>tfw you run out of new retro videogames to play
>>5579248Anon, you probably haven't even exhausted your supply of NES games yet. Why are you shitposting?
>>5579248That 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.
>>5579267Reminder 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.
>>5579267>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.
>>5579279Except 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.
>>5579270He 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.
>>5579282>ywn lick the shaved ass crack of James' wife
>>5579292He 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.

>>5579282I don't think anyone could stand watching Elmo video for so long to hear that phrase. Minecraft with Gadget was more digestable than that
>>5579434He has yet to learn that the mods aren't his friends.They aren't ANYBODY'S friends.
>>5579284You do realize that the guy posting about "Parasocial Interactions" IS Mike Matei though, right?
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.
I bet you didn’t even look at the list of fan translated retro Roms.
>>5579248>run out of retro games to play>hair grows back
Mike, you okay big guy?
>>5579282It's too try hard and not funny for humor or irony.
>>5579739YEAH I'M GREAT I HAVE A BIG FAT DICK
>>5579739Based and redpilled. Mike might be annoying and childish as fuck, but at least he know's whats up where it counts.
>>5579786what artist is this
>>5579739This is Mikes only redeeming quality...and the fact that hes actually pretty good at retro games. Hes not a bad dude, but he is a cringe-meister. Mike, can you drop an b-bomb during a livestream someday? Pretty please.
>>5579786Jesus Christ what the fuck
>>5579786It's like Crumb... but I don't think it's crumb. Why did the comic have to end just before it got good?
This is why PS2 and GBA should be retro.
>>5579256>acknowledging that good modern games existCareful, there. That triggers the REEEES hardcore here on /vr/
>>5579282That quote is fucking hilarious precisely because it falls flat and he says it in such an awkward way, with a completely straight face instead of playing it off as a dumb joke. It just highlights how stupid and unfunny that shit he just said was.
>>5579786This is literally AVGN humor. Mike is the one who wrote the episodes. AVGN is Loco Bandito 2.0.
>>5579739Someone should go to a convention and ask Mike about it, or even try to sign it
>>5579887Agreed. We should ask gookmoot to amend the rules so that if a game is at least 18 years old it can be legal to discuss here.
>>5580345I hear he'll sign it, but only if you call him your White Aryan Brother repeatedly.
>>5579739This isn't even the best one.
>>5580361>thinks age makes a game retroUhm, sweetie. PS2 era is when we ventured in to modern territory.
>>5579296You sound insecure.
>>5580442U mad, Mike?
>>5580440Nah.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.
>>5580440I 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>>5580454No...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.
>>5580467Burnout 3 has no equivalent on PS3, faggot.
>it's another "/vr/ argues over whether retro means a time period or an age limit" episodesimply 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.
>>5580467PS3 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.
>>5580009>>5580142How desperate are you faggots?
>>5580454>Good thing every other place on the internet considers ps2/xbox/gamecube retro.Then why don't you go there to discuss it, faggot.
>>5580581Does that mean we can discuss Gamecube and Wii here since emulation of those works like a charm?
>>5580653Gamecube 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 gimmicksYou 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.
>>5580581Then why are retrofags the biggest hoarders/collectors of rotting plastic junk?
>>5580585>because they can't be emulated? i know this is vr but you know rpcs3 is a thing right
>>5580670>They will eventually stop existingsorry 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
>>5580905There 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.
>>5580670The 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.
>>5580925>forgetting the greatest Wii game of all timeLad...
>>5580581So, 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.)
>>5579267Loco Bandido is unironically funny.
>>5579251>jaw drops to the floor>eyes pop out of head>*AWOOOOOOOOGA*>puts eyes back in>fixes jaw>slicks back hairWell who is this honkin’ retro babe?
>>5581082N64's two good games are perfectly playable with a computer and a keyboard. The shitty emulation is reserved for obscure shovelware shit.
>>5580440Learn 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
>>5581116>shitty emulation is reserved for obscure shovelware shitThat's like those other non-retro things with terrible emulation like Dreamcast, CD-i & PowerPC.
>>5581116>N64's two good games are perfectly playable with a computer and a keyboard>playing Sin and Punishment and Bangai O with a keyboard
>>5581035I can't in to moon runes. What gayme is this?
>>5579786Artist is Johnny Ryan - he did Blecky Yuckarella
>>5580920>still a limited number of them in the worldyou're not wrong but by the time that's a concern we'll have motion controls/vr interfaces so commonly available that it'll be nothing to use a replacement style controller (even todays original vive wand would serve the purpose)
>>5581156>literally says Sin and Punishment on the coverAnon
>>5579248I wonder how long until James and Mike dig into the trash-heap bad 1990s-early 2000s game mods? Such as >Poorly made Thief FMs.>DOOM Terrywads>mod maps that were better on paper
>>5579270>Also, the whole thing about Mike dating Erin, and Joe from Game Sack getting salty is too funny.What?
>>5579248Time to look for Prototypes and European Computer games!

