A strong point indeed. In fact, I don't see any good reason to not play this.

This looks really good, nice find! Oh now I wish they release a remake.

Ok, there's really no order because I don't even wanna start to think about which I prefer over others even if theres obviously preferences.

1 : Resident Evil 4

This is the single-player game which I re-played the most. I played through it 3 times on gamecube, did it again on PS2 + the extra contents and then again on the HD remake on Xbox 360. It is by far the best game of the series, gameplay is imo perfect (yeah, better than the run and gun of RE6, because it removes so much of the tension), it is quite challenging, which is always a plus for me, has a good length (15 hours or so for a first run is pretty damn solid for this genre). Action-packed, but not too much since the horror feeling was still there, even after playing it several times. Such a classic!

2 : Metroid Prime

A shooter, an adventure or a platforming game? Metroid Prime does it all with a perfect pacing. I've done it 3 times, which put it just behind RE4 for the number of playthrough. It also feels like an open-world game, since theres different way to progress and you can always go back to previous places to search new upgrades and such. The soundtrack is also pretty damn solid for a non-rpg game.

3 : Starcraft : Broodwar

Ok, i'll say it now, i've never played the campaign. For me, this game is all about the multiplayer competitive scene. It is by far the most complicated online game and it requires a shit ton of skills and knowledge to be decent. Being a competitive person by nature, it's no surprise that I got hooked from 1999 to this day (well, I switched to Starcraft 2 last year). There's literaly tournaments of high quality to watch every single weeks, if that's your thing.

4 : Gears of War

I didn't bought the last of the series (Judgement), but I've played a tons of the first 3 and what got me addicted to this game was the unique 3rd person/cover system gameplay. I know theres a lot of 3rd person shooters now, but none does it as perfectly as GoW. The campaigns are pretty solid, although cliche, for a shooters, but it's all about the multiplayer again. Although i'm now a retired Gears players, I had good times with it! Having a team is a must, though, since it can be very frustrating to play with randoms teams since it requires quite a lot of teamplay for the genre.

5 : Lost Odyssey

Creator of the Final Fantasy series and Nobuo Uematsu on the soundtrack, this couldnt went wrong, right? Well, that's what I told myself and I wasn't disappointed. I know for a lot of people this was just another JRPGs, but for me it was an instant-classic. There was nothing really new, but being kinda conservative in my taste of games, I had no problem with it. Good story, awesome soundtrack, good variety of ennemies, beautiful and plenty of CGs, that's enough for me. I even cried a tiny bit at some point (ending of 1st CD or beginning of the 2nd, not sure anymore), which is a sign that the story is good.

6 : Final Fantasy IX

FFIX is the only other game which made my eyes wet (only at the ending this time, though. spoiler : theater scene, zidane show up, dagger go ape-shit and run to see him, awww). Beautiful soundtrack, environements and story did it for me. Special mention to : FF4, FF6, FF7 and FF10, which I all liked a lot, too, but i want to make place for others series.

7 : Mass Effect Trilogy

I'm normaly not into sci-fi futuristic RPGs, I prefer the fantasy-medieval theme, but for some reason I loved this trilogy so much. Maybe it's because it's a blend of shooters and rpgs, well, it's probably that when I think about it. The immersion is flawless, we need more of this genre.

8 : Elder Scrolls : 4/5

I still can't tell if I prefer Oblivion or Skyrim, both have aspect that are better than the others. I played about 150 hours on both and just like Mass Effect, I think the strong point of these games is the immersion. 5 hours of gametime in this feels like 2 at most.

9 : Golden Sun 2


This is probably only because of the nostalgia since I played this as a kid, but fuck I had a good times with this game. Theres also probably the fact that I was playing it along side of my 2 cousins at the time, so we hyped ourselve to death everytime we saw each others, which was often back then. I liked the uses of the magic (psynergy I think it was called) on the worldmap/dungeons, it was original). Overall a solid standard JRPG that you can play on the go since it's on GBA.

10 : Tales of Symphonia

Sheena, mostly. I liked the little skits, gameplay which was new to me at the time and every little details in this game.

I know what you mean.

