Default Help Mr.Dragon decide what to review!

I've decided I've wanted to write reviews, but I've no idea what game I want to do first! I feel like it should be something I'm fairly familiar with, but the choices I've written for myself is still too long for a regular poll. SOOOO, I'm just going to write the choices on here myself, and tally whatever y'all say.

I think i'm going to use the same system as before, albeit probly a slower way of doing it. I'm going to do whichever has the highest votes first, second highest second, and so on until I run out of games form this initial list.

Resistance
Mortal Kombat (9)
Street Fighter IV
UMvC3
Dragon's Crown
Two Worlds II
Dead Island
Injustice
Darksiders
Eat Lead
Kingom Hearts 1
Watch Dogs
inFamous
Metal Gear Solid
Persona 4 Golden
Tearaway
Soul Sacrifice
Final Fantasy 9
Guacamelee
Shadow of the Colossus
Borderlands 2
LoZ Ocarina of Time
New Super Mario Bros 2 (3DS)

When I'm done, I have Iggy's permission to post reviews onto his site.

As your friend, I recommend Mortal Kombat (9).

Would love to see your thoughts on it in written word form.

That's fine, I usually add multiple votes per poll anyways.

Not reviewing it (quite yet) and just being a KH Fan in general, IT'S SO GOOD. The review however, might change?

It's Agent Purple, Dragon. He is best know for his vagueness.

I can understand wanting a little input from others on what to sit down and play when you've got a bunch of stuff that all appeals to you. I can get that, really.

What I can't get it why you need that same input on the subject of reviewing what you have played. Do you really need us to hold your hand that much? Why is it so incredibly difficult for you to just review what you've completed?

"Oh, I finished Batman: Arkham Anti-Smoking Campaign. Guess I should review it."

Boom, done, over with, decision made.

You have a list? Why ask our help to just go through it one game at a time and check them off? Are you afraid you'll upset the game gods or something and be cursed to play Desert Bus forever?

And once again, AP plays his role of going to the extreme.

The reason Dragon is asking for some assistance in this is because I told him that he may look at a game differently from start to finish while also looking things he could write in his review rather than simply playing for fun.

Why is it hand holding for someone to ask his fellow board members on what he should review?


Tone it back a bit Purple.

He can decide what to review himself regardless of how or why he played. It's not as if the knowledge of the game he'll accumulate while playing will magically disappear from his brain or anything.

I watch films. Know what happens after I watch them? I come here and review them without needing to rewatch them. Why can't Dragon do the same? He can play for fun and still get enough of an understanding to write a review, it's not exactly a Herculean effort.

You're right. I apologize. I've edited my previous post to reflect a demeanor less acidic than mine already was.n't

Oh, wait...

What's so wrong with someone asking for some input? Plus I know some people play a game fresh before writing a complete review on it. Why are you comparing how you do reviews, to how Dragon wants to proceed?

All you had to do was pick a game, and move on. Nope that's way to simple for Purple. Purple has to drum um something before he can move to the next cause.

Do you want to cut the shit out and let him answer my question for himself, or do you want to over-complicate matters?

I asked a question, I explained my reasoning for asking such, and I'm awaiting an answer. That's all I care about on the matter.

I'm his best friend and since I know he isn't available right now I'm trying to get answers. If you simply picked a game instead of making this matter more complicated (you did not I) by spouting some nonsense then we wouldn't be here at this point.

But again, nope that's way to easy for Purple. Gotta be vague then post a long post and pick apart something that isn't inherently there.

The answer to all that annoys you here is simple. Because I'd like the input of those around me, because if I just start a review of some random ass game that only I may know about, sure it might draw some attention to it on the rare reader. There is a target audience anyone needs to meet at first, and how better to reach that target than actual input from them?

There is no need to get angry here Purple, and there is no need to talk to others in the manner that you do.

Now with that said, do you actually have any input to my question, or are you just wasting time and effort to irritate others who may want to give their input?

Have a nice day

I wanted to know why you wanted our input, and you gave your reason. I'm not going to fabricate some motivation as to why I disagree with your reason, because I don't.

But thank you for your answer, and thank you, Iggy, for allowing us all to past these old-married-couple bickerings. Enjoy your game.

If it's acceptable to both of you, I'd like to bury the hatchet and put this exercise in embarrassment behind me. I'll admit that it was rude of me to act as I did, but if you're willing to forgive, I'd like to forget.

I guess I'll vote for New Super Mario Bros DS. One of the very few games on the list I'm likely to ever play, and something I was actually considering getting for my son's DS, but wondered if it was worth bothering if we already had the Wii version.

My apologies Mister Ed, I meant "New" Super Mario Bros 2 for the 3DS, I corrected myself.
