Level 5's final PS2 epos is my pick - Rogue Galaxy. I'm not much of a retrogamer. Life's too short to look back, so that's pretty much the horizon of what I'm willing to go back to. I've held off buying it, in order to pick it up on the cheap somewhat after release. It never got cheaper, and then the PS2 generation kinda slipped my mind completely. I do regret it bitterly.

Loading Video...

The game has that classic Level 5 cell-shading sheen, but with a slightly less child-friendly art design. I think it totally holds up in that way, and it's suppossed to be huge and quite complex. The realtimey combat system looks like good fun too. I'd love to play it. I don't know how to go about it though. Should I get into PS2 emulation? Is that something I'm okay with? Do I hope for a PSN re-release?

Anyways - name a game you've never played, yet STILL want to play - that released as far back in the past as possible...

I've never played Pong and I think it would be cool to play a game or two.

Either Day of the Tentacle or Grim Fandango, whichever is older. Other than those two, I can't really think of any that I haven't played that I still want to.

I started to play WOW when the second expansion came out but I wish I started to play it when it launched, it seemed from what people told me amazing and what i wanted from a MMO. 12 HOURS OF AV!

Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. I had the former but didn't get to play much of it.

Eternal Darkness is the oldest one currently coming to mind. I did get a hold of a copy a couple months ago, so there's actually a chance it will happen.

Eternal Darkness, played, and watched, did not finish. I still have Dark Souls that I have not opened yet. The one I feel mostly guilty for is The Lost Vikings on the SNES. Me and my brothers got to the final level.... Then they both moved away and I promised them I would not finish it without them. Now I kinda regret that.

I think Super Metroid would be my answer. Heard so many great things about it over the years but never owned a Super Nintendo. So I guess that said, I have quite a few SNES games to choose from. When I get a Wii (I know I'm a bit behind) I plan on getting both the Kirby and Mario Collections that came out on it, and then getting Super Metroid, Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island, the Donkey Kong Country games, and a bunch of others not made by Nintendo. I might start a thread asking what games to get when I get one, hopefully later this year.

Valkyria Chronicles is one of the main ones I can think of. I was going to get it a couple years ago at EB games when it was $40 or something but decided against it.

I might finally play it now, though. Found a copy at Wal-Mart for $20 so I picked it up. I don't know when I'll get to it - maybe after Christmas.

The PS2 Kingdom Hearts games. I love the premise but I started gaming during this console generation and have been unable to justify buying a PS2 just to play two games.

Braid comes to mind, I've never played that game and I feel bad for not playing it, especially since I've played Super Meat Boy and Fez. Of course there are tons of games older than this, but most of those are when I was young and not actively seeking out new video games.

I desperately want to play Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango.

Also, System Shock 2 would be very nice.

Reading people's responses, I found this in the first five.

You'll probably never be able to unless they rerelease it. I want to REPLAY Grim Fandango for the 100th time but it just runs like shit.

My answer to the topic would be Planescape Torment. I've started it about 3 times but never gotten more than an hour into it (I've really done nothing in it). I desperately want to finish it but I just don't think I have it in me. I really want to read all that text and do all those sidequests and dig into all those RPG elements but I just don't think I have the patience/mindset/mental ability. Maybe one day.

J.B. Harold Murder Club - because I love mysteries and the game was fairly controversial for its time.

Ethnic Cleansing - I don't support nazi ideas so I refuse to pay for it. I want to experience it to actually see how alienating it really is.

RapeLay - similar reasons. The fact that this game even exists bothers me a bit, but without actually experiencing it it's hard to say what sort of enjoyment people get from it.

If I hadn't already played them, Wizardry and Akalabeth would be there. Looking through some folders, the oldest game that I own that I want to play is Phantasie from '85. I played a bunch of these games emulated from my dad's copies years ago, but never this one for some reason. Probably because of the double misspelling, though and the battle screen is really archaic despite other games getting it right for years before it.

The Legend of Zelda and Mario 64. Shame on me, been playing games since the NES first rolled out and I missed both of those iconic titles!

Though I never had a 64 when it first came out, got one a few years back for giggles. Worth it.

A bit of a different one for me: Starship Titanic. I remember seeing my dad play this when I was a kid and LOVED it. I have a copy but cant get it to work with modern systems. Still apparently one of the hardest puzzley adventure games there is because of the conversation system.

Unrelated to this, I tried it on emulation direct from my own copy this weekend . It ran well without any tweaking but the weapons had black boxes surrounding them which was incredibly distracting.

For my answer, there is a copy of Burning Rangers for the SEGA Saturn in my garage that I eyeball regularly. On my laptop there's and installed copy of Planescape: Torment I have yet to boot.

Custer's Revenge for the Atari 2600..

Nah, But I would like to play Resident Evil for the Sega Saturn. I found a copy of that and a Saturn at a retro games shop but they wanted 200 bucks for both.. I couldn't justify paying that much for a Saturn and one game. Sega Saturn's are hard as shit to find in my town.. that's why they're so expensive, and I've never bothered looking online for one.
