How long did he spend with New Super Mario Bros.? I ask because I came into this thread being ready to suggest either that or Super Mario 3D World which honestly are both pretty great games in teaching kids how to play and with not overly complicated controls. I watched my young nephew basically struggle a ton in his first hour or so with the game but after a bit of help he was going nuts and was basically solving problems all on his own. Honestly I think it's something Nintendo does a great job at, slowly introducing complexity into their games.

I mean this in the least disparaging way possible but man that sure looks like a Mass Effect character.

The gameplay is all there, but I can't help but feel this wasn't the revolutionary game visually anyone was hoping for.

Not sure that anybody actually thought that though? But thank you for informing me about your subjective opinion as if it were fact. I think the game looks pretty fantastic, framerate issues aside.

This is the best news! I really loved that game. Had a fantastic battle system that actually required some thought in its variability and a cool and surprisingly not incoherent/plot-hole ridden time travel story. Highly recommend that y'all check it out if you can!

Reading this has made me remember just how weird X gets. X gon' give it to you indeed. I am incredibly excited for this series of blogs. Great combat system though.

@retrometal: That happens like. 4 times in that whole post. I had to go back and check because it didn't register to me at all as something frequent in what I read.

You're making this sound pretty good OP. Thanks for the write-up, might just have to go and pick this up.

@cheetoman: P3 FES is a superior version to P3P in my opinion so consider checking it out anyway.

Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love is a pretty cool tactics game with a combat system similar to Valkyria Chronicles but with dating sim elements mixed in. It's weird and totally not an excellent game but I enjoyed it well enough. It also came out on the Wii but the versions are the same with the PS2 actually having the additional Japanese voice track.

SSX Tricky and SSX 3 are both great and the fact that they haven't been remastered yet is a grave injustice. Tricky is probably better.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is the best.

Viewtiful Joe and its sequel are both great 2D beat-em-up style games with style coming out the butthole.

God Hand is also a stylish 3D brawler game that kind of has super weird controls and honestly I'm not sure how well it'll hold up today but I loved this game.

Probably because his score, along with another outlet that gave it 3 out of 5 dropped the Metacritic rating from 98 to 97, which means Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 retains its crown as the highest metascore on the site. Theres a lot of dumb people out there.

This is actually kind of upsetting because that isn't even the best THPS game.

I would most definitely get a Chunithm cabinet, because that is probably the most fun rhythm game I've ever played. After that, maybe a Virtual On machine. Heck, realistically maybe it'd just be a 2nd Chunithm cabinet.

I don't think you're crazy for thinking it's 'heal-ian', but I do think you're kinda crazy for thinking it's 'high-rule' but not 'high-lian'. What would cause you to think the two would be pronounced differently?
