Prefers single player games, but loves couch co-op.
I am huge of games like Devil May Cry or Bayonetta. Arcade racers are my thing, and I have a huge respect for the old school.

RE: Videogame Hot takes
The Sega Genesis Mini, Turbo Grafx Mini, and Neo Geo Mini are a 1000x's better than the NES & SNES mini. While the former three have their various duds in the compilations, at least you get more than enough variety of games. The NES & SNES you only get 20 games respectively, and the console compilation is way more expensive due to Nintendo stopping production and scalpers. Even at their original price points, they were way too expensive.
Bayonetta 2 is a much better game than Bayonetta. The sequel gets rid of the bad QTEs, a more pleasing color palette that is not washed out, and better pacing. The story is simple and not as convoluted as the first game. The game has even better bonuses that easier to unlock and are not tedious nor obtuse unlike Bayo1.
Asura's Wrath is a better God of War Game than all the God of War games. While God of War 4 can be described as American Asura's Wrath.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales > than Spider-Man (PS4)
Double Dragon Neon is great game, but it's not the best DD game. That title goes to Double Dragon Advance on the GBA. I feel that DDN has gotten over praised over the years and especially when it first launched. The game can and will force you to grind on harder difficulty to max out your stats and special moves. It gets old and repetitive having to switch between menus constantly for abilities. I found two sets of power ups that works best when maxed out, making almost all of the other abilities and skills useless.
Eve is a better villain than Sephiroth. Yeah, I said it.
Burnout Paradise is not as good as 3 or Revenge, but shits on most of the racing games that came out on 8th gen.
The last good Need for Speed game was Hot Pursuit (2010). The last decent NFS game was Rivals (the PC port is horrible. Do not play.) I have not played NFS Heat yet.
Shadows of the Damned is better than Lollipop Chainsaw. I do like Juliet as a character, but that is game couldn't have been made anywhere except in 2012.
Ayane is one of the most unsympathetic characters in a fighting game series, and I have almost no sympathy for the bytch. They kinda try to fix this with DOA5 & 6, but it should not have taken that long to end that stupid grudge plotline. I don't understand how Kasumi has so much patience for that brat. I'd sooner cry for Juri Han than Ayane. Poison is a better person than Ayane.
While games based off of anime are in better state now than most were back in early 3D days, there are still issues. Alot of them just adapt the shounen genre and not much else. They've mostly turn in to bog standards arena fighters. I may not like Naruto, but at least Cyber Connect 2 tries something unique with the anime games they make. Even if their design template is a more advanced version of what they did for Asura's Wrath. I do look forward to their Demon Slayer game. I still have not watched it yet.
But where's my Cowboy Bebop game, and not just the ones from the PS1/Ps2 days? Where is a new Ghost in the Shell? Alita? Ninja Scroll? An open world Black Lagoon game? I would take a Panty and Stocking game just for variety sake.
The best anime games from last gen are Dragonball FighterZ (which is their version of Marvel vs. Capcom) and Kill La Kill IF. IF may be an 3D arena fighter, but it's got more in depth gameplay and fighting mechanics than the standard usual fair. Its main flaw being the lack of much bonus content and a lack of a large roster. The game could have used a couple more characters. At least IF bothered to bring back all of the English dub voice actors from the anime. Something a lot of arenas fighters don't bother doing just to save some extra money.
RE: Rip-off Games
@e_zed_eh_intern The original SOR is better than the SNES version of Final Fight and most of its other lousy home computer ports. But that was already an arcade game, so that's a no contest. Streets of Rage was made for consoles in mind. the only advantage the first game has over the original final fight, is that you can do back attacks. Otherwise Adam, Axel, and Blaze mostly played the same only with some slight variations with their grapples. They're strength and speed differed to, but that was about it.
I wish Capcom would do a force final fight game. A proper and true sequel and not that crappy StreetWise. with all the good endings final fight characters have been getting in Street fighter, who knows. Cody is out of jail and finally mayor of the city. I'm truly happy for him.
RE: Double dipping on videogames
@dmcmaster I've only bought RE4 a total of 3 times. I only paid full price once. The original Gamecube copy. The Wii and PS4 version I bought used. I have to remind myself to get the the Switch versions of NMH. I still have m y Wii copies.
RE: Double dipping on videogames
I quintuple-dipped for Streets of Rage 4. I bought digital copies for Nintendo switch and ps4. I have two PS4 physical copies and one switch copy. Two of them from the limited run games. And the third copy which is also from limited runs, I bought for my older brother. I also double dipped on Ninja Saviors.
RE: Rip-off Games
@bam541 The closest thing to a Vanquish clone is Remedy's Quantum Break. It plays like a discount Vanquish in certain, Ironic, because Vanquish itself is a Japanese take on the Gears of War formula, but done better and more insane. Even more ironic, because Wanted: Weapons of Fate plays like a prototype Vanquish in a weird form.
The Ninja Turtle clones: Batteltoads, Ninja Kids, and Ninja Baseball Batman. The third game I mentioned is actually better than both Ninja Turtles Arcade Brawlers from the 90s.
You ever noticed how everyone started copying Bayonetta's dodge mechanic around 2013? With DmC (2013) being of the first with its Demon Evade.
