    Non-Nintendo Handhelds That You Like

    It goes w/o saying that Nintendo practically owned the handheld market for the longest of time, and they still do today w/ the you know what. Of course that doesn't mean other companies didn't try to take a crack at it. So if you have some experience w/ handheld games or devices that aren't from...

    Do you prefer direct sequels or stand alone games?

    There's been a good amount of direct sequels in the series, Zelda 2, Majora's Mask, so on so forth. But of course most games in the series are the stand alone ones, the typical Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, yada yada. So the question is, do you prefer it when we get direct...

    Can you be a fan of a game you've never played?

    I remember a long time ago I saw a comment of someone saying that the Kirby series was their favorite franchise, even though they've never played the games before, they just watch playthroughs of the games on YouTube. My immediate reaction was "bro what?" It didn't make sense to me to be a fan...

    How old were you when you first played video games?

    Many of us played games when we were younger, but do you remember when was the first time you began to play? What game(s) was it and how old do you believe you were? If there's a story behind it that you can remember, feel free to share it. I personally can't remember my exact age but I'd guess...

    Favorite Console Designs

    I like how certain consoles can be really eye appealing, but this varies from person to person. I know my friend really digs the PAL Super Nintendo design but I'm super whatever on it. But what are your favorite console designs? Here's my top 4:

    Do you play w/ ROM hacks?

    ROM hacks can come in so many forms from small fixes or improvements to people creating their own games basically. Do you guys toy around w/ ROM hacks much? Or even translation hacks? So far, the only hacks I've really used are ones that slightly improve or restore certain aspects of games. A...

    Favorite Mario Sports Series

    Mario sports games are the only sports games I can be bothered w/, and I love em. They really thrived during the N64 and Gamecube era but they kinda died down a bit after the Wii. Either way, Mario has had his hand in a good amount of sports, so among them, which ones did you guys like the best...

    How often do you sell games for new ones?

    There's always games coming out that we want to play but don't have enough money for. So the question here is, have you even had to sell some or a lot of your games in order to buy new ones? Or even for a console? If you have, have you ever felt content w/ your decision or do you end up...

    Have you ever faced discrimination?

    It's unfortunate to say that this is still a problem in this day and age. If you're willing to share, have you ever had to face racism or some form of discrimination based on how you look or your background? If it's never happened to you, have you seen it happen to some else first hand?

    Did you ever play flash games much?

    Flash games to me feel like such a middle school or early high school kind of thing. Not to mention how big Newgrounds.com was when I started to become more active on the internet. That aside, how often have any of you dabbled with flash or browser games? Do any of you still play around w/ them...

    What type of compilations do you like the most?

    Compilations are great for having multiple games on one disc/cart. There are a few forms that they can take though, which kind do you like the most? Series examples: Jak & Daxter HD Collection, Kirby's Dream Collection, Castlevania Anniversary Collection, etc. Company examples: Sega Genesis...

    How many series do you like more than Zelda?

    I reckon for many of us, Zelda is in our top 5 or even 3 favorite franchises. And I'm sure many would say its even their favorite franchise. So as a quick question, how many franchises do you like just a bit more than Zelda? And if Zelda is your favorite, does your next favorite(s) tail right...

    If you had a sealed game for an older system, would you open it?

    Imagine a scenario where you came across a sealed copy of an older game for whatever set of circumstances. Let's say 15+ years old. Better yet, that sealed game is for a system you own, so you actually have a means to play it. Would you bring yourself to open it? Also for this scenario, it isn't...

    Is it worthwhile to play an unfinished series?

    I'm talking something akin to Mega Man Legends or Half-Life where there was never a proper conclusion. This is probably more so aimed at you guys who play games for their stories, is it worth it to you to get into a series that hasn't seen a conclusion as it may possibly never even happen?

    Right handed Link: Do you care?

    Ever since the beginning, Link has been a left handed swordsman. This is actually a really neat trait b/c you don't see too many left handed swordsman around. Heck even Toon Link's figurine description for the Nintendo Gallery in Wind Waker indicated that his favorite hand is his left. Then for...

    Siblings and game systems

    Kids have to share game consoles. It can be pretty annoying if they're both possessive over it but that's just how it goes since parents can't typically buy the same game consoles for all their kids. So how was it for you growing up w/ video games and siblings? Did you fight a lot w/ your...

    Your Four Sword Adventures (if applicable)

    Both Four Swords games are a bit tough to play multiplayer mostly b/c you have to go out of your way to to actually do so. For those of you who have, I'm curious to know what your experiences are w/ these games. Was it tough to manage? How are your memories playing these games? Also you can...

    Joycon Drift Issues

    So I made a thread earlier about console reliability, but I didn't think Joycons would be thrown in the mix since they're controllers, just wanted to talk about my constant failing gamecubes, ha. But since I feel like the Joycon issue is a topic on its own, why not make a thread about it? This...

    Console reliability from your own experience

    Game systems fail, that's just the reality of it. Though for one reason or another, some are more prone to failure than others. Heck, do I even need to mention the 7th generation? But we all have our own luck for how reliable some systems are. So the question is, what game systems from what...

    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...

    General SSB 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...

    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?

    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?

    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...

    Which versions of the characters would you put in Smash?

Now in Smash Ultimate, they're ditching the sets and pulling from wherever. So the question here is if you were able to...
