Why has Dr. Mario been remade multiple times and received online play while Wario's Woods hasn't been touched since the SNES?!
mario puzzle games are all shit. yoshi's cookie. warios woods. dr. mario. they saw pac man and tetris and truly made something much worse.
Yoshi's game (not Cookie, just "Yoshi") was pretty good.
Mario & Wario too, but it was Japanese only, I guess?

Mario vs. Donkey Kong also isn't bad.
I like Wario's Woods, OP is right. It's a bit neglected. It was in Animal Crossing at least.
Tetris Attack was good, even it was just another game with a Yoshi’s Island skin.

I just beat Sword of Hope 2.

Sword Of Hope 1 and 2 are a terrific good time. I think they're easily in the top 10 GB games ever made.

How come no one talks about them?

Never heard of them. Why should I play them, anon?
For those that don't know, Sword Of Hope is a, as far as I know, completely unique meld of Point & Click Adventure and Turn Based Fantasy RPG.

Not only do you explore the land utilizing sword and magic to defeat enemies, level up, and learn new spells, you're interacting with your environment through the Look, Open, and Hit commands. You might 'Look' at a tree and see that there's something stuck in the branches, so you 'Hit' the tree and get an item. There are secret paths you will only find by Looking, secret doors you will only find by Opening, etc.

It's also the kind of game where you have to draw your own map, and this can be challenging when the game throws a curveball at you in such a way that you can't draw the map as an orderly grid, although that usually doesn't happen. Overall drawing your own map isn't a big deal and adds to the fun.

It's the kind of old RPG where it's imperative that you look up the manual and consult it frequently. The game doesn't tell you what the myriad of spells and items do, but the manual does. The only thing the manual leaves out is some of the weapons, but in general, the more expensive the weapons & armor the better they are.

If you do a little bit of grinding and level your character (characters plural in 2) it's not a super hard game. Some enemies have resistances to certain spells, some enemies are best killed with spells, some with physical attacks, etc.

Something you'll notice in the game is that the sprite work is fantastic. Some of the very early enemies in the first game are very simple, but don't let it fool you, the enemy sprites get much better later on.

I can't really say enough good things about these games. They're (as far as I know) completely unique and a really fun time. Definitely recommended.
i love your FAQ, wish i had the time to sit down and get through a game like this. maybe some day

I don't recall if anything special happens if you make your main character Prince Theo wear a dress, I think it's just crappy armor, but it would be hilarious to beat the game in a dress.

Has to be the only Point & Click Turn Based RPG where you can play as a sword wielding spell casting crossdresser.

For me, it’s the McChicken. The best fast food sandwich. I even ask for extra McChicken sauce packets and the staff is so friendly and more than willing to oblige.

One time I asked for McChicken sauce packets and they gave me three. I said, “Wow, three for free!” and the nice friendly McDonald’s worker laughed and said, “I’m going to call you 3-for-free!”.

Now the staff greets me with “hey it’s 3-for-free!” and ALWAYS give me three packets. It’s such a fun and cool atmosphere at my local McDonald’s restaurant, I go there at least 3 times a week for lunch and a large iced coffee with milk instead of cream, 1-2 times for breakfast on the weekend, and maybe once for dinner when I’m in a rush but want a great meal that is affordable, fast, and can match my daily nutritional needs.

I even dip my fries in McChicken sauce, it’s delicious! What a great restaurant.

>hardest system to program of that generation
>had the biggest library of that generation
15 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Shovelware is almost never relevant to the argument. Usually whatever console has the largest library of good games will also have the largest library of shovelware.

Console A has 500 games and 50 good ones
Console B has 100 games and 10 good ones.

I want to know how modern games are programmed. Don't worry I'm not some sperg who thinks I'll write something worth millions, but I learned some programming for my Physics career, like building hydrodynamics code on MPI, so I'm sure I can understand the programming in games even though it's quite different style and languages.

So where do I begin learning about game programming?

I love the idea of a sorceress from the future possessing a sorceress from the present. VIII has an elegance to it that is absent in other FF titles. The junction system and the spellcasting feel so good. Factor in the music, cards, characters, locations and atmosphere and it is clear that VIII is the best FF game.

Then you cry out FF8 fans are obnoxious for calling dipshits like you out. If it was so objectively bad it wouldn't have sold like it did nor received the the reviews it did back when it was released. Kindly fuck off, nigger.

SNES is the most superior video game console of all time, the graphics are beautiful, the games are very memorable and are big enough to be interesting but small enough to avoid having filler crap. From an era where shit was a little simpler, right before the internet became a thing. This is the greatest system of all time, when gaming truly had a soul. One could argue neo geo was up their but the Nintendo franchises are way more iconic.

The mini snes is nice but does not hold a candle to original hardware.

Fight me.

As someone who grew up with a SNES I agree with those who say it was too slow. When you compare some games with their Genesis (which I didn't own as a kid) counterparts such as Castlevania IV to Bloodlines its downright embarrassing.
Agreed, ps1 is up their, some decent early 3D titles and plenty of good 2d

SNES, Gameboy all the way to Advance, and the Switch are the best systems. Wii was okay. PS2 was good as well. 360 was okay for a bit till the jew DLC started to take over. Everything else sucks ass. PC was okay late 90s/early 00s.

>Residue Processing below Xen and Interloper
Finally someone who gets it.
I replayed it a month ago. Most of the weapons are worse than I remember, with the SMG being a standout in shittiness. Movement speed is slower than I remember too. The Combine are on the same level of durability as the HECU if not more so, but their braindead AI makes sure they almost never take advantage of it. Also >>7976997 , each chapter feels like it's own big gimmick, with the mediocre gunplay being what ties it all together.

The episodes were better, Hunters and Zombines are cool. They also got me to check out MMod.
