Anon, you probably haven't even exhausted your supply of NES games yet. Why are you shitposting?
>>
>>5579248
That is impossible, even for a NEET playing every waking hour. The best new games are better though.
>>
Reminder that Loco Bandito by Mike Matei is a thing.

Reminder that he tried his absolute HARDEST for YEARS to report, copyright claim and remove any trace of his cringy ass Elmo and Gadget videos from the internet, which only makes them more hilarious.
>>
>>5579267
Reminder that Mike Matei fucking posted on /vr/ and spammed a thread with the lyrics of the AVGN theme song so it could reach bump limit because some people exposed the shit he was doing at Reddit as the cinemassacre subreddit moderator.
Also, the whole thing about Mike dating Erin, and Joe from Game Sack getting salty is too funny.

>that Elmo video
>"Damn, that guy has really bushy eyebrows. If his eyebrows are that bushy... can you imagine... what his ass crack looks like?"
How is that quote not a fucking meme? Not only is it fucking absurd, it's also coming from a 30 year old guy in his pajamas, alone in his married friend's house, watching a movie for toddlers and making childish jokes that not even a 10 year old would find funny.
>>
>>5579279
Except I don't think anybody wants to be friends with fucking Matei. We're talking about him beause of the embarassing shit he did, and he is the one in contact with people on the internet, answering youtube comments, moderating Reddit, and even posting here on /vr/
>>
I actually like Mike Matei and find him entertaining to watch. He seems like a cool dude. But his cringe repertoire is immense and it's just too tempting to make fun of him.
>>
>>5579270
He did?

Is it in the archive?

Saw him at a con earlier this year. He thinks he's hot shit and runs around acting like a high school student with an inflated ego.

He did, I just checked but warosu doesn't seem to have the thread, you can find people talking about it though.
There was also a guy claiming to be Mike using a tripcode, but i doubt it was really him... who knows though.
The spammer guy who wanted to bump limit the thread was definitely him though, nobody else would be interested in covering his ass.

There's no way you can run out of retro games to play.

The issue is not that, it's oversaturation. Even removing first party games you still have a huge ass library of stuff you can play, but deciding is the hard part. You're less inclined to stick with something.

>>
>>5579296
You sound insecure.
>>
>>5580442
U mad, Mike?
>>
>>5580440
Nah.
For the first years of the PS2, its games were "PS1 games with better graphics".
Can you tell me of one single 3D game you use the D-pad to move in a modern title? Nowadays analog sticks are the norm but you could move with the D-pad in gta 3 and vice city, Jak And Daxter...
The right stick wasn't even used in a lot of games. In The Getaway the right stick doesn't control the camera (nothing does) but instead it controls the car throttle.
There were a lot of classic design sensibilities carried over from the PS1. It all depends on the game.
>>
>>5580440
I love people like you. Trying to cope and apologize for some others made up rules about what makes something /vr/

Good thing every other place on the internet considers ps2/xbox/gamecube retro. Not everyone can be retarded aspies like you.
>>
>>5580450
>>5580454
No...just no, really. PS2 can just never be retro because it's the pinnacle of modern gaming. Everything that games could ever be peaked in this era and after this everything sucks.

Play something like Burnout 3 or Rumble Roses. It's almost exact same thing as the PS3 versions.
>>
>>5580467
Burnout 3 has no equivalent on PS3, faggot.
>>
>it's another "/vr/ argues over whether retro means a time period or an age limit" episode
simply epik
>>
>>5580440
"Retro" means any game that isn't an emulation nighmare. So yeah, PS2 is NOT retro and will never be. The whole reason people like retro games is because they can be preserved for eternity without the need of rotting physical hardware.
>>
>>5580467
PS3 games and beyond may as well not even exist, because they can't be emulated and will die with their console within the next 10 years. Especially games that will never have a rerelease, ever.
>>

>Good thing every other place on the internet considers ps2/xbox/gamecube retro.

Then why don't you go there to discuss it, faggot.

>>5580581
Does that mean we can discuss Gamecube and Wii here since emulation of those works like a charm?
>>
>>5580653
Gamecube was the beginning of the end, but there are still good games there. Wii has like 10 good games and half of them are soulless casualized trash anyway.
>>
>>5580653
>emulating the forced wiimote gimmicks
You need an actual wiimote. They won't be sold forever like keyboards and computers are sold forever everywhere. They will eventually stop existing and those games will be off-limits for a while/years/forever until someone starts illegally producing them.
>>
>>5580581

sorry but do you even know how well the wii sold? what sort of insane and ridiculous numbers it pulled? then to top that off with the fact that most families that had one would get 2, 3, or even 4 wiimotes if not more later when the wiimote pluses came out?
>>
Just go full Retrophile :-P
>>
>>5580905
There is still a limited number of them in the world. At some point, it will become hard to get your hands on one of them. At some point, it will be hard to replace the broken ones.

