I wish I never had to be bothered with work stuff. Alas, that rarely happens. [I'll be complaining about not having enough to do about 10 minutes after retirement. ]
I was never much of a Super Mario fan, though I did add a few Mario games to RetroPie on my Raspberry Pi gaming system. I kind of skipped over Nintendo when I was younger, having gotten burned out on the Atari 2600 and then getting back into gaming a little with the SNES in the early/mid 90s. I'm more of an RPG fan.
I've played the original Super Mario, though. It was fun. I just didn't get "addicted" to it like some did. Final Fantasy IV (originally II in the US), though? Now that I could play for hours on end.
@GabeU I'm a fan of Final Fantasy myself and have been playing through a lot of them in preparation for the VII Remake. Currently playing through VI again, which is my persoanl favorite of them all. Lots of people have been recommending Chrono Trigger for years claiming it is the best RPG of all time and remains the best to this day. Have you ever checked it out?
I have Chrono Trigger on my Raspberry Pi, but I haven't tried it as of yet. I, too, saw that it was highly rated and recommended, so it's one of the ones I made sure to get while the "getting" was still easy.
I have FFVI on my system as well, but I haven't gone any further than looking at the very beginning of it. I had a friend who got it back in the 90s and he loved it. The whole "original US release title" and subsequent release thing makes it difficult to know exactly what you're getting when you find the ROMS of those two FF games. Luckily, I was able to find the right ones.
Another FF fan!
I'm going to be waiting for the FF8 remake.
That's fine LOL
But wait... what they're releasing now is only PART ONE?!
I guess I can look forward to settling down with the FF8 remake when I'm retired hahaha
..............welp. Guess I'll just play Animal Crossing til I die.
