Which Games Would Be Better In First-Person?

Street Fighter as an FPF (first-person fighter)?

Street Fighter as an FPF (first person shooter)???

GamesRadar.com has an opinion piece up that discusses their choices for five games that are played in third-person, that they think would be better in first-person.  You can check out the story here, but I think there are a couple more that would be good, if not great, as well.

Beyond that, in light of Halo Wars upcoming in February (supposedly), I’d like to tackle the opposite argument and discuss my picks for games that should be in 3rd person. Read the rest of this entry »

For Those About to “BARF!” We Salute You

19 11 2008

So today was another Rock Band day with friends Justin, as well as Natalie.  We had a great time, and like always, rocked it hard. 

However, after friends left, and kids were put to bed, I didn’t quite want to end my gaming night.  So I turned on the Wii, and loaded up the Virtual Console game (originally on the Nintendo Entertainment System):

River City Ransom.  

And while I remember playing it as a kid, I don’t think I had ANY idea what I was doing.  Tonight, however, was a different story.  I beat it.  (YAY!!!)  Which was a very cool experience.  The whole game took me probably about 3 hours to beat.  (Although knowing what I’m doing now, I’m pretty sure I could get that under one hour a next time.)

But it brought back many nostalgic memories, playing an old NES game that I had as a kid… What about you peeps?  Any games that you never finished that you feel should be dusted off at some point?  What game makes you wax nostalgic?
