Retro Gaming Reviews

           The Super Nintendo is the second console I started with in retro gaming. I figured lets go back really really far to get started. One of the first games I played was Final Fantasy IV followed by Secret of Mana and Super Mario RPG. I had a lot of fun with this console and you can definitely tell the age of the console by the games on it and how they're designed. The games on Super Nintendo are a lot less rewarding for small tasks and a lot more strict for each of your failures. In some games choosing the wrong course of action can muck up your entire game. In other games they expect you to grind for hours just to be able to handle a new area. It can be really frustrating for gamers that aren't going into this console expecting such hardships or gamers whom need instant rewards/gratification.

           Games like Secret of Mana I could tell were designed very poorly, some mobs in the game can literally stun lock you from full health to dead almost no matter how good you are or your character is all because they didn't put in diminishing returns on stuns. Very small over sights like this can totally ruin what could have been a great game, like Secret of Mana. Then you have games like Dragon Quest which require so much grinding it can get a bit excessive. The newer Dragon Quests have eased up on this a lot, as do most newer RPGs in general... However with the older RPGs you're expect to no life grind pretty much every time you get to a new area.

           Aside from RPGs and Platformers, there isn't too much on the SNES. Considering the fact that I am not a platformer, aside from the RPGs I didn't really find much to play on the console. As such, you'll notice most of my reviews are RPG oriented.
