This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

There are hundreds, you're gonna have to be more specific anon. Horizontal? Vertical? Scoring-focused? Simple? How high should the difficulty be? Gradius and Toaplan games are safe bets for classic horis and classic verts respectively.
I got one stage called 'hard' at the end. Also that's a shitty excuse, you should make the game challenging by default instead of having to play for score to get the most out of the game. What a piece of shit.
>If you get into the genre via classic stuff like Toaplan, you're a hipster dad shitter
I started playing with R-Type and Gradius myself, you fucking retard. Not sure if stupid or just a troll. Either way stop strawmanning you dumb cunt.
the metal slug games are on sale right now on steam and i'm having a blast, i've got an arcade i go too so i'm usually used to playing these on stick but its nice not needing to go out to play these.
lmao always on the mods mind, stalking me like a gay bandit.

This is probably the best Famicom/NES game, in my opinion. The graphics, gameplay, music and atmosphere are all stellar. It even trumps Castlevania 3. What does /vr/ think of Gimmick! for Famicom/NES?

Is that the tank or wizard? You just have to get a grasp of the patterns.
The wizard.
Its not flawless the bosses are pure trash but besides that yeah. Anyone who says otherwise is an ultrapleb who doesnt know how to play
Yes, those are all very good titles.
I own pretty much all of them except Dracula and Penguin, those I don't really like very much.
Since we're on the topic I would also suggest a few more worthwile platformers:
Power Blade 1-2, Jackie Chan's Action Adventure, Felix the Cat, Journey to Silius, Totally Rad, Ufouria
I would still consider Gimmick a step above those other two. Good ideas overall, but really poor execution.

Had it been released in the US in 1989 or 1990, do you think that it would have reached high popularity levels? I'm aware that RPGs weren't popular in the US at the time, but given its Americana setting/Charles Schulz art style it would have probably been more digestible for western audiences than FF.

four new heroes were needed for a reason
or maybe he was buzz buzz.
Interesting thought. I just kinda figured it'd be more because he's no longer a kid, and his powers have dwindled since he no longer needs them.
seconding this, there's hardly any evidence for that to happen
Well, yeah, he became an intergalactic hate ghost with alzheimers, that is evident as the fight gets going.
But the initial surprise still works, because there's nothing anywhere to indicate that Gyiyg went through that transformation.

Like imagine if they made a new Mario game, Bowser isn't seen, but he's frequently mentioned. You've played Mario games before, so you know what he looks like, you've got an idea of what to expect. The game isn't really extraordinary or very weird, not more than typical for Mario.
But then at the end of the game, you do find Bowser, and now he's 20ft tall, muscled and roided out like fuck, to the point that his skin can barely contain his muscles, he outgrew his shell and cracked it (you even see it), and also, he's retarded now and only communicates in high pitched screams.
You'd be all "What the fuck happened to Bowser?"

Let's discuss SEGA's best console, lads. Favourite games for it? Last played game? Raddest peripherals?

Does your SG-1000 exhibit disgusting jailbars on composite using a CRTV?
Please examine it for me.
Love the Master system, it was my very first console I've ever played.
My brother got it as a gift, and I was only a few years old. But I still remember my favorite game on it was Wonderboy, Followed by Rampage and Shinobi.
I think my brother still has his in storage.
I recommend Golvellius.

It's still one of the best games ever.
What makes Doom so appealing?
11 replies omitted. Click here to view.
You're gay.
But Doom spiced things up more in terms of level design and weapons. Wolfenstein 3D is a classic and all, but there's only so much you can do with open rooms and long, flat hallways.

Overall, it's simple but not too simple.

nigegr that term wasn't even applied in this aspecr for 15+ years that it weas popular
mainly the player movement. doomguy moves at something like 90mph and theres no animation lag like most games today so you can run around and kill things as fast as you can think. its also quite satisfying to kill the monsters.
Duke Nukem 3D is better in every aspect, but Doom is still the second best FPS along with HL2.
It was probably the first video game that made me shit my pants in horror. Well, not really shit them...more like sharted them, but hey...I'm American and I DO shop at Walmart occasionally so it's all good.

Despite what people here will have you believe, it was a lot more social. Every kid I knew played videogames and now and then I would end up at someone's house playing the SNES/NES/N64 with them.

I have never heard of anyone claiming people were less social during the 90s, where are you getting that idea from?
What a faggot lmao
We're the lucky ones, it seems. All I see is "girls/normalfags invaded my hobby in 200X" this and "I miss when videogames were for just for us" that. It's surreal.

Could be good pasta, try to break it up into paragraphs and keep one outlandish statement per. End with a strong, wild and controversial message with a calm reiteration of your opening statement and you are solid.
where are the quake gimmick maps
smooth doom gud
beautiful dom a shit
Why hasn't Dakka gotten a proper release yet? It seems totally fine when I use it. No buggy stuff, everything works well, very customizable in its menu options. It's better polished than many other weapons mods I've used. My only criticism of it is that the shotgun and SSG both have grenade launcher alt fires and one of them should do something different than the grenade launcher.
it's mostly that the shotgun's garbage, and making new sprites for it drains me
I got a sprite and a half in before I said "fuck it"

Has SNK ever bothered to release Metal Slug 2 without the dreadful slowdown the game features? It really bothers me that there's seemingly no way to play this game without such an annoying pitfall.

>There's Metal Slug X

No, Metal Slug X changes the enemy placement, making it more akin to a New Game+ then a remaster.
What do you mean no way? Overclock it in MAME.
snk didn't but trap15 did, turns out it was one line of poor code that makes it run like that which trap fixed called metal slug 2 turbo but no idea where to find it so as that guy said use mame over clock which is in ingame > tab > slider controls. If it isn't there you need to enable cheats for the rom then it will be.

>No, Metal Slug X changes the enemy placement, making it more akin to a New Game+ then a remaster.

it's a rebalance because 2 is easy as fuck until last stage then really hard, x is harder early game and more balanced later.
heres the patch btw https://www.loveroms.com/download/mame/mslug2t/176606
Metal Slug 2 on the Anthology has no lag when emulated with PPSSPP, also their is blood.

What happened?

Nope, that's a matter of individual. No music is good or bad, it's just music. The only person still talking about the story that i've seen in the past 15 years is you, and you're just giving it meaningless praise and making unsourced claims about how it's still being analyzed. While it did receive a grandiose reception from video game journalists most of its sales were in Japan or as a direct result of its advertisement in Final Fantasy VII. You can keep trolling, or living in denial and throwing out the word contrarian, but the facts back me up.
whatever you have to tell yourself.

don't let things like facts get you down, just keep living your dream.
not him but getting my dick sucked by some random chick I'm not married to sounds really unpleasant
Citan literally did nothing wrong.
