    What's Your View on HMs in the Pokemon Series?

    My view is that HMs should bow out of Pokemon. I understand the desire or need to keep players from entering areas they're not ready for, but it's getting pretty ridiculous at this point. I really, really want to use all six of my Pokemon slots for battle without reserving two or three for the...

    Did You Lean More Toward the Law or Chaos Sides of Shin Megami Tensei IV?

    Shin Megami Tensei IV strikes me as more of a niche kind of game, so perhaps the response to this thread won't be overwhelming. SMT IV, like other games in the series (so I've heard), uses a decision-based Law vs. Chaos system that determines how the story plays out. While avoiding as many...

    Why is Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Rated E10+?

    I made a similar thread a long time ago about the Halo series. Something's struck me as a little odd with the latest Mario and Luigi installment. Mario has always been a cheerful, happy-go-lucky series. No matter the game he's appeared in - even Super Smash Bros. - things never got too mature or...

    General Zelda Is the Story an Unnecessary Distraction in Zelda?

    The title is going to mislead only too many people if I don't elaborate, so let me elaborate. I got into a discussion with someone in GaroXicon's How Zelda Has Dropped Out of Mainstream Conversation article about the importance of developing story and gameplay side-by-side with equal attention...

    What's Your Opinion on Canned Laughter?

    "Canned laughter," in a nutshell, is the effect in a TV show when somebody says something "funny" and a bunch of laughter suddenly appears as if to remind you it's humorous. My personal opinion is that canned laughter is annoying and unnecessary; if anything, it's kind of insulting to my...

    Who Do You Think the Zelda U Villain Will Be?

    This poll is in contrast to the "Who do you want as the Zelda U villain?" poll. In the latter, you vote for what kind of villain you'd prefer in Zelda U. In this poll, you merely vote on which kind of villain you think Nintendo will wind up going with in Zelda U as of now. Funnily enough, my...

    Who Do You Want As the Zelda U Villain?

    This poll is in partnership with the "Who do you think the next Zelda villain will be?" poll. Naturally, in this poll, you vote on which villain you personally want to appear as the main antagonist in Zelda U. In the aforementioned poll, you vote on which villain you think Nintendo will go with...

    What Genre Would You Most Like to See Zelda Do in a Spin-off?

    First, know that I am not suggesting a permanent change for the Zelda series. If Zelda were ever to do a spin-off that received every bit as much love and attention as a main-series game, what genre would you prefer it dip into? My top two preferences are the turn-based RPG and real-time...

    Hunger and Thirst Meters

    A very real concern about living in the wild is being able to keep yourself fed and quenched. It's easy to overexert yourself and wind up desperate for food and water, and if you lived in a world as weird and dangerous as Hyrule, you'd have to worry about being killed by some fantasy creature as...

    What Changes or Improvements Would You Most Like to See in Monolith Soft's New RPG?

    Monolith's new RPG, which appears to be a sequel (or at least in the same vein) to Xenoblade Chronicles, looks amazing, right down to graphics and physics. I really enjoyed Xenoblade, even if it wasn't perfect, so I'm looking forward to this next installment even more. Since it appears to...

    Which GameCube Games Would You Most Like to See Remade in HD?

    Now that we know The Wind Waker is being redone in HD, this naturally brings to mind what other GameCube games could or should receive the same treatment. The removal of the cel-shaded look in The Wind Waker is debatable, but which GameCube games would you like to see remastered just as far as...

    Was Halo 4 Really Deserving of the M Rating?

    The most I have ever played of a Halo game is about five minutes of a multiplayer match in Halo 3, and I sucked. Nevertheless, I've seen a fair bit of the Halo series, and its M rating has perplexed me a bit. Case in point: Halo 4 was rated M for only "Blood and Violence," not even "Blood and...

    Game Help Could Random Encounters Stand to Be Improved?

    I posted a similar thread a few days ago, but that was more of a poll focusing on one extreme or the other. I believe what I said was rather misinterpreted there and thus have decided to rephrase it into a different form. My question this time: how would you improve random encounters with...

    Random Encounters with Wild Pokemon: Keep Them or Remove Them?

    In the mainstream Pokemon games, you've always encountered wild Pokemon completely by chance. You wander into the grass, traipse through the cave, surf over the pond, or whatever, and the game stops you and forces you into battle with a wild Pokemon after awhile. This has been the formula since...

    In Which Game Did You Enjoy Fishing the Most?

    Each of the currently four Zelda games to involve fishing offered different takes on the mini-game. Link's Awakening was more of a quick and simple diversion to earn a Piece of Heart. Ocarina of Time expanded it to include fish with differing weights, rewards, and favorite spots to fish in. You...

    Your Preferences in a Zelda Movie

    Before we start, know that I'm not automatically endorsing a Zelda movie, and I acknowledge not everyone is going to want one. In fact, I don't necessarily want one. This is a pure speculation topic meant to stimulate the juices of the mind and see if something could work. Let's just say a...

    Do You Want to See the Pictograph Box Again?

    In spite of being possibly my favorite item in the whole Zelda series, the Pictograph Box has only shown up in two games: Majora's Mask and The Wind Waker. That means we haven't seen it in about ten years. You can argue about the sidequests it's cooked up and the limits it's imposed, but you...

    Is Ocarina of Time Really the Best-made Zelda Game?

    Before we go on, I should note that I am not taking one side or the other here, per se. While I do hold Ocarina of Time as the best-made Zelda game, it is not necessarily my favorite. Ocarina of Time may have fewer low-points than any other Zelda game to me, but other games may have high points...

    Spoiler Should Rivals Be Deeper and More Interactive?

    Rivals are a trademark in mainstream Pokemon games and have assumed all kinds of roles, from arrogant jerks to immoral thieves to completely friendly little girls. The original Rival, Blue, was an arrogant jerk who was always a step ahead of you and yet missed the point of training Pokemon. His...

    A Super Mario 64/Zelda Hybrid?

    I've been thinking about possible Zelda spin-offs recently, and one that stuck in my mind was a cross between Super Mario 64 (or Sunshine, or Galaxy) and the general gameplay of Zelda. It would obviously bear the basic formula of Zelda, but I think it would be interesting to see how that formula...

    Did Skyward Sword Disappoint in Its Delivery?

    Skyward Sword was claimed by Nintendo to be their biggest effort to date, the end-all-be-all of Zelda, and if SS wasn't widely viewed as surpassing OoT, Shigeru Miyamoto would stop working on the Zelda series. These were awfully lofty ambitions, and I naturally want to know if most players...

    Do You Want a Sequel to Pokemon Snap?

    Pokemon Snap was based on a brilliant premise of going through a guided course and snapping photographs of Pokemon as you passed by them, getting points based on proximity, technique, and position. While it was good fun and a unique idea, the game was too short and simple to show its potential...

    Which Zelda Enemy Would You Most Like to See in HD?

    Some enemies would really lend themselves to the intricate detail of HD. Considering that the Wii U supports HD, it's likely the next Zelda game for it will feature a more realistic graphical scheme that draws out such details. My main point is enemies seen in realistic or semi-realistic HD...
