How do you pronounce that shit? I thought it was a pretty lame idea, I don't see the appeal of android games on a home console as that kind of defeats the purpose of most of them especially when I could play something far better instead. Whatever though, the funding show's there's plenty of people interested, it's just not for me.

I think you underestimate the potential of the android library.

There are your regular FPSs, RPGs, etc and some pretty hardware demanding ones at that (N.O.V.A. 3?). And then there's emulation again, at the moment, I think we can only really go as far as the fifth generation (PS1, N64) and Handhelds (DS for sure is possible, PSP, 3DS and Vita maybe not).

It's not just games either, you can stream a lot of online services on it (such as Hulu, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, etc) and it's full capable of watching x264 and XVid formats, so it's a fully fledged multi-media machine aswell. Hell, for $95 you could get a media center a lot worse, and for a lot more you could get a media center that doesn't offer anything else (Apple TV?)

I can understand if you're not interested though.

Personally, I'd already be playing classic games on my 32" TV if I had a PS3 controller. I think technology today really is wonderful.

I was actually surprised at some of the games that made it onto my list. I reckon that if I were to replay some of those games they'd no longer be on the list but I was basing my opinion on how I found the games when they were still "new", which I think is how these lists should be made. In most cases, I've not actually played most of those games since they were released.

The PS2 and Xbox 360 made up my entire list because those are the platforms I spent most time on. I've played a lot of the classic retro titles over the last few years, but it's hard to call them my favourite games now that I'm playing them when they're dated. I can still see why they are regarded as great games by those who originally played them, but for me, it's hard to say "wow this is amazing" when I'm playing something that's 20-30 years old.

Also can't believe that I forgot to put Pokemon Silver on my list!

Sure there's plenty of games worth playing but very few, if any, would compare to an average current gen game. I can already emulate on my PC.

It's not just games either, you can stream a lot of online services on it

I can already do that on my PC and phone though, or on a tablet if I wanted one, and probably quite a few through my Xbox if I could be arsed.

I just don't see why you'd buy a device which can do nothing you can't already do on multiple others you already own.

I've not been gaming much at all recently. My parents have been away in Greece for the past week now and I still have a few days left before they come back. As a result I've been having to clean the house (my brother is still here, making mess), take care of the numerous pets which involves taking the dog for two walks each day which typically last about an hour. It's hard work compared to what I usually do, but I actually like it. Makes me feel like I have a purpose during the summer months. Even if it was only for a week and a half.

Been playing some Red Dead Redemption and GTA IV again. Both games I've previously beat but I was in the mood for some Rockstar. Just wish I still had my Xbox Live Gold so that I could piss about with some Battlefield 3 online. Been a while since I last played that.

Scary to think that there's less than two months of my summer left already. It really has flown by this year where as it usually drags itself out.

Is this because of the anime cut scenes? Usually I'm not really all that into anime but there are certain exceptions. This was one.

Really wish that I had more Master System and Mega Drive (Genesis) games. I love the 8 and 16 bit consoles but due to how expensive it is to collect for the Nintendo systems over here I've stuck with Sega.

Whenever I next have some money to burn I think that I'll most definitely be expanding my Sega collections. I just never seem to have much spare cash these days and the only place for me to get hold of this stuff is on eBay, so it's not exactly cheap. Although I hate to think how much of my income will be spent on my game collecting hobby once I'm in full time employment.

Also on the look out for a Master System controller but it's rare to see one sell for a reasonable price on eBay.

If you had to play games from only one developer, who would it be?

I'm gonna say Bethesda, stongest batting average I'd say. Even the games they spew out with less-than-excellent reviews, are relatively enjoyable.

Since Morrowind, Bethesda haven't really developed any games that were met with less than excellent reviews

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (2002)
IHRA Professional Drag Racing 2005 (2004)
IHRA Drag Racing: Sportsman Edition (2006)
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (2006)
Fallout 3 (2008)
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011)

I can't really comment on the Drag Racing games, but the rest have all been top notch titles. I love Bethesda as developers but they don't develop games often enough I don't think I'd pick them as developers that I could exclusively play their games.

I'd possibly go with Rockstar Games, although that may be cheating because they've bought out a good few development studios over the years.

No doubt that Bethesda produce quality - the only upside to a low output of games, is that you can get weeks of non-stop entertainment out of one game, before it gets too stale.

I never got into any of the more popular Rockstar franchises, GTA, RDR, etc. Maybe GTA:SA, but otherwise I found they were all the same thing basically - with different graphics and settings. But hey, I'm a fantasy nerd.

I think I always regretted picking the PSP over the DS when they were released, but out of nowhere my brother just handed me his DS, a Gameboy Advance SP, Pokemon Leaf Green and Pokemon Emerald. Finally I have a DS, I think. I'm going to assume that it's pretty much mine now, although I think he gave me it because he noticed that I've been putting stuff on display in recent months. He said he never uses it anyway.

