Due to recent events, I find myself having to reevaluate what I would consider to be my personal top-ten list of all video games ever made of all time. It's now probably something like

10. [PSX] Breath of Fire III
9. [SNES] Final Fantasy III (rename of VI--the one with Kefka in it)
8. [PSX] Star Ocean: The Second Story
7. [NGC] Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
6. [GBA] Mother 3
5. [GB] Pokemon: Gold/Silver Version
4. [PC] The Longest Journey
3. [N64] Super Mario 64
2. [PC] Hatoful Boyfriend
1. [NDS] Retro Game Challenge

You have no idea how close it was. I'm still a bit torn, honestly.

I'm reminded of how the original Mark Kart solved this:

1) RGC
1) Hatoful
3) SM64


Sounds fair enough.

I just want to point out, for everyone else reading this thread, that I called an indie one- or two-person (if you count the translator) visual novel someone randomly put together with Famous Writer and stock bird photos the second-greatest game ever made. I placed it above industry-changing titles that have the combination of undeniable legacy (to the point where they would be teaching about these games if there were a such thing as video game history in school) and my personally loving them just as much as the populace at large did. I said it was better than Mario 64. And the first person here to notice and question its #2 of all time position did so so because he couldn't understand why I didn't have it at #1.

As Angie Gallant would say, this game.

You left out the part where the game was originally conceived entirely as an April Fool's joke. It is that good, folks.

Just to justify why I questioned it's silver medal status: When a game amazes you so much that you find yourself apologizing for how often you use the word "incredible" to describe it, as Kj did, that's saying something pretty...well...incredible. :b


On a side note, last night I was testing 2 things in relation to Hatoful:
1) Is it possible to speed through BBL by leaving the fast-forward on before it gets taken away. Answer: Yes, but why would you?

2) Are the rumors of a different ending to BBL if you play through it a second time true? Answer: Nope.


...Oh, BTW, quick question: You remember that scene in Okosan's route where he and Sakuya get into an argument, and you're given the choice of scolding one or the other? ...Did you ever try the option for scolding both of them? It's fairly amusing. Found that out last night as well completely by accident.

I think the rumors of the different BBL ending are because there is a normal/extended BBL ending split (much like the three extended ending splits in the otome route.) That post-credits epilogue, the one that starts with Sakua shouting "Madness?" Turns out that you can do BBL as long as you have at least one ending for everybirdy (that is, you don't need the normal and extended ones for the three that have them, just one or the other) but BBL extended requires everything. Which we had, fortunately.

And ... I'll have to see that sometime! Edit: Well, that was awesome.

It's a rare day when two birds go through a window and neither one of them is Anghel. (Then again, it was open....)

Okosan would do so well in Star Ocean.
But the private actions would be a little weird.

I'm sure you've explained all of these at various times, but I really would like to hear your explanation of why these games are on your list.

On another note, I personally don't know if I could assemble one... I have a terrible time picking favourites out of the myriad of wonderful gaming experiences I've had.
