It's probably LTTP for me, it woke me up to the series. That opening sequence, the rain, the music - it was so atmospheric and had me hooked straight away. It was a truly brilliant game.

I loved OOT to, lovely. And I found the sailing in wind waker to be really therapeutic.

As for skyward sword and twilight princess, for me they were ruined by the stupid wiimote, so I never gave them the time they deserved. I never did play Majoras mask.

Loved your article Kieren... You really are knowledgable on this stuff.. Great read.

Thanks, glad you liked it!  :29:

Well, they are intellectually challenged.  What else can you expect?

Are you putting all of us into that bracket?  Retards too  :35: That would have been flashing up as a reported post on RG!

It was a far better read than the previous 2 issues based on what I like personally - and yea, I thought the Atari bit you did was very good Kieren...  I must say, next months looks even better.

And as for the feedback crusto, What you said was your feedback - and there was nothing wrong with it. Only one person argued back though so not really that bad, was it?

Yep, just one person, this time. But it's a regular occurrence over there. That forum is a shadow itself.

I read mine over the weekend, a better issue than in recent months. Better meaning that it had more stuff in it I am personally interested in! I raised a few points over in RG magazine forum, what if would have liked to have seen etc and got shot down by one of the usual suspects.

I'm struggling to see how it can be called a feedback thread tbh, they don't like feedback over there lol.

That ultimate MD collection is amazing. I have copy for the PSP and Xbox 360. Good value and the games really hold up well. I have been wanting to give the Shining Force series a good workout. Glad you are enjoying it, Crusto.

Yeah, it's great, completed it before. The beauty now is that my 7 year old would rather be playing this with me than anything current gen at the moment. A testament to the games quality.

Today I made the grave mistake of putting on the ultimate MD Collection. And worse still, playing Shining Force 2. Now I'm horribly addicted once again, its a brilliant game!

Playing the pure shit that was nemesis for the fist time on my CPC.
Playing Double Dragon on the SMS, could have been way better - see R-Type.
Playing Outrun on the CPC, nothing more than a sick joke. Again could have done so much better - see Chase HQ
Discovering the awesome conversion of renegade for the CPC, the discovering the shit control method.

I could go on forever lol.

Does anybody on here own one, if so, is it any good? I'm due an upgrade in December and am considering this. It's  had fantastic reviews but I would love to hear from someone who I can 'trust' if you know what I mean.

Did you have it in there? I didn't notice it lol. For what it's worth I reckon the PS2 just about qualifies as a retro machine now. Ah, no, you had FF10 didn't you. I wasnt so keen on that.

I bloody love a good RPG, and did even more so back in the day, here's 10 of my favourites. I don't really have a number 1, so these are in no particular order.

1: Y'S (SMS) This was the first RPG I ever played, and a brilliant way to be introduced to the genre.
2: Phantasy Star 1 (SMS) A truly massive and epic game, and bloody hard too! A classic.
3: Phantasy Star 3 (MD) Fantastic replay value, and a good alternative take on the series.
4: Phantasy Star 4 (MD) The peak of the series, fantastic.
5: Final Fantasy 4 (2 in the US, SNES) The best game in the FF series if you ask me. Ive played through it numerous times on numerous systems and never got bored with it. Oh, and the music is fantastic.
6: Buck Rogers, countdown to doomsday (MD) This was really immersive, it looked and sounded rather crap but that didn't matter a jot. Super game.
7: Shining Force 2 (MD) I loved the battle system here, and character progression was good fun too. Would love to see a modern day reboot, it would be a thing of beauty.
8: Suikoden (PS1) A unique and great game, getting all 108 characters was a very addictive task.
9: Final Fantasy 7 (PS1) So much to do, so well put together and the materia system was a great idea, used to spend loads of time on this (could never defeat emerald weapon though!)
10: D+D Warriors of the Eternal Sun (MD) Iirc this game wasn't rated particularly well back in the day, but this didn't stop me from sinking loads of hours into it. I loved it.

Over to you guys..
