Tbh everything on the NES. It's too archaic to be playable. If people would take there nostalgia goggles off for a while they'd realize the master system is 1000% more advanced and playable. NES had baby games like Mario and Kirby. Master system had Phantasy Star, a game for adults. There's no math there.

Original Legend of Zelda, but that might be because I never gave Zelda II a chance.

The game is completely unplayable without a guide. The only people who were able to ever play it and put it on a pedestal today are Nintendo Power fags. It was pre-internet era so you had to go out and buy a subscription or a guide to get through that shit and the payoff isn't even worth it.

Whenever someone tells me they were able to get through it without any help at all, that's how I know they're full of shit. Or they've got some weapons grade autism.

I'm not a Zelda/Nintendo hater. I think Link's Awakening is an excellent game and my favorite Zelda. But the original is so fucking unplayable it's amazing people give it so much praise. Go play it yourself without a guide if you don't believe me.

Or maybe Hunter (pic related) on the Amiga. Technology just wasn't advanced enough for what it was trying for so it was a debacle overall.

I've read that it received good reviews at the time (and because it was one of the first games to take 3d seriously it was jerked off to) but I still think it was pretty bad. I played it near release and I still don't get the love it got.

I played it again recently and it was worse than I remembered. just my imo imho imo

In Zelda 1 defence you do get a bow in the first dungeon which obliterates a lot of the early enemies i 1 shot, making exploration less shitty.

Zelda games in general usually have at least one "that part" where you have no clue how to progress and just scour the landscape for clues. Like Jabu Jabu in OoT or that rock that you have to transport in order to unfreeze Zoras domain in TP. Or using the Spell to get thunder in Zelda 2, or finding the flute in Alttp. It's kind of part of Zelda/nintendo design.

You see, back in the day we didn't feel the need to beat every single game a week after we started it. It took me forever to get through Zelda and I did it without a guide.

I haven't played a lot of bad games thankfully, but these 2 rub me the wrong way.

Lufia has atrocious combat mechanics, is grindy as fuck (gotta grind to hedge your bets vs. bosses) to kill shit and get equipment. It's long and it's all chasing McGuffins until the end when you finally get Dual blade and go kill the Sinistrals who you never see until the very fucking end.

Undeserved hate. A lot of its criticism is yet another case of retro game revisionist history aimed more at its "funny" title and association with Shaq.

I'm not claiming Shaq-Fu was a great game, but it was considered an average-to-above average fighter for the time.

Eh, some parts of it are really bad, but it does get more hate than what it actually deserves, it's nowhere near as bad as Dragon's Lair for the NES, to name something fucking horrible.

How do you mean revisionist history?
Also, personally, I like Shaq, yes, he's not a fantastic actor, but he's just such a loveable fucking guy, I can't resist his smile.

>I'm not claiming Shaq-Fu was a great game, but it was considered an average-to-above average fighter for the time.
It felt very average to me, but then, I'm not a big fighting game guy.

The worst part is that there's always that one guy around here who will come to Bubsy's defense as if it's actually good, when Bubsy never reached beyond mediocrity at his best.

>> No.3268671

I'll fite you on Lufia, I actually liked the combat mechanics (mainly, that is has a dynamic turn system based on your speed and equipment weight. It IS grindy, and the part looking for alumina is atrocious (while also being the less linear part of the game, so I guess it's give and take), but I wouldn't call ALL of the story chasing McGuffins, there's a lot of seeking out people and places too. And the party banter is actually pretty good for a game of its time. Also, you see Gades very early, and Amon 2/3 of the game (unless you save that alumina piece for last), and Daos well before the final battle. Plus, you get introduced to them right at the beginning. There are lots of villains/final bosses that don't appear often in their story (think, for example, Breath of Fire I and II, Illusion of Gaia, Secret of Mana, just to name a few games from the same age). I'd say it's pretty common in videogames in general, and the Sinistrals are among the most present ones.

I won't say it's a flawless game, dungeons are kind of a drag and the characters move slowly, and you're forced to play endgame with one less character until the final battle, but I love the story and characters to bits and I played the whole game like 4 times.

I mean the 2nd quest sure, but in the first one it isn't THAT hard to find stuff. You DO go around burning random bushes hoping to find something, and that one is a very obvious one to burn. I got the game when I was 7 years old, so my memory is foggy at best (although, I'm not american, so I didn't have Nintendo Power for sure), my main problem with the game was the point at stage 7 where a Goriya blocks your way and the screen reads "Grumble Grumble", and you're supposed to give him the bait to pass. I just couldn't figure out what to do. I'm not sure the bait even does anything else in the game.

Yeah but it's the first time in the game where you have to use an item in a room with a character, and as a non-native speaker small child I struggled to understand what grumble stood for.

