Hi, Everybody!

I've just joined and love the site. I started gaming when I was five on the Atari 2600 and jumped off current console gaming when the PS3/360 era started. I do own a Wii but only use it for retro gaming. I like all genres of games to some degree, with strategic RPGs being my fav. (Shining Force, Tactics Ogre, FF Tactics, etc.)

I have a question regarding high scores on sports game, take Tecmo Super bowl for example. which mode do you play in? Exibition? Season? Pro Bowl? Does it even matter? I didn't see a thread for it but there are a lot of threads. Thanks in advance.

Re: Hi, Everybody!

Welcome to RU Nick! I've already seen you around the forums!

As for Tecmo Bowl, I believe if you are submitting a score, you play Exhibition and if you are playing to clear the game, you play the season.

Re: Hi, Everybody!

It should also be noted that if you are submitting a score it will be the spread. Meaning your final score will be the total points you scored minus any points the computer scored.

Re: Hi, Everybody!

Final Fantasy Tactics is godly, and is the only thing that can come close to touching the near omnipotent badassery that is Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together.

Welcome to RU, Dr. Nick! Definitely the best site on the web, and I'm not just saying that because I get paid!