I'll probably find myself scouring eBay when I have some spare cash for cheap DS games, because I feel like this system had a lot of games that I'd enjoy and when I've glanced over the DS section of eBay in the past, a lot of the titles don't seem to sell for ridiculous amounts. Chrono Trigger is the first DS game that stands out as "I WANT THAT!" but unfortunately it is a bit more expensive.

Anyone able to recommend some good DS games? I'm sure I'll find plenty by just browsing eBay, but it would be nice to get some ideas of things to specifically look out for.

Just won an eBay auction for a game that I believe is fairly uncommon (going by UK ebay) or possibly even slightly rare. I've seen plenty re-released "platinum" type copies of this game but I managed to get a proper black label version of Grandia on PS1. It seems to be about a £20 game usually and I managed to get it for £11.75. Got some money for house sitting and I though I'd finally get myself a copy as a treat. Don't like spending that much on retro titles but this one is meant to be a bit of an under rated gem.

Anyone have experience with Grandia? I'm so hyped for it to arrive now.

For the life of me, I've never heard of the game.

I've started to collect games more, even if Im not to keen on it, but get it for the right price. Keeping the discs/manuals in a folder, and putting the cases in storage. One day they'll be worth a lot of money, or entertainment.

Or maybe neither, but its nice to collect something...

It definitely seem to be one of those more uncommon gems on the PS1. I've watched a few reviews on YouTube and read some too. Most of the people who've played it list it as being in their top 10 games, so it definitely sounds promising!

I'm curious as to why you split the the box from the game/manual. I have most of my game collection on display in my room now. It looks nice and it means that everything is easy for me to access, because I don't collect just to let them sit in a shelf. I collect and play most of what I buy.

Yesterday I bought a lot of games from eBay. Some because they were cheap and worth a shot, others because I've been wanting to play them. For any of you who are subscribed to me on YouTube they'll be in a video at some point. Here's a quick list of what I bought though:

Resident Evil (2002 GameCube remake)
Resident Evil 4 (GameCube)
Alien Trilogy (PS1)
Devil May Cry 1-3 (PS2)
Tomb Raider (Saturn)

Was also at a car boot sale today and got what I consider to be an amazing find! So I went around most of the vendors and found nothing of interest. Then I decided to take a look around the vans that sell stuff. Usually there's no point because it's game re-sellers who charge silly amounts.

I got to one van that had LOADS of games. He had a massive pile all marked at £1. Nothing of interest in there. Moved onto his individually priced games and it was all over priced shit. However, whilst flicking through the overpriced shit I saw a Ys game on PS2 marked at £4. I couldn't believe it. A Ys game for £4?! I bought it and he was like "that's a collectors item" and expected him to tell me he priced it wrong, but no, he gave me it.

Now the cover art and instruction manual are water damaged fairly badly. Cover art looks fine but parts of the art are stuck to the case and cant be removed without ripping, but as long as I keep them in that box it looks fine. The manual is badly water damaged on some pages. Pages had at one point been stuck together and then forced open because there's a few ripped pages. Still, it's like a £20+ game and fairly rare in PAL regions. There's currently only two copies of this game on eBay UK.

Awesome bargain. Yet to test the game though. It's not meant to be the best of the Ys series, but I've always wanted to see what this series was like and £4 was an awesome deal!

Has anyone worked with GECK to mod Fallout 3 or New Vegas?

I started a little project to make my own in game radio station. Surprisingly, it wasn't as complex as I originally thought, although it did take a lot of trial and error to get the mod to work properly. I got sick of the vanilla songs after hearing them for 20+ hours, so I compiled 30 (creative commons) ambient/drone tracks and added 10 numberstations into the mix. I also did some normalizing and some DSP to add some warmth and make the tracks mesh together nicely.

Overall, it came out great and adds a lot of atmosphere to the game. I have the Nevada Skies mod which makes night nearly pitch black and walking around with some dark ambient music with just my pipboy light is awesome.

I'll probably toss it up on New Vegas Nexus at some point, although I'm sure this is sort of a niche kind of mod :o

Now that you mention it, did he do a sort of "look at the Ys series" recently or did I just watch an old video of his? I've known about Ys for a while but had no idea what the games were like. I just always had it in my head as an expensive series of JRPG games that occasionally saw English releases, although I'm not even sure my description is accurate.

Given how bad the water damage is though, the disc is in near mint condition. Not a scratch on it and runs fine. I was sort of expecting it not to work, because he obviously knew what he was selling when he told me "it's a collectors item".

Apparently it's only a 12 hour game though, so I'll maybe just play through it during the week.

