I don't like this either /vr/ would be a much better place if GameCube was allowed . I feel like /vr/is dying by not allowing the other 6th gen consoles when they are obviously/vr/ material. Youn never see threads on any other board wanting to change board rules. Give the people what they want for Christ sakes. And for those who don't like it don't post on those threads it's not complicated.

>> No.2724867

also, keep in mind that I like vr as it is now, I don't want to change it (for the worse, at least). I'm just curious about this 6th generation thing that is allowing only one of the four main consoles of that generation

>> No.2724870

>>2724865
literally only a vocal minority of shitposters want 6th gen to be retro
literally no one, not even the most commercialized of review sites, consider 6th gen retro

>> No.2724887

You know what is the problem with you people?
You don't bother in making /v/ a better place you have to make every other board a videogame dicussion board.
>hurr allow 6th gen to /vr/ and it will be good
I have made a LOT of threads about old consoles, including the 6th generation of consoles and i always got nice discussion with minimal shitposting, if you people stopped being faggots you could stop coming up here and try to force shit.

The 6th generation will not be considered retro because the cutoff of retro is 1999 and i doubt it will be move regardless of you idiots keep spamming shit. Dreamcast is considered retro because it was released in 1999, making it retro [and let's be honest, the Dreamcast died out too quickly to even consider it a sixth generation console, thanks sega]

>>2724865
And you, shut the fuck up, /vr/ is not dying because of not allowing other 6th generation consoles, hell /vr/ is not even dying, its just like every other small-ish board [/tg/,/m/,/toy/, etc], SLOW.
>You never see threads on any other board wanting to change board rules
BECAUSE THE RULES THEY HAVE ARE PRETTY WELL STABILIZED AND EVERYONE IN ANY BOARD IS OKAY WITH THAT. If you aren't okay with the 1999 cutoff then you must go to /v/, make a Gamecube/PS2/XBox thread
>they are obviously /vr/ material
No they aren't, the 6th generation of games was the beginning of the modern era, ending whatever trace of old gaming with pixelated sprites and low poly models/raytraced models/voxels from the face of gaming, you don't see Nintendo doing games with sprites anymore or sony making crash bandicoot or microsoft doing flight simulators.

Now all of you should stop posting this shit because it doesn't belong here and it won't belong here.

Because the dreamcast isn't even a 6th generation console, it died out too fucking early because it was shit and sega was poor. Its more of a 5.5 Generation

I don't really think 6th gen is old enough to be retro (except maybe the GBA, considering it's library was very much like 4th gen games, but that's only a maybe), but you understand that trying to actually make /v/ good is a lost battle, right?

This "hurr why even bother" mindset is what killed a big chunk of 4chan culture, consider that.
And also, the GBA while it was a bit like an SNES, it doesn't hold a candle to the SNES/Generis libraries, specially considering that games that were ported from SNES->GBA were half assed and ruined by either fucked up color pallete or bad sound [see the entirely of FFVI Advace]

Castlevania, Metroid, Pokemon, Megaman Zero, and the occasional obscure gems like Ninja Five-O, Drilldozer, Astro Boy and others justify GBA discussion on /vr/. I'm not even counting good remakes like Kirby, the Pokemon games and Steel Empire. Boktai doesn't get any discussion in /v/ save for the occasional mention in a Metal Gear/Kojima general.

>> No.2724921

>>2724910
I'm just saying, trying to make /v/ good again is kind of like choosing between democrats or republicans, whatever you do it'll probably just get worse.

I'd say the GBA had some good titles on it's own, and I'm honestly fine with a port not being 1/1, color palette being off didn't really bother me, and I never played a game with really bad sound.
Metroid Fusion would make slight crackling noises on my DS because of mono/stereo conflicts, but you could flick that off when starting the game, Harmony Of Dissonance ha music which could be a bit hard on your ears if the volume was up, but the tunes were still great.

And what about the rest of the shovelware that takes 60% of the GBA's Library?
Also, most of the games you mentioned were not obscure [Astro Boy as obscure when its one of the most memorable Treasure games? You are a dickhead], in fact just mentioning Pokemon gives me the idea you don't know any shit about real obscure GBA games, for example; Sigma Star Saga which is the spritual successor of The Guardian Legend, i'm sure nobody has heard of this game until later when Wayfoward became more popular.

I don't care if the GBA is good or not, the cutoff was set and it won't belong here.

Do you yourself play/own/like any games from 6th gen? They are nothing like 2005 and up. Most are like 5gen with improved graphics. I really would like to know what you think allowing 6th gen would hurt its fucking geriatric. Modern gamers don't play it I've got a feeling that a lot of reluctant ppl on this board would look back and laugh that they were so reluctant

I don't know, what about 60% the shovelware that was released on the PS1?

The games I listed were from the top of my head. Astro Boy is obscure in comparison to most other Treasure titles. I mention Pokemon because it's a notable remake, not because it's an obscure title.

Retro is dictated by aesthetics and aesthetics speak that the GBA is much more retro than the Dreamcast.

As a matter of fact, i have a big bunch of games from the 6th generation and they are all good.

Still the 6th generation and still not retro.
>Most are like 5gen with improved graphics
Maybe the PS2 shovelware, i don't remember games looking as bad as a N64 game.
I really would like to know what you think allowing 6th gen would hurt its fucking geriatric.
Think of a very popular 6th gen videogame series like umm, Halo. Now imagine what will happen when a giant bunch of generals spawn about nostalgia for these things, do you really want the autistic kingdom hearts fanbase to come here?

Nice arguments.

Both systems had an equal number of shovelware in them, scrub. There is no such thing as good shovelware because good shovelware isn't called shovelware to begin with.

Technically yes and no, because it would depend upon the PC you were using. But I agree the cutoff date should be a little loose for PC, since there's not much of a difference between say, 97 and 01 PC titles. However I'm not a mod, so my opinion is invalid, and so is yours.

Most normalfags stick to reddit fagbook or /v/ I could see some intriguing threads spawned from 6th gen inclusion and I'm sure deep down you know it would be great

I personally think the cut off should be with hd graphics
