The thing is, games haven't progressed nearly as much in the past 15 years as they did in the 15 years before that. A 2002 PS2 game is still very similar to a 2017 PS4 game, except for the graphics improving. On the other hand, games from 1987 are almost a completely different thing.

>> No.3917131

Pier Solar belongs here way, way, WAY more than PS2. You're unbelievably wrong. In fact, repent. Buy a cat-o-nine-tails and get cracking. It's actually a 16-bit game that runs on the Sega Genesis, which, you know, is fucking /vr/.

I honestly like this concept because the board would seem fresh constantly with "new releases" appearing on their anniversary date. The down side is that some current content would become verboten but by 2002 even Playstation and Dreamcast releases were petering out. The retro police would have to stay on their toes about release dates and only homebrew and fan games would lose out. New translations would be okay still and they're probably the most valuable romhacks anyway.

>> No.3917145

Then we disagree completely. I think early GBA games belong here far, far more. Yes it runs on old hardware, but it's a new game.

Are you going to say the same for Cave Story? Not appropriate here for most of it's existence, but once it gets a port to an old system it is? I'm sorry, I think that's just stupid. This board should be for old games. Period.

This is kind of what I was thinking. For for example next month Tactics Ogre Knight of Lodis would turn 15 and it would be a nice reason to start up a discussion. Maybe get some people into it.

It keeps things both fresh and old at the same time, which is what I think this place should strive for.

Porting to old hardware is not easy. And the limitations of that hardware ensures that the Genesis port of Cave Story, or any such game, is way more colloquially "retro" than an ever expanding /vr/ audience of Halo babies and inevitably Duderaider fags. No thank you. Never ever.

Yeah, which I'm saying is a bad way to set it up because it lets in games that aren't necessarily retro or classic. That's not enough.

If someone ports Undertale to SNES that doesn't suddenly make it a classic retro game. It's still very clearly a product of it's era.

You could make Peggle run on a Genesis if you really tried. It wouldn't make it an old game or even an old style game. Going by platform is just plain silly.

That's not how it works. "Containment boards" provide a convenient place for interested parties to congregate and coordinate themselves, which means people of similar interests will be drawn to them and then spread their shit to the rest of the boards. Board splits make sense when another board has so much discussion of a particular topic that it makes sense to break them off so they aren't hurting other discussion, but if you're trying to contain some assholes, /trash/ works better.

The same could easily be said about the Dreamcast. Personally I think the history of gaming is far too complex to just lump everything into either retro or modern. It's been decades of continual small changes that build up over time.

To me anything 15 years old could be considered to be dated enough to work for a board dedicated to older games. I would be just as happy with 20 years but that would remove a lot of what's already allowed here and I think 15 is enough.

Mellee generals would be allowed, Halo would be considered retro, a lot of literal underage /v/ermin will be migrating here since the consoles THEY grew up with would be allowed.

If by "at times" you mean 0.1% of the time. You're not fooling anyone. I've stopped browsing /v/ a few years back and I pop in every now and then... It's the same bullshit still being posted just revised for newer games. /v/ is legit one of the worse boards on 4chan, and I will not stand for you defending it and thinking it's anything but a steamy dog shit. I was just like you, defending /v/ and considering it my homeboard, until I realized it was not worth it and decided to just stop browsing it.

>"what game is this"

I don't think it's worth anyone's time, not even yours, to browse or even care about /v/. If you're wondering what /v/'s talking about, it's probably the same thing as yesterday, and the day before that, and the day before that too.

What you're complaining about? Frivolous in comparison. /vr/ has a lot of good threads, some quirks, but nothing maddening to the point of insanity. You don't get autists screeching at the top of their lungs over a game made by a tranny being posted, you don't get floods of shitposting and dozens of threads in a DAY over an e-celeb's tweet, you don't see fags trying to make everyone mad in every god-damned thread, you don't see half of the catalog filled with off-topic drivel.

I don't agree at all. /v/ is one of the least 4chan board on 4chan. It is FAR below 4chan standards but newfags coming from ghetto websites such as 9gag or reddit wouldn't know this, since all they see are /pol/, /v/, /b/, and maybe /r9k/ too.

Every single fucking day those faggots make a rec. thread on /v/ saying "What are some games where..." and the end of that phrase could be anything from a sincere question to an excuse for another off-topic thread. Either one is complete fucking cancer for it encourages newfaggotry and just faggotry in general.

