Man I dont think I'll ever not despise yet continuously be amazed by Nintendo fanboys who still engage in their little circlejerks and echo chamber discussions, they literally have zero integrity as gamers.

I'd love to know how Nintendo made total brain dead loyal nutcases out of so many people but the more I think about it these subhuman shitstains were probably weak to begin with who would've joined any cult who showed them the lowest hanging fruit first.

The N64 was a fucking garbage console, it had no games and bombed globally and you will never rewrite history. Great games are far more important and worth being recognized and celebrated far more than your continued loyalty to Nintendo and such a shit console you sad, pitiful subhuman cockroaches.

D-pads: Saturn > PS > N64

I've never liked Nintendo's cross d-pads. They feel really stiff and make my thumb ache after a while. My favourite d-pad is the one for Mega Drive and Saturn, but basically any d-pad I've used except the Xbox 360 and Master System ones are better than the Nintendo one.

>the N64 was good for platformers
Collectathons are not real platformers.

>> No.4126895

To me it's Saturn>N64>PS

I never liked the sony d-pad, I know it's basically the same as the SNES but the segmented form of it makes it feels less comfortable.
The SNES/N64 d-pad stops feeling stiff once you give it some use. Most SNES pads are very used by now, but the N64 d-pads are still stiff because most people who only got a N64 to play games like Mario 64, OOT or Goldeneye, never really gave the d-pad any use, so it's still brand-new, 20 years later.

A little bit of everything. If you're going to pare every console down to one standout genre, I'd say the ps1 had the market cornered on stealth games, vehicular combat games, jrpg's, survival horror, and extreme sports games (snowboarding, dirt bikes, skateboarding and bmx)

Although I regularly play my saturn and n64 and don't even own a ps1/2 these days, there's no denying that the first 2 PlayStations have some of the absolute best libraries

>> No.4131260

If anything I'm a Sega fanboy, but there's no denying that Mario 64, Ocarina of Time and Goldeneye are 3 of the most enduringly popular and influential games of all time. If that was it's entire library the n64 would still be a kick ass system.

Sure, the library is pretty small for a major console and gas what feels like a disproportionate amount of shovelware, but the 20 or so good games on the system are bona fide, stone cold classics.

Sometimes this was for the better.

This. Video cutscenes have the same problem CGI from the 90s and 2000s have. Cutting edge for its time but utterly laughable when seen just years later. Spiderman on the even stronger Dreamcast just is a mess whenever it goes into video.

Opinion. The less FMV, the better the game will age. There's a reason the SNES and 64's (very) small list of hits will just be far more relevant in the future than anything released on early 90s CD consoles, with exceptions like FFVII.

PS1's pretty ace for racing and RPGs.
even pre-DualShock games have analog support if you get a neGcon or a compatible wheel (and since the device launched with the PS1, it's widely supported)

>never actually used a PS1 controller
it physically is a true d-pad in one solid piece
the dualshock 2 (and the 3, but it's less of a problem there) has issues with diagonals because they only generate a digital input when the buttons are pressed at max pressure, but the original digital PS1 controller and original DualShock do not suffer from that problem (actually, due to the design, it's too easy to hit diagonals sometimes because you'll be pressing entirely on down, rock your thumb a little to the side, and bam, accidential down+left/right)
