Ocarina of time and majora's mask don't really feel like "nintendo" games, they don't really feel kiddish. Later zelda games, do, however.

It's kinda funny to think that Bottom of the Well, the Shadow Temple, and Stone Tower are made by the same guys that did super mario 64

I promise you this poster >>9952815 is an undiagnosed schizophrenic.
>pokemon artificial success.
This schizo is still shaking with rage 25+ years later because his parents didn't let him collect Pokemon cards or buy him a GB Link cable so he pretends it was a fake popular game and not an overwhelming success.
Oh that's supposed to be their hair? I've always seen it as blood and guts since I was a kid.

Probably has more to do with the limited colour palette though, same reason Link has pink hair in LttP. (I always just saw him as a redhead like me, representation matters!)
Or just a tourist from /x/ who wants to discuss vidya from time to time. But then again /x/ has a lot of posters who are legitimately mentally ill
You're good, man. I like you. You're definitely not part of the problem.

Frankly, I used to stick up for Genesis as I always used to see it attacked by SNES fans (I did grow up with Genesis, GG, and Dreamcast, though, but also N64 and Game Boy). That was the only time I used to see fanboyishness from a Nintendo fanbase. But now I constantly see the opposite (especially on here), just because Super Nintendo is a Nintendo console. Why can't we all just get along and talk about the games, at this point?

As for PS1 having "movie games", I thought that was just a meme (because of all the FMV marketing). Don't people generally consider MGS and Silent Hill as generally great games even for "hardcore gamers"?

PS2, I didn't realize people were attacking it for that, so I should pay attention more. The only thing I noticed recently is hearing that it was "underpowered" and "hard to develop for". I really wish I had a PS2, growing up. It's a beautiful console (fat model, at least) with a lot of great games.

I usually miss the third-party fanboy war threads. I see a lot of praise threads for Namco (etc. developers) games, but I guess I also need to pay attention to "this vs. that arcade developer" discussions.

There's definitely a place for criticizing and comparing consoles, but the gayness that comes from hating one company's games simply because it was in competition with another console is gay. I usually interpret Bernie-posting in Saturn threads as just innocent memeing by fellow Saturn enthusiasts, for example (though maybe it's not), but hatred of Saturn is common here besides that thing and it is gay, since it's a great console.

Bart Simpson's Nightmare was actually an incredibly solid game, which is shocking because almost everything Acclaim put out was hot garbage. It had a kind of "rogue-like" gameplay loop with a lot of variation in game genres, almost like Warioware or Mario Party.
Yeah, those and the konami beatemup. No matter what these idiots say, everything on third and fourth gen were garbage.

>Are the 6th gen Simpsons games the only decent ones?
Yes, in regards to consoles that is. Simpsons Hit & Run is the only good Simpsons game to ever release as far as I'm aware. Even then it's not perfect and the driving is a little less than stellar. Simpsons only had a competent game outside consoles in the Arcade by Konami
It's sad when they go like that.

How? You play an RPG and just skip all the dialogue? Toad tells you at the beginning you fucking retard
What? I beat the game so I don't get what you're trying to say.
Make sure you're buying decent equipment at the store and equipping it in the menu.

Even with abusing save states the game is still not that easy

i got the achievement for this game by save stating literally every 0.5 seconds
You just flip the controller over dumbass
No one said the game was bad. It was still more interesting than rewatching your fave movie again and provided for a different kind of entertainment. And your friends were all lit so they also played and shared tips about CASTLEVANIA. And you sucked because you don't like CASTLEVANIA which is based af.
That's why it's fun. Although if you use save-states it kills the fun.
First 2 levels are a joke. 3 takes a bit to learn the crow timing. Use Boomerangs on Mummies. 4th level is a pain cause of the platforming and flea men. Get Holy Water, keep holy water till the boss or you're fucked. Keep holy water all through 5 for axe knights, if you lose it you may as well wait for continue cause you probably aren't beating death without it. Learn Dracula stage on your own it's a right of passage. Watch speed runs and pros if you have too.

