As the link in the Official Game Threads List is broken and I can't find the original topic through searching or going back some pages, I'm making this new topic. If you have any problem deciding between a number of games, you post your question in here and someone (or some people) will answer you. This is not a place to post "Get this game" if no one has asked about it. I may add new rules if things get out of hand, but I don't see that happening.

Since my thread was closed....

I currently have Gamecube and Playstation 2.

I'm in search for a new game, it doesn't have to be from those genres, but I do want to have a lot of play hours out of this new game. Right now i'm leaning towards one of these.

Fire Emblem: PoR
God of War
Kingdom Hearts 2

A few games I love....

Resident Evil 4
Star Ocean: Till the end of Time
Earthbound
Kingdom Hearts
Prince of Persia

Any suggestions?

bi0hazard, if you liked the first Kingdom Hearts, you'll LOVE the sequel. Kingdom Hearts II is amazing. The combat has been beefed up significantly. I found the combat in KH to be boring, but with the addition of Drives and Limits, KHII's combat is significantly better.

Although like Eric said, God of War is also a great game. AND, since it's on the Greatest Hits list, it's only $20. You can't go wrong with God of War for $20.

For PS2 you can also get the new Rampage for $20. It also features the NES Rampage as well as Rampage World Tour. So you get 3 fun and entertaining games for $20, which isn't too bad. Though it's not like the other games you mentioned, it's a fun, quick type game.

I'm not really sure I understand this topic. He said don't post about games no one asked about but mods are doing it. I'll just take this chance to encourage you all to get Skies of Arcadia Legends for GC while you can. It is one of my favorite games and definately the best RPG I've ever played. Just get through the first three levels. Those were terrible, but the rest is good.

I'm searching for a game worthy of buying for the XBOX 360, other than Oblivion of course, because as of now I only have Oblivion :(.

I like alot of different genres, but if anyone has played anything particular that they'd like to recommend, that would be awesome.

ALL you need is Oblivion. No go play and apologize for betraying him.

I'm sorry :( I will close another 50 Oblivion gates to make up for my treason, mr Orange.

Nah but seriously.. Has anyone tried Fifa 2006 for instance? Is it worth buying or is it just the same as 05 ?

Have you checked out Xbox Live Arcade? Geometry Wars Retro Evolved is pure madness. Seriously, if you can, grab it. It's only 400 points ($5) and by far the best XBLA game. You could also pick up Rockstar Presents Table Tennis, which is coming out tomorrow and is only $40.

New Mario Bros. seem to be getting better reviews. However, as the Weekly Geek podcast said on one post, it just panders to nostalgia. It isn't as much of a sequel as a homage to the original. If you like old school games, go with NMB.
Metroid Prime Hunters is great, although flawed (example: only variations of three bosses). Mostly, if you don't have either friends with DS's or can't go online, it isn't worth it.

Well all I can suggest, is that if any of you have Game Boy Advance, you should get Metroid Zero Mission. It's a remake of the original Metroid and ten times funner in my opinion. Plus the music makes it more fun and it's graphics are nice, too.

Strangely, those were the two games I bought alongside my DS Lite yesterday. Of the two, I would recommend New Super Mario Bros. MP: Hunters is good/fun but NSMB is outstanding.

The next one I'll probably get will be Mariokart.

Good games for the DS, (In my view) You should have got brain age, New SMB, Wario Ware, ANIMAL CROSSING, and Bleach DS: Souten ni Kakeru Unmei, Mario Kart is fine as well.

The hot hot games on DS are:

Mario Kart
New Super Mario Bros.
Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Meteos


Probably in that order. You may also enjoy:

Sonic Rush
Animal Crossing: Wild World
Kirby Canvas Curse

Three DS games I have that I got bored with pretty quickly are Trauma Center, Mario and Luigi 2, and Mario 64 DS. I'd only suggest these if you get them cheap/used. Actually, you probably don't want Mario 64 at all unless you have no access to the original anymore. Controls suck balls.

Anyway, I myself am looking for some good cheap Cube games. I already own or have owned pretty much all the high profile stuff. Mainly I've been looking at Mega Man Anniversary Collection, Pikmin 2, Tales of Symphonia, and Baten Kaitos. Anyone got an opinion on these, or any other lower-tier GC stuff?

Hmmm....that's hard but out of all of those I suggest you get Tale of Symphonia. Baten Kaitos is a good game but it gets boring near the end, but it was definetly underrated. Pikmin is WAY too short, and Megaman is WAY too impossible(X series anyway) so I'd skip those.

MGS3, God of War, Resident Evil 4, SOCOM, Dragon Quest 8 and Madden if you like that sort of stuff.

If you're looking for a great RPG(and are waiting for FF12) I suggest you pick up Dragon Quest 8:Journey of the Cursed King. A long RPG that's challenging, the art is done by Akira Toriyama(the man who drew DBZ), the music fits the mood perfectly, and the combat and leveling system are great. The environment you run around in is HUGE, even rivaling Oblivion's environment.(that's right, the huge RPG on the 360)

The only problem I think anyone would have with this game is that sometimes you'll find yourself trying to level up for hours to earn gold for weapons, and so you can move unto the next area. It's worth it though, it's satisfying when you characters level up though. Easily one of the best RPGs on the PS2. Also, the game isn't as serious as FF, but that's one of the things that make it fun to play. People who like RPGS like Earthbound, SMRPG will like this, and so will the people who play FF, and Chrono Trigger.

MGS3 is the best out of all of those though.
Already have God of War, it's like the Ninja Gaiden of PS2:-p. Anyway, i'd rather have basketball over football. Which Madden, the latest one?

Thanks

Out of all the Pokemon RPGs for Game Boy Advance like Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, etc., which one is the best and which should I get? I was mainly interested in Sapphire.

Uhhh...are you into Mario? Mario Kart: Double Dash is a good suggestion in my opinion. And of course, there is Super Smash Bros. Melee.

But does anyone think they can answer my question above?
