Kill Your Babies!: Kill the Game Boy's "Greatest"



  • Kirby's Nightmare in Dreamland
    Metroid Fusion
    Shantae
    Wario Land 4
    Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
    Advance Wars
    Castlevania Aria of Sorrow

    Mega Man Battle Network
    Golden Sun: The Lost Age
    DuckTales
    Mother 3
    Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure
    Konami Krazy Racers

    Weaker than the first two Mother games. It strains itself for emotional response and I can't help but see its desperation as a turn-off. Its spin away from child-centered storytelling towards ensemble melodrama and technology-focused moral tale (neither of which it presents in a thoughtful way) puts the entire game at odds with itself.



  • @Ringedwithtile Brutal. I enjoy the workmanlike manner and the confidence with which you just eviscerated Mother 3.

    I'm not liking two of the same series on the list. Got to make this fair. Also, never able to beat it. I can never decide if I like how the sprites look.

    Killing this game because it has an awful name. Crazy is spelled with a C, Konami. Maybe your company name has actually been Conami this entire time and you just suck at spelling?

    Sorry, it's not Mega Man, even Mega Man Legends is more Mega Man than this.

    The first game was better dammit!



  • @parasitepaladin The 12 hour rule is a little different than you interpreted it, but because I was not clear enough (apparently), the rule as it stands will stay, but what is intended is 12 hours from the LAST overall kill NOT YOUR last kill. But I will make the adjustments from the next game forward.

    Could someone exploit the international date line to make 2 consecutive posts, thus granting themself nearly god like power?

    Just asking for a friend.



  • @Brannox Oh sorry! My bad. Go ahead and add it back on the list.



  • @TokyoSlim (......................................I think I may have to strike you down. You killing ways and questions are dangerous :laughing:) In all seriousness, no. It goes by the indicator next to the name. If it says 12 hours, knock yourself out.

    @parasitepaladin No, because I wasn't clear, so technically your kill is still valid. So it remains perma-dead.

    No thanks.

    I'm sorry Duck Tales. but you're an NES port and the NES version was better.

    If it's any consolation though, you have one of the better Japanese titles on this list. "Naughty Ducks Dream Adventures"



  • Kirby's Nightmare in Dreamland
    Metroid Fusion
    Wario Land 4
    Castlevania Aria of Sorrow
    Final Fantasy 6 Advanced

    This is a list of great games. This one is clearly the odd man out.



  • Kirby's Nightmare in Dreamland

    Only one left that I've never played, so bye.



  • 12 hours have passed.

    Kirby's Nightmare in Dreamland
    Metroid Fusion
    Castlevania Aria of Sorrow

    Only because it's just a remake of an NES game.



  • Sophie's choice.. either one I pick; I'm a criminal.

    Metroid Fusion
    Castlevania Aria of Sorrow
    Final Fantasy 6 Advanced

    Metroid is a console game for me.
    I'm so sorry..
    hate the game; not the player :s

  • I voted for Castlevania: Aria of Shadows which must be a new upcoming game :D
    You mispelled the game title.
