@Tasuki fair play. As mentioned I dont use emulation / roms at all. Games are cheap entertainment and piracy does sully the industry.

Whats your favourite game on the snes mini taz?

A question thrown out to everyone here; what do yall think of the snes pad?

@themcnoisy That's like asking me which child is my favorite lol. It all depends on my mood. RPG it's Final Fantasy III, Platformer would have to be Mario World and racing would have to be F Zero. But if I have to choose it would have to be Zelda: ALttP.

In all I think they picked a great line up for the system.

So I finally got around to having a full on game on the snes mini last night.

I had a Megadrive / Amiga combo during the snes era so I dont have the nostalgia factor.

The old RPGs are terrible. Secret of Mana is appalling trying to play today. I understand back whenever it would have been great but its so hard to enjoy. Its probably the worst game on the system the story is shockingly bad. Megaman 10 which is equally rubbish. Contra is loads worse than I recall too.

On the plus side Zelda A link to the past is still awesome, Mario Kart still stacks up in the gameplay department and Im enjoying Yoshis Island alot more than when I played it on the N64.

My favourite game so far is Kirbys dream course. Ive learnt how to spin the ball to take out multiple enemies and its great fun. Very difficult but rewarding!

Been playing FF6 today, it's good. Secrets of Mana ain't that bad from what I've played. Problem is the text boxes arnt solid colour, it makes reading hard.

@kyleforrester87 Its the story more than anything. I understand it was ages ago but the writing / story is so bad. You fall off a log into a forrest, pulled a sword out near your village in clear site which no one ever felt to inform you was a bad idea. Next you are kicked out of the village to head to the ice palace to follow a stranger in armour.

I aint got time for that crap.

Alttp on the otherhand, has a weak story I suppose but its well told. You wake up in a dream, the rains smashing down and some wizard has gone crazy taking all the girls in the world. Zelda is calling you and the dads sorry for dragging Link into the situation, before giving Link the sword and passing him on the family special move.

Thats a way better opening and a much better game.

@themcnoisy I think you mean Mega Man X (as in the letter not the Roman numeral). As for Secret of Man I say give that one another chance when the PS4 gets a remaster next month. Keep in mind that Secret of Mana is the second game of a series. Even though the first one was released here it wasn't clear that Secret of Mana and that game was connected so I am sure that the story elements got lost when the connection was broken.

@YummyHappyPills @Tasuki Thats my Nintendo knowledge folks! I only got into Nintendo when I could afford to buy whatever consoles I wanted starting in the N64 / PS1 era. I thought the X represented 10 lol. Either way its not for me, the old nes ones are better and tbh I dont like them either.

Also some side notes;

I keep pressing y - but its not a y button thats where the x is arghhhh. Xbox indoctrination lol.

Im so used to sticks that Im struggling with a dpad on all things sf2. Crazy I know but that game would give you blisters over prolonged use. I used either a stick in the arcades or the sega 6 button pad which had an amazing d-pad.

I really want a sport game like iss or nba jam. The snes mini is really lacking in that department.

@themcnoisy It's not the best name given even Mega Man 7 used roman numerals! They dropped it at 8 though...obviously. But yeah, X is the character yet they refer to him as Mega Man a lot in the SNES games. No idea...why.

I find it kind of funny people have issues with the XYAB thing between Xbox and Nintendo. One did come first, but I guess one has been played by more people.

@YummyHappyPills I had the N64, Gamecube, Advance and DS so no idea why my brains now wired that way.

I blame runner 2 future of rhythm alien.

@themcnoisy So on that, one thing I've noticed thanks to the SNES controller...is that for 2D games I don't mind having jump be on A.

But if I use an Xbox (Rarely) or Sony controller...jump has to be X. I don't know why that is. I think it has to do with where my thumb naturally rests. It's weird.

But on 3DS, for something like Mega Man, I hate using A to jump and B to shoot. It feels like it should be B to Jump and Y to shoot, which mirrors PlayStation with X and Square.

