Kill Your Babies!: Toss Out Both the NES and SNES!



  • With arguably the two most nostalgic consoles of all time, let's see if we can wade through the rose-tinted glasses to find the entry will define most of our childhoods! Time to kill off the NES and SNES!

    SO: As always, just in case there are new players, here are the rules:

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense)

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only four (New rule!) other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed from the last overall kill (not necessarily your own). This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: Per normal, we will have a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Your kills are your own, so be ruthless, uncompromising, and most importantly:

    HAVE FUN!!!

    While arcady fun, it's still a sports game, I remember it getting rather repetitive also.

    I feel like I've basically become Kyle's hitman at this point.

    Tried it for the first time a few years back, I felt like I was forcing myself through the dungeons. It set off a long line of linear Zeldas and is bolstered by nostalgia. Bye-bye!

    This game made me hate birds with firing passion of 10000 foreman grills.

    /Disney nostalgia glasses off. I thought the game was OK when it came out, but it really isn't that good.

    Not that great compared to the many games that came after it (GC and 3DS in particular).

    I played this for the first time early last year, expecting "the best RPG ever made" as many fans claim and I got a decent game with a great soundtrack and one standout character, Frog. Conceptually, I love the idea and there's a few great moments where they show the consequences of your actions (the trial, for instance). For a game about time though, these moments are few and far between. I felt like most battles didn't take much thought and the plot leans heavily on tropes.



  • @SabotageTheTruth

    I like Chrono Trigger, but I agree its not the best game ever, hell I like Chrono Cross a lot more because it deals with tougher themes and consequences of time travel Trigger was more generic, Cross was dealing with the consequences of Trigger.

    I'll freely admit I've never played this game and have no interest in doing it. Frankly this is more of a spite-kill for Earthbound (which someone else already got rid of), which I genuinely believe is the most overrated game ever. It's not as if I've heard this one is any better than that anyway.

    I usually refrain from shooting down games I haven't played, but I have too many horses in this race to champion. Plus, RPGs generally fare very well in these contests, so call it a vote for diversity.

    Whoops, overlooked that there is a SRPG, so not my genre.
