>trial and error difficulty as a design flaw from the era
It literally is a fucking design flaw? How in a love of fuck can you defend trial and error in a system that pernamently punishes you for failure (i.e. a game with limited lives or limited continues).
Sure, if that's not the case, then trial and error is acceptable, especially with short iteration times, or if it's a way to solve a puzzle you don't get as a last resort thing, but often trial and error is just padding to make game artificially longer.

Trial and error usually wasn't fun or engaging back then, and isn't fun still.

It's much more hipster to act as if every decision ever made by a dev is automatically masterful and GOAT just because game was made before 1999. Games had flaws back then! And some of them sucked! Shocking, I know.

>> No.3648509

Confirmed hipster that's into retro without even understanding it and probably 6th gen advocate. Also yes trial and error makes the game longer, that's the point. You could only afford a few titles back then and they had to last so they designed stuff for you to play again and again until you musclememorized everything. Didn't make the games any less fun.

>> No.3648605

“Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.

It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.

Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own). One may be quick to coin such interests and garb as "black-rimmed glasses, flannel, and indie music," however said mainstream-avoiding "hipsters" will logically turn down abiding to such a popular consensus, voiding the interpretation null.

You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.

The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings.

Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.

tl;dr: if you believe hipsters exist, you are a plebeian.

I was referring to the generic LCD cabinet as an accompaniment to a random "vintage" items ensemble, which includes strangely mismatched items like a rotary phone, VHS tapes, a wooden chessboard, and a modern clock with ironically clashing fonts.

Yes, Mr. Pasta, because no already accepted subculture group has ever presented itself as "nonconformist" despite actually just conforming to several of the trends set by their own group, nor has there ever been a group where all members are carbon copies of each other.

For instance, actual 'hipsters' (I know because I am literally surrounded by them all the time) don't have gauges like OP implies, those people are fucking ex-emo kids, it's all the same garbage. NO ONE IS UNIQUE EVERYONE ON /VR/ IS A HIPSTER, FUCK.

Inclined to believe this. I don't think that most under 18 don't give a shit about retro.

Games are amazing these days. And there's the entire online culture of multiplayer now. Retro is a novelty at best. The retro 'aesthetic' is still very prominent in the indie scene though.

>> No.3650470

You should, I've been in and around the 'hipster scene' everyone seems to be referring to for a decade now, being a musician in a North East US city will do it. I've seen it all, it's all stupid and every single 'sub-culture' is exactly the same so defining any of it is a waste of time. I play modern games and retro games equally, myself.

Since when are beards considered "hipster"? Shaving is more work than not shaving, so I would think that a clean shaven face would be considered more "hipster"y since its higher effort. Or maybe a well groomed or shaped beard. But then I see pics of guys with regular ass normal beards and they are "hipster"? Maybe it's because I'm from the country but everyone has a beard like that, and none of them are really what I'd call a hipster.

Neither of those are the case anymore, this was hip in like the mid to late 2000's, its like 8 years out of date at this point.

Today look for slim fits instead of skinny jeans, more clean lines, softer colors, and more subtle patterns in business casual wear, although streetwear and casualwear can be more garish.

Expect appreciation of niche and high-end products, subcultures, experiences. While this can manifest in the form of elitist attitudes surrounding food for example

(local coffee places and french presses, cold and nitro brews for coffee. Starbucks is mainstream and generally considered poor quality. Even IPA's are on their way out due to oversaturation)

You could even consider this board's obsession with period authenticity and CRTs fairly hip in and of itself.

This exactly.

It's just DQ, but an extremely simplified version, along with a bunch of tedious, quirky shit thrown in with it. It has a whole bunch of terrible mechanics (extremely limited inventory space, having pictures taken every two seconds, PP-stealing, obnoxious status ailments, rolling HP values, having your dad ring you up continuously, areas where you're forced to take damage, silly teleports, 1/128 chance items, having to withdraw cash from an ATM, enemies which are guaranteed to deal damage upon death) which make it "quirky";, stylised but in actuality extremely impractical. It's no surprise why hipsters love it so much.

It's charming as a game, sure, but that's all it has going for it. On a fundamental level it's actually pretty awful, but the shallowness is why so many hipsters like it; they're very shallow people.

Eboshidori is a fucking amazing design and makes the other bosses look like generic trash. Like holy fuck this thing is SO COOL.

It's kinda sad cuz I think people's typical reasons for shitting on Ikaruga are stupid but it also feels a bit creatively bankrupt compared to other super wacky Treasure games

>> No.3659906

The problem with Ikaruga is that 90% of the work was done by Iuchi himself. Whereas Silvergun, a much better shmup, had boss designs by the mighty NAMI, of Alien Soldier and Mischief Makers fame. Ikaruga might have taken one step forward (that is, improved the scoring system over RSG), but it took several steps back.

I think the "hipster" thing is overused and progressively losing meaning, but I've met a good amount of people who fit the "hipster gamer" stereotype. Mostly I think the type is attracted to two main things: "obscure" games and "quirky" games.

"Obscure" games are relative to other games, the hipster type usually doesn't give a shit about games that are "actually" obscure. Take a popular series/company and the hipster type will usually praise the black sheep (Majora's Mask is a classic example) and be unusually uninterested in the most popular games. This makes them seem "different" but also pass off as knowledgeable.

"Quirky" games are pretty self-explanatory. Earthbound is the embodiment of this fetish, but I'd include nearly any "strange" Japanese game (Katamari, Parodius, LSD Dream Emulator, etc.). Besides the obvious ironic and "weird" aspect, there's also the "deeper" idea that the very idea of video games are weird and shouldn't be taken too serious.

I don't really see anything wrong with liking or agreeing with any of that. But it does bug me when I meet someone who namedrops those kinds of games but doesn't really know or give a shit about anything else. I'm probably just the ultimate hipster.

Do hipsters just find what games are the most expensive and latch onto them?

I debated including that title for that reason but it does illustrate something about hipsters that doesn't seem to be readily understood.

Most hipsters that I have known don't search out obscure media because of obscurity alone, they search it out because they've exhausted, or are bored with, much of the mainstream content within which whatever medium that their interests lie.

I believe that at the beginnings of these types of searches there usually can be a type of snobbery, or elitism, that associates itself with this narrowing of interest. However, a net positive of this sifting and sorting is that a refinement of appreciation of the given medium as a whole occurs.

What I see inevitably happen with the most die hard hipsters is that they end up coming out the other side again; they come to view everything in the medium as a flat landscape and are able to appreciate both the popular and the obscure with fresh eyes, while simultaneously being able to eschew those labels.

At this final point in the evolution of the true hipster all is one and any specific artifact of a medium may be appreciated based solely on the participants internal framework and not on any given externalities put forth by society or the culture at large. All artifacts are able to be examined in a vacuum, as it were, popular or not.

I mostly consider hipsters to be posers and I don't think posers regard themselves as such. They think they're cool by doing what they do. And it is mostly just to be different and feel special by going against what is considered mainstream.
What really makes hipsters what they are though is the urge to flaunt their choices and behavior to give themselves an aura of superiority. That's the real problem.

It does seem like many here see hipsters as the boogeyman, though. Which is weird because I don't even think hipsters and nerds even share the same "habitat".
