always hear the first few games are pretty good but differ depending on console. There's a pic that show all versions one all consoles and which are the same and which are best to play.

Same applies.
This also went for Prisoner of Azkaban & Quidditch World cup. it got a bit samey from Goblet of Fire onwards.

I remember having the PS2 Prisoner of Azkaban, and the GBA one, and they are entirely different.

>> No.2288163

if i remember correctly, the console versions were mostly the same (ps2 had it's usual ps2 issues), the pc version was slightly different and both gba and gbc were different.
this is how it was for the first 4 games i think.

if anyone finds that pic showing all the different versions of the potter games please post!

>> No.2288165

This is why I love 4chan. Never played this as a kid, but huge huge huge Harry Potter fan. And apparently this game is good? AND there's multiple games based on console?

Oh lawd, downloading the PC version right now.

>> No.2288170

Oh shit, I was just thinking about Harry Potter.
These games were probably my favorite thing along with the PS1 era Tony Hawks, every time I see screens of it or hear music from the earlier movies I get so nostalgic.
But there's nowhere good to discuss it ever, especially when you aren't a woman or a teenage girl.

>> No.2288174

Enjoyed the PC version back in the day, even though I've always hated the Harry Potter franchise.

The GBC version of this is the only Harry Potter game I've ever played. It was better than it had any right to be.

I loved the hell out of sorcerers stone on the gbc, but never got passed the troll fight as a kid and didn't really have the patience to grind out 8 million snakes in the garden.

Am I better off trying the PC versions or do the PS1 games emulate well enough?

>> No.2289748

They are whole different games.

>> No.2289752

And I remember that one of the first two PC ones had issues potentially revolving around running on a more modern OS.
Like a certain part being impossible to complete.

Had this on GBC and every time I started a new file I came across different rooms, different spells, different pathways to the end etc that I'd never seen before.

I get seasick playing these old PS1 games. All the geometry is constantly moving around and everything looks like it's underwater.

>> No.2291001

Related: I once had a weird instance on HP&CoS for PC. I can't find anything about it online but for some reason I spawned on a big platform, with Harry Potter's hometown below and a starry sky above. Can't walk off because invisible walls and there is nothing to do. Don't know how it happened, don't know what it's for (maybe testing?), either way it's an oddity from my childhood.

>> No.2292289

I loved that game simply because you could fly wherever you wanted in Quidditch matches, as opposed to many of the sequels where you were forced to follow the snitch.

I remember playing this at my neighbor's PC. She didn't have one of her own, it was some old shit machine, I still remember it had an AMD K6 with 166 MHz, way worse than my very first computer. Needless to say it ran like shit, I mean it was like 1 fps or something on lowest quality. But she didn't give a shit, she wanted to play that game so bad.

I remember playing (and liking) the gbc version

It was a turn based RPG if I recall.

The PC version of the first game was awesome. Especially the spooky parts for the Snape missions and the gardens for Hagrid and shit. Really nice-looking Unreal engine era game also

>> No.2294710

It was. I'm not too partial for the combat myself, but it seemed a good enough game anyway.

>> No.2294726

Spiderman 2 was the same. On PS2 it was the best movie licensed game to be made, on PC it had specific rings that were the only things you could swing from.

Snape doesn't appear in the video game adaptation of Prisoner of Azkaban. Think about it.

PS2/Xbox/Gamecube versions were based on the CoS engine. I think they also released the "revamped" version on PC at some point.

So, what are the better versions of Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets? I only remember playing the first on pc.

N64 and PSONE graphics I can handle because they were products of their time. What I can't handle are all the people who refuse to go back and play them because either the graphics make their eyes bleed or the textures look like they have the consistency of vasline on drywall. Really, if you can't deal with so called "shit graphics" then should probably find another hobby

That being said, I do have a legit problem with old pc games where the color pallete is made up of nothing but magenta and cyan

Is Harry Potter still relevant nowadays? Or did that age really end?

As a college student, I can honestly say most kids between 16 and 20 never shut up about it. In one of those "Get to know your classmates" scenarios, more than 75% of my class said that HP was their favorite book/series. I liked it as a kid too, but these kids are ridiculous about it. Its having a resurgence or something.

It's Sunday now but I'm putting the first 3 on my PC right now, hope you had (and are still having) fun brah, I'm playing with you.

Also if you haven't played the two GBC games they're fun.

Luckily I think the first 3 books where the best (Goblet of Fire starting becoming too teen/adult and less childhood fun) and all the versions of the first 3 games were the best.

PS1 and PC are mostly the same, same devs, but they have different stages and pretty significant gameplay differences, but there are tons of similarities.

It fucks up if you have an integrated graphics card I think. I tried playing it on my laptop, but the graphics get spazzing out, ran on my desktop PC withouth any troubles, both have AMD GPUs.

Most people I know (and all women I've met) nowadays consider themselves die hard Potter fans, but have only seen the movies. Blows my mind. I grew up with the books and fucking love them, on the same level as I love most Tom Clancy books. I liked the movies, too, they were pretty damn good adaptations (the first 3 are comfy as fuck GOAT), but most "die-hards" are really just try-hards, holy fuck. How can these people consider themselves fans when they haven't even read the fucking books?
