Skate or Die 2 is the better game because you murder the mayor's wife in the first level.

If you think anything on the Genesis can stand alongside the best of the SNES' library you've been deluding yourself for decades. I mean it has some pretty good games but come on

The first Zelda is so boring. Oh try bombing literally every corner of the game in hopes there's a door there, the grind for more bombs so you can keep going. Plus, always only 3 hearts on a reset? The game is grindy as hell and the only reason people have a fond opinion of the game is misplaced nostalgia

Indie games without a publisher are the cultural equivalent of vanity press book self-publishing

Easy mode/no easy mode was the topic for one of the most cantankerous and unpleasant threads in TT history.

Roguelikes are what indie devs who are bad at level design make.

Nostalgia is a cancer on the mind and 8-bit games made after 1993 are a result of opportunism.

I don't understand why so many people waste so much time noodling around with cheap plastic instruments when they could use that time to learn to play a real instrument instead.

The JRPG genre was never good, the only reasons they're remembered fondly is because nerds like genre fiction, nerds like watching numbers go up, and they were kids with more free time than money.

30 minutes a night after your homework is done. 1 hour on weekends.

Taboo: The Sixth Sense is incomparable with most pig entrails you buy. It's unfair that you need to buy the ones with the Nintendo Seal of Approval.

Marble Madness has an archaic and backwards view of Marble Mental Health.

Snake, Rattle & Roll owes money both to Bill Haley & His Comets and to snakes for using their intellectual property without permission.

It's appropriate that it's called the Sega Genesis, because if you played it, you are as old as fucking creation.

Final Fantasy Tactics is a boring, ugly, grindy, badly translated mess of a game with too many obtuse systems and a ridiculous plot that lives a mile up its own ass. It's one of the worst SRPGs every made, and if it didn't have "Final Fantasy" in the name then no one would even remember it today.

3D is the worst thing to happen to video games and especially platformers. Precision platforming will only ever be good in 2D.

Also, many first-person games make me motion sick, and I resent them for reminding me that my body is made of meat and that we will all die one day.

If you want to show an example of video games as art and you point to a game with over 30 minutes of cut scenes, you have failed. Never try to do that again.

There's no skill involved in playing Crawl; you either get lucky or you die.
