They’re keeping the weightlifting mini-game so 100 squats, 100 push-up, and 100 sit-ups are easier than you think!
In 1998, major gaming magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly named it the greatest game ever, and I definitely agreed at the time, but that certainly has colored my opinion. Since then I’ve waited for a game to blow me away as much that did, and it hasn’t yet. Here are some that have come close, though:
Before the SNES came out, I remember just fixating on the previews in gaming mags. I would stand, completely immobile, poring over every pixel of the screens from Super Mario World. I couldn’t believe the level of detail and range of colors. It was as close to sublime as my adolescent self had ever felt.
Was surprised by how much I enjoyed playing Demon’s Crest. Takes the best parts of Ghouls and Ghosts and lets you actually experience them. Was also surprised by Joe and Mac. It’s by no means a great platformer, but it’s clear they put some effort into actually making the movement feel right, which can’t really be…
God...in the late 80's early 90's ALL the boom boxes had “Turbo Bass”
Not a Canyonero?
I honestly think you’re nail on the head with this one. Great point. I personally grew up enjoying all sorts of music from the past including a lot of classical stuff so I always enjoyed dragon quest music. After a music appreciation class in college that love only increased.
