If anyone wants to beef up their difficulty like one anon posted about a couple threads ago, don't be afraid to give this a shot. I renamed the difficulties to Doom 64, removed Nightmare because I don't play it admittedly, and added Critical Mode and Contra Hard! difficulties. http://www.mediafire.com/download/mp972r695l6ve5h/GZ-customDoomdifficulties.wad
I'd release this sky pack too, but I don't have anything for Episode 2 unfortunately and after a GZD update at one point, the ACS that an anon helped me with for an animated sky in Episode... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Now the one I personally wanted to discuss was Dragon Spirit. I expanded the thread to the more general topic because it could be interesting.
Anyway, today I picked up Dragon Spirit for NES even though I already have the TG-16 version. Normally I don't get more than one version of any game unless I absolutely love it but it was cheap so I figured why not. It controls a littler better, has more levels & cinematics between them but I do love the way TG-16 games look & sound. Are both worth keeping or should one just be weeded from the library?
This is a thread for retro games you hated playing back in the day, but upon retrying them you find you enjoy them now.
For me it is Ocarina of Time. I couldn't get past how it looked like dogshit initially and felt so sluggish in movement. Now though I can appreciate the level of subtle details in the game as well as the fun dungeons.
Zelda 2. I first played it in 2004 shortly after playing a ton of Zelda 1 and loving it (on Animal Crossing GC, used Action Replay to unlock all of the NES games and proceeded to play those more than the actual game, it was what springboarded me into getting an NES a year later). Zelda 2 was really odd to me, and I didn't really understand the game at all.
It took until my 10th time (at least) trying the game to really get it, that was about October of 2012 or so. Finally beat it a few years later, and I can say it's one of my favorite Zeldas as well as one... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Diddy kong racing. I got my N64 + games used back around 98 or 99 or so, and that was one of the games I received, along with Turok 2, some sports shit, and extreme G.
I played DDR, but I never really appreciated it because I wanted to own those *real* N64 games like Mario Kart 64, Donkey Kong 64, Super Mario 64, Zelda OOT, etc. But looking back, it was a very fun and damn unique cart racer that IMO is better than MK64.
Always thought Turok 2 was baller as fuck though. Bewareoblivionisathand
Gotta be Dragon Warrior. That was babby's first RPG, and I tried so damn hard to love it as a kid, but it was nothing but endless frustration and annoyance for me. I remember being especially pissed off about having to go through menus just to open doors, and how frequent the battles were. Shit like that. I just didn't get how RPGs worked at the time, and didn't have the patience for them yet.
Years later, DW was the first game I ever emulated. It was definitely antiquated, but it was still enjoyable to just sit down and experience the game that really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2921847 >I find myself having to take on one group of enemies at a time, then run back to find somewhere to rest or go back to temple to cure disease/poison. Yeah, that's how it starts. It will be a while until you have some real firepower.
PROTIP: Take advantage of being able to dodge arrows and shit in real-time and kite enemies while shooting at them.
Who in their right mind thought this game was a good idea? Did anybody on /vr/ actually enjoy this steaming pile of shit, or even manage to complete it without extensively consulting a guide?
I don't even know where to begin.
Instead of exploring an open-world like you do in SF1, you progress through a series of chapters that span several decades. Once you enter a chapter, you're locked in. There's no backing out. If you selected a chapter that's too difficult for your party to handle at their current level, then you're screwed and likely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Points of no return appear in the most arbitrary spots. Backtrack one screen? The chapter inexplicably ends before you had a chance to grind or pick up any treasures. Advance one screen? Suddenly you're trapped in a new location and simply aren't allowed to backtrack through the open pathway that you just stumbled through, which is still visibly open.
The game often strands you in locations that don't permit you any access to shops, inns or other... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I was a Nintendo 64 kid and I missed out on the original PlayStation's library, so I've been trying to get caught up. How is Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver? I've heard it described as a more mature Ocarina of Time, and from videos of it, it seems like God of War before God of War was a thing.
>>2921775 >it seems like God of War before God of War was a thing That's not too far off actually (assuming you mean "puzzle game masquerading as an action game"), though Soul Reaver's story is miles ahead of GoW's garbage.
So, I got a pic related at long last (I basically skipped that entire generation of consoles) and I'm wondering what I should play. I've already got Parasite Eve and Wild 9, and I have a stack of 99 Taiyo Yuden CD-R's ready to burn. It's been modchipped. I've only got 99 because I was missing disc 2 of parasite eve.
Besides the obvious "Symphony of the Night" and "Final Fantasy 7" and maybe "Tomb Raider II", which games should I play? What are your favorites?
Threads like these are never really useful, because the only replies you'll get are indiscriminate lists of AAA titles, without any explanation as to why those particular games are recommended, or what they're even about.
>What should I play?
You should have asked, "WHY should I play your recommended games? Tell me more about them."
