PURE consistency. Game after game and you're getting good content only.

ehh

There is no doubt that AS/OM and sun/moon could've been better, but the series is still something which consistently pushes out games worthy of 80-88ish, which is why I give it recognition.

 

The 3ds is laughably weak, and it's obvious they wanted to truly expand the game. Nintendo is improving many of your IP's, so don't be too worried about the series.i know you disliked sun/moon, but the Switch titles will hopefully allow the new director to do what he wanted

Oh I'm pretty sure he already did a lot of stuff he wanted to do. Weak hardware was never the reason for introducing UBs or Z-moves.

I do want to believe Pokémon will make a return to form on the Switch, but it's just impossible with that guy in charge. I have absolute zero trust in him, with the 3 games he's been involved with being by far the 3 Pokémon games I most dislike, and all of them having introduced very crappy ideas (which can't be thrown away in later games because this is Pokémon).

I do think Sun/Moon are alright games on their own, 7.5ish maybe. It's the additions they make to the franchise that make them so hard for me to swallow - on the other hand, OR/AS are just plain terrible.



1. Final Fantasy (despite the massive decline in quality, the old games keep it as my #1)

Updating my list

I am silly and forgot a big one, Dragon Quest!
And one kind of big one, Soul Blazer.

In addition, my ordering was a bit weird. I didn't put enough thought into it. While Xenogears is my favourite game of all time, there are no other Xeno games I can put in my top 10, even though all of the Xeno games make my top 50. I don't think I have gone a single season of any year since about 1988 or so where I have not played a core Mario game, or one of its many spinoffs. I can't even say the same about the Xeno franchise which began in 1998 - and currently amounts to only 6 games - against the, maybe, 50 Mario games I own. With multiple series of games and spinoffs that I love: Mario Galaxy, Mario Bros, Mario Kart, Super Paper Mario, Mario RPG, Yoshi, Dr. Mario, Mario Party, etc... no other franchise is so heavily represented in my library, so Mario is a clear number 1.

I am mostly going by the number of games I enjoy in the franchise, and the amount of time I put into games; franchises like Pokemon, Shin Megami Tensei, Disgaea, and others, require lots of time to get the most out of the games, but I find with all of those I have a tolerance of no more than about 35-40 hours, and then I feel like I am wasting my life. Xeno, Dragon Quest, Zelda, Harvest Moon, and Paradox grand strategy games are the only franchises I have put 100+ hours into one playthrough... and with those, I always considered high quality gaming time. Breath of the Wild is my first 100+ hour Zelda, I have played them all (minus the licensed out games).

I would love to put Resident Evil, Castlevania, Breath of Fire, Suikoden, and others, but each has issues. Resident Evil, I only really liked 1-3, and only liked 4 because of the Wii controls, I don't enjoy it at all without IR aiming. Castlevania, I was a big fan of all the games from the beginning, but especially Castlevania 3, Super Castlevania, Rondo of Blood, Symphony of the Night, and Circle of the Moon; I did not enjoy any post-Circle of the Moon, each game afterwards felt like it was falling more and more behind gaming trends, and they lacked the spirit of earlier games. Suikoden, I feel the same as Resident Evil, while I love 1 and 2, the remainder of the games felt a little weak to me. Breath of Fire and Lufia, games like that, I have always enjoyed, but have found every game in those franchises tend to have too many imperfections. Lunar, Earthbound, and others are like Suikoden, too few games I enjoy. Soul Blazer is just a trilogy, but I replay all of those games to this day, and would put all three games in my top 20 of all time, only bonus points for tacking on related games like ActRaiser.

Unfortunately, I have to say goodbye to Animal Crossing and Ace Attorney on my list; they got pushed off.

1. Mario
2. Xeno (gears, saga, and blade)
3. Dragon Quest
4. Zelda
5. Final Fantasy (only 1, 3-8, Tactics, X, and the gameboy games that are technically other franchises)
6. Soul Blazer (Soul Blazer, Illusion of Time, Terranigma)
7. Paradox grand strategy games
8. Harvest Moon (now Story of Seasons and Rune Factory, screw Natsume's current "Harvest Moon" games)
9. Fire Emblem
10. Kirby



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Over the years, and in no particular order:

Suikoden
Persona
Metal Gear
Zelda
Final Fantasy
Xeno (Saga, Gears)
Street Fighter
Tekken
King of Fighters
Shadow Hearts
Kingdom Hearts

Well, the Switch has been doing well in terms of improving franchises. I'll be optimistic surrounding Prime 4 and Gen 8, but we'll see what happens
