Will Super Mario Galaxy ever appear on the Nintendo Switch?

As many people might already know its been over 10 years since Super Mario Galaxy appeared on the Nintendo Wii back in November 2007. Super Mario Galaxy was probably the most popular 3D Mario game of the 2000’s decade and is a game that managed to reach over 12 million units worldwide in terms of sales. There is no question on whether or not Super Mario Galaxy deserves to be released for the Nintendo Switch. However, there has been no announcements or plans in relation to Super Mario Galaxy coming to the Switch console anytime in the near future.

After all, there is always the possibility that Super Mario Galaxy could be overshadowed by Super Mario Odessey which is one of the best selling Mario games of all time for the Nintendo Switch. To be quite honest Super Mario Galaxy is better off as a Wii exclusive but seeing on the Switch would be awesome despite the fact that its unlikely to ever happen.

Should Grand Theft Auto VI be saved for the PlayStation 5?

As many people know Gran Theft Auto V has been out since September 2013 and since then as become one of the most popular action adventure titles of the 10’s decade. Since its release five years ago Grand Theft Auto V has managed to become the second best selling game for the Xbox 360 by reaching over 17 million units worldwide in sales. Also, since the Fall of 2013 Grand Theft Auto V has been ported to multiple game such as the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 along with the Xbox One and has managed to sell over millions copies worldwide and has reportedly earned over $6 billion in revenue.

While Grand Theft Auto VI would be nice game to have for the PlayStation 4 it would probably be best if RockStar saves it for the PlayStation 5. However, seeing how Grand Theft Auto V was released for multiple game systems there is a good chance that Grand Theft Auto VI will appear on the PlayStation 4 along with the PlayStation 5 once the game has been officially announced RockStar Games. As of right now there is very little we know about Grand Theft Auto VI however we do know that it will be one of the most highly anticipated sequels to an action-adventure title in quite sometime.

Should there have been an Actraiser game for the N64?

When we think about popular side scrolling titles for the SNES that were popular in the early 90’s that never made to the N64 games such as the Actraiser series comes to mind. The two platform city building simulation titles known as Actraiser 1 & 2 developed by Quintet are seen as underrated classics that deserved re-releases but never received them. In fact, some would argue that Actraiser 1 & 2 were both unique titles among many others from the Super NES that made people want to purchase the console itself. The reason why Quintet never decided to make an Actraiser game for the Nintendo 64 is unknown.

Bit them again it would be pretty hard to picture what an Actraiser game would look like in 3D. Also, Nintendo was starting to lose ground to Sony’s PS1 during the console wars towards the mid 90’s and having an Actraiser game for the N64 could of been disastrous. An Actraiser game for the PS1 definitely could have worked in theory. However, there were so many big titles on the PS1 during the mid to late 90’s such as Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy VII & VIII and Gran Turismo that people in countries such as Japan and America that people were far more interested in during that time period. Bringing back the Actraiser on the Game Boy Advance during the early 00’s could have turned heads especially since some popular SNES were ported to the 32 bit console during that time period.

Double Dragon II: The Revenge (1988) vs Battletoads (1991) which game was more popular?

As many people know the beat em up genre was very popular back in the late 80’s and early 90’s within the gaming world.

In terms of which title was more popular following their respective releases for the NES is one that is debatable among gamers.

While the NES Battletoads game arguably had better visuals in relation to stage design some would that Double Dragon II had certain features that made it standout even more. Certain things such as boss characters having their own theme music along with players having the chance to battle each other at the end of the game in co-op mode made Double Dragon Isi a memorable NES Classic. In terms of which beat em up was more popular on the NES most would probably give Double Dragon II the edge over Battletoads.

Could Chrono Trigger have been a major success on the Game Boy Advance?

