    Not anymore. DQXI-S is the new king. DQV can gracefully retire. DQV is now walking into the sunset and giving one last wave goodbye as the band plays an emotional farewell song.



    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    Hold up. Mario Kart: Double Dash is the pinnacle of the series honestly. The best balanced characters, items, and craziness without being too rubberband a-la SNES or Wii, and without the game aging like complete crap a la Mario Kart 64. (Seriously, go play it, it's not good anymore.)

    Virtual Bart is complete trash as a game. Konami Simpsons arcade game is the pinnacle, and really the only playable Simpsons game next to maybe Hit and Run.

    And Castlevania: Rondo of Blood is just far, far better than any other game in the franchise, including Super Castlevania IV. Hidden levels, kickass music, great motifs, epic boss fight, more epic sequel that makes the first game even cooler with more lore. Super Castlevania IV barely has character design.

    My more controversial picks:

    Best Smash Bros game: - Super Smash Bros 64 - Check out the 19XXTE hack of Smash Bros 64 that adds the extra inaccessible levels from the original. Honestly, it's the best Smash Bros game because it's the most balanced. Gameplay feels the tightest. Can't say the same for any of the sequels.
    Best Street Fighter game: Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike - Again, tightest gameplay, even if most people didn't know any of the characters.
    Best Mega Man game: Mega Man V (Game Boy) - The only Mega Man game I've been able to play through the entire way through and not get frustrated and abandon because of difficulty.

    Also, can you really call it best game in the franchise if only one game is good? NiGHTS, Strider, Shenmue, these are hardly series as we know them, with either such little variation, or the subsequent games are exactly the same or remakes.

    Surprised no one has said in this thread yet that Streets of Rage 1 is better than 2. I'm personally not in that camp, but I know they exist on this forum. 2 is still the best by far though. 1st game's hit detection is seriously off, especially for the Blaze clone twin bosses outside of Mr. X's door.

    I would love to see a "Best Platformer, best racing game, best 2D fighting game, best 3D fighting game, etc." thread, that would be even more interesting as far as opinions go.

    I left Streets of Rage off my list because I honestly don't know which one is my favorite. I went through them all last year, and I like them all a lot, although I will admit that I like the first one so much because of nostalgia and that the second one is the best of the series.

    I actually agree with this. I usually write off comments like this as “Well... that’s just the first one you played, and therefore the most nostalgic about.” But I played Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64 a LOT when each of them was the new hotness, and Double Dash is still my favorite.

    The dual-rider mechanic doesn’t add a LOT to the game, but what it does add is a lot more personality. I’d rather stare at a full-bodied animated character on the back of a go kart than just the back of his or her head for 3-5 minutes at a time. Plus their animations are pretty amusing.

    But more importantly, I really like the selection of tracks and characters. I don’t think any Mario Kart game has nearly the same amount of memorable, NON-GIMMICKY courses. Mushroom Bridge and Wario Stadium are both two of my favorites in the entire series.

    The arcade game is not good and vastly overrated. Poorly designed and way too difficult.

    The Japanese version of Simpson's arcade is a bit better balanced than the US version. Of course Konami loved money back then, as did a lot of other arcade companies,so beat em ups usually sucked you dry of quarters. But the games made by others for the home console for the Simpsons were poorly made. I think if Konami had the license to do Simpsons games for the home consoles back then, we'd have seen better games for the series.


    Nothing on the NES, Gameboy, Genesis, nor SNES for the Simpson's were very good at all.

    Double Dash is the 2nd worst Mario Kart right behind MKWii. Y'all are nuts. Best is MK8 and it's not even my fave.

    Fascist confirmed.

    You're stepping into fighting territory now man!

    And Sorry but Dragon Quest V is still superior to XI "S" but I give credit where it's due that XI 'S" is an amazing RPG in it's own right.

    I wasn’t a big fan of either the N64 Mario Kart or Double Dash, though I might like them more now, than I did back then.

    I'd take Nightmare and Virtual over the arcade game any day. Maybe Space Mutants and Krusty's Fun House as well.
