Silver Back Posted March 9, 2022 Report Share Posted March 9, 2022 Everybody gravitates towards games like Ninja Golf because of how crazy it sounds (not to mention it's exclusive to the 7800). Or games like Food Fight because it's a solid game that can't be found on many other consoles. Or they may be nostalgic for the games they grew up with, which was most likely stuff like Ms Pac-Man, Joust, Centipede, Dig Dug and more. But what games do you like that don't seem to get mentioned all that much? Or maybe they get mentioned but people seem to not give the game the respect it deserves. Let's discuss a few here, and I'll start with 2 that I really like. One on One Basketball has no right to feel as good as it does for being (essentially) a one button game. But I love the control in it, and when you have 2 players it can turn into a fun and competitive game. Especially in the winter months when we can't actually go out and shoot some hoops. I think most people don't like the sports games for the 7800, but this one just may surprise you if you haven't played it lately. My other hidden gem is known well by collectors, but I was surprised to find out not many people care for it. And that game is Water Ski! Froggo released utter crap and rehashed versions of games we already had for the 2600. And I do not like Tank Command at all. But I think they (most likely) accidently made something enjoyable in Water Ski. The controls just make sense to me, and it's extremely challenging, but not impossible. I don't think it's particularly pretty, but I do find it rewarding to learn and fun to play. But maybe it's just too frustrating for others. And given it's price, you'll probably want to emulate before you commit to a cartridge. So, do you agree with my choices, or should we shovel dirt on one or more of these games and keep them hidden? Or do you have a game that you like but doesn't get mentioned much in the community? Or mentioned for the wrong reasons? Let me know! Thanks guys!