But on SNES, with Mega Man X...I don't mind at all.

@themcnoisy @YummyHappyPills I am the exact opposite when it comes to the whole A,B,X, Y when it comes to Xbox and Nintendo I always mix up those buttons. Heck even on PS when someone says press X I have to think for awhile where X is on PS which is why I am not good at QTE games.

@Tasuki @themcnoisy I full on loathe QTEs because if I am playing on PC...the prompts will be for an Xbox controller.

But the SNES pad has an oddity I didnt realise until I held it. I always thought it was flat, because I had never seen one from the side before. Always from above instead.

But I will say it exceptionally comfortable to hold. More so than a Classic Controller

@YummyHappyPills Lol yeah it's amazing how uncomfortable the old NES box controllers are. Of course never realized that as a kid since we didn't have anything to compare it too. As for the SNES it's my second favorite controller right behind the Wavebird controller. The only thing I have a problem with the SNES controller is playing Street Fighter on it, I don't like having my attacks on the shoulder buttons. That's why I always preferred playing Street Fighter on the Genesis. Heck I even hate playing SF on the PS for the same reason which is why on PS I stuck with Tekken.

Speaking of PS that's probably why I like the PS controller over an Xbox one because it's similar to the SNES controllers almost like it evolved from it which it did due the Play Station collaboration between Sony and Nintendo.

@Tasuki Irsts weird isnt it? We dont think how much controllers impact things.

I thought, going on size, that the SNES pad would annoy me in the way the DS3 did. But its weird. Something about the shape makes it feel more comfortable.

But then you get certain games where button placement matters. Lord knows the old "Why is confirm on Circle" thing infamous.

But then I grew up playing games where X on a PS controller is jump. System dependan, like on SNES, Im fine with what is effectively Circle for jump.

But on a PS system...jumping with Circle would feel weird.

Heck Ive played games where Jump is set to...Triangle...

@YummyHappyPills Yeah I know what you mean. The weirdest button configuration I ever had to deal with was Mega Man Anniversary Collection on Gamecube,. My God was it bad. Some genuis when porting a the games over decided to swap the A and B buttos so a is to fire and b is to jump. My guess is the genuis saw the big green A button on the GameCube controller and figured since it stood out that must be the main action button.

I am sure you also know this but the symbols on the PS face buttons stand for something which is why older PS games buttons seemed off.

X was meant for a Not button like for selecting yes and no questions
Circle was meant for Yes
Square was to bring up menus and list (the square is meant to be a piece of paper)
Triangle was meant to be a viewpoint or camera controls hence the triangle shape.

Of course that was before the added the analog sticks.

@Tasuki Yeah I know that's why they did them. The same logic applies to A and B on Nintendo as well. A is confirm, B is back.

That sounds...downright bad on the Megaman Collection for Gamecube. Then again that layout was weird...

Been on the snes mini again and got way more into street fighter 2. I had forgotten how much fun it is. Due to the limited moveset timing is way more important, Ive just had a blast beating Dhalsim - Ryu - E Honda - Blanka - Guile and then got beat by Ken who is way more aggresive than I remember. It is video game magic and gets tense. This is only against the default difficulty ai too.

Also played super metroid and I totally see why its held in such high regard. The atmosphere is amazing for a 16 bit game. I do love Aliens the film and its a blatant rip off at times but its the best ripoff I know.

Ive only got castlevania, starfox w and Earthbound to go.

Bad games in this compilation so far Im unlikely to put on again;

Secret of mana
Ghouls and ghosts (Ive played a much better version of that on another console)
Megaman X
Contra 3

I would 100% be happy for those games to be swapped with Final Fight, Act Raiser, Sim City and Striker.

But as it stands 14 games I will defo play again with 3 still to go and Im glad Ive got one.

I love Axiom Verge so it should tick the boxes for me.
