Megaman 6
Megaman X6

Though i'm improving at Sigma's battle, getting to him was a pain in the ass, especially Rainy Turtloid/Infinity Mijinion.

6 was quite easy though, no real complaints. I'm playing through all classic and X series from time to time. suggest me some good games to try.

Platformers, arcade-style games, action RPG's and uh, pinball I guess

I wish I wasn't so bad at shmups and fighting games. And I suck at Mega Man.

>> No.954865

I used to think I was skilled at a zillion different games until I got the internet. I was certainly the best locally for a long time, not that it says much when you're the best in a town of 5000 people.

I still think I'm pretty good at Quake though. My skills have diminished a bit, but I can still play Quake 3 online without losing 0-25.

>> No.954868

I usually can get by pretty well in RPG's.

Too bad I suck in any game that you have to research extensively or have to use any form of high-level strategy. Most RTS's and MMO's come to mind.

..what MMOs come to mind when you think about 'high-level strategy' or 'extensive research'?

>> No.954910

NES: Gumshoe (with original zapper, the most people play it wrong)
NES: Rad-Racer (i just have to play it more often, however right now i can get to the 2nd or 3rd stage and then it's game over)

>> No.954947

Any games that have a million different items, that do a million different things... and MMOs usually are the brunt of that category.

>> No.954986

I don't follow unless you give a concrete example. Most RPG-style MMOs are hilariously oversimplified. You aren't arguing that you'd need 'extensive research' to figure out wether your berserker/warrior/generic melee damage dealer/tank needs the items with stats that give HP and physical damage or the stat that gives mana, right?

Life Force. I don't know why. I don't like space shooters, I don't even really like Life Force that much, but for some reason I don't find it that difficult.

Battletoads. Motherfucking Turbo Tunnel. I've got really good at the first 2.5 levels of the game, then I spend all night failing at the Turbo Tunnel.

>> No.955212

I'm pretty good at the first Sonic game on Genesis.
I'm pretty damn good at SMB1.

I'm pretty awful at Megamans 1-6.
Some of the levels/enemies/bosses require godlike reflex at times. Playing through it multiple times helps, but still.

>> No.955223


Sorry. Don't know what to tell you.

For what it's worth, I actually owned GnG and SGnG growing up, and I played them so much (I love the spookyscary) I had no choice but to get good. But I only rented MM/X a time or two and was always like, "Robots? meh..."

Interestingly, my wife is the exact opposite.

(Also, I realize now what a fool I was, but I just can't seem to get them down. I just don't seem to improve with practice with these games. And I still don't care for robots.)

>> No.955234


Metal Gear Solid. I have played that game so many fucking times, because for the longest time it was the only PC game I owned and my brother was always hogging the PSX. It's been a while but I still remember the layouts of most of the early areas.

Fighting games, any one of them. I never get the combos right, I never get the timing down, I can never pull off the finishing moves, I can't fucking do ANYTHING in a fighting game.

>> No.955261

Life Force is pretty much the easiest shmup ever, so that's prbably why.

>> No.955278


I just don't even see how Mega Man isn't the easiest thing in the world for after GnG. Have you ever tried switching immedely from GnG to Mega Man? Seems like suddenly you'd be able control your jumps and armory and nothing seems particularly interested in killing you anymore.

>> No.955282

I take pride in being ok at Skullmonkeys.

Any of the R-Type games. Shmups in general, really. The only one I'm good at, and like, is Einhänder.

I used to love beating other people on games like Magical Drop when I used to have GameTap but can't get into puzzles without reasons as I don't feel the time spent isn't worth it just for the game alone.

Pretty much all FPS. I have terrible spatial awareness when it comes to videogames and get lost really easily when it's a 1st person view.

My /vr/ thing would be Mario World. I can 100% that game no problem, but I can't do anything with modern Marios. Too slippery, I think.
