Anyone else just happy that they can now collect or emulate games from every gen and every console?

Console wars weren't even a thing for me or anyone i played games with as a kid, we would all come over and play whatever games and console we had and every kid would just go "man, i wish i could have every console to play all the cool games". The war stuff was only manufactured by advertising and only dummies care more about marketing autism than games themselves.

So on that spirit which is your favorite gen and which are your favorite titles from every console of that era?

Console war people are those who were too poor to have lots of games as a kid so they've invested themselves personally in the narrative that all those systems and games their mommy couldn't afford to buy them were actually terrible and not worth playing anyway. It's pretty sad.

Any games or consoles that live in your memory for the HYPE moreso than for the game/console itself? I was so fucking hyped for the N64. The build up, seeing the game boxes, the wonder of 3D Mario, those fleeting minutes playing Mario at demo kiosks, the weird futuristic look of the controllers... it was almost just too much for eight year old me. The thing was fucking magical. Loved the shit out of Mario, Wave Race, Pilot Wings, Shadows of the Empire, anything that took me to those magical worlds presented in a way that only the N64 could manage.

But now, I can't bring myself to play more than 5 minutes of Wave Race or Pilotwings. Mario 64 is still fun, no doubt, but it's just a fun 3D platformer that doesn't hold up as well as some of the prior entries in the series. OoT and MM are still fun, but I'd just as soon play Windwaker which I wasn't quite as hyped for. I know it is hard for anything to live up to hype, but I was hyped for Super Mario RPG and that is still as magical as ever.

This isn't a "shit on the N64" thread, just a place to discuss games where the prerelease information, anticipation, and overall vibe made a much greater impression on you than the game itself.

>forcing you to use specific jobs for specific bosses/dungeons
You could just cheese it go Monk, 2x Black Mage and 1x White Mage. But respeccing for the first Mini Dungeon was a fucking experience.

The bigger problem is that the pacing is... janky and weird.
In the original game you got the strongest job non cheese in the game(Black Belt) at the 1/3 point(Water crystal), and you then get the SUPER jobs at Eureka.
Pacing kinda also falls off a clfif once you get to the water crystal, as there is no actual path between the airship areas.
It honestly felt kinda jarring.

I am playing Thunder Force AC, I can get to the final level but not win yet. On TF4 I can only get to like stage 7 or 8 out of 10 I think.

>> No.7356449

Yeah even if TF3 /AC are on the easy side they aren't braindead by any means. TF4 is great but I don't like how blade slowdowns the game so much, TF2 an 3 aren't as impressive looking but theis performance is impeccable.

>> No.7356695

I am playing the Switch ports so slowdown is mostly a non-issue. I picked them up because I mindlessly bought (almost) the whole Sega Ages series whether or not I knew the game, just because, and I am slowly working through them.

I like them both a bunch for different reasons, TF3 feels more focused and mostly more fair, TF4 has more spectacle but it's heavy on blind deaths and it is long... I've spent a lot more time with TF4 with less progress to show for it, and that's only on normal difficulty.

I chose 4, and I really liked it. I chose it because the advertised minigames looked better for 4. I am happy with my decision because I at least know 4 is good, but I was curious what the general consensus is between 4 and 5? Do you think 4 or 5 is better?

Nice, that is pretty encouraging. Minigames are my favorite part of the series and thats what I based my purchase on, so its good to know others think 4 had better minigames.

>> No.7347971

I probably dislike 5 as much as you I just dislike 4 more. The lack of dueling, only items on item spaces are the two mushrooms and they constantly fill your inventory forcing you to use them or not be able to buy at the shop and the mushrooms gate parts of the map / star off making you run in circles, swap cards invalidating almost ever wanting to purchase big items like boo crystal balls magic lamps since they can steal your entire inventory and the spinner essentially lets you choose your target. Disliked all of these things. In 5 I mostly hate how the orbs are handed out through the random dispenser

>> No.7348110

Reasonable complaints about 4, honestly. None of them were ever a deal breaker for me, but I can see the issues. My go-to is usually 2 or 3, but I think at the end of the day 6 is my favorite.

Played a lot of Crash Team racing. Then a lot of Speed Punks. Then some Rollcage. Then a lot of Mario Kart DS. Then tried Double Dash, and it was unironically worse than every one of the above. Maps are flat crap, with long jump being a gimmick. Car behaviour is too simplistic, it is similar in DS, but maps in DS were 10x better. Car "physics" in CTR and Speed Punks is much better, I also liked one in Rollcage, though it is peculiar there. I probably had too high expectations for Double Dash and was disappointed.
