So what do ya think is the best "Extra" content that's been included in a game?

Sorry if my Title sounds off,You can only type so much with 80 character, like an extra gamemode or something that you had to unlock it through the game or something like that.(Not necessarily through that way, but ya got the idea right?)


My vote goes to W@W with Nazi Zombies. It wowed me at the time, and was a complete surprise when we beat the campaign at my friends house back in 08. Now in 2013 Nazi Zombies have it's own special story that's really cool. I highly recommend ya looking it up on Youtube if ya get the time.

Bonus games are always cool. Loved being able to play the original Metal Gear games when I bought Subsistence.

It's not that noteworthy anymore, but I think the Grade Shop in Tales games is an awesome feature. Loads of games have a new game plus mode, but there's usually not a lot of incentive to play it again, but a harder difficulty level + various bonuses that you can earn makes Tales games much more replayable than most.

Not any on PS3 off the top of my head, but ones I was pleasantly surprised by were all the Game Gear Sonic games on Sonic Adventure (Gamecube), NES games on Animal Crossing, and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories' Riku's story.

That is a pretty cool feature. Too bad whenever I go to play an RPG I like to start with fresh stats. Still, it's awesome for anyone that likes new game+.

That's precisely why the grade shop is cool because you CAN start with fresh stats. I think NG+ is boring in other games when you start at level 60 and can't be touched. In Tales you can pick and choose which features you want to keep.

My favorite "extra" was probably Culex from Super Mario RPG for the SNES. A Final-Fantasy IV boss, complete with the correct music, graphics, and crystals, in the middle of an RPG game? Yes please.

Actually, scratch that - probably the real favorite extra was the game that I believe introduced the concept of New Game + : Chrono Trigger.



Oh, you mean RECENT extras? I'd have to go with Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare add-on. Awesome.

I'd want an Extra's Menu.

Something I can unlock and browse while actually playing the game, that I can use as a reference source for information. Something equivalent to modern Player's Guides, with comprehensive information about a game.

I can't think of a better extra than that, other than maybe a New Game+ mode that carries over all of your progress. I recently replayed Bioshock using it's NG+ mode, and it was fun as hell. Love the way that NG+ mode was handled.

"Cute" in an RPG is a kiddy euphemism for "Sexy".
Online is the worst thing to happen to gaming.
