All those games, and I still prefer the experiences I had with the handful of good N64 games. I'm not going to argue that the PS1 did not have the superior library, but if you didn't care for fighting games, rhythm games, or RPGs, the Nintendo 64 was a better console. I have no qualms in saying that, if you preferred platformers, the Nintendo 64, especially with it's immensely better movement control, even if there were few platformers compared to the PS1, was the better console.

Turn-based games are comfy. Lets you relax and do things as quickly or slowly as the mood strikes you. Often there's a tactical element, resource management considerations. Action games are fun, but sometimes you just want an experience like Front Mission. Production value tends to be higher for these types of games as well.

>Lets you relax and do things as quickly or slowly as the mood strikes you.
I grew very tired of these games because very little of the game requires your focus. There are so many segments where it's press x to win, or a different combination that can be done in your sleep.
This isn't an inherent objection to the game, as chess is turn-based, and, outside of the opening, every second has an opportunity for focus, calculation, prediction. etc. Closest that exists to this is speed running JRPGs, which requires far too much memorization and repetition.

Really doesn't unless you're emulating with fast forward.

>> No.5321907

>Really doesn't unless you're emulating with fast forward.
I tried to do this once with something like Final Fantasy IX. One problem is that the controls really don't work for speeds I might want, which is a problem that video games have over books, even movies, where you struggle with the controls if you make the games play at too fast a rate.
There's also a problem that random battles become fun at no speed, and it's still a lot of just pressing x to win, and then there are parts of battles that require little focus, and then ones that require lot, meaning if you want to be challenged, you have to be constantly changing the playback speed to suit how fast the game need to go.
This actually describes well how I watch all videos, (whether it's movies, YouTube, Netflix), but again, having to wrestle with the controls at those speeds is one thing, and emulation isn't as convenient, so what little I've tried of it gives me the impression it's not worth it.

People were still reluctant to new systems by electronic companies after Panasonic's 3DO and Phillips' cd-i.
If you think people stopped playing 4th gen systems suddenly in 1995 to play fucking Tekken and Ridge Racer (oh and let's not forget other amazing PS1 early titles, like The Horde! lol), you're flat out wrong.
A lot of people were also still catching up with the huge SNES and Genesis libraries. Remember in late 94 we got DKC and Sonic 3&Knuckles. Those 2 titles alone were more important than whatever shit PS1 had at launch.

Maybe, but then I might think games were too much of a time sink, which is what I would consider turn-based games to be.

Jesus FUCK.

>> No.5328392

Haha no. Dreamcast was definitely the weakest 6th gen console hardware wise. The only real problem with the PS2 vs the Dreamcast is that the PS2 has small VRAM and a lack of hardware texture compression which makes things hard to fit in. Literally in every other way the PS2 is better.

-PS2 has WAY higher T&L performance.
-PS2's alpha blending performance is so much faster than Dreamcast that the latter may as well be a last-gen console in comparison.
-PS2's texture blending / pixel blending stuff is also a lot faster.

A lot of the so-called advantages that the Dreamcast has aren't really a thing. Sure the Dreamcast supports anti-aliasing (supersampling) but it's basically useless in practice because it's so slow. Also the Dreamcast has proper mipmapping while the PS2 doesn't (which is why PS2 games have those shimmering distant textures). BUT the Dreamcast's trilinear filtering performance is poor (requires 2 cycles like N64 and the DC doesn't have many more cycles to spare) so you usually get these ugly mipmap lines in Dreamcast games (see Sonic Adventure).
