Hello! This is where you all can recommend games that will then be put into the Game Recommendations section of the website! All you need to supply are the following two items! The end product will look like THIS

  1. Game Name
  2. One Paragraph of why you recommend it!

Example:

PANIC RESTAURANT
One heck of a fun and cute platformer with food that comes to life and tries to stop you from reclaiming your restaurant. Very fun game to sit down with and smash through in one sitting. The NES is full of fun platformers similar to this but the cute art-style and craziness of the enemies make this one stand out a bit more.

Enjoy!

it aint about how hard ya game, it's how hard you can get game over'd and keep gaming forward

Uniracers for SNES has some great fast-paced competitive gameplay for 2 players. You race through tracks avoiding obstacles and taking advantage of shortcuts. Successfully preforming tricks gives you a boost in speed, though if you don't stick the landing you'll suffer a lose of speed. There are also stunt tracks, hit some high jumps and rack up more points than your opponent before time runs out. The unicycles themselves have personality, they're animated display emotions such as frustration, excitement, disappointment, and glee. Who knew unicycles could be so expressive! This intense racing game is all about showing off your sick skills!

Metal Storm 
A very unique NES action/platformer that focuses on the idea of flipping the gravity either up or down. Though relatively short this game packs a nice punch and executes the idea of reversing gravity very well! Something in your way? Better walk on the ceiling and blast through the mounted turrets overhead to get through. A very cool game that is extremely hard to not recommend! Be prepared to be challenged but very fairly so.

Journey to Silius
SunSoft doing what SunSoft knows best and that's jamming out on the NES - amazin' tracks on this one right here! You can definitely tell the game was originally going to be a Terminator game especially the final boss which is kind of cool in its own right. It's a fast paced run and gun action platformer with a nice amount of weapon variety and enemies. Be prepared to shoot up giant metal things because you're gonna wanna when you're jammin to the epic tunes of Journey to Silius.

Well i asked if its ok to add games with no system page set up yet but i didnt hear back so ya just lmk if its a problem heh!!!

PC ENGINE

Star Parodier

Really good shoot em up disc-based game for the PC Engine. It's a parody of Star Soldier, hence the name, but even though it's a joke game, when it comes to fun this game is SERIOUS. you shoot little CDs n stuff and you play as a flying PC Engine. There's all kinds of weird stuff in it to find. Really good soundtrack that uses the CD aspect well. One of my personal favorites on the system if I had to pick.

Ys IV: Dawn of Ys

This game technically isn't in English officially, but there's an entire fan dubbed version with English audio. You can also find the patch with Japanese audio and English text. I highly recommend the former if you can't understand Japanese, since some things are only in audio. Amazing game and IMO the best one on the system and in the Ys series as a whole (maybe even among all RPGs I've played???? Idk I don't wanna go too nuts but this shit is good!!!!). The soundtrack is just legendary, a lot of games I recommended I said had good soundtracks right??? Well they're all trash compared to this thing. It's just freaking mindblowing that this came out in the early 90's. The gameplay is fun but might take getting used to, but most importantly the story and worldbuilding are super solid. I really love the sense of place in this game. I've played it twice now, and honestly I kinda want to play it again cause it's just one of those games where if I talk about it I get the urge to just load it up and chill out to the incredible tunes.

Ys Book I&II

This game is a rerelease of Ys I and Ys II, but it's so much more than the sum of its parts. It actually joins the games together for the first time, letting you transfer your save from one game to the other as you yourself transfer from Esteria to Ys between games. And it adds a soundtrack that's probably only second to Ys IV. It's really incredible and honestly gives it a good run for its money. The gameplay is a little less polished, but the world and everything are very good and for the time this must have been mindblowing. The Super Nintendo wasn't even out yet when this game released, and it has a full CD based soundtrack with real instruments and everything. Not many people had it at the time of course cause being the first CD based console made it super expensive, but this thing sounds incredible next to anything else from the era frankly and it holds up even to today in terms of quality cause it's just that well composed. The cutscenes and story segments, while not as immersive as Ys IV, are very good, and I feel the second game in particular really shines. Don't miss trying this one. Ys III is kind of different from the others and not as well tuned of a game, but its soundtrack is absolutely worth a listen.

