I bought Constructor for nostalgic reasons recently and uninstalled it after two days. Even through my nostalgia goggles I sorta remembered it as being more of a novelty than actually good gameplay. Plus I sucked major ass at this game, and still do now: only barely got to level 3 tenants before either failing or giving up.

The controls are highly unintuitive, there's zero AI (as in, workers will ignore a fight going on near them and there is not even a setting to change this behavior), the damage model is ridiculous (you can have 10-20 guys gang up on 1 enemy and still take a long time beating him down and maybe lose 1 or 2 guys before they do so).

I know I'm not supposed to play this like an RTS where I just send an army to take down my opponent, but the way they seem to have made that unfeasible ist just plain not fun.

>Starting in Holland — where soccer-fan violence is a more serious domestic issue than in any other European country — you direct a gang of thugs wanting to get to the match. Moving through the isometric (and admittedly well-detailed) cityscape, you loot stores for cash, guard piles of bricks to use as missiles, chant boorish songs to attract NPC “supporters,” and then throw down against the opposing side’s mob.

If you play the Bug's Life demo found in the Toys R Us - Interactive CD Sampler Disc and press pause while looking through the telescope there are broken sprites on the screen. This happens in every emulator I've tried and even in the burned version I tried on my real PS1. I wonder why.

Well it doesn't matter anyway because Pizza is considered a food, along with all his many variations (yes even those who aren't enjoyable by any margin), from the clusterfuck of ingredients that it is made of, it is a food.
So by that Logic, video game are a form of art because it's a clusterfuck of Drawings, Music and sometimes they might even be the fucking brushes to do art (Level editors and modding) so yeah Video games are obviously art

I'm interested to see what games you have positive feelings for that you hated playing.

Pic related because you spend more time doing shitty/frustrating/boring bosses instead of the cool stealth. The stealth and the avant-garde storytelling through gameplay are really epic and then it's infuriating when you get thrown into another damn boss battle where you have to use the shitty weapons or the boring cqc.

Holy shit why do these guys make their emulators so hard to use on purpose? 10 years ago you could just download an emulator and run a game with some tweaks to plugins and speedhacks, has having a simple functional UI fallen out of fashion?

The starting kid is the one that uses snowballs and dodgeballs, and new weapons are used by the other kids. I thought there was a set order but watching playthroughs I'm not entirely sure.

Like here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2tbdCdsxzM
Starting as Stan (3 in the portrait order), Cartman (1) uses the plunger gun and dart gun when it's picked up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1hp27a2QCo
but in this one, starting as Cartman (1), Kenny (4) uses the plungers and darts.

In both these playthroughs Kenny is the kid that's picked up first, so that's not it.
>>
>>6472237
I remember I played the game with other characters but iirc it didn't matter who you played as, the weapon order would be like that (except when you're alone or missing some weapons).
That being said I didn't play the N64 Version, I played the PC and PS1 versions of the game.
>>
I'd always bring my PS1 and N64 over to my relatives' place, but they'd never let me play this game. My grandparents would let me watch the show and I'm pretty sure my grandma was the one who bought the game for me. I was like 10 at the oldest.

Found one of these in a box of gifted stuff. I remember having this as a child and it being my first email. It was awesome when you could find players to play and the music was pretty catchy. A buddy of mine says that the home brew community is or has got it up and running again. So far I haven't found anything besides old forum posts from years ago. Does this thing work anymore or is it just a trip down memory lane?

No gameplay, but considering this is being reverse-engineered by some dudes in their free time, it's some nice work.

Hello people
I decided to finally try and play First Person RPGs on the lines of Wizardry and such, due to me realizing I have the Might and Magic series, Wizardy 6+7, and most of the old DnD games on my GoG (and Steam) library.
I'd like to start a discussion with you fellows regarding this genre I have long time ignored, maybe hoping for insight, tips, and other games suggestions.
