Nostalgia is a hell of a drug.

That being said, the N64 library is pretty weak and limited overall, especially compared to the SNES and NES. The top tier was really boundary pushing and the system had great multiplayer but I don't think most of those games have aged super well.

>> No.9943643

Console warring is boring, if your family couldn't afford more than 1 system when you were a kid, well that's your thing, you don't need to spam the internet coping about it.

>> No.9943661

To me it's an offensive library specifically because it came after the NES and SNES, both of which had incredibly rich libraries in my opinion. It's not quite a sega fall from grace given how history played out, but if they didn't have the gameboy keeping them afloat I genuinely think they would have been in trouble because of the n64.

Aside from the cutscenes it barely has anything to do with the movie. The Mega Drive version is closer in that regard. It's not as good but the music is god tier.

Maximum Carnage is a decent, maybe even underrated beat-em-up. No two player though. Some people like Spiderman Vs. Kingpin.

For Batman...Batman Returns for the SNES is excellent and the NES one isn't bad either. Adventures of Batman and Robin for the SNES is a great Konami action games and the Genesis version is an insane tech demo. It's borderline kusoge but I have a soft spot for Batman Forever.

Hello /vr/ need some advice, I own a PlayStation TV, a Super Nintendo mini, and plan on getting a PlayStation 3 to play the old Resident Evil, SMT games and anything else that catches my eye, I was wondering if it's worth getting a CRTV/Tube Television to play these games on or if I should just stick to a more modern television.

I once saw this series described on an ancient video game website as a "series of games that everyone had played but nobody really enjoys" and that description always stuck with me. Super is the best one IMO but the -vania ones aren't bad either.

What? The games are great, I enjoyed them a lot, especially 2 and 3. 1 is really good as well and really impressive for 1986, but past some point (past the 200 or 300 death toll) I was only keeping on because of pride so I could say to myself that yes, I beat this game. It genuinely is the one of hardest NES game I've beaten if not the hardest. Normies that claim Castlevania/Contra/Zelda 2 are "Nintendo hard" have no fucking clue

>> No.9943525

Yeah the Adventure Island NES trilogy, especially the original game is always left out of the "toughest NES games" conversation. I only beat the first one by using an infinite lives code with the Game Genie, and it still took me over 2 hours, some of those last few stages are maddening.

Fuck that guy. Adventure Island and Bomberman are both examples of how good Hudson Soft were at their job.

Hi OP, I know you know /vp/ exists but you want to avoid it for whatever reason. The problem is that in this thread you will just get the same problems as /vp/. Just look at it already, it's just people stating their opinion as fact. If you don't want to one of these poor miserable souls or be another drone in the army of their shit opinion, there is only one solution: play them all from the start. Then you can make your own mind and realized that people lack any objectivity and just say the games they like are the best.

GSC is pure SOUL. There's a mystical atmosphere in its temples of Bellsprout worshippers, ruins, obviously the true end being a battle in the mountains on the former champion and not gym leader/e4 and different easter eggs and pokemon that are not in the previous saga while keeping the sense that being the pokemon champion is an arduous journey, something that's not in the latter games-this is obvious at this point but even in R/S you get the sense it's going more for a comfy journey. It's fine if that's what they're going for, still, that's a distinguishing factor still kept in GSC.

It was a cheap accessory that had half the code on the receiver. I think my friends just got that alongside the original Xbox since to get the console and a game was already expensive, so to get some value getting the remote too would at least provide more. Back then, we used to bootleg a lot of DVDs from the filesharing programs, and we all used to watch a lot of martial arts flicks on the Xbox. I distinctly remember discovering Battle Royale one night there.

Mega Man is a robot as well. He takes fighting against his own kind very seriously and tries not to destroy central circuits, so they can be rebuilt.

He doesn't give a fuck about dragon, apparently. Neither does Wily.

The poster in the OP is meant for retailers, not random people. They wanted to avoid Nintendo becoming synonymous with video games because then Sega could just release a "Nintendo" themselves. It's 100% in Nintendo's interest to keep the word Nintendo associated with THEIR video games.

>> No.9943192

I agree, and I think Nintendo have been successful in doing that. Nintendo still means Nintendo, and not video games generically. If they hadn't bothered, and Nintendo had become a generic word in common use to mean "video game", then I think it would be right that they lose that trademark, but that hasn't happened.

CT has some of the most advanced sneaking mechanics in the entire stealth gaming niche. One of my favorite innovations is the noise meter showing how much noise you are making relative to the noise level of the area you are in. Its an important communication tool to the player that admittedly sacrifices immersion for fairness, but ultimately mitigates most of the “WTF? How did I alert them?” moments from the game. The AI is also very advanced and set a new bar for NPC reactivity. The graphics and lighting are stellar and still hold up today. The level design is second to none with some truly sprawling maps the player can virtually go anywhere. Sam’s arsenal consists of the quintessential high-tech spy movie gadgets and are a ton of fun to use. Everything from the snake cam to remote hacking to the sticky camera that can emit knock-out gas to Sam’s iconic tri-vision goggles add so much depth to the stealth gameplay. The depth of environmental interactivity is also present, with several different ways to open a door or take down an unsuspecting guard. The combat is also really fun, as Sam not only has the most high-tech firearms but is also a CQB master. But Sam’s health is still relatively low, so sneaking is still preferable to a guns blazing approach. The setting and story are contemporary spy movie, nothing too special or memorable.

All in all I would give the slight edge to TMA, but CT is just such a damn good stealth game. Both have an immense level of replay value.
