This is the one thing I hate about PSX, it set the standard for every controller having TOO MANY FUCKING SHOULDER BUTTONS.

Why the fuck did this shit catch on? I have always hated this.

>Imagine if all scroll wheels were horizontal
Actually a good point. Maybe the 3DS XL and the Wii Classic controller had it right.

I use one finger for each shoulder button if they're used equally and only index finger if it's primarily one.

Maybe I remember it wrong, it was a long time since I played it, but doesn't MGS2 require one finger for each trigger to be able to do more advanced moves like entering aiming while peeking around corners?

Whenever I needed to use my left shoulder button I would still use my right hand to guarantee I hit it precisely. Using my left hand for both buttons and d-pad never felt right when they were needed for split second reactions.

/vr/ is the only place I've ever seen where SotN is not only not regarded as a great game, it's also """widely""" seen as mediocre or even bad. Considering it's a small board, I'm willing to bet it's the same 2 or 3 autists spamming the same vague criticisms, every time

>because it actually is bad and everyone else on the internet is wrong
Is just a very autistic and therefore, very vocal minority that cant shut the fuck about muh classicvania that cant get into their heads that you can like both types of games. Even if you dont like the gameplay or find it too easy you cant deny the artwork and music in it is top notch. Still is visually and musically the most aesthetic 2D castlevania ever (so... Castlevania overall). Remember 4chan is the embodiment of contrarianism in the internet
Some of the metroidvanias are my favorite games in this franchise period, and I'd still shittalk SoTN.

>popularity is a good argument
That's a dumb principle to stand on and you should feel dumb. Keyword being "should" because I'm sure you won't.
I think SOTN haters are actually more likely to be IGAvaniafags like >>7121927 because as similar as SOTN may be to the rest, it's probably still unpleasant for them whenever someone points out it was the only one developed for a real console with the peak-era staff before the n64 failures caused them to start closing studios. And that these conditions explain why it's the most technically impressive one.

The flip side of that is that it should have the most appeal to classicvania fans out of the modern games. The Richter prologue and tutorial clips demonstrate that the game even deepened the classic style mechanics, even if you don't need to use them.

The game itself is good, but I can see people being disappointed by its legacy: good Castlevanias stuck on portables and being too easy unless you tweak them and use locked difficulty modes.
literally the whole appeal of SOTN is the music and atmosphere, with a little side of knowing how to make the game laughably easy once you learn a little bit about it. One of the main reasons why the first few GBA castlevania games were so bad was them thinking anyone played SOTN for the level design philosophy of having a billion tunnels full of guys that die in one hit.

That's the first one I thought of, but I also assumed it would have a translation and I was just unaware.

Do people do Dreamcast translation these days?
Nobody said it's always the same person. A machine translator is far from ideal for how often that gets advertised.
Then stop making low quality posts
There is a fan translation of this, though.
You sound very confused redditot. There's no "would" involved here. I play what I want because I'm not EOP. If you thirst for a shitty fan transtranslation of a game then I schadenfreude in your general direction.

>f the best-selling games,
Playstation veteran here. What new games are made that are outside my demographic? Are they any good?
Yes, I agree. But then there was a leap forward. Will that happen this generation around, though?
>Some of the VR stuff is actually interesting.
This is the only thing I'm maintaining interest in anymore. Around 7th gen is when it seemed like AAA games actually regressed with gameplay. Could still find some decent indie games with good gameplay but even that doesn't seem as common anymore.

Budget for modern games is about 50% marketing, and then another large chunk going to graphics, voice actors, and music, probably in that order. Gameplay isn't much of a priority and a lot of games are being sold and praised with people never really talking about the gameplay. I suppose it's because there's only so much you can do when using the same type of interface for 20 years, which is why I hope VR can keep improving to at least offer something new for gameplay again.

I got one in the summer for only £185. Came with a spare broken controller that was an easy fix.
Got mine years ago boxed with 6 boxed games for £80, then the UK mag "Retro Gamer" ran a article about it and the price started to rise.

Mine also had a broken controller, spring inside the joystick had broke

Hardly. Doors for two games in a row in RE except for a random scare in 2 and a cutscene in 1 were safe, it was an established rule that enemies would not follow you into the next room, and Nemesis followed that in the first encounter by being unable to break open the police station door because he dumb.

The second encounter where he's fully willing to chase you through multiple rooms was a major "Oh shit!" moment that showed that Nemesis was not going to fuck around.
Oh hey, it's Jill's husband.

Which /tactics/ games stood out the most to you? And which styles? Turn-based, real-time, maybe even jarpig?

I tended to dislike jarpig ones because grinding isn't as fun as thinking. Similarly, real-time reflexes aren't as satisfying as a calm, final decision. So turn-based like the Wars games were most enjoyable, and there are even 3D versions now!

However, pure tactics games tend to lack the more dramatic art and narrative which RPG tactics has, e.g. FF games for jarpig or SSI's DnD games for the warpigs.

I wonder if any other tactics game could match the grand story, map size and breeding mechanics of Fire Emblem IV/V?

Just started playing the original PS1 FFT and I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing, but I'm having fun pretending I am. I just finished the slums battle and figured out how to change my job/equipment but after reading a little into it and finding out theres a remake should I keep on going with the original or play WOTL?
WOTL is slow unless you patch it. They also translated the script in a pseudo-Shakespearean English, which might be a matter of personal taste. Personally, I prefer the original English script because it flows better, despite the massive number of typos. Gameplay-wise, WOTL is the same, but with some extra characters and missions. I definitely recommend a guide, by the way, because there's a boss fight that can cuck your game if you don't have any saves before the fight. (He's pretty easy if you know what you're doing, but a lot of first-timers have trouble with him.)
>I definitely recommend a guide, by the way, because there's a boss fight that can cuck your game if you don't have any saves before the fight
Why not just keep multiple saves to fall back to?
Did you read the tutorial? Yes it's boring, and yes the game lampshades that it's boring with the Mimic Daravon skill putting people to sleep, but knowing how the game ticks (especially how turn order is determined) is very important.

Also it's preference but a patched WOTL or even the android port runs damn nicely.

Why are games in English so much more expensive than the Japanese versions? Is it the fault of coomlectors?

You're no better. Why do you need the husk of the game? It's dumped. It's out there to play, for free. You can play it on flashcart if muh authenticity is the aim.
Yes. Westerners are mentally ill.
>Is it the fault of coomlectors?
Yes. Thank the AVGN and retro game youtubers for helping artificially inflating 8 dollar NES and SNES games by 400% whenever they're showed or referred to as underrated gems.
