It seems like Rareware would have been competent enough.. So why did they fuck up the physics so badly on this port? It feels like the gravity is twice as strong than the snes versions, and heck even the earlier gameboy games. So did they do it on purpose or something?

I'm personally more oriented towards "standard"/defusal/hostage stuff but it'd be more stuff like Mill, Strike, Lite, Fire, Oilrig etc. with some NIPPER maps and other slightly less serious custom stuff thrown in.

I like fun maps/gamemodes too but would prefer having those as options that players can nominate in chat, then the majority of the server would have to vote for them in the RTV or end-of-map vote.

>Might be fun if there was like knife arena, climbing, or other fun maps.
jesus fuck no
left classic CS exactly because there were no more normal servers, everything was either meme mod-ridden or 24/7 dust2

what would be actually good is a server with normal Counter-Strike gameplay but with both standard and custom maps (that still play like normal CS)

Do you guys think car combat guys will ever make a comeback? I really enjoy playing twisted metal/vigilante 8/rogue trip. The last car combat game released was probably Twisted Metal ps3 and none since then.

>> No.5526779 [DELETED] 

Not really. Vehicular combat games were a direct result of 3D hardware being standard but dual analog controllers not being standard.

>> No.5526830

Twisted Metal 4 is a pretty good album, that also comes with an alright game. I got a multitap for it, but I usually couldn't get my brother and the kids across the street to all sit down and play it. The special kids down the street decided Dragula was called "Dog Pounder", because they interpreted some of the lyrics that way:
>Dead I am the dog, hound of hell you cry

I hated having them over because they wouldn't stay still and let me play Neopets, even if I put them in front of another game. I think one of them scribbled a whiteout marker on the door of my GX TV.

The genre never really went away, if you count games like World of Tanks and WarThunder. Planes are more fun. I started playing WarThunder just because there wasn't a Star Wars game to play. Disney really fucked up there. A whole crop will not have xmas morning video game nostalgia for their product. The episodes are pretty good tho.

>> No.5526934

Before rocket league I would have said absolutely fuck no, but I wonder if that game helped bring back the car action genre back.

What makes retro gaming so fun is pretending you're one of the characters. For instance, I like to dress up like Simon from Castlevania II and go around jumping on turtles and mushrooms.
When people give me strange looks as I jump passed them I have to explain that I'm acting out a DOS-ROM character, but they're usually very insistent that I'm more like Space Harrier on the SEGA System.
What can I say? It's a paradox.

So I got inspired by a post in another thread that mentioned what it was like to play viday in 1978, and I was thinking I'd do something similar, but would give myself another year because I want to play Intellivision. In addition to that, I'm going to forsake the Internet and other technology that would not be available post-1979. Wish me luck.

This. The other available PCs becomes NPCs in competition with you and they level up parallel to you so that if you get in the wrong position with the wrong NPC you can have a basically unwinnable battle on your hands

This is also true although my mind went the other way towards thinking OP might like some of the old school point and click adventure games where you absolutely have to keep track of branching paths and multiple saves to backtrack if you don't want to get stuck

>> No.5526950

You have to embrace losing. That's sort of the point of the genre. It's not necessarily that much easier to win with save scumming because you can still permanently fuck yourself over. Bjt it sucks the tension and actual fun out when you approach it like an rpg with save states.

Each time you die, you learn something from that failed run and figure out new kinds of strategies to deal with the shit you run into. At first they can seem like slot machines to get the right skills or items, but over time you realize it's really your skill as a player at working with what you do have on hand that is what gets you wins and really shows how incredibly fun the genre is. Bear in mind when you're playing Nethack and want to rage quit because you think the RNG is the reason you're losing, there high level players can have win streaks of multiple games in a row. The best player's is 38 ascents consecutively if I remember right.

Don't get me wrong, I like it a lot, but it's definitely not my favorite 2D Mario. But I always see people list this as not just the best Mario game ever, but also one of the best games ever. Why? It was very rushed and a lot of features were cut. It's laughably easy. The soundfont is pretty janky. The graphics look fine but are incredibly simplistic by SNES standards, it looks closer to an NES game than a lot of the games that would come after on the same platform.

Again, I'm not saying it's bad by any means, but it's not THAT good. I've beaten it twice in my life and I really don't have any desire to do it again. Am I missing something? Why does it get the level of praise it gets?
