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, including consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games. Retro gaming means platforms launched in 2001 and earlier, and official game titles for those platforms released no later than December 2007 (homebrew console games made after this date will be permitted). The Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Game Boy Advance, and Sony PlayStation 2 will now be considered "retro".

How do you run your old PC games? Are you lucky/autistic enough to have dedicated and deprecated hardware to run it on? Have you got lucky with any VMs or virtualization?

Anybody else think PVM users might as well just get an OSSC and play on a flat panel?
Modern TVs are below 1 frame input lag. CRTs are an aesthetic choice now. The choice is that you want to play the games in the same way the developer expected them to be played, on the same kind of display people played the game on when it came out- Or even what you yourself played it on.
No one played games on a PVM with razor sharp pixels and scan lines. In the discussion of an authentic experience, I don't see how it's any more authentic than playing on a flat screen TV with a lagless converter. You're still using technology no one played games on until a few years ago, it just happens to be technology that's older than that application

Has anyone made a perfect clone of Wavebirds? I'm amazed at how perfectly lagless they are, the only thing I don't like is that they don't have the original GameCube controller shell, but I know there are mods to get that done.

previous thread >>7828978

This thread is for the spirited discussion of CRT displays - Televisions, monitors and projectors used for the playing of retro games!

>Try to keep it /vr/-related: Nothing past 5th gen(+Dreamcast). Slight OT might be okay if related to CRTs (E.G. 16:9 compatible models, flatscreens, etc.) Systems with backwards compatibility are also pretty safe territory, assuming you're focusing on the older games. PC CRTs are also a-ok.
>Produce OC! Get out your real cameras and take beautiful pictures of your CRTs displaying recognizable characters with the kind of beautiful accuracy that brings tears to the eyes of young and old alike! If you take 100 photos, at least one of them will turn out alright! (maybe)
>Try to be as detailed as possible when asking info on a specific model. As always, google is your friend, and we are your friends with benefits. Older archived threads aren't a bad place to look either.
>Share appreciation for others choice of technology and personal philosophy of gaming. As always show courtesy in your discussion and moderate yourselves first.

Discussion of video processing and scaling devices is okay, but try to keep the focus on CRTs and CRT accessories

beyond
Beyond the Beyond is probably the worst game on the PS1. Considering it's the only thing Camelot Software ever released on the system and how deep in bed they were with Sega I'm wondering if it was some kind of scheme to deliberately release the worst thing imaginable and turn people off the PlayStation altogether.

Can we get a Dragon Quest thread going? I just finished IV on the NES for the first time and damn, it just may be one of the most perfect RPGs of that era. III is probably richer in terms of gameplay, but something about the way IV's world and narrative is constructed is very cool and downright experimental for the time. And that final fight against Necrosaro is legendary.

Pokemon is a disappointing game
black fog
NO IT'S NOT.
Pokemon is not a good series, not then, not now.

If anyone else tried to pull the shit they did under another name, the reviewers would go after them
with such further they would have been obliterated around the third gen where it was clearly evident
>invisible stats dictate the meta game
One has to constantly breed over and over to get the right ivs/natures and fight one type of enemy to get the right
EVS. To top that off, one has to repeat this process 6-30 to have a viable roster, no one should have to do that in order to get some good battles.

>Every human character has the personality of a wet towel
Don't deny this, none of these character stand out whatsoever, it's so bad that fans are mostly going off of made up head cannon and bs non existent lore


>Lack luster graphics
The first two gens were excusable given the hardware and the fact that gen 1 had some really tight constraints
but afterward, not so much.
They had static sprites in the 3rd gen till 5th while the competition had fully animated over-world and battle sprites.
To add insult to injury another developer at a studio of the same caliber produced several games with all Pokemon at the time
with full battle animations, overworld sprites, and better overworld buildings.


>3D wise they recycled the same models from N64 till Wii, and more recently reused the same models since 2010.
Imagine if Mario,Link or any other series did that, people would be calling for heads on pikes!

