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.

Why the FUCK was this never succesfully copied? Nobody even TRIED it.

There are GTA clones. There are Pokemon clones. There are Diablo clones. Hell Stardew is a Harvest moon clone. But there are almost no Ocarina clones, the best game ever made.

A game which shamelessly copied it but of course with new lore and assets would be quaranteed to be a cash printing machine.

amiga-commodore-a500
Why Amiga fandom/fanbase is the most obnoxious, loudmouthed, narcissistic bunch of oldfags within all the gaming/hardware fandoms out there? I'm was seeing this back in the 90s and I still see it to this day, people that spent a lot of money on a sub-par IBM PC rip-off try to not only convince, but force the rest that only AMIGA is worth anything. You gotta do some research on their John Carmack hate and their 25+ years (and counting) efforts to port DOOM on Amiga, holy shit you're in for an absolute autist treat. Is it because Amiga was directed mainly at poor European market? You'd be surprised at how many people use these old junks for document formatting or video editing today. Hell, I remember visiting a local radio/press station in 2005 and all that those fuckers had were 12+ year old Amigas. Of course the media output was ridiculously outdated but every time you tried to talk to them about PCs or new design strategies/programs they literally started to act out so actively aggressive like if they had a real emotional connection to their machine. Amiga fandom across Europe is also the only one that actively sabotages its own fandom and is radically insular about any "newcomers" (if you weren't born in the early 70s you weren't "at the time to experience Amiga" and emulators doesn't count). Why's that so?

ITT: /vr/ games that were graphically ahead of their time
12023-ingame-Tekken-3
Tekken 3, and to a lesser extent Ridge Racer 4, look like early PS2 games in many respects.
Also lots of Rare's N64 games starting with Banjo-Kazooie look like they could be really early PS2 games if only the framerates were smoother.
Battletoads with it's parallax scrolling and impressive use of the NES color palette could pass for an early Genesis title.
And don't even get me started on the pixel art of most of the major SNES titles after 1994. Yoshi's Island, Chrono Trigger, the DKC trilogy, Mega Man 7, X2 and X3, Kirby Super Star and DL3, Mario RPG, etc.
Any other retro games whose graphics were really good to the extent they could be mistaken for early next-gen games?

Looking for horror games
2895048-308523_front
I'm in the mood for horror titles and wonder if anyone has any recommendations. They can't be obvious horror recommendations like Silent Hill 1, Resident Evil 1 to CV, or Night Trap. It has to be more obscure, like Ugetsu Kitan(PS1 horror click adventure), while not being goofy horror(Decap attack, Splatter house)
Also asking if there's any good ones on these systems:
>SNES(Already know Clock Tower before anyone says it)
>Genesis
>Sega CD
>PC-Engine
>PS1
>NES
Also if you know any Japan only horror, do recommend them since the language barrier isn't a problem for me.

Cheat codes.
You probably did it at one time in your life, infinite ammo, unlimited lives, invulnerability, level select, even goofy shit like paintball mode or big head mode.

What's your favorite way of entering cheats? Do you prefer the main menu button combo signified by a jingle, menu tricks, having a built-in password menu that can recognize cheats like bewareoblivionisathand?

Do you like debug menus that pop up over the game, hidden rooms to enable different options or just being dropped in all rawdog with your max money?

Did you actually buy the cheat code book? Lets talk cheating.

What handheld console has the best D-Pad and buttons for retro JRPGs? I have pic related as my main source for them which isn't too bad, it looks great and can play everything that I need it to, but the build quality on the hinge and top screen is a bit shittier than the earlier 3ds' in the line, and the buttons and D-Pad are extremely clicky which annoys me when playing RPGs with cardinal movement. I wish it was soft press like the DS Lite, but my only option if I want to stick with Nintendo is the regular 2DS. That wouldn't be too bad if it could natively run SNES games but you have to use RetroArch for them. I play on PC sometimes with this great 8bitdo SNES controller which feels super authentic but that isn't an option for my handhelds, aside from the Switch which doesn't have a large enough retro library for me.
What do you use? What do you recommend? I've wanted a Vita for a while but the price tag, especially on the SD cards is retarded.

Talk about CRT's. Take pictures of CRT's. Shit on people's choice of signalling. Shut up about scalers.
>I wanna take pictures
Good. Shoot at 1/60, 1/30, or maybe 1/15 for NTSC, and 1/50, 1/25, etc. for PAL.
If using a phone, try to shoot RAW to evade shitty filtering. If you can.
Open Camera is a good Android app. I ditched iOS before you could shoot RAW on it though, so IDK there.
DSLR's are great, too. But use whatever you have.

