ITT we tell the poster above us why their favorite game sucks (468)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-08-03 05:20 ID:QLhp9ZtD

There was a thread like this in /anime/ and, although it seems to have died from lack of interest, I liked it. Let's try it here.

For instance, assuming >>0's favorite is THE GAME: What fun is a game that can't be won? Also, you just lost it.

My favorite: Metal Gear Solid 3

No protracted arguments in this thread please, just keep it going.

Cave Story sucks because it isn't literally flawless like Majora's Mask.

The North American cover art has too much red and black on it. This is the only possible criticism because the game itself is flawless.

I think they are very fun.

4 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2018-12-18 04:40 ID:kOFG6BDe

I played them back when I was a stupid kid. I still like them, but I don't think they're much good. Pretty unique, and charming to a point, but also a mess.

6 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-02-16 18:10 ID:MunIVPtd

I liked them. I would say all the butt rock in the soundtracks was pretty influential on the music I hear in my head.

I would not say they are great. Or good, even. But definitely alright, with no real substitutes that truly surpass them. They scratch some oddly specific itches, and if you have a good imagination, they could be very inspirational because IMHO gaming took a sharp turn to the overly samey side not too long after that. But fair warning, they're from before devs really gave up on "intelligent camera" in 3D games, so not only is it frustrating, it's to an extent that was considered frustrating when the DC was still kicking.

One great feature in them is recapping the story when you start the game up again. I think that really helps you remember the story long-term as well as jog your memory on what you wanted to do next. More games should do this (unobtrusively, of course). A lot of people who are game devs today grew up on Pokemon entries that did this, yet I don't see them putting features like this in. Ah well.

7 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-05-10 12:58 ID:lmxnhSig

Early modern Sonic is pretty cool and has a nice late 90s-early 00s rock aesthetic. It's kind of funny how the internet hates these games now but not even half a decade ago they were extremely popular and even overrated. Kind of reminds me of the time where games like Zelda 2 and Majora's Mask were once universally hated, but now they're considered beloved classics.

Apparently adventurefags are "rising up" on the interbuttz for the past few days since one of the popular jontron ripoff youtubers that made the game unpopular by shitting on it via youtube got outed as a pedophile/cheater, so everyone on twitter can freely harass him without consequence.

[Old] Was Myst a good or shitty game? (22)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-08-23 18:09 ID:QNJg9iTy

I remember playing Myst when I was pretty young. I liked the graphics and the storyline a lot, even though I was too young to figure out the puzzles without help.

To the point, was Myst a good game for its time?

13 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2016-12-29 22:55 ID:cnPrHqhz

I remember playing that game when I was a kid. That and the spaceship game that came with that Mac screensaver package were the first PC games I ever played.

The puzzles were really too hard for me then though, so I got bored of it pretty quick.

The Myst world was quite lacking in NPCs, where the hell is everybody? Myst 2 riven was the worst Myst I ever played

17 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-06-26 04:57 ID:trgXiaTu

No NPCs is kinda the point, you're exploring this island that you got whisked to after falling into the Star Fissure. Everyone else is trapped in another Age or not accessible from Myst or any of the other books.

19 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-07-16 07:11 ID:xQOnt23l

I remember Myst III was the first Myst I played.Installing the game itself was an adventure in itself as it required several discs to install and at that age I had never encountered such a thing. I didn't get that far in the game itself, but the puzzles I solved did give me a bit of satisfaction at the time.

20 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-09-22 22:07 ID:AUiRjlfV

I played the original when it came out. It was commercially a huge deal, in all the stores, people were even discussing it which was almost unheard of for a PC game. It had an interesting idea behind it. But it wasn't fun or really even more than a curiosity. My memory of it is there, but fuzzy.

A game having metaphysical explanations for why there are no NPCs was relatively novel at the time. People were attracted to this story aspect over than the gameplay. Almost a visual translation of earlier 1980s text adventures.

I feel that young people today would find it too boring.

21 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-09-23 17:03 ID:o+OOvX0N

Myst was all about nosing around in somebody else's house while they're not home.

22 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2019-09-30 22:04 ID:f0KsKGwN

I don't think the explanations are necessarily metaphysical, everyone else is just not on Myst Island or in any of the other ages you visit.

The Neo Geo is the greatest 16 bit machine of all time. From early titles like Magician Lord to the late era triumphs in pushing sprites and pre-rendered CG, Pulstar and Blazing Star shmups, the Neo was king. I remember the days when the home console with $200+ carts was spoken of in hushed tones of awe among kids who had to be content with an NES.

The only down side was the proliferation of fighters on the Neo. Shit, I like SF2 style games as much as anyone, but the Neo could have used a bit more stuff like Metal Slug.

It's a shame what the classic game price bubble has done to Neo cart prices-fucking insane.

3 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2017-07-24 18:44 ID:yDOq8ey3

I wouldn't call the amount of fighters on the Neo Geo a downside, especially since most of these were SNK fighters, only Capcom came close.

4 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2017-07-26 20:56 ID:5p6oZfci

Still it would have been nice if they could have squeezed Magician Lord 2 in there somewhere. ML is a beautiful platformer, with atmosphere forever and a sequel was rumored. First played that game on a 2 slot MVS cab in one of those tiny Walmart arcades back in the late 90s - my first time playing a game on legendary N E O ⚫ G E O hardware - and the lush parallax of the first stage and everything is a cool memory.

7 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2018-09-15 12:34 ID:2kbwQB3y

The price was high because the Neo Geo games use a lot of memory, and memory was freakishly cheap back then.

Super Mario Sunshine (6)

This game scared the shit out of me. From falling in the ground every two seconds, to the scary game over screen and weird creatures. I assume mine was really buggy because I got the game @ Toys R Us on launch and I know they rushed the fuck out of it since they needed to get a Mario game out so the shitcube wouldn't fail.

Hay guise,
so I bought JAST's translated Demonbane (in before me being called a sucker), and noticed the back claims it's "from the creators of Phantom and Chaos;Head" ...
Capitalization issues aside, I don't remember Chaos;HEAd being a Nitroplus production - wasn't 5pb the guilty party? Or are they part of Nitroplus?

86 Name: >>85 : 2011-06-21 21:12 ID:Chhz++jL

Incidentally, I really enjoyed how the Demonbane setup program gave me no option of changing the install directory. I just love cluttering my system partition.

87 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2011-06-22 05:35 ID:AA78X7k4

It was a collaboration between Nitroplus and 5pb. I'm not sure exactly what Nitroplus contributed to it, I'm pretty sure none of their in-house artists or writers were involved.

Great article. I agree with the bit about subcultures and such, stuff that is not made for mainstream appeal but for a small niche is always more interesting. I know of VIPPERS (maninly because of SAoVQ) so its cool to hear about other stuff they did.

Go ahead and check out roguelikes. You might know the popular ones like Dwarffortress or NetHack but there are many many others that have been developed and just faded into obscurity.

RogueBasin is a good place to start but they can be pretty exclusive and byzantine when it comes to defining what a "roguelike" are.

I think those are Sound Canvas samples, Nintendo used them quite a bit. (Well, everyone did in the '90s. Since then, only ZUN remains devoted to them, but he's kind of shit at arrangements so his music sounds eh.)

Check out vids like this: though the demo songs are very... fancy compared to anything you'd hear on the N64.
