    This makes no sense. I don't play games in order to waste time, I play them despite wasting time. This is like measuring the value of candy by trying to maximize calories.

    This is worthless. All of the gaming stuff is either hundreds of dollars or knock-offs.

    I prefer the old one. It reminds me of video games. The new E3 logo reminds me of logos companies like Konami started using after they stopped making video games.

    @FalcoT Yeah, the character names of the Coon and Fastpass don't give me high hopes, and neither did the E3 preview with unintentional child molestation. I'm not saying people should never break taboos with jokes about race, disabilities, or even sexual assault, it just rubs me the wrong way that the creators of South Park feel entitled to do it when other people's perspectives would be a lot more interesting.

    For anyone who is on the fence about buying Ys VIII: the game is a lot of fun and you should give it a try.

    I already have the original release, but I never cashed in Fight Money for new characters. I will gladly buy this version in order to get the new characters and have the updated version on a disc.

    The main update I would like to see added to Street Fighter V is to make it so online matchmaking is based on your ranking for each individual character rather than a ranking overall. If your opponents are chosen based on your overall ranking, you never have a chance to try a new character against people you might beat, and it creates a disincentive against trying a variety of characters.

    I love the SNES, but it is probably my least favorite of the four main 16-bit consoles. One of the main reasons it gets so much love today is that there is so much more of a consensus of which SNES games are the best, whereas you'll never see two identical top ten lists for the Genesis. If you really like playing a lot of games, the dearth of releases from Nintendo is hard to ignore in light of the numerous and varied releases from Sega. Another big factor is that SNES fans tend to be younger, so a lot more Genesis, Turbo, and Neo-Geo fans aged out and moved on before they could influence opinions on the internet.

    Why would Star Fox 2 cost more when they were able to release Yoshi's Island and all of the other Super FX 2 games at a typical price?

    I'm not excited about many of the games on this list. The games I have pre-ordered that will come out before the end of the year are Super Mario Odyssey, Sonic Forces, Etrian Odyssey V, and the physical release of Patapon for PS4. It seems like a lot of the best games of 2017 are already out, which is fine with me; I still have plenty left to play in Ys VIII and Everybody's Golf, and then there's always stuff that has been piling up for older consoles...

    The Toys R Us model was great. All of the games were in pristine condition: no price tags, no manhandling from customers.
