Hey! Welcome to my games section. It's not exactly a formative, walkthru-containing site. It just about games I like and stuff. I like, of all the systems, Nintendo 64. (i'm not a playstation fan) But i also liked the other, older nintendos. My all-time favorite game would be Chrono Trigger. And don't forget to sign my guestbook at the middle of the page!

In Chrono Trigger you are Crono. You and a group of friends from many different time periods are on a mission to save the world. Along the way you fight many bosses, meet many characters (friends and foes alike), solve numerous puzzles, and just have fun. This is one of Squaresoft's best.
This game has great playability. The moment you turn it on you can choose your difficulty from ACTIVE or WAIT. The battle control layout can be learned in a snap. After a character in your party is ready to fight, choose their name and choose if they'll attack, use a tech, or use an item. (NOTE: You can only have 3 party members in battle at a time) The easy battles, the characters, and the story are just three factors that make this a very fun and exciting game.
For a 16-bit game, Chrono Trigger really shines in the audio/video department. The graphics are beautifully colored, the characters are large, and the slightest detail is not spared. When the cinema sequences occur, you can tell that a lot of effort was put into this game's graphics. The music is absolutely amazing. Each character has their own theme, fitting them perfectly. In some places the music is quite cheerful, and in others it is dark and moody. The music in this game is so good, it was released on a 3-CD set in Japan.
This game has so much replayability. It's fun to go through and see what you missed, and there are approximately 16 endings! The game takes about 15-25 hours on the first time through, and when you get the New Game + option that time is cut drastically.
Since this is one of Squaresoft's best games (and probably their best for the SNES), it is definetely worth buying. If you don't like RPGs, rent it first. If you like/love RPGs, buy it now! This game is $50 or more.

One of my many favorites, would have to be Goldeneye. I had a part-time obsession with this game, and I know every single move, secret, locations of stuff, that there is. I beat the game a while ago, and I definitely recommend at least renting this game, as it was the best game of 1998!
Setting - The game is based upon the movie of the same name. It takes place in Russia during the cold war. All in all it is a great story line and the setting is excellent.
Gameplay - Many first person shooters these days really don't focuse much on gameplay and try to become the best looking. Goldeneye has success in both areas. First of all the one-player levels are truly revolutionary. You can't just jump into a room full of bad guys and expect to survive. In most cases if you try that tactic you will die. Instead of the usual find the key to open the door tasks, Goldeneye has set objectives which change depending upon the difficulty setting. In some cases you have to recover evidence, in others you must destroy evidence or take a picture of a certain object. Most of these objectives aren't a piece of cake either. In fact many of the objectives are harder than you may believe. All in all the gameplay of Goldeneye is very exceptional and the game plays very well.
Graphics - Here is another area where the game shines. Everything in the game has a very realistic look, right down to the explosions (which are fantastic) to the looks on the guards faces. Each level has a different look and you will never get sick of the game's textures. Instead of the muddy brown look that most games of this genre have, Goldeneye pleases the eye with every object in the game. Everything looks so realistic it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between the game and real life. There isn't a fog problem at all in the game, which troubles other games of this genre. I have three words on this matter - the graphics please.
Sound - The music in the game is very bond-like and you will notice some familiar bond themes in the game. You will never find the music distract the gameplay, in fact, the music adds to the overall experience. The sound effects are equally cool. You'll here the reloading of rifles, shells hitting the ground, bodys hitting the ground, doors opening, and most importantly things exploding. The sound in the game does not disappoint.
Replay - The replay in this game is trully where the game shines. First of all the multiplayer game is the coolest I have ever seen in ANY game! There is a lot of different variations than just straight deathmatch, and each one is cool in its own way. This is THE game for multiplayer on any system. There are so many options to choose from I guarantee that each match you play will be different from the next. As far as the one-player mode goes, that has plenty of replay also. With three different difficulty settings, and codes that must be earned through defeating the level in a set time limit, I guarantee you will be going back for more.
Overall - The game is great period. If you have a Nintendo 64 get this game, it is just plain great. If you don't have a Nintendo 64 console this is a potential reason to buy the system. The game pleases in every aspect, from multiplayer, to single player the game in and of itself is a real treat. Snatch it up while you can.
Zelda: Ocarina of Time
See a Zelda64 Movie!
And Last but of course not least is Zelda 5: Ocarina of Time. The game just has to be among the best of the best. It just has everything.
The Graphics are amazing and show off the true power of the N64. I rarely come across any glitches and the cinemas are a treat to watch! The sound is okay, flows with the story line easy and let's you feel the mood. The cool part is when it turns from night to day that is a treat. I am so amazed at how Zelda is so LONG. It will take you an average of about 40 hours to beat it, but that's not including getting all the weapons, gold skulltulas, etc. The story is great and the Z-targeting feature is perfect! The Z-targeting lets you lock on to an enemy then strike it when it's weak or not protected.
The thing that makes Zelda stick out is the great storyline. I have always enjoyed the long running Zelda series but this one just has one of the coolest storys ever. The ocarina of time plays a major role in the game which is also very useful in certain parts of the Game.
The puzzles and Areas of Z64 are wonderful. The game certainly has a challenge something that may seem new to Nintendo 64 owners. This isn't one of those games in which you play once and then throw in it the corner. Zelda keeps you coming back for more and more and more. The temples and dungeons are well mapped and large. The average temple will take about 1hour and a half to 2 hours to complete, although some can be finished quickly. The game features no shortage of bosses. Ranging from some of the old-school baddies (e.g. Gohma) and some of the newer baddies (e.g. Phantom Ganon).
The control in the game is perfect. The battle system is flawless, although it can be a bit cluttered when the camera angle goes crazy. The Z-targeting is an outstanding feature and really helps the game flow. The camera angles are the only downside of the game. For example when you fight your shadow in the Water Temple. If you can't see behind you your out of luck because he just jumped on you and sliced you with his sword.
The items in the game make this an adventure! Ranging from the classic boomarang to grappling with the hook shot and long shot. Some of the newer items include the bombchu, deku nuts, deku sticks, and the lens of truth. One of the toughest parts in the game is when you are in a temple and you think you have the item to solve the puzzle...Wrong! Getting adapted to the item switch can be hard. Young Link and Old Link use different items. Some items can be used when you are both young and old, but some items have the same use such as that slingshot (young link) and the bow and arrow (old link).
Zelda 64 is without a doubt among the Best Nintendo 64 game to date. It should be in any collector's libaray and if you got the Gold Cart congrats to you. You may be lucky and stumple across a used one. Zelda has many things to do including some fun side quests and activities. The story is one of the best in the series. By all means have Zelda.
Phew! Well those have to be my three favorite games.
