Been playing this game thanks to you shills.

Jesus fuck how is this not regarded as one of the greatest games of all time?

It's like if someone made a Final Fantasy game for people who aren't retards and then added in actual role playing elements that you can freely fuck with, a true sense of adventure and exploration and actual strategy.

i'm a big fan of the series. but if it finds a resurgence in popularity, i think it's just because of the /vr/ community getting older and developing more refined tastes. this is comfiness for adults.

Then you've heard wrong, the best game in the series is Uncharted Waters II and is in English on PC/Snes/Genesis.

I never really liked what I saw of UW 3 and 4, I'd much rather have a translation of the PSX version of 2.

The Patrician series is basically the adult man version of this. Port Royale ain't half bad either. Actually, there are a ton of games like this, minus the JRPG shit, which really only detracts from the overall quality of the game anyways.

Which is the best one for SNES

>> No.5497372

>>5496445

Well there's only two on Snes (and two on Genesis for that matter)
and IMO both games compliment each other, sure the first one looks less pretty but it stars the father of a guy in the 2nd game.
so personally I felt my experience was enriched by playing the first game first, and then starting the 2nd game with his son (Joao).

But if you're only gonna play it for a little bit then play Uncharted Waters II New Horizons.

PSX, but its not in English so..

Superior.. hard to say, the Snes does some things differently than the Genesis version.
but there's no version that has cut stuff, they're both pretty similar.

I like the reverb on the snes music though.

Its a simulator/management game. Don't even try convince me that bullshit is anything but an extreme detriment to the game's design. And even so, okay, lets say the controlling the single character approach is something that should be appreciated. Lets say UW is a game where you roleplay as an explorer/trader, that is the main focus. Does that mean we compare UW to games like Space Rangers and Star Control? What niche does this game fill where it doesn't look like garbage compared to everything else in the same niche?
>>5495582
>The Patrician series is absolute garbage, mate.
The complexity of the trading system completely blows UW out of the water and the simulation going on in the background, as shit as it is, still totally dwarfs anything UW has.

Thanks for torpedoing your own point with your immense shit taste, faggot and thank god your absolute garbage preferences don't dictate whether UW games get made or not.

Thief is dead. RCT is dead. Caesar is dead. Freespace is dead. Command and Conquer is dead. Might and Magic is dead. Hell, pretty much every good video game series has died. The only ones that keep getting sequels are ones that appeal to stupid and easily impressed people.
