What's the most mediocre retro game you can think of? Not bad, not good, just eh. For me it's pic related.

I don't understand how nobody talks about the shitty controls for the MSX metal gear games. Running at 15 fps coupled with fuzzy boundaries does not make for a very nice gameplay experience

>inb4 muh software scrolling
yes i understand all the scrolling and graphics were done in software, but still it soils the experience somewhat.

monkey island

>>10822154
you're doing it wrong you're supposed to follow OP's lead and post names of popular and critically acclaimed games
>>
>>10822159
oh i saw metal gear and i felt the need to point out that flaw and i wanted to see how other people felt about that.
>>
>>10822154
>15 fps
how about you play the actual msx version and not the shitty mobile demake

as opposed to physically moving your tv around?

>>10822162
What are you talking about. I played it in the MSX emulator.

>>10822165
Look anon, when you're constantly getting up to move a 300lb CRT television to see something a little offscreen, you'll appreciate software scrolling.
>>
>>10822165
what I mean is the MSX has no dedicated hardware to handle sprites like the NES has, and thus the 15 fps and sluggish controls.
>>
>>10822154
Metal Gear is not a game that expects 16.67ms reaction times; 15fps in fine for what it is.
>>
>>10822191
I guess not but definitely has not aged well

>>10822191
it'd play better as a texture adventure desu

It doesn't impede your progress. Never mind that the game itself didn't change; we've become more ignorant.

>>10822168
Then it plays at 60 fps, stop lying

Are CRTs gyroscopes now?
