forward before the punch to compensate. Also, there's a respawning 1up enroute to your robot, so as long as you get it everytime you can keep trying for as long as you want without reaching game over.