>>5579248by the time he's out of current retro games, several generations of gaming will have become retro
>>5583889games don't become retro over time. it's a period of time from the 1st videogame up to the '90s only
>>5583985Truth. 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.
>>5583986Nah, 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.
>>5583889Jesus if this isn't true. I haven't even begun digging into the DreamCast catalog. Once PS2 happens I don't know what I'll do.
>>5581085This is the only one that's funny.
>>5579248Actually, it's way sadder to know that your lifetime won't be enough to play all good retro games.
>>5579739>>5584594I DEMAND MORE!!!
>>5579248if there are videogames constantly coming out, shouldn't also older games be constantly becoming retro?
>>5579248how 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.
>>5579248don't forget about japanese games and such.you have alot to play
>>5585003Yes, but people get really hung up on a definition posted to this board years ago and act as though it is this unimpeachable decree handed down from God himself.
Play romhacks and mods, pretty sure you can play nothing but Doom mods for a lifetime.
>>5584594>>5579786>>5579739Kek this is electric retard tier
How can you have run out of games? You haven't even begun to explore the world of British home computer shovelware.
I'm so much like Mike its not even funny
>>5580914I don't get it, that's not nintendo
>>5579248somthing something mulatto dumpster baby.

>>5589101Locomalito detected, good thing you are a nice guy
>>5587694the only people who would care to suffer through shitty euro computer shovelware are the people who already suffered through it in their youth
>>5579328>>5582873>the nerd as OP pic>"wahhh muh e-celeb boogeyman"
>>5580670I'm fairly certain that like, any VR controller can emulate them flawlessly
https://youtu.be/UzoDVhEaPDEDo they NOT want to play all the shit they get requests for?
>>5580440Whippersnapper pls, why back in my day, the NES and the Genesis were the new hip things on the block. They were the signs of modern gaming.
>>5579270Mike 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.
>>5579296Years 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.
>>5593826Mike, you are mentally where I was at when I was 12.
>>5593484Mike 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.
>be Mike>be utterly in love with James>go insane with jealousy when James gets married>care a lot what people think of your gaming cred>troll /vr/>profit?
So is he fuckin Erin or not? Can't blame him, she's pretty cute
ITT: Motherfucker Mike losing his shit
So I tried to watch MJM for the first time and what the fuck, did James seriously lose his shit and couldn't stop laughing because of that shitty MFF romhack? Always assumed that the whole potty """humor""" from AVGN was meant to be ironic, turns out that the guy was just a regular retard.
>>5579267Outside of ResetEra and other hives of autistic pearl-clutching fags, is anybody honestly offended by that shit?
>>5594046You just grew out of him. You'll be back when you turn 25 or whenever you grow out of your "2cool4u" phase, though.
>>5594046Oh yeah he’s a literal retard too. He was send to special school and rode the short bus. Not even joking.
>>5579267matei is an insufferable prick. you can tell just by watching his interactions with james on james and mike mondays. however, loco bandito is fucking hilarious.
>>5579290I always thought he seems like a cool guy with just a bad sense of humor. I feel bad for him when people make fun of him.
>>5579887If 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.
>>5580450And 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.
>>5580581>implying ps1 and n64 emulation is not an emulation nightmareAlso the only reason ps2 emulation is hard is because most computers can't handle it
>>5596304N64 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?
>>5593820I 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.
>>5596310It's about as easy as ps2 emulation.
>>5596317Not 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?
>>5596313Because 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.
>>5579282The whole video is gold. The most hilarious thing is how uncomfortable Mike looks, like he has performance anxiety or something.
>>5596319Just 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.
>>5596460This. Fucking watch some of his movie nerdery videos and see how much more enthusiastic he is about those.
>>5596467I'm just utterly baffled at your "PS1 is an emulation nightmare" statement.
>>5596460Hard to blame him. Games became shit right around the time James became an adult.
>>5596293>Not when consoles could play DVD's for the very first timeThe 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.
>>5594615I think Mike plays off that Bootsy guy better than James. The two of them seem a lot more enthusiastic about games and Mike tones down the toilet humor when James isn't around.
>>5598871too bad bootsy is long gone now.
>>5598874What happened to him?I think he was the most tolerable of all those guys
>>5598880the rumor is that he and mike had a huge falling out. A big twitter beef and then apologies and so on, but those 2 won't ever work together again sadly.
>>5598880Engaged in politics too much on Twooter
>>5598898Twitter is actually the worst shit to happen to the internet
What shitty games have ya'll wiped your asses with before?My favorite to use is Metal Gear Solid. Really cleans out the whole asscrack.
>>5600576Yoshi's Island, but I don't think it counts because I had two copies and that one was broken.
>>5600576Never wiped my ass with a game before, but I ran over an original Playstation with my car because that whole console sucked so much ass.
>>5598898>bootsy's a libtard
>>5601786Yeah that bummed me out a little bit too.
You think he's gonna review it?
>>5602594How many RPG's has he reviewed?
>>5579270Joe was all over her channel comment section last year. It's amazing that it took it so badly.
>>5602784>It's amazing that it took it so badly.What did he do?
>>5601798does it bum you out that you're retarded?
>>5598898The guy who punched him ran away?
>>5598898Race traitors like Bootsy get the bullet too.
>>5579248>tfw you run out of new retro videogames to play, but have new retro movies to watch
James is basically your beta man child.You see how upset he gets when he mentions "Sega does what nintendont" lol he has been bitter over that for 30 years.Mike has such a punchable face and the personality of douche.Haven't watched any of their shite for a few years as I don't want to give them views.
>>5604060But he says he likes Sega and bought a Genesis back in the day because of Sonic 1.
>>5604060Fucking this. Sensationalism (regardless of the quality of the content), especially in the early days of YT, stood out and easily gained views.
