Best and Worst Video Game Ports

Postby FireyPaperMario » Sat Feb 24, 2018 5:58 pm

We all know the method process of how a video game port is made (And no, games on the Wii, WiiU, & 3DS virtual console doesn't count as ports! :x ), so time to discuss some video game ports we think are the best & worst! Shall we?

I'll start:

Best ports in my opinion:
Spoiler: show
  • Any of the 3-D AND SEGA AGES ports of beloved Sega classics (Example, 3-D Sonic 1 & 2) on the Nintendo 3DS eshop & Nintendo Switch. ^^
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3-D, because Master Quest mode is more fun for me! :P
  • Lego Star Wars (Game Boy Advance version)
  • Street Fighter Alpha: Warrior's Dream on the Game Boy Color
  • Dragon Quest/Warrior I & II on the Gameboy Color
Okay ports in my opinion:
Spoiler: show
  • Donkey Kong Country on the Game Boy Color
  • PAC-MAN on iOS & Android devices
  • Heroes of Might and Magic on the Gameboy Color
Worst ports in my opinion:
Spoiler: show
  • Chrono Trigger on the PC/Steam (After knowing how fucking bad the port is on Twitter a few moments ago!)
  • Mega Man II on the Sega Master System (The character sprites looks the same as the NES version. Why not enhance the freaking graphics & sprites?!?)

Contra was originally for the NES. I think android sonic ports suck because you cant get rid of ads.

you know there's an "In-app Purchase" in the mobile phone & tablet ports of Sonic games to remove ads, right?

I think you're wrong. Contra was released as an arcade game first. The NES port came later.

Check my post again. I said the Super Mario Advance series are GBA ports of SNES titles (SMW & Yoshi's Island) and NES titles (SMB2 & SMB3 All Stars version).

There's a reason you haven't heard of these before. Mega Man X IOS feels like a licensed bootleg and Sonic GBA runs like absolute shit.

I wonder if any of y'all heard of the PC/Steam version of the beloved Square Enix Jrpg, Chrono Trigger? I heard from Twitter. And after reading some of the tweets complaining about the port, it must be the WORST port ever!
