Suikoden II is in both the Best New School and Best Semi Old School categories...does it qualify for both?

Erdrick Holmes
12-12-2003, 11:42 PM
I think it does, I wouldn't know I never played it.

Now that I think about it, I should've nominated Zero Wing for Best Dialogue.

Ape Escape 2

WHATS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?! To nominate those games in that catorgory states "I DON'T HAVE A DAMN CLUE WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO GAMES"

I might let ape escape 2 go but I recall a lot of advertising and press for that game.

As you can see, you have all offended edczxcvbnm and his people. Take what you said back before he chases you with a spear and a giant shield.

Actualy kindom hearts and ratchet and clank did not sell very well on the first couple of months then sold alot when people heard they were great from word of mouth. well at least in the uk.

And if I am not mistaken that is the meaning of a sleeper title. not:

OH YOU PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS WHY DONT YOU LIKE *insert under advertised "under apprieciated" niche titles that only appeal to a small minority of people* INSTEAD OF CRAPPY EA AND CRAPPY POPULAR GAMES"

its the video game parralel to urakanian films and modern art. and usualy people who are so obsesive with that catagory of games furiously try to impose their beleives on the supposedly stupid world.

Give people a break. They dont come here to get shou- .... capital lettered at.

Skies of Arcadia Legends


The reason I nominated that game for 'Best Sleeper Hit' is because none of my avid game friends had never played it, I had never seen any advertising, or anything else promoting it, and since it's one great RPG I consider it a sleeper hit.

(And please don't go PMS'ing over what other people think are sleeper hits...If Joel didn't think it would apply to that category he wouldn't have posted them there.)

I like state of emergency damn it. If I were to impose my taste in games you would here me saying that is a great game and that everyone should play it(don't...state of emergency is a horribly flawed game and really isn't all that good).

I am just making a big deal out of it because I said this would happen in the previous thread. I am making the point it did happen.

And for the Skies of Arcadia game...it sold a fairly good amount for an RPG in the states(I think it broke 300,000...most likely I am greatly mistaken though) and it got stellar reviews on top of that. It had a good amount of advertising also(no commericals but loads of ads and press releases).

Erdrick Holmes
12-14-2003, 05:09 PM
I think a sleepr title is classified as a game that never was advertised much and was totally unnoticeable untill you actually go down to the store and buy the game.

12-14-2003, 05:30 PM
Yes, Unne is Shoeshine boy, not Sunshine boy.

Ah, the game I nominanated for sleeper hit didn't make edczxcvbnm mad, whew.

Erdrick Holmes
12-14-2003, 05:50 PM
Next time I do this (I dunno whether to make this annual or bi-annual) I might add the following catagories:

Best arcade game

Blunder of the year

Best title of XXXX (whatver year it will be)

Best video game hardware (like a light gun or a dancepad for DDR)

Best 2-D Fighter

Best 3-D fighter
