Guys. If you hold down shift when pressing enter you can make single-line line breaks instead of the double height ones. 馃槈
There's also the "list" formatting button in the top of the editor which is useful for when listing stuff and you don't want to bother with those line breaks, or numbering stuff manually.

Woo, I beat Journey to Silius - and I have to say, I鈥檓 marginally proud of myself because I found it quite difficult, with the exception of the last stage and final boss which I thought were pretty ea

These are all games I'd like to see played/beaten. It's a shame they're sitting there untouched. Some I've beaten in the past, but for backlog purposes I consider a game not beaten unless I've beaten

馃槱 and what the hell is this?! 聽I can鈥檛聽even input this.

@0xDEAFC0DE聽man you have quite the long list! I thought mine was long lol. I saw you have tingles rosy rupeeland on your list. That鈥檚 a solid DS game and far bigger than I thought it would be going into it. A fair warning, there is one part where you need to dig for stuff iirc and it鈥檚 virtually impossible to do it without an online guide. Other than that part, it was a fun game with a very neat payment mechanic that the game is centered around.聽

1/1 Update

Going to test my setup to make sure everything is operational before I get rolling. May take a group photo of all the games and display them (keep them insight so I can follow through). Haven鈥檛 decided on what game yet.聽

This is an awesome idea. I'll also try to get a pic聽

NINTENDO SWITCH:
1. Dragon Quest XI S
2. Dragon Quest III
3. Dragon Quest I
4.聽Dragon Quest II

^ I am planning to play those in chronological order and not the order they debuted. I have originally beaten Dragon Quest I in 2020, but plan to do it again for the sake of this goal.

5. Final Fantasy VII
6. Grandia I
7.聽Grandia II
8.聽Sega Ages: Phantasy Star

^ I got these between the end of 2019 and the start of 2020.聽I am also hoping to add both Persona 5 Scramble and Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster to my library, but do not want to add those to this list.

PC (STEAM):
9. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Horizon
10.聽Dragon Quest Heroes
11.聽Chrono Trigger
12.聽[pending]

^ I am also thinking of adding Persona 4 Golden to my Steam library. But that is not a high priority right now. So I will figure out if that game, or another, will be my final game for the year.

@ChickenTendas聽For the record I recommended the newer, refined titles聽馃槄

  • TheTick(Reed seems to love recommending this one

  • Heroes of MightandMagic

Hopefully you mean Heroes III.聽 Either way, I applaud your willingness to seek out gaming's roots.

I vote to add it!

If you have never played persona 4 you have to play it and if you have played persona 4 then golden adds enough to make it interesting for a replay.

I just found out it has 44 levels. 44 levels in a beat-em-up. What the fuck. 馃槱

I made the mistake of committing myself to beating that game once. Never again. What an absolutely joyless slog. Be prepared to spend about 3.5 hours wishing you were doing just about anything else.

The first stage is called "Night of a Million Zillion Ninjas". They weren't kidding.

I ended up buying the "Digital Deluxe" version after I found out it was 30% off. All I can say is that the difference turned out to be $1.50 USD between this version and the regular version.聽馃檪

Now I have to figure out who here聽should be blamed if Kanji Tatsumi's beach scene traumatizes me.聽馃槣

First game down on my list. Just finished Final Fantasy Adventure.

Absolutely amazing game, loved everything about it, especially the soundtrack. It has inspired me to start exploring the gameboy library more. 9/10 for me.

Fuck yeah bro.

me too.

I beat the SNES remake of the NES games, Kyuuyaku Megami Tensei, about a year ago. It was alright聽but not much to write home about. Better聽than, say,聽Phantasy Star 1 as a Japanese聽autobattle-heavy first-person dungeon crawler (there鈥檚 an automap!) with both fantasy and sci-fi elements聽but Shin Megami Tensei on SNES took the second game鈥檚聽basic concept and just did it way better.

Gave the first game on Famicom a brief try afterward but bounced pretty quickly. Good luck.

I really enjoyed that game, although one particular puzzle where you had to walk around a rock or a tree or something took me like ten hours to figure out.馃う鈥嶁檪锔馃う鈥嶁檪锔馃う鈥嶁檪锔

@Jeevan Wait until you get to Commandos 1.5.聽 The difficulty really ratchets up.

Haha yeah I have a rule these days for puzzles like that.聽If I can鈥檛 figure it out within 30mins聽then I look it up online. It鈥檚 cheating, but time is too precious to waste on vague puzzles.

I am the same way now and 99% of the time I realize the puzzle was poorly implemented anyways, so I don't even feel bad.
