What retro system hold the most appeal to you?

Which one holds the least appeal?

For me the Sega Saturn is most appealing most because it seems to have a lot of exclusives that I haven't heard of before.

Least appealing to me is the N64, there are some gems for that system but they all seem to be Nintendo games that either have superior sequels or have been re-released for later systems.

n64
sega saturn

>> No.5693225

>having any 5th gen system as your favorite
Anyway, mine is a tie between MD and SNES, can't decide between these 2 beasts.
Least appealing (of the non-obvious choices like Jaguar, CD-i, etc) is probably Master System. I like a few games on it but out of all the systems I own, it's the one I go back to the least. Don't hate it though.

I like: NES, Mega Drive, US 8-bit computers (not Euro ones), and from time to time PS1

>> No.5693285

NES is the best. So many fucking great games and so many different experiences to be had.
Too bad Nintendo then shit out the fucking N64 and its mediocre library of garbage that they had to viral market and pay off reviewers to make it appeal to new gamers to make it a "success", which is why it doesn't appeal to me at all.

Famicom; I always had a thing for the NES, but the Famicom is more appealing now for the larger, weirder library, and the various different hardware iterations. There's always something to play, whether I'm playing for a few minutes or a few hours.

A lot of the shovelware garbage we were spared is fun kusoge. Obviously I don't want to play 15 different mahjong games, but shit like the licensed shonen bandai games are fun, for example, despite being 'bad games'. We also missed things like Dig Dug, which is a great port and tons of fun, we just got the weird sequel.

Basically exactly what you said OP. Sega Saturn is one of those consoles you get with like 2 games and figure that's it but the more you look into it the more you realize the Saturn library is surprisingly high quantity and quality. It does have an overload of shitty dating sim games but that's nothing compared to the shovelware on ps1. Also my favorite genesis game is ported on the Saturn (Pic related, Castle of Illusion) so it nerfs the appeal of the mega drive significantly for me. I wouldn't say the n64 is my least favorite, but its definitely one of the most overrated systems. As are most retro Nintendo consoles.

Bandai skipped over Dig Dug and Galaxian because there were already plenty of home conversions of those while there weren't ones of Dig Dug II and Galaga.

>>5693363
Space Invaders in fact has only 4k of code which makes it the smallest commercially released game, although the cartridge uses a 16k ROM chip. Also another fun fact was that the US release of Galaga used a 32k ROM but the game itself is 16k (the Famicom version had a 16k ROM).

>> No.5693373

>>5693367
They probably used whatever ROMs were available at the factory. I'm sure by the time Galaga got to the US, 32k chips were cheap enough that they could afford to waste half of one.

>> No.5693380

Namco had the arcade source code and assets on hand so obviously that port of Galaxian is more accurate than the many shitty home computer ports made by playing the arcade game and trying to recreate it from memory.

It is literally THE 3D arcade home console to have. If you're a fan of story driven or even longer gameplay experiences in general, the dreamcast obviously isn't for you. But if you want a 3D arcade experience, the dreamcast and unironically the Wii are the best consoles for that. The only difference is the dreamcast had much less shovelware and a generally higher quality of games. When you look at its library, it's actually pretty impressive just how many great games it got in the span of only 2 to 3 years. Plus the general dreamcast shader-lacking aesthetic of its games were very appealing to the eye. Very bright and colorful with a distinct Y2K feel. It still has my favorite graphics from any console ever.
