Zelda II? Even though the RPG elements are minimal, it's close enough to an RPG.

Fallout: New Vegas or Vagrant Story
This seems a little redundant since you've already listed action sub-genres. I guess the only "pure action" game I can think of is Tomb Raider 1.
Don't get into these games. I can play the occasional round of StarCraft or a Shining Force title, but there's nothing I like enough to consider a favorite.
Super Columns or Tetris 2 (Tetris Flash)
>Beat 'Em Up:
Streets of Rage 1. Muh Adam <3
None. Hate this genre.
Wouldn't say I have a favorite, but I can get into arcade racers like San Francisco Rush, or kart racing games.
>Traditional Sports:
None. Not my genre.
>Alternative Sports:
The Sims 3
>2D Fighter:
Marvel vs. Capcom
>3D Fighter:
Super Smash Bros. Melee
>Game Based On a Movie:
None. I think all these licensed games suck. Sunsoft's Batman for the NES wasn't so bad, but that's a rare exception.

Gate of Thunder? Why have I never heard of this shooter, before. It's good?

Rondo of Blood--nice choice. Even over Super Castlevania IV?

Hey said "Retro games" man, and this is /vr so you should of guessed to being with.

>> No.1622831

I'm not a shmup expert but Gate of Thunder is by far my favorite. Awesome CD soundtrack too. It's on the VC.

I take Rondo way over SCV4. Love 4 but Rondo is pretty much classic formula CV perfection
