The Game Boy Advance has every type of yu-gi-oh experience you could possibly want. Straightforward simulations of various types, RPGlike games that use more of an anime style for the rules, hardcore shit for true Yugiheads, literally episodes of the anime on a GBA cartridge, Dungeon Dice Monsters, a fucking MARIO PARTY CLONE...
Therefore, the GBA has definitively claimed its position as the best console for yugioh games.

The PlayStation 2 has everything a wresting fan could ever want short of literally porting No Mercy. Multiple SmackDown! series games that are in the discussion for best wrestling game ever, for one, not to mention the entire rest of that series from 2001 to 2011, mostly decent games that still provide unique characters and season modes. Then there's Def Jam, the spiritual successors to No Mercy, Rumble Rose's, Legends of Wrestling, Backyard Wresting plus one of the best Fire Pro games. No other console even comes close to the amount of wrestling content and having most of the Top 5 for the genre right there is a plus
The PlayStation 2 is therefore the best console for professional wrestling games.

Is it even worth it to find these pedantic distinctions? Yes, because consoles that truly have a lockdown on a particular genre or type of game are in some small way more exceptional than all others.

Playing through this game after reading the thread yesterday. It's as mediocre as everyone says, and yet I'm engaged enough to see it through (not unlike the show it's based on).

Stewie's levels are pretty easy once you get the hang of his mechanics, but sometimes the lock-on doesn't work at all, leaving you getting hit while you scramble around the screen frantically pressing the button to see if you can get it to work. Not that big of a deal since the levels are so damn easy and provide you with plenty of health.

Brian's levels are insufferable. They're not difficult per se, but very much trial-and-error and buggy half the time (frequently sending you back to the last checkpoint when it shouldn't have), and I had to sit through the opening cutscene and mini-game of the first shower room half a dozen times for no reason.

Haven't gotten to Peter's levels yet.

It has managed to get a couple of chuckles out of me so far, so there's that. The maternity ward scene was legitimately kind of funny.

Stewie's levels are fine, but...

Fucking. Brian's levels. Are INFUIRATING. I've tried the police office part nearly 20 times, and the worst part is, it's not even difficult for any skill-based reason, you just have to keep fucking up until you memorize the patterns and learn how the mechanics work. Now I can scoot through most of the level just fine, but I keep getting caught by Adam West at the very end, just when I'm about to escape. Because I can't, for the life of me, figure out how his line-of-sight works or when it's safe to move. And then I get to spend another four minutes plodding through the entire section again so that I can get back to trial-and-erroring the last part.

VH1 has always been one of my go to games when I'm in the mood for an SRPG. It's the right difficulty balance I think, not spirt crushing brutal but not quite brain dead. I like that there's a lot of variety in the stage designs and mission structure and it just feels like they have a nice sense of forward momentum, which I feel is something a lot of SRPGs lack.

>> No.9158195

What I'm not so sure on so far with 2 is weapon skills. There's nothing wrong with it in theory but if you want to find all the chests and items you've got to have a dedicated knife user who essentially avoids combat. I'm just onto act 2 where you're an adult so this problem may be short lived, I think it's an issue with thief classes in any rpg anyhow.

It has to be the most technologically-advanced N64 game. The graphics and sound are really impressive for the hardware.
Parts of it are definitely edgy like old South Park but mixed with low-brow British and scat humor. The scat humor is heavy. Otherwise, the writing and presentation are good and its multiplayer is one of the best on 64.
I don't think it ever had appeal with adults. It's more for an audience of preteens who watch Family Guy. I played Conker when I was 13 so I like it, and I definitely get why it would make grown adults cringe in this day and age.

>>9158045
This. Loved it as a 10 year old, cringe as an adult now. Some bits are well acted, but it's mostly late 90's low-tier comedy central humor. It's real appeal is as a technological marvel. The amount of voiceover they crammed into an N64 cart is incredible. The graphics are also quite impressive. Overall, the fact this game got made at all is the most entertaining thing about it. Rare was the golden child of 90's scotformers and they close out the decade (and their relationship with Nintendo) with Bad Fur Day. It's an absolutely bizarre and amusing piece of video game history, but as game, a letdown.
