  1. Aw man I really wanted to love ff8. To this day I have it even on switch but I just can't do it

  2. The way you talk about The Bouncer reminds why i like you so much, John. You have always a positive vibe even when you dislike something. I LOVE THAT! I really do. Especially in the internet world where people sounds always so negative and complain about everything.

  3. I dont want it to be ported to switch because the Wii U needs unique games and they already ported half or more of its library its enough already. They should just do another sequel because they already ported xenoblade wii it's time for a new one.

  4. I regret not getting a snes back in the day. I really enjoyed the Genesis but I’d have liked playing all the great jrpgs on Snes more. Also I wish I wasn’t thrash at fighting games. I love them to death but I’m barely beyond a button masher

  5. There was a 'superstar' reviewer here in the UK named Julian Rignall. He went to the US and is at U.S. Gamer now.
    He was a very skilful player and was the national champion at Defender (the Arcade Game).
    I gave his word a lot of weight. He said Turtles in Time and Super Castlevania IV were too easy so I didn't buy them.
    Two of the best games on the system and I didn't buy them because of him (or me?).
    I must admit, it still annoys me and I still refuse to read anything he says about video games.

  6. I love your thought on Assassin's Creed. That moment that took you out of it was the moment that brought me in, crazy! It's insightful too because now the series has a lot less to do with modern day than the past in game. So I'm sure they felt feedback over the years like yours.

  7. Have no regrets on Assassins Creed, they have so much filler in them that it feels like it wastes my time. And they release them so often I feel like i will never catch up to the series. I like to explore the full game so unless you blow through the story it takes forever to complete… Hopefully we can come into a quality over quantity transition with these long standing series, but as long as we keep buying them, they'll keep popping them out.

  8. 'This game haunts me' 

    a true gamer right here

  9. I suck at all fighting games in general. Mortal Kombat is actually the one i do a little better at times but in general am just horrible and end up button mashing in frustration.
    Still enjoy them a little but i also get bored of them fast. I just play threw their small story-line and abandon them really.
    I don't sit there practicing trying to become good against fighting game players.

  10. Jurassic Park for SNES followed by The Lost World for the PlayStation and WWF attitude.

  11. How do people pick Xenoblade X back up after a month or even a week of not playing? There's so much to that game I feel I'd forget how most things work if I'm not constantly relearning it all.

  12. 7:00 – Bouncer was great. Lol. You just have to get through the start of the game.

  13. I like this. There are so many AAA games that come out and I feel that a lot of people just pass on it because it's too much more of the same. There are also games that you're just expected to like but for whatever reason, you just can't get through it. There's so much of, "Oh this game is great just buy and play it because everyone else is." but not enough people talk about these things. Some games are objectively very good in their own right but just not for me.

  14. wierd way of saying i fcking dislike this games lol

  15. I remember playing xenoblade chronicles and arguing for 15 minutes I want to join the civil service and stay inside the city.

  16. One of mine is preordering Mafia 3 Deluxe Edition. Could have actually burned $80 in my yard and had a better experience.

  17. My regrets not being able to get into fallout new Vegas, i think it was the gfx that puts me off it but I don’t have any problems finishing fallout 3 or 4 again and again 🤷‍♂️

  18. As a fight game fan who plays competitively and has alot of knowledge of fighting games its fine, you do t have to tip toe around this one, the old MK games mechanically are terrible games when compared to Japanese fighters. But, ever since MK9 the series has made drastic improvements to its core gameplay, its still a b tier fighter in ny eyes, but its come along way. The story, gore and graphics is what kept the old games relevant.

  19. You didn't like the Animus in Assassin's Creed and I understand it Johnny, I kinda felt that way too
    but I kept playing, and I enjoyed all of them until Rogue, as I don't have PS4/XoneX
    and I'd really love to play Origins and Odyssey, those themes connect with me very very well !

  20. You should do like a top 10 or 20 "John Games" video. Would be really interesting.

  21. theres some really great RPGs out their but they are really too long you feel are not ready for them.

  22. I regret trying to wait for a wii when an aunt offer to help me pay for a xbox 360. My money got stolen before the wii was out so, I couldn't buy neither till 4 years later when I finally got a wii.

  23. Unpopular opinion: regret buying God of War 4.

    Also Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker.

  24. I love Assassins Creed! I only hate the Animus stuff. I do agree with that. That aspect of the game has diminished in the newer games luckily!🤠

  25. I am not a big Assassin's Creed player, but I want to say some of the spin-off ones like Valhalla and Odyssey do not have the sci-fi, DNA-based story elements. You are just in the past and that is it.

  26. Bought a NeoGeo on release early 90s, Magician Lord, Nam 75, Awesome! Then I bought Ninja Combat, $200.00, finished it first try.

