As many people know that Hyperkin SupaBoy S is almost like the Nintendo Switch version of the SNES.  The cool thing about the Hyperkin SupaBoy S is the fact that people can play any SNES game from the 90’s on it.  But when it comes down to popularity the Hyperkin SupaBoy S is not really on the same level as the PS Vita which definitely has better graphics and gameplay as far as 3D titles are concerned.  But when it comes down to PlayStation Vita titles there aren’t too many that can be compared those of the SNES as far as popularity is concerned.  While the PS Vita has better quality as far as graphics are concerned the replay value of many of the Vita games are not quite as high as the classics for the SNES such as Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Mega Man X and many others.

However, the Hyperkin SupaBoy S not sold nearly as many units worldwide as PS Vita especially considering the fact that its basically a hybrid version of the SNES.  In terms of which  console is better between the PS Vita and the Hyperkin SupaBoy S really depends on how each game system is looked at.  If we are talking about sales and quality the PS Vita would probably be considered a better game console.  But if we are talking about actual games for each console then the Hyperkin SupaBoy S would might have the slight advantage over the PS Vita depending on who you ask.

When it comes down to RPG titles of 00’s Kingdom Hearts II was probably one of the most popular games of the decade.   Kingdom Hearts II was released for both the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation 3 between 2005-2006 and was the third game in the series following the release of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories which came out in the Fall of 2004.  Ever since the original version of Kingdom Hearts II was released for the PlayStation 2 the game had managed to sell over 4 million units worldwide on that console alone while reaching over one million on the PlayStation 3.

In terms of whether or not Kingdom Hearts II would have worked on the Nintendo GameCube is debatable.  After all, the relationship between Square Enix and Nintendo was still a bit rocky following the fallout the two entities had back in the 90’s involving the N64.  As far as graphics and gameplay are concerned many argue that Kingdom Hearts II could have definitely worked on the Nintendo Gamecube.  However, its questionable on whether or not a GameCube port of Kingdom Hearts II could have sold as much as the PS2 version of the game considering how popular the console was throughout the entire decade.  If anything Kingdom Hearts II being released exclusively for PlayStation consoles is what helped the game out in terms of sales.

Should there have been an Earthbound game for the N64?

When it comes down to popular RPG titles on the Nintendo based consoles Earthbound  was arguably one of the most popular titles within its genre during the 16 bit era of gaming.  For many years one of the biggest questions that many people in the gaming world had in regards to the Earthbound series is about circumstances involving the cancellation of Earthbound 64.  As many people know Earthbound 64 was originally supposed to released for the 64 Disk Drive in the late 90’s but for some reason it didn’t work.    As a result HAL Laboratory and Ape Inc eventually started developing the cartridge version Earthbound 64 before it was ultimately cancelled in 2000.

While many people are bummed about the fact that Earthbound 64 got cancelled in 2000 it could have been for the best in the long run.  While seeing a 3D Earthbound game would have been cool between 1999-2000 the development team had reportedly struggled throughout the who process of making the game.  Besides the use of 2D graphics and gameplay is what drew people to the Earthbound series to begin with back in 1994.  If the development team for Earthbound 64 did not feel comfortable about what the final product would look like then the game could have been a complete disaster overall if it was still released.

Back in the Spring of 2015 the original Bloodborne game was released exclusively for the PS4.  When it comes down to various aspects of the game including the inclusion of a good story, graphics and in game mechanics it they were all qualities that many people found appealing.  Since its release back in March 2015 Bloodborne had managed to sell over 2 million units worldwide and is arguably considered to be in the top ten as far as best action titles are concerned.

Even though, Blodborne was very popular back in 2015 it was made exclusively for the PS4 .  There are some people wonder whether or not Bloodborne could work for the Nintendo Switch if FromSoftware had any plans to bring the game to the hybrid console.  After all, we did get to see other great games such as Skyrim and even Doom on the Nintendo Switch and the quality of each game on the hybrid console had exceeded the expectations of many people.  Since the Nintendo Switch is arguably at the peak of its popularity bring a game such as Bloodborne to the hybrid console would definitely turn heads in the gaming world

Will Mega Man 11 have more success than Mighty No. 9?

