Super Mario Bros 3 vs Mega Man III which game was harder?

When it comes down to video games from the NES era of gaming there were consoles classics that many people enjoyed that were also very difficult. The Super Mario Bros series in general was tough to complete or many people but some argue that the tough game in the trilogy was either the second or third title. While it’s true that players got a chance to Warp Whistle’s to help them complete Super Mario Bros 3 the game itself felt more challenging than the first two titles at times.

However, when you look at a title like Mega Man 3 where there are no Warp Whistles or shortcuts players can take in order to complete the game than its almost a given that the game is going to be hard to complete. If one had to choose between Super Mario Bros 3 and Mega Man III in terms of which game is harder than without question many people would choose Mega Man 3. Each level of each stage of Mega Man 3 presented obstaclesthat could players could only overcome through trial and error. Also, in Mega Man III players often didn’t have enough lives to complete the whole game in one try. There is no doubt that Mega Man III was one of the hardest NES games of the early 90’s.

Did NES games have higher replay values than modern day titles?

When we look back at classic titles from the 8-bit era of gaming there are some people who can make the argument that videos games were more challenging back in the 80’s then they are today. There were so many titles like the Mega Man series, Super Mario Bros I-III, Contra, Ninja Gaiden and others that were addictive to play because they were simplistic games that were hard to beat.

In this day and age we have 3D RPG titles that we see on consoles such as the PS4 and the Xbox 360 that feel too much like real life simulation with the storylines being the main point of interest until the game is completed. Also, we have 3D shooter titles such as Bioshock, Halo and Portal where the story modes are generally easy to complete. It would seem like once players completed RPG’s or shooter titles that weren’t challenging those titles are instantly found in used game stores while NES and even SNES classics are harder to find in places like Game X Change.

Would Celeste have been successful back in the 80’s?

Ever since it’s recent release Celeste has been praised by critics for its fun yet very challenging gameplay. In fact Celeste has arteries feel to it and looks like a game that you would see for the NES which was released back in the 80’s. The 8 bit like graphics and the difficulty of Celeste makes some people wonder whether or not the game would have been popular in the 80’s or not.

On one hand if Celeste became a success in 2018 then the game would have definitely have been a hit on the NES. On the other hand 80’s pretty much had nothing but 8 bit video games up until the 16 bit Sega Mega Drive was first released back in 1988. For the early to mid 80’s Celeste could of ended up being an 8 bit game that could have easily been overshadowed by countless titles such as the Super Mario Bros series, The Legend of Zelda and Mega Man. There is no doubt that Celeste could have been huge in 80’s but this title stands out more in 2018 since 8-bit gaming is not mainstream anymore; which adds to the overall appeal of the game itself.

Batman Arkham Asylum vs Assassin’s Creed II which game was better?

When it comes down to action adventure games of the 00’s the world has the chance to witness many awesome titles that were released throughout a majority of decade. This is especially true in the late 00’s within the action adventure genre of gaming when we got to see games like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Assassin’s Creed which was released for multiple game consoles such the PlayStation 3 along with the Xbox 360.

In terms of which game was better as an action adventure title is a tough call. Both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Assassin’s Creed II are critically acclaimed action adventure games with interesting stories and amazing graphics. But in terms of sales it seems like Assassin’s Creed II had the edge since it managed to hit over 9 million units since its release in late 2009. But there are also those who might argue that the Unreal Engine used in Batman: Arkham Asylum was more superior than the Anvil game engine utilized in Assassin’s Creed II.

There is no doubt that we got to see some pretty cool games on the Game Boy Advance such as Dragonaball Z Supersonic Warriors which was developed by Cavia and Arc System Works and released back in 2004.  In fact, some might argue that Dragonball Z Supersonic Warriors could have been a success back in the 90’s if it was developed for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System during that time period. After all, Dragonabll Z Supersonic Warriors seemed like a much better 2D game in terms of quality and gameplay than DBZ Butoden I-III which was released exclusively for the SNES back in the 90’s.

Along with getting DBZ Supersonic Warriors for the Game Boy Advance we also got to see The Legacy of Goku II which definitely would have been big in the SNES considering how successful it was for the Game Boy Adventure during the early 00’s.

Is the Nintendo Switch the best game console for non shooter titles?

When we look at games for the Switch or just Nintendo consoles in general it seems like non shooter titles seem to have the most success such game systems. It feels like anything big that is released for the PS4 or the Xbox One are usually shooter games such as Grand Theft Auto V, Destiny 2, Overwatch and Titanfall 2. While games such as Starview Valley. Celeste, Sonic Mania are also released for multiple game consoles they seem to stand out more on the Nintendo Switch than any other game system.

Which console will Kingdom Hearts III have the most success on?

Kingdom Hearts III is one of the most anticipated RPG titles of the gaming world right now and will be released sometime in 2018. In terms of which game console that Kingdom Hearts III is going to have the most success on is debatable. Generally older titles like Kingdom Hearts II had the most success on Sony consoles such as the PlayStation 2.

Based on the fact the Kingdom Hearts I & II were both popular on the PS2 and were top sellers for that game system it’s safe to say that can expect the same to be true for Kingdom Hearts III for the PS4. In terms of graphics some would argue that PS4 would have the slight edge over Xbox One especially since the game will be utilizing the Unreal Engine 4.

Which console will Starlink: Battle for Atlas have the most success on?

The gaming world is still waiting for the release of Starlink: Battle for Atlas which is expected to be released for multiple game consoles later this year. The question how well will Starlink do in terms of sales and which game console is it more likely to have the most success on. While action adventure titles are always exciting that particular genre is not quite as popular as shooter or RPG category of gaming. Both shooters and RPG’s are usually big on the PS4 and the Xbox One while it seems like almost anything can fly on the Nintendo Switch.

If anything Starlink: Battle for Atlas would probably stand out more on the Nintendo Switch than it would on the PS4 or the Xbox One. As of right now there is no guarantee that Starlink will have the most success on the Nintendo Switch but when it comes down to diversity in terms of different gaming genres it seem like more titles such as Celeste or Sonic Mania stands out more on the Nintendo Switch.

Celeste gets a good reception

Not to long ago a 2D platform game called Celeste was released for multiple game consoles such as the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and the PS4. While some might argue that the game itself is very difficult others say that it’s the perfect platform game. If you are a retro gamer from the 80’s then it’s understandable why IGN decided to give Celeste a perfect ten in terms of overall quality. Celeste is simple yet very challenging platform title that forces players to learn from their mistakes in order to complete the game.

Back in the 8 bit era of gaming there were countless platform titles for the NES that were difficult or even impossible to complete such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Street Fighter 2010, The Final Fight and more. The idea of making a very basic yet difficult video game was something that added to the appeal of retro games back in the 80’s and early 90’s and its cool that Noel Berry and Matt Thomson was able to capture that feel with Celeste.

Could Xenogears have worked on the Sega Dreamcast?

When it comes down to quality there are many people who believe the the Sega Dreamcast was a much better game console than the PS1 was back in the 90’s. Also, Square didn’t release Xenogears until 1998 which was the same year the game was released in countries like America. While seeing Xenogears on the Dreamcast could have been something that may have worked out and theory and possibly practice Square wasn’t really making games with Sega at all.

If Sony never became apart of the console wars there was a good chance that Square Enix could of ended up working with Sega if the fallout with Nintendo had still occurred. There is no doubt that Xenogears could have worked out on the Sega Dreamcast but it’s questionable whether or not the game would have had as much success as it did on the PS1.