Lords of Thunder

Probably one of my favorite shoot-em-ups on the console along with Star Parodier and easily the best version of this. Absolutely ROCKIN' soundtrack and very smooth gameplay on this one. As with a lot of PC Engine games, the soundtrack is what really sets this apart. There's different armors you can use with their own specialties and a shop where you can buy upgrades like more life, more continues, and other stuff, so it has a bit of an RPG element to it too.  You can shoot bullets or use a sword in this one, and it's fairly challenging. Not really any slowdown either to be seen, even with tons of junk everywhere.

 

GBA

Fire Emblem (The Blazing Blade)

The game simply released as "Fire Emblem" in the west, and my first game I played in the series (I played all of them on release except the somewhat new Fire Emblem Echoes). Actually the seventh game in the franchise, but I guess they didn't want us to know that, even though it directly connects with another game they never released here (The Binding Blade). I still have the most good memories of this game out of all of them and I go back to it sometimes, but honestly they're all amazing. Great story here and one of my favorite GBA games. The permadeath system means you will have to be on top of your game or risk losing the people you care about. If you play without resetting the game is way more memorable in my opinion. Amazing stuff!!!

 

NES

Snake's Revenge

YEAH I WENT THERE!!!!!! WHAT???? Known informally and in some gaming media at the time of its release as Metal Gear 2: Snake's Revenge, this game is actually not bad at all and it has a very good soundtrack. It's far better than the botched port of Metal Gear 1, and it has a lot of improvements to the gameplay. It's still got stealth in it, but action is a decent component as well. People hate on this game but I don't think they ever tried it just cause it's non-canon and made fun of, but a fun fact is that Kojima only even made the real Metal Gear 2 for MSX and the rest of the series because this game existed and inspired him to follow up with a sequel that had his spin on it. He didn't even think it was that bad so there!!!! It's pretty reminiscent of Konami's other work around that era which is to say it's DANG GOOD considering!!!

 

Switch

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

THIS IS THE STUFF!!!! WOW!!!!!!! Alright first of all, if you haven't played a Monster Hunter game do it!!! It's great gamer!!!! Second of all maybe World is better to start with than this one but I feel like this one is a better game to be honest. Way more monster variety and hunter styles. This game has a slice of every other game in the series and then some put together in one EPIC adventure!!!! It has a Dark Souls kinda feel to the combat, but it came first!!!! And really the weapons are so unique they're like fighting game characters. If one matchup with a monster is bad you can just switch "characters" and try it with somethin else. And they're ALL FUN!!!! WOW!!! The actual hunting monsters part feels way better than Dark Souls to me, and it's very satisfying. A lot of the monsters have entirely unique things about them so you're always on your toes and never really bored!!! Add me and we can kill some EPIC monsters!!! So good I played it in Japanese and am replaying it for the US release so I can play with ppl!!! There are hunters, and THEN there are MONSTER HUNTERS!!!! EPIC!!!!!!!!!!

Don't punch me below the belt

The Last Story - Nintendo Wii - 2011

Being one of the first RPG's I have ever played, I really recommend this title.  It has a solid story, likable characters, and a unique battle system.

Bucky O'Hare
One of the best games on the system. This is another one of those games on the NES that has character swapping on the fly which makes for a nice varied gameplay. This is a very fast paced run and gun game with loads of interesting screens and mechanics. The bosses are good, the stage variety is good and the platforming is good and it all comes with that great NES era Konami soundtrack as well. It offers legitimate challenge but the checkpoint system with unlimited continues will keep any skill level interested. Highly recommended!

