psst. this list needs an update, or be removed. cause I know you're playing starcraft right now.
You should do the crushing run in UC2, pretty brutal, but still a lot of fun. Except for Lazaravich.
I was in the same boat with Braid. Desperately wanted to beat it without using a guide. Finally do so and was really thankful I didn't look anything up. The hardest part about that game (and other games of its ilk) is that you'll come upon a puzzle and approach it from a certain direction. Then even if that direction doesn't seem quite right and/or just flat out doesn't work it's sometimes hard to shift gears, forget about it, and start over from scratch. That was the case for me in several of the puzzles. Amazingly rewarding game, though, with fantastic visuals, music, and gameplay. Good luck!
I have been waiting YEARS for your final fantasy IV DS review. I hope you finish that game soon so we can get your awesome review of this game.
2. I am still expecting an FFIV review any time now...
3. If you can beat it on hard, you beat it on Crushing. Just conserve your ammo and don't save big guns for later sequences too often. It is never worth it; always take care of the nearest threat first, any way you can.
6. But... there are FOUR RPGs on this list!
