Board: /vr/

"/vr/ - Retro Games" is 4chan's imageboard for discussing retro console video games and classic arcade games.

↑↑↓↓←→←→ BA START
triforce
This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

About Mother 1/ Earthbound Beginnings or Zero. What is the best version to play, the GBA port with the old fantranslation or the "older" official shelved version? I am not unfamiliar with NES JRPGs, so difficulty or tedium isn't an issue for me.

>literally, and I cannot stress this enough, LITERALLY, the same game every single time
Why do shmupfags act superior to fans of platformers, fighting games and even the dreaded jarpig in spite of this?
Furthermore, why do coomlectors blow at least 100 on every generic 5th-gen/DC shmup, especially considering the best game in the genre (Touhou) is absolutely free?

I miss the days before the Aeon Genesis release of SMT: If...

It was just nice having something to look forward to, and that Ghidion would take the bait on asking him when it'd be done made it twice as fun.

Now that it's out, it's just so, bleh. The proto-persona vibe is neat, but honestly I'd rather Ghidion had trashed If... and continued with the NES game translation. Shame we'll never see that in English thanks to the godawful SNES remakes.

Also, SMT general.

n64-hori-mini-pad-official-n64-controller-comparison
What is the best N64 controller option? The originals? Steel Sticks? Retro-Bit Tribute 64s? Hyperkin Admirals? Retro Fighters Brawlers? Hori Mini Pads? RaphNet adapters?

A lot of time and research has gone into N64 controllers, yet 20+ years later there's still no cut and dry answer it seems. Personally I'm okay with the shape and feel of everything, but the sticks are very inconsistent, and a reliable solution would make the play experience more enjoyable.

finalfantasy4
First time ever playing a Final Fantasy game, and it is a translation of the original FFIV release in Japan. But, desu, it is kinda hard to take the story seriously when SO MANY fantasy and mythological elements exist in the story.

It's like tv show True Blood when it first came out, it was sooo cool with vampires n; shit then all of a sudden they started introducing werewolves, pixies, fairies, shape-shifters. It ruined the plausability of the already fictitious universe the story is taking place in. It pushes the limits of suspension of disbelief.

Like, for all I know, a freaking unicorn is going to pop out of nowhere at the end of the story, resurrect everyone in the name of friendship and save the day.

TL;DR What the fuck were they thinking?

Amiga 500, the machine that turns dreams into reality
dream
Personally for me I feel the Amiga 500 was the crown jewel of computer gaming machines, it sold a ton of units, it has a gigantic game library and it produced some of the best demo's and cracktro's ever seen, it really was a wonderful machine and magical time owning one back in the late 80's (I still have mine ).

My question however is just how good was this machine, could it really produce vertually arcade perfect conversions depending on the game.
We've had some cracking conversions on it such as Operation Thunderbolt, Rainbow Islands, Rodland, Ghosts 'n goblins, Pang just to name a few but what about all the dreadful conversions we were given (many at the hands of U.S.Gold), could they have been converted better with the hardware the Amiga 500 had to offer epsecially with 1 mb?!

I personally would like to see if the Amiga could convert the likes of Street Fighter 1, Double Dragon and Outrun but could the Amiga 500 get close?! I'm sure it could certainly get closer than the crud we were given.

It still is an amazing machine. Sometimes revisiting old things isn't a good idea, but now that I have my hands on an Amiga 500 again, I'm astonished at how it holds up. And mine (as was back in the day) is stock other than a 512k upgrade.

The games are fluid and fun, and I've not even got back into the production side of things yet.

Show me a games console from the late 80's/early 90's that allow you to make your own graphics, music, sound, animations, games.

Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko
gex
1999 was an insane year for collectathons you had Donkey Kong 64, Croc 2, Spyro, Rayman 2 but one game always has just stuck out to me, Gex 3. Gex 3 is one unlike any other for example, mario 64, don’t get me wrong it’s a great game but think of the levels; mainly mountains and other nature themed areas with simply objectives of getting stars or racing. In Gex 3 the levels are so much more varied one second you’re going through a fuckin anime level then a greek mythology level and then yeah you’re a fucking pirate. Western, army, mystery, fucking ancient egypt and a few more. Yet despite these levels being so varied it never feels directionless like they didn’t know a theme to go for, it all feels cohesive and the world map is essentially a level in and of itself with secrets and collectables just to give the game more content and you actually want to collect the fly coins and the secret coins to unlock more levels. I’ll admit the shortcomings are mainly the camera and lack of varied movement but I think the simple run, jump, and tail whip attack are just all you need for a blast of a platformer. Gex handles very well and probably my favorite of this era, the camera never needs much input from the player and the movement with the playstation dpad is just amazing and feels great, you don’t want to play this with a stick you need to use a dpad it’s fluid as hell. The objectives in each level are great too and they perfectly compliment Gex’s movement, it’s more than getting to point a to b like in mario, as do a race or blast this wall. In Gex you’re doing actual levels each time and at the end you feel like you know this world like the back of your dick because you’ve been exploring all it’s had to offer. It’s a very linear experience you get the objectives and you win but isn’t that what games are? It essentially could just be a 2D platformer as the only 3D thing about the game is well the fact it’s three dimensional but

Jabu Jabu Fan Theory
IMG_5555
I recently played through Ocarina of Time and I realized something. I figured something out about Jabu Jabu, which changes the whole tone of the game, for me anyway.
I had just gotten inhaled by Jabu Jabu when it hit me. When Jabu Jabu had Link inside his mouth, he also had Link's dick and balls in his mouth. Having a dick and balls in your mouth makes you gay. So I'm 99% certain Jabu Jabu is a fag whale, which pretty much ruined the game for me. I was so disgusted I threw the game in the garbage.

I'm honestly just angry about the fact my childhood wasn't as good as the average japanese or american kid. Even third world shitskins had a better childhood than me with their famiclones, I had to settle for horrible arcade ports done by amateur 13 year olds on the Spectrum. But I have ingrained nostalgia for it. I have ingrained nostalgia for shit. And am conditioned to hate anything Nintendo by default, preventing me from honestly enjoying some games from developers I like, such as Capcom and Konami, just because they're on Nintendo hardware.
I hate being me. I hate being british.

Boxes
Silly question: Which size of game boxes do you prefer? I do think that big boxes and long CD cases are cool, but I hardly have any free space for them, so I would probably choose something really small like the Famicom game boxes.

mario3
The world is map is objectively the worst part of mario 3 and world and heres why. It’s essentially padding and a super glorified world map. Sure in mario 3 it serves the purpose of being a weird board game with mini games and stuff in between but those mini games are things completely unrelated to mario, a good way to fix this would be to replace the match games and the same repetitive hammer bros game with platforming sections testing your skill, this not only compliments the actual game but fits. In world there’s just no excuse, secrets and hidden levels can be done in a way like mario 1 where you find the secret and you just go to it. For star road you find the hidden exit and get to play that level, simply as is. There is no reason to take you out of the game for a world map to play the game it’s just needless and is anything took the devs time to implement a changing overworld and make all of those sprites to fufill the purpose of looking nice. All it is is a menu with a mario skin over it and it just rubs me the wrong way. The world maps in these games also show a turning point in the design philosophy of these games, they were obviously becoming more for everyone and more accessible and a world map allowing you to save progress and have a hub to be in is a clear example of this. But the thing is the fact it’s meant for everyone doesn’t mean they have to make the game worse because of it, the game shouldn’t suffer because it wants to be more marketable and it’s just kinda bullshit.

SNES BOF THREAD
download
Bof1 came out on switch some time ago and I've been seeing a lot of people discovering and enjoying it!

It was my baby first jRPG and I tought that I only liked it so much because of nostalgia googles, but with this new phenomena, we can agree that for a barebones turn-your-brain-off weeb jRPG, Bof1 aged very well.

Like, the second maybe has a good story but the Repelent item not working is just a massive blow to it's gameplay.

And thinking back to it, they implemented some metroidvania elements in BoF1 very well, I must say.

I've been expanding my Game Boy collection in preparation for the release of the Analogue Pocket, and I am wondering if it would be wise for me to just preemptively remove the old batteries inside of each cartridge, even if they're still saving? I have copies of the Oracle games from back when I was a child that are still saving, but I assume this won't last for much longer, but I'm technically incompetent and just wanted to make sure this would be wise before I start figuring out how to solder.

This is genuinely one of the most passionate and soul-filled games I've ever played. Everything about it is top notch, and there's no wonder to how it still has managed to have an impact on people all these years later. I think if I had to take one specific game as an example for "fun", it would have to be this.
