    • Action

    When you think of games that are perfect from beginning to end, which games do you think of? Fire Emblem Seisen no Keifu, Metroid, Snatcher, Zelda, Super Mario World, Final Fantasy VI, Tengai Makyô II, or Rockman 2 may come to your mind (well, if you have got good taste), but the original Shinobi arcade game may be one of the very few truly flawless well-aging video games.

    First, there was nothing. Humans used to lead meaningless lives without any aim. And then there was XEXEX (pronounced “zeks zeks”), the pinnacle of Konami shooters, the true masterpiece of humanity, and the real reason we are there.

    • RPG

    When the subject of late 80s~ early 90s RPGs gets approached, the legendary Tengai Makyô series (Far East of Eden) is one of the biggest names that spring to mind. A lot of RPG experts who played the second episode consider it one of the best RPG of all of time, if not the best.
