Play a Hideki Kamiya game. They still have unlockables. Sometimes they are even different characters with their own movesets. He knows whats up. Or maybe play a DS Castlevania. Plenty of reward there and you get other modes/ characters once you are done.

I want a Fire Emblem game that is one really really long level.

I'm no expert, I haven't played it, maybe you have. But I heard Fire Emblem Genealogy of the Holy War has 12 chapters but all of them are huge.

@the_hiro_abides: I don't know. They seemed sort of serious.

@dungbootle:Yeah those games did have a lot of weird stuff. I want to say there was a steam punk Frankenstein... but that makes sense. That's just part of the series, you fight a big bat, Medusa, 2 mummies, Frankenstein, DEATH, and Dracula as bosses in the first game. Why were there Mummies and Medusa in Christian inspired Europe?

@riostarwind

:That sounds like some weird magic stuff though. Do you look out while you're climbing the clocktower and see Earth? Kind of as an inverse on that Castlevania trope? It's not like Jonathan and Charlotte got on rocket to go to space or anything, right?

Brad and Ryan have mentioned that one of the later DS Castlevanias had a Cyborg Dracula and that you go to space at some point. I've played most of Portrait of Ruin, all of Aria of Sorrow, and all of Order of Eclasia, so is it in Dawn of Sorrow or the other two GBA games or is the cyberdracula and Space all just bullshit?

@secondpersonshooter: Yes the weird dream vampire thing. That was a cool easter egg too. But everything else is still in tact.

@ducksworth: Yes it does. Glad they included those.

Fire Emblem Awakening is amazing. I've played 2 entries in the series before Awakening and it is by far my favorite.

Just don't rely too much on Frederick and make sure you let your weaker guys get the killing blow. Really on Casual and normal you should have no problems getting though the game. At that point it may be impossible to fail.

The HD collection is flawless other than the fact that they took out an easter egg in 3, and some of the bonus stuff like Skateboarding, secret theatre and Snake Vs. the Monkey were taken out. Nothing vital.

Peace Walker is a lot of fun too.

Take your time with those games though. A lot of fun easter eggs.

@noobsauceg7: That's how I am. I like all the MGS games I've played. I think there are arguments that any of any of the games can either be the best or worst in the series.

How I'd rank them is: MGS2>MGS3> MGS1> MGS Peace Walker> MGS4. MGS4 is fine, there are just some dumb story stuff I don't like that cheapens the previous 3 games. For a straight forward emotional story MGS1 and 3 are probably the best. MGS2 is probably the most thoughtful and interesting, that's why I like it the most.
