Top 10 Commonly Assumed Things that You Wish Were Actually True About Certain Video Games

I know opinions are subjective, but come on; does Final Fantasy VII really compare to VI, IX and XII in terms of which one is the best overall?

The Top Ten

1 "Best FF game" - Final Fantasy VII

As good as FF VII was it has aged poorly over the last couple of years. - egnomac

Sorry, pal, but in terms of overall quality...VI, IX, XII and (for its time) even IV would really, really, REALLY like to have a word with you - xandermartin98

2 The Genocide Run is overall more challenging than Pacifist - Undertale

Long story short, give it actual bosses besides Sans and Undyne

THEN we'll talk - xandermartin98

If Toriel, Papyrus, Mettaton, Muffet, Alphys(? ) and Asgore were given actual boss fights (CANONICALLY, mind you; in other words, fanmade bosses like Alphys NEO, Disbelief Papyrus, Ultimate King/Queen Asgore/Toriel and MTT NEO 2.0 don't count), then this actually would have been true; making the standard enemies fight back harder depending on how many of them you've killed would also have been a REALLY nice touch to say the least (Toby, PLEASE take notes) - xandermartin98

3 Dragon fights are the best parts of the game (and playing as the warrior class is also still viable on higher difficulties) - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Hate to break it to all of you Draugr memelords out there, but if you ever actually PLAYED this game, you would know that first of all, the dragon fights are complete and utter window dressing and always WILL be, and second of all, while the melee combat HAS been considerably improved compared to that of previous installments, it still becomes largely un-usable once you finally decide to grow a pair and ratchet the game up to actually challenging difficulty settings (yes, even WITH mods like Smilodon; perhaps installing one of the "evade button" mods MIGHT work) - xandermartin98

4 Features characters with even remotely "well-developed" and "intricate" personalities (not counting Frog and Magus) - Chrono Trigger

It's literally like saying that plot was the main focus of the Dragon Ball series (this game had the same leading artist as that show did, so I would definitely consider it a relevant comparison) - xandermartin98

5 "Saddest Game Ever" - Mother 3

Really? Even when compared to:

The Last Of Us?
Half-Life 2?
Undertale Genocide?
God Of War 3?
Fallout Series?
Original BioShock Duology?
The back half of Cave Story?


Hell, even a good chunk of the Metroid series is CONSIDERABLY sadder than this game if you actually take a minute to stop and THINK about it for a change (the Prime Trilogy and Samus' backstory most especially) - xandermartin98

6 Original NES Hyrule theme is included in the soundtrack - The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

Well, technically, the original Brinstar and Norfair themes weren't included in Super Metroid either, but I would say that the new music for those areas MORE than made up for it, MOST especially with Brinstar in particular; same here, honestly, when comparing the original Hyrule Field theme to OOT's - xandermartin98

7 "Captain Falcon's final smash will most certainly involve Falcon Punch in some way or another" - Super Smash Bros. Brawl and 4

Say it with me:

Ganondorf: WATASHI WA SHINEN...SHINENNNZUUU!

Captain Falcon: FARUKON...PONCH!
Rick Wheeler: CAPTAIN, HANG ON!
Ganondorf: URRRAAAHHH!
Theme Music: BARACK OBAMA IN VIETNAM! - xandermartin98

8 The planetary explosion at the end of the game is a supernova because Super is in the game's title - Super Metroid

Sadly debunked by the fact that it technically isn't quite large enough - xandermartin98

9 Lammy, Katy, Rammy and Ma-San have breasts and butts - UmJammer Lammy

Talking about the REAL characters here, not their ludicrously sexy fanart selves (if you really need proof, Lammy literally teleports herself back out of Hell and into the mortal realm by inserting herself into a fax machine in the opening cutscene to Stage 7 of the game's main campaign) - xandermartin98

10 Game will allow you to peek up Rosalina's skirt - Super Smash Bros. 4

Ironically, the character's existence in the first place is probably a big part of the reason why the infamous "black holes" were added into the female characters' skirts in Super Smash Bros. 4 - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 Kefka is the Joker's Equal (In Terms of How Good of a Villain He Actually Is) - Final Fantasy Vi
12 The Music is as Complex and Interesting as It Was in Xenogears - Xenoblade Chronicles
