I wish there were a chef's kiss emoji on here. Phantasy Star IV is just that. *chef's kiss* So good - glad you enjoyed it again after all these years.

Dude totally agree. I really cant believe I didnt play it sooner. It was such a fun trip down memory lane. I was starting to feel like i was getting burnt out with RPGs to be honest and then this comes along and just reignited the fire.

25. Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium (Gen) 7/10/2022


Close to 27 years ago I played my very first RPG and it totally blew my mind. That RPG was Phantasy Star IV. This game single handedly started my obsession with JPRGs, so it’s a little weird to think that the first time I played it was also the last… It’s been 27 years... 27 years! And I still remember almost every moment of this game; that right there should give you an idea of the kind of impact it had on me. It really was so refreshing playing through this game after all that time; it’s renewed my interest in RPGS and I can’t wait to dive into some more!

24. Kena: Bridge of Spirits (PS5) 6/29/2022

I know I was going to love this game the moment I saw it’s first trailer and after finally playing through it I can say I was totally right. It felt like @emberlab pulled elements from some of my all-time favorite games and wrapped them up in a nice Pixar looking package. For this being the studios first game, I’d have to say they did an amazing job and I honestly cant wait to see what they do next; if they do a sequel it’d be pretty cool to see if they expand on the village restoration element. I’d love to see something like the town building in Dark Cloud..

23. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge (XSX) 6/26/22

Talk about an absolute fucking blast! I’m not the biggest beat’em ups fan, but after seeing all the hype, it was hard not to give it a shot. And after finishing I can see why everyone is talking about it; it’s pure nostalgia mixed with near perfect gameplay. I kinda want to try some other beat’em ups but somehow, I’m guessing it’s going to be hard to find one as good as this.

I've been really thinking about doing the trial of apple arcade just to play Fantasian. Its like the one mobile game I've ever really been interested in, just waiting for the right time while I continue to hope it gets ported to the switch lol

22. Mario Golf: Super Rush (Switch)

I really used to like Hot Shots Golf back in the day so I was kinda hoping that Mario Golf have a similar feel; and while it did at first, it gradually became less and less like Hot Shots. Overall the game was just kinda meh.. some parts good, others annoying, and there were several times when the resolution would drop down so low I thought I was playing the damn game on a graphing calculator or something. It wasn’t terrible, but just not really my thing.

21. Uncharted: Lost Legacy (PS5) 5/20/22

And with that I am finished with the Uncharted series once again. I know this isn’t everyone’s favorite simply because Nathan’s not in it, but I honestly think is actually one of the best in the franchise; just another example of how Naughty Dog gets shit right.

20. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS5) 5/2/22

GOD I FUCKING LOVE THIS FRANCHISE! Every minute of this game was just perfect, I didn’t want it to end. I know I have Lost Legacy to play, but there’s just something a little sad about finishing up Nathan’s story; I really hope they bring him back for a new game soon.

19. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Switch) 4/26/22

You know, for all the hours I spent playing this game over the years, I don’t think I ever actually finished it; so it felt pretty good having finally done so. No need to really say much about this game, its one of the greatest of all time, ‘nuf said. Although I will say it was a little weird playing it on a Nintendo console lol

Lord help me, I re-upped my World of Warcraft subscription.

I've been playing a bit too... just casually though.. i can keep it casual right??? RIGHT?

I've not played in like 7 years, so I've got a lot of content / lore to catch up on, so hopefully that'll keep me relatively casual along with achievement / mount hunting.

Its actually pretty easy to play casually right now. i've just been leveling alts and farming for mounts and transmog sets. Shoot me private message if you wanna add me on your battle.net account.

18. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (PS4) 4/8/22

I know this one isn’t considered one of the best of the series but to me, its just as good as the rest; crazy twists and turns, amazing dialog and utterly outrageous action. God, I fucking love this franchise.

17. Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64)

UGH I’m really torn on this one. So, since I played this for the first time immediately after Forgotten Land I wasn’t really a fan at first, it just kinda seems bland; but as I continued with it I started to see how it was special. There are a lot of things that have become standard for Kirby that started in this one. The move 2.5D was actually kinda awesome; BUT… and this is a big but… They decided to pull that “The real last boss is locked behind collecting all the shards” bullshit… I really hate that, just let me beat the game the way I want to beat it.

16. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS4) 4/2/22

Ok, I could sit here and talk about how amazing this game is, but by this point I’m guessing pretty much everyone knows it. So instead, I want to bring up something that no one seems to talk about in this game… Do people in real life really just catch someone by the hand who just jumped off a cliff? It happened like 6 times in this game and every time I was just like; nah, don’t believe it… With all the crazy shit that happens in this game, I have no idea why that’s the hill I picked to die on... but here we are lol.

i dont specifically go looking for things, but if i happen to find something like at a good will and i have it on another console i dont mind picking it up. With that said, for a while i was mostly collecting PS3 but when the introduced backwards compatibility in the Xbox one and no Series X I have been buying a bunch of PS3 tiles again on 360.. cant beat playing some of these older games with the xbox enhancements offered now.