If one of those niggers tries to make a thread on /a/ that asks "what anime is good" they're gonna be told to fuck off to >>>/wsr/ and the thread will get deleted. Maybe they'll even get banned for a day if we're lucky. If they try to act like a /v/ermin on any board that isn't known for being cancerous their thread's going to get deleted and the OP will be told to fuck off back to /v/ where they belong, rightfully so seeing how /v/ acts compared to the rest of the boards.

The way I've been talking makes you think that it's just /v/'s audience that's complete crap but some of the mods and janitors that regulate the board share the blame as well, for actually sharing in their schizo mentality, deleting good threads and not bothering with threads that need their attention, and banning the wrong anons too. This insures that /v/ will remain a bad fucking board from now until who knows when, probably never.

I could go ON. /v/ was my first board on 4chan, but the way it is now I would strongly advise against continued usage seeing how a lot of their stupid will rub off on you.

>> No.3917367

I explained this before.

PSX was released in 1994
PS2 was released in 2000
PS3 was released in 2006

Roughly, each generation is a span of 6 years. Talking about current gen would defeat the purpose and 2 generations behind is still a little too recent to warrant being called retro. Three generations behind is where you start to get less talked about hardware\games which is the point of this board, to have a place to talk about the stuff people on other boards don't talk about.

So 2017-18 years(3 generations) is 1999. So next year I think it'd be reasonable to talk about PS2 and so on. Having a sliding scale for what is considered retro as time moves on makes sense, right?

It's not that /v/ doesn't have annoying trolls who fill the board with childish bitching, they're there for sure. But /vr/ has you and your ilk who I see as just as bad.

Also consistently around here, the posters who complain about younger board members are some of the most vitriolic and childish in their expressing their attitudes.

You decide not to wear a hat

Everyone sees you as an outsider and you decide to complain that everyone SHOULDN'T be wearing a hat.

On what grounds?

Because you see them as silly.

No one's going to stop wearing the hats they've been wearing for years if you just see them as silly.

If you think our hats are silly then you don't belong here.

Here's my thoughts.

/v/ used to be impossible to get any kind of reasonable discussion on due to its speed and low number of threads available.

This isn't the case anymore. The expanded number of threads allowed alleviated some problems, and /v/ has significantly slowed down in the recent year.

It's reached a point where I"ve gone to work and come home, or gone to bed and woke up and the thread was still alive.

Theres no need to further divide the board into /v2k/ or whatever you fags want. /v/ is fine for discussion on those things, and things like Crazy games General you can actively discuss things like the DMC series and God Hand.

Having any game 15 years or older is too complicated for the board. You can't expect people to look shit up before posting, and if they see any PS2 game they'll bring up any ps2 game.

I agree with you, but so many people here dont want to change. I would say the majority of /vr/ dont want things to change.

With the release of the switch and the ps4 slim/scorpion, we are getting closer to the newest gen. Should /vr/ wait until these new consoles drop/2020 for 6th gen to become acceptible or will /vr/'s cut off line stay at 1999? The ps2, xbox, gc and gba have a lot of games betwixt them, not to mention the pc games of the early 2000's. This extensive library merits some kind of notoriety, hell, the ps2 alone could have board dedicated to it.

I think that if /v2k becomes a thing before the next gen drop, it should be just 6th gen. Once the 9th gen drops, then 7th gen could be implicated aswell.

/v2k would be everything from 2000-2009 obviously

I don't get the argument that the board is about old games. Penny arcades had a place in time. Pinball had a place in time. The early years of video games had a place in time. There's a certain irrevocable spirit to it. If it's just a revolving door of thrift store throwaways and "remember X?" that's not the spirit of the board, that's not why anyone is here. It's not special because it's old, it's special because of the zeitgeist. PS2 may as well be the end of history. The fucking Walmartization of interactive entertainment. We argue over where the red line is--some say it goes way back, some a little further than where we're at. But there is a red line.

y'know, I can be annoyed at repetitive threads too. It's a huge reason as to why I hate /v/.

The beauty of /vr/, however, is that you could make a thread about literally any game and have it discussed to wonderful lengths. Sa Ga? Shining Force? Wizards and warriors? Monster Rancher? Neopoke-kun? Quiz Nanairo dreams? Because this is a slow board you could explore and talk about all of these games at a comfortable pace. I think that's really nice, so the real solution to that is to encourage more creativity with threads because there really is quite a few games that fit the board's retro criteria that quite a few people don't talk about.

