    I absolutely love The Addams Family! Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt is another really good (albeit it really hard) platformer. Those are two of my favourite games on the SNES, really like them both.
  2. I haven't properly enjoyed a GTA game since Vice City. I do find that the larger they get the less I enjoy them, amongst other reasons why. Driving round each place that I know and kind of pretending I'm there (sounds a bit sad) knowing everywhere is what I find most fun about them, so when pretty much each place feels unknown and new all the time it takes me out of it.
  3. Story driven games do absolutely nothing for me at all. I'm not really as bothered about it as I was a few years ago since there are plenty of indie and smaller games getting proper releases these days, plus I still enjoy going back to retro stuff, so they keep me busy, but still, I can't help but feel disappointed watching something like Sony's E3 conference and nearly every trailer seems to just be a person walking slowly through a field doing bugger all. And as I just saw something to do with Red Dead Redemption 2 on Reddit, I thought the original was really boring. I liked Undead Nightmare though.

    Thanks Nick! I was pretty lucky getting some of them, mostly a case of right time and place with ones like Vampire's Kiss and the Turricans, I doubt I'd ever have managed to get them under normal conditions

    Took a pic of my games for a Reddit thread yesterday, don't think I've posted one here before I haven't bought any SNES games this year apart from Rockman 7, but I've started to feel like I'm getting the bug again recently. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

    Ah Driver, my favourite PS1 game (I think). I love the atmosphere of the game, the combination of everything fits really well IMO. I used to just drive around doing nothing for hours. The garage was definitely tough as a kid, I tried it a couple of years ago though and did it first try, which was nice. Last time I played it though the game seemed a bit jumpy/glitchy. It might just be the copy I used, I've got another couple to try sometime though. I've never played Driver 2 for some reason. I'll have to give it a go sometime though, maybe this thread will inspire me to do it soon.

    In the past I've used my old Mega Drive PSU on my Super Famicom, but I don't currently have access to it. Will a Master System PSU work ok with it? It's the 3008-05 model. I can't seem to find anything on Google about that particular model PSU and the SFC. Edit: I tried it, seems to work fine.

    Thanks for the replies! I forgot about the SNES Mini.

    Everybody needs Yoshi's Island. I haven't been in a SNES buying phase for about a year or so, but now that I'm getting back into one, looking on eBay there seems to be some games going for less than I remember. Has there been some kind of drop off or something with prices, of have I just seen a few anomalies and they're actually steady/going up still?

    Panned and Bad Games You Love

    Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six on the NES doesn't seem to be well regarden, but I quite like it. It has a dark, gritty feeling which I enjoy. I got mine for 50p from an Alldays/One Stop (can't remember which) for 50p. I remember there was a tub full of them. I'm hoping there were no must haves that I missed in there somewhere.
  12. Yeah it's definitely a great game and one of my favourite on the SNES!
  13. Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt, which is (or was) frustrating because of the last level which is really hard and long. I finally beat it for the first time a month or so ago. Super Ghouls n Ghosts as well. Again it's the last level. I can beat the game the first time, and the second time around I can get to the last level but I can't beat it. Probably because the weapon you have to use is crap.

    Nice post today. Thanks to the two Nicks (@@Nick_L) for receiving and sending me the copy of Addams Family Values

    Yes! Thanks again! Looking forward to getting it, I've been wanting a copy of it for a while.
