I was thinking of doing something akin to the NinDB Top 25 without actually showcasing 25 favourite games (because it's not like our opinions are going to change annually). This long video is the result. (See YouTube comments for quick seeking)
I picked my 3 favourite songs per system (without picking the same game twice), and added a few other songs that I like but didn't quite make it. This list can actually go on and on, but I wanted to keep the scope clear.
At first, I was going for top 4 or 5 per system, but I couldn't think of anything good enough for NES and N64 (at least with Nintendo-published games), and the honourable mentions was how I worked around that. On the other hand, I can probably dedicate a section for Dreamcast, but that would look weird in this otherwise Nintendo-centric video.

I like to think music is the philosophy of the soul. I guess that's why we evolved to have ears, smell (the most ancient believed) was not enough for us; dogs however yes but they can't see as well (cognitive trade-off theory).
I like Space Tank/X-Scape series' tunnel scene - also Starfy series, Tomato Adventure, *thinking* Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru, Yuyuki, Time Twist, Pokémon series, Sutte Hakkun Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby Triple Deluxe music. When I'm sad, Midna's Lament, but the most powerful to my heart is Song of Healing from Majora's Mask, and I will never forget N's emotion theme from Pokémon Black/White either - the idea of truth/ideals spoke loudest during my psychosis. www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxPOSrrWjJY - it was like: Ghetsis theme was the true rigidity (N proved them wrong in a mysterious way), Ghetsis' song felt simply a chant for him, however N "who was called not to have a human heart" had that linked theme. Song of Healing feels like a mixture of both, which is why it is both so potent but awakening when you need it.
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?

nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.

nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?

nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.
