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.

The original? Masterpiece Edition? RealMyst Masterpiece (apparently that fixes bugs that RealMyst has with modern computers?)? I have a 3DS too, is the port for that any good? And for the original and Masterpiece, how? Via Dosbox? Via Scumm?

But I heard it's the 25th anniversary so I wanna check it out. I know I played it as a kid on school computers, but I only remember it vaguely as being a rather creepy game that filled me with a sense of isolation and loneliness.
Itโ€™s on Steam, fairly cheap I think
Thatโ€™s the Masterpiece edition I think. And yeah, really strong sense of loneliness.
I'm aware. But both Masterpiece and RealMyst: Masterpiece are on Steam. Also on Gog.
Point is I don't know which version.

Because Materpiece sounds like the more "authentic" version, but apparently there's game breaking bugs and compatibility problems?

And realMyst is a full 3D remake and I'm wondering if it's a perfectly fine way to experience Myst or not.
Play the masterpiece edition in scummvm.

Okay, MrIcarus video DID actually convince me to play Hideous Destructor - particularly because as someone who likes tactical shooters, its blatantly obvious from the video he must be playing it wrong (seriously, he's just standing in the open while getting shot, and then he has audacity to be SURPRISED when he gets flanked while bandaging in the middle of hostile territory, and I think I recall reading that crouching and spinning simulates stop-drop-and roll?)

Any extra tips for me aside from reading quickstart/manual? Any tactics, suggested keybinds, articles, videos, stuff like that?

Why do people hate save scumming so much when it's the most hardcore way to play? Much more than the "hardcore" method of deleting your character after one death. Call it what is and it's obvious. It's just reloading. So what's harder, reloading right before the part that killed you and figuring out how to get past it with whatever you happened to have on you the first time you got there, or reloading all the way back at the beginning where you have precognizance and an entire game's worth of time to prepare for?

If anyone knows whether some mod made them bannable or some trite crap like that, please let me know.

Traditional OP post follows anyway, in case others wanna be doing this now.

Why have they skipped rereleasing ff8? Yes I know it's a much maligned game but it still has a massive fanbase, and they've released ff1-7 and ff9 ff10 and X-2 (possibly the worst game ecer made) on psn and iOS but skipped 8 on both platforms? What's going on? Was the first one I played so those nostalgia feels are immense, just want to play it again

Final Fantasy sucks in general. It's the most overrated video game franchise in existence.
>child abuse
It's the middle child of the franchise. Normies that got on board with VII were turned away because it wasn't VII-2, for them VIII's nostalgia is overshadowed by VII & X. People that that didn't play the game thought Squall was just a grimdark Cloud. Most of the normie FF fanbase back then were guys and got turned off by the love story theme, mainly that the entire game focused on only 2 characters and the rest of your party were just along for the ride.
It doesn't help that in japan the game is kind of a sacred cow
It was a spanking and that kid was kind of a shit, good god.

ITT: Remakes that completely ruin the original game

>verdict has mention to some super unrelated arkanoid clone from 5 months ago and its price

I don't think the remake in OP's pic completely ruined the game.

The original version had a more unique style that's true, but the remake is also charming with beautiful sprites and use of colors. It's in no way what I would call 'bad'.
Holy shit this board is autistic

Hey, I've got one of those, too. This is the first time I've seen one posted. I really wonder how many of these are left. Mine came right from the Nintendo Power Catalog that originally sold it for $15 (was originally 30, but they were on clearance. Really weird that only 2000 of these lasted long enough to require a clearance). There wasn't even a box with it, it just came in a plastic back with a generic manual.

I saw one go up on ebay a little while back for $999, and that was the first time in years that I've seen one. The auction was ended by the seller without a sale.
Damn I miss Hexen. Should be at my grandpaโ€™s but I think one of my stupid cousins has it.
>strikers 1945
That's considered rare now? I know the sequel went for a lot but I remember getting my copy of the first one on Saturn really cheap like six or seven years ago.
Factory sealed Suikoden II, probably. My cousin trashed my copy back when it came out and bought me a new one. I had already beaten it so I never opened the new one.

has anyone ever figured out how to get this one token in residential without using the molotov fly glitch/handbrake car up ramp glitch/suicide flying?
doesn't make it an interesting world to explore.

vice city had lots of useless shit that didn't manage to immerse you into the game world. for the music, it felt like they just took a "best of the 80's" cd and bought the licenses for the music that was as famous and at the same time as cheap as possible. it's also weird that a game set in the 80's featured no or next to no italo disco or old school house music. instead they went all in with meme pop music. you know, the kinda stuff someone who didn't experience the 80's assumes that the 80's were all about. it's basically vaporwave before actual vaporwave. and ironically, the game attracted a younger audience than any GTA before it.
I should give GTA2 another spin. I don't think I ever finished the game, or even got very far without cheats, completely ignored the missions most of the time. I just spent majority of the time hauling vehicles to the crusher or whatever to get free items and get the army after me.

>the player is supposed to be vulnerable
Well I mean if we're talking about a remake (not a remaster), you would change how the enemy behaves to address that. The gunplay would have to be faster paced, but I could see twin sticks work on a GTA spiritual successor.

But I know what you mean though, I have to go back and replay, maybe the original style can still work fine.

Monster Rancher 1 or 2? Is it even possible to play anymore without CDs?
19 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
Funny thing it's that MR has slighty more religious stuff than Pokemon
monster rancher allows you to get monsters by putting CDs in the PS1

you can still buy monsters in game but part of the charm was putting in different CDs to see what you can get.
and you can do that with an emulator, its the same deal as a ps2 as that can read things that the ps1 can't
Emulators can read disks and isos, so that works exactly the same as it does on console, except you don't even have to actually own any disks.
actually they cracked the code on it already so you don't even have to try discs, you can just make an iso for whatever monster you want
