I don't care if you think your cringe anime console, of any variety, is somehow better than the N64 due to having more shovelware. The N64 is a better machine in every way than any other console that has ever been conceived by the human brain, and failure to understand it is indicative of the greatest ignorance and stupidity possible. Now greentext every point I made so I can call you dumb and wrong, because you are.

Were you ever tricked by retro reviews?
Back in the old days I remember a review talking about Rampage for the NES and how you got to play as monsters and destroy cities all across America.
It was written like this was the funnest game ever.
There were no pictures or anything (save the title screen), so the beautiful word picture the author painted managed to trick me into buying a terrible game.

When I was getting into this sphere of youtube almost a decade and a half ago there was always something about Pat that made me uncomfortable. If I were to relate it to descriptions I know today, it was probably because this guy seemed like a coomer and an unhealthy obsessive. I hated seeing him cameo in other people's videos.

Been playing the GB Mega Man games recently, and except for MM2GB (which was a joke) I find them hard as hell. This is coming from someone who's played a lot of NES Mega Man as a kid. The smaller screen makes it harder to dodge stuff and I feel you need to be way more precise with your platforming than you ever did in the NES games. This is coming off right after a NES MM marathon so I'm not going off vague childhood memories.

>> No.7729512

The gameplay on the Game Boy series feels slower, probably to compensate for the smaller screen. Mega Man 1 on the Game Boy is tough as shit. I just remember the levels just being really long. MM2 is the worst in the series in my opinion, it's too easy and the earrape music sucks ass. MM3 and 4 the balance gets a bit better. I haven't played enough of MM5 GB to have an informed opinion on it though.

I would say overall, they're alright as a handheld departure from the originals, but they just don't have the same quality as the NES games they're based on.

It's simply a remarkably staid affair given the acclaim it receives. It's all very simplistic and the set pieces, such as they are, failed to ignite my imagination. The levels are all ruddy bloody long, too, far longer than they are rich in ideas. I can usually reach the pyramid/temple stage before losing interest - the water-based level is just an all-time gaming bummer.

What would you all consider to be must have retro consoles? Which ones would you are are overrated to try and own?

20 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.7729781

NES, Vectrex, Game Boy Color (or advance who cares), PS1, N64, Atari 2600

>> No.7729786


N64 is must have if you have people to play with, otherwise recommended but not needed.

>> No.7729810

Since I'm strictly an emulatorfag I consider the most ownworthy consoles the ones with the spottiest emulation, mainly the N64 and Xbox.

If you're after comfortable homebrewing and large libraries your best bets are probably the Wii (for its backwards compatibility and emulators) and the backwards compatible PS2 Phat with a network adapter and HDD.

Mega CD has no copy protection for corretly formatted burned games, and the Mega Drive is an interesting system to own in general with its CD addon, Power Base Converter and potentially the 32X as well as weird games with four player controller ports on the cartridge. Not quite the same library as the SNES, but to me a more interesting system in itself as a collectable piece.

Weebs will probably see appeal in the PC Engine, Saturn and Dreamcast for their huge share of J only games.

Neo Geo would be cool for some accurate arcade ports and pretty much the best 2D graphics ever, but the library isn't actually all that big and prices have become FUCKING BIZARRE by now unfortunately.

GBA with backlit screen and flashcart is best handheld, don't even @ me (however a lot of GBA games are huge junk because they were trying to get crude 3D, photoscanned textures and recorded sounds onto the system instead of refining drawn 2D and bleeps to their utmost potential).

You don't need xbox, ps2, gamecube and dreamcast, just pick one and you won't really miss out on much and the graphic presentation is almost the same. You could skip gba since a lot of games are snes ports.

c64, spectrum, amstrad and amiga had a lot of games ported so its not essential but they have upto and over 5000 games each.

Neogeo had good ports on saturn so its not essential. 3do and cdi are annoying because the consoles are easy to find but the controllers are really expensive.

Hey my /vr/o's, i'm in a little crisis rn.

From the beginning of 2020 till today i started to play retro games i never touched before. Both Megaman Legends games, Galerians, Silent Bomber, Team Buddies, Vagrant Story, Tiny Tank. The ones i remember from the top of my head. For real, i don't remember the last time i had this much fun with video games.

I realized modern video games suck really hard. I'm really deep in this retro rabbit hole now and want more. You guys got anything for me i should check out based on the games i listed? Retro is absolutely the way to go and i really don't want to go back to anything else. I'm still on the games i listed, tried to fuck around in the gameplay, see if i could discover something cool and even fucked around with cheat/xploder codes. I REALLY NEED MORE OF THAT