 

Ufouria: The Saga
At first this game seems odd and you really have no idea what to do... Then you realize its one of the earliest Metroidvania styled games and bam the appreciation is through the roof. The four characters are cute and have lots of charm. They all join the party slowly and their individual abilities act as the tools or items needed to access previously unreachable parts of the map. The music is solid and the gameplay is spot on. If it weren't for the Bosses being so lacking and some of the ambiguity being over the top this game would be perfect. It really is the single best Metroidvania styled game on the system and a lot of fans of the genre might be surprised by how much there is to see in this game!

DK: King of Swing for the Game Boy Advance is a short and sweet 2D platformer with very unique gameplay. You move through the stage by swinging from pegs, it can be difficult at first, but once you get the swing of it you'll love it. I keep coming back to it every year for a quick play through. There's really nothing else like it.

I have always been interested in this game but never took the plunge. Someday.... I will... DK is the man and It's good to hear an EPIC gamer enjoys this game.

Yume Penguin Monogatari
A game that doesn't allow you to complete it unless you're in shape! No fatties can win here. You play as a penguin who is attempting to rescue his girlfriend penguin in a cutesy fun colorful world. The bad penguin who has her captive is tossing fattening foods at you along the way. As you platform through the game trying to avoid enemies you most importantly must avoid the food! You are encouraged to go after the diet drinks to drop some pounds mid-level. If you become too fat you become slower and you eventually die. If you do end up completing the game while fat and not skinny... well I can't reveal it all! A must play for the laughs!

Don Doko Don 2
Time to clobber some freaks with an over-sized mallet!!! Become a bearded dwarf and destroy idiots who are trying to stop the kingdom from being happy. It's a weird platformer where you can smash enemies to flatten them and then toss them aside. It also has interesting bosses and the main character is a dang old guy dwarf dude! If you like 2D Platformers this is worth a look. There is a lot to collect and a lot to explore in each of the stages but there are only 5 stages and there isn't a ton of challenge. So relax, sit back with that dogbone and let's smash some stuff.

Nekketsu Kakutou Densetsu

NKD is a beat 'em up game for the NES in which you play as either a Brawler, Martial Artist, Kung-fu fighter or Judo Master in 7 deadly stages with various hazards such as, spikes, ice, moving platforms, electric walls and more. There are 16( 18 if bosses are included) characters in total and each one has at its disposal various techniques. The player can also choose to creat his/her own character, describing date of birth, blood type and name and receive a character with stats and moves based on what was typed. The game can be played in Story Mode with maximum 2 players (either AI or human player) or in a Battle Royale mode for up to 4 players, again AI or human players. The game is a blast to play; it's very fast paced and every stage you play in has it's unique gems to crush your opponents with!

The Smurfs (NES)
This game! It really might not shock you in terms of gameplay but it definitely isn't bad in that regard. It's standard 2d platforming fun, but the game really blows me away because of the music! This never came out here in America or even the Famicom so the music was made for the slower 50hz EU markets. But boy does this thing jam out on a 60hz machine! Turn this thing on and jam out as you hop and bop your way to the end! A fun little endeavor worth having a nice little play session with.

Little Nemo: The Dream Master
What a cool game! It's got it all! Great music, art and gameplay! You play as Nemo who is asked to travel to Slumberland! The kid is equipped with candy that he can throw at certain enemies and then use their powers! This means added attacks or abilities. Very cool central mechanic to the game. The difficulty picks up towards the end so it has a very good sense of progression. If you feel up to trying this thing out you might just love it! You might ask yourself: "Am I Dreaming? Is This Game Really This Good?"

Azure Dreams (GBC)

While not nearly as in-depth as it's PS1 sibling, this game is still quite the rogue-like. It's dropped the town sim, and the romance angle, but it's still a very good Pokemon-esque rogue-like. Will leave you loving it enough to try it's superior Playstation twin.

