I almost picked up The Last of Us the other day, then didn't. Mainly because, even though its meant to be great, I'm not a fan of zombie/post apocalyptic stuff. It's just a bit of a tired concept. (zombies also freak me out) 

Then again, it's the makers of the Jak and Uncharted games, which are awesome. So I'm open to being convinced.

Anyone know of a good Sci-fi rpg for NES, Snes, Genesis, Psx, or Psp, other than the Final Fantasy games?

Not RPG, but man, Super Metroid (SNES) is the beez neez (as are most Metroid games). Sci-fi/puzzle/adventure/shooter

I thought about Chrono Trigger, I will keep it in mind if I can't come up with anything else, but it's not exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you though, @"addiesin" 
As for Super Metroid, I really should get around to playing a Metroid game. My mother beat Super Metroid sometime last year, and she's not much of a game player. I can't say I'm ready for a game like that yet, and if I were, I'd probably play Metroid Fusion or Zero Mission first, for some personal reason. Thank you for your suggestion though! 

I will gladly take suggestions for platformers too, as long as they aren't puzzling. I don't want to think, unless it's something strategic rather than puzzle solving.

In unrelated news, I just picked up one of those mini arcade cabinets, for Bad Dudes vs DragonNinja, because it was on sale at Wal-Mart. I have fond memories of this game, and look forward to saving President Ronnie within the comfort of my bed, without a second player.
I also have a mini arcade of Centipede, another great arcade game.

Metroid Zero Mission is a remake of the first Metroid Game, so would be a good one to start with. 

If you have a GBA and like RPG's, then Golden Sun 2 is very good (I haven't played the first one, but I'm sure it's also worth playing). It's fantasy, not Sci fi though.

And if it isn't already clear from previous posts, the Jak Trilogy is my all time favourite set of games. The first one is a sandbox platformer, and the sequels expand that world, darken it and add a 3rd person shooter/hulk-like element. If you have a PS2 and haven't played them, get on it!

I kinda prefer to play games in order, even if they don't directly connect, and I guess that's part of the reason why I would want to start with Zero Mission. As for Fusion, I believe I've heard that it's somewhat more linear than the other games, on top of being great, so those factors may surpass the need for chronology. But I swear, I will play Super Metroid eventually. 

As for Golden Sun, I've been meaning to play those games forever, my uncle loves them and has recommended them. Perhaps I may try it out in spite of my current fixation on sci-fi. 

As for Jak, I really appreciate the recommendation! However, my ps2 is somewhere lost in storage after moving. Hence the consoles mentioned in the first post. I could potentially get the collection on ps4, we'll see.

Mega man legends,  although it takes a small amount of thinking.

I'm so excited for Death Stranding. I've already vowed to play all the way through it when it comes out. It's worth noting that I've never played a Hideo Kojima game (well, I've tried MGS 3, but never got far), and theoretically I have no reason to be excited for this. I guess the weirdness and lack of info draws me in, it seems surreal, artsy, and ambitious, and I'm all about that.

Recently picked up Yoshis Whooly World. Haven't played it yet but I've heard it's pretty good, and yoshis island (pacifier edition) is one of my favorites.

Yes. And the pacifier edition is Just a Rom hack that does nothing but mute baby Mario's crying. But it can be combined with level hacks.

I'm really enjoying yoshis wooly world. It's not as good as yoshis island, but expecting it to be would be madness. I haven't played
any handheld yoshi games, because i don't play handhelds in general, but it's leagues better than yoshi story.

I've started playing through Breath of the Wild again.
Been over a year since I completed it, so many things feel very fresh this time around.

Possessed, I highly recommend Yoshi's Island DS. It's the Yoshi game I've put the most time into. I've been meaning to play through it again.

I don't play handhelds, and from what I've seen it doesn't look nearly as good as the original. And there's a multitude of hacks out for the original if I need new levels.

Just got done beating Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels (or super Mario bros 2 J if you nasty) complete with the world 9 and alphabet world post quest, as I do about once a year. I played the super Mario all stars version but with the brick fix mod which makes the physics back to how they were on the nes.

I came out of it thinking the same thing I think every year after beating it.

"Man, fuck this game".

I've been playing Hitman Absolution after buying it from a thrift store last week. I really love it. I've tried a couple other games in the series before, but I couldn't really get into them.