Is this a fake or an original copy of the game ?
thank you for all help :)

Can I take a moment to talk about how much I fucking hate Bootlegs? Cheaply made, games tend to crash, have English>Taiwanese>English translations for some fucking reason or straight up refuse to boot after a few plays. What the fuck is it trying to fool? Grandmas and people who don't autistically read every Ebay listing detail? Not to mention it costs the exact same as the real deal, so it's a straight-up scam.
Don't even get me fucking started on controllers either. Buttons are all fucking stiff and tend to get stuck, plus the D-Pad can ALWAYS be pressed down because these bastards don't know how to make a proper d-pad for some ungodly reason.
Fuck chinks, fuck scammers, fuck 3rd party companies, I shouldn't have to meta-game my online shopping you fucking assholes.
Nah brah, just buy the adapter, it's expensive but it's the best way to play that game in true 1080 p
so outside of getting scammed out of more money than you would've payed if you'd have the gift of foresight what exactly is the problem with playing fakes? can they break your console or something?

Hey you. Describe that impression of playing metroid on an nes with a wood paneled crt.
The moment the game started, I was instantly transported into this futuristic, alien world. The graphics are out of this world! The colors are so vivid, and the characters and environments are so detailed. It feels like I'm actually exploring another planet! And the gameplay, it's like nothing I've ever seen before. I take control of Samus Aran, this awesome space bounty hunter, and the way he (he's gotta be a dude, right?) moves and fights is so smooth and responsive. It's like I'm in total control of his every move. And the levels in this game are massive! They're like these complex mazes filled with hidden paths and power-ups. It's all about exploring and discovering new areas. I feel like a real space adventurer, uncovering secrets and battling alien creatures.

I remember playing a lot of shmups when I was younger, with some fond memories for some that were included in Galaxy of Games compilations in from 2002, like Raptor: Call of the Shadows, Nebula Fighter, Demonstar, Drone, and Moon Buggy, along with a bunch of other games. A lot of the games were older than the compilation's release, but they were still tons of fun. Do you all have any old shmups you love? Or any obscure PC/DOS games you remember fondly?
Also, if anyone can help, I'm struggling to remember a shmup that I played around the same time I played the others. Most of the computers I played on were school computers and clones of each other, but one computer had a couple more games than the rest. I'm pretty certain the game I'm looking for isn't on any of the GoG compilations, I could be wrong though. All I remember is it's 2D scrolling, enemies come from the top, you control a weaponized semi-truck, the background is a highway and rocky/sandy brown outside the medians. the road was not very wide, I can't remember enemies, and the graphics were rudimentary. The intro screen was either black or navy/purple (color blind) with sans serif text and potentially a small logo. The music in the background was licensed, had something to do with "hero" or potentially "Save the world", and it may have been Christian, like "Get down" by Audio Adrenaline. Any help would be great.
Bump for interest

Steambot Chronicles aka Bumpy Trot.

Not the best game ever, it has lots of flaws but still it's the most beautiful and endearing videogame I've ever played.
Is this good? I remember seeing this in every GameStop back in day and hemming and hawing over it the whole time but never pulling the trigger on a purchase.
Yep, it's great. More people need to play it. Often ends up in a lot of hidden gems lists for good reason.

I played it a few years ago, it's great. A ROMANTIC SCRAP METAL ADVENTURE!

Completely agree, very beautiful and endearing. Touring with the band to cozy little towns, playing harmonica and getting into low-stakes robot battles. It's a shame so few people have played it.

>VGA to Component transcoder or similar (like $60 on ebay I already had a spare around from my main computer)
>X-arcade Tankstick (found for around $100 on FB Market)
>Sony KV-27FS120 (was $20 at some second hand store 8 yrs ago when I got it to play Melee)
Why aren't more people doing this?
>Why aren't more people doing this?
Because people are stupid. Pay $100 and get a small, unassuming metal box that can play anything you want for free while also acting as a complete home entertainment system and a regular computer on top of it all? That would make too much sense. It has no sex appeal for them. They need to shell out tons of money for locked down shitbox consoles, brand name emuboxes or the like. They'll argue against it six ways to Sunday on the basis of "uhh I just want convenience!" or something equally retarded, but it's all cope.
>the Pi 4 can't even do N64 properly,
nothing can.
the only hope will be an N64 core for Mister, which only just recently began development.
I don't do this because I already had a raspberry pi laying around that I wasn't doing anything with, and it's good enough. Like most people, I already have the 5th/6th gen consoles I care about and it works for everything 1-4. I think that's the case for the average pi user.
That doesn't solve my problem dumbass. I need something I can never shut up about. I can't afford a mister, let alone an ev.

It's one of those details that made her character so memorable and appealing. Square and/or Woolsey managed to squeeze a lot out of a few lines of dialogue.
