They do not seem to be that popular around here, but they are some of my favorite video games of all time. I have a special place in my heart for Master of Monsters on the Sega Genesis. It was a tactical RPG that I grew up with. You get to summon all these different monsters, including different types of dragons, minotaurs, serpents, lizards, Giants, Etc. If these monsters kill enough enemies, they get to evolve into a stronger monsters, a concept that this game did well before Pokemon.

I also find myself going back and playing Digimon story cyber sleuth hackers memory. While that game has its issues, it's become one of my favorite PS4 games. I bought it on sale for 15 bucks and pumped over a hundred hours into the game

It's not a Monster Collecting game, but a feature in an online game called Moshi Monsters that I used to play once upon a time. In it was a feature where you could collect these small bizarre creatures called Moshlings.

You would plant flowers and stuff in your home Garden to attract them. If you had a valid combination of fully-grown flowers, a new Moshling would show up and you can adopt them as Pets for your Monster! They don't do much besides for bragging rights, but clicking on them in their house makes them do a silly animation! It's a simple thing, but was still enjoyable!

I enjoyed the first Ni No Kuni and Persona 5 Royal. I also liked World of Final Fantasy.

I haven't played a lot of different ones, so I have to go with Pokémon Sapphire and Yokai Watch.

Honestly, the monster designs ruin it for me. Most of them look like they're suffering from mental damage or they just have really stupid ideas in general. Even the better designs are kinda meh.

Persona 5, Persona 4, and SMT III: Nocturne have been my favorites so far.

Oh man, how could I possibly forget about Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD. I still have not beaten that game, but I find myself constantly going back to that game, and it really is a blast to play. It's an action RPG with a monster collecting feature, and a lot of the monsters are pretty awesome.

Pokemon just strikes a chord with me with how it works, nothing else really hit it as hard yet.

Nexomon including Extinction, the Siralim games, Monster Sanctuary, even Rune Factory has some kind of monster collecting! And I love those games. Oh and Monster Harvest is pretty awesome too.

Nothing better than some Pokemon Gold/Silver, playing on a Gameboy Color with the worm light attachment playing in the night trying not to get caught.

Any of the SMT games, Pokémon, and the Dragon Quest Monsters series. I find a lot of people don't bring up that last one often.

It's a part of the 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue collection. It should also be in the All in One collection too.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Dream Eaters because you absolutely have to put the effort in to unlock their ability panels in order for Sora and Riku to pick up valuable abilities. I mean, you technically don't have to, but if you want specific abilities, you need to make the right Dream Eater and, iirc, have them as your active DE. Just a tad restricting.

One thing that I do find it odd is that the game was originally a 3DS game oh, and it had minigames that required the touchscreen. On the PlayStation 4 version, you have to use that weird pad between the Share and Options button like a touch screen. It is very counterintuitive.

The minigames are the primary way of grinding up the AP on your Dream Eaters. I can't say I recall having to use the touch pad being difficult, but it has been a while since I've played DDD.

aww man, color hex code #C4C4C4 doesn't work for the tint value in this scene I need something darker, which stinks just because I liked that one it was my favorite plastic explosive three times...#696969 (nice) should work better (WHY IS MY BRAIN LIKE THIS)
Tell it to me straight, doc. If I've been trying to piece together a "shorter" game to learn stuff outside of game jams... am I just running away from my WIP? :v
Well, I've got a party tomorrow, and my friends are coming over. I wanted to work a bit on the Fandom Scouts assets so I can be ready when that update arrives... in other news, Pizza Time Horror is getting a second teaser, and it shows Cabaret Helen's last performance before the location closed.
Also who used to be scared of Chuck E as a kid? I was! Now I love him!
