Recommended Posts

How's your year in gaming been going? Post the games you played so far in 2024 and how you rank them. I made my graphic with the offline tierlist maker from https://github.com/silverweed/tiers taking images from the search on https://topsters.org/ and cropping them to squares with paint.net. Feel free to be lazy and just post text though. My list is roughly ordered within each tier.

I'll listen to arguments that SMB3 or Contra are overrated but still

Yes, we must spread the word that Beyond Oasis is mediocre. There are way too many better Genesis games out there for how many "lists" that game appears on. The mid Dark Forces score makes me sad though.

The hearts specifically may be a smidge misleading in some cases - I put them beside games which were both personal favourites, and games which are new to me but I really liked a lot. The emojis weren't initially a ranking device, so I'd not necessarily consider the list as-is to be "I think these games are better than those below them".

I don't recall if it was said, which version did you play, Reed? Playstation port, PC original or Remaster?

Remaster

With my scoring, it's not a bad game.  But if I tried to convince myself I enjoyed it as much as any of those games I put above it I'd just be lying to myself.  Many of its mechanics and systems have aged less gracefully than Doom.
