Why does retro gaming stuff skew so heavily towards Nintendo?
>inb4 some fuck catalogs every thread into a spreadsheet and proves that only 38.5% of threads up right now are explicitly Nintendo related
I mean in general. The wider understanding of retro gaming seems to focus mainly on Nintendo when they hadn't dominated the video game market since the Genesis came out. Seems strange to me.

This pic is out of date. Pic related shows that it was also called PSX by game developers and publishers. It was even on the Ridge Racer scoreboard and back cover.

>Evidently the official Japanese acronym was NGC.
stop talking like a youtube channel
Are people still using "basically" in place of "um" or have they forgotten that habit?
Are you implying something?
PS is the official abbreviation for the first PlayStation.
It's fine if you like to add the X for whatever purpose, but japanese like it simple.

What are some /vr/ games on the PS2? Like the Metal Gear games on MGS3, and the Namco Museum.

I think the Metal Slug Anthology (PS2) is the best way to play a lot of Metal Slug games, since, the actual cartridges / system cost so much.
The changed sound effects annoyed me for some reason. Also, there was something about the controls iirc?
There's also Langrisser III which , once again, looks bad on actual hardware because

I thought the only changes were made in the Wii version, not the PS2. I could be wrong. I know the Wii version for sure had visual changes

Why were mid to late 90's FPS game so much fun?
28 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.

This is the only correct answer.
What is a good fps then? Doom has still the best weapon balance there is and the original maps are still fun to play excluding those horrible Doom 2 city map. Mapping scene is still very active and Doom is the most played retro fps to this day, so consider that maybe your opinion is just a wrong one.
>easier to mod, so it became the more successful of the two
so you are basically ignoring the fact that doom was released like 3 years earlier? c'mon man duke came out the same year id released Quake

>Blood was also good, but had flaws
the biggest being a shitty sequel. Blood is objectively the best Build engine game. Duke is not that well designed. fight me

>Genesises arent expensive
yeah they are, even mega drives.
Am I the only person who emulates to save money? I hate working and only work 6 months of the year (as a software developer) so I live frugally. I really don't have a problem playing retro console games with an xbone controller on a flatscreen, I'm more interested in the games than nostalgia.
What do you consider expensive? The Model 1 is readily available for under 50 on the big sites online and can be picked up for much less if you look locally.

I work part time and I use mainly use flashcarts and modded consoles. It's nice to have actual physical games but flashcarts are just easier and cheaper.
They really aren't, but I don't play Genesis much and I like other emulator features.
Looks like you're holding back the years.

Remember when sports games were fun and had their own personality? when they didn't have to rely on real world teams and players? when they had original background music ingame instead of just licensed tracks limited to the menus?
Pic related is Baseball Stars 2 for Neo Geo, I find it incredibly fun even though I don't like baseball, it's filled with little humorous details.
What's your favourite /vr/ sports game?
22 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Yeah, it's probably fine now. Although in some of the games I feel like it's a more intrinsic flaw and not just like, "Oh, we just need to tweak the AI so that the baserunners don't just take off and get caught in a rundown if you do this one thing."

That's Pro Evolution Soccer.
Remember fictional sports like speedball and windjammers?
Remember when football teams were this white?
I do remember them, lol windjammers.

I love all the nes and snes dodgeball games, those are fucking awesome. You can be sd gundams and godzilla fucking great shit bruh.

Is the general consensus that playing the PlayStation version of Final Fantasy VI the best way to play? I want to try going through it & watch some new FMVs but I'm worried about long load times & from what I'm reading the PC version might suck. Only played the game one time on SNES
26 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
Just emulate the SNES original. The PSX port has awful loading times and slightly off music. If you must watch the two FMVs they made for it, watch them on youtube. The GBA port, while having some nice extras, has washed out graphics and AWFUL sounding music which sucks because FFVI has a great soundtrack. The ios/android remake has really nice looking background and the extras from the GBA port, but the character sprites are stupid looking. From what I understand, there is a ROM of the GBA game patched to have the SNES music, but it still sounds a little fuzzy. Could be an option though if you must have the GBA extras.
>for example I did FF4 Namingway Edition to play the Japanese release instead of the heavily modified FF2 US port
Why would you think that when it only works with the US release?
I think this is basically the same thing as the FF Anthology version of FF6. I remember Celes getting the shit beaten out of her by those soldiers in the Anthology version and seeing Siren's ass, but I'm not sure about the suicide part at the beginning of the World of Ruin.
If you want to go nostalgic. Go ahead and play the SNES version. But the GBA versions isn't as bad of a version as everyone made it out to be here.

>There's a FFVIII thread with hundreds of replies.
>But god forbid anyone bump the only FFVI thread on this board.
contrarians get buttmad at the thought of anybody making/bumping a thread about the more well liked FF games

Did Arino play Adventure of Little Ralph? This fan art implies it. I'm not sure what they're saying.

Just how bad is your Japanese?
>Just how bad is your Japanese?

Google translate tier. According to that, they're just talking about the game, and are nostalgic for it, and discussing the bright colors. I don't get how Arino is involved.
I'd say it's less nostalgia and more fetishism.
He's satisfied to reach 8-3 and leaves the rest to Arino.

So it's just speculative fan art and Arino has never played it?

I suggested the game to them in their form like a year ago. I listed a bunch of others too.

There was a thread a while back where I learned about turning a cheap WWE Brawl Stick into a badass fight stick. Well I finished mine and here it is. I used Seimitsu buttons and an LS-32-01 stick. The parts took a month to arrive from Akishop, which would have bugged me if I hadn't spent that entire time on the faceplate. First I painted it but that looked like shit. Then I fumbled with several vinyl car wrap attempts until I got it right. Well, almost right. It's a little janky around the screw holes. I should have cut them wide enough to completely clear the screw heads, but to hell with it, my parts arrived and I had enough with waiting days for 3M sheets to arrive from amazon and then spending hours carefully cutting them.

Anyway, Fight Stick thread?
How's it feel anon?
I also picked up the wwe brawlstick years ago because some store on ebay was selling two of them bundled for 40 bucks. I've always wanted to do the mods you've done, but the parts cost a lot to ship to my country.

Good shit anon. Have you been able to play anything on it yet?

I recently put a Dominux8 in my VLX to give leaf switches a try and I've been enjoying it especially for action platformers. I'm debating putting in leaf switch buttons as well.
