    Started Final Fantasy III a few months ago, but GTAV got in the way. Starting to burn out on online play a bit, so once I finish up the platinum trophy I'll probably return to FFIII before hopping into another current-gen game.

    Considering I have 44(!) current-gen titles that I own and need to get to, it seems laughable to churn away at a brutally outdated NES game on an emulator... but that's what crossing 'em off the list is all about!

    I absolutely can relate to this. I'm actually on the fence about buying Skyrim Legendary edition from Amazon @ 24.99 because I won't even have the time to get to it until next year.

    It's on lightning deal right now for $19.99, if that $5 makes a difference, haha.

    That's the tricky thing about game collecting. I try to never spend more than $15 on a game that I know is just going to gather dust in my "to-play" list. In many cases this works out fine as mass produced games stay consistent or fall in price over time. But there are a couple of titles that I didn't grab in the $20 range that are now hard to get, and can't be had for under $50.

    A game like Skyrim I think you'd be fine waiting on. Gotta guess the market!

    I'd never played an RPG before until FF7, and it blew my mind and changed gaming for me forever. JRPGs are far and away my favorite type of game.

    Really bummed I wasn't exposed to the genre earlier like you were... SNES classics like Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasys, etc. were all missed by me, and while I hope to get to all of them eventually, nothing beats experiencing games like that as a kid.

    I'm sure I'll get to all of them VERY soon.

    Zelda 2 update:

    3 hours in. Absolute torture. I now remember why I never beat this game. Insane difficulty and the grinding involved in leveling up is soul-crushing.

    I must trudge on.

    That's the side-scrolling one, right? Terrible.

    Yes. I have no idea what they were going for with this sequel.

    Torture.

    I remember Contra & Ghosts and Goblins being hard as hell to pass.

    Damn you Ghosts and Goblins for ruining my already low self esteem!

    Maybe I should give it a go one of these days.

    Yeah, most NES games were difficult for their time and damn near impossible for the current generation of gamers but Contra is definitely beatable. I've never met a person that actually beat Ghost & Goblins. I've only seen it done on YouTube.
