XBOX was the console of first person shooters. It also didn't really have an art style, more so a generic "realistic" look that made it stand out less.

>Pretty comfy but I always ask myself what happens with all of plastic that stuff eventually. Will someone care and cherish them like I did?

I kept a lot of my grandparents' small ceramics. Things like ceramic cats, doves, etc. It's all tchotchke but they really liked them, I like having it and I couldn't bear to give it away after they died. I kept a lot of their stuff, actually. My Trinitron belonged to my grandfather, it was the "guest room TV" and I doubt it had more than 2,000 hours when I inherited it. Also got some sick mid century furniture from them. My house is some weird schizophrenic cross between millenial shit that my wife buys and the 1960s. I hope that some day, my kids will keep the things of value.

Only way to play in my opinion. I have a Sony G500 which I keep in the corner of my Galant desk. After I switched to Mac I no longer had a way to drive it, so I bought a Panasonic Let's Note with VGA out for the sole purpose of playing Brood War and Rise of Nations.

Fucking christ.. I really want to play through the classic MGS games but I cannot. I've played so much of it that I cannot stomach playing through another session even after 20+ years later. Anyone else know this feeling as well?

If it's a well made game I'll find new things in the game and do much better. If it's not, if the substance is shallow, I will remember everything and find nothing new in it so will drop it. Movies are like this too, if I remember too much of it I straight up turn it the fuck off.

I beat this just recently, the game is super hard, but quite fun.
I basically just played a little bit each day, and I only had to look up a tip on avoiding one of two tough bits in 6-2, 6-3 and the final bosses.
Probably the toughest game I've finished, but i definitely needed to segment it out into small sessions.

the reason you're struggling(outside of stage 6 where the game goes full bullshit) is that you're either not taking into account enemy spawn behavior or you haven't figured out the boss's trick.
>birds will not hit you on first overhead pass, crouch and wait to kill them on their second pass back or run to the right to despawn them
>wait and jump over the leopard, then time the machete leader to not land on him, air slash bird

start, carefull with the car,do a straight line until the right turn, to enter the right turn place urself on the left grass side then steer right and take the turn on the inside (basically just ride on the right grass part of the track) straight line and then you want to get out of the turn on the left side of the track, stay there, carefull with the cars, right turn, take it on the inside and you want to get out of the turn on the left side of the turn (you want to be as close as possible to the stone wall on ur left), stay on the grass part then when you approach the tunel go smoothly to right while steering left, this while reduce drifting

tunel, left turn, place urself on the right side of the tunel and turn left, take the inside, ur gonna drift but go easy with the drifting, then take off on the right side, simple as
pass the tunel, do a straight line, left turn, place urself outside (right), when ur on the dirt part of the track downshift to 3 and steer left, you want to do a "late apex" on this one and come out in the right side of the track, if you do it correctly ur gonna take off like a fucking rocket and you will be able to shift (revs apraoching the red line) back to 4 and win some speed

now right turn, take it on the outside (left), downshift to 3, steer right and just let the car slide (of course try to correct the trajectory)
now what i like to do here is trying to get to the right side and in the midle of the long turn shift back to 4 and make a straight line and get out of the dirt part like a f1 car

do a straight line, jump, carefull with the cars

now a right hairpin turn, this is tricky

this depends on the other cars, if they are making the hairpin turn try to take the turn on the outside to prevent collision, how to do

on the inside and drift, then place urself on the left part of the track, then enter the right turn on the inside, then shift back to 4, jump, try to do a straight line in the zigzag,

now comes the right turn, take it like if it was just a big right turn, don't make zigzags, aproach finish line and u win

Spin stick and time your attack to do a spin attack, tilt stick forward and attack to stab, tilt stick right and attack to swing right, tilt stick left to attack to swing left, hold attack to charge, etc. Especially the spin always feels so good and right to do

It's the first thing I test in games with swords and more often than not you can't do anything. Examples are Prince of Persia, Fable, Genji, Crystal Chronicles or even Souls games today

more options doesn't necessarily mean better. OoT was a very good start on 3D combat but right now I would say there are two game series that influence 3D action games the most: Devil May Cry and Dark Souls not retro though.

The prior focuses on giving the player as many combat options as possible and makes that the fun of the game. Launchers, flying attacks, guns, ways to combo enemies, parries, everything you could want to do. These games are more about being stylish than just outright winning the fight. However this limits the enemy design as these games can quickly become unfun if there's too many enemies you can't combo effectively, or if the bosses act in a way that's too limiting to your arsenal.

While the latter is the exact opposite, you have an extremely narrow set of options in combat. Block, dodge, light swing, heavy swing, shoot projectile and maybe a few more options. While this seems limiting it allows the developers to focus much more heavily on challenging enemy design based on how enemies respond and require you to use the few options in your arsenal. People generally love boss fights in these kind of games for this exact reason, every single boss is like learning a song in a rhythm game since its mostly been simplified to "when do I dodge and when do I hit?".

OoT has a lot of options that lack purpose. Yes you can angle your swipes, horizontally or vertically, but what value does that have over just hitting the B button? The answer is none because enemies don't respond to things in ways that warrant you to change that. Would crouch stabbing have any value if it wasn't just objectively the best DPS in the game? I don't think so, because no enemies have a mechanic where you need to crouch to evade their attacks. Dodge mechanics are hardly even necessary because only a tiny few enemies can threaten your shield, I can't even think of any other than Darknuts.

So I think that answers your question, quality > quantity.
