    Great article! It's weird to think of Cloud as a "classic game character".

    I also applaud the T-Dar reference.

    Luigi rocks. Snake rocks. And Batman should be eternally stern.

    How is the new Rygar considered "Goku'd up"?! How is Goku not the image pf manliness?

    The old ones usually show a more economic and thoughtful design than the newer ones. This is why I prefer them. And the Megaman one is purely mis-leading: those games are marketed by CAPCOM and the press (including GR itself) as retro, 8-bit, return to the past games, not current iterations.

    It's reassuring to see how little preference was made to the old and new (as far as I see). haha! Megaman hasn't changed at all, but Batman on the other hand... Damn! That's as good as he'll ever look. Seeing Mario, Zelda, Samus as they were from the start seems fatalistic to me since I'm recently playing those first games and seeing how it all started.

    This is just the kind of games "journalism" that aging man-boys like me just eat up. The screen grabs were perfect, the observations spot-on, and the T-Dar reference way core. Love ya!

    What no Rayman? I love that guy.

    I thought Ganondorf's beard in TP made him look Irish or Scottish xD I always imagine a voice kinda like the Demo-man's from TF2 whenever I play it now.

    Advent Children Cloud sucks! He's just too emo! Cloud was never that emo in the original game. P.S. A massive falling boulder is no match for the Hulk-like Chris Redfield. "CHRIS SMASH!!!"

  • screwball08247 - July 23, 2010 1:27 a.m.

    >Maybe even robot elephants that shoot balls at you. Likin' the TDar reference, Brett. Great article though.
