TMNT. Forgot that one. That was tough as hell. I don't think I ever finished that one. I think I got as far as Krang.

I couldn't get into Vice City. I guess I just hate the 80's. All the pastel colors were annoying also.

I tried to go back and play it again after SA, but after you play SA you just can't go back to the old controls. They sucked.

Mario Kart Wii is owning me right now. After completing each cup you get given a rating.

The ratings goes as follows:

*** - 3 stars, highest rating
** - 2 stars
* - 1 star
A
B
C
D
E - lowest rating

The cups are split up into 50cc, 100cc and 150cc. If you get at least a 1 star rating in every cup it allows you to unlock certain characters/karts. I've got at least 1 star on every 50cc track, and most on 100cc, but it's getting really hard now. I keep getting A or B ratings lately, and need to keep practicing to try and get up the the 1 star ratings. So yeah, I'm hooked!

Ha, good memories.

Jaws was both hard AND stupid… but I still liked the game back when I was young…

Dragon Warrior wasn't too difficult but the mechanic is a bit rough… Dragon Quest VII(PSX) isn't necessarly hard but LONG like 100+ hours and Dragon Quest VIII(PS2) is pretty long (took me about 92 hours) but Dragon Quest is still one of the greatest RPG franchises to this day. DQVIII is top 5 PS2 RPG's for sure!

Final Fantasy 12.

That is the worst Final Fantasy of all. It's not that I can beat it, I'm sure if I continue to waste for hours I'd beat it, it just so annoyingly sorry.

Yeah, eventually you get to a point where you're crusing through the game at level 15 thinking 'Wow, I've gotten this far at such a low level, there must be so much more to do!' and then you realize you're 50% through the game and the next boss kills you in one shot. For example, the game expects you to be level 30 but you can still kill everything in the area at level 10 and you don't realize this til the next boss where you see the Game Over screen seconds in.

Game takes a lot of grinding.

I lost interest in Final Fantasy after the last game on SNES.

I did play Final Fantasy VII and it was decent but gets overrated.
FFIX was alright too.

I played through FFX and FFX-2 and had enough there.

Dragon Quest VIII was a breath of fresh air for classic style JRPGs. I played the FFXII demo that came with DQVIII but was not impressed.

Halo 3.. When I first started playing online I'd just run around with the AR and get raped.
