Can’t believe metroid prime is 20 years old now. Damn.

Fuck. (And I remember Super Metroid.)

And all playable very nicely with the Dolphin emulator.

With an original controller hooked up and in HD. It’s the best

It is very nice. I found out that Twilight Princess has some crazy slow-downs due to a flaw in its design.

I still haven’t found a fast racer that feels as good/fast as F Zero GX. Any modern recommendations?

How about Fast RMX by Shin’en Multimedia?

Looks cool but I don’t have a switch!

There’s Super Pilot, but it’s still in development.

This looks interesting, I’ll keep my eye on it. Thanks!

It’s not a racer per se, but Thumper is cool (you play a beetle on steroids). And I also love Distance (you play a car which runs from a virus). Both pretty fast-paced games.

I own both of these and they are great fun. Thumper in particular gets my heart racing like no other game!

Let’s hope you don’t have a heart condition! :p

This is the only older system still hooked up at my house. The Gameboy Player attachment added all gameboy games through the Advance to the system’s library. Thanks to snes ports, a Collector’s Edition disc, etc, you could play every Nintendo Zelda game ever released at the time on it, up to and including Twilight Princess.

up to and including Twilight Princess.

And I believe the GC version of that game was the intended one, right? I think I remember that they tacked on Wii support later on.

Yup. And the wii version is a mirrored playthrough, compared to the Gamecube version. Link is typically left-handed. To make him right-handed for wiimote-users, the quickest solution was to flip the whole darn world about its y axis.

Would have been cooler to just force them to play left-handed.

Sure, or at least leave the original layout as a lefty option. Switch it up to your off-hand on the second playthrough for Hero Mode.

I remember having my game cube, a wavebird controller and a small 9 inch tv with handle.

It went everywhere with me. I would go to a friend’s house and plug it in in the corner of the room. With my wave bird controller there were no cords to worry about.

Those were good times! Nothing but gaming days on end.
