It's hard to remember now, but I think I'd never got to see the final round of Outrun 2 yet, even on the easy path. So I still had to finish that before considering more really.
Maybe you don't remember but when this game came out it was like WOW. The game was fast! A speed button is exactly what we wanted, after playing those sludgy arcade games like Kung Fu. It was cutting edge technology. Now you're playing with power.I've finished Super Mario Bros on my Pandora this morning.
I'm still not a fan of the movement in that game, but I've got to say that the level design is really nice (though the latter castles could do without the "puzzles").
There's quite a difficulty spike in the last worlds and it gets a bit frustrating but generally speaking it's a good game that deserves its reputation.
I've got a little chinese dongle that plugs into my wii video port and gives me HDMI out. The TV recognises the signal as 720p I think, and it looks relatively sharp to my old eyes, but I can't guarantee what kind of upsampling its doing (if it is; it may be telling the wii to output in component format, I think the wii can handle, and even my old gamecube games look sharp).Skyward sword on wii is the one Zelda game I started but did not complete. I got stuck on they giant worm in the pit, then I got an HD TV and the experience was ruined.
One day I would like to get a small TV that Wii looks good on. I love this console.
You could also play the first SpecOps game. The last missions were set in Afghanistan, the first one had you fight with the mujahidins against the anti-mujahidins and the next had you side with the anti-mujahidin against the mujahidins (while still playing the same character). I remember that prompted me to look at who all these people are and realise how much of a clusterfuck Afghanistan was.I played Metal Gear Solid V to illustrate the Afghan situation to my daughter.
