    Is it really necessary to post the youtube link and not just the list here? I'm much too busy a man to watch videos

    Transcribed short list-

    1- The World Ends With You
    2- Chrono Trigger
    3- Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story
    4- Pokemon Platinum
    5- Final Fantasy IV
    6- Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
    7- Dragon Quest V
    8- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
    9- Suikoden Tierkreis
    10- Lunar Knights

    He only counted international releases, no Japan-only stuff (specified a good reason). I quite liked his video. I wouldn't agree with everything of course, but his style is nice and i can tell he loves these games. Well done sir, you have my approval. [​IMG]

    How the hell came you comment on his voice.... most of the "tempers" are fanboys retards that give nothing back to the community and whine... anyway all the dude wanted was to comment on his games list and the video. So, please just do that... Jesus.

    Video - 10/10

    - Nice Cut scenes, and multimedia mix was good.

    Audio 10/10

    - Nicely done music, no youtube cracking noises.


    Those are all great games, some I have but haven't played. I missed out on the whole pokemon crashed years, I picked up the sapphire version when I was in Iraq at a souk market place.... it was surprisingly fun (the pokemon game was copied into a fake handheld advance system).

    Anyway, good job man.

    My thoughts...

    Dragon Quest hasn't aged well in my opinion. It's an ancient RPG formula

    Chrono Trigger is overrated. Yes, it introduced lots of innovative elements and is a good game, but other games used those elements better.

    I'd take HeartGold/SoulSilver > Platinum. That's just me.

    Kingdom Hearts is pretty meh at best. I was generous when I gave it a 7.5 in my review. In retrospect I'd give it a 6/10. It's incredibly repetitive and the story is bleak. I don't care what people say, Kingdom Hearts storylines aren't all that good.

    FFIV on the DS I found to be boring as hell. It's a lot better on the GBA.

    The World Ends With You is definitely not the best. Way too much credit is given to the atmosphere. The gameplay itself is cluttered controls ahoy.

    I really find the DS has lots of RPGs, but not a lot of good ones. I would give Pokemon the top spot purely because of the amount of man hours to put into it and how insanely popular competitive battling has become.

    Where's Puzzle Quest? The PSP version is better (it's got worse controls because stylus > D-Pad for this type of thing, but it's a much better package overall), but it's still damn addictive. Not your typical RPG but surely one of the best.

    @Guild-

    Dude, what game has taken and done time travel "better" than Chrono Trigger (in a similar style or whatever). Because i want to play that game. I've never seen time travel done as well as it was in CT. Rarely have i ever even seen it done in games period.

    And how can the same game (FF4) be boring on one system but not the other? Especially when all it really adds up to is updated graphics?

    Lastly, i'd wonder how someone can fault KH for being repetitive and not Pokemon. No offense. The rest of your opinions are your own and fair.

    I agree with Guild on Dragon Quest & FFIV, and would switch pokemon with Disgaea.
    About FFIV, I wouldn't call the DSs' 3D graphics better than good old sprites and I think the gba had extra dungions.
    yay! lunar knights! it should be a bit higher.
    Sands of Destruction should be #7.
    move mario back to 10.
    some others and stuff I can't think of.

    I personally enjoy Lunar Knights, but i find it a watered down sequel to the Boktai games. I found the space flight parts extremely annoying to control and just horrible overall. And i wasn't a huge fan that they cut out most of any stealth and puzzle elements that made the Boktai games so enjoyable. It's a shame Boktai 3 never got a US release, but at least someone translated that (wasn't it DarthNemesis or did i mix it up?). LK is a bittersweet game for me. I feel like i'm torturing myself through the space parts though to get to the fun parts.

    While Dragon Quest V is a damn good game, I was stopped playing it just when I was about to beat it because honestly, it go a bit dull after a while. Good game, but the old school Rpg formula just a got a bit dull for me. Lunar Knights felt a bit uneven to me, the first 4 chapters where really easy, but when I got to the 5th chapter I found myself dying constantly

    some ported titles on your list, I was hoping it was made up of just new games on the DS.

    but I will go ahead and try Devil Survivor and Suikoden. thanks.

    I skimmed over the posted list, and I agree with just about everything except for the exclusion of Puzzle Quest, but then again that's just my opinion so whatever.
    Nice job though
