burchness asked: Hi! I always see you talk about a lot of old games that you really like and replay and was wondering if you could give a suggestion of games to play. It's just you tend to talk about a bunch of them and its hard to follow without any context to what series you're talking about so I thought I'd just ask you which ones you like the best. I wasn't sure if I should send you this via this blog or your personal one but this ask box was easier to find... but if I'm bothering you I'm sorry!

I’m not even sure where to start. I’m almost 30 and I’ve been playing games since I was able to hold a controller and push the buttons. It’s part of the background noise of my life and I often make context free public posts containing my thoughts about games to amuse myself. For this I am sorry.

But to me, there are absolute essentials. To define “essential” I note that I am constantly loaning, gifting and getting rid of possessions including movies and games I like simply because I feel burdened by their presence, or need a few dollars for gas or lunch; the essentials are games I still cannot part with. These are:

Chrono Trigger

Earthbound

Suikoden 1 & 2

Final Fantasy VI

Final Fantasy XII

Final Fantasy Tactics

Vagrant Story

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne

Disgaea 4

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together

I mean, y’know, I’ve loved every FF I’ve ever tried, but I only have so much space for these things. Final Fantasy X, for instance, is exquisite, but I played it SO MUCH and for SO MANY HOURS that I finally satisfied myself that I had done everything I was ever going to do in it and that I didn’t want to do any of it ever again and sold it. FFVII is one of the most important games in my life in that its world and its characters are important to the person I’ve become, but let’s be real, it’s ugly as shit now and that’s a barrier to my actually, like, playing it again.

I frequently find that I feel like I’ve given too much of myself after making posts, so I tend to err on the side of speaking my mind in detail less rather than more overall, but I do not at all mind being asked about things I like as long as it’s not some juvenile “WHY would you LIKE this GARBAGE” kind of inquiry. So if you need to know more about these games and why I like them for whatever reason, please feel free to ask.

quietasthieves replied to your post: i just got a book that gives sherri +2…

Amazing piece of an amazing lady. Absolutely the best Sherri art I’ve seen, if I’m being honest. I really need to pop TO into my PS1 again, and maybe actually finish it this time. It’s pretty shameful I have not beaten it, given my love for FFT.

THANK and also SERIOUSLY IF YOU LIKE FFT AT ALL… you guys should really give Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together a try!! I can’t vouch for the PSX version cause I haven’t played it, but the PSP version is just… I can’t believe a game this good has flown so far under the radar. IT’S SO GOOD. Even totally ignoring the story and world (YASUMI MATSUNO!!), it’s got great music, GREAT character art, UNREAL GAMEPLAY… The only game I’ve ever played as deep as LUCT is Disgaea 4, which has so much content I don’t think I’ll ever get around to playing with most of it. This shit cost me TEN DOLLARS new and I’ve played it for 120 HOURS ALREADY and I’m STILL NOT DONE. what the fuck. play it