 

Baulder's Gate: Dark Alliance (PS2, Xbox, GCN)

A wonderful little hack n slash set in the D&D universe. Every version of the game is excellent, though the PS2 and Xbox versions are still clearly superior to the Gamecube one. With super good combat, pretty damn good visuals, and a pretty decent leveling system, this game is, at once, very representitive of the D&D property, as well as a great entry in the Hack n Slash genre. Topped off by amazing music by Jeremy Soule, who you no doubt know from his work with The Elder Scrolls and Putt Putt.

 

Baulder's Gate: Dark Alliance 2 (PS2, Xbox)

An overall improvement to the first game, which in itself was already very good. Same great visuals, same great music, same great combat. But now the story is a lot more in-depth, and is overall better than before. To add to that, weapon upgrading became a thing, and while expensive to get really amazing weapons from it, it can make even slightly less-than-good weapons completely viable later in the game.

Mega Man 2

A classic and a must-have Capcom title for any NES collectors. It is essentially an updated version of the original Mega Man, but this time with juiced up music, graphics, and characters. Instead of the boring old boss clear from the first game, you can now gain power abilities from each Robot Master that you defeat! These powers can then be used on other bosses and enemies in the game to advance forward with ease. If you've never given this game a play, you're missing out!

Chip's Challenge (Many many computer OSes)

This lovely little puzzle game starts out innocent enough. But soon you'll find yourself facing frustrating, though endearing, puzzles that may make you pull your hair out. There are a ton of levels, that range from simple to devious, and I believe they're consistent across all platforms. It and it's sequel are currently on Steam, so I would check it out.

 

Jet Set Radio Future (Xbox)

Pure attitude. This stylish urban fantasy game has you join a gang of graffiti-spraying street thugs to push out rival gangs, and the police, out of the Tokyo area. Everything about this game oozes style, especially it's wonderfully done cel-shaded graphics, and it's hip soundtrack partially composed by legend Hideki Naganuma. As well as some licensed tracks in there from great artists like BOS, Guitar Vader and Count Latchula, it makes for a damn fine background noise to your daily "grind". Not to mention, the story is pretty great, and even the multiplayer is hours of fun.

Dragon Quest IX for the PS4

This is my first game of the Dragon Quest series.   The story isn't boring or repetitive and I always felt compelled to go through with it.  I loved all the main characters in the game and felt they all had purpose and individuality.  Game play was well designed, the only complaint I've had was that the enemies were always too easy.  Very appealing art style and soundtrack.  I'm looking forward to playing more from this series.

Until Dawn PS4:

 

If you like horror movies you will really enjoy playing this cinematic game.  You get to choose who lives and dies throughout the whole game making it worth more than one play through.  A creepy setting, a cabin, and a group of teenagers are the perfect ingredients for a horrific time.

Guitar Hero: World Tour (Wii, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3)

While nowhere nearly as popular as it's older siblings Guitar Hero 2 and 3, this iteration is still an excellent inclusion to the series. The first to adopt the Rock Band model of having multiple instruments, this is as much of a party game, more so even, as the other titles. The music selection can be a bit dumb sometimes (La Bamba and Eye of the Tiger comes to mind), but otherwise has an excellent setlist to rock the absolute fuck out to. (Hot for Teacher, Vicarious, Mr. Crowley) With the ability to customize even your instruments now, this is quite the jam!

 

Diablo 2 (PC)

 

The sequel to the dated but still very good Diablo, Diablo 2 kicks it up several notches. More streamlined quests make the story easier to follow, and rewards more consistent. each area is very large now, so whereas the first game's length was mostly to difficulty, this one's length has more to do with content. And the loot is overall improved too. Now you have amazing things like Set items (items that gain bonuses the more of a set you wear) , items that heavily improve specific classes, items with slots in them to put various trinkets into like gems and runes. All kinds of goodies here. And let's not forget the classes. The original had 3 basic archetypes that more or less could tread on the tactical space of the other classes with ease. In this game, there's 7 classes (with DLC). Your Barbarian fights. Your Sorcerer casts spells. Your Paladin gives area buffs. Necromancer likes to make new friends. And they all feel very distinct without bleeding into other classes, due to the new tech tree system. Overall, an excellent game you'll spend hours (days? YEARS?) on.

