It is by two years not retro (2001), but did end a retro console (GBC) and also prequelled a game made 9 years before so.
I would really appreciate its exception.

>> No.5817769

I don't know if this is bait or if you're legitimately retarded, but per the sticky it's primarily the console that determines whether a game is retro. The Oracle games are already talked about a lot anyway. A thread died for this pointless discussion; I really hope it was at least one of the shittier ones.

>> No.5817770

Since when is Gameboy Color not retro? Even if it's in the "rules", it doesn't mean it's true.

>> No.5817827

You poor, poor, hideous fool.
The rules say that games made for any consoles released before 11:59pm on 31st December 1999 are fair game, with Dreamcast getting a slide because reasons.
This means that if the console came out by that time, any game that comes out for it at any point is fine to discuss. As such, let's talk about Cave Story because it was ported to SMD/Genesis a year or two ago. :^)

Dreamcast was released in late 1999.

Yes, a 6th gen console is "retro" because it was released before the year 2000, but the 20 year old PS2 is "modern" because it was released in the year 2000.

2000 is cutoff for PC games. Console games are by generation. GBA is not retro, but GBC is. Just like 2000+ PS1 and Dreamcast games are all retro, 2000+ GBC games also are.

Ask Hiro for that /v2k/ board like people are doing. It would cover 2000 up to before current gen. The end limit would move forward as the gens progress. A bridge board like that would help take the strain off of both /vr/ AND /v/ and would make the jobs of the mods easier in the long run.

>> No.5818406

The PS2 (and the GameCube and Xbox that lived in its shadow) had much more modern games than the Dreamcast had. Console FPSes with weapon limits, "action games" where you just mash X to awesome, and the occasional "open world" game were staples then and still are to this day. Modern games have more in common with PS2 games than Dreamcast games.

People keep saying this and it isn't a good idea. What's /v/ for then? Just FotM and ecelebs? You can say, yeah, that's what the board is anyway, but the underlying problem there is /v/ needs cleaning up. People SHOULD be free to post about any game there, even /vr/ SHOULDN'T have been necessary. But when you can't even talk about the not-too-distant ancestors of the same kinds of games being put out in the current gen, it's a problem. Fuck /v2k/, fix /v/.

No, it doesn't. It needs to die in obscurity. It is nothing but DOOM and arguments as to why Sega is garbage, and why Nintendo is the greatest (or the opposite of that). There is nothing new that is retro, and everything that is retro has been discussed to the point that nothing is original. I don't even think people here play games and they just come here to argue their inane opinions.

Soon.....Letting in the Dreamcast was possibly the worst decision this board's moderation has ever made. There is nothing "retro" about it, and it is fully a 6th generation game console. Using an arbitrary date to define what is retro is always wrong. Either the Dreamcast is retro AS IS the PS2/XBOX/GC or it is not. There is not any middle ground. Eventually these systems will have to be accepted into /vr/ as they are on just about every other "retro" forum out there.

>So it's /v/.
Yes, just specific to arguing about dumb shit pre-Y2k.

>No one has anything interesting or intelligent to say about 5th gen either
No. Most conversations involving 5th gen are asking why sega sucked, why nintendo had a shit library, and why sony's textures looked like shit when they jiggled. It is just the meta, though at one point it was serious...now it is just a joke within a joke with stale pasta. Nintendo and Sony made a fantastic product. Sony made what I see as the true successor to the SNES, meanwhile Nintendo went and did something different, and it worked well. Sega saturn was and will continue to be campy garbage that has its biggest following in Japan.

The best use of /vr/ in my world is troubleshooting and seeing other anons make repair suggestions. I have many of the systems that are points of discussion here, and some are getting past their lifespan. Knowing about specific capacitors and power supplies has certainly helped me. I learned to solder electronics just because I wanted to mod some things. The first electronics mod I ever did was a PSIO. It was easier than most people say it should be, and worked correctly the first time.

>> No.5819840

/v2k/ was being suggested as a potential board by /vr/ posters literally right after /vr/ was created in 2013. It was a good idea then, and it's still a good idea. Judging by the sharp spike in shitposting on /vr/ over the last year, this board does not need more traffic. The new board would adjust the pressure valve down a lot for /vr/ and some for /v/ as well.

>> No.5820005

There's still new things to discuss, too many times have I seen threads get derailed by someone uninterested in the discussion. Far too many bait threads too, as if no one can argue anything without it turning into a fight.
There's a big difference between arguments and fights, and beside that is just calmly stating your opinions and seeing how everyone thinks differently and accepting that.
The dreamcast is 20 years old, no one in their right mind hooks it up expecting anything other than a novel experience based on the past. That Is Retro, just because it doesn't fit the bill for being an even older gaming console doesn't mean jack diddly squat.
There's a stark contrast between hooking up an xbox 360 and a dreamcast. One is a contemporary console and the other is pretty spanking old.

It's also far from the slowest. Adding 6th gen here would speed things up too much and make it much harder to discuss many older games at a pace with which the board has become accustomed, then there would be nowhere on the site to discuss them comfortably without the threads being pushed off a board within a few hours at most.

>> No.5824408

I don't think this is true.

>> No.5824414

Its a realistic concern and could easily happen. /V2k/ is the best option. Email gookmoot

>> No.5824416

Nah, I think this board could accommodate 6th gen easily. This board is about discussing retro games and having more options would only benefit. There's double posts for the same game and lots of pointless console war threads. If there were actual discussions then those could be drowned out.

>> No.5824446

Maybe if there were more topics to discuss since you can only discuss 20th century games so many times.

>> No.5824465


Keeping 6th gen games out is less about the board speed or the kind of games being discussed and more about making this board as unlike /v/ as possible.

>> No.5824479

I just get the feeling that not having newer consoles specifically already creates a unique culture here in retro gaming and >>5824446
having a few more things that we can discuss wouldn't hurt us. There's no real way to know for sure though of course. I understand that retro means 5th and backwards to the majority of posters but I just gather the sense that allowing dreamcast in but not ps2, xbox, and gamecube is a bit of favoritism. The first few years of those three are fairly out of place in todays gaming landscape and doesn't feel at home in the other video game boards. Halo and Blinx, God of War and Jak&Daxter, Metroid Prime and Mario Sunshine, they don't feel modern to a certain degree and discussing them anywhere right now just seems off. With them being disallowed here and no official word on /v2k/'s creation it feels like there's no real place for those of us that'd like to discuss it with one another. Personally it feels like I'm going to exhaust topics here and leave 4chan completely because I don't belong after I'm done discussing Snes, Genesis, and Ps1.

They're much more like modern games than anything that's discussed on /vr/. Until /v2k/ is created, the place to discuss them is on /v/ or in a 6th Gen General on /vg/. If neither of those seems suitable to you, then join the lobbying for /v2k/ yourself.

I'd prefer it greatly if you could agree with me without tacking on a silly idea like this at the end, thanks. The whole point is /vr/ is fine at the pace it goes now. It's actually the best thing about it. If you want to crack out on a board, go to /b/, or /v/, or /vg/, or /tv/, or any one of a multitude of others.

Also, this whole debate was rendered moot (r.i.p.) a day or two ago when a brilliant crossposter put up a very good thread about "why can't you guys have a thread about the PS2 when /v/ can have one just fine, see >>>/v/474483973 ." So, there you go.
