Oh man, I'm really tempted to go for these SNES games. But I don't want to dedicate the time or money to them right now. Here's hoping for a sale.

So is there a way to play with friends in Lost Reavers? I don't mind the randoms, but my brother in law and I were wanting to play together and I couldn't figure out how to do it.

So GOAT is a big term in sports culture? Hmm. No wonder I don't know it.

The other person using it was complaining how a lot of people consider SNES games GOAT from nostalgia more than quality.

Of course the problem with those sort of arguments is that it's impossible to gauge how much nostalgia is affecting anyone's opinions, so writing them off as too based on nostalgia... meh.

I do feel like I'm at a point in my life where it is hard to imagine any game affecting me the same way my favorite SNES games did. But you never know.
