    I agree with your general point but since I stick to old games entirely these days, I haven't played either of the games you mentioned so I have no opinion of either, but yeah, hype definitely plays a big role and it always has. Difference is, games released when I was growing up, and lots of them were terrible so don't get me wrong, were at least more or less finished and while we couldn't play online, we also didn't have to deal with DLC, microtrans BS and all that bad stuff either.

    As an aside, I'd prefer a game be released complete with PS2-level graphics(jaggies included!) than pay $60 for an incomplete game full of DLC scams. A good art style trumps things like poly count, texture res etc etc. See Capcom's 2d arcade games as well as many SNK games among countless others for good examples of that, because many of those games still look GOOD. Vampire Savior anyone?

    Migthy No. 9 is fun and I'm glad it's not just a Megaman clone. There's a lot of stuff in it that makes it more enjoyable than the original Megaman games IMO.

    I don't know if this has already been said. But Pokemon Gen III are not only the worst Pokemon games but just objectively badly designed games.

    Sonic Unleashed is a good game
    Pokémon Gen 5 is nice and original and X/Y is kinda bland
    Typhlosion is the best starter evolution ever

    First person view is actually starting to get boring when it comes to RPG games, I think art style should determined if a game should be first or third.

    I wish Disney never gave up on Spectrobes, it would've been a good competition with Pokemon, I honestly thought the Spectrobes series was better than Pokemon despite it only being 2 titles released on the DS. I love the fact that I could bring bring monster back to life once I use fossil machine (Forgot what it's called been so long lol).

    I hate the fact that some games have to be called a clone like God Eater since it is in the Monster Hunter genre what exactly makes it a clone? I mean its has similarities (Better game in it's own right), but it is not equivalent to that new PS4 game Genshin Impact (It's looks good i'll probably buy it if i had a PS4 lol) which looks strikingly like an exact copy of Zelda Breath of the Wild...

    I disagree.

    Gen III is the only one that I respect because they run at 60FPS.

    Every other main series Pokemon game runs at 30FPS.. eew.

    One of the crappy things about Monster Hunter style games is that if it isn't Monster Hunter it's playerbase will die. Freedom Wars is dead, Toukiden 2 is dead, Soul Sacrifice Delta is essentially dead, and I don't know about God Eater games, but I doubt there are many people on multiplayer.

    Secret of Mana is a bad game with cluncy action battle mechanics and a suicidal AI.

    I don't like Doom (2016). It's a good game, but I prefer slower paced shooters.

    Sonic Forces is better than Super Mario Odyssey. Odyssey just feels too floaty and long compared to Sonic Forces.

    New AAA games are just tech demos to me, therefore all I care about is how amazing they look and sound. If I want good gameplay I can just play something from the 80s or 90s.

    that's a pretty flawed logic
    so in 20 years from now you're going to enjoy the games of today?

    as for my opinion:
    the last remnant wasn't actually that hard to beat once you figure out what you're doing wrong

    No idea how you drew that conclusion. I'm not using some kind of algorithm, my preference will still remain 80s and 90s no matter how old I get. But thanks for affirming my post belongs in this thread.

    Botw. It's an ok game but a 10/10 masterpiece it isn't.

    Because back in those years, those game would've been tech demos for that time, but tried and true for this day and age.
    Same would then go for games of this day and age being tried and true in 203x
    I agree though, I enjoy older games more than the newer with an exception every now and then.

    FF7 and LttP are not the best of their series.

    FF7 int he US wasn't even good to begin with.
