What's a /vr/ PC game that I can sink 100+ hours into?

I've played BG 1,2
Fallout 1,2
Diablo 2
DOOM and other retro FPS (but mostly DOOM)
Civ 1 only
Dune 2, 2000
AoE
Panzer general 1,2
HoMM3 but I disliked it

So, after all these, what can I play for a long time? If they have mods (custom shit) it's even better.

I got it on sale on Steam ages ago, never really gave it a proper go. Was hard to find much info on it online (the generic name doesn't help I guess) but it seemed like a solid homage to the Might and Magic 3/4/5 era of grid based open world RPGs. Will have to give it another try. Is there a particular class/build I should be using for a smooth first playthrough?

Clunky doesn't mean laggy, it means awkward movement. The mouse, fish, and bee animals are the only ones that don't feel funky. I'll give the digging guy a pass since he doesn't feel clunky once underground, but the rest I wanna drop the exact moment the level lets me.

Clunky controls doesn't make for a bad game, but it's not a point in it's favor either. I like Wonder Boy in Monster Land, but I can recognize the controls are ass in that game.

The golden rule when playing for the 1st time is to try vanilla. Because that's the game that came to be. Mods are cool, but they just aren't the original game.

lmao i have two games in mind that i cant fucking remember, and spend quite some time searching for them and found nothing, the first one is a naval battle in 2D where some ships come from the sides of the screen and sometimes a submarine launches a torpedo from below, it had some mines floating around too, the other one had a chicken protagonist, 2D plataform and once you started a level the game made a clucking sound quite fun both of them

Been recently playing this series of games that I never got into as a kid. I'm really struggling with the 16bit ones, but just beat pic related after playing off and on all day.

What's your favorite contra game? I like the aesthetics, speed, and music of Hard Corps, but I'm not a big fan of boss rush style games.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.

Agreed with OP. Hard Corps would be a better game if it had more actual levels.
>>
>>5821424
Super C had better platforming, more balanced guns, and better soundtrack than Contra. Overall it's better than Contra and if you disagree you're a fucking normie.
>>
>>5821424
Contra, Super C, Alien Wars and Hard Corps are all so good in slightly different ways that it's impossible to choose; my favourite just changes depending on what I'm in the mood for that day. Alien Wars may have the best track, though, in this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPPTlI9Q1og
Pounding through some big speakers with the sound of the flamethrower going off is incredible.

Contra is a good training for Super C, but my favorite is Contra, was the first videogame i played so only for that, in terms of dificulty i preffer Super C

My favorites would Hard Corps and Shattered Soldier. Personally I'm more of a fan of the boss rush styled Contras.

I recently picked up a 27" JVC D-Series, and the color, geometry, and convergence are all pretty good. It has a little darkness up in the top right corner though, and I wondered if anyone here would know if it can be fixed.

I had this impression when I was the unlucky one to use it, but I always assumed it was due to the fact that it was the least used controller, so the analog wasnt raped as much. The buttons overall also felt better to press, I just could never get used to the handles thing.
>>
>>5826286
I had a SuperPad Yobo. Utter shit. The Z, L, and R buttons would intermittently stop working, and the joystick had dead zones. Plus, those little extra buttons, if pressed by accident, would either make any game freeze right up, or make the entire controller quit working until the console was reset.

I'm barely breaking even here. The new (red) coaster means I can pump up the admission fee, right? It's at $20 now since $25 got me the "worst value park award" and no visitors.
How the hell am I supposed to make real money in this.

I did end up finishing the scenario, but only barely. This is what I managed to build by year 3 of a 4 year scenario. Got me just over the guest target with two advertising campaigns.
You can build surprisingly good and cheap steel mini coasters if you have a hill like the brown one on the top does. Could've made that one plenty better if I'd had the money.

SNES or PSX I know it's predictable choice but I really enjoy it's lineup.

Master System not really into the Sega arcade ports but Phantasy Star 1 is such a great fun JRPG dungeon crawler

Been finally looking into TurboGrafx-16. Don't know why but I never really spent any time both real and emulation until now.

I bought the super sd system 3, not cheap but it also acts as a flash cart. Rondo plays well on it. The CD hardware is getting quite flakey and is showing it's age.

It's not cheap, but it's all where your budget and gaming priorities are, for me it was worth saving up for a few months to get one.

That's impossible! It's like asking for my favorite movie or song. Although the PS2 is the best one IMO

Dreamcast cause it's so damn finicky, laser printer laser, loud fan, shitty internal battery and for the VMU and the controller

>Console you don't have much/if any experience with and is now trying it out and see what you might enjoy
Master System, Turbo Grafx/CD and Saturn

Are any of these retro mini dedicated consoles really worth it as far as a way to play retro games? The NES Classic Edition, The Super Nes Classic Edition, PS Classic, Sega Genesis Mini and the Turbografx mini? I'm really interested in the Turbografx mini. I always liked that little console and would have wanted to try it out physically, but I could never really justify buying an actual Turbografx 16 with its expensive library of games.

I picked up a ps1 classic 2 weeks ago for 20 bucks at best buy. I got a 128gb scandisc flash drive and loaded it with autobleem and retroboot (retroarch). It really was as simple as drag and drop to install then drag and drop roms. Runs NES SNES GB/C GBA and Ps1 great. It ran psp okay ( only tested crisis core) retroboot has a DS core but it was shit. I haven't tried it yet but saw videos of drastic DS emulator running smooth on it. Overall nothing my pc couldn't do. But it's nice to have to have a dedicated device just for emulation that I can hook up to any tv in the house. Autobleem requires the 2nd usb controller port to be used by a flash drive. Friend brought over a usb hub and we had 2 controllers hooked up in the one port and played 2 player fighting games just fine. The controllers are really nice and worth it for the 20 bucks I spent alone.
