Although I love my zeldas and marios like everyone else, somehow my best memories are with the lesser known games:

1. Crystalis (Hands down my all time fave game.)
2. Final Fantasy (the original cause for my love of RM.)
3. Battle of Olympus
4. Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest (I dunno why a lot of people hated this. It’s a good game.)
5. Rygar
6. River City Ransom
7. Dr. Chaos
8. Baseball Simulator 1000

Some games that are pretty atrocious include Castle Quest and Fester’s Quest. But because I got fooled by the box art and paid good mula for them, I gritted my teeth and played through them. Now they are fond childhood memories. :p

I’ve seen a few SMB 3. It’s definitely a favorite of mine as well. I also really loved Kirby Adventure. LoZ, of course, but I was a little bit older when I got into Zelda.

The Dragon Warrior/Quest series, Final Fantasy 1, Musashi No Bouken, Clash at Demonhead, and Castlevania 2. (Yes Castlevania 2. It's not that bad. I don't remember anyone bashing it until AFTER the AVGN video).

Super Mario Bros 3 is easily the best NES game imo. I also REALLY like Castlevania, but I've never actually beaten the whole thing (confession). I found a mod that lets you move while you're jumping, so I might attempt to play it again.

Honestly, most NES games are too difficult for me to enjoy. I play games for 2 things, mainly. Story, and fun. If I'm not having fun, I usually won't keep playing it unless there is a good story. A lot of NES games don't have much of either, at least in my opinion. It kind of had to be that way due to the limitations, but to me they are kind of a product of a bygone era at this point.

Probably just...

1. Super Dodgeball (I love the goofy graphics and silliness of killing each other with a ball).
2. River City Ransom (same goofy graphics and silliness... pretty sure it's the same company).
3. Sky Kid.
4. Ikari Warriors
5. Super Off-Road (I love racing games with this perspective and I wish they were still made this way, the "level up" type mechanics in souping up your vehicle were great as well. More games need this).
6. Jurassic Park (I came close to beating this one a lot of times just through persistence and memorization. It was a lot of fun and actually required a lot of skill to do well in).

it's always been Mother and Castlevania II for me, always been fond of the visuals and soundtrack of these games.

Finished that egg-sitting mini-game I mentioned here a couple weeks back. Now to fix the weather system so it doesn't rain indoors while you're playing it. >.> A simple fix in itself; leave it to me to take it as an excuse to completely revamp the time/weather/lighting system from scratch.
I'm really tempting to pre order cyberpunk 2077... should I do it or not :/ I really want to play the game but don't want to take a big hit to my saving because of it
So I need to come up with quite a few action sequences.
Was stressing about this plugin earlier, but pretty happy with how its looking now! Purple makes it pop more too!! :)
