Howdy fellow VGFers,

So I was reading Retrogamer this month, and they did a section discussing their favorite power ups from games through the ages. Thought that it might be something fun to discuss here ;)

One of my favorites that didn't get a mention (unless I just plain missed it... otherwise, can't believe they didn't mention it) has to be the Screw Attack, for its awesome name and ability to shred through annoying Metroid creatures. Life is just so much easier after tracking it down.

What about you guys? Any favs?

The Screw Attack has long been one of my favorite power ups. In the original Metroid for NES, it was almost too powerful.

Dante's Devil Trigger mode in the Devil May Cry games is also a long time favorite. SO powerful.

More recently, I really enjoyed Reckoning mode in Kingdoms of Amalur.

Boots of Force-Wizards and Warriors NES-Why find the key when I can just kick the ish out of that chest full of gems?
Stealth Camo-MGS-Nothing more fun than sneaking up behind people and attaching C4 directly to them, then blowing it up!
Gray Fox Cowl-Oblivion-This mask is a sociopath's dream. Put it on and murder everyone in sight, then remove it and leave the guards clueless as to where Gray Fox went.

SuperSize in Mario Bros where you break blocks just by touching them instead of having to jump up and crack your dome on them.
