What's the most mediocre retro game you can think of? Not bad, not good, just eh. For me it's pic related.

I don't understand how nobody talks about the shitty controls for the MSX metal gear games. Running at 15 fps coupled with fuzzy boundaries does not make for a very nice gameplay experience

>inb4 muh software scrolling
yes i understand all the scrolling and graphics were done in software, but still it soils the experience somewhat.

you're doing it wrong you're supposed to follow OP's lead and post names of popular and critically acclaimed games

>15 fps

What are you talking about. I played it in the MSX emulator.

Look anon, when you're constantly getting up to move a 300lb CRT television to see something a little offscreen, you'll appreciate software scrolling.

>> No.10822180

what I mean is the MSX has no dedicated hardware to handle sprites like the NES has, and thus the 15 fps and sluggish controls.

>> No.10822191

Metal Gear is not a game that expects 16.67ms reaction times; 15fps in fine for what it is.

>> No.10822192

I guess not but definitely has not aged well

It doesn't impede your progress. Never mind that the game itself didn't change; we've become more ignorant.

Then it plays at 60 fps, stop lying