When it comes down to big SNES RPG titles to never appear on the Game Boy Advance Chrono Trigger is definitely on top of many people’s list. Despite, the fact that Square Enix released RPG titles such such as Sword of Mana along Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls for what ever we never got to see a re-release or a sequel to Chrono Trigger back in the early 00’s. While its true that the Chrono series slowly started to decline following the release of Chrono Trigger back in 1995 there are still people who wanted to see a re-release of the game sometime between 2001-2005. If Square Enix has went with the decision to re-release Chrono Trigger for the GBA the game could of still been a huge attraction on the 32-bit handheld console.

While some might argue that the Pokémon series could of overshadowed Chrono Trigger in the early 00’s the game still would have been appealing to hardcore fans of the series while giving those who were unfamiliar with the game a chance to see what they missed on the SNES during the early 90’s.

Could Strider have been a huge success for the SNES?

Ever since, the game first appeared in arcade centers it received positive reviews from fans and critics alike and was ported for the Sega Genesis along with the Master System between 1990-1991. In fact, some would argue that Strider was probably the best platform title to never appear on the NES or the SNES during the early 90’s.

But then again Strider could have been overshadowed by the likes of Super Mario World, Mega Man X, Donkey Kong Country and many others. If anything having Strider as a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive exclusive contributed to the overall appeal of the game itself. Strider could have Berta success on the SNES but not to same extent that it was on the Genesis/ Mega Drive consoles.

Thunder Force II (1988) vs Super R-Type (1991) which game was more popular?

When it comes down to the scrolling shooter genre of gaming there are many retro gamers who remember titles such as the R-Type and the Thunder Force series which were popular in the late 80’s and early 90’s. While Super R-Type is well known for its unusual level of difficulty there are many people who remember Thunder Force II for its gameplay in general. After the first ever Thunder Force game was released back in 1983 as a Japanese exclusive Thunder Force II saw various improvements from its predecessor such as the inclusion of stages from a top-down perspective in addition to the side scrolling levels.

In fact, Monster Hunter World has recently become the best selling game that Capcom has ever made surpassing the likes of surpassing the likes of Resident Evil 5, 6 and 7. In terms of best selling Capcom games in general both the Resident Evil and the Monster Hunter series have remained within that category throughout a majority of the 10’s decade. Seeing how Monster Hunter: World has not been available in retail for a full year just yet its safe to say that sales for that game will continue to climb for next couple of years.

When it comes down to Game Boy classics from the early 90’s that was very popular Kirby’s Dream Land is one of the many titles to come to mind. Kirby’s Dream Land was first released back in the summer of 1992. Ever since its release Kirby’s Dream Land has managed to sell over 5.1 million copies worldwide.

Kirby’s Dream Land definitely had the potential to be big on the NES back in ’92. The only issue the fact that the 8 bit NES was beginning to decline in popularity during the time because of more advanced game systems such as the Sega Genesis and the Super NES. If Kirby’s Dream Land was released for the SNES opposed to Game Boy back in the early 90’s it could have possibly became more popular than it was. But then again we did get Kirby’s Adventure the following year for the NES back in ’93. If Kirby’s Dream Land was released for the NES in ’92 there is a good chance that it may not have sold as much as it did for Game Boy.

When it comes down to titles within the Contra series over the past three decades Operation C is arguably the most overlooked game in general. For those who do not know Operation C was released back in 1991 for Game Boy. Operation C was the first ever game within the Contra series to be featured on a handheld game system and was a title that fans of the series enjoyed during that time period. Despite, being a single player game along with having black & white visuals Operation C featured some unique gameplay in relation to certain stages.

Stages 1, 3 & 5 were basic side-scrolling shooter levels while 2 & 4 has a top down perspective which made Operation C interesting especially for a handheld game system during the early 90’s. However, seeing how Contra III: The Alien Wars was released for the SNES the following year in ’92 Konami most likely saw no point in releasing Operation C for the NES especially since the 8-bit console was starting to get old around that time. But in terms on whether or not Operation C could have been more successful on the NES than Game Boy is highly debatable. In all, honesty having Operation C NES opposed to Game Boy could have definitely made the game standout more during the early 90’s.
