Fellas, you need to distinguish between "Team Rocket Grund with a whip" and "Team Rocket consisting of Jesse James and a fucking talking cat", you're confusing the zoomers

For me, it has to be Karnov´s revenge. Its so shit and fun at the same time.

would a metroid-like sonic work? the series already incentivize exploration, why not give it a new twist? you get spindash as first ability, then you unlock more abilities... you get the gist.

Mega Man would probably work really well as a willytroid. You already have bosses that give you power ups when you defeat them, now you just gotta throw them in a huge interconnected map like a city with the robot masters having the part of the city they're ruling coorespond to their respective themes. With a huge ass wily castle in the center or just outside the city that requires all powerups to enter

There's definitely some overlap, the speedbooster puzzles feel directly applicable to some of sonic's momentum based platforming, but the problem with sonic is that it's always in that mode. There's an efficient utility to samus's movement when you're navigating the boring stuff, a quick succession of rooms backtracking, trolling for upgrades. Having to constantly stop and start sonic's movement to get your head around obstuse environments would kind of feel like shit compared to going through the forward tracks of his games.
>>
>>7326171
No. Considering how the one time 2D Sonic tried having a hubworld and mandatory exploration mechanics (Sonic Advance 3) it came out as a complete piece of fucking shit.
If even Kirby and Megaman couldn't be turned into decent Metroid games how can Sonic have a chance?

Anyone remember that phrase? You'd be talking about the vidya with bros and someone would say "I wrapped that game!". You knew what it meant, meant they beat it.

But where did it come from? Some possibilities:
>"Thats a wrap folks!" from making movies, meaning you're done filming and the wrap of film is finished.
>"Getting rapped" an old street phrase for someone getting their ass beat.
>"Wrap it up, we're done here" Finished the task. Let's wrap this up for now.

I have this theory that it's a holdover from the arcade days. When a player would finish a game, the content would "wrap around" and you'd start at level 1 again.
>"The game wrapped around"
Pac Man, Donkey Kong and many other arcade games did this. When those gamers went to consoles the phrase stuck to mean that you saw the end of the game. Many NES games did that too, when you beat it you'd start over.

What phrases did you use to mean that you finished a game?

Where I'm from kids used to say "I flipped it." It's kind of an old arcade term because the game would start over once you beat the last level.

i never noticed a difference with dash attacks. if you did them too early or too late, the sword dudes would still slice you, regardless of who you were, and it was still the best way to take them out (except for gilius's roll attack).

Buying new tech to emulate retro game is wrong. Just get the original console and play on a crt.
>>
>>7331953
This. People who use programmable logic to emulate parts that are impossible to find in order to get their arcade boards running are pure evil. Come to think of it, any company that made boards using programmable instead of discrete logic should burn in hell for the same reason.

The way link runs away IS the implied romance. Otherwise it would just be more like

But instead we get link spilling his spagetti all over like ever other anon has done next to a girl they liked when they were a kid.

'
There's definitely implied romance, but it's ambiguous enough that younger kids may not know it's there. Mainly in this scene, and in mido's jealousy of Link being Saria's "favourite". What age did you guys play this at?
>>
>>7331079
Saria clearly cares deeply about Link, but it's left completely up to interpretation if you think it's "love." Mido clearly has a complex about Saria liking Link best, so I feel like that's a "maybe."

The hilarious part is, as soon as you dare to mention that the snes is the weakest 16bit hardware around, the nintendo defense force goes: BBBBBUT SEGA... There were many 16bit platforms starting with arcade boards in the mid to late 80s. And 99% of these platforms are better/faster than the snes. Which at this point just runs on fanatical fanboy'ism.

Even you can't admit that the SNES isn't superior than Genesis in your own shitpost lmao
>>
Nothing. There's a reason it got games deep into the 5th gen while the Genesis more or less died immediately from the Shiturn.
>>
>>7332741
That's because the N64 got released late so the developers for Nintendo couldn't jump ship, genius
>>
>>7332741
I wouldn't say that '96 is "deep into the 5th gen". I'm pretty sure that those late SNES titles like KSS and SMRPG were using SFX/SA-1 chips which is like a GPU/CPU upgrade that made it more powerful than the stock Genesis.

These debates never end on /vr/ and nobody seems to actually change their minds anyway, so it just looks like people talking to themselves at length, nearby one another.

Have any of you ACTUALLY changed your minds on these? What spurred it? I'm interested solely in the opinions of these specific anons.

The best Genesis games are better than the best SNES games, but the SNES has more good games than the Genesis. Overall I prefer the Genesis.
PS1, N64, and Saturn all have such different libraries from one another, but they're all pretty decent libraries. PS1's is definitely the biggest, so I play mine the most out of the three.
Same goes for PS2 and GameCube. PS2 has an incredible library, while GameCube has some pretty good exclusives. Xbox is a bit lacking. PS2 is my favorite of the three.
