    It's really hard to pick just one...
    Maybe Final Fantasy IX?
    Chrono Cross?
    Breath of the Wild...?
    Ocarina of Time?
    Super Mario 3D World?'s hard.
    Metroid Prime?

    Echoes was definitely a different beast, but I really enjoyed it. I always pride myself that I was finally able to get to the point where the final boss was *almost* a cakewalk. It was definitely a challenge, but I played that game like no other.
    Funnily though, I have been back on the Trilogy Collection and have gotten stuck looking for Sky Temple Keys. Not that I couldn't find them...but going and searching vaguely all over Aether for them just doesn't seem intuitive anymore. Back when it came out though, I didn't let it slow me down. Maybe I ought to get back on it.
    I feel it was definitely a product of its time, but it still holds up well today.
    Now the multiplayer mode? That was a great time in college with the roommates and buddies. We played it many, many times. Loved it.

    This company doesn't really know how to optimize frugally does it? I mean, the PS4 version is sitting at almost 70 gbs. The load times are...horrendous.
    I realize that it is graphically superior (in its own mind) to Zelda...but...Hyrule is HUGE and dense. Whereas Eos is...huge...and unfinished with NPCs with no personality. I can't help but compare the two games. I really enjoyed Final Fantasy XV, but I can't hardly bear to load it up anymore just because I will be waiting for so long just to load my save up.
    Maybe some of you guys know better than I, but it seems like such a programming mess...
    Maybe I'm wrong, I just feel like it could be optimized to be more efficient. Obviously Zelda and Final Fantasy XV are different beasts, and I recognize that Final Fantasy XV is going for realism (ironically), and has textures and locales that strive for that realism (and do a pretty great job), but 170 gbs? Crazy load times? It's cool and all to be pretty and realistic, but...polish it up a bit. Add to the story. Fill in the entire second continent. This game frustrates me like no other.
    It's pretty...Edited last month by Unknown

    I would say Gargoyle's Quest was probably that game for me. I believe I got to the point I could get through the game without dying. I also got quite good at Mega Man 3 & 5. Good times.Edited last month by Unknown

    Posted in USgamer Community Question: What was the first game you were really good at?

  • Avatar for jeffcorry jeffcorry A month ago

    My parents were not gamers. At all. Though I do recall my dad playing Bases Loaded at my uncle's house. He may have dabbled with us kids once in a while...but hardly ever.

    What is online? ;)
    Seriously though. I hardly play online.
    Mario Kart is about it...
    Every few months.

    Oh my heck - those character models from Marvel vs. Capcom were horrid. I was not impressed. I probably am not the target audience anyway, but still, if they're trying to get people interested...that wasn't the way to do it. It was a very mediocre (if not below mediocre) demo experience.
    There have been a few demos that have convinced me to purchase a game: Eternal Sonata, Valkyria Chronicles, Final Fantasy XIII-2 (really...I was going to get it anyway, but it was fun), and several others. Marvel Vs. Capcom is not one of those demos...

    I love the 3D on 3DS. I loved the 3D on PS3. I didn't use it all the time, but it was pretty slick. 3D is something that I look for in my displays, not because I HAVE to have it, but because I like the option.
    Gran Turismo 5 was great with 3D as is Ocarina of Time, Star Fox, and the PS3 Wipeout games. Seriously. Wipeout in 3D is amazing.

    I always love reading about this game. The irony here is that I still have never played it. Perhaps someday. I want to...I just haven't yet.
    Great write up. I love the connection you have with this game. Some games are able to capture a time and place very well and bring it back almost every time you fire it up.
