Not so much discovered but more like reading you guys rave about them got me excited to play them myself.

The last that I can remember were Breath of Fire, Dragon Quest III and Dungeon Siege (inb4, not retro).

I did discover some games I had not heard about before, like Metal Max, Trip World or The Immortal but haven't got around to playing them yet

Hi pepe. The one I found was Umihara Kawase. Fucking amazing rope swinging platformer.

>> No.4450818

There is no /vr/-core, we aren't like these kind of boards. There's fewer younger people here, although there is a large population of 20-something guys, they're respectful enough and try not to force memes. If anything, there's certain games that are popular to hate for meme reasons, but as far as favorite or "hidden gems" go in /vr/, there is not a list.

Such a Rambo Game.

I'm not even sure what games I know about from here or just googling random old shit...I've got a 13 year old PC so I spend a lot of time looking up anything that will run on it that I haven't played so I've found lots of good things but also turds.

You guys did let me know about a few translations, though.

But if you want to find cool stuff, just google image search a genre you like and click on images and find out what they are and go from there...it's how I found out about Demines: The Revelation and a shitty Fallout rip-off made by Germans with hilariously bad main menu German metal music.

I've been playing some stuff from this list lately. Doki Doki Poyatchio is cute and the amount and variety of random events strewn throughout the world makes everything feel really lively. Modern games with real-time social sim elements like Stardew Valley could really learn from this one. It's a shame it'll probably never get translated.

Well, nothing on /vr/ as far as I remember...

BUT gog.com on gog the recommendations for nosferathu wrath of malachi made me interested into it. So I got it , and holy fuck what a treat. Might not be a /vr/ game timeline wise, but gameplay and graphics it is totally /vr/.

And oh boy if you go into the game without knowing anything, this game will surprise you alot. I love the weapon ballancing and what it does in the game/the gameplay and story idea(s). A really great fps! One of my game of the years next to zombie night terror which should be interesting to vr too, as it is the best "lemmings". Fanservice, violence and lots of fun. Superior to lemmings in all ways.
