This is the single shittiest fucking argument I have ever heard for any retro game ever. I see idiots who've never picked up a decent game in their live use this line to try and invalidate just about every good retro game, from Mega Man 2, to Super Mario RPG, to Ocarina of Time.

If you use this argument, I automatically assume that you only care about graphics and should be banned from /vr/ since it's obvious that you've never played a retro game all the way through.

This Perfect Dark speedrun has never been beaten, but the problem is that nobody can prove or disprove its veracity.

Would've been possible using the RE2 technique and a 512 Mbit cart, with maybe one or two cut FMVs if needed, but there's no way anybody had the understanding of the console needed to pull it off in 1997. It coming out years later would've been a waste of time.

Final Fantasy VII on the N64 would be a completely different game. Most of that game's design decisions were based around the limitations of PS1 hardware. You would have gotten a fully 3D game instead. N64 and PS1 games tended to have extremely different decision choices based on hardware strengths/limitations.

I usually see a lot of times people asking which of these two is better for some retro gaming on the go.
Instead of the usual wars, let's see objectively what each portable does and does not.

PSP 3000:
>Besides playing its obvious exclusives
>Best PSX portable emulation
>Average to subpar SNES emulation
>Average to playable Wonderswan color PC Engine
>Perfect GB, GBC, Game Gear, GBA, CPS1, CPS2 and Neo Geo.

Does not/not worth trying/Cons:
>N64 and DS.
>By this day and age the batteries are lasting less and less
>PSP Go is uncomfortable if you have normal-sized hands.

New 2DS XL:

>Besides it's obvious exclusives
>DS but not retro
>Perfect GB, GBC, GBA, Game Gear, Genesis, SNES. PC Engine, possible Wonderswan.
>Can create icons for specific games for the menu so they can look nice
>New XL models have two extra buttons which some emulators take into account
>Screen is nice
>New 2DS XL has a nice black variant and aesthetics

Doesn't run/don't bother/cons:
>PSX (not even playable)
>"Harder" to hack compared to the PSP

Please feel free to add or correct, everything is based on my own personal experience with both.
I've decided each covers different needs and if you have both, you don't need to defend one over another.
If you HAVE to pick one, this may be the thread for you.

There's already more worthhile native games on those than you have time for so you should play those. Neither of these devices have enough power to emulate 16-bit very well. The best portable retro emulation is on a phone/tablet with gamepad and power bank.

If we cut modern game budgets and dev teams in half across the board, do you think games would go back to being as good as they used to?

9 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.4919016

A good chunk of those games were massively high-budget for the time, with large dev teams. FF7, for example, spent around US$214 million (adjusted for inflation) between development and a massive marketing spend in the US alone, and Parasite Eve 2's development team was IIRC split between Japan and LA for reasons that probably made sense at the time.

>> No.4919018

Japanese developers were obsessed with traveling for authentic atmosphere in their games. Parasite Eve, in particular, was priding itself on being "American".

>> No.4919020

And yet they still came out with 5-6 games a year spanning a multitude of IP's. Compare that today, where even including all of the third party devs they plublish for they only release 2-3 games per year, and most of those fall into the same three IP's; Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest or Kingdom Hearts

>> No.4919384

>take for example Kojima; he wanted to make a game, but no one would listen to him, so he ended up doing a majority of it himself on paper first.

Since when has Kojima ever wanted to make games? The guy has been making pseudo movies pretending to be games for years.
>If we cut modern game budgets and dev teams in half across the board, do you think games would go back to being as good as they used to?

Now as for your post, this still wouldn't fix games. Modern technology pretty much requires large teams for that AAA development. Small teams would need to take way to long on one game just to finally ship it. In short, gaming technology got too advanced and I would also say that the thinking/desire from developers to even truly make great games like in the past isn't there either. A lot of them might think they want to make great games but their thinking is all fucked up in the first place. Think of all of these shitty social justice western developers. You think these people don't want to make what they think is good games? That is their thinking. They just also think making good games is shoving in their shitty ideology as well. So the thinking itself is fucked. If you want good games again like the past you're going to have to have the industry rolled back to lesser technologies and to a point where games weren't as popular. This is impossible.

90% of Shining in the Darkness takes place in dungeons. Dungeon crawlers were pretty big in Japan back then, and I'm pretty sure that was the goal of Shining in the Darkness. Even the title of the game implies that it's a dungeon crawler.

I agree that a lot of JRPG's have first person moments in them. The original Phantasy Star on the Sega Master System has first person dungeons, but it is not a dungeon crawler.

Honestly.

They had better be 100% essential and on board with fixing shit in order to live, IMO. And this rarely happens. They're usually a quirky bonus character with "mixed feelings" etc. They should be killed. Traitors and schemers and fuck-ups. All of them.
