@mento: Oh yeah, I never even considered the Scrub League option. Even so, I'm still not sure it's got enough "OHHH SHIT!" factor compared to Tetris Battle Gaiden's engaging goofiness. But I'd still not complain if they gave it a crack anyway.
Also, I'd never heard of Hebereke's Popoon before! Which is a surprise, because it sounds like something dirty, and I'm normally across anything that sounds like something dirty.
I have a weird brain problem with the Shining Force games: any time someone mentions one, no matter which, I have a strange compulsion to play Shining in the Darkness.
Oh, man, such a tough question! The GameCube remake is so goddamn good; you're making me wanna dig the disc out and start up a new game! And I actually really enjoyed how lean and mean RE3 felt, with the Mercenaries mode being the oft-played cherry on top.
But I guess I gotta go with the first RE that I played, number 2. I got it at the same time as I got my PlayStation, and was just fascinated by the content of that game. Sadly, I forgot to buy a memory card for my new purchase, but decided I'd just keep playing and leave the console running...
Got to the alligator. Died. Fuck.
Next day, I went out and got a memory card, went home and fired up RE2 straight away. And I did it with zero resentment in my heart. Just loved that game to bits.
I can quote most of Pretty Woman by heart, I've seen the honestly-pretty-damn-rubbish 27 Dresses more times than any normal person should, and I think Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is the finest love story of our time. Also, I'm getting married tomorrow, and I can't wait (well, it's both nerves and excitement, but whatever).
