Say Something Nice
« on: April 28, 2008, 11:15:07 AM »

I've been tempted to make a thread like this for a long time, but I finally broke down when Kazz said:

Stop hating everything, everyone.

I'm the kind of person who tends to find something good to say about most situations/movies/games/etc. This is a thread for people to say nice things about games that otherwise, well, kinda sucked.

Rule #1: No sarcastic compliments ("it didn't suck as much as it could have", "made a good coaster")
More rules will be added if necessary.

I'll start off with a couple of brief ones, but feel free to go into more detail. I had some more ideas that aren't coming to me right now, so I'll post more later.

Suikoden IV
Good soundtrack. I thought the Rune of Punishment was a pretty neat idea, especially how it could move from the Punishment phase to the Atonement phase.

Shadow Madness
Well-written dialogue. The in-game world's backstory was surprisingly fleshed-out, if you bothered to read all the optional stuff in the game.

Grandia III
The first seven hours are really pretty good. Miranda and Alonso were both pretty interesting characters, and those scenes right before they left the party were pretty cool. Assigning Magic Spells and Skills was fun, and more jRPGs should work like that. Flying the biplane is fun, especially when you get to talk to that giant sky whale. It is a very pretty game and I like the character designs.

Chrono Cross
Good graphical design, and superlative soundtrack.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Does it have to be about a game?

Lewis Black's Root of All Evil
A neat show format that pits comedians against each other, breeding insult comedy with one-upsmanship. Also, love that ripple of evil.

Kenny Vs Spenny
The intro has that cool WWIII style art.

Wild Arms 3
God what a cool soundtrack.

Megaman Anniversary Collection
I beat Yellow Devil legitimately. That's more bragging I guess. Kudos to Capcom for keeping the menu trick in this stellar rerelease!

This is a thread for people to say nice things about games stuff that otherwise, well, kinda sucked.

Metal Gear Solid 2
A perfectly solid (ha!) entry, character switch and all, until the last hour of gameplay and plot fuckery.

Batman Returns
Best batsuit on film to date. The Businessman, Vigilante, and Orphan alter-ego dualities was choice. Catwoman was handled better than the vast majority of characters in comic book films, Catwoman naturally included.

Star Ocean 3


Rogue Galaxy
Jupis was cool. Good music, especially in that factory mini-game. The bonus planet added to the U.S. version was really awesome and fun to play in. Save Points heal your party and can be used for teleportation.

Space MacGyver
Stargate SG-1/Atlantis

Well at least it sometimes knows how much of a joke it is. David Hewlett is also a genuinely enjoyable actor.

Master of Orion III
It was certainly pretty realistic!

The Bush Administration really helped make The Daily Show what it is today.

Wreckless
You get to drive the Back to the Future car.

King Kong
One of the best movie-based games out there. Great monster designs, especially Kong. Plus, alternate happy ending!

LotR: The Third Age
Another surprisingly decent movie-based game, featuring co-op multiplayer, a rarity for RPGs.

Yes, I am going to have to put my non-admin foot down and use my greatest powers of politeness to enforce Rule #2: Non-game media is perfectly fine... but let's keep it at that.

By the way, DN, I totally agree with everything you said about Grandia III, and Rogue Galaxy was going to be the next game I brought up. Keep up the good comments.
