I am voting for Fortified Zone/Operation Logic Bomb, and I'm not sure if we're allowing a triple bill, but I encourage playing Ikari no Yousai II also. I can't vote for Doom 64 since I'm too familiar with it, and while I concede SaGa would be the meatiest game and would provide for a lot of discussion fuel, I don't have the time or patience to cope with Akitoshi Kawazu at this point in my life.
SF would definitely make for interesting discussion and be an interesting challenge, but i fear that as we saw with Sweet Home, it might keep most people from playing and participating.
At least for SF, you can purchase it now. Unlike Sweet Home you can find it easily and in English. So definitely it's much more accessible.
I agree and disagree. I know there's the grey area about emulation, but in the case of Sweet Home it shouldn't be an issue for anyone legally or morally. The game will never see a legit localization, not the least of which being that the game is in a double licensing hell (check out the podcast!). If Capcom had an issue with it, there would have been an injunction years ago. Anyway I know a couple of people have voiced distaste for emulation and I can respect that, but you're missing out on a cool game. If anything buy a copy cheap on eBay or whatever (its not very rare). Hell I've got three copies, pretend you're borrowing one.
In response to Ike I'd be interested in seeing how SF plays, since I thought the core of Sweet Home was pretty straightforward - just kind of tedious at worst. All of the other games of Kawazu's that I've played had that stupid FF2 stat system or something equally dumb to deal with (wanna punch something? Buy 50 punches from a store.). It's like dealing with the metric system (or visa-versa, the English system)- I'm guessing if you dealt exclusively with it all your life it would feel just as great as some people claim it is. Otherwise it's unwieldly and a pain in the ass.
