Yeah, I know...Wii's are great and PS3's are SO popular, but I've gotta say. Nothing Beats the Super Nintendo! Nothing like some good Super Mario or Donkey Kong.

Pfft Super Nintendo. It's all about the NES and DOS.

Yes, I'm serious. :P

You're also insane Pat, I however, am perfectly normal. Yep SNES was and is the bomb diggity. I've got one sitting at home with Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals stuck in it. Tons of great games for the snes. I almost exclusively play RPGS and SRPGS though so some of those adventure games passed me by...

It's true, the SNES is the bomb. I have an emulator for it, along with about 500 ROMs. Currently I'm playing Super Robot Wars 3 (a Gundam tactical game), which I don't think was ever released in the US.

I do still have my SNES system, though. And my Sega Genesis.

Did you ever see the handheld emulator player they have at ThinkGeek? I'm hoping to get one for Xmas:

Holy Cow, SNES had some of the best RPGs ever! Although NES had a few good ones, Sega was fabulous with platforms - however, sword of vermillion and Dark Wizard (Sega CD) have to be some of the best games I've ever played ever! Playstation 1 actually had same dang good RPGs, I wish I could find a certain game for under 120$,

that reminds me, I've got to get back to learning rhodrics daytime habits,
buh bye!

learning rhodric's daytime habits...wwaaaaht?

I humbly apologize Xin and Julie. I just found a gray hair, would it be kosher to say he's a fantastic older gentleman? (kind of like MA but without the 18 year olds)

*lmao*

Yeah, don't call people old. That ain't nice. Just because you have a few grey hairs does not mean you're "old." My sister has a few and she's 29, for crying out loud!

Well no, it doesn't mean you're old. Was hoping it meant you're wise though. *puts on spectacles and strokes mustache*

My brother is 28 and I just pulled a gray hair off his head the other day. I call him old all the time :D

Ouch.

I'll have you know that I've been finding grey hairs since I was twelve and still collecting Atari 2600 carts. Ya whippersnapper.
