    I actually really miss SSX3. Was an awesome game having free roam of a mountain with no loading screens, huge diversity in locations, and SO many competititons in which it was impossible to get Gold in until you did some higher ones to get some better Snowboards... wasn't even repetetive, still took ages to complete. Sadly, i found the disc snapped the other day RIP Allegra (the boarder i used to play as :/)

    Gaming wise I'll hardly miss anything. Either I own the original game or I can download/emulate it.

    That games started prioritizing graphics over story for years now. For me, SNES will always be king of the console games

    I miss the NES, SNES, Ronald Reagan (especially compared to the current dumbass in office), the 80s, my best friends now that I live across the country from them and PSO.

    Tenchu and Thief were awesome.

    I miss games like KotOR, Nox, D2, Thief etcetera....
    Atleast they had good story/very good gameplay/made you think/were hardmode/lasted longer than 4 fucking hours!

    Sultry eyes that stare, waiting
    To lure the hungry heart

    I miss having magic in Zelda games. None of the more recent ones have had magic. LET ME CAST DIN'S FIRE DAMNIT.
    I miss having a melody play when I pick up an expansion in a Metroid game. Minor point for some people, major for me! I also miss Samus being a more respectable character. As attractive as I admit she looks in the zero suit, she was never meant to be a sex symbol. That and the ridiculous panicky scared submissive way she acts in Other M make me die a little inside.

    I miss having First person shooters where you have to compensate for bullet drop over long distances and lead a moving target. Using precise, timed, aimed shots with a bolt action rather than having an assault rifle that's accurate to the other side of the map and helicopters killing my enemies for me.
    Games like Modern Warfare are pretty fun, if you just want to have a quick game of killing people in a reflex orientated shooter that gets quite hectic. But I want games that reward you for being patient and taking good shots rather than spamming grenades and bullets. Think United Offencive.
    Yes I know Renagade is spelt wrong, I have use this name since I was about 5 and stuck with it ^_^
    Protection paladin, survival hunter, and fire mage since vanilla. Avid Mount, pet, and Interesting Trinket collector.

    Final Fantasy games before they got guns and industry - yes, I mean before VII
    Not hating on VII, I just wish they would have called it something else (and started a new series) and continued with an old-school fantasy theme. I totally understand that the Final Fantasy name alone sells, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with it.
    Opulence. I has it.

    This on so many levels... FFX was the last of its kind to me.

    Or maybe the awesomeness that is Crash Bandicoot before it got sold to some bad gamecompany. CTR ftw

    Likewise. I think WC3 was one of the pinnacles of gaming. The entire Origin lineup was incredible - Privateer, WC2, WC4, Armada, etc. Starlancer, Freelancer (not freespace), by the DA guys are great as well.

    I miss games that actually had epic soundtracks. Nowadays music seems to be rushed in almost every game. HOMM2-3 still has the best soundtracks ever made. Also Gothic series. Sure there's some great sounds in WoW too, especially http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_xJJftWiLg

    I bet you could find it cheap =P
    Rogue Squadron - N64.
    Rogue Squadron 2 - Gamecube. Works on the Wii too. If you have none of those consoles... you have definitely missed out ^_^
    Rogue Squadron 3 - Also Gamecube. The ground based missions are a bit lack luster but the flying ones are great.

    Really immersive gameplay, challenging, great controls, engaging. Well made games ^_^
