I literally don't understand how anyone could hate ff6, it's a true masterpiece in storytelling, music, sprite work, and game play.
It's my favorite Final Fantasy game, but the releases before the GBA ones were fundamentally broken, it's still easy to hate Nintendo, and it's not their first Final Fantasy game. I wouldn't call a video game a masterpiece of storytelling. As for music and spritework, Symphony of the Night called.
All games have flaws even if minor or relatively unimportant. All people have different taste and might not see what you see in something.
My favorite game is earthbound, I get why lots of people wouldn't like it. I just accept it.
What's the best way to emulate? I just want to play retro games and I'm not interested in collecting at all. How can one achieve as little input lag as possible through emulation and the us of LCDs?
I mostly agree with this, but any time I try emulating Super Mario World I always notice a delay between pressing a button and the action happening on-screen. It never seems to be an issue with any other game...
You guys realize that the ROM chips used in NES cartridges only have an expected data retention of ~80 years, right?
All authentic NES games will die within your lifetime.

What am I in for? Is it s good as people make it out to be?
It's long and very grindy and slow paced, but it looks nice and has decent music. The characters are alright if a little boring and the storyline is very somber and kind of anxious and depressing and not fun at all. Mechanically you have a lot of content with all these masters and dragon forms and the gene system, and about 90% of it is completely unnecessary and adds absolutely nothing to the actual combat except for more poorly balanced mostly graphical content.
Breath of Fire 4 is better in literally every way.
Faggot here, what makes pic related so bad?
- Story is very confusing and relies too heavily on implications and foreshadowing.
- Game is ridiculously unbalanced and breaking it is trivial
- A lot of plot points seem to be complete ass-pulls, and several are actual ass-pulls. A plot device relating to amnesia is a complete asspull unless you read a rather out-of-the-way terminal's data.
- The characters are pretty meh as well.
So it's a shoddy story and trivial gameplay.
For the first time ever I am emulating an arcade game, Tetris the Grandmaster
Is it degenerate to play this game with a PS3 D-pad? Does playing this game with an arcade stick make that big of a difference? I'm not going to buy an arcade stick for a single game, I am just curious if anyone here has played a TGM game the fundamental way.
This has also opened up my interest in other arcade games that I have missed out on.

Haven't drawn in a while, so I'm kind of rusty, and the best cure is to draw draw draw. Join in and drop a request or two, I'll be fulfilling as many as I can for a couple of hours.
My parent's wanted an NES Mini for Christmas, and I know all about Nintendo's shipping "shortages" and scalpers and all that nonsense.
I told her about making one myself with every game using the Retropie/Raspberry Pi.
So far, I'm doing alright: I got the parts, got RetroPie loaded, installed a bunch of ROMs on the thing.
There's one problem though: all these ROMs have filenames like "Super Mario Bros 3 (U) (a1) [!]" in them, and thusly, all the lists of names have all the shitty (U)[!](1.01) shit in them too. Very unclean.

I just hit "All ROMs". Prooooooobably could have saved some time by not doing that, but still, question remains why are so many entries coming up as "hash not found" or "image: unknown format"?
I got these ROM collections from piratebay, which I know shouldn't be the best way, but it was the only way I knew how other than to spend hours upon hours downloading individual ones from emuparadise or someshit.
OK, maybe I'm losing my fucking marbles here, but I could have SWORN that when I was a kid that I did the Lete River Exploit for FF3 SNES withOUT a turbo controller.
It's like 15 years later and I'm trying to cheat by leaving this bitch on overnight and I can't do it because when I get the "Which way?" prompt holding down the A button won't push "Up"
call me old fashioned, I just can't play these old classics on a keyboard. and if i'm gonna shell out money for a USB SNES controller I might as well shell out the same amount of money for a turbo controller, right?
Uncommon SNES Recommendations
Id like to hear some of your suggestions for awesome SNES games that arent super mainstream.
Played through this game again last night. Great level, great theme.
Do we know for sure how much more powerful the PS2 was than the Dreamcast?
The Dreamcast seems like such an amazing machine, but it feels stuck between N64 and PS2 in my opinion. Is there anything on Dreamcast that really makes you question how much it can do compared to the PS2?
Shenmue is out since it's a tiny room game where small sections load at a time instead of massive areas.
>Yu Suzuki went on record to claim that the PS2 could never run Shenmue II without downgrades.
Regardless of the respect I have for the man, I can't exactly take the word of somebody who's entire career up to that point has been near exclusively on sega based devices.

