Tekken 5 (PlayStation 2)

Change From Last Year: -1

To me, Tekken 5 is the peak of Namco's long-running fighting game series. From the faster paced fighting system compared to the previous games, to the roster that basically includes every single one of my favourite characters, this was the game that overtook Tekken 3 as the best in the series, and since then nothing has changed. Tekken 6 was very good as well, but it still wasn't quite as good as 5, and I still haven't gotten around to playing 7. 

Naturally, the best way to play games like this is with friends sitting around the same TV and passing around the controllers around. That is something that has become disappointingly rare in recent years for me, but from time to time the chance to do so still comes around, and it's always fun.

Perfect Dark

A fair guess, but I don't believe Perfect Dark was ever supposed to have a male protagonist in early development. So, Perfect Dark is incorrect.

I also have never played it. It's one of those have-to-play classics I never played; like I also never played Final Fantasy VII. At some point I should get those games and play them all.

My next three:

32 and 31 are both crossover titles, the latest in both series due to the huge amount of content in each.

I suppose one of those is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I would have to look stuff up to come up with the other though.

#33 and #34 are correct!!

#38 is not.

We've all got those classic games that we really should have played but just haven't. I'm a huge fan of JRPGs, especially Square, but I've never played more than an hour of Chrono Trigger. I also really liked the first Half Life but after getting The Orange Box, I just played Portal and the intro to Half Life 2. Two games, widely regarded as classics, that I'll probably really enjoy. I even own them, but I just never feel like playing them...I'll have to force myself, one day.

No One Lives Forever?



#36 - Castlevania Circle of the Moon - GBA

I'm not a fan of Koji Igarashi's games, so this being one of the two Metroidvania he wasn't involved with, makes for one of my favorite games from the series, mainly because it doesn't abandon the element I love the most about Castlevania, the challenge, while still being mixed with good exploration pacing from the Metroid style, also features a very good card system that rewards you with various perks in combat, an amazing soundtrack that ranges from new to great remixes from past games and the best Dracula fight to ever grace the series, this is one amazing adventure.

#35 - Castlevania Rondo of Blood - TG-16

The good design of Maria Renard, that is all.

Also The Den.



Let's have a champion time!

As I currently haven't time to create the description post I can use the time to give another hint, than I have some catch-up to do:

#35

a) Fight with knights, mages, elves, thieves or… merfolk?

b) Control your armies one turn at a time.

c) Turn-based tactics on a hexgrid with units able to level up and turn into advanced classes.

d) Got updates and extensions for more than 10 years.

e) Fight in a Tale of two brothers Under the burning Suns for The heir to the throne.

f) More than 15 official single-player campaigns, many multiplayer maps and tons of user-generated content.

#34 Guessed by The_Liquid_Laser: Dragon Quest Builders

#33 Guessed by The_Liquid_Laser: Pikmin

#32 Guessed by Farsala: Final Fantasy X

I went ahead and had Google help me with #35 (since there are 6 clues and no one has gotten it yet).  I think it's The Battle for Wesnoth.

Yes it is. The names of the campaigns in hint e were intended to make it googleable. Still you had luck, because I planned to reveal it earlier, but just didn't had the time to write the post. So you got another one.
