Nostalgia Goggles (I WANT TO SLAP THEM OFF OF PEOPLE) [roundtable]
So I was in Anatomy/Physiology lab today, and one guy in my group noticed what was on my shirt:

He asked, "Hey, is that a metroid?"

I said, "Yeah"

He said, "Cool, Super Metroid is one of my favorite games."

"Mine too! :D " I said.

At this time, I'm thinking, 'Holy crap, a Nintenbro at my college! I should introduce him to Neg-'

"Way better than those new first person shooter Prime ones."



Do nostalgia goggles cause a lot of bias towards newer games in a series?



Note: I love both Super Metroid and Metroid Prime. I actually enjoy the 2-D Metroids more and think Super Metroid is better, but not 'way better' as the guy smugly said.

I always thought the real strength of FFVII was the character design. If you look at that cast, pretty much every one of them could have fronted their own game. Only Cait Sith seems like he was made to be a side character (but put him in a Vegas Stakes style game, and he's a star).

@kriswrightI can see it now: Aerith's Flower Girl Adventures.

You laugh, but if that was announced at E3 it'd be considered a megaton.

But I think the fact that Jargon has a niece named Aeris proves that she's one of the most memorable characters in the game. You might even be able to argue that she already fronted a game - Final Fantasy VII.

You missed an opportunity, sms:

Jerry Rice and RedXIII's Dog Football

Take out Jerry Rice and throw in Barrett and I'd be all over that.

And I don't even know how to play American football.

YES!! Our dreams - answered!

Here you go, take your pick:

Personally, I think I like the Jerry Rice one best because the incongruity of those two collaborating multiplies the hilarity. But your mileage my vary.

Either way, times are hard for heroes from the 90s.

Haha, is that Cait on the sidelines?! Boooo, cats!
Posted: 08/30/11, 03:04:33

Yeah, he's waiting for the inevitable Jose Canseco and Morris' Cat Baseball.

Where is the obvious Michael Vick joke?
Posted: 08/30/11, 03:23:58

Too easy. Though I do admit that, in the game, I renamed one of my dogs "Michael Vick".
Posted: 08/30/11, 03:28:24

Cats are awesome.

My cat says "Boo, mustaches!" True story.

You freakin' jerk.

Those spinoffs sound pretty nice. However, I think Square Enix is gonna be steering clear of the numbers XIII and XIV for a while.

.... or at least they should.
Posted: 08/30/11, 09:22:57
Awesome, but shouldn't it be "Red XIII?"

Also, the first one works best!
Posted: 08/30/11, 09:50:39

I'll fix it in Post.

EDIT: There. Tis done.
