I didn't say it was better or worse. I don't think Parrothead has either. People who like really popular games aren't wrong. I mean I still love me a bit of Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, etc...
But when you're playing a game hardly anyone you know has even heard of, let alone played, then it feels like a more personal experience. You learn to love characters nobody else even knows. You want the world to love them as much as you do.
And it works. Look at how happy everyone is that Takamaru is in Captain Rainbow now

Here's a promo video for the TurboGrafx 16 that was mailed to people in the US in the early 90's. No need to watch the whole thing, but do check out the brilliantly cheesy first couple of minutes. In particular...
1:02 - The announcer explains the name. So, "grafx" is for graphics? No kidding! ;D
2:05 - Those two guys get really excited when they actually lose a round of Fighting Street!
2:19 - Who doesn't dance to CD's like this? I know I do!
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
