Noob from /tg/ here. Where are the huge image files/wiki articles suggesting a huge list of classic games by category and genre?

I just got a Dimension 3100 (Yes, it's quite a big steaming pile of crap, thank you very much) hooked up to my Apartment's TV, and I'm using it for streaming and as a cheap retro-console. Thus, I need suggestions, both for good Multiplayer and epic storyline games.

Apologies in advance for any offenses/inter-board conflicts this thread may incur... But at least Shadowrun SNES was a great game, right?

>> No.4157914

>>4157903
The classic games will be like "Sonic, Mario, Street Fighter lol".

Now, there's a ton of god-tier games (Alien Soldier, Windjammers, Tobal 2...) that may not be considered classics because only retro gaming nerds know them.

So, what do you want?

The /vr/ road-trip through 16-bit era multiplayer classics for me and my roommates to enjoy would be a good start, specifically with the backwoods tour of unsung classics. I can get the classics from any top ten list or most downloaded under the "Multiplayer Roms" category.

Besides that, I'm also looking for completely original and unique experiences. Games that have an incredible atmosphere or story that hasn't been replicated before or since.

In the "unsung multiplayer classics" category, please include Pocket Fighter, Waku Waku 7, Violent Storm, Windjammers, Uniracers, and even famous games like Micro Machines or NBA Jam (famous back then, not even discussed today).

I suppose the images above do already mention Bomberman or Gunstar Heroes, thus no need to go there.

METAL SLUG 3, play the first two metal slugs first along with X.
Wave Race 64. Best wave physics EVER.
Space channel 5 part 2. One of the funkiest rhythm games ever. Play the first part too obviously
House of the dead 2. Personal favorite lightgun game.
Twinkle star sprites! The most hardcore versus puzzle shmup ever. Quite a bit of fun.
Megaman Legends. In my experience it's the best 3d character exploration game. Fun.
F-ZERO X. HARDCORE RACING HELL YES. Takes practice to reach first place on the first race but it's all so satisfying.

Splatoon, and Elite Beat agents are not retro.


Also recommended: Lords of Thunder. Awesome shmup with an amazing soundtrack. Play the pc-98 version, that version's soundtrack is so much more ROCKIN'.

it's actually legal everywhere in america. though some states will try to jump through some hoops to get you arrested anyway. just don't go flaunting your fetish everywhere.

>>4159346
anon, that kind of thinking will get people in jail for the stupidest crap.

even if you're not into lolis, imagine having your computer confiscated for one reason or another in an alternate universe where America HAETs lolis. Now, you being the no-loli man you are might think you're safe, right? However, the gov guys come back and say that these huge boob'd anime ladies say they're 17! 18 is the legal limit! so you get thrown in jail because drawings have rights.

Australia has it worse since a legal-aged small-boobed lady could get you thrown in jail too! A crude drawing of a stick figure giving another stick figure a blowjob and proclaiming that the stick figures are only 8 years old will get you thrown into jail!

It's this type of thinking that'll have the popo harass dumb nerd losers rather than catch actual rapists, murders, and general scum-bags.

So you see, even if you don't wanna tap it, that loli butt stands for freedom, integrity, and trust. It is a foundation in which we understand one another and aim for a cleaner and more responsible society.

I'm okay with the 32-bit extension and shell for a 16-bit operating system, that's basically what Win9x was.

But no, DOS was never a "patch" for an (CP/M) 8-bit operating system. DOS nor CP/M was never made for a 4-bit microprocessor.

Win2000 and XP are also 32bit. But they're worlds apart from Win98. Win 2K in particular has great performace.

Win2k and XP have nothing to do with that saying though, Win9x is literary a graphical shell for DOS with 32-bit extensions, Windows 2000 and XP are already pure 32-bit NT and don't run on DOS.
