Game of the decade 1990-1999
  • From Tetris to Soul Calibur and Shenmue in one decade.
    Quite a leap indeed.

  • Surprised no live for kick off 2
    Currently playing; Pokemon Lets go Evee and Clash Royale
  • I would have been sensible soccer myself. Kick off never felt like football game to me, and I never really saw the appeal. Might be because the first time I tried it was the c64 version (bought because of huge hype in the mags) but even when I tried the amiga version later I still didn't get it.

    Probably won’t get any replays either.

  • Kick Off 2 was far better than Sensible Soccer.
  • The first level of GTA was in my view perfect. The latter ones really needed perfection across too long to feel doable.
  • Riven (the sequel to Myst) is definitely in my top 3 for the decade, probably number one. Incredible game, possibly still the peak of the genre and still wonderful to experience today.
  • Has Mario64 won yet?

  • Mario 64 is completely overrated as a game and I kind of hate it.

    To me it’s like if they made Fifa 2021 and it was a tennis game.
  • The takes are coming hot folks.
    I'm still great and you still love it.

    I feel like there are loads more also rans or worthy contenders lurking back there in the old grey matter if I think more.
    Don't try and place me in a box, you cocks. If there's one thing I'm not, it's fucking rectangular.
  • Fucking Tony Hawks and 1080 easily up here as well, can't believe I had to get them after a longer think.

    The third sequel in the Real Monsters series?
    Joustus is served.
  • Doom/Doom2 is a weird one, the sequel has the super shotgun and better monster list, but the og is clearly superior in levels.

    I'm not sure it's worth it anymore. I didn't get far with SF2 when I started it on the MD collection recently. They're games that defined a genre for me, and were perfect at the time, but the games that came after are so much more advanced and refined that it's difficult to take the step back.
  • 10 years that take me from the ST to the PlayStation.

    I've just repurposed an old laptop as an emulation machine so I'll be replaying my choices to see if they're still as good as I remember.

  • 0. Chrono Triger, SNES
    1. Civilisation 2, PC
    2. Doom 2, PC
    3. Prince of Persia, PC
    4. Vandal Hearts 1 and/or 2, PSX
    5. Goldeneye, N64
    6. Resident evil, Psx
    7. Grand Theft Auto, PC
    8. SF2, SNES
    9. Champ Man 95/96, PC
    10. Panzer Dragoon I guess.

    I put in a 0. Because I only played chrono trigger on a rom, and then I played the DS version. It is for me one of the best games I've ever played, and to think that it was released in 93/94, was incredible to me. But I didn't play it at the time, didn't have a snes (my cousin in America had one and I rinsed sf2). So it's at 0. I guess panzer dragoon can go if that still counts


    Prepare for disappointment

  • Thoughts on splitting the Street Fighter 2 votes for different versions?

    I can see why, but they're all kind of the same game to me, with iterations improving (or not) on it over time. Might be a similar argument for annual update games I suppose. It's a tricky one.
