Which Nintendo-published games have you NOT you played (but want to)? [roundtable]
Mine mostly fall into the 'obscure' category. Games like Geist, DK Barrel Blast, Mole Mania, Teleroboxer, Mario Clash, stuff like Odama and Chibi Robo and Golden Sun that I just haven't opened yet, lots of import games. But there are also a bunch of old-school games that I missed out on, like Gyromite, Stunt Race FX, Earthbound, all the Super Mario Land games, and most Kirby games. Oh, and some of the more realistic sports stuff.

I finally did get Wrecking Crew on the VC. Eeeeehhh.

But the games I'm most curious about are Zangeki No Reginleiv, Gyromite, Super Mario Land 1 & 2, and Stunt Race FX. (It's Miyamoto, right?)

The Professor Layton games... those are Nintendo published, right? I keep hearing great things about them but my backlog doesn't really permit me to go ahead and buy them right now

I haven't played any of the Endless Ocean games, or any of the Mario Sports games (including the GameCube and Nintendo 64 games). I'd like to give those a try sometime.

Want to play but haven't:

Excitebike 64
Pilotwings 64
Soma Bringer

Haven't played, but don't care that I haven't:

(Most) Kirby games.
Doshin the Giant
Captain Rainbow
NBA Courtside
Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball
Fossil Fighters
Custom Robo 64
Mario Superstar Baseball
Mario Super Sluggers
Mairo Strikers Charged


Stunt Race FX wasn't all that great, IMO. Kinda slow and the framerate stuttered something terrible. Not good for a racing game. The best racing games by Nintendo on SNES were F-Zero and Super Mario Kart, obviously.

Also? SHAME on you and your house for having never played a Super Mario Land game! *shakes fist*

Probably just Earthbound, but I'm not the biggest RPG nut, so I've never actively seeked it out. I'd download it on the VC.


And shame on YOU for not caring about Mario Strikers Charged. Best sports game on the Wii, crazy fun.

I guess I'd say Earthbound and Xenoblade. I really enjoy RPGs, and both of these look like standouts in the genre. They also, coincidentally, are apparently hated by Nintendo.
Posted: 08/12/10, 19:25:16
I'm sure I haven't played a ton of Nintendo published games.

The one that stands out like a sore thumb to me is, of course, Earthbound. I've heard it's not actually as good as all of the hype it gets but eh... it looks pretty darn unique and fun to me. Gotta get on that someday.

Other than that I dunno. I probably missed a few gems back in the day. And nowadays I buy and/or play most every Nintendo developed game, though some of their 2nd party stuff I pass up on.

Soccer, lol.

Believe it or not, I share this opinion (though the World Cup was fun) Regardless, Mario Strikers Charged is awesome.

I was also going to rag on you for dissing Strikers, but anon_ beat me to the punch. It is a pretty cool game, even though it's hard as ballz.

As for SML, I never had a Game Boy! The GBA was my introduction to the world of handhelds. Prior to that, I had to 'console' myself with playing Tetris and Spider-Man (LJN, shit) on my friend's GB. I might have played SML once or twice, but only for a minute, or so. When I got a GBA, I picked up most of the tasty GB/GBC games, but I still don't have Mole Mania and I'm still waiting for a full-color remake of SML 1 & 2!

I've never played a Pilotwings game.

I have Galaxy, and I intend to play it eventually.

I think I'm cursed. When I say I won't buy a game right away, I always end up buying in in the next few days. So I purchased Professor Layton and the Curious Village today. That is the first one in the series, right? I also noticed they have Diabolical Box so assuming I enjoy this one, I'll most likely be getting the next one as well.
Posted: 08/17/10, 23:51:27
Yup, Curious is the first.
Posted: 08/18/10, 00:04:28
Yea, Curious Village is the first, Diabolical Box is the second, and Unwound Future, the third, is coming soon!

If you enjoy Curious Village I'd definitely check out Diabolical Box. It's essentially the same idea, I mean, if you love the first you'll probably love the second. And it has the most epic ending... EVAR.

Earthbound stands out the most, and it's especially criminal of me since I'm a huge Mother 3 fan.

Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal - I don't feel bad about this one now since I own HeartGold, but I strangely skipped over it when I was in elementary school.
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap - I own this, but I haven't gotten around to start it up yet.

And I really hope we North American fans will get the opportunity to play Xenoblade in 2011. Everything I've read and heard about this RPG sounds very refreshing and fun, and I haven't played nearly as many console RPGs this generation compared to the previous.

It kind of amazes me that some people play Layton for the story bits.
Posted: 08/18/10, 00:18:30
I don't play them FOR the story bits, but they do have pretty fun characters and the cutscenes are awesome on DS, very well done.

And the endings are usually interesting.
Posted: 08/18/10, 00:21:44
For a game that revolves around puzzles, riddles, and logic, the characters have a lot of memorable quirks and personalities that spark a fun story to enjoy. I'd say at least 25% of my Professor Layton enjoyment comes from the narrative.

Doesn't matter what you're doing right now, nothing is more important than downloading the original G/S and playing it.

Can I finish HeartGold first? I love all things retro and 8-bit when it comes to video games, so maybe I'll get around to playing the original 2nd generation games someday. One thing I can comment on, is that the classic music is totally great:
