Name a better retro dev than Derek Smart, known for such classics as Battlecruiser 3000AD.
>>
Couldn't have picked a worse way to say, "Hey, let's talk about a developer I find interesting. Here are some talking points..."

Or do you really just want people to shitpost about how Carmack or whatever is more important?
>>
>>5290120
I just want to talk about Derek Smart since he's one of my favorite devs of all time. How would you have started the thread?
>>
This is like the 3rd thread about Derek Smart. What is going on?
>>
>>5290136
Well I can assure you that I never look at other threads to see if anyone else has created a thread about the same subject because I have an enormous sense of self-importance so if there are indeed other threads it is a coincidence that I created one as well. However Derek Smart is known for being very outspoken so it's possible that he said something recently that put him in a lot of people's minds.

>How would you have started the thread?

"Derek Smart is one of my favorite devs of all time. Here are some things you might know him for: [list]. I like him because [reasons] and [game] is my favorite game of his. What are your opinions on Derek Smart and how do you think he compares to his contemporaries?"
>>
>>5290094
Its like you're actively trying to summon him.

This ain't USENET, bucko
>>
He still mad about getting cucked by Chris Roberts?
>>
>>5290153
I'll try that next time.
>>
>>5290094
is this the guy who had his shit pushed in by mandaloregaming?
>>
>>5290094
Give me a quick rundown
>>
>>5290796
Guy made a vaporware that eventually turned out to be shit.

Do composers fall within the realm of game devs? If yes then Tim Follin.

His usenet / forum raging is legendary.
A ragetard and a true inspiration for everyone in /vr/
>>
>>5290136

Derek Smart picked up that someone on /vr/ was talking about him via Google Alerts and is trying to false-flag support for himself.
>>
>>5290094
Who.... What?
>>
>>5290829
>vaporware
I mean it came out. Arguably about a dozen times. Hard to call that vaporware.
>>
is he right about shart shitizen and RSI?
>>
>>5290136
Derek himself did it.
>>
>>5290901
Anon is trying to force this rubbish ironic meme e-celeb from the 80s by repetition. Just sage this bullshit, holy fuck.

Based.
>>
>>5290907
Anyone who criticizes Star Citizen is correct to do so. A real game would have a playable demo by now.
>>
>>5290862
He will forever be our guy.
>>
>>5291156
the youtube videos are fuckin mindblowing tho
>>
>>5291156
people always counter this with "you can play some parts of the game". i liked the stuff they put out about infiltrating ships and fps combat, but i havent seen anything about that saince
>>

Dude, this isn't 11th grade English. The fuq is ur problem?

Richard "Lord British" Allen Garriott

Once fended off a naked crackhead with an UZI in his bedroom. Has a dungeon under his house and an astronomical observatory on the roof. Immortal, but weak to poisoned bread.

>>5292313
I like this guy and I also like Warren Spector.

Just a rough draft of a much less confrontational/trolling post OP could make.
>>
FUCK THE KNICKS
>>
Derek is just the best.
>>
>>5290094
Derek Smart is a misunderstood genius ahead of his time.
>>
>>5297186
Hell, I STILL don't understand what the fuck his game is about.
>>
Who's easier to summon? Dsmart or Brad Wardell?
>>
>>5297635
Dsmart, because if you talk shit about BC3000AD, Dsmart will fight you on the street.
>>
>>5297651
Hopefully so. Then I can be legally justified with shooting him in the face.
>>
>>5298525

Gotta love Derek.

Will there ever be a sequel?
>>
>>5300836
This video is classic 4chan.
>>
>>5300836
Also, does anyone know what the music is? Considering the age of the video I'm guessing some ancient video game.
>>
>>5290862
Have you seen the piss post?

they say you'll get more flies with honey than vinegar but the opposite is much more true on 4chan.

Fuck off, Derek.

>pushed in
Derek's been around long before Mandalore was even a primordial thought. Pushed in? That was just a regular day of the week in the life of Elder God Derek Smart. The people who "push him in" are not the first, nor the last. They shall fade from history, and only Derek shall remain. You cannot harm a god. His body may be flesh and blood, but you cannot kill his story. His ascension was paved in blood, forged and tempered by his incredible intellect that the Creator had bent biological law for his cranial size. Every move you may see as oafish, but Derek plans thousands of years in the future

I'd like to know what's that little black and white alien.

Cleveland Mark Blakemore wishes he had a tenth of Derek's talent.

>>5304212
That one is explained in the comments as some movie called Feeders.
>>
>>5301639
Need a fast summary on these two

Any Smarties (Derek Smart fans for those not in the know) seen the latest speedrun for Derek Smart's DESKTOP COMMANDER? Some crazy shit happens in it. I didn't know it was so easy to skip the shutdown sequence!

>>5308161
Uh?
