Here are some clues for my next few games.

30.  This popular series had let you choose your character before, but this is the first time where 4 different people could also play at the same time.

29.  Probably the biggest selling point of this PC RPG is the toolset which lets you build your own adventures or play those others have built.  This is the first game in the series.

28.  Mode 7 graphics are one thing that originally made this game impress, but the playstyle for this franchise is nothing like this game any more.

27.  A similar style PS4 game came out last year, but I still prefer this PS2 game that was based more on a movie.

26.  This MMO got a numbered entry in the franchise even though every previous entry was a single player game.

More hints.

36- Go on a winged lizard journey, to save the world. In this game the hero is accused of evil, but in reality he is the true savior. It was first released in 2017.

35- This entry in a long standing series featured a character for the first time that could make explosions with his sword.

34- Who knew that there are whole worlds behind paintings?

Reveal

36- Dragon Quest XI

As much as I enjoy JRPGs and the Dragon Quest series, I never thought this game would get this high on my list. But the truth is I enjoyed this game immensely. When I first bought the game I played and played until completion. After which, I went straight for the platinum. This game has a pretty good story, soundtrack and gameplay. Globetrotting across the different zones was quite enjoyable with many different monsters, and I could skip any monster if I wanted to or kill them for fun. Leveling up, and Choosing the skills that I wanted felt extremely impactful with the skill tree. Later when fighting the super bosses, if I chose to fight the bosses normally I would lose. This is a good thing, because if I found the optimal buffs and combos for my party, I would do massive damage to the super bosses and make them significantly easier. I think this is how super bosses should be in JRPGs.

35- Super Smash Bros. Melee  -Unguessed

The character in question is Roy, my favorite character. Although objectively not as good as the top tier, I enjoyed getting to know the best combos and spacing for Roy. The other characters were also fun and many many hours were spent with friends destroying each other. Although the Gamecube controller often had issues, when they were in pristine shape it was the best controller to use for Smash Bros.

34- Super Mario 64

Not much needs to be said about this 3d platformer. The first level set the stage for what this amazing game is all about. Each painting found means a whole new world to explore and grabbing all the stars. Good music and the mechanics were good for its time.

#29: Does it have a Switch-release soon… Neverwinter Nights

#26: Dragon Quest X

29 is correct.  The others are not.  Which is funny, because I would have thought 29 would be guessed last.

And yeah, I am looking at all those D&D PC games coming to Switch.  Those all fall into the category of "want to play, but there are also a ton of other games I want to play too".  I've never had a chance to play Planescape Torment, but I've always wanted to. And all of the other games in that Baldur's Gate-like line look really good too.  But I still haven't gotten Link's Awakening or Mario Maker 2 yet.  I instead chose to play Dragon Quest XI, and I'm still in the middle of it.  It's a really good game, but damn is it long.

Anyway, I'm not sure how they will handle Neverwinter Nights on the Switch.  The campaign that comes with it is only so-so, and definitely not as good as the Baldur's Gate games.  What I really liked about Neverwinter Nights is all of the levels that the players made.  As long as you limit yourself to the top 5-10% the levels were extremely good.  I'm doubtful if those will be made available on the Switch.

Around the Network

#35 - A map of the first area of the game became a meme, because much of the game was designed this way. So people called it a ***** simulator.
This is one of the direct sequels to that game, featuring the fewest number of playable characters in the series.
Hint #2 - What I like the most about it is a very rare gameplay mechanic that was also in Majora's Mask.

#34 - The first entry in a series with four numbered entries, and one without a number. Sniper rifles are very good in this series.
Hint #2 - The latest one, with the number 4 on the cover, was released worldwide in 2018.

#33 - Geese and Akuma are in this game. It's the second entry in that series.
Hint #2 - This is the true love we're makin'.

#32 - Punching a boulder.

28. no

26. Correct!



32. You never really die in this game, but if you get a game over, you get turned into a plant-animal hybrid.

31. A dethroned king becomes a pirate and kidnaps your uncle.

30. Blasphemy time. Our gracious host especially would regard the placing of this title on the list above another game to be an abomination.
