  1. I like Dark Soul 1, it's a really fun and deep experience, with engaging combat and an interesting world with bits of lore hidden, which you can read and piece together what happened, the memorable bosses, challenging but rewarding gameplay, and an engrossing and intricate character customization system. It's probably one of my favorite games ever made. Top 5, definitely.

  2. Nothing tops Super. Nothing. I'll post my thoughts I had made on another site:

     

    Super Metroid is a side-scrolling action adventure game that released for the SNES in 1994. It released and quickly became a fan favorite not only on the SNES, but in general, and is considered by many to be the greatest game ever made. 

    It is a true masterpiece, and my favorite video game. Metroid is my favorite series, and this game perfectly encapsulates everything great about the series. Atmosphere, gameplay, music, bosses, level design, it's all perfect. This is a game I can come back to over and over, and have fun every time, always trying to make a new sequence break, and beat my previous run time.

    The gameplay is tight, and very satisfying to pull off a hard sequence break, and there's just something about the wall-jumping that's fun. The boss battles are incredible, from the Spooky Phantoon, to the towering Kraid, to the intimidating Ridley, to the terrifying Mother Brain, each fight is amazing and special, all have some challenge and are memorable, even the disturbing Crocomire fight.

    The music is atmospheric and charming, each is special in their own way, from the low and slow paced Red Soil Brinstar, to the upbeat and catchy overgrown green brinstar, to the haunting and mysterious Rocky Maridia, to the imposing Lower Norfair theme, and the memorable boss tracks, all are great in their own way, and perfectly capture the tone of the game, and each area.

    Level design is also incredible. visuals are still fantastic, at least in my opinion, for a SNES game 23 years old. It's aged tremendously well, and the level design is some of the best, you can exploit the environment to sequence break, and finish the game faster. It's also a very non-linear game, you aren't told what to do, or where to go, no hints or tips. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Super Metroid is amazing, and the very core of what makes a Metroid game. Sure, Fusion and Zero Mission are technically superior in gameplay and design, but they both lack the charm of Super. Fusion loses points for being way more linear and dialogue heavy, and Zero Mission, while regaining some of the core mechanics of Super, like non-linearity and wall-jumping, it lacks the charm and subtlety of Super. I can't really explain it, but I also feel the controls are somewhat inferior. I also prefer the somber and less alive nature of Super.

    Super Metroid is a pinnacle of game design, and a true masterpiece. I can't say it enough, but I really like this game.

    As much as I wonder why would politics be involved in a kid show, it's in Qiviut's own right to believe so.

    I'm not saying calling him out on this is bad either but since it's clearly getting out of hands, I'd like all parties involved to end the argument here.

    I don't get it, I didn't see anyone attacking him. I just think he can't take criticism. I'll drop it though.

    It's just too bad that rumors are indicating Tempest will be redeemed.

    If it's as half-assed and ridiculous as the other so-called 'redemption's' in this show...

    It'll likely be my last straw with this show, it's BS, and this fandom in general that clearly can't accept opinions.

    Why don't you spare us and leave now? All you ever do is complain.

  5. Sonic 06 for obvious reasons. Shadow the Hedgehog for similar reasons.

    Metroid Other M.

    What an atrocious game. It fucked up Samus's character, had very clunky third person controls, and the first person mode was awful, story was filled with contrivances and continuity errors. Sakamoto fucked up big time with this game, and it will take a lot for me to forgive him. It was an insult to my favorite video game franchise. (And then Federation Force comes around and rubs salt in the wound, I refuse to play that game.)