>It's been the same game since 1996
It's just a bunch of patches each and every game. It's never a full overall.


Honestly there is nothing good about this rot, greater game studios have fallen, yet game freak lives on.
Alpha Dream got shut down last month.


Fan artist, and fan programmers have made better games with better premises than the main series
THAT'S FUCKING EMBRASSING!

Has there every been a better final fantasy made by fans?
Better Zelda?
Better star ocean?
Better Mario rpg
Better Mana?

Monster Rancher 2

With all due respect to Digimon, Monster Rancher 2 was easily the deepest and one of the most immersive monster raising games. If you enjoy monster taming or raising you owe it to yourself to experience. Bonus if you get the actual disc for PlayStation, because you get new monsters by reading CDs. (Work arounds available in emulation). It's also a pretty compelling fascimile of being a Horse Breeder/Trainer. Anyone want to discuss this underrated masterpiece?

awakening_3
When I see pics of older games like this pic, I feel good
I feel like I'm in peace, and not just for games I played, also for ones I didn't, which I then plan to play

I get none of that vibe on most of the new games
Which I call soulless and I feel many players nowadays don't understand what I mean when I say that
I often refer to them as having different tastes or just plain bad taste when they find an ugly soulless game "pretty"

Is it me?
Is that a bias?
Is that because I'm getting older?
or does retro games truly have this vibe that can only exist when the graphics are exactly like they were during the 90s/early 00s?
I'm tempted to think the later
This is not nostalgia because if it was the case I would label as "good" every old games I played, which I'm not

Legend_of_Zelda_NES
What was it like playing the original Legend of Zelda like for the first time in 1987? Not sure if there are any older anons left here that can give a first-hand account, but I would love to hear what it was like to see such a large world contained in a video game for the first time. Was it as mind-bending as the transition from 2D to 3D?

Goldeneye and Perfect Dark fags need not apply. Even Halo CE is trash compares to this series. Timesplitters is so fucking good it's ridiculous, and if you haven't played these games you're doing yourself a huge disservice.

GBARunner
VID_20210615_184025241
What are your thoughts on the GBArunner hypervisor?
I recently discovered it, tried on DSiXL and i think it's one of the best way to play gba games.
You have a big , backlit, 1:1 pixel perfect screen and very little input lag added (compared to emulators).
Sometimes accuracy is not the best and can produce funny results as in this webm: on original hw the game slows down during the explosion.
If you are looking for a GBA IPS mod and have a DSI lying around, i suggest to give it a shot first.

Warioland3
This game sucks. They gut Wario's moveset from 2 (including basic platformer stuff like jumping able to break bricks or being able to swim) so they can give it back to you as unlocks, and you have to got back and forth between levels on a chain of unlocks instead of starting each level with what you need to do and get to explore freely. Plus the new transformations are mostly useless or redundant with only vampire and Snowball being worth remembering.

Snowboard Kids was better than Mario Kart 64

The music was phenomenal, the tricks the kids do are a joy to pull off, and the levels just have more “soul” in them. I don’t know. If it wasn’t called “Mario” kart it wouldn’t even be remembered in my opinion.

I have never seen anybody mention this game, ever. It's basically Warcraft 3 for retards but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't one of the funnest RTS games I've ever played. Really great atmosphere, calm ambient music and a surprisingly good story. Emulates perfectly on PCSX2, also.

They don’t make the Namco Museum games like they used to. Walking around what felt like an actual museum and interactive exhibits in the ps1 games gave more immersion as opposed to the later titles that just throws a menu at you. Tl;dr the older titles had more effort put into them.

What's the point of these faggots' website? Pointing out that stuff exists? Because any useful archive that actually has dumps also does the same thing. They don't even list the contents of the discs. Why is there a dump set named after them if they admit they don't actually archive anything of value and the actual goods are found elsewhere?
Yeah, thanks for telling me this obscure disc that virtually nobody has exists somewhere in the world, and not dumping it. Very "useful".
