@moderatetrouble: Dayum, you really know your stuff; it's a fascinating branch/marriage of music and technology, much like the talkbox was -- I've become a bit obsessed with it over the last few years.

I have some software called VocalSynth2 which is packed with powerful voice modulation options that can make you sound like Daft Punk, Kavinsky, etc. I might play around with that and see how Miku I can get with it before splashing out on V4, but it'll be worth the money if I can't get that unique sound from my current suite of VSTs.

Oh, and I'll be glad to share some of my music with you when it's done! I feel your input would be valuable on it.

@moderatetrouble: Oh SHIT, I might need to get in on this vocaloid software. I have tonnes of Miku-like songs already in the works, so this would really bring them together.

Thanks for the info!

You guys don't know how deeply happy it makes me to see Soul Blade rank so highly on this list. I remember being dragged to a pawn shop when I was five years old to look at some bargains by my mum, and saw this game lit up in a display case alongside some other PS1 gems. It screamed to me that I needed it, and my mum said sure, despite the £25 price tag.

When I got it home and saw that fucking intro, I was so content with my life and my purchase, and then experiencing each of the awesome, imaginative stages one after the other without a single dud was just pure magic. I loved the simplicity of them -- stone platform + clean, beautiful background + animated element -- and that ethos of simple but clean is found in the mechanics, too. The soundtrack is also fantastic. I'm glad it soared into sixth place without a hurdle, because I never heard anyone but me talking about this game at school in the UK.

When I went to America in '99, one of the arcades had Soul Edge, and I couldn't believe it; it was my favourite game in a huge machine! (I'd never seen an arcade cabinet before). I met this cool group of teens and twenty somethings who were surprised such a little kid who could barely reach the buttons knew any of Siegfried's moves. One of them bet me his cup of quarters that I couldn't beat him, and I felt like a grown-up for the first time ever, it was rad. I absolutely destroyed him.

This and Tekken 3 are still my all-time favourites of the '90s fighters.

I think the Ultimate Spider-Man game with its awesome comic look was the best game before the newest one, with great fan service, swinging, and vibe, but I also enjoyed Shattered Dimensions for its interesting spanning of universes from Amazing to 2099. Spider-Man 2 was the absolute king in terms of traversal, 'til the newest one did it all so, so, so much better.

Insomniac's will be the number 1 for a long time. Overall, Spider-Man 2 isn't even in the top five spidey games IMO. The PS1 games, Shattered, Ultimate, and Spider-Man PS4 are vastly superior as packages.

When I first played ME I shouted, "That's Susie from Rugrats!" about that girl in the consort's building saying she has a brother in the army on Earth, and I shouted it again when I spoke to Macha Doyle. She's done voices in so much, though, it's ridiculous.

Oh, I've never seen this one. Of all the movies I did watch, the three I really enjoyed were Fusion Reborn, The Legendary Super Saiyan, and Battle of Gods.

I don't remember Tekken 1 having such great music; that King George Island track is really doing it for me. Playlist!

@shiztoid: So go to school, go to church, go to prison, go to work, go to carnivale, go to bed -- are those fine and dandy, but go to hospital is the worst?

If that's what you meant, I don't get it, my man. If anything, go to the hospital makes less sense because it makes it sound like there's only one they could be admitted to. "I need to go/went to a hospital," is fine, but a bit formal, and so unlike those other phrases we say constantly that I mentioned.

Poor writing, even worse voice acting, utterly unoriginal vision of the future, and ridiculous animations, but I can't pretend the premise itself isn't appealing, despite some obvious inspiration from certain Asimov works. I also love the look and music.

Certainly not a day-one purchase, but, I dunno... Seems like it could get going and win me round.

I admire Alex for not ragging on this game's blatant janky edges, few and far between as they are. He's clearly digging the lore and "ooh, space" aspect enough to cut it some slack, because it's still a classic.

However, I would be totally okay with Vinny looking up the better planets to land on, and which ones are just bland shooting galleries/excuses for fetch quests, and avoid those. Maybe that is against the spirit, but there's a lot of rough stuff amid the occasionally quite cool, Star Trek-ass side content. I think that would be an unpopular decision, but just something to ponder maybe?

This was a great episode, though.
