Think of a game that you like,
then tell me 3 things that you like about it,
and then 3 things the you do not like about it.

World of Warcraft


1, Sheer size & scale of the game
2, Interaction with other players, both hostile & friendly
3, no right way or wrong way to play it, it's up to you what you do


1, Having to pay £9 per month to play it
2, A quick "10min play" not really possible, WoW game time is hours rather than minutes  ;)
3, Reliance of other players for certain things, while fine with genuine players some are to lazy to put the effort in

RYGAR legendary warrior (Argus no senshi) - 1986 Tecmo Arcade - played on maximum difficulty.

1- Really hard, requires jack crack timing.
2- Round is time based, you can stay longer and face the invincible big strawberry, if you are really good, you can stay long enough to collect all symbols.
3- plenty of enemies (varied ones too) that comes on regular intervals.

1- Rygar movement below ground level is a bit erratic. While jumping, below ground you don´t move left or right.
2- weapon has some strange behavior, ex. sometimes it dosen´t kill grouped enemies even with the sun power. (I take it as a feature though... :P)
3- final boss is weird, looks like a ´fast done´one.
