Fair enough. Then with that, I'll cast my vote for Cave Story as well.

Cave story? Bad physics and retro graphics? What can we learn from that?

What does that have to do with anything? :P

I dunno, I never liked Cave Story. Same with "Out Of This World". The graphics were okay, but with such bad gameplay it's hard to enjoy imo. The way physics were handled in Cave Story was downright annoying, jumping just didn't feel natural...

And I never said I didn't vote Cave Story because of bad physics, I just mentioned that I think you can't really learn anything from that particular game, code-wise or graphic-wise...

[irrlevancy]OOTW was a great, great game...but everyone's entitled to their opinion.


Even if it's wrong.

I, for one, abhorred all of the 2d POP games and have no idea why the franchise became famous.[/irrelevancy]

When I press jump, the guy needs to jump, reactiveness of the buttons was really far, far, FAR below standard, at least on the SNES version, this just made it annoying...

I just remembered what game I wanted to propose!

What about Commander Keen? I think there's a lot to be said about the series. CK6 was fabulous graphically imo, especially player animations...

this voting system is becoming a popularity contest.

I think there is little reason to look at either Demon's Crest or Cave Story, the two just happened to catch some popularity in the nomination contest.

if you just make poll topics and then expect people to come out of nowhere to analyze them I dont think it will really work, the crit topics that have worked functioned because there were two or three experienced pixelers devoted to finding out underlying truths about the game.

this is about critique and analysis, not what has the greatest hype. I think these suggestion topic should focus on recruiting a few members who would like to take a deep look at a given game rather than just seeing what might catch on.

Agreed. Oh, and I call dibs on saying "I told you so" when Cave Story never picks up interest...