I'm switching between ME2, Arkham City and Dishonored depending on my mood/annoyance level. I'm going to try and play ME2 and ME3 this month and finish the trilogy. I really want to see just how "bad" this ending is.

It's really not that bad. I'd say its totally normal, maybe disappointing but not "bad" at all.
6  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: April 30, 2013, 11:32:55 PM
While the PSX graphics were unreal for that game, MAN a high-rez version is in my Top 3 of "Things Squeenix Should Actually HD/Remake".

Oh yeah, I would do it again for sure.



I'm done with FFIX, such a beautiful ending. My eyes were slightly wet, the only other game that did this to me was Lost Odyssey.
I started Dragon Quest VIII, which I found for 20$ brand new in a small videogame shop. I really dig the exploration so far, world looks huge as fuck. This is actually the first DQ game im playing, I also own DQIX.


According to the Dragon Quest IX strategy guide, there's an achievement for playing for 1,000 hours. I don't have that much time invested in most of my MMO's. Dragon Quest VIII is pure gold, though. Excellent introduction to the series, and if you enjoy it I recommend some of the remakes on the DS if you have one, particularly DQV.

Did you mean DQX ? DQIX is a single player (well, theres a coop feature) on the DS and DQX is a MMO. If you were really talking about DQIX then no way i'll spend that much time in a single player game haha!

I've been playing a bit of FFIX from time to time lately, I think i'm at the end of the 3rd cd. I had it when I was younger but english being my second language, I was unable to progress very far. It's very good, I feel so nostalgic listening to the beautiful soundtrack ! After that one i'll need to decide which other RPG I start, I have plenty still sealed. (I buy way too many games for the spare time I have)

Disgaea is also enhanced and cheaper on PSP/DS than on PS2, but I'd go with DDS.
edit: I'm pretty sure at least most of those are also cheaper than $30 on amazon.

You're probably right, but i'm not a fan of buying online. I should though, I guess i'd save money on the long run.

Edit : After checking reviews/videos, i'm most interested in either Disgaea HoD or Nocturne/Digital Devil Saga. The others doesn't really seem to fit my taste.

Dragon Age Origins is pretty damn good. The second not so much.
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New pick ups (curious about opinions) on: April 10, 2013, 05:36:29 PM
I work in a videogame store and my boss actually surprised the f*ck out of me when I got there today. He was able to order :

Persona 3 & 4.
Digital Devil Saga 1 & 2
Disgaea Hour of Darkness
Devil Summoner 1 & 2
SMT Nocture
Etrian Odyssey 1 to 4.

All brand new. I'm currently looking at reviews and videos, i'll buy at least one of the bunch. 30$ each, not that bad since it's new. If you guys had to pick one out of these, what would you chose?

I've been a really big fan of Hope's theme, that little accoustic tune that plays during the eclipse when you see him.

Really chill...

I agree, really cool theme song =)
13  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Random Question!? Did you like Final Fantasy 13? on: February 23, 2012, 04:33:24 PM
Im really surprise that a lot of people enjoyed the battle system.. please tell me what was so fun about it? I really want to know because honestly autobattle must be the most stupid thing to ever happen in a RPG.

Oh and now dont tell me that I can play without it, because, well, im aware of that fact. The thing is, the way the battle system is made, if you don't use it, its a mess and annoying to play because everything is too fast.
14  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Random Question!? Did you like Final Fantasy 13? on: February 22, 2012, 03:20:47 PM
I just bought Final Fantasy 13! Its really fun!! I don't really have a problem with the Linearity but i do find myself missing the wide areas of Final Fantasy 12. What i like best in Final Fantasy 13 is the combat, it's a game changer!


Tell me if you liked or disliked Final Fantasy 13. Reason? Hours Logged?

Thanks for sharing!!!

Funny because for me, I enjoyed the game overall but the combat was the thing I disliked the most... the game played itself. 9 fights out of 10 all you need to do is pres A, I don't see how it can be fun.
15  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Non-RPG Playstation One Games on: February 17, 2012, 08:21:40 PM
Crash Bandicoot 1/2/3
Crash Team Racing (For real, its a must! its like Mario Kart, with an awesome "campaign" and a lot of cool stuff)
Spyro The Dragon

I was a little kid back then but im sure id still have a lot of fun with these games
