When I play platformers, I expect platforming, not shmup-style gameplay.

Sonic 1 is absolutely unfun to play. Marble Zone is one of the worst things ever. The controls in that game are just bad.

>I disagree but if you can actually argue this point I'm all ears
I like both, but it’s really preference. Zelda 2 is just more fun and rewarding with its gameplay. Zelda 1 is fun too, but I feel like most of it is just “look at the guide, do the thing”. You could not look at a guide at all, but that game is cryptic as hell.
I also like the world more. Zelda 2 has much more distinct locations, and it’s fun gradually unlocking the new areas. The original Zelda just feels plain and dull.

Most if not all 2D super scaler type of racing games suck compared to top down racers, 3D racers and mode 7 racers.
Early 3D arcade racing games have unfun weightless physics.

It's Sparkster (SEGA), it feels like a "Konami Team B" effort just like the SEGA version of TMNT: Tournament Fighters.

Curiously enough, it's considered the direct sequel ("Sparkster: Rocket Knight Adventures 2"), even though the SNES Sparkster resembles the original way more in both gameplay and game design.

They're archaic, but you have no idea how far the genre has gone. There are really good Japan Only PS1 and Saturn Beat em ups.

I don't think you understand what Turn Based means.

I kinda agree with Sonic 1 not being good, but that doesn't mean it's bad. It's just not the best Sonic game.

I don't find any joy in collectathon games like Mario 64 and Banjo. I think they're most boring shit ever to exist, and the genre effectively killed Mario for me (that, and the annoying voice clips).

I haven't been able to play a single Mario game after the SNES. I love Mario 1-2-3-World, I love running and jumping on shit with tight controls and funky music. Yoshi's Island and Mario RPG are on my top 5 GOAT, I love how the later's depiction of Mario as a character. But I can't find any fun whatsoever on Mario 64 onwards. It's not entirely nostalgia either, the N64-PS1 was probably the generation I played the most. I just got Mischief Makers and Goemon's Great Adventure instead. Fuck bing bang wahoo.

All of my "unpopular opinions" are default views on /vr/.

SotN has a very flat difficulty curve, which makes it a bad game.
FFVII has a laughable mess for a script with non-gameplay on top.
Xenogears seems to have been written by a twelve-year-old.
Planescape: Torment seems to have been written by a sixteen-year-old.
Dragon Quest has held up much better than Final Fantasy.

>Donkey Kong Country games are shallow collectathons and are only notable for their visuals.

After playing them for the first time a few years ago yes. I was kind of underwhelmed. They get hyped up as being amazing, and while the graphics were really amazing at the time, (and maybe even now) I think the music is great, but honestly it's just an average platformer of the time. People tend to get extremely nostalgic for them too (which is fine) but that also builds up hype.

I hate sports games that try to be realistic, I imagine the type of people who play them are the ones who weren't good enough for their school football team and still think about it to this day.

Casual sports games like nba jam and many from around 1990 to 2000 are great especially in multiplayer but once madden introduced selecting your play it was the begining of the end.

Speedrunning is entertaining too watch because you only have to watch the runs that turned out perfectly, and the novelty of seeing some autists break down one of your favorite games is pretty cool too.

However the act of speedrunning seems to be the most tedious shit ever, spending hundreds of hours doing the same shit over and over, praying on RNG and reseting constantly just hoping to beat a game 0,2 seconds faster than everyone else seems miserable.

This is the problem with "competitive" single player games (speedrunning, shmup high scoring, etc.), and why they're a huge mistake.

Any game needs a little bit of autism to be entertaining, you need to be able to put some time into it for it to feel rewarding and exciting. But there's a point where it stops being entertainment and starts being disgusting (along with you).

Fighting games and shit like that might require a similar level of autism to stuff like speedrunning or getting a trillion points in Mushihimesama, but they AT THE VERY least get you out of the house and actively interacting with other human beings. Grab a beer and some pizza with the boys after your tournament, etc.

Speedrunning and shmup "super playing" on the other hand encourages you to stop being a fucking human being, and almost everyone I've met who was deeply into that sort of stuff was some variety of disgusting degenerate.

