I agree, I think the amount hate they get is kind of outsized, even if SNK hadn't gone bankrupt, I think they still would've struggled to top the original games, Metal Slug 3, while not necessarily the best game in the series, represents the technical peak, at the end of the arcade age. The series time would've passed even if SNK hadn't fallen apart.

I don't even remember ever hearing about it once until SSB Melee and even then I originally thought Ness was the kid from Paperboy.
No one I knew ever had it or talked about it, I don't remember seeing it in stores or in any magazines, but now it's hailed as not only one of the best games on the Super Nintendo, but one of the greatest rpgs of all time?

>> No.7324984

"early" internet, starman.net, the rise of game youtubers talking about it etc. Just sort of took off, in the west at least. There wasn't much coverage of the game before then

>> No.7325035

I think Smash Bros. had something to do with it. The majority of people who didn't know who Ness was would search for him online, and find all of what >>7324984 was describing. I believe the same thing happened with Fire Emblem when people started asking "who tf is Marth?"

Yeah because one of the original human characters having a cybernetic eye didn't already have futuristic implications, I dislike a lot about MK III gameplay wise but expanding the Earthrealm lore is not part of that for me. MK II was very much about Outworld, MK III further expanded the Black Dragon and Lin Quei storylines.

Donkey Kong was released before both Pitfall and Jungle Hunt and is also better designed by many magnitudes.

Because memesters say that about EVERY retro video game. EVERY single one of them. For starters, memesters don't even play retro videogames, they just circlejerk about it because their YouTube/Twitch ecelebs play them or like them.

The one time those people beat a retro videogame in a two year span is a meme one like Metroid, Zelda or Mario, on an emulator with all its conveniences and then comment on how "technically it didn't age well because [shitty opinions here]".

Does anyone remember an old videogame where yout village was getting infected by aliens and you had to talk with people to solve the mistery and save the village? I think it was based on a movie with the same name. And I also remember that you had time to solve everything. It was kind of adventure in the early 90s, in DOS maybe.