It's not like with a regular game where you can just buy a random cheap Chinese controller any day of the week.
>>
>>5580670
The only Wii game worth preserving is Another Code R, and that doesn't really require Wiimote shit.

Everything else is either shovelware or soulless Nintendo crap that pales in comparison to their old games.

So, no N64?
I guess that brings GBA since it's always been better than most.
Although, MAME still remains a large emulation nightmare, so arcade and handheld LCD games don't count, especially LCD games since no one dumped most of them. (Fact: if it's not dumped, it's not worth playing.)

N64's two good games are perfectly playable with a computer and a keyboard. The shitty emulation is reserved for obscure shovelware shit.
>>
>>5580440
Learn some self awareness zoomer, the minecraft generation will look back and see the xbone ps4 generation as the “downfall” of gaming and see the 360 and ps3 as “retro” in 20 or so years. It’s all about justifying wasting your time as a stupid little kid while pretending you aren’t a hypocrite when you criticize contemporary little kids for wasting their time

games don't become retro over time. it's a period of time from the 1st videogame up to the '90s only

Truth. But i do feel like 90-99 is the second half of retrogames. like 70s-89 is the golden age, and 90-99 is the silver age and 2000-today is the brown age. brown as in shit.
>>
>>5583986
Nah, games were still ok up to about 2005. I'd say golden age to the early '90s, silver age from mid '90s to mid '00s, then brown age from seventh gen and beyond.

how is that possible?
I think of all the stuff from the 70s/80s/90s/00s and how many games I have barely explored. I mean shit the tii99/4a and amstrad cpc are 2 systems I recently started exploring and playing games for. That's a decent pile of games and i'll most likely find a few on each system I enjoy playing. So far Parsec and Hunt the Wumpus for the ti99/4a have been goto's for me.
So idk when I read that topic I just think how is that possible I have thousands of games from so many systems and decades to explore i'll be gaming into my late 80s at this rate.

Mike monitors all AVGN threads here. Coincidentally the threads that question his highly questionable gaming ability gets deleted. Mike, you are pretty good at older games, but you're not at the level of skill you think you're at.

Years ago I called him and James out for sucking at Ninja Gaiden, so he challenged me to do better and when I posted a video response blowing them out of the water, they changed their comment format, erasing all posts. Mike, who directly challenged me like a petulant child then ignored me.

Mike ran out of games that he's good at; James never really plays the games anymore and many of his old performances are just that. That's the thing, Mike doesn't get good at games, he's set where he's at and that's it, pure stagnation.

If it isn't already it's going to be soon. I think the true retro cut-off is going to be 7th gen. I think when the internet took over console gaming completely is when video games truly changed.
>>
>>5580450
And for the first few years of the xbox360 and ps3, the games were xbox and ps2 games with better graphics. Hell, the Wii had the same exact graphics as gamecube pretty much.

>implying ps1 and n64 emulation is not an emulation nightmare

N64 is kinda fucked, sure, (even Saturn is starting to surpass it), but PS1 emulation is piss-easy and has been for years. The fuck are you on about?
>>
>>5593820
I always thought it was funny how bad James is at games. Mike seems better but in the James and Mike mondays videos it looks like they aren't even trying most of the time. I don't think it's a bad thing though. In fact I think it adds a charm to it that it wouldn't otherwise have.
>>
>>5596310
It's about as easy as ps2 emulation.
>>
>>5596317
Not counting the official Sony emulators (WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE PCSX2 CODE IN THEM), there's only one PS2 emulator that actually plays any fucking games worth a damn.
Meanwhile, there's PS1 emulators out the ass, more than one of them being stupidly high-quality.
Again, what the fuck are you on about?
>>
>>5596313
Because James is a film nerd that stopped giving a shit about games once he became an adult but has to pretend to care because of the nerd character. And Mike is a manchild.
>>
>>5579282
The whole video is gold. The most hilarious thing is how uncomfortable Mike looks, like he has performance anxiety or something.
>>
>>5596319
Just wait for the technology to get better. At one point ps1 emulation was just as hard. You're going to look really silly years from now when everyone is emulating ps2 games out the ass.

I'm sure there was some jackass somewhere saying the same thing about ps1 emulation 20 years ago.
>>
>>5596460
This. Fucking watch some of his movie nerdery videos and see how much more enthusiastic he is about those.
>>
>>5596467
I'm just utterly baffled at your "PS1 is an emulation nightmare" statement.

>Not when consoles could play DVD's for the very first time

The Dreamcast could connect to the internet and people often chose their PS2 to play DVD's. People could only afford either a DVD player or a video game console; they went for the PS2 which had games and a DVD player.
