That old Mega Man 9 review is half good and half bad.

Nick Evil's "Ocarina of Time" review is one of my favorite reviews for that game.

I also recommend Winston Wolf's review for Pong (Arcade).


I've found a couple more I personally thought are interesting reviews, though both are barely a few months over 5 years old, if that's okay:

JV's Mega Man 9 review - Has two interesting perspectives about the game.

WQ's Mother review - Dunno how you'll react to reading this one, but I thought it was an interesting angle about the game and a certain other subject.

Hey, someone else recommend stuff!

Ok! I went with Pickhut's nomination this time. Great choice, thanks for pointing it out to me. Anyone else, feel free to name any review you like in this topic. Thanks!

I have Dust: An Elysian Tale on my Steam library. Were I not already occupied trying to get my October material together, I'd probably hit that up next and review it here.

I'm totally reading that review whenever you finish it, Suskie. I played it with a friend from work once and wasn't too thrilled, so it'll be fun to read what you say about it.

Could have sworn Genj did a cool Bebe's kids review years ago...and, holy shit, where's all the Genj stuff gone?!

I totally forgot about the rating scale at the end of staff reviews! Now I'm trying to figure out when it disappeared...

I'm flattered by the mention, by the way, but the review is barely under four years old, which disqualifies it.

And if I were to suggest a review...

Zig's Sword of Sodan review makes me miss the score breakdown that used to lie at the end of reviews. It was such a fitting end to see that gigantic 3 with "Watch out for bad game" next to it.

You know what I hate? I was thisclose to deciding to say "fuck it" and ditch my attempt at SNES Tactics Ogre.

But now I know I will see it through...

Also could probably do SNES Super Tecmo NBA (played the NES a TON, so it wouldn't take a great deal of time to figure out how this game is in comparison) and Sega CD Sol-Feace. Maybe a couple others...I might have missed a few due to outright sobbing when I saw Tactics Ogre is a wanted review.

I know RotW is gone but it does look sad that the featured reviews stopped at the end of last year.

I sadly never owned a copy of that Power Rangers game on Super Nintendo, but I did waste a lot of Saturdays at my friend's place with that. I later learned it was a bad game. Wish there was some way for me to play it now.

Curious what content you might review with the best results? Looks like those games are:

Gokuraku Jan Premium (PS2)
Babel (TurboGrafx-16)
Dust: An Elysian Tale (PC)
Carmageddon 64 (N64)
InFAMOUS: First Light (PS4)
AV Tanjou (TurboGrafx-16)
Avenger (TurboGrafx-16)
Tecmo Super NBA Basketball (Super Nintendo)
Uncharted Waters: New Horizons (Super Nintendo)
Pilot Down: Behind Enemy Lines (Xbox)
The Great Waldo Search (Super Nintendo)
Kidou Senkan Nadesico: Nadesico the Mission (Dreamcast)
Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together (Super Nintendo)
Soldiers of Fortune (Super Nintendo)
Net Versus Renju Gomoku Narabe (Dreamcast)
Super Troll Islands (Super Nintendo)
Sol-Feace (Sega CD)
Marionette Company 2 Chu! (Dreamcast)
Speedy Gonzalez (Super Nintendo)
Dennis the Menace (Super Nintendo)
SeaQuest DSV (Super Nintendo)
Kendo Rage (Super Nintendo)
Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure (Super Nintendo)
Bebe's Kids (Super Nintendo)
Alien vs. Predator (Super Nintendo)
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition (Super Nintendo)

The above 26 titles are the ones that spurred the most traffic to the site, without a review already being available. They averaged 1 or more hit per day, which suggests that there is little enough competition in search results to allow related content to perform well (particularly for the titles closer to the top of the list).

I just thought you might all appreciate a glimpse at the sort of games people are sometimes looking to read about when they wind up at HonestGamers.

At the moment, Zigfried's review for Sword of Sodan comes to mind. It's so old that it doesn't have a date on it.

The first review, which I just posted to FB and G+, is Falsehead's 2004 review of Virtual Hydlide. The writing isn't perfect, but it's goofy and entertaining while still being informative about what makes that game so strange and interesting.

I'm looking for an entertainment factor, not that everything has to be goofy or extreme like this one, but candidates should have some kind of amusing or very interesting content. But, like I said before, I'll read anything that's posted here and consider it.

Thanks guys!

Hey folks. As you know, I'm a relative newcomer to Honest Gamers. One of the things that I love about this site is the sheer number of reviews available. I decided to start going through those that have stuck out to me and writing why I think they're interesting in posts to Facebook and Google+. I almost backed off this idea since we have the random review box on the home page now, but I think this should still serve as a nice addition.

This thread is an invitation for anyone who wants to to nominate reviews you think deserve to be mentioned. This isn't a voting thing, but I will definitely read everyone's suggestions.

The only requirement is that the review be at least five years old. I'm looking for reviews that have good writing, sure, but are interesting in some other way. An obscure game, a different writing angle, etc. I plan to post these at least once every weekend, but I'm open to doing more, especially if I get a lot of good suggestions.

Not happening, sadly. Got a surprise long shift at work today. That doesn't mean that I won't still write a PlayStation All-Stars bash in the near future, though, no sir.

Could have finished mine ages ago, but set it up last second out of a sense of tradition.

I can definitely understand time constraints making it difficult to write. I got mine in early because I started a new job 2 weeks ago and I've been exhausted a lot of the time since then. Definitely would not have written it if I'd left it until now.

When posting, please keep the guidelines outlined in the forum help file in mind at all times. Disruptive posts will not be tolerated. Let's all try to have a good time and keep things civil.
