Has nothing to do with graphics. A lot of the game design is just flat out dated and the control schemes especially are almost all bad

>> No.3993262

In the case of Goldeneye, I think the controls still work great, provided you're using a real N64 controller.
The stick precision is pretty good, the game was developed with it in mind. Playing it with mouse, or with any other controller just wouldn't be the same.

>> No.3993268

Ironically enough for that poster, the most salient examples of garbage touted as "good games" due to nostalgia goggles happen to be the ones that capitalized on recent advancements in graphics instead of gameplay for commercial success.

>> No.3993280

It seems like the meaning of the word nostalgia has changed. It used to mean a unique, fleeting feeling you get when being unexpectedly reminded of something you hadn't thought about in a long time, but the current usage seems to mean anything you have positive feelings attached to if those feelings were attached a long time ago.

>> No.3993282

Still very good games.

These were mediocre even for the time.

>> No.3993285

Why not? I recently bought the Turok 2 remaster when it came out because I had played it back then on the N64.

Goldeneye WAS a good game, so much so Rare told Nintendo and MGM to fuck off and delayed it 2 years until after the movie's release date just to get it right.

It was the premiere multiplayer game of the 90s only behind maybe Street Fighter 2, back when people still played with their true friends in a living room instead of competing against foul-mouthed anon 12 year-olds nostril breathing and playing rap music into their mic like today's FPS experience.

It was not nostalgia, it was a better world than has ever been seen. A kingdom of conscience. A kingdom of heaven.

How is one long sentence a paragraph? Why do you need to divide up one paragraph into multiple sentences?

no, it doesn't improve readability. Maybe you should instead make one cohesive paragraph instead of dividing it up into sentences?

>> No.3993794

how would dividing paragraphs into sentences suddenly make what a anon is typing more understandable. unless you're trying to make the content more digestible to read, but at that point you might as well give the reader a bib too.
back on topic, i think some games are still liked because of nostalgia but aren't that great. those football titles from the 90s, whatever childhood game you grew up with. OP makes a good point but bringing up that argument with an example of goldeneye makes his argument weak. because golden is a solid game, there are many other

I meant it as people came up calling on others "reddit spacing" I never saw anyone gave a shit about tis before, it's like insult of the month

My reason for liking Goldeneye is that while the lightgun idea got scrapped during development the level design and enemy placement/behavior is still very reminiscent of one giving the game an incredibly unique feel.

>> No.3994664

Nah, "great at the time" means the gamers/the market was changed. It means that it's possible to enjoy the game with the right mindset. For example, you can still enjoy, idk, King's Quest if you put yourself into a mindset of the game being basically a complex interconnected puzzlebox where you're supposed to constantly save and challenge is to find the seams - then it actually is fun, it just needs to be approached differently than fucking, idk, Walking Dead.

Nostalgia means the game has no redeeming quality outside of it.

Or you could just shrug your shoulders and enjoy it without articulating any particular reason, since it doesn't matter anyways as opinion on the matter is entirely subjective.
Besides, being someone who explains or demands an explanation as to why they enjoy anything just makes them sound like a snobby wine critic who's trying too hard.

How could Rare could ever be expected to release Goldeneye as a movie tie-in?

>> No.3994918

goldeneye actually plays much better on PC if you have a mouseinjector mod for your emulator

but that can be said about almost every console shooter before the advent of dual analogs

I'd say it's overrated rather than it didn't age well

never played it so i can't comment

mario kart & (unless you're a tourneyfag) smash are usually games that get better with each game

I'd just rather have an F-zero game over another mario kart

this. if classic RE was a point & click adventure game I'd say otherwise

What is there not to like? I know I will get a lot of flak for this but I think it aged better than Half-Life which the only thing it has going for it now days is "muh interactive world", which is not that interactive.

It's aged better than Halo and Call of Duty, which are so bland and simple by comparison.

Because it was originally supposed to come out on the SNES.

And I still play the game occasionally using a WASD/Mouse and 60 FPS through emulator and I still have fun. I'd love for someone to try and explain to me how to stop having fun with it though.

the weird strategies you have to employ thanks to goldeneye's weird controls almost make it more enjoyable nowadays imo
not the best zelda but still great. hasn't aged badly at all
2d platformer turned inward but at least has some good challenge unlike the sequels
desu probably my favorite mario kart still. has an elegant simplicity to it and the fact that the drift boost is so easy to abuse just raises the skill ceiling
yeah desu always felt like a melee techdemo to me
good thing the remake exists

That's where you're wrong, kiddo. You don't really think there's an objectively invalid reason for someone who enjoys a game, do you?

I love Goldeneye's controls because you can run and gun down enemies without aiming in most cases, it was definitely built for couch play. I've played Goldeneye: Source and something just feels totally wrong with looking around in all directions and jumping.

Wolfenstein 3D is an officially licenced game for the 3DO. If we were talking about Wolfenstein 3D on PC then no.

Is this seriously at the level of retardedness we're at now guys? That people think you can play Goldeneye on PC and just interchange them like they're the same thing? N64 emulation isn't even accurate.

If you think turning around in a fraction of a second and having a mouse-style accuracy at 60 fps is the same level of difficulty and it's the same game then you're beyond hope.

games DO age you fucking moron. the good ones are the ones that manage to stand the test of time and they're a dime a dozen. don't believe me? right now order a random shovelware n64 game, beat it, and then tell me about the experience. games are designed around the games that came before it. did that work out well? then keep it. was that irritating? then discard it. over 30 or so years you develop a standard that older games don't adhere to, obviously. you have to be literally retarded not to understand this very simple concept

Wait so if there was an official release of Goldeneye on PC at 60 fps this would all somehow be ok? The only reason there hasn't been a port is because of the legal rights to the original game being split between at least 4 different companies and it presumably not being financially worth it to get lawyers to figure all that out.

Yeah it's a bit easier on the default settings, but changing things with 007 mode to make it harder does a good job of compensating for that. I don't think it's a stretch at all to think that the developers put 007 mode in there thinking that people might one day port the game to be playable with mouse and keyboard.

And I've heard this "not the same game" bullshit so many times now and I still don't understand what the fuck you mean. Nothing about the levels or the objectives changes on emulator.

If you have some kind of obsession with playing the game with the kind of lag it had on the original hardware then more power to you, but playing a port of a game with higher definition graphics, smoother framerate and better controls isn't usually seen as a bad thing.

>> No.3996514

>Wait so if there was an official release of Goldeneye on PC at 60 fps this would all somehow be ok?

I'm not saying it's not "okay" to discuss anything, I'm saying it's dumb to interchange them and act like playing on an emulator in a completely different way is the actual game.

>The only reason there hasn't been a port is because of the legal rights to the original game being split between at least 4 different companies and it presumably not being financially worth it to get lawyers to figure all that out.

This is one of the dumbest, most ridiculous statements I've seen on /vr/ for a long time. The reason there isn't a PC port of this game is because Rare were commissioned to create a Goldeneye game exclusive to the N64. The only thing I can think of that you could possibly be getting this from is how people were saying Goldeneye would not be released on Xbox Arcade or Playstation as a part of an emulator because of all the licencing it would require. It has nothing to do with a "port" of the game on the PC.
