Was the original Xbox the last console to feature 6 face buttons on it's main controller?

I want a dual-shock d-pad with 6 buttons on the right to play emulation for ages, these are shitty quality but i never owned one. So I settled for sega-styled d-pad instead, at least i'm familiarized with those.

Why did 32bit 3D action games age so poorly? They aren't even suitable for small children anymore, yet 8bit & 16bit rpgs aged really well and have something to offer all ages.

>>8005405
It's true, they were bonkers crazy doing such a huge multimedia project for an unknown IP. I assume they thought since the anime was exploding in America at the time, it would bring in more sales. From what I understand, it went over really well in Japan. Today the IP is almost forgotten though. Only us hardcore fans really remember it. I bought the games and watched the show on Cartoon Network and bought the soundtrack at a Japanese festival (2004?). I also ripped out every ad I could find in anime and video game magazines and hung it on my wall

I mean, that's a perfectly fine opinion to have. I just personally feel it's pretty much equal to them in all aspects. Twilight Princess should have had a direct sequel akin to Majora's Mask.

There are several Zelda games that could be considered underrated, and the 3D kiddos wouldn’t know they even exist.

Yeah, hard in a puzzle kind of way. You have to hit certain enemies in ways which assure you won't be pushed off of a ledge, or find a good route around bubbles. They were never hard in that they were damage sponges who did tons of damage, and pretty much every enemy has a cheap startegy/tactic to kill them quickly, which is satisfying to discover.

That doesn't make up for anything. A new game ought to have new things which are actually good.

you can play space battles offline. and many of the maps were pretty awesome.

Stuff from the 80's mostly. I never really played a lot of pinball back in the day. But I'd see them around either at the arcade or at the mall. The artwork of the cabinets from that era always seemed to be a lot more colorful and eye catching to me than machines from other eras..

>what game should I start with?
It's best to play them ir order of release but you can start with Metal Gear Solid for PS1 because it contains a summary of the older game's stories in disc. MSX2 games don't have a detailed story anyway but are very fun and inovative for the time. The PS1 game is where the story starts to look like a movie plot with very cool cutscenes.

[MSX2] 1987 - Metal Gear
[MSX2] 1990 - Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
[PS1] 1998 - Metal Gear Solid
(Integral version has extra training missions. There's a Gamecube remake but with different camera and atmosphere)
[PS2] 2001 - Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
(Substance version has extras. Was ported to HD for PS3 and X360)
[PS2] 2004 - Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
(PS2 Subsistence version has best camera. Subsistence version was ported to HD for PS3 and X360)
[PS3] 2008 - Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
[PSP] 2010 - Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker
(Was ported to HD for PS3 and X360)
[Consoles and PC] 2014 - Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Also, forgot to say this:
>Sons of Liberty or Substance?
Main game is equal on both versions.
Substance have a lot of extras, like "what if" short stories, some training missions and a barebones skate mini-game with a cool punk version of the theme song.
The skate mini-game is not present in PS3 and X360 versions.
PC have an old forgotten port of MGS2 Substance that recently got re-released on GoG but the PC version lacks the skate mini-game as well.