1cc your game, get a good score/time, good times. All well and good. But leave it at that. Cave games trying to be on par with fights with infinite optimization was one of the worst thins to ever happen to the shmup community, and speedrunning was doomed to become tranny hell the moment the internet came into the picture and it wasn't just sharing and circulating Doom VHS's with friends.

Story? Compelling, minor flaws.
Battle? Outside of tactic based RPGs the materia system was probably the most intricate system in the mainstream RPG games.
Music? Beats out 6 easily.

Anyone that hates FFVII should have a pretty good argument or I'd consider it a shit post.

iIs it really considered the best? Anyway, is not just a matter of difficulty levels, Castlevania IV has a great atmosphere, is fun, the soundtrack is top tier, has a strong sense of adventure, and also had some impressive use of the MD7 for its time, like the tunnel room or the golem boss. I don't think is overrated. The game is very good, but it's hated a lot too.

Sonic 1 is good even today and provides an experience you won't find on the sequels. Everything down to the physics, basic movement and challenge were nailed in it. The marketing was also stong, it seems. Since it still provokes some ugly reactions toward the game and sequels.

amazing master palette, nice effects like translucency and scaling / rotation of a background layer, but underpowered CPU and some sprite size restrictions. older hardware from 1987 (PC Engine) and 1988 (Mega Drive) could still compete with it
>Nintendo 64 (1996)
fairly strong, but full of bottlenecks. Nintendo discouraged the use of custom microcodes that prioritized performance over graphics, so even the AAAs were blurry messes running at 20fps

Most of the actual IV hate comes from just console war reasons, and a few tryhard zoomers parroting Egoraptor. The game is not actually easier than other 16-bit castlevanias.
Also yeah it's considered one of the best, most CV rankings online have SOTN, IV and Rondo of Blood, in different positions, but this top III is almost always consistent, with III as well if we only count classicvanias and leave out SOTN, which is by far the actual overrated CV game.
Also, you can't go online and talk about any popular game without finding contrarians, hate and baiting, this isn't exclusive to castlevania IV.

That'll always happen with things like trying to prevent piracy. The ones abiding by the rules are the ones who get shafted while the ones they're trying to punish, well, stay exactly the same.
For the most part people who pirate wouldn't buy the game anyway. It's like this (hypothetical numbers etc obviously)

>1000 sales and 2000 torrents
>Profit:$1m
>Game companies think that means they've lost an additional $2m in sales because that's how many people pirated
>Incorporate multiple memes to combat piracy that fuck over people who bought the game
>This is hypothetical so let's pretend these measures actually do combat piracy and piracy is ended
>Next iteration of game comes out
>1000 sales and 0 torrents
>Profit: $1m

Even when they aren't screeching about piracy they're screeching about key sites because they don't get money from them. I pirate some games and if I like them enough then maybe I will buy them, but only from key sites where the cost is much less and so I can keep them updated. If piracy and key sites were completely stamped out I simply wouldn't buy the game. Either way the change in the number of sales is negligible.
It's like that for most things because nothing is being thought through. One of the most obvious ones is "gun control".

>Someone illegally procures a gun and murders someone
>Fuck over all of the law abiding gun owners by giving out mandatory prison sentences for having a gun and who are now left unarmed, lest they become a criminal
>Those who procure them illegally now know they're much less likely to be shot by someone law abiding and don't really care too much about getting a several year prison term for possession considering they're risking lifetime incarceration anyway should they be caught for that little thing called murder

I can never tell if those in charge really are this brain dead or if they're just pretending to be. Even then I don't know which is scarier.

Maybe amongst /vr/ regulars, but I think FF7 still has it beat amongst the general population. FF6 has problems (mainly with its battle system) but its one of the more coherent FFs in terms of story. FF7 is just a mess in that regard. It starts off as a story about ecoterrorists vs an energy company and ends with a shirtless man with wings threatening to summon an asteroid to blow up the planet and a crazy man with faulty memories trying to stop him.
