Been playing games since I was a kid. Mainly portables until recently. Have a PS3, Wii, DS, Mac and own games for all formats. Into all genres, but mainly JRPGs, fighting, and party games. Don't get to play as much as I'd like, but I can throw down with the best of them. Grad school is a huge time sink.
PS3- Mass Effect 2
Wii- Waiting for Skyward Sword
DS- Dragon Quest IX
Mac- Papers for class
iPhone- Angry Birds
As I mentioned in my intro blog, I didn't have a television or non-portable gaming console during my childhood. As such, there are fairly large gaps in my gaming background. Although I religiously read issues of "Nintendo Power" during my elementary school days, I never played the SNES games so prominently featured. I'd like to correct this problem and I'd like your help in doing so.
What I'd like from you is suggestions of Super Nintendo games of which you have fairly strong pangs of nostalgia. In return, I'm starting a series in which I play through these classic games with a fresh set of eyes, research a little bit into their history, and provide commentary as to how they currently stand up. I think it would be an interesting juxtaposition and something which would be fun to write.
A few caveats:
1. Super Nintendo games only
2. If it's Mario, Zelda, or Final Fantasy, I've probably already played it
3. Preferably in English, but I'd be willing to play a Japanese-only game if it isn't too text heavy (i.e. I won't be slogging my way through some untranslated JRPG, but I'd be down with something Mario-esque that's not in English)
Thanks in advance for your suggestions,
Stu da Kris