 

Divekick (PC, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PS Vita)

 

Who ever has looked at a fighting game and thought "this is far too complex for me. i wish there was something much simpler." Well, friend, Divekick is for you. Everything in Divekick is done through two buttons, a gimmick that feels like it would get old fast if it wasn't so well designed. The game basically boils down to spacing and angles. It couldn't get too much simpler. The whole game is a deconstruction and satire of fighting game culture, so expect to see a healthy spattering of memes and references throughout. Don't let that deter you though, the game still has plenty of depth to go around. Not to mention it's simple but charming artwork, and very good ost, and I think you'll be falling in love in no time.

Dead Rising (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, PC)

Goofy meets serious in this obvious homage to Dawn of the Dead. As reporter Frank West, it is your job to helicopter yourself into the violent territory of Willamette and find out what's going on. The tone of this game is a constant whiplash, moving from ridiculous weapons, moves, and characters, to serious plot elements and story. But don't be fooled, it blends together very well. While you could just mow down zombies to your heart's content, using a variety of items from full out guns to potted plants, skateboards, and nerf launchers, there are other goals for you to accomplish. Being a reporter, it is your duty to get to the bottom of what is going on, and spread it to the world, and these clues are linked to time-sensitive missions that must be completed before a certain time. Everything in this game is time sensitive, really, and it may be hard for you to rescue everyone and still complete the main questline. I personally find that part of the fun, as finding good routes and getting better weaponry largely reduce the amount of lost quests. Overall, an extremely solid game that's both fun to finish the story of, and just mess around in.

 

Sunset Riders (SNES, Genesis, Arcade)

 

Play in one of four characters in this wild-west inspired shoot-em-up. An overall solid Arcade experience, this game is actually a bit different on each edition, though I'd frankly recommend them all. Equipped with your pistol (or shotgun), you are out to take down the local bad guys, but it's easier said than done. Some of these levels aren't the hardest. but some bosses can lay down the hurt. Thankfully you have a few solid moves at your disposal, like the ever handy slide, or the ability to jump straight up to the next floor of a building. Overall solid title. Great for Co-Op.

BurgerTime Deluxe (Gameboy)

 

A classic remade for the earliest handheld. The same basic structure of the original is here, but is overall generally improved. A unique Puzzle-ish Platformer-ish game that has to you walking over burger platforms to form burgers. Sandwiching enemies (pun intended) between burger bits awards extra points. It sounds simple, but the layouts in this game can get rather devious. Overall a solid little time waster.

 

OFF (PC)

 

Earthbound meets Silent Hill. And no, that isn't a joke, that's literally what it's built to be. This incredibly quirky and slightly unsettling French RPG might be short (about 4-5 hours), but is packed full of charm in every little corner. It's battle system is rather plain, so don't expect too much depth from it, but everything else about the game is easy to fall in love with, especially it's characters. And not to mention it's soundtrack, which is honestly one of my favorite in the whole genre. And overall wonderful little experience worth trying out, especially since it's free!

 

Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures (SNES, Genesis)

This quirky little spin-off has you ushering Pac-Man around the world to meet his goals. That sounds easy, but it's not always so simple. Since you have no direct control over Pac-Man, you need to use your trusty slingshot to interact with the environment to get Pac-Man where he needs to go. Sometimes frustrating, but mostly rewarding as you try to balance Pac-Man's mood with how he would react to any given situation. Sometimes it's better to keep him happy, sometimes it's better to make him mad or sad. It all depends on what is going on. A fun game overall with some flaws that are easily overlooked for it's charming approach to this icon of a character.
