Why is Ikaruga always in the top 5 (if not #1) of every list of top shmups?

Because it does something novel, unlike 99% of other shmups.

What are some retro systems that are easy to program for? I dont mind assembly, but cant stand poor architecture that leads to hacky code

The Atari 2600, that also has one of the best homebrew scenes and documentation.
>>
>>5512479
The 2600 is weird in that there's no hardware framebuffer, meaning you need to implement it in software
>>
>>5512413
The Apple II is insanely well documented as well, because Apple's manuals told you everything down to the signal level, but then its architecture is a little too minimalist so not many people want to code for it.
>>
>>5512475
I would argue the same with Amiga vs Mega Drive. The latter is designed to do sprites and side scrolling really well, so the Amiga can never hope to pull off Sonic or Vectorman, but since it's a computer, it's a bit more well-rounded and has flexibility the MD does not.
>>
>>5512475
It could but saying it can't do scrolling in an integral part of underage signaling

>>5512489
It was very normal to not have a frame buffer back when enough RAM to implement one would have increased costs many times. You don't "implement it in software" any more than I implement velcro straps in shoelaces. They're different ways of achieving the same result.

>>5512174
the powers in x2 are cool but their not exactly good or fun. that being said speedburner does absurd amts of damage to certain enemies, along with crystal hunter being ohko to small mobs. my problem with the powers in this game is that you can't L/R scroll through them while you're charging or else you will inevitably activate bubble shot or silk shot's charged so you never really get to have quick fun with the charged up versions. you should really ask what was the best charged up or favorite. personally i thought the charged up version of crystal was really cool and whacky in a weird way (time distortion) but it slows you down too. charged up bubble shield is fun for clearing one hit enemies like going through the moth stage with all the AIDS mosquitos.

Weird Dreams. What a disturbing game. If you have a chance to read the story that comes with it, the game feels all the more eerie.

Why is the NES port called Double Dragon if it's only single-player?

There's a store here called Double Dragon. It had some serious code violations and had to close temporarily last year. That explains how it's so much cheaper than wypipo stores.

Chris Seavor Releases Draft For Scrapped Conker Sequel

I don't know if the recycled tutorial elements are a fun mirror of the first or if it's a sign that the game would suffer from rehash syndrome
>>
>>5511243
I don't get the movable context system

Looks like it would have been to Conker what Tooie was to Kazooie - a refined, and ambitious all-around follow-up. The only part that sounds meh is Conker swearing more. Though he said he changed things so who knows. He was fine in Live and Reloaded. I actually prefer that Conker.

Will this game be considered one of the first masterpieces in videogame history, just like today we admire a bach fugue?

I wouldn't say sotn is the first. It is definitely maybe peak castlevania title that is both polished and accessible. There might be a technically better castlevanias but not as many people have played them.

Other possible first would be Mario 3, Sonic 2, tmnt arcade, Y's I II.

And if those dont count, though not retro, I would say Nier is a masterpiece. It takes the platform of gaming and crafts a narrative that impacts the player with both an overall moral and emotional response.
