Well it looks better than one of mine. But my 001 plays okay.

Did you have to replace anything to get this working again or something?

Holy fudge man I'm really sorry to hear that 😞 That's been one of my biggest fears for years. I hope they gave you something to help with the pain and or itching. That's a nightmare man. How old were you when you first got chicken pox I think my brother and sister and I were still pretty early in grade school and if one in three gets it I'm pretty sure it'll be me. I probably deserve it the most anyways for all the drama I've caused in my life. Also I'm the oldest but I'm not sure who got it first. Probably my sister.

I hope you can get some relief man. How long did the doctor say it would take to run its course or whatever happens before it passes? Make sure to take it easy sir 😞

I have no idea what the budget constraints were on Y's but I HOPE they spend the right amount of money on Dragon Quest for sure.

I remember back when teams would have to split on the same game on snes and Genesis and usually each system would end up with very different games actually. I'm thinking mostly of fighting games like the two very different versions of Mortal Kombat 1 and 2 between just the Genesis and Snes versions. I believe that the Jurassic park games were also completely different on every single system they came out on.

So were these Y's games really old rehashes or something or is there some other reason the budgets weren't there? If you wanted to venture a guess I meant that is.

Glad to hear it, with this many choices we should all be voting since every can find something they like out of this list of titles hopefully.

I still don't get how or when we vote again if at all, idk I voted my choices I'm good 😉

I really wouldn't know that I was hoping to get into something other people liked for once. I know it's a classic series and it doesn't seem as obnoxiously not my style as Final Fantasy and ugh Metal Gear seem to me.

Maybe you guys feel the same way I feel about Mario Kart 64s graphics. I could not get over how many times worse it seems to me than Diddy Kong Racing. Just talking graphics and art design but I also much preferred the track layouts too so I guess the only thing better for me is getting to play as Toadstool and Princess Peach who I effing adore! 😉

I don't remember the last time I paid retail for a brand new release ..... but I'm guessing it was when GameStop ruined my Mortal Kombat X preorder experience so I can't say retail exactly applies to me here. On some level I get what you guys are saying but it would almost be easier to scrap one version or the other than give yourself hideous reviews for releasing something people were bound to be upset by.

Well if I'm understanding what everyone is saying, they were basically just porting it up from vita software.

Wouldn't it be easier to put out a quality product by not porting from two different systems with seriously different graphical capabilitites and instead just have two different teams working on implementing the artists visions into the two different operating systems at the same time? And are we even talking about the LRG Y's game I wanted to get still?

Y'all are making me wanna start collecting Harvest Moon again instead, at least I know I will love most of those plus even if I don't love every title I still just need them for the collection ultimately and getting to play them is a bonus 😊

Lol @DiamondDave you know as soon as I mentioned PS3 I did immediately think of Far Cry and then I was like eh I don't care let's see what happens anyways. I will just leave PS3 up. I personally love vita and Psp they have been my favorite Sony systems for awhile now even though I rarely play anything not on my phone. Also I've never actually played this version of Ys or the one it was ported from but I would still like to. I liked that pic I think it looks good. Mind you I'm on an iPhone with a battery tearing my screen off (why must everything expensive always break on me when I have no money to fix it?!?) but for the most part that still pic looked great. I played the walking dead survival instinct on 360 and loved it no matter how many nerds who supposedly worked at GameStop were trolling us on the Gamefaqs Walking Dead and telling us how terrible it was. I can see the fun and the good in almost anything maybe not Miley Cyrus but you can't win everything 😉

For me I don't need these fancy 100 inch monitors just to my play my retro games or even watch my Blu Rays maybe it's my social anxiety or something but I don't like to bother people with my games. I'm just fine playing an imperfect game with not perfect resolution on screen. Although my little screen for retro stuff actually looks like it's supposed to. And the bigger tv I use for blu Rays and sometimes 360 is fine too.

Don't get me wrong there are a few games where to me graphics were and still are super important. Like I LOVED Morrowind on og Xbox that game was just great to me. Or rayman back on Jaguar and PsOne. I had that game on both systems at different points.

But I still haven't seen vids of this game in motion and considering all this backlash I'll probably just buy it from @ErickRPG and play it on the vita tv and try to see it with fresh eyes and try to like what's there. There is always some good about some game if you try to see it. I can always find a reason (well almost anyways) to enjoy any game.

Like, to each their own for sure, but I still want to at least try to find the positives in anything. Now like @Gypsy said IF it looks terrible in motion compared to other games then I will find some other reason to enjoy it. Okay ramble over just had to say it from my perspective so you guys realize I'm not just saying things maliciously 😊

I kind of get it though @DefaultGen Myst is such a popular series and non gamers actually got into gaming because of it.

It's like if they told me they were going to release some Mortal Kombat box set on (fill in name of random system here) I would be on board yesterday. Even after GameStop bent me over on a deceptive $100.00 Mortal Kombat preorder saying it came with "some stuff".

I was supposed to get a poster which wasn't in stock the day it came out. I was supposed to get limited edition key art (whatever the fudge that actually means) which when pressed the GameStop employee told me I ALREADY got my key art. I looked in my case and my little GameStop bag. "Where" I asked feeling stupid because I somehow lost it already. "Right there" ..... ???
"Uhhh where?" You see the cover art? It's different! Different? Yeah that's the limited edition cover art.

"Ummm ..... seriously?!?"

