    Do you guys mod your systems?

    I've done it for my Wii and PSP and maybe at some point for my 3ds if I'm feeling it. I started w/ my Wii that wasn't able to read discs, and this was when the Wii U was out so support for the Wii was about done, so I just gave that a shot. I'll just say if I hadn't done so, I wouldn't have been...

    Do you still play new games on your old systems?

    I'm sure plenty of us like to revisit our old games now and then, but how often do you play games that you haven't played before on those old systems? Would you even consider getting a game for your older systems? Or do you mostly stick w/ current gen hardware or PC and maybe just hold out for...

    Do you have a console bias for some series?

    When a certain series is multiplat, do you tend to buy the games in that series for a specific platform? Like for instance, if you had a 360 and PS3, would you have only played the Mass Effect series or the Bioshock series for one platform exclusively? Or better yet for something like when Crash...

    If there was an original 3ds zelda using the N64 remaster's engine...

    I remember back when Aonuma or someone said that zelda has unfinished business on the 3ds after Link b/w Worlds, I really thought that meant we'd get another 3d proper zelda game for the 3ds in the same vein as the N64 remasters. Of course we got mother flippin tri for heroes instead and at this...

    What rules or principals do you have when buying games?

    Not many of us can afford to get every new release out there even if we wanted to, so how do you manage what new games you wanted to get? Since summer of last year, I've only bought 2 games at full price. I opt to just waiting at minimum a month on a new release so I can get it used b/c I just...

    What's the worst thing you lost outside? (bus, school, etc.)

    Whether it be misplaced items or things that just slip out of our pockets, what was the worst thing you lost when you were out and about? Loosing things on the bus is a pretty common one, but it could also be at a park or someone's house or something. I remember one of my friends lost either a...

    How did you find out about games pre-internet?

    This doesn't necessarily have to mean before the internet became a household thing, more so before you had access to the internet yourself if you're on the younger side. Anyways, before nowadays when we know when everything is coming out months beforehand, how did you learn when an upcoming...

    Has a name ever sold you on a game?

    I thought of this when I looked at The Last Story's box art. I have to wonder were there people who were sold on the game just on either Sakaguchi's and/or Uematsu's name alone. So that got me to think, has someone's involvement on a game ever sold you on it? Whether it be a directer, a...

    What games appealed to you when you were young?

    So when I was in elementary school, I guess you can say I was attracted to more cartoony looking games. I mean take a look at what I had back then: Mario Sunshine, Wind Waker, Pac Man World 2, Billy Hatcher, Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 [both only rented though], Rayman 3, you get the picture. But as I...

    How often is your first in a series your favorite?

    You see and hear this a lot where a person's favorite game in a series was typically their first. How much of this applies to you though? Off the top of my head, for long running series at least, Zelda and Rayman are some of the few ones where I would say this applies. Of course this comes down...

    Series w/ different protagonists: Does it bug you?

    You see this w/ a lot of RPGS like Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Tales of and so on. Each games have a separate protagonist and isolated stories from the rest of the series. Hell even Zelda technically has this w/ there being like a million different Links, w/ some overlap here and there. Does...

    One and done games

    Personally, I feel more inclined to keep games that I plan to replay at some point in the future. Realistically that's probably not gonna happen with probably even half the games I own, but hey, my intent is there at least. But what about games that you playthrough once and never feel the need...

    Did your most wanted character ever make it in?

    Not just for Ultimate but starting from any previous smash game, when a new one was coming out, did a character that you wanted the most ever make it in? There wasn't a character I was ever too fixated on wanting for smash until smash 4 removed Snake. Yeah so my most wanted character for smash...

    Memes that get a genuine laugh out of you

    So we all know memes are inherently short lived. Most of the time we see them and they just get a quick chuckle out of us, then we move on. Some we may even dwell on for a bit if they're clever enough or just well made. But how about ones that get an actual laugh out of you for the first time...

    Have you ever marathoned certain games?

    Has there ever been a period of time where you decided to marathon games of a certain series or system or something back to back? How was it? Did you stick w/ it all the way through or loose interest at some point? I don't think I've ever done so w/ any games, at least not back to back. But's...

    A sequel to which?

    We'll probably know once it comes out but for the moment, Link's Awakening was a sequel to Link to the Past, so with this being a remake, you'd think that'd still be the case. Except there's Link b/w Worlds which, while basically being a pseudo remake of past, still featured a different story...

