In my opinion, these three consoles had the best game library out of all consoles considered retro on this board. They represent the best of 2D gaming. Does vr agree? And if not, what would you chose?

>> No.3596473

Best of 2D gaming should be PC88, PC98 and Windows 9x.

>> No.3596479

I don't care for the genesis. What am I gonna play on it, for real? Gunstar Heroes? lol.

Don't even try to say Sonic. Those games suck. Sonic is a boring game that tricks kids into playing a terrible obstacle course.

Every time I see someone talking about a Genesis, it's to say shit like Mortal Kombat and Aladdin are better on it. Who cares? If you aren't playing Mortal Kombat on arcade hardware, you're a moron.

>> No.3596557

You could play splatterhouse or punisher or all those phantasy stars or u can play some shining or shinobi or some streets of rage or mega bomberman or some madden or mutant league or rocket knight or ghosts n goblins or castlevania bloodlines but those are all some adult games. Sorry if they aren't as extreme as Mario.

>> No.3596559

Every console has had a bunch of great games on it. Trying to pick which one or two or three are the "best" is pointless.

>> No.3596562

I think Sonic is legit pretty terrible, but the Genesis is one of my favorite systems and has a boatload of games I like. What kinds of games do you like? I may be able to recommend some.

>> No.3596571


I thought sonic was shit until I understood it a bit better. You are not meant to just go fast through all the stages right off the bat. Its meant to be played like Mario, where you carefully platform your way through the first time, and just like Mario, you beat it faster and faster with every subsequent playthrough. Sonic is set up so that later playthroughs allow you to just blaze through it, where as in Mario it always remains relatively slow. That bring said, they shit wayyyy too many sanic games out in too short a time which made it feel repetitive and uninspired.

It's just a dumb question. I answered it anyway, but you can see why it doesn't work.

What am I gonna say? "Arcade games!" That doesn't accurately convey anything. I like Pac-Man, will I like Tempest? Doesn't work.

Honestly, the question "What kind of games do you like?" seems more aimed at people who are Jewed out and only play modern trite. Bro I like Call of Duty. Oh then you're gonna love Battlefield! Righteous...

I just think it's odd for people not to be able to describe what they like and don't. Granted you did give a bit of a description, but "skilled games you can still wiggle and mash to" is ill defined.

I tend to like games that have a good dose of strategic thinking to them and lots of options for the player. One of the most important questions about a game to me is how often do I get to make an interesting decision. So two of my favorite genres are fighters and roguelikes because they both offer a lot of decision making, have very high replay value but are otherwise very different types of games.

Anyways, I really don't know what I would recommend to you and doesn't sound like you're looking for them in the first place. So it's all good.

I find it hard to imagine anyone not liking Tempest, but that's just me.

That's like half the library of the Genesis. The thing was built as basically an at-home arcade system.

This. Yanks only got about a quarter of the MS library.

>> No.3597561

Agreed. I even find the Genesis "clone" games like Crusader of Centy to be more enjoyable than stuff like ALTTP.

Personally the trinity should be NES, Genesis and PS1. In my opinion the best console of each gen, also offering the greatest variety of titles as well. Everyone will be able to find something they like on them.

>Replace NES
Nah, not gonna happen.

They're both good.

Opinion discarded. Go play your Amiga games.

Why do yanks hate being called yanks? Is it because they don't understand banter.

I agree with you, OP and 100%.

I prefer the NES over Master System. That console some great games like Phantasy Star, Sonic, Ninja Gaiden 'n all but the game library isn't very exciting imo. I had one but sold it some years later.

About Genesis and SNES...they are opposite sides of the same coin. If you like western developers and games, get a Genesis. If you prefer japanese developers and games, get a SNES. Personally, I like both so I always have fun with them and their hiddem gems. The slowdown/farts/shitty graphics/shitty games/shitty version meme never affected me.

>> No.3597630

>> No.3597646


I agree with you for the most part.

That said, I prefer some certain niche Japanese devs to almost any western one, and for me, the Genesis (very slightly) beats out the other two. Let's also not forget that they are both, essentially, Japanese consoles.

This is, of course, only because of very specific preferences, and not at all objective.

OP is correct of course.

Then why don't you like the Genesis, exactly? You just described like 90% of the library.

For me it's:

The only Genesis game I ever played and liked was Sonic 2 (just the 2-player race mode). Genesis could've really used some Metroidvanias.

As for N64, it's currently the star of 4-player retro night because of Goldeneye, Mario Kart and Smash Bros.

Is that your opinion because you've only played games for those or is it actually an informed opinion? Sounds to me like you're just listing the most popular neo /v/ meme consoles. The fact that you pick the NES over the FC is pretty much proof of that. The fact that you limit yourself to three is also a good indicator. Why not just get everything that's good? Some consoles only have a few games worth playing but they're exclusives or the best version.
