What Will We Look Back and Play in 20 Years?

The year is 2031.  You want to remember your younger days and maybe show your kids/grandkids what gaming was to you when you were their age.  Dusting off your old system and finding an actual tv screen at an old garage sale (since you can't hook  up your NES/SNES/etc. to your Brain-TV) you start to look for some titles to show off the way it was.  So here's the question...what would you go for?  What games would you choose that have come out so far that you believe will hold up gameplay or story wise in 20 years?  Even now in 2011 we will break out our old games sometimes or just download them onto a newer system to enjoy our gaming heritage.  Super Mario Bros. has survived for 25 years, Resident Evil has been around for 15, it's been 18 years since we first walked slowly around the world of Myst, and a short 14 years since we met Cloud Strife in Final Fantasy VII.  

And for a bonus thought about a later article, keep in mind the DLC that each title has and think about how the game would be without it available.  Does it render parts unplayable, a game not really finished, or maybe one of your memorable parts just happens to be part of an expansion?  Sadly the servers and systems that are around today for these conveniences will not be around forever. (look at the original Xbox as a good example of this today.)

I will post some of my suggestions below in the comments....let us hear from you as well by posting them below or @Zenspath on Twitter!

Your Top 10 SNES Games?

SNES Designed Fake Wii

Well, more news has come up in regards to Nintendo's "Project Cafe" finally confirming that it will be shown and playable by the attendees of this years E3 in July.  One comment that I found interesting is the rumor from IGN that this new system will feature a "modernized" SNES design.  This got me and N5omniac thinking about our old Super Nintendo systems and then finally to working up our own personal top 10 games for that generation of Nintendo fun.  Brent will add his own later plus we will be talking about it on the next show, but here is a quick look at my own.  (And remember...this is MY personal top 10...not our top 10 all around).

 Jeremy's Personal Top 10 SNES Games:

  1. Super Metroid
  2. Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  3. Donkey Kong Country
  4. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
  5. King Arthur's World
  6. Super Mario All Stars
  7. Zombies Ate My Neighbors
  8. Secret of Evermore
  9. Star Trek: Star Fleet Academy
  10. Stunt Race FX

 So there you are with my top 10 favorite SNES games.  Comment below about the list (what you agree about, what's missing, etc.) or you can even post your own top 10 favorites for us all to see!

When Digital Goes Wrong

So after we recorded the podcast, me and N5omniac tried to see who had the highest scores in Pinball FX2.  During this, we noticed that the upcoming "Mars" table was listed, so being as we are, we tried to download it.  What came up surprised us as it was listed for -1 Microsoft Point.  Needless to say, we tried to purchase it.  It showed that I had to add more points and that I was 4,294,967,295 Microsoft Points short.  So if you feel like  helping us out and loaning us the points...we will make sure to get it back to you as SOON as possible.  Check out the pictures after the break of this hillarious event.

Welcome to the NEW Zenspath.com!

Well, here we are...I have FINALLY moved to a new hosting company, ported over the podcast, and have been hard at work getting a new group together to start Season 2 and get this going again! 

There will be a few changes that you may notice right away, like the lack of a traditional forum area as well as no on site flash playing of the podcast, but we are working to try and bring some of these features back either with future learning of the new tools available with Squarespace, or by adding some external parts to build up this site into the Voltron I believe it can be. 

Another change will be a larger focus redirected onto the podcast itself.  I will still be trying to write and post articles, reviews, editiorals, etc as well as getting the staff to contribute but the Zenspath Podcast will be what we are most here for.  We will build up a community around the show and the great people that help me make it possible. 

So as always, please email or contact me either by leaving a comment on the site, or by emailing me (zenspath.com@gmail.com for the time being).
