Yeah, but you say Skies of Arcadia goes for up to $100 nowadays? Man... I have trouble touching my consoles... If you told me it was a DS game, I'd end up hunting it down a little more readily... :/
By the way, I don't always enjoy bright and colorful stuff. I barely enjoyed Tales of Phantasia (I thought it was too boring and the dungeon designs were straight from a Hell of Boredom). Heck, I don't like the Tales series in general. Most mascot platformers make me sick (I guess I enjoy Mario out of a grandfather clause or something, and I'm one of those weird people who preferred Sonic Adventure 1 & 2). Anything Sims makes my head scratch "Why would anyone enjoy this?".
In the other scale, I ended up liking Shin Megami Tensei (even though I don't understand 80% of it because of language), I liked what I played of SMT II, Persona 2, Persona 4 (which is brighter, but still), Strange Journey, Devil Summoner, and Devil Survivor. I liked what I saw and heard (from you!) for Nocturne. I liked Fallout 3 and wouldn't be against playing any of the other games in the franchise (and would play the Elder Scrolls games). I've got Catherine which I'm excited about (but haven't found the time to play). I've got both Hotel Dusk games, which are my sister's, but I also want to find time to play them. I've played and enjoyed Amnesia and eventually, I may pick up Limbo (which I got for my sister).
But ugh. So much stuff to play, so much stuff I want to do with my life, so little time I'm home and awake. I've got no stamina.
