    Castlevania 2 and Zelda 2 (on NES) fit comfortably in that for me... I'm one of those weirdos that actually liked those games - though I could probably make a much longer list if I actually sat and thought about it.

    Pretty much all of the Harvest Moon and Rune Factory series. A lot of people thought the series got stale over time but I still love playing them every once in a while.
    I'm winding up my jack-in-the-box, but the only thing popping out is nuclear warfare.

    Mine would have to be Castlevania SotN. Whenever I can't figure out anything else to play that's my go to game. All modes too. I'm a big fan of the luck code and how it makes the game harder. I don't do the glitch to keep Alucard's equipment to keep some challenge. Overall the game is easy but that adds a little challenge to it at least until you get to the jewel knuckles.

    That game rules. Try using the Jewel Knuckles to farm the Iron ball for xp. Come from the right, crouch, hold your attack button.

    I really can't fathom anybody saying that New Vegas is better than anything. I can't play it for more than a minute or two at a time.


    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    Hah, I just downloaded that game yesterday, dude (*cough totally own it though what's up*); soon as that violin starts playing... slam down the necronomicon... ahhh scary freakin game. I didn't understand when I first played it, just how far-out it was for a game to make me feel that creeeeeped out... it really is a rarity; even Silent Hill can get a little 'oh shut up with the scary stuff I'm only here for the Katana', etc.

    Castlevania 64- who the hell takes some of those nerve-clenching arcade-semblant feats of action/adventure button-sequencing, for granted? Straight from the get-go you're jumpin vertically down a cliff-face with the camera flipping 180`degrees a second!

    ~~I guess my guilty pleasure would be emulating all these SNES, Genesis, even PSX-era games, in general; I'm on public, campus computers or at the public library, usually... I can't even stress how lame it is, though, not being able to play the games I REALLY want to play, just because I feel like thinking someone is watching or could see me getting choked up, would completely compromise my appreciation for those sentiments.
    At this point, it feels like half my life is on hang-up until I can actually get the cartridges/consoles, like I used to. That said, probly next time I have my own laptop I'm getting all my old games back, and grinnin' like a pigeon the whole dang time through em ALL, again~!
    Currently playing:
    ~~ Pokemon Emerald on VBA ~~ The Magic Candle on Dosbox ~~ Quest 64 on Project64 ~~ Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on ePSXe ~~ Breath of Fire III on ePSXe

    Rodea The Sky Soldier for Wii. I know the game is not very good, but there's something about it that I really like. Maybe the feeling of flying and the blue sky...

    Zelda 2 is another game I really enjoy. I don't see it as a bad game though.

    I like X-2 as well. But, I absolutely love X. I also absolutely adore this song.

    Jump Ultimate Stars in 3DS. Should've made this a fighting game but they didn't grab the chance.

    Maybe I'm unusual because I'm not guilty about the things I enjoy.

    I'd say the one game I have been shamed about enjoying is Star Wars: Episode I - Racer, mostly the version on PC - I've never picked up the N64 version, and while I'd say that the GBC version is better than a lot of licensed games in terms of fidelity to concept... this does not mean it's a "good" game. I don't enjoy most racing games. Need For Speed, etc, leave me cold; and while I want to like F-Zero, the only games in that series I've even been able to make progress in (let alone enjoy) are the original and the GBA games. I don't know what it is, but something about it being one of the first polygonal-3d games I played and the feeling of it makes me really enjoy the experience. The settings, the characters, the gameplay, it all just works for me and I really enjoy it; regardless of what anyone can say about Episode 1 and the Prequels as a whole.

    Otherwise, two games I'm unashamed to admit I enjoy are the "off-beat" Yu-Gi-Oh games on GBA - Dungeon Dice Monsters and Destiny Board Traveler. DDM is a very different take on YGO and DBT is a fun "party game"/"board game" take on the concept. Like the original manga, I prefer when Yu-Gi-Oh is more about "games" in general than Duel Monsters.
