This right here is my favourite game of all time. It has flaws, like any other game, but I don't understand one thing about old games, especially in this period and maybe middle 2000s.

Why are there so many spider enemies? Not only in this game but Diablo, Thief, Blood just to name a few more popular games. I don't have a problem with them, they're the right amount of scary and dangerous but why spiders and not snakes or bats or rats or something else.

Just try it and see for yourself. It's immersive, the story is good and it's packed with action. You also have a pretty nice stealth mission.

It's a game for the sort of people that like Quake and isometric RPGs in equal measure.

I’m pretty sure that people doing those backlit IPS display mods for various Gameboys are just throwing the old still working LCDs away. I’m trying to find a regular OEM LCD for the Gameboy Pocket and there’s just nothing out there.

The alternative is of course to bite the bullet on one of the fancy IPS displays, but Gameboy Pockets are so power starved with their AAA batteries that it would kill the battery life. Also I hate soldering.
>>
>>10858394
Many are sadly and stupidly tossing working parts, yes. It's a miserable thing to see. I've kept all my original screens and parts in general from the GBA modding I've done. I can swap screens if I so want with zero issues.

NTA but you're wrong. 3D fighters, like Tekken, have 3D hitboxes which move in x, y and z coordinates in 3D space. This enables the possibility of i.e. the moves that hit from the sides as opposed to just from the front or back.
2D fighters like Street Fighter have strictly 2D hitboxes which only move in x and y. The hitboxes are separate from the graphics engine thus modern SF games can be 2D while having 3D graphics. Picrel illustrates this pretty clearly. I don't know how modern MK works though, never studied it.

Wasn't MK2 just the fucking best?
I know it's long in the past, but I've always hoped someone would make a new sprite-based, motion-cap actor fighter just like MK2 but with new characters.
With all the blood, fatalities, and the eastern mysticism.

MK9 gave us the Earthrealm invasion from Stryker's perspective and it was awesome. That alone redeemed it in my eyes.

I hope so. The SNES one is mid, the Mega Drive version is probably a vast improvement, as was often typically the case.

Hadn't played in ages and just played 1 race to make a video with. As penance here's better gameplay from a much older video, which I'm pretty certain is the hardest course that the worst car in the game can achieve 1st place in.

Worst era in gaming history by far, all the "good" stuff have a better alternative in an earlier or later generation, There's no reason to play Sunshine when Mario 64 exists, there's no reason to play DMC3 when Bayonetta exists and so on. There's nothing to this gen.

All of those have equivalents in previous and later generations that feel better to play. You just have nostalgia for the xbox which is fine but that doesn't make 6th gen particularly memorable. 15 years from now we'll get kids writing about how Fortnite was the best thing to ever happen to gaming.

all the most memorable games come from that generation you stupid fuck. nobody plays N64 or older games because they look crummy and play like shit.

Tiger Woods 04/05 are easily the best but I had fun as a kid with Valora Valley Golf for the Saturn despite thinking golf was boring as all hell at the time. Not as OTT fantasy coursewise most of the time as the screenshots often make it out to be - and the more out-there ones tend to be quite obnoxious - but it was a fun time.
>>
>>10860412
This is a revised Wicked 18/Devil's Course for SNES and Mega Drive-jp. The holes are very similar but much more lenient. The original is probably the worst OTT fantasy course ever with its unforgiving nature, on a 16 bit game engine that already makes regular courses difficult to see and very slow to navigate.
