These are always hard discussions, best/favorites of things. People want to judge it from a number of angles (time spent, nostalgia, rankings, sales, etc.). It's really hard to defend, say, the original Super Mario Bros. games against newer ones, which have similar--but deeper--mechanics, along with a greater variety in gameplay and worlds and characters. A really good example is how s friend was recently telling me that Gran Turismo 2 is the best racing game ever, despite...
Kind of, not TOTALLY. My dad had a SNES when we were growing up, though not an NES. Still, I've played a few of the games in the franchise without much success (Link's Awakening, Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker HD), so I'm not sure having played the NES ones would have fundamentally changed my opinion of the franchise.
I'm not totally sure on Scalebound. It conceptually seemed really cool at launch, but that gameplay felt a bit slow and clunky, particularly going from the fast-paced fighting to the trudgey walking. That, and I'm a bit concerned it's going to be too easy of a game, seeing how your dragon just demolishes enemies. I'm curious as to what the mechanics to keep you engaged and challenged will be. That, and we're talking about another year-plus wait. I was hoping this could be...
Ugh, went out today, and had a bad time. Ended up at 111, not too terrible by my standards, but my front was wretched. After a solid 48 (par-34) front last time, I went up to 57 on the front today. I couldn't hit a drive to save my life, and kicked them just about every terrible way you could imagine (including one that shot WAY left and short on a line, hit two trees, then came back to rest about 20 yards from the tees). The worst part is that I got a decent back-9 score...
There are only two instances we don't follow the rules. There are unusually restrictive OoB markers on two holes at the course we go to, so if no one is around, we might play a ball technically OoB. Thankfully, that's an issue I had last year, but haven't had to really deal with in 2015. Then, we don't play wet bunkers. Well, I will (my partners won't), but I won't if the bunker is unplayably filled with water (as in, the whole thing is filled, which has only happened...
I've only played alone, and it was for 8 holes (playing partner left after 10). I kind of liked the feeling, partially because it let me play music (which can make it more enjoyable), and I don't have to worry about being slow when he and I share a cart and hit opposite ways or one of us plays poorly. Still, I'm not big on playing alone, it's just kind of boring, in a way. I like having back-and-forths on holes with my cousin, who I play with (we shoot around the same...
If I were to finish out having a good set of clubs, I think I could break 100 on a good day. I usually play in the 115 range. Saturday, went out to the typical course my cousin and I go to, and it was an aquatic mess. We couldn't play the bunkers (most were AT LEAST half-filled with water). We let each other take free drops on some particularly nasty parts of the course (like where the water-logged course had carts go over to the point of turning it into mud tracks). I was...
I'm iffy on Madden, because the A.I. is completely inept for online play. If you're doing MUT Seasons (which I am off-and-on with solo MUT stuff), there are too many folks who can exploit the bad defensive A.I. If you have a mobile QB, a play-action pass where you send guys deep then run with the QB is hard to defend, mostly because the game won't let you switch to a defender to charge the QB.   I played the Destiny beta and passed. The social/MMO aspects of the game are...
I never hit the 825s, though I was considering them. I ended up going with the Mizuno EZs myself. What's your price range on a set of irons? I'm just wondering what has you looking at the 825s, but not the EZs or the brand-new 850s, since you mentioned the $1,000 price tag (my EZs were just under $800 post-tax for the 3H-PW, with a switch to a graphite shaft on the hybrid). I'm honestly not a good golfer, and I just got back into playing this year, after not going out...
I'd probably say my 3 Wood. I got a Callaway X Hot 3 Deep because I'm not fond of drivers, which I use off the tee. I've gotten to the point where the distance isn't consistent (I'll hit it anywhere from 150 to 200 yards), but I've got a fairly-consistent trajectory (finishes pretty hard to the right), so I have a reasonable idea of how to aim my shots with it. Meanwhile, with most of my clubs, I don't have the big, late break on shots, but I don't hit them as...