When Level 5 Comcept and Inti Creates developed and released Mighty No.9 back in 2016 the gaming world had believed that the game was the closest thing that we were going to get to in relation to another Mega Man game.  After all, Mighty No. 9 did have nice 2D gameplay with 3D graphics along with the fact that the game had utilized the Unreal Engine.  Despite, how cool Mighty No. 9 looked at first glance the game was criticized by many people for a variety of different reasons.  However, looking at graphics of Capcom’s Mega Man 11 some people can make the argument that the game looks similar to that of Mighty No. 9.

The idea of having  a 2D gameplay with 3D graphics was also  something that Sega has tried with the Sonic the Hedgehog 4 back in 2010.  While Sonic the Hedgehog series is mainly known for its 2D 16 bit gameplay on the Sega Genesis which made it popular to begin with Sonic 4 was not considered to be nearly as popular as its predecessor Sonic 3 in terms of quality and sales.  Looking at Mega Man 11 some can easily argue that Capcom can easily make the same mistake that the developers for Mighty No. 9 did when its comes down to gameplay.  However, Capcom rarely fails to disappoint when it comes down to Mega Man games along with the fact that the world has been waiting to see a sequel to Mega Man 10 since 2010.

When we think about racing games of 2017 one of the many games that stand out is Gran Turismo Sport which many people have been waiting to since Gran Turismo 6 which was released in 2013.  In terms of sales Gran Turismo Sport reported has managed to reach over 982,000 units within its first week.  Even though, Gran Turismo is a good racing game and has done great in sales there are still who are die hard fans of Forza Motorsport 7 and Project Cars 2 and feel one of those games should hold the title for being the best racing game of the year.

In terms of quality some can make the argument that Forza Motorsport 7 is just as good a Gran Turismo Sport.  However, Gran Turismo Sport was probably the most anticipated racing game of the past few years.  When it comes down to certain aspects of the Gran Tursimo Sport such as the total car count there are some people who are bewildered by the fact that game has less than 200 cars.   Not only has Polyphony Digital reduced the total car count from it predecessor Gran Turimso 6 which included over 1100 vehicles but it seems like Project Cars 2 and Forza Motorsport 7 has more cars than their respective predecessors.  Despite, the lack of cars included in Gran Turismo Sport in comparison to other games the sales for the game were impressive and has already managed to reach over one million units worldwide since its release in October 2017.

Could Metal Gear Solid have worked on the N64 during the 90’s?

Metal Gear Solid PS1 (1)

Back in the late 90’s the Metal Gear Solid game that was released for the PS1 was arguably one of the hottest action titles on the game console.  In terms of sales Metal Gear Solid Tactical Espionage Action had managed to sell over 6 million units worldwide on the PS1 and was arguably one of the best games of 1998.  Despite, the amount of success that Metal Gear Solid Tactical Espionage Action had on the PS1 there are some who question whether or not the game would have had the same amount of success on the Nintendo 64.  Over the years there has been rumors about the fact that Metal Gear Solid Tactical Espionage Action was at one point scheduled to be released for the Nintendo 64.

Whether those rumors are true are not is debatable but the reason why Konami never decided to port Metal Gear Solid Tactical Espionage Action for the N64 is something that many fans of the series have often thought about.  Although, the PS1 was arguably a more popular console the Nintendo 64 had better 3D graphics. But, the N64 did have its share of popular games such as 007 GoldenEye and Perfect Dark which were both successful and sold million on that console during the late 90’s and the early 00’s.  If Metal Gear Solid Tactical Espionage was released for the N64 it could have at least sold over one million units worldwide.  However, Metal Gear Solid Tactical Espionage may not have sold nearly as much on the N64 as it did on the PS1.
