Recommendations thread.

I remember ages ago that there was a plan to make a /vr/ recommendations images.

Any of those ever turn out, I'm particularly looking for NES/SNES.

>> No.2401282

there's no point. the ones on the /v/ wiki are good enough, and racketboy's is even better

No, because /v/ has a whole wiki for that already and we don't need /mu/ tier charts. C'mon lil bros, just chill and play as much retro vidya as you can.

And i don't see the problem with the ports, only 3 of them are ports and they are good ports.

but this exists already?

>> No.2401928

>DKC1 instead of DKC2
DKC2 felt mechanical and contrived. Maybe it was a lot of fun, but DKC1 was just as fun, had a more solid atmosphere, felt more natural, and it's a lot more well-known.

Though it wouldn't have been a bad decision to put both of them on the list.

screw off and stop trying to dictate what we do and don't want to us.

>> No.2401960

I really wish people would stop saying that Aconcagua has a low language barrier. While it's technically true that you can play it without knowing japanese, and yes the cut scenes are in english, but the text is NOT and there is A LOT of text, since it is a fucking TEXT HEAVE ADVENTURE GAME, and if you can't fucking understand the text in an adventure game what the fuck is the point.

So popular games would never be recommended? Also both images were posted on /vr/ before. You can check the archive.

>/vr/ can't recommend more than four games each for the SMS or GG
>/vr/ can't be bothered to fit their entire description of each game into the image

But seriously, the best thing I can recommend on the SMS is to get an NES instead.

Seriously though, /v/ has a pretty well organized recommendation wiki, as linked >>2401927

It's a good start, and if you feel like something is missing, it's a god damn wiki. Edit it. I added Sonic 3 Complete to the "Definitive Editions" page a while back, and I also went through a few pages and normalized the usage of genre names like "shoot em up" vs. "shmup", so everything would sort by genre well. Shit took me like 10 minutes that I would have otherwise spent dicking around anyway.

Splitting it off into a specific /vr/ version just needlessly fractures people between even more sites that are almost never used, and creates a higher chance that either one will be abandoned due to lack of users. The /v/ wiki already has shit organized by system anyway.

>> No.2404032

Video game recommendations don't work because genres don't have broad appeal like in other forms of entertainment. You either like a certain genre or you don't. And even then there's too much subjectivity to the appeal of games for it to work.

It might be possible to list the MUST PLAYS across genres, but anything more than that is just not feasible in gaming.

>> No.2404052

>Video game recommendations don't work because genres don't have broad appeal like in other forms of entertainment.

HHahhaha. Yeah. Because everyone loves horror, love stories and musicals. It's just as broad.

>> No.2404053

... why do all of the descriptions cut off abruptly?

I pretty sure that would be Sonic Jam.

Have you ever played through the games on Sonic Jam? They have even more slowdown than the Genesis games. And the sound blows.

Easy to learn strategy game? I was thinking of something simple like Advance Wars wich i loved on GBA
I also loved Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds wich was a well done re-skin of Age of Empires II with loads of awesome missions

give me your best !!

>> No.2406024

Fire Emblem, Ealier Wars titles (Game Boy Wars, Famicom Wars etc), Early SRW titles. Shining Force, though that's more RPG. There's some translated Daisenryaku games but they can get pretty complicated.

>> No.2406103

thanks man
wich fire emblem game is considered the best?

>> No.2406108

No it's not. There is a sort of "canon" of film which is something that does not exist in video games.

My favorite game on the NES is Crystalis. Not a lot of people know about it, but it's a really good rpg, pretty much on par in quality with some of the good SNES rpg's.

Also I'd suggest Dragon Warrior 4 as far as RPG's go, and some other general NES games I'd suggest are Contra, 3D Worldrunner, Ghosts n Goblins, and Castlevania 1 & 3. A few of my favorites.

Fuck yes
that game is one of the most fun shmups I've ever played. I can actually 1cc it on hard mode (usa version). Easily the most worth it Sega CD game.

if you think the game is hard, check the Japanese version... it kills you if you hit any of the landscape, and there is an extra ceiling you have to dodge on the train level (well it is just one of the background layers with extra collision), among others. It is INSANELY difficult, more so than the English versions. Also has a small extra cutscene before the USA battleship, and the Ancestors Ark is actually named as Noah's Ark in it.