Its not that I wouldn't be playing the games, but I would feel like the disc/manual would be in the ultimate safe place if they were in a soft little padded folder ;)

20 years time, mint condition games with manuals and all may be a rarity. Then I've accomplished something.

I'm a bit of a freak like that. Like I wouldn't even be interested in adding preowned games to my collection.

This morning I sold my Gamecube to a friend who was willing to pay $50 and I gladly accepted since I play all my GC games on the Wii now anyway. I mainly did this to get some money for games I've been wanting: Mafia II, The Conduit, Batman: Arkham City, but also did it because I was thinking of getting some more PS1 games. I need to make more use of my PS2's backwards compatibility since I only have 3 PS1 games. I have had several games in mind already like Doom, Rayman 2, Quake II and Grandia. The games I already have are Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy Tactics and Castlevania: SOTN. I didn't want to make a thread asking what PS1 games I should buy because I've already seen way to many of those but which ones would you guys recommend for someone who is basically quite new to the PS1?

Ah right, I see. Although I manuals seem to remain in decent enough condition when they're sitting in the box. Although I guess if you're willing to go to the extra effort to preserve them, that's pretty cool. For me it would just be too much hassle.

As for pre-owned games, they're about all I buy these days. Although I'm not too bothered about my games being in pristine condition. For the most part I like my games to be boxed with the manual, but for older systems that stored games in cardboard boxes and had flimsy little manuals, I'm willing to compromise because it can cost way too much to get a boxed copy of those.

Breath of Fire IV
Crash Bandicoot 1-3
Grand Theft Auto 1, London and 2
Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey and Abe's Exoddus
Tomb Raider games

They're the good PS1 games that I have. Alien Trilogy seem to be alright, but if you're getting Doom maybe you wont want it. Probably a very similar game.

Only if it's pre-owned. If not then I think you should go back to the store and ask them.

It might actually be that Platinun copies don't have manuals but I doubt that a lot.

Hell yes to Crash and Oddworld. Can't say I was a big fan of the topdown GTA games but as for Tomb Raider, even if the controls haven't aged well, the first three games are worth playing. At least these controls are more stable than the modern games. The Last Revelation and Chronicles need to be forgotten.

Last Revelation wasn't that bad, I liked it more than III.

Then again I also liked Legend and Anniversary more than III. Angel of Darkness is the only truly terrible Tomb Raider game imo. Chronicles and Underworld were just mediocre.

As for PS1 games I'd add Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX, Resident Evil 1-3, Silent Hill, Spyro 3, Vagrant Story and maybe Tekken 3 to Dean's list.

Last Revelation wouldn't have been so bad if it had more variety to the environments. After playing the previous games, you don't feel you're being offered as much as the other games did. That and the way they changed the saving system for the PS1 was piss poor. The moment the game glitches on you, you're back to square one! I also felt Last Revelation was really longwinded and never really got past the first two levels of Cairo. Then again, I feel going through the whole game will never be worth it if they made a huge mess with the whole Lara is dead plot point.

As for PS1 games I'd add Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX, Resident Evil 1-3, Silent Hill, Spyro 3, Vagrant Story and maybe Tekken 3 to Dean's list.

I still need to get Spyro 2 and 3 again. I only got Spyro 1 last year but when looking back at Spyro 2, I've noticed how the voice acting has aged badly.

You're probably right about the old GTA games actually, Bahamut. I played them recently and they're really not as fun as they once were. I guess they've just not aged so well.

I've still not gotten around to playing that Ys game yet. I've got so many games that I want to play just now that it's hard to play them all. I tend to focus on one game at a time rather than go back and forth between several.

Right now it's Breath of Fire IV that has my attention. It's my aim to beat this and then move on to Grandia although seeing as Ys: The Ark of Napishtim is a far shorter game, I may try to play through that before moving onto Grandia. I think it's about 12 hours in comparison to 50ish hours I imagine it will take to beat Grandia, although it advertises 80 hours on the back of the box!

I try to be laid back on the video games forum here but goddamn, when will we get a short break from all the hardest/easiest games, best/worst games, Xbox 360 vs PS3, etc? So much for me thinking we could possibly have a month where we don't fall into the same old repeated threads. However, the top 10 VG games from The-Great-One is an exception to me as there's real explanations in that thread and Dean's thread on notoriously bad games that you've played is also a fresher topic idea. With that, it was good to find out which universally bad games people have played just to find out how bad they really are.

I only played GTA1 for 30 minutes and found myself wanting to jump into GTA3 due to the 3D environments which I feel the game series makes better use of as opposed to the topdown gameplay. With the sandbox freedom, I was enjoying driving around the place whereas GTA1, I drive recklessly and I just crash easily because I can't see vehicles ahead of me. I have to admit, I am itching to play some GTA right now.
