I never loved, or even liked, a terrible game. A terrible game might have had impressive sound and graphics but for me it's always been about the game play. Of course a lot of babies say games I like are terrible because the sound and graphics isn't to their taste and the game doesn't have 3 layers of deep meaningful fan imagined subplots. So I guess it's all subjective.

"Adding to the industry's woes was a glut of poor titles from hastily-financed startup companies. These games, combined with weak high-profile Atari 2600 games, such as Pac-Man and the video-game version of the 1982 hit movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, seriously damaged the reputation of the industry."


It's a shit game. You can play devil's advocate all you want while blaming young people but it's shit.

>> No.2236067

you are a complete moron if you actually think it caused the crash, seriously.

>> No.2236072

it's not playing the devils advocate, it's just that it's really NOT that bad of a game. The reason the game failed wasn't because it was horrible, but because at the time people didn't expect or understand a game that you actually had to sit down and devote a long time to learn how to play, people were more used to simplistic arcade shooters and pac-man like games. Even the adventure games of the time were more like interconnected minigames than what would be considered an adventure game now.

>> No.2236075

If a deluge of horrible games saturating the market like E.T. (developed in 5 and a half weeks, great, unappreciated game right) didn't cause it, then what DID cause the game crash?

By the way I never said E.T. was solely responsible. However it certainly didn't help things.

I highly doubt it's as deep and misunderstood as you claim.

i also got 3 original psx controllers (no sticks) and a official multitap for 2.99 each

i played this in a local "comet" (britbong) store when they used to have 1 of every console out to play. i was fucking blown away.. that tim burton atmosphere, the music, pushing crates, tailspinning pumpkin enemies, the amazing visual style.. i got dragged out the store by my parents but when i identified the game i HAD to have it. i looked FUCKING EVERYWHERE for that game. every game store you can imagine, every supermarket game shelf..any place that did games.. i just couldn't find it. i even checked those "order a game over the phone" adverts in the back of playstation magazines.

then while visiting another town with my parents i saw it. i saw it in a 2nd hand VHS rental store, on the "ex rental games for sale" shelf. it had that familiar cracked case look with a half torn off price label, and several new price labels applied one on top of the other, hidden half revealed in a pile of old PS1 games i vaguely remember from poor magazine reviews.

i bought it. i loved it. couldn't get past the cargo ship level because it was such a hard game.. the open exploration, atmosphere, art style and feel of the game were amazing. it felt really unique.

>> No.2237002

E.T. was the straw that broke the camel's back. It wasn't the sole cause, but with how much of a high profile failure it was it ended up being the harbinger of the end.

Here's mine. Not a troll post. I loved this game as a kid and played the fuck out of it, but honestly the original version of FF is pretty terrible. It's grindy as all hell and full of glitches. I had two major game breaking ones, one in the final dungeon that made it take three tries just to actually finish it.

That said, some of the remakes especially the GBA one make it a much more solid game. Ditto for FFII, the Dawn of Souls version of which is legitimately fantastic. (if you like the SaGa leveling system)

>> No.2241574

>The PS1 version controls like shit

How? It's very precise and only takes like two minutes to get used to it. Or is it too slow for you?

>> No.2241664

A lot of people have issues with the original Tomb Raider control scheme because it is clunky and if you want to play it like a 3D action game you'd be disappointed. But it's basically Prince of Persia in 3D, and when looked at like that the control scheme works quite well.

I can't understand at all how anyone could get stuck not being able to make a jump though. Everything is basically a grid in those games, there was never a challenge in lining up a jump to where you want to go. Unless he was just stupid and got stuck trying to jump somewhere impossible and then gave up without finding the right path.

I had Ghostbusters for the NES. The stair climbing is obviously terrible.

But I liked the repetitive work of driving somewhere, catching ghosts, dropping them off at the HQ, and so on. It was relaxing compared to other NES games.

When I was a kid I loved the Gameboy port of Street Fighter II. Now I realise that it wasn't such a good port even for Game Boy's standards (see other fighting games on GB like Killer Instinct and Battle Arena Toshiden to see what I mean).

I also liked The Amazing Spiderman for GB. After seeing AVGN's episode on crappy Spiderman games I was like "Eeeeeh? But it was a good game.".
