I started playing Final Fantasy VII once but I couldn't get into the combat system. I'm thinking about playing it now, but if I still don't like it I'm wondering if it's worth cheating my way through to see the story. Is it good enough for that?
>>2847624 Well, it is a classic, so I want to know if I should play it just to have experienced it. On the PS4 port I understand that you can refill your heath whenever you want. I want to know if the story is worth playing through like that.
What is it with emulation that made it go increasingly complex as the time went on? I remember downloading zsnes and playing roms in 1998. Now to get an emulator with all those fancy crt and scanline effects to work you have to look through almost 100 blogs and follow a trail of breadcrumbs to get some monstrosity that barely works.
>>2847129 Yeah OK but, actually I should rephrase my OP, the thing is there don't seem to have been any real fundamental game mechanic innovations in the genre since this game. I mean, are people really sufficiently aware of this? It really doesn't reflect very well on game developers, does it? Why is it so hard to introduce real fundamental innovations to this genre? Why does it seem like reviewers constantly talk about games as if they do so anyways? I guess that's sort of what I want to discuss.
>>2847139 I guess because gaming as a medium is iterative, so there's only so many truely innovative ideas that break the mold, so most games take mechanics that exist and try to either improve them, or expand them
I fucking love pinball. Playing Pokemon Pinball on my GBC was a lot of fun and actually taught me a lot about how to hit specific targets on a cabinet! The city I live in has a lot of pinball cabinets around so whenever I'm bored I can just throw a few quarters in and play. Pic related, my fucking favorite
If I had the game bit screwer, I'd do it, it's pretty easy and batteries are cheap.
So far my Metroid II, Wario Land and Pokemon Gold batteries all died. Metroid II and Wario died recently, Pokemon Gold died a long time ago, but it's a known fact batteries for Gold and Silver all died prematurely.
