    Final Fantasy X (63) - I love Skyrim and will always defend it, but FFX was a formative gaming experience for me as a kid.

    Kingdom Hearts II (31) - Still the best KH game and still one of the best PS2 games.

    Marvel's Spider-Man (2018) (50) - I’m voting against Pokémon the rest of the way no matter what it’s up against.

    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (18) - Hollow Knight is great but WW is an all-time classic video game.

    Memories are nice, but that's all they are. Prestigious

    Final Fantasy X
    Persona 5
    Pokemon
    Wind Waker

    KH2/Persona 5 was the only hard matchup for me. Wind Waker is the best Zelda. FFX is top 5 all time for me, and was one of my first entries into JRPGs

    sorry! i think the only time ive posted a new round in the hub thread was when round two started because that thread has such low activity - i didn't even think about people getting notifications from it because i turned those off so long ago haha. ill start doing that! i always post the new round in the thread for the previous round

    FF10 is so linear, whereas Skyrim is so full of possibilities, or felt that way at least. Easy choice for me.

    Yeah but FFX is better in pretty much every regard: story, characters, battle system, character development system, art direction, etc.

    Art direction is apples and oranges imo. All the others things might be true but I personally also don’t really care about those that much lol Except yeah Skyrim’s combat leaves a lot to be desired
     
  23. theagentcoma

    yeah good okay Supporter

    FFX
    Kingdom Hearts
    Pokemon
    Zelda

    I'm a couple hours into FFX and I can already tell I'm gonna love the characters.

    As for Pokemon, gen 2 is the last gen I played all the way through and it remains one of favorite videogames. RIP my OP Ampharos

    It’s kinds weird we have G/S as well as HG/SS. There’s no reason to play the originals because the remakes are so faithful yet so much better.

    Linear isn’t bad, I’d much rather have a linear, incredible story then a open world game that feels clunky and not very deep at times
