WAIT. Also this should be a poll. I also have an OG black 3DS and I play games just fine. With the DS I had the OG as well and upgraded until the DSi came out. Skipped the Lite altogether and man that felt good.

Only Silver IV :( I want to get to gold for the skin like every year but the highest I've been is Silver II. I don't play much but go ahead and add me if you like I don't add random people but a fellow duder is no stranger.

@extomar: Thats right he did. It's been a while. He should have used it sooner!

I also LOVED the finale. Have no idea why people hate this show so bad. All seasons have been a blast and yes the first season was a bit rushed but they did what they could with the time they had. I think they didn't know there was going to be more past that first season.

The only small nitpick I can think of is when the hell did Mako learn to lightning bend?

@eder: I'm really not, if anything, I very rarely agree with Jeff's opinions. Go back and play the first sonic game. It really doesn't play well, especially the PAL version, it's all swimmy and slow. The way the first level works also fools you into thinking, gotta go fast, because the second level just has a bunch of waiting.

I don't want to make this yet another Sonic thread so this will be the last thing I do say. I do go back and play Sonic 1 very regularly and its still a ton of fun. Sorry you got to play the 50hz version if you did that looks like ass.

Yes the game is about going fast but thats not all. It's a platformer first so you'll be doing some jumping and other stuff. It's not a racing game those are the ones you should expect to be going blazing fast and even those have also variants because just going fast isn't enough sometimes. Also the speed factor was vastly improved in the sequels.

There is plenty of waiting in many great classics and we don't seem to give those any beef. Mario games have the autoscrolling levels, Ocarina has you waiting to hit enemies, RPGs have you wait for your turn etc etc.

To keep this on topic lets see.... Oh I know Aladdin SNES >> Aladdin Genesis and Contra Hard Corps >> Contra 3

The Sonic series has never been good.

Heres mine: Everyone who says this is jumping on the Jeff bandwagon.

Extra: Sonic Adventure 2 is a fantastic game. I'm not just talking out my ass I S ranked that sucker (GT: Hotsp0t)

From experience, I'll say make sure that you make a list/spreadsheet or something with games that you want to collect. Do research, watch YouTube clips, and make a list. Even if it's long, have one. I spent a year or two buying every single retro game I could find and ended up with a bunch of stuff that took up space on my shelf and wasn't worth anything and wasn't good at all. Stuff like old golf games or stuff that was just garbage.

A list is a must. It will make what you buy have a reason. For example I'm a big Sonic fan (they see me rollin) so I decided to get every single Sonic game I can get my hands on and every Sega system. Since you are going for every Nintendo system you could go for every Mario, Zelda or whatever. On what version of console to get: Why not both?

We've seen this effect a few times now where the company that is "on top" or "winning" gets arrogant and thinks that just because people favored them the generation before they can get away with anything. Examples: N64 vs Playstation and PS3 vs X360.

The Nintendo 64 is a bad system with only 3 worth while games (Super Mario 64, LoZ OoT and Mario Party 2), and apart from the 3 listed games the system and library should not be remembered fondly.

Also fuck that controller with its bullshit analog stick.

FACT! Preach it brother!!
