Can anyone tell me if anyone has ever actually seen "hipsters" into retro games? I went to an old liberal arts school and now I guess would be considered a "yuppie" but liking retro games was never seen as a signifier for being hip.

Plenty of people I know like games in general, and I know plenty who like retro games too, but I've never seen the kind of fawning over Earthbound or desire to buy physical media that some anons here claim is a big issue. If anything, most devs and managers I know just emulate stuff.

Once the 90s ended, normies started to realize that nerd shit was in vogue, so they started claiming to be nerds without actually knowing anything. I remember in particular when Brittany Spears tried to claim she was a nerd and the internet exploded in disgust.

Anyway, this isn't threatening in and of itself, but then you start seeing children who don't know the difference between nerd stuff and normies. Children are, by default, idiots, so they just accept some fake adult claiming they like dungeons and dragons (because they played it once and have a rulebook) as the genuine article.

Now fast forward to those kids being about 20. These people literally do not understand that "nerd hobbies" were hobbies that faced a ton of ridicule and were only fostered in esoteric groups of eclectic people that cared more about their hobby than the hate spewed about it.

I don't really care either way, but I can understand why someone who doesn't understand how culture works because they were born after it changed would sound really fucking stupid concerning simple facts. I guess hipsters are these people if you define a hipster as someone like this.

Please tell us how "real gamers" are supposed to enjoy their hobby to be respected by the likes of you.

Im not critisizing the people playing games. But have you wver met someone who says they only play retro games, and yet the only games that they talk about are Ocarina, EB, and Mario World. No Neverhood, no Rollerderby, nothing remotely obscure. Every time you try to talk to them about a game they say "Oh, never heard of it. Is it as good as SF2?"
Yet you ask them to play Wii or XBOne and they say "Sorry, I only play the classics."

I've met people like that often and I don't really see a problem. There's nothing wrong with different grades of being into retro games. Sure, it would be great if I had more friends who knew about lesser known console and computer games and could even do multiplayer of them every once in a month but I simply acknowledge it. On the other hand, I know that there are tons of games or even platforms out there that I barely know, let alone play games on them more than once and I don't feel like playing them for now or never. It's not even because I don't like trying out other games or because I'm not interested in getting other consoles or computers. I simply don't care about them and don't try to fit in with others or try to impress others with my collections or "gaming knowledge" and I'm sure people like you would think the same.

Let's be honest, how many people on this board even KNOW every computer, console, handheld or arcade platform or the kind of games for them, let alone own(ed) them or played them? Does it matter that they haven't or not?

I really liked the first game more too, even though it's objectively worse. it's unbalanced, tedious and cryptic to the point of requiring a walkthrough thru like half of it, but the relatively open world, all the secrets and the wonderful art style and music just makes it so much more memorable than earthbound imho.

We couldn't get the SNES and N64 in Russia because they were hard to clone, being based on completely proprietary chipsets. And Nintendo wasn't interested in selling anything officially in the post Soviet countries back then, the people were just too poor for them to make a profit.

We've got a myriad of NES clones, very good Megadrive clones which were pretty much indistinguishable from the real thing and later on real Playstations and 3DO. And then the globalization finally dawned upon Russia and we've got everything else.

Russians still have no nostalgia for SNES and N64. Most people played those games only in the early 2000's using an emulator.
