    I didn’t play a lot of SNES growing up, as I was focusing a lot on PC gaming at that time, so there are a lot of games on the list that I have never played.
    I have played Super Mario Kart though. I remember playing it at my friend’s place when they rented itand we spent more time in battle-mode than on the races.
    I also played Street Fighter 2 a little and had fun with it but lost more than I ever won.

    I would have liked to have heard some reasons other than just a list of games. Overall variety? The controller? Anything else about the system as a whole?

    I don’t think I’d buy a game if that was the case. Didn’t we go through this with Microsoft and the Xbox One a few years ago? I love the Battlefront series but they’re putting the fear of no single player in the new one, but I don’t know for sure if that means just no campaign like the first (which is fine) or no single-player at all.

    CHRIS CHRISTIE’S CONSTITUENTS WANT HIM TO STAY – Yeah and if I get fired from a job it’s only because every employee wanted to have an affair with me because I’m just too damn sexy.

    CRACKDOWN 3 ENVIRONMENTS – You know what other game has 100% destructible environments? Minecraft. Making things like this only available online is like reverse marketing. Here’s amazing features that no one wants but you don’t have any choice accept to thanks to us. Don’t want to thank us? HOW DARE YOU TURN ON US! You were supposed to be our fans, there to support us! It’s YOUR fault!

    PROJECTOR COST COMPARISON – There are sports cars out there that cost more than my house. I can’t live in my car. What the shit is that pricing all about? Sports cars don’t have bathrooms!

    “Who cares about parental controls? No one.” – Including me… and I say that as a parent. I control my own parental-ing, not my game console. Besides, if I was that good at being a parent my kids would be learning an instrument or another language or something more important than playing video games. ;)
