Catherine is the type of game that I long's probably my favorite game from the current generation of consoles.

Big-budget games have their upside...Red Dead Redemption is absolutely one of my favorite games and it's the type of game that certainly wouldn't have been possible 10 years ago, but I generally loathe the huge scope of today's games. I'm a pick-up-and-play single-player fan (which is why 90% of what I play nowadays are sports games...but EA is actively trying to alienate the single-player gamers at this point)...and while the Dreamcast helped usher in the era of online games it used the online capabilities in the way I want them to be an addition to games and not a basis for a game. I'm a single-player only gamer...and it's getting harder and harder to find good games geared for people like me these days.

My favorite genre also remains JRPGs...and they're all but dead at this point.

Amazingly NiGHTS isn't even my favorite Saturn game...while the version I played was on the PlayStation my #2 favorite game originated on the Japanese Saturn and didn't get a North American release until after the Saturn was dead (Grandia).

Now if only I could get Grandia II again I'd be a happy camper.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