The problem with /vr/ is that the general usebase is split between two general types.
The ones who talk about games they played when they were kids and rarely play anything other than those and the ones who are actually expanding their libraries and tackling their backlogs.
Problem is the former far outnumbers the latter type of /vr/ trooper, so while it's true /vr/ does indeed talk about lesser discussed series, like SaGa games or Monster Rancher as you said, that kind of discussion is drowned by six different Final Fantasy or Chrono Trigger threads which are basically the sympton of /vr/ Alzheimer since the posts are quite literally about the same fucking things all the time.
Hell, I've discovered plenty of cool games thanks to /vr/, especially thanks to general threads like the PC88 ones, but I can't hide that /vr/ is at large made of endlessly recurring threads about games everyone played already and there's really little to talk about, even the Doom threads at least spice it up a bit by posting new wads and keeping people up to date with the release scene, same with the SaGa ones or even the DQ ones, which are full of people who are more than willing to help newfriends out.

I like 90s PC games but there isn't much discussion here of stuff for PC before 2000, save for >DoomGeneral.

There are a lot good PC games in the 2000-2003 period that would not be discussed elsewhere for lack of traffic.

On the one hand it would be nice to see threads about them here, but on the other, there's this hard core of people who get furious when they see post-2000 games mentioned here, and it's amusing to see them spaz out. So I guess I'd prefer that there be ongoing controversy and accusations of rule breaches, rather than having a formal guideline.

Pretty much all that remains is JP only games, 99% /vr/ doesn't know JP and isn't motivated enough to learn it, so your best bet is that somebody puts out a translation, otherwise even if you make a thread about JP only games you'd be lucky to even get a reply unless they're games a lot of people know or are waiting for like Aconcagua or MOON.

Sure, I'd love to talk about all those little games like Lady Sword, Velldeselba Senki, Bardysh or even some kusoge like Rayblade, but realistically speaking nobody gives a shit because they don't know moon and many of them are too weeb for most people.

Perhaps it's hard to see now, but /vr/ has quite a bit of potential in it. Why, it could be capable of something beyond our wildest imaginations. We could be one of the more elite boards on 4chan by getting shit done and having fun every day doing it. What this thread is all about is trying to make the board more "accessible" to a wider audience, to bring in fools that only want to talk about 6th gen and nothing more.

/v2k would take a lot of that heat off by splitting the focus of discussion and dividing people's attention based on their interests. It would also make it less justifiable to talk about the same shit all the time instead of taking it to /vg

I know and that was part of my point when I said that the majority of /vr/ posters are simply driven by nostalgia, but you can't solve that, it's just who they are, they didn't change in 4 years, they won't change after other four years either and this will go on and on, some people are like that and you can't do shit about it.
>What this thread is all about is trying to make the board more "accessible" to a wider audience
I disagree, partly because even the /v/ infiltration is considerably modest and partly because adding another gen doesn't necessarily entail bringing cancer, which is a constant factor in everything anyway, see how the SHMUP threads devolved into shitflinging contests without having anything to do with 6th gen consoles, or the usual consolewars threads which have appeared since a few years.
>Does that sound appealing, that this niche will disappear forever by being buried under newer creations?
I honestly don't believe it will, if you yourself believe in the potential of the board you should know better than me.
People like you and I will keep digging through oldass archives and post stuff either way because we have a genuine interest in doing so and sharing stuff with others, which is what made me appreciate this board back when it was younger, adding another gen doesn't necessarily change that, just like the Dreamcast didn't, in fact I discovered many cool Dreamcast games thanks to /vr/ sparking my interest for the platform, and I still learned a lot about other old consoles like the C64, expanded my Amiga library and so on, looking back it was a net gain for me, and I am certain this won't change as long as people like us are in this board.

I still mantain that by 2020 we should admit the 6th gen, not doing so means being willingly blind to the passing of time, as I see it that would be a big mistake in more ways than one.

I think the question is: should /vr/ change its rules to allow games from newer gens, but are still "old"?

Who is the arbiter of what retro videogames are? It reminds me of the different eras of art, and how modern art isnt modern, but a title to describe an era. Where as contemporary art is what is actually art of our time. Will contemporary art become a title? Then what will we use to describe the next generations art? Will it be called neoteric art? Its all quite confusing.

