    This is at the top of my list and has been since I first heard about it. The newest DMC was decent, but not my favorite. But Heavenly Sword and Enslaved were both really memorable stories for me. I hope this one resonates with me the same way

    When a long time friend showed this to me I was giddy. Until I went and looked it up myself to find that it was a remake to Super Metroid.

    I find it impossible that I'm the only person that wants to see what happened after Metroid Fusion. This is just depressing. I have no lost love for Super Metroid. Since it has been released I think I've bought it like 6 times. But a Super Metroid release should be a pack in for a Metroid Fusion sequel or something. They've certainly had the time... I just don't even

    In Tyranny is it only playing the bad guy? Or can you play a bad guy without being a bad guy?

    I aspire to not be a jerk *sometimes* and this one just didn't talk to me. I love Obsidian though, and am questioning that resolve.

    I know this comment may get lost in the mix of time, but I just had to say...

    I finished this game (Mass Effect Andromeda) after around 80 hours and feel that even if it is not the most interesting story to grace a console it is quite good. For those who are Mass Effect players (1, 2, or 3) just play this game. It has throwbacks to all 3 games in various different ways.

    By the time I was done I was the explorer class with weapons that used the "Vintage Heat Sink" that made my sniper rifles and pistols act like the overcharged weapons in ME1. The lack of usable skills really does hurt this game (only 3 can be used at a time) and you can set up 12 all together, but using them in battle is just not viable. If there were 4 or even 5 usable this would be my favorite ME for the combat alone.

    The exploration is WAY more interesting than the last gen games. I know that is not a popular opinion, but when you go back and play ME1 everything was just a variation of the same 2 or 3 themes. Some of the driving was annoying when you had to get to a really high plateau or something, but for me that was about it.

    The characters are not as interesting as ME2 but for my money the loyalty missions were pretty decent overall. I really hope they strive for something a little larger next time, if they polish a bit more next time it will be the best game to date by far.

    In closing I have a thing I like to say about Dark Souls. I'd rather play a bad Dark Souls than any other game. It's my type of game. I'd also play a bad Mass Effect in that same way other than any other scifi game. If you think this sounds like you, just play this game. It's my 2nd favorite Mass Effect over all and that, to me, says everything you need.

    @metalangel I think they could have a swap button for the bottom screen and do 3ds and ds backwards support. Hit a button and flip to the bottom screen, then it would exemplify the switch moniker. With so many games as said elsewhere eliminating the bottom screen I have plenty I'd play on something like that.

    @Flojomojo Look at those pictures. Maybe on a handheld that looks ok, but if I saw something I bought put that on my tv/screen/monitor I'd likely consider it a poor product. Sure it's always better to use original hardware, but these companies are just being lazy! Even the 40 games on that handheld you bought is just lazy, at this rate Sega should buy all rights to all genesis games and put out a real handheld that shows us why they were great. Instead they make rock soup

    While we're at it, where is my Dreamcast handheld bitches!!?

    Those screenshots look awful, is that what that thing puts out? It likely died of shame.

    @DeBriefBarbie I won't downvote you for keeping it real, but this is a hypothetical situation we're discussing. Most everyone would find a mixture of enjoying last moments with loved ones and flailing arms about randomly.

    But in the "last game you play before the end of things" discussion what would your last enjoyment of the media be? In my list below I gave Star Control 2 as mine, as it made the most impact of any story that I have participated in. The list of games would be monumental but that one struck me somewhere special

    Star Control 2 - 3do specifically. On my last gaming session that seems perfect.