This year, /vr/ is going camping with /out/.
We are not taking part in the Wacky Races, as far as I know.
We have yet to decide what we will wear.
We have yet to decide where we will be staying, ideally some-where with an outlet for us to charge out games.
What games are we bringing?
Seems like the drawfags have lost their love for Tre/vr/ even though he was a favorite just 18 months ago. Times change - must be all the /v/ cancer shitting everything up.
Jesus tap dancing christ. I played Ages hard back in 2002 and never touched it since finishing it and I had forgotten the layouts of the dungeons and puzzles and jesus fucking christ what the fuck. I have not been this god damn stumped since the Ice Dungeon in ALttP.
God fuck I never played Seasons because I got so burnt out on Zelda because of Ages.
And fuck that "rhythm" goron part.
>Jabu Jabu's belly
I remember that shit in OOT. I remember thinking "I can't wait to get out of this weird place and get to that next dungeon". Then, about halfway through it dawned on me that this was the next dungeon. Was not happy.
>go on /vr/
>no mortal kombat thread
I am disappoint.
Mortal Kombat 2 is the best game in the franchise.
If you disagree fight me irl.
It is supremely comfy.
I was shit at the game, but I mained Shang Tsung. I might not have won many fights, but I nailed every transformation and lost looking like a boss.
There are still videos without any subtitle about Dendy but all the guys who did the Spanish and English subtitles for his old videos have moved with their lives. There is also a lot of let's plays of just him with his bydlo buddies playing in his kitchen which does not need much to figure out. Some of them are pretty fun in small doses like playing a shit ass translation of Silent Hill from start to finish. I feel we are missing out on more than his videos by the language barrier. I would love to hear more about...

The legendary dildo sword is found
Just discovered it and enjoying every second. Am I a casual for doing this?
I'm thinking of getting some sort of dedicated emulation device, just so I can have something permanently plugged into my tv.
I want something small that can emulate up to PS1, Dreamcast as well would be nice, I'm not sure how much further of a stretch that is though and isn't essential.
Would a mini-itx be my best option? What would the bare minimum requirements in terms of processing power be to run these emulators reasonably accurately, minimal lag is also important to me.
You're best bet is ATX or maybe Micro-ATX. Mini-ITX or Mini-STX are castrated.
More processing power is better for more accurate emulation and stuff like (software) rendering in higher resolutions. Even the cheapest desktop CPUs will suffice for basic things.
Most of the computers I've put together uses full sized cases, since I am always concerned about cooling and/or noise reduction. I'd like to read about your results and what you use for your dedicated emulation computer (and the costs). I see so many Raspberry Pi threads here on /vr/ and I am so jealous of people able to build awesome emulation machines with it: https://youtu.be/dV-W23lONI4

So I have roller coaster tycoon 2 but the disc is way too goddamn scratched for this shit to install.
What kind of workarounds can I do? I wanna play this shit so bad, it's one of my favorites from when I was a little autistic spaz.
Should i buy one of these?
I really want to kill myself right now
howabout you play something a little less halfassed
To be fair, it was an early game. But yeah, pretty crappy. I don't mind difficulty, but the slow as hell move speed and "you need to be on the outermost pixel of the platform in order to clear this" jumps are rather irritating and at times makes it less reaction based and more pure memorization.
I'm trying to play them in release order (barring ports/remakes) and stupid fucking adventure is the only thing in between me and 3, which looks to be like 1 but better. And 1 has been my favorite so far.
Hey guys, I spent all night googling snes vertical scrolling shoot em' ups.
I've been looking for a space themed game similar to Galaga. I've scowered through lists and can't seem to see any screenshots of what I might've seen as a kid.
ANYTHING helps.. cheers.
Try this, OP:
GameFAQs lets you browse by console + genre + sub-genre, although I didn't see any sub-genre for vertical / horizontal on that particular platform.
>I've been looking for a space themed game similar to Galaga.
Hey guys, I'm looking for a fighting game, it was martial arts themed and had a guy in a karate gi that could shoot fireballs.
Looking to get a Saturn as I've never owned/played one before. Which model is ideal?
My options are model 1/2 U.S or the model 1/2 Japanese ones.
I will be using action replay to play imports. Is there any difference between these models in their performance?
Just find a working one, doesn't matter which model or region, with action replay cart you can play games from any region.
Just make sure you get model 2/japanese controllers. Avoid US model 1 controllers unless you really like it for some reason.
What was their problem?
What retro games would you consider your favorite for their atmosphere?
Pic related. I loved KF's dark, muddy visuals. The atmosphere created a persistent sense of impending danger. Of course, given the number of lava pits, bottomless drop-offs and pitch-black chasms everywhere, the danger was very much real.
You would prob like Echo Night OP, it's a first person adventure game also by From Soft, even runs in the same engine as KF.
