So anon.. Why do you pretend not to use save states?

>> No.6686120

i just use the normal save function

>> No.6686138


Well little mouse girl, I never pretended I don't. I use them in a way I think I will get the most enjoyment out of games, which means especially skipping purely time consuming steps which in themselves do not make much of a problem. As a kid I would have had the time to retry over and over but now they are just useless time wasters. Actually I usually go by rule of three, if I have to redo a section three times which itself does not make any problems to get to a section that does, then I put a savestate before that one that does afterwards.
I also gladly savestate at the beginning of a level, fuck continues. The funny thing is even though they are then actually useless extra lives still have the same appeal, MUST HAVE, MUST COLLECT, so that doesn't change anything.

Save states are a godsend!
After all I'm not a fucking kid anymore. I've got a life, even if it's a shitty one.
Break time runs out while I'm on a boss fight? Save state.
Call from work while I'm playing? Save state.
Friends/family can't get shit done on their own and start yelling for help? Save state.
Pizza delivery? Save state.
Getting too tired to continue? Save state.
The detractors can kiss my hairy ass. Save states are the best

kringe. Using save states in the middle of level is pretty unacceptable no point in even playing the game. At least restart the level if you run out of lives.

We've discussed this but GBA is a classic retro handheld. It is widely considered to be a continuation of the SNES design philosophy and the majority of its library is made up of classic retro 2D style games, therefore it officially falls under the retro category and is thus permitted to be discussed here. Unfortunately the sticky is out of date but I understand it is currently in the process of being updated.

You can find Game Boy Players relatively cheap if you only buy the hardware. You don't need the official startup disc since the SD Media Launcher allows homebrew like Game Boy Interface to be launched, which produces better picture quality than the official software anyway.

>> No.6686029

You could just use a hacked Wii plugged into a crt tv to do the same, but as you're well aware /vr/ is the kind of place where people boast about having as close to the authentic hardware as possible when they play video games.
The guy above me is also right, you don't need the cd to use the game boy player if you have a homebrew solution on hand. Hell the Game Boy Inferface with Swiss homebrew gives you more and better configuration options for how it runs the games compared to Nintendo's own solution.

>> No.6686043

I personally like the SD2SNES method with the new Super Gameboy emulation.

T-thank you, I guess the whole series is good

>> No.6685890

Everything in the classic series is good, all the numbered titles from 1 to 11, as well as Mega Man & Bass aka Rockman & Forte on SNES

Notable mention also for:
- The game boy games, the first 4 ones follow the NES games but with new stages. The 5th one is whole new game however, so if you have to play one out of those, play that one.

- The Megadrive port of MM1/2/3, it's inferior but it adds new stages which are pretty cool.

X series: from 1 to 4, everything else after that ranges from average to shit

Worthy spin offs:
The Power Battle series on Arcade
Rockman Battle&Chase. Sadly the western version has cut version.

Other series: Mega Man Legends 1 and 2
Battle Network and Starforce series are their own thing but they're very good if you're into action RPGs

>> No.6685930

You can stop after X, and skip 8. People will try to tell you that X4 is the last good Mega Man, but it's terrible. X2 and X3 are just X but worse, and 11 is fine but soulless; so:

>> No.6685936

Also if you just want the best ones, play 2 and 4. 1 top tier too, but you've played that already
