Reminder that there are very retarded point and click autists that don't like Grim Fandango just because of how it controls -- y'know, completely forgetting the brilliant writing, setting, graphics, style, music, etc
These people make me ashamed to be a fan of the same genre
They also randomly seem to hate Myst for some reason. Maybe Myst commercialized the genre in a way that hadn't been seen before, and I assume for an adventure game fan popular=bad
The Japanese counterpart to the NES Mini was revealed today. Video, screenshots and information about how it works is available here: https://topics.nintendo.co.jp/c/article/d2923b54-8552-11e6-9b38-063b7ac45a6d.html
It looks like the controllers are stuck inside the box (like the original Famicom).
Games included are the following (30 total): Super Mario Brothers Mario Brothers Donkey Kong Ice Climber Excite Bike Rockman 2 Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari Balloon Fight Yie-Ar Kung Fu Pac-Man Makai Mura Gradius Solomon no Kagi Tsuppari... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What is with the "oot is the best zelda AND game in general of all time" meme? A Link to the Past is better in every way - it is nice and balanced, it doesn't get fucking boring as shit, and it's crisp, 2D graphics will always look better than oot's awkward 3D.
Also, besides having a superior story, alttp has way better music too - oot has such an unbearable shitty-midi tier soundtrack.
Maybe I'm just weird, but why are people so nostalgia blinded by oot?
>>3540525 Not everyone is exactly the same. I played LA first and like WW the best, but as a rule of thumb it seems to be the case. A shit ton of people had OOT as one of their first great video game experiences so it's going to stand out.
>>3517138 If it's his first time playing, it's probably going to take him a while before he can even easily locate and get to the rainbow worlds and back, stunning aliens is worth it until then I'd say; there are enough of them around in the early systems to make it worthwhile, to a point.

(Note: This applies to action oriented games, number and point system games like pure RPGs have their own issues but they're not the purpose of this rant.)
I often see retro games being disparaged by people these days. I read things that talk about how the lives and game over systems were flawed, that the character movement sucks just to make games harder, and that one can “build a good difficult game without those archaic systems.”
Let me start off; just because you pirated or bought a game, just because... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>3527635 What then is the point of playing something you KNOW you'll succeed in? There's an old Twilight Zone episode where a criminal goes to the afterlife thinking it's heaven. He is given anything and everything he wants and he cannot fail at anything—especially his favorite pastime, gambling.. Clearly he's not in heaven—after months upon years of nothing but success he spirals into ennui and depression; there's no challenge in anything, his own personal hell is immense boredom.

>>3527638 Now you don't have to love every old title. But at least give them your time before you pass judgment; especially if you feel like you want to like it. Shmups are a genre I often see people wanting to love but they feel they can't handle. Just play the game, play it and remember that failures as much a part of why you're enjoying the game as succeeding. You'll get better once you truly start feeling the game and it becomes natural to you.
>>3539168 Because Sega fans on this board tended to be older anons. This board has been bleeding older anons for the past few months now as the underages continue to flock here from their favorite youtube channels. From my count, pretty much just the penguinposter and like 8 other anons are left of the old guard.
>>3539168 Because Sega is the Kelly Bundy of video games. She was the first to wear a mini skirt to school, first to wear hooker heels, first to give a handy, and even the first to date a guy with a car. Now that she's a little older, everyone else is doing the same, but nastier and poor Kelly is always in jail because she's constantly making dumbfuck decisions. I love Sega, but a lot of the criticism is well deserved.
Does this image make you mad?? No trolling, legit quesyion. This is my shelf I built to display my games that i love. That I PLAY, all the time. Ive been collecting stuff and holding on to it since I was about 5, I'm 29 now and everything I've gotten since I started heavily collecting (around 19/20) was picked up dirt cheap. When prices were low, Some of you collectors remember that shit. It was great, now everyone is a fucking greedy shit ball.
Sure you want most the games on my shelf. Sure I've taken them off the market. No I can't play every game... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>3530651 You don't want to pay the prices collectors have set, get you think collectors are asses who should sell you a great game for no more than $5. Makes no sense. If you give a fuck about playing the game and enjoying it, emulating it should please you, especially at price.
No, if I have stuff I don't want i like to trade with other collectors. Recently traded cib einhander for ps2 Trapt, huge profit margin lost, who cares I picked it up for cheap... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The loose SNES and Genesis carts being slanted kinda bothers me. There's a couple bagged NES games, can't see their titles. The NES area looks really well made, it looks like you've got thin slats running under each row to make pulling the games out easier. The boxed Genesis games are displayed well.
Close-up of the PS1 games area? Looks like you have a ton. Pics of a PS2 section?
>Haggar was made first >SF2 uses a Haggar donut steel that copies his moves >they explain it away by saying Zangief was "inspired" by seeing Haggar fight as if this somehow makes it ok >25 years later and Haggar is still not in SF
Why does Capcom hate Haggar? Why didn't they just use him in SF2 to begin with?
It's honestly probably sephiroth, he is the offspring of a galactic terror that is most comparable to the thing, and ends up merging with aspects of the planet/lifestream. So dangerous the planet itself creates super weapons to purge itself of him and it still didn't work.
I wish the game was more about jenova though and not what is essentially her corpse. She's basically dead and she still wields that much influence and power
So I want to give the PS1 Parasite Eve games a go. I'm not generally very good at JRPs so I was wondering how difficult the original game is. I read that PEII plays more like a traditional survival horror game.
>>3529567 The first game isn't very hard unless you go to the optional areas, and it gets easier if you explore thoroughly and find items around the maps.
One thing that makes it a lot easier is if you spend your bonus points to increase Aya's turn speed (I think it's called something like Active Time in this game?) For some reason every level up she gets +10 points to all her stats which usually levels them up once, but if her stat costs less than 10 points to level next, the extra points are wasted. Her...

it's generally fine but the difficulty spikes pretty hard during the endgame. just don't fuck up the crafting. it's pretty easy to build a good go-to weapon, then proceed to ruin it with a retarded tweak. there's a lot of exotic weapons towards the end, and it's easy to fuck up your endgame when you're down to shitty ass weapons
