    I really liked that it was possible to screenshot games with Miiverse. If that option was still available on 3DS or Wii U that would be great...

    I love the amount of post game content in recent Mario games. Galaxy 2 had extra green stars, 3D Land and World had copious amounts of levels (3D Land in particular). I would love to see more content like Galaxy 2's Throwback Galaxy. I love seeing Mario 64 levels redone. I would pay more money than I would like to admit for DLC of remakes of Mario 64 or Sunshine levels. Just for the chance to play them with updated controls and camera work.
    Long live Mario!

    My first instinct was to say Final Fantasy VII, for sure. Up to that time, it had been 8 and 16 bit for me with a little Atari before...so seeing a game like Final Fantasy VII was mind-blowing. Of course it just kept getting better.
    Unfortunately, with improved graphics, the illusion is lost.
    Pixel art, or even a painter aesthetic, in many ways continues the illusion in a way that 3D models can't. Even a beautiful game like Horizon Zero Dawn can't capture the essence that was found (for me) in Secret of Mana, but something like Valkyria Chronicles can.
    For me, Windwaker still holds up and even more so since the Wii U version. Art direction is huge. It's not the realism...it's the feeling of the place. It's the art and the music. Which is one reason that the Upperland Forest from Secret of Mana will forever be in my mind and heart as one of the most beautiful sections of a game I have ever played. It is why the Forgotten City in Final Fantasy VII with its haunting melody will always be a place I hate moving on from...even though the story takes a tragic turn. Maybe that adds to it. I feel that is why Breath of the Wild is so immersive...it's not just the graphics, it's the feel. It's amazing.
    I wish more developers would remember the simple art of making a game. It's not realism...we already have that. It's the escape to a foreign place. The games that bring that feeling, are those whose graphics stand the test of time, in my opinion anyway...Edited last month by Unknown

    @ajhopwood I also recorded the cut scenes from VII on VHS. The 90s were gnarly.

    Like many others here: It was an okay game. But when you've played Super Metroid and Metroid Prime...
    Other M just can't keep up. I didn't really get annoyed by Samus though...seeing as she started as a rookie with Adam, it was somewhat understandable that both of them would fall back into that relationship. Not saying it's a great thing, just I can see how it would happen.
    Adam should have trusted her more though.
    Really though, rt does seem like quite a digression for such an awesome character.
    Great review.
    I will probably play this again sometime...
    Will I finish again though?

    @The-Challenger I guess after the inclusion of Ni No Kuni I thought it deserved a mention. I should have paid a bit more attention to the 2d nature of the article!Edited last month by Unknown

    What about Wind Waker? Whether it was influenced by animation or not, it looks like a living cartoon. Especially on Wii U.

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

    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.

    Looks...fun. Probably. Shorten the characters. Shorten the load times! Right?
