Oh yeah I forgot Metroid Prime too....I got the game, but I can't play it really because I tend to get carsick from playing it :'(.


- Conkers bad fur day(N64) - I heard good reviews from it

I got the game, it's 'fun', nice humour here and there. Terrific graphics for that time, but the game itself isn't that much, the storyline is nonsense and sporadic from one weird spoof like event to another. And it's darn hard too, some games, or better said 'minigames' within the game to continue the story are just too darn hard. Only the multiplayer is good good fun.

Can't really think of any game I missed...
Damn I'm a gaming nerd.

Or you're not, and you just know little games.

Katamari Damacy
Gran Turismo 4
All DS games
Metroid Prime

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

You quit Metroid Prime? Oh man, you have no idea what you are missing out on! Especially at the end. By far one of the greatest games created!
I got fed up finding save spots.  Why can't they just let me suspend play?

- Ultima 4 and up
- System Shock series (I have SS2 sitting in a box somewhere)
- Grand Terisimo
- Fable
- Time Zone (Apple 2+)
- Most of the Zelda series (playing OOT a little now)
- Any Paper Mario series game (I've heard they are great)
- KOTOR 2
- Really need to fire up Metroid Prime again (only finished the first level)
- Bards Tale (never finished it)
- Any of the new Prince of Persia series (starting with the Sands of Time)
- Any of the Silent Hill series
- The first Heroes of Might and Magic (what a great series)
- Legacy of the Ancients (C64) - heard it was amazing.

Cheat the game, it is more fun that way.


I cheated it and had a blast, in fact I cheated both.



But not because I was bored, but because I can't play them. I am no good at games.

I quit Metroid Prime at first too. But once I actually got into it it was amazing!
Yeah same here. I recently played through Prime 1 and 2 and now I'm midway through Corruption. Fantastic games.

I missed out on quite a few. I played N64 here and there but overall Im not much of a gamer. My List:

Splinter Cell Series (I have no idea whats going on)
Command and Conquer Series
Zelda Series (Only played Majoras Mask and OOT)
Resident Evil (Only played the 64 one...well watched my friend play it)
Final Fantasy (Only played 7 and 8 finished neither one..I would play through both if they actually made an updated one, what can I say old graphics make me sick :P )
Fallout (Only played BOS)

Thats all I can think of.
