razyjean: Fano: viscountalpha: Great, every game company is now DLC whoring out the software.

I was once told they would make us buy an 80$ video game. They have done it.

Phantasy Star II cost eighty bucks iirc

I paid $95 for Super Mario RPG when it first came out. Think about that. Almost a hundred bucks for a cartridge. But, I still have the game and even play it on occasion, so... there's that.


And if you held on to the box and manual and other accessories, you'd easily get over 200 for the set on Ebay. Didn't your parents ever tell you to take care of your video games?

eldritch2k4: This is not even close to true. Your $60 gets you a game with a beginning, middle and an end. For years we were fine with paying (much more, I might add) for Expansion Packs. Well...a rose by any other name.


The deal is that was pre-DRM and expansion packs could be carried to another PC with no problem. Now, your DLC is tied to your console and can't be taken with you or re-sold. It becomes wasteful pretty quick.

I believe I paid $80 for Chrono Trigger when it came out.


Considering that I've bought Chrono Trigger for the SNES, DS and Android, I've probably spent $80 on the game total.

...worth it.

I do have the manual, but not the box. The only boxes I have are to my collector's edition (gold cart) N64 Zelda games, but I have no plans of selling them, even though I don't have an N64 anymore.

While it is true that you can't resell DLC, the software is actually tied to your gamertag. You can load your DLC on any system you are logged into PSN or Live on and, if you get a new console, you just have to complete a 5 minute form online to transfer the home license to the new console.

tom baker's scarf: can't possibly be worse than battletoads.


The Lost World for the PS1 was ridiculous. Impossible even with cheat codes. Hell, even the T-Rex level, where you think you'd be freaking unbeatable, you get eaten to death by compys (little dinosaurs) in the first 30 seconds.

You just brought back painful memories, sir. I had long-since blocked out that Christmas evening.

Ishkur: Fano: Phantasy Star II cost eighty bucks iirc

And worth every penny.

/my god.... the dungeons just keep going on forever...


On black Friday, i bought a Sega Genesis collection for the Xbox360. I am still working through Shining Force 1, then I will go to SF2, Shining in the Darkness, then if I am going to torture myself, Phantasy Star 1, before feeling I am ready to take on PS 2, again, for like the 14th time. i have never finished it, but one of my friends borrowed my system in middle school and beat it over a summer so I have seen the ending.

Twitch Boy: MOVE FASTER POKEY!


"Hey, Jon! Don't eat the mushroom!"

Speaking of Super Mario World, some of the stages in the original game were hard enough without the retarded Kaizo stuff. Soda Lake, Butter Bridge 1, Valley of Bowser Fortress, and all of the Special World stages were hell on my younger self.

Haha, my second game console after a hand-me-down NES was an x-mas morning PS1. It came with a demo disc and my parents rented The Lost World to try out. I played the Tomb Raider II and Crash 2 all weekend (and for months after) because I couldn't get past 1/2 of Level 1 in JP. I remember being amazed at the FMV of the dinosaur walking in and chomping the logo on the title screen though - couldn't believe that sort of graphical power was in my very own TV at long last.

My brother bought Assassin's Creed 3 for PS3 via digital. So far, under that one license, we've had 3 different systems playing it. A 2 console maximum for activations doesn't do anything to stop us from doing so, just means we call each other to take all of 10 seconds to deactivate the account so the other person can play. As for PC, both my brother and a good friend of mine have access to all 150+ games in my library when they feel like it. They stay in offline mode (they don't want to converse with my friends anyway) unless they want to download a game and they do so when I'm not home. There is nothing difficult about sharing your games, the only inconvenience is you don't have a disc to install off of.

Ate some 'shrooms with a couple friends one night, and we decided to break out the SNES and play Super Mario World from the beginning. Beat all but 2 of the Star Road levels. I'm hard pressed to find another life achievement I'm more proud of.