Having played 1-2.3 as a kid in release order, I never understood all the praise for MM2. I mean sure, it's not a bad game by any means, but it's also literally nothing special. Going from 1 to 2, I was like "oh cool, more stages!" but the game also felt easy as hell. O guess it doesn't help, I guess, that at some point I knew the first game so well I started doing robot masters in reverse order for added challenge, my ideal order was fire-bomb-guts-cut-elec-ice, and I went ice-elec-cut-guts-bomb-fire instead. And I did the yellow demon the legit way since it was the only way I knew.
Megaman 2 was cool, and the weapons are fun to use, and it's a very good game, but that's about it. Also it doesn't have the platforming sections from hell the first game has. Gutsman's stage in 1 is insane if you don't know what you're doing. I remember being a little disappointed in 2, actually, because I had finished it the day after I got it, and fun as it was, I felt like the balance of low difficulty and low content was a bit of a ripoff. Afterwards I replayed it to hell, of course.

Personally my favorite is 3, because the slide was nice to have as it added a lot of mobility and possible tactics, the weapons are good with nothing as OP as the metal blade in 2, the initial stages are just the right difficulty, and the revisit stages with the clone bosses from MM2 were a really nice concept, with using the new weapons on old bosses and trying to figure out who is weak to what. Actually, was there ever another MM game with this kind of thing?

The battles feel way more dynamic and exciting thanks to the superior graphics and animations, the story is fun and interesting, the time travel shit is awesome albeit a bit underutilized in terms of gameplay, there's a bunch of alternate endings (even if many of them are just slideshows), music's great, and best of all it's so much easier than FFVI that you almost never need to grind. Overall it definitely feels like a step or two ahead of FFVI in terms of gameplay.

Are you contesting that I didn't think that 8 stages were more cool than 6 stages, or that the game didn't feel easy as hell? Because while I was genuinely happy with having more stages, I actually finished it the day after I got it and was kinda disappointed at how easy everything felt, there was no hard boss like Elecman or Iceman or the Yellow Devil. Or do you honestly think that "Airman is too strong" is more than a meme from a song? Airman is easy to defeat even with just the buster, dodging is tornadoes is nothing compared to dodging ice beams that hit you for 1/3 of your life on slipperly terrain.

The worst one in recent memory is Mortal Kombat 3 for the Game Gear. I tried the ROM because I was curious about why the cartridge is so rare and expensive. The real reason it never came out in the US is because it's absolutely terrible. Horrible controls, no music, awful sound, ugly graphics and really poor animation.

What's perplexing is that the Game Gear actually got an excellent port of Mortal Kombat 2 that plays well and has very impressive visuals and sound for an 8-bit game. Mortal Kombat 3 feels like one of those Chinese bootleg rom hacks. I'm pretty sure if it came to the US people who bought it would have returned it to the store.

Controversial opinion: Metroid, or to be more precise Super Metroid. Could be the fact that I got to play it when I was much older, since I never really had a console as a kid, but despite that, I never really appreciated the game, or the way it is played. I do dig the music and the atmosphere, though.

Nobody gives a shit edition: Alundra 2. Fuck you, game that has nothing to do in any shape or form with the original. Azure Dreams - fuck you even harder, game that takes you to level 1 each time you leave the dungeon, Monster Seed - what was even the point of this shit?

>> No.3276135

You go down to level 1 after leaving the dungeon, but its not like you become a fresh character. You keep things other than levels, and that's what its balanced around. I mean not liking the game's fair, just like not liking any other game, but I don't think the game's unbalanced or anything, just a different style of RPG.

I really don't get you. The game does have a map overhead and if you look at it enough it's easy to get a general idea of where you are on the world map, which is only a few dozen tiles huge. There are some overworld puzzles with barely sufficient hints given out, but they're easier than some PC adventure game.

The only thing I hate about Zelda 1 is how there are a jillion enemies on screen, it's really easy to get killed, and yet you don't get to respawn back at the dungeon entrance with a decent amount of hearts. Why should we have to tediously gather hearts just to make another attempt to go through a dungeon room swarming with wizzrobes? It's fuckin' bullshit.

Oh, let's all get the warp whistle and warp to "big world"! Too bad big world isn't fucking fun, like the rest of this game. The entire thing is designed to anger and frustrate you. Oh, you get Kuribo's shoe on one fucking level! Wow, pardon me while I make the universal motion for a handjob. Kuribo's shoe fucking sucked. What did it do, exactly?

There are some interesting power-ups in the game, such as Tanookie Mario, Hammer Mario, and Frog Mario. But guess what?

To be honest while I liked the big world, I did really dislike that despite not being even that or OP, you only get so little frog suits and hammers. Personally I liked tackling the final boss with Hammer mario, but doing so required a huge amount of preparation, especially since you can't replay levels in SMB3. That said the game was great.

My first computer was a C64, which I got in '89 (well past it's prime) and almost all of the games were complete bullshit. The one game that stands out to me from that time was The Attack of the Phantom Karate Devils.

An enemy that was just some floating hands and eyes came off to me as something of the absolute laziest I had ever seen.

I wouldn't say the worst by any means since it was my first experience with the genre it created and I can appreciate that fact but the first metroid on nes was a fucking chore to play at times with serious bullshit game design and a map that's a real maze (didn't try to draw a map or use a guide for this one).
