Screw Final Fantasy, Anyone Ever Play Legend Of Dragoon?

If you’ve never played Sony’s RPG for the original Playstation, you have to. It was an amazing game that used timed “X” button presses to add on damage while attacking. Just watch the video and see what I’m talking about. And I guarantee anyone who has ever played this will be searching for their copy after hearing the music.

Ultimate DK Showdowns


I can’t tell you how many times my friends and I have done this. Basically, the premise is that you start a game of Super Smash Bros. for N64 up with four Donkey Kong’s, all at level 1 difficulty. Then, you change the items to only bombs, land mines, and hammers and watch the stupidity unravel. Now while I don’t condone it, our group would also spice things up a little bit by each picking one of the DK colors and putting a dollar towards whichever overgrown ape ends up outlasting the other.

I think these guys used a level 9 DK in there, but you can still get the general idea from the video. Nothing beats doing it in person, as fans of SSB will never tire of watching this.
