Well, this is going along just as well as the vote in the original thread did :lol:

I really didn't give Lost Vikings its due when it came out. There's a port for the GBA I'm dying to pick up if this wins. As the person who nominated this game originally said, this game is made for TR.

C'mon Oddworld, we can win this one.

Lost Vikings is nice and all, but Oddworld offers some real atmosphere that I think everyone should experience.

It's a game I played as a kid but found too hard and challenging, and a bit creepy, yet it's one which has stuck with me as one that I really should try again now I'm older and wiser :lol:

Actually, I think both of these games would work well for Together Retro.

Oddworld has a new remake next year though. Could be a podcast/article opportunity?

Same. I love Lost Vikings... but I already know I love Lost Vikings! I want to know if I'll love Oddworld.


See, I've played a lot of Lost Vikings and want everyone else to realize how great it is.

Plus it'll give me an excuse to bust out the Amiga CD32.

^ That is pretty fair reasoning... now I feel selfish :lol:

I guess I want to be one of the people discovering the brilliance of the game, instead of watching others realize how good something is, when I have already played it to bits. I totally get wanting others to experience something you love though (Which is why I pretty much forced people to play an NMK shmup this year)

With this selection though, you really can't go wrong. I'll be playing whichever one wins.

So... is the first Lost Vikings generally considered the better game? I tend to revisit the 2nd game more often.

The creators of a famous Internet cartoon highly endorse one game (click pic for link) --
