Hi all. I’ve been reading stuff on this site but just now decided to hop on the forum for whatever reason. I came here because Raeng and I started talking on the God Hand board on Gfaqs not long ago. It’s cool to see some familiar names here!
I started playing action games because of DMC1(generic, I know). Didn’t get into them more seriously until God Hand, which is now my favorite game in the genre. I tend to like a lot of different styles and takes on the genre and try to be as open minded as possible. I love a lot of the more popular stuff(DMC, NG, Bayo, Souls), but also games that either don’t get the same recognition, or don’t get lumped in these conversations, such as Doom 2016, Zone of the Enders 2, Wonderful 101, Genma Onimusha, and(I’m not just saying this because of the conversation earlier here!) The Evil Within.
I’m a huge fan of 2D action/platformers as well, such as Mega Man(classic and X), Classicvania, and Contra. Usually I stay away from RPG’s these days, mostly because I’ve lost interest and I don’t have the time I did when I was younger, but there’s some real standouts I still love, stuff like FFX and XIII trilogy, Kingdom Hearts 2, and Valkyrie Profile. I also really like pretty much anything Nintendo touched during the 90’s.
And as of right now, I’m digging deep into ZoE2 and taking a lot of notes. Also picking up Ace Combat 7 here in a couple days, and of course Resident Evil 2, which is another series I’ve always been a big fan of.
