  1. No it's not. Most convenient, yes. Best, not by a long shot. The best Nintendo console ever is hands down the NES.
  2. "Besides addressing carjacking, the bill also changes the definition of a “violent video game” to one in which players “control a character within the video game that is encouraged to perpetuate human-on-human violence in which the player kills or otherwise causes serious physical or psychological harm to another human or an animal.” Great. This means we're left with golf. Wait a minute, a golf club is a weapon. Tiddlywinks is safe, right?
  3. I'll make sure to let them know how I learned to freeze people solid after playing Mortal Kombat. And I'm curious how many outlaw gangs are roaming around, robbing trains, robbing banks, robbing wagons, and chewing cocaine gum? If games cause violence and crime, then I can blame misspelled words on my pencil.
  4. There was some idiot who broke into a house, and was stupid enough to post about it on his Facebook while in the house. The real kicker was that HE DIDN'T FUCKING LOG OUT. I have to stop asking how stupid can a person be. People are starting to take it as a challenge.
  5. I don't go for achievements per se, unless it's just something I find interesting to do. I like to try to fill up the compendium of all the animals, fish, weapons, equipment,etc. etc. in RDR2. I also enjoy their challenges. The Explorer is the easiest to complete all 10 in full. Master Hunter, Horseman, and Weapons Expert are a lot of fun too. They aren't important for much, but they're a nice distraction from the story line when you need one.
  6. An obscenely large part of that was Micah. Always being Dutch's yes-man, and stroking his ego. Encouraging his most idiotic and destructive ideas. But then he was also a narc, and was trying to make the gang come as undone as possible. I personally believe that Dutch never actually cared about anyone in the gang anyway. He was just using them to make him rich, and when he felt he had a satisfactory amount of money he would abandon them with every cent. He was more of a problem than anyone in the gang. If they had just shot him and put Hosea in charge, they would have all lived great lives. Hos
  7. Diablo and Diablo II are a couple good ones. Especially on the harder difficulty settings.
  8. Simon’s Quest is, in my opinion, one of the best in the franchise. I’ve never been able to figure out why it got so much hate. Sure it’s a really difficult game, but it’s more cryptic difficulty than any other kind of difficulty. Which to me is kinda the best style of difficult.
  9. There was a lot about John that was revealed in RDR2. Things that most would never have guessed at.
  10. Arthur in RDR2. You have to experience his internal conflict with him. He remains loyal to a fault, but sometimes even he isn’t sure why. There’s nothing that even hints at this in the game, but I think he would much rather have been a family man who had never been exposed to the life he lives.
  11. This is actually more common than people would think. There are a lot of games where you play as a criminal. But the character a person plays is almost always the protagonist of the game. Yet if they are a criminal in any way, they are also the antagonist. GTA and RDR2 come to mind for me. But what is the allure, for most? Why would you want to be both ends of the spectrum, and how do you write a game that balances out both? For me, I like being on both ends. it feels somewhat natural. I rob banks, kill people who get in my way, and take care of a family that needs me. That's a hell of a trade
  12. Boo fucking hoo. They're caught and exposed. Did they really think they were going to be able to get away with this forever?
  13. I hate the entire trilogy. I have it, but I won't play it. It simply pisses me off too much.
  14. My girl has an original Joust arcade cabinet that I've been working on to restore it back into working order. But like you said, with the 1UP mini-cabinets, I think they're making a small comeback. I don't think there will ever be a resurgence of arcades, but cabinets that you can bring home, are getting the market up somewhat.
  15. Doing better. I wouldn't say doing good yet, but just better.

      Hang in there. Glad to know it's getting better.

      Just let the time do its thing. You'll see.

  16. I can't remember exactly what their explanation is, but apparently the moon and stars aren't real either. They're holograms or something. They also say that for the sake of argument, Earth is the only flat planet in the universe while all the others are globular. NASA doesn't exist, any and all pictures from space are faked simply to discredit them (especially since going to space is impossible because it doesn't exist either) and that the whole globular Earth is a conspiracy against them. Unfortunately, there seems to be a shortage of rubber rooms and straight jackets.
  17. I have both. The final boxer “Mr Dream” is identical to Tyson’s character in every way aside from digital image. That’s the only difference between the two games. From what I’ve read, Tyson wasn’t happy with Nintendo rereleasing Punch Out after his contract expired.
  18. I’ve talked about this game at length many times. I have to give my vote to RDR2. Everything in it is as close to reality as can be done. Even Ubisoft has called it just about the pinnacle of gaming achievement. Rockstar completely knocked it out of the park on this one. And that’s coming from someone who has never been a fan of Western style games.
  19. RDR2 pretty much throws you in the water without a life jacket. The game starts and for the most part, you’re left to figure out how shit works on your own. The controls are a bitch to learn, and if you don’t have some form of help, it’s gonna take a long time to get it all down.
  20. This one is going to get a lot of hate, but I have to say Majoras Mask. It was ok if you wanted to play the franchise, but were bored with saving Zelda from Ganon. Other than that, it’s not something I would pay a high price for. If I was in the market for a new copy, I wouldn’t pay more than $25 and that’s for the gold hologram edition.
  21. Without going into detail so as not to give any spoilers, there are events in RDR2 that hit close to home for me. Things that almost made me second guess whether or not I want to play it again. But the family feelings I get from the gang is something I need.
  22. Games are getting more and more technical in terms of gameplay every day. You sure as hell aren't going to find anything like Elder Scrolls on Atari or NES. But of the ones you have played, what game requires the most responsibility from you? By that I mean things you have to do, or risk losing some of your achievements? For example, take RDR2. To start off with, you have to take a lot of care with your horse. You have to remember to feed it so that it stays at a healthy weight. If you don't it will starve to death. You have to keep it clean. You have to let it rest. You have to make sure
  23. Nothing can ever replace a loved one. We know that. But we have also heard many times that when you lose a pet, getting another one can help you through. My girl wanted me to ask what everyone here thinks. Should we get another puppy? She's worried about the other dogs not liking the pup. She doesn't want to stress them out. But we know that adding another member to the family can be healthy.
