Guess the Game - Nintendo fans and the power of selective memory

Ron Duwell

During the early days of gaming websites, I can’t count the number of times I saw a certain game appear on “Games that need a sequel list.” I can’t tell you the title because it is ironically a sequel to our Guess the Game selection today, and it will give away the answer! Let’s just say stars it stars a young angel by the name of Pit, and we’ll leave it at that. This original 1986...

Ever since I hijacked this segment from Joey earlier this year, I’ve been using it as an excuse to wax nostalgic about my favorite JRPGs with the occasional shift from the genre admittedly done out of both guilt and fatigue. However, it’s these old JRPGs that seem to be more popular with our readerbase and garner the most traffic and enthusiasm. I’m wondering if “Guess the JRPG” would...

Today’s Guess the Game just saw a new release in its overarching franchise this past week, and as I crawl through it at a snail’s pace, I am sorely reminded about the reputation of both today’s Guess the Game and the series it belongs to.

I understand that reboots are all the rage these days, because, on a whole, this generation would rather experience old things through new eyes than go back and bask in the genuine originals, but this is one case in which I can actually get behind the idea of a reboot because of...

You’d be hard pressed to find a more beautiful game than today’s choice for Guess the Game, although No Man’s Sky looks to stand a chance if we ever get to play it. This 1999 Squaresoft PlayStation hit brought a fan-favorite series back to the forefront in full-blazing color with some of the most gorgeous sprites and world design ever seen in a video game. Just pour through those...

Guess the Game - Squaresoft's challenge to Nintendo and the Ocarina of Time

Ron Duwell

By 1998, Squaresoft was rolling in the cash generated by Final Fantasy VII and essentially became the most powerful third-party developer in the world. The genuine and supreme EA/Activision/Ubisoft of its day. The only difference between the powers-that-be in the modern world and those back then was that the budget of video games in general remained relatively small. Squaresoft could...