So I paid 10 dollars more for nothing extra ..... except I did get to have the Kombat Pass for 40 dollars instead of 30 dollars like it was on the Xbox live store.

And yet I love that series and characters so much I would still buy a repackaging of games I mostly have spread across 20 systems lol. But I wouldn't buy it at GameStop again.

That being said, did you play it? If so, how did you enjoy it, like was the gameplay system fun? I'm probably still going to get it since I have yet to play any Y's games period and everyone has been talking about this one that just came out.

Don't get me wrong I like good graphics usually but art design is always more important than if it's pixel perfect true to life images.

You guys are nuts that y's pic looks fine to me. What the hell kinda poseur ass retro gamers are y'all anyhow?!?

Ps2 and most PS3 games have NEVER looked that good. It's not supposed to be perfectly realistic its art. You wanna see a better stream and rock wall go to a national park and your permit money will help conserve the environment for after that dumbass Orange Clown gets the boot outta Washington.

Y'all is spoiled. Do you not realize how much programming making nice looking games takes? Yes they are trying to cash in BUT that's okay since this funds their future better looking products. All that matters (and no I haven't played the game yet I was actually thinking about buying it from @ErickRPG next month) is that it's fun and plays fine, so I hope you're wrong @Gypsy that it doesn't function at all. It's the first Ys game I might ever play so it doesn't have to be too perfect just fun.

I will nominate

The Adventures of Lolo (Nes)

Mostly because it's the last day to nominate and I haven't researched all the available games on snes classic and Nes classic to make sure what other games would be good candidates. I'm also still not sure if we're allowed to nominate og Xbox and ps2 games yet. But I've thought about those and Genesis and Dreamcast as well.

If you wanted to buy them before I do I won't be mad at you, they're mostly just because I keep buying cart only games to share with my nephews 😍

I'll literally buy two copies as you know 😉 Of the same game hoping we can play them and talk about them and bond over them 😊 My sister and brother in law as well as my brother don't play video games much anymore and I'm the only one who would be willing to share that stuff with them. Anyways I buy psp cases and ds/gameboyadvance/3ds cases almost everytime I can here so if you want them I don't really need them 😊 But I will if you don't 😉

Thank you good sir! Yeah the arm pain may be due to a pinched nerve in my neck or something. All the weird pains and symptoms I looked up seemed to point to a "stinger" which it might still not be exactly but I won't know until I go.

You gotta keep up with your back too sir. I had terrible back pains when I was working in lots of different types of manual labor jobs. I will tweak it every once in awhile on my lower right side. It was way worse than my arm. At least I can learn to do stuff left handed for now but if your back seizes up it can paralyze you in one place. So keep up with it 😊 Even when you feel fine it can just take a little tweak the wrong way.

Oh I know I wanted to give my D.C. Away during the steals thread and it was around the time it was super hot. Plus AT LEAST 20 bucks to ship maybe more since I had the box and cardboard system holder inside the box lol.

No I charge him whatever I pay but I just want you to know that it's for my friend and you do way too much nice stuff already. Yeah I would pm you but then I'll forgot what I have. And I will still add stuff I don't wanna trade since it is in collection. But anything you want just ask and it's most likely yours 😊 I'll need at least a week though I'll let you know for sure and won't trade anything until you've checked most of it out 😉

And no worries it's just all the social anxiety (feeling sick to my stomach a lot) and the messed up arm. Once I see a doctor the arm will probably be fine again it's just painful and not as much range of motion. But I'm going to be home for most of the month (no more train rides thank goodness) so my stomach is getting better for now.

They don't need to be discounts I probably can't afford systems right now but I will definitely try to buy the perfect shot and the gba cases from you at the beginning of May.

I just can't overextend myself and your stuff is too good 😊 It's already great prices. But I will "see" whatmy friend is thinking but we have monthly payments here every month good sir it's a lot of money so I can't promise anything unless he or I started selling some of our stuff.

It really is for my friend, he can be a little selfish so if I get an amazing and low priced inflection from you he's going to expect that all the time lol. Plus he'd most likely be paying cash or I'd send some of my growing horde of unplayed titles your way 😉

It depends on if we could make a mutually beneficial trade or sale (preferably sale since my friend wants it) but I'm going to start trying to go through all this stuff and list it in my collection so you guys can ask about stuff you might need. With the physical problems I've been having I want to try to do more at home so I don't feel like such a bum.

I have been slowly building up games for systems but if I list them in my available I'll just get offers I don't want all the time. Are there any systems you want me to start listing first @Gypsy ?!?

I wanted those gba cart holders before when you posted them too.

Edit: maybe interested in the Nyko perfect shot for Wii too. How well does it control? Is there a link? Would it work on House of the Dead or is it something else?

I just don't have extra cash and I've got payments. Maybe I will peruse your goods again at the beginning of May when I might still have some money. I know I've been tempted by every system you have for offer they all look perfect! I know my friend has been asking about a dreamcast and even if I couldn't afford your SegaCD bundle I'm still very tempted by that Willy Beamish, that game has fun memories for me ❤️

And the Saturn and the OG Xbox ..... all your stuff is cool.

I won't ..... 😍

I like when drunk people buy stuff while they're internetting 😉

I don't like it however when I'm tipsy and start E-flirting with exes and ex "friends" and homegirls it's tha worst kind of shame spiral that I occasionally find myself in.

But making impulsive drunk purchases is so much safer ..... except when I'm broke for two months after 😆