    What's the furthest you traveled for a game?

    I used to go on craigslist every now and then to find games. I slowly stopped going b/c I wasn't finding as much good stuff as I used to. Anyways, I was actually using craigslist before I even knew how to drive, so a lot of times I would head to the locations through buses or walking. My very...

    Can a relationship that started sexually last?

    If a man and a woman met up for the first time and did something sexual during that time, and one of them wanted to pursue a relationship w/ that person afterwards, can it even last? I mean something like that is typically meant for a couple that's been in a relationship for a decent amount of...

    Was there a Sonic Adventure 3?

    So my friend and I got into a little exchange w/ another friend about how Sonic 2006 was basically Sonic Adventure 3, just w/o the title. Reason being it follows the same formula as adventure 1, separate story campaigns that lead to a final story, it also had hub worlds that adventure featured...

    Whats the worst feeling you can get when trying to play?

    The other day I tried to play my PS2, only to find that it wasn't reading the discs I was putting in. After a bit of tinkering it was able to read the discs again, but man did my heart sink when I thought it kicked the bucket. So that got me to think, in terms of something not working right...

    Which versions of the characters would you put in Smash?

    So in Smash 64 and Melee, they opted to use the Ocarina of Time versions of the characters. In Brawl and Smash 4, they went w/ the Twilight Princess versions [plus Toon Link]. Now in Smash Ultimate, they're ditching the sets and pulling from wherever. So the question here is if you were able to...

    Favorite rendition of the main theme

    The all time classic tune that is the overworld theme from the first The Legend of Zelda has been brought back and remade so many times.

    Multiplayer Memories

    I have to say, I really didn't do a lot of multiplayer gaming when I was younger, despite owning Mario Party and Mario Kart and such [yes, I always played those single player]. My older brother didn't really play w/ me a whole lot, the few times I can remember were Nicktoons Unite, Star Wars...

    My original interpretation of Wind Waker's prologue

    This might be better suited for a blog but I can't create blogs for whatever reason so I'll just make this.

    Least favorite parts of your favorite games

    What's a consistent release schedule to you

    Some franchises take a long while until we see a new game while others come out almost annually. So my question is what's the most ideal time to release a new game after the last, without compromising the quality of the games to rush them out, but at the same time not taking so long that...

    The Ys series

    I don't suppose there are many here who have really heard much of this series, let alone played it. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana came to the switch some time ago and it's seriously one of the best action rpgs I've ever played. The switch version does have a few framerate hiccups I will admit, but...

    Car accidents

    Got into one a couple days ago. To make it brief, I made a very quick turn on the freeway and lost control of the car, thus impacting the car in front of me on that lane since I didn't hit the brakes in time. I tried to make my way to the side but unbeknownst to me, the car was set on neutral...

    Which of these co. holds the best franchises?

    Try your best to separate the company's current business practices from the franchises as much as possible, b/c I know that can be really tough to do for a couple of them (especially Konami). But basically, each of these companies hold many superb classic franchises. Whether that's the case now...

    Turn-base combat: Are you a fan?

    A lot of games over the years have tried to put their own spin in turn-based combat, but at the end of the day, you're just taking turns beating each other up. You don't see too much of this style in RPGs nowadays bar some notable exceptions, most of them try to head into the action route...

    "Retro Gaming" when you were a kid

    Most kids first game system would typically be whatever's relevant at the time or whatever was out a generation prior, though I guess that would depend how long ago the last generation ended. My question here is how much exposure did you have to retro games when you were a kid. Obviously "retro"...

    Pauline or Rosalina?

    If you could only play one console, which will it be?

    If you were in some strange hypothetical situation in which you were only allowed to play a single console forever, which one would you pick? Would it be your favorite console or the one w/ the most games you enjoy? I'd probably pick the Playstation 3. A big reason being all the PS2 hd...

Or do...

    Game you most often revist

    Favorite Capcom franchises

    Capcom has such a large and diverse pool of game franchises that spans various genres.

    Remade games you still prefer the original over

    Generally remaking a game is supposed to improve or fix many aspects of an original game in order to bring it to a new audience.

    Kids playing M rated games

    Best Xenogears villain

    Xenogears has quite the handful of antagonists w/ their own agendas and goals. For me, the best would have to be Grahf.

    Games that trigger unfavorable memories

    Favorite Console Game Cases

    Game you have the most versions for
