Video Game spring cleaning.

It's that time of year, folks! Spring means spring cleaning, and besides tidying up the homestead, I've decided to do a little bit of console gaming cleaning; brought on by the fact that I picked up Resident Evil 4 for the Wii again for the first time in years, played it for a few seconds, died, and decided I'll never be good enough to beat it! 
 
I'm thinking of selling a boatload of games. I could definitely use the money and the shelf space, and it isn't like these will ever truly be collectors items (and with the absolute shelf life of disc-based media, none of it will even be playable in the far-flung future). Here's the list of crap I've compiled thus far.



 

1. Resident Evil 4

The Wii and Gamecube versions.

2. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

The Wii version. I just never got around to finishing it, and don't feel the inclination to do so.

3. Animal Crossing: City Folk

The... Wii version. Mayhaps I should sell my Gamecube version too? I still own and want to keep the DS version, which is arguably still the best in the series.

4. Sonic Mega Collection

The Gamecube compilation that I don't really need since I own a Genesis and the original games.

5. BioShock

The 360 version. I still own the superior PC version.

6. Prototype

The 360 version. Never finished it, don't want to.

7. Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts

Still contemplating this one. It's a great game; it just never hooked me.

8. Grand Theft Auto IV

The 360 version. Making my paid DLC useless, but I never intend to play the game again.

9. Need for Speed: Most Wanted

The 360 version. Got it for free from a friend, never felt like playing it.

10. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter

The 360 version. Good game, but old by today's standards. Very dated.

11. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

The 360 version. I own the PC version with all of the DLC. Not much of a point in keeping this edition around.

12. Tales of Vesperia

The 360 version. Never got around to finishing it; definitely inferior to Symphonia, in my opinion.

13. Fable II

Sorry, Molyneux, but it was an amazing one-time ride. Not interested in playing it again, nor finishing that first DLC I bought (*sigh*).

14. Mirror's Edge

360 version. I played the first two level and never picked it up again.

15. Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams

The Xbox version of Silent Hill 2. Probably a great game, but I can't play it.

16. Eternal Sonata

The 360 Version. Awesome, awesome game, but I've got no intention of playing it again.

17. Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions

It's my favorite Final Fantasy game, but I don't see myself sinking any more time into it.

18. Lumines: Puzzle Fusion
19. WipEout Pure
20. Worms: Open Warfare

The PSP version.

21. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories

GTA done wrong on the PSP.

22. Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower

I can't play fighting games.

23. Twisted Metal: Head-On
24. Hotel Dusk: Room 215

Not the kind of game I like to play on the DS.

25. Metroid Prime: Hunters

Good concept, not incredible execution. I never finished it.

26. Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords

The DS version. Good game; again, I don't see myself playing it again.

27. Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

The worst Mario and Luigi game.

28. Super Princess Peach

Mreh.

29. Sonic Rush

I want to forget the last decade or so of Sonic.

30. Advance Wars: Dual Strike

I love tactical games, but this is one tactical game I suck at.

31. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4

The GBA version. It's a surprisingly great version of the game. No complaints.

32. Mario Kart: Super Circuit
33. Army Men: Turf Wars

What? I got this for free and obviously never played it.

34. Namco Museum

The GBA version.

35. Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure

Another freebie.

36. Pac-Man Collection
37. Dark Arena

I like the list :) Btw, I think you should pick up Prototype again. I personally loved that game :) it's fantastic. Agreed on Advance Wars, I've beaten 1, 2, and Days of Ruin. I never got Dual Strike, how was it?

Prototype: I liked what I played of it. Liked, but not loved. It could make for an interesting sequel. The problem is that I've got somewhat limited time, and I don't really feel like using it on that game :\. I also need cash.
 
Dual Strike: I think I played about 10 missions before I started getting my butt stomped. I think it just gets a little too complicated compared to what I've played of the past games. Since I suck at it, I was finding the AI controlled enemies in the single player campaign starting off with pure advantage over me. I didn't play enough to give a real opinion of it, and I can barely remember what I did play of it.

Prototype is at least worth finishing in my opinion. I've beaten it twice, and I'm playing through again when I have the time. As for Dual Strike, all the Advance Wars games are hard as balls D: I've realized that lol. Fortunately, for the most part, the AI is fair and does not have a handicap or anything, and the levels can be beaten, it just takes time. Another good game
