after posting there for about a year now, I somehow just found out about this board, and I got some questions

why the fuck would anyone willingly play a game made before the 2000s? seriously why?
the ideas and mechanics found in all of these so called retro games have been improved, or in some cases, perfected over the years
just look at the new doom games

why? nostalgia can only last so long

>> No.5808091

I played Doom 1 & 2 far more than the remake on my PS3

Also if you could take back a few dozen of your cronies that would be great

Nobody cares about your terrible opinion. Why would anyone watch movies before Marvel, right? And books written before 1990? Ha. They don't even say yeet.

There are hardly any good modern games. You have bad taste, so you're wallowing around in every disposable, destined for the bargain bin in a month, new release like a pig in shit, looking around shocked that everyone else isn't a pig like you. Standards.

Honestly? We're people who understand new games are "better" technically but playing the games we played when we were younger brings us back to that time. If you can't tell we're a pretty hostile community and that's because our lives aren't exactly going great. We're either out of shape and girlfriendless or we're married and bitter about that and need an escape. It's not really about how good a game or console is. It's about how it makes us feel, and the nostalgic connection we have with it.

Why don't you try it yourself?

Sure retro games are clunky but they're also a lot more challenging and fulfilling as you advance through it.

Most Modern games seem to be 60$ movies that take 100 gb of space.

Retro games are more fun and have more soul. Modern games are shit and cost too much. Modern culture is self destructing and depressing so id rather enjoy living in the past when life was a happier better place.

New games will be long forgotten long before older titles. What happens when servers die and downloads disappear? I can still pop in any PS1 game and go. No updates. No firmware requirements. Just games.

There were wars in the past as well, anon. Self destructing and depressing? We already had this in the past as well, now it's just more mainstream because of social media and how easy it is to access information and other people's lifes.
Life was happier in the past because you were a kid, whose parents had to work their ass off in your so called "happy times" to provide you with careless childhood and keep your brain busy with games.

Eat shit, I fucking adore Doom despite having no nostalgia for it.

>> No.5808418

>>5808082

Because fuck massive publishers, fuck £60 games, fuck yearly Assassin's Creed and CoD releases, fuck Early Access and DLC and updates that add microtransactions and fuck different release versions of games.

I can play a whole slew of games created under limitations that led to interactive pieces of art. I can play them on the original hardware bought off Ebay for a fraction of modern prices, on my PC or on my TV via Raspberry Pi, even on my phone if I want. And when I do I'm not sifting through the crap as it's produced; I can pick and choose the finest releases of three decades or dive deep into an obscure bullshit game that only resonates with me.

If someone told you that they listen to the best music from the 70s, 80s and 90s it would not be considered strange. They're just missing out on the turd slurry that comes from each generation and waiting until the gems have been found and washed clean.

They're fun, are more influenced by arcades, and typically have non convoluted plots so that the game is purely about the game rather than a bunch of extraneous bullshit.

Not him but OoT is regarded as the best retro game. In 1998 there was no other "open world" 3D game, Legacy of Kain was just a platformer. Today OoT isn't open world at all, it's boring and slow. The writing is bad. Breath of the Wild is objectively great, truly open world, and the physics engine is still being played with. Modern games are technically better.

Doom is one of the games considered a cult classic though.

>fuck yearly Assassin's Creed and CoD releases, fuck Early Access and DLC and updates that add microtransactions and fuck different release versions of games.
But expansion packs, especially standalones, and sequels every several years are good though.

It's all about patience being put into practice it'n'it.
>>5808423
You can hand pick an fps from a few different series and those are fairly better when objectified. There's a whole slew of good platformers that have good camera positioning and better controls. There's a pleroma of metroidvania.
The kicker is even with all of these improved games, it can't detract from the legacy status of older games that did quite a bit right the first time around.

Technically isn't always a tell for quality nor does it account for taste.

I could agree with you on that. Although the "best retro" is a really debatable.

Open world games, including Breath of the Wild, blow. Shallow, non-skill intensive time-wasters for people yourself, who don't actually like video games, but just need something to do to kill hours in their completely empty day.
