They had pretty high standards but there are plenty of deeply flawed games that saw publication even during that peak period. AM2 on the other hand...

All of them you fucking retard. "Ageing badly" is a meme of autistic newfags, who can't into generation they didn't have as kids. I just played Doom for the first time, the oldfag way and it was fucking great. This is after playing HL, HL2, Bioshock and even Far Cry 2.

AM2 on arcades were the beast in the early 90s.

I think Nintendo was up to standards to AM2 during their N64 era.
Stuff like Wave Race 64, 1080 and F-Zero X are still 10/10 games.

>> No.3291313

I dunno, when you put them up against games like Waverunner, Top Skater and especially Water Ski they look and feel pretty inferior especially if you play on real arcade hardware. F-Zero X kind of plays the franchise card but it does stand alone.

>> No.3291327

>AM2 on arcades were the beast in the early 90s.
Nah look at After Burner Climax, Outrun 2 or VF4 those games are better than their predecessors in every possible way. AM2 never lost it's touch when it came to arcades. They literally pumped out instant classics all the time.

I honestly think Wave Race 64 is better than Waverunner and Water Ski. The Sega games were still great and playing on the actual arcade machines, actually riding a jetski, was an experience that a home console couldn't bring, that's a given. But controls-wise, I think Wave Race had more to it. Graphics and sound is kind of hard to argue which had better. Sega's games had sharp graphics with better textures, however, Sega hadn't figured out or couldn't make water look as good as on WR64, so the water effect (a big deal in these kind of games) goes to WR64.

Anyway, this is just my opinion, you may prefer Waverunner and that's fine, also great game. But my point is, EAD during N64 times was at least on par with AM2.
I don't know why they didn't keep working on these franchises themselves. I think the F-Zero X director went on to work on Mario Kart, at least F-Zero GX was delegated to Sega. Wave Race didn't run such luck with Blue Storm, they handed the WR franchise to some western dev and it didn't top or even match WR64.

Sure, I love the games you mentioned too, but I was talking about when arcade games were alive and AM2 made the absolute most advanced and impressive ones. Virtua Fighter, Virtua Racing, those were revolutionary when they came out, the best experience you could get for a couple quarters at any arcade.

The SGI chip in the N64 does make water look a bit different than the Model 2's. Objectively neither one is anything approaching realistic but there's no shame in being accustomed to the N64's aesthetic since obviously exponentially more hours have been clocked on N64s than on arcade hardware. We might even be able to agree on a lot of points were Wave Race beats Waverunner and I respect your opinion too much to even bait you by bringing Jet Moto into the debate.

However, Sega took everything they learned from that particular battle, blended in Top Skater's tech and created what's probably the ultimate Xtreme 90s game with the retardedly titled Water Ski.

There's no reason Model 2 couldn't have Wave Race 64 style water effects. All you need to do it (and by need I mean, efficiently) is a z-buffer, which the Model 2 has hardware support for.

F Zero X is simply the finest racing experience that has ever been. I'm so glad they weren't tempted to follow Wipeout's lead and put projectile weapons in. That would have broken it (like it broke Wipeout if you ask me). Besides, if you like cheap, dirty racing games not based on racing skill, there's Mario Kart.

Doesn't mean that it makes old games unplayable, they are just as playable and often almost as fresh compared to new ones as new ones are compared to them.

What an embarrassing opinion.

Dark Seed has aged like shit, people raved at the pretty graphics and (official) H.R Giger art assets, but as an actual point and click adventure game, it really isn't that good (the sequel fixes a lot of things).
I still see people talk about it as if it's a masterpiece, but it's remarkably obtuse for even a point and click adventure, it's the kind where there is little real logic and you're kind of just supposed to replay it over and over until you stumble upon the right thing to do, progress is done less through logic and more often through attrition, you'll never really learn anywhere that you can leave three items under that one pillow and they'll somehow be in the Dark World (nor is it ever learned which need to put there, you'll kind of have to just replay the game until you hope you do), the game punishes you for taking the policeman's gun the first day, so it's easy to assume that it's just one of those traps.

I kind of want to say a lot of the King's Quest series, but given that those kinds of adventure games were completely new ground and nobody really knew what made a game like that good, I'm willing to cut them SOME slack (Leisure Suit Larry aged somewhat better and I'll give the early games points for making it funny and interesting enough that the shortcomings are kind of forgiveable).

I wouldn't say that Warcraft 2 has aged BADLY, but it definitely has aged, the two factions are largely symmetrical, except for select units, everything is a reskin (Starcraft was a monumental step up here), but I'll say that a lot of it is forgiveable as it's still pretty fun to play and it's so much better than the original game.

Marathon gets a lot of praise, but I honestly think it's very mediocre, I think it's an artifact of the fact that it was Mac exclusive. The level design is I think the worst part.

>> No.3299934

Doom and Duke 3D I feel are games which have aged phenomenally well, they kind of get their gameplay and level design fundamentally right.
