I think DQ7 is underrated and have probably spent 200 hours playing it outside of when I was actually working on it, but I can't really be angry about that outcome. I really hope not necessarily having to pay for a cartridge run gets the remake localized.

Star Ocean and Dance Dance Revolution. The former for its reputation more than anything else, the latter for DUB-I-DUB

Additions were novel at the time and the whole thing is so incredibly cliche and unoriginal that there may almost have been comfortable slipping into something safe, familiar, and executed reasonably well.

I would abstain but here I am getting my opinions all over the place. People like Colony Wars I guess??? Okay have a vote! People hate Saga Frontier to the point of it being some weird underdog???? You get a vote!!

Going against my rule of not voting for games that I think of primarily as being for another system because the Puzzle Fighter 2 and L:SSSC are so much better.

Musashi has some unfortunately really poopy bits that mar what's an otherwise fantastic journey.

I played Musashi when it was new, and have replayed it exactly once since.

Why?

Steamwood is why.
