  1. Sonic 1 Binding of Isaac Zelda: A Link to the Past Jet Set Radio Future Smash Bros Melee. (was 3'rd Strike but I probably did have more fun with Melee.)
  2. Although it has modern animation the first series is an accurate portrayal of an 80s Manga. I don't know if it's a parody but it's certainly a homage to stuff like FotNS and I can see can see completely why the first episodes can put people off. It took me a while before I picked up the series after initially dropping it - but I now have a lot of fondness for the first series. The characters aren't written well and the the story is cliché but there's an ernest charm to it and it has so many memorable moments that will stick with you. The action's pretty good as well and there's some very 80s fights in there. The second season is much better Imo and has a really, really spectacular ending but is still very much In that 80s vibe with some ropey dialogue and strange moments. 3 retcons the story/power system and is the best straight action season, the quality levels up again and there's a lot hilarious moments and strategic fights. The last 3 series are a lot more modern and experimental, varying quite a lot in a number of ways. It's definitely worth sticking with anywho!
  3. This is exactly what I imagined JoJo could be before I ever watched it. This is by far my favourite season - I hope it continues to stay at the high calibre it's set. Joylene is definitively the best JoJo.
  4. Pipe/Hacking Puzzles, especially the shit ones, like Octavius's lab puzzles. It's just there for content.
  5. This game's basically this year's Undertale. Amazing.
  6. Season 5 felt ace and different, took the spotlight off Dexter a little which was needed. Never got the hate for it tbh.

    Wonka

    I can imagine some value here - Willy Wonka does just throw up question after question of you try and logic it out. A series would be better though; detailing the harsh business dealings, creative challenges and adventures that Wonka had to experience in order to create the Chocolate factory.
  8. I really struggled with a few of the SMB1 levels that I used to fly-through on the GC - had to give up on Choice and just take the easy route - where previously I used to get the end tightrope fairly consistently.

    Squid Game

    It's not on UK but honestly they're a world apart. It's not a terrible movie but it's not great either. It's definitely worth investing the time into the series!

    Squid Game

    Enjoyed this a lot, the games had strategy and it got me invested in a lot of the characters. Guessed a lot of the over-arching twists and storyline - but that's honestly a good thing as it means it laid those breadcrumbs out. Anyway if you like this I strongly suggest watching Kaiji - incredibly similar premise (to the point where I wouldn't have been surprised if this was an adaption) and it's absolutely fantastic! There's even a quirky little spin-off series showing the struggles of the people who run the games trying to appease their bloodthirsty boss. https://www.crunchyroll.com/en-gb/kaiji Edit: (Start with ultimate survivor - it's probably not clear if you don't know but that's season 1)
  11. Rick and Morty *is* meta - It's a absurdist take on Science Fiction. It's a massive part of the show. I think the issue is actually that they don't build to it; it's quite easy to overlook when it's handed to you. Enjoyed the ending - didn't need to be a two parter and I thought the final scene should have blown away the budget with pshycedelic imagery but instead felt a little flat.