Should /vr/ be a title to describe an era in video games or should retro be encompassing of video games that are "15 years or older"? Its quite a predicament that needs to be solved. I personally think retro should be encompassing, as we already have generations to distinguish time frames.

a date (point in time) is only a metadata for easy and unambiguous pinpointing the limit and stating a rule, even if it's slightly inaccurate to the actual principle

otherwise it's the principle of older design principles (not used anymore) against new ones (still used today). but you can't make a good rule out of something you have to analyze.

rules should be simple. "up to 5-th gen / 1999 release date for pc" is a simple and straight-forward rule. even if a few games that would still apply to the 'old' principle don't cut the date condition

OK, the 6th gen has been added. Now there are posters whining about the Xbox 360, Playstation Portable, and Nintendo DS not being allowed on /vr/ because they came out before the 6th gen ended. We allow those platforms. Now people whine about the PS3 and Wii not being allowed because they came out during the lifetimes of the X360, PSP, and DS. We allow those. Now people whine about the 3DS not being allowed because it came out during the lifetimes of the PS3, PSP, X360, Wii, and DS.

If we keep allowing these newer and newer systems, the line between /v/ and /vr/ becomes increasingly nebulous. Why should /vr/ exist at all if the line keeps moving? You may call my argument a slippery slope (and it is), but it's exactly what fucking happened before the Dreamcast was allowed on /vr/.

The only thing truly wrong with /vr/ is the constant shitposting about the board itself.

It seems you nancy boys won't quiet down until you get your way and the definition of retro as it pertains to /vr/ is changed. Except for the fact you faggots can't even agree on what the definition should be

>15 years
It's been mentioned, but this is a really shitty metric. It would mean you could discuss Ratchet and Clank, but you better not fucking talk about Going Commando, Up your arsenal or Deadlocked until 2018. 2019, and 2020. It is completely unreasonable for this userbase to limit its discussion of a series simply because of an arbitrary 15 year rule.

Having to do background checking of whether or not a game is retro or not is going to just cause a bunch of people to post shit regardless.

People will see FFX be discussed, and assume that X-2, 11, and 12 are fair game when they are arguably not based on that chosen metric.

>Let GBA in, but not PS2/Xbox/GCN
Another retarded solution. since the PS2 is older than the GBA and no matter what metric you use, is arguably more retro.

If your argument that 2D is retro than you're just splitting hairs, and then you can make a strong case that anything 3D shouldn't be allowed here.

My proposed solutions:
>Discuss retro games on /vr/, and discuss anything not retro on /v/ or /vg/ as it was setup
>If you want to have sustained discussions on non-retro defined games and refuse to go on /v/, there are plenty of other forums and boards to do that in.

>Hiro doesn't want to make new boards
If you've paid an iota of attention to 4chan it's pretty fucking clear Hiro is a money grubbing jew who is only interested in cash. Did you not notice how fucking unusable the site is on mobile once he took over? More boards = more site maintenance with moderators and janitors and he doesn't want to deal with that.

I think it gives us a better chance of having them. Not everyone new who comes will be young and not every young new person who comes will only be interested in PS2.

The very idea of expanding things to attract new posters here is that even if they're mostly interested in PS2 or whatever, they will then see other threads and some will be interested.

Sure if /v2k happened those people won't be here to push the Amstrad threads off the board as quickly, but they also won't be here to get potentially interested by them.

Who knows? But the chances are zero if we don't say we think they need changing.

Well "retro" doesn't actually apply to the vast majority of games that we can talk about here already, that's part of the problem. Some people take it to mean "old games" and others take it to mean "classic era games" and then they have their own ideas of what "classic era" means. Neither of which is "retro" but that's the word we got stuck with.

Personally I think this place should be for talking about old games. Obviously there was a time when all these games were new, but over time they get old. The same way if this "retro" board was formed in 2000 it almost certainly wouldn't have included N64 or PS1 and definitely not Dreamcast. But that was a some time ago now and those systems are old now.

Retro has a specific meaning, but it's not the way it's used here. It doesn't mean old and it doesn't mean classic.

Shovel Knight is a retro game. Mega Man 2 is an old or classic game. That's not opinion or debate, that's simply what the word means.

How about allowing a 6th gen general thread here?

So all discussion of those games and consoles is banned in all topics other than the general, and there can only be one general at a time. That way, all us 6th gem fags can argue about ps2, gcn, xbox, gba and etc in peace. Like a containment thread, if you will.
And make it a bannable offence for anti 6th gen assholes to post their bs in the general.
So, if some ass pipe starts spouting "not retro, never will be" then he gets a 1 week ban or something.

I think that's the best solution for everyone, overall.