I'm glad 2-4 player versus options are going away
goldene
>Versus
10-15 minutes max of entertainment. 20 if you're doing a fighting game and you mess with all the characters

>Co-op
Possibly hours worth of content. More fun to work together against unfair AI odds in a game like Twisted Metal or Vigilante 8 than the 2-3 minutes you'll get out of the versus.

I've been replaying old games with a friend from PS1-PS2 era games, and the games that have held up the least are games like Goldeneye which we spent like 5 minutes with, whereas we had hours of fun with Perfect Dark.

Mega Man VR - the 4chan game that never was
ezgif-6-046a050aeedc
https://megamanfanon.fandom.com/wiki/Mega_Man_VR

It's been years since I have been on here, but I thought it would be fun to give an inside perspective I had on what was going to be a Mega Man fan game made by community members.

It was called Mega Man VR, and I killed the project. I can explain.

I wasn't there in the beginning, I only joined because I wanted to help with the music. There was a group chat on Skype where the game was being discussed. I don't have access to it anymore, but I did have access to the game files when I was working with them.

The main designers got ideas for robot masters from the community. In total, they had:

Wire Man
Sound Man
Siege Man
Flare Woman
Bandit Man
Mirage Woman
Meteor Man
Sabre Man

The community pushed really hard for Disco Man but that never happened because that was kinda gay.

Alright, how the fuck do I beat this guy.

I know you're supposed to bait him once he starts throwing hooks by going for his face, dodging his counterhook and then landing some hits.
BUT half the time after I go for his face, I can't dodge fast enough and get hit by the hook. Is there another mechanic beyond quick dodging that I don't know about? I go for his face, MASH AS FAST AS POSSIBLE to the sides to get out of the way, but Mac doesn't move sometimes, and I don't know why I'm not dodging.

I don't even care about the Sandman Express, I just want to be able to dodge his counter hook after I bait him consistently.

Things that Wolfenstein 3D did better than Doom:

>The enemies patrolled the maps when they had not yet noticed your presence, unlike that strange 2 steps stance from doom.

>Doors could open in sideway and walls could be pushed back, both Impossible in Doom as we could see in the secret maps from 2.

>The weakest human enemy of this game was much less shameful than the zombieman, in the penultimate difficulty he already has a greater precision and does a greater damage too, although both have low hp.

>Point-blank shots do more damage, simulating better the reality as incredible as it may seem, in doom only shotguns and bfg have this characteristic.

>Despite all the limitation of this old engine, the maps had more real life decorations such as tables, chairs, lanterns, flags and etc ... Things that we came to see in beta stage from doom.

>Run at 60 fps unlike Doom that was limited to 35 cap.

I know that Doom is a much superior game and its engine too, but it is interesting to see some features that maybe were sacrificed for the game run better on the systems of the time.

I think the first Rocket Knight game is the worst in the trilogy- goes way too overboard on shit autoscroller/shmup sections.

The Jolly Roger Boo

In Super Mario 64, there's is a 0.000042% chance that a boo will come out of the Jolly Roger Bay painting. This has only been discovered recently. The purpose of the boo is unknown and mario can't interact with it.

constructor5.png
I bought Constructor for nostalgic reasons recently and uninstalled it after two days. Even through my nostalgia goggles I sorta remembered it as being more of a novelty than actually good gameplay. Plus I sucked major ass at this game, and still do now: only barely got to level 3 tenants before either failing or giving up.

The controls are highly unintuitive, there's zero AI (as in, workers will ignore a fight going on near them and there is not even a setting to change this behavior), the damage model is ridiculous (you can have 10-20 guys gang up on 1 enemy and still take a long time beating him down and maybe lose 1 or 2 guys before they do so).

I know I'm not supposed to play this like an RTS where I just send an army to take down my opponent, but the way they seem to have made that unfeasible ist just plain not fun.

Is the encounter rate in this actually worse in the GBA version? It seems like running increases it, too. I literally ended a fight, didn't even take a single step and another enemy spawned.

Buying a Sega Dreamcast
dreamcast
I found a dude selling a Dreamcast online with 5 games (DOA2, 3rd Strike, MK Gold, Metropolis Street Racing and Soul Calibur) for $150. I would like to buy it but the guy lives far away from me so i can't really test the system or see it by myself before purchasing it. I only have these pictures for reference, do you anons spot any concerning detail or something like that from the pictures? What are the most common malfunctions with the Dreamcast?
