Immediate Systems In GBA Roms – An Intro
It’s a game where you have to wake up early, go out into the fields, work throughout the day tilling the land, planting seeds and harvesting crops and then crash back into your bed exhausted well after the sun’s already set. Somehow, someway, Natsume’s Harvest Moon series managed to make managing a farmstead in a video game feel exciting and rewarding – and this first game was so successful, in fact, that it spawned an entire franchise. It paired the appeal of Nintendo’s Metroid series with the mature sensibilities of its source material and wrapped the whole thing up in a dark, frightening presentation that expertly evoked the atmosphere of the films. Though the battle for home console supremacy was mainly fought by three factions – the SNES, the Genesis and the TurboGrafx-16 – one fourth competitor, SNK’s Neo Geo, was also active in that same era.
Seeing Leo, Raph, Don and Mikey warp through history and pop up in the age of the dinosaurs, the wild west and the far-flung future was even more epic and awesome than we could have imagined. The franchise-launching first installments of long-running series continue to appear as our countdown continues, and Ogre Battle is the next to be honored.
Still, when you’re talking about the first three Super Mario Bros. games, it’s hard to protest too much. In some ways these games are so good that it was hard not to make this compilation #1 on our list. NBA Jam was an absolute blast in its coin-op cabinet, and when it came home to the SNES it got even crazier with a wide variety of secret codes and hidden playable characters – like President Bill Clinton. This game had it all – bright graphics that perfectly captured the look and personality of the classic cartoon, a cool Mode 7-utilizing throw attack that let you toss enemies into the screen and, best of all, time travel.
Maybe parents took offense to the creepy demonic art on its box? Who knows why, but Demon’s Crest somehow managed to earn an interesting distinction among the entire SNES library – it became the only Super Nintendo title in history to actual register negative sales at one point. That means, in the course of one week, there were more people who returned the game to get their money back than there were others who actually purchased and kept it. On paper, Harvest Moon sounds like it would be no fun at all.
Ogre Battle would go on to inspire sequels on the N64, Game Boy Advance and beyond. Another great series that the Super Nintendo helped to start. Capcom’s devilish hero Firebrand first appeared as an annoying, antagonizing enemy character in Ghosts ‘N Goblins. Not because it was a bad game – we wouldn’t be honoring it if it were. But because, for whatever reason, it bombed in sales.