  27. I usually just rushed through the present time parts of the Assassins Creed games. I only cared about the past time story. Did this until ACIII and then stopped playing the series.

  28. I gave away ALL of my stuff. NES, Genesis, PSX, Turbo Duo, to my mom so she could give it to families who really needed them. All of the games too. now I have a kid who's BIG into retro gaming. Go figure LOL

  29. Could not for the LIFE OF ME get into Yakuza like a dragon. The turn based RPG mechanics I just didn't like, the combat, the long cutscenes. But it got rave reviews!!! Which is why I picked it up. Those mechanics just any game like that I cant enjoy.

  30. My biggest regret was trading in all of my N64 games when I was around 4 years old to buy a VHS copy of Scooby Doo and the Cyber Chase… the only one I kept was DK64 because my child self thought that the yellow cartridge was really cool.

  31. My thing with Xenoblade X isn't that the combat is too complex, it's that it's just not really fun. The first game's gameplay systems all felt very gratifying and everything connected to something else in some way, whereas in X I just didn't really enjoy combat due the changes they made. The world was a blast to explore and I loved flying around in the Skell, but the game really needed a really fun gameplay system to tie it all together and it just didn't have that. Also, Jesus Christ, 150 hours in and he said he "hasn't even scratched the surface"? Maybe for 100%, sure, but just beating the story takes over 100 less hours than that, and that's even if you do a good amount of side content.

  32. You’re a good story teller, I enjoy your videos of you talking about stuff you went through whether it’s gaming with friends or falling off a skateboard rather than heat you review a random video game.

  33. My biggest regret… Is… A beloved one by most… Breath of the Wild… I got it, I tried it… but I didn't get into it… There was no moment where I was like "Yeah, I like it"… I really hoped, it would have been a game I don't regret buying… But that's just how it is.

  34. Assassin's Creed Valhalla is just an amazing 3rd person action adventure game. I'd actually prefer it was it's own game, like God of War, and not have the weird AC elements to it.

  35. He hated assassin's creed. 😲 And the bouncer 😢 how? WHY!? Wait, I haven't played those games either.

  36. I love Xenosaga, the first and second one are my favorites. 😁

  37. Assassins creed made me motion sick, I couldn’t even get through the first game. It’s such a shame because I know that the games are good. My sister played through all the earlier ones and she loved them. 😩

  38. You have such a cool channel! let's be friends;)

  39. I regret buying alot of Steam games a decade ago that I have no interest in. ( especially now since I have become a massive weeb )

  40. I definitely can not get into the Zelda series. It is not my thing, not rpg enough, I guess? Feels very very repetitive. The only one I like is Link to the Past, as it was the first game I ever played, but that's not the only reason I prefer it to all the other ones. I have not played the Link's Awakening remake or BotW, but I am very interested in those two and will try them for sure.

  41. mortal kombat is a bad game. Japanese FTGs are much better. you're definitely not alone in disliking the Mortal Kombat's approach to… combat. altho, I'd also add that personally, I hate the aesthetic of the game as well.

    I always wanted to love the Assassins Creed games, but they've always fell flat for me. The newer Hitman titles are what I expected of AC1, but unfortunately, I prefer the mechanics in AC to Hitman. The perfect game would be a combination of the two. The sci-fi element of AC wasn't as controversial for me, but I would've preferred it to stay in the past.

  42. I regret selling my Sega Genesis/Mega Drive with about 60 games for it, along with a Master System converter and an adaptor to play Japanese imports (I rather selfishly kept the adaptor and MS converter but sold the rest). It was hard to pick and choose which games to sell and which games to hold onto (I had about 75 games for it – the ones I kept, despite no longer being able to play, were birthday and Christmas presents – the rest could go to Hell). I needed the money in order to pay the rent for my house.

  43. My regret is passing up on the Dreamcast back in the day

  44. Man, just off the top of my head Persona 5. I put 70 plus hours into the game and made it to the last dungeon and stopped playing because I ended up getting a game over after like 2 or 3 hours of playtime without saving. I was so mad that it just made me stop playing it and I was like "I'll get to it later" and later never came. They need to port Royale to the switch so I can get redemption haha.

  45. They took the future part out of odyssey and vallhalla and made it more rpg. Origins was the beginning of adding in rpg elements. But not sure of they took out the future part. I had the same issue with assassins creed like you did. But I bought odyssey ultimate edition during a psn sale and man I'm loving it

  46. OMG!!! I've always wondered why you never talked about Mortal Kombat!! Mystery solved…

  47. It’s funny I’m in the exact same boat with Xenoblade, it’s literally been sitting dormant in my Wii U for 5 years, I’m so happy I’ll be able to play it again some day when I have a few hundred hours to spare
