If you were stuck on an island...
« on: June 12, 2012, 03:26:50 pm »
If you were stuck on an island (an island with electricity and power outlets of course... :), and you only had the choice of ONE (1) retro-Videogame system, and only FIVE (5) games for it, which system and 5 games would it be...?

Wow. You like those 4 games so much that you feel no need for a 5th?

I am thinking GBA with Golden sun 1 and 2, The Legend of Zelda (port of NES original), Zelda Lttp and possibly Shining Soul II.
I had to cut so much out of my list to get 5.

PSX is clearly the weapon of choice for me...

I would have the following:

Streetfighter 2: The collection (best ever streetfighter collection I have seen across any system)
Worms Armageddon (love the challenge mode)
Driver (one of my all time favs for PSX)
Gran Turismo 2 (greatest Driving sim EVER)
Metal Gear Solid (its like having a movie too watch too)
Dingoo x2, GCW0, RS-97 x2, Revo-K101, RS-90, PSP, PSP Go, GameGadget, New 3DS 128GB, PS Vita 200GB RS-45, Gamebox Advance and a few other obscure devices

Does "retro-videogame system" Cover Amiga games?

Yes sir, basically anything no longer sold on retail store shelves qualifies as "retro".
At least in my book it does.
For some people a decade old makes the grade, for others, longer, but i like to keep it simple, plus it makes sense.
"old hat" = "retro". :D

SNES - FF III , IV , V, VI, CT   8)

Wait a tic, FF III? That wasn't on SNES... unless you mean the English version of FF 6, but you already have FF 4-6 in your list, seems a bit redundant...

I'd probably also go with SNES and a selection of RPGs, but if I'm stuck on the same island as you and Turkish and you guys will let me visit your huts (or we could meet at the bar  8)) and let me play your games, I'd bring my Game Boy Color with Final Fantasy Legend 2, Beatmania GB GatchaMix2, and Pop'n Music GB Animation Melody. Then I'd have Secret of Mana and Super Bomberman 2 (with Super Multitap, of course) for when I visit my SNES-owning neighbors  :P
My machines:
GBC,GBA,GBA SP,NDS,NGPC,Panasonic FZ-10 3DO,NES,Sega Nomad,Sega CDX w/Power Base Converter,PS1,PS2,PS3,Saturn,Dreamcast,PC (Win 98, XP, 7),Dingoo A320,Dingoo A330,Gemei A330,LetCool N350JP,PAP-GAMETA,GCW-Zero SE,Kyocera Rise,2DS,GP2X-F100,GPD G7,JXD 100,JXD A1000,JXD A3300,JXD F3000,JXD V5000,JXD S7300B,Hyperkin SupaBoy
