For me it's always been Tekken 6.

It was the last game I've ever felt any hype for, the last one I was truly excited for.
Back in college 2008, back when I still had friends, we used to meet up after school at the nearest arcades, then we started meeting up at the arcades early every weekend, when the game came out for consoles 2009 I was the one of the first of us to have a copy.
We started skipping class and going back and forth to my place mid-day to play.
I've had a lot of memories tied to this game so to speak, but after this I've never been as engaged and excited for a game since, the last game I was excited over was Kingdom Hearts 2 with my cousins and classmate.

Sure I can still sit down and enjoy newer games, I can still spend hours on end on older games, but this game marks the end of an era for me in games, it reminds me that I'm no longer part of the demographic that developers make games for; that I'm no longer a part of the target audience.


And what exactly is the problem, if you can play the old games?

SHOC and Arsenal of Democracy (so, ie. HoI2) are latest games I play.

For console games, 3D is what made games uninteresting for me, especially 3D platformers. SMB3 is one of my favorite games, but I can't stand Mario 64 for example.

3D fighters with sidestep I dislike too, so Tekken 3 was shit, when 2 was pretty nice VF clone.

3D SHMUPS don't exist. Say whatever, they don't for me.

>it reminds me that I'm no longer part of the demographic that developers make games for; that I'm no longer a part of the target audience.

Which happens all the time in regards with popular entertainment: the change from primary hard arcade games to easier 3D shooters and such was not the first such happening; 50's 60's rock'n'roll gave way for prog and prog gave way for whatever crap came in 80's.

If you want one thing that will change very little during single generation, listen to European art - that is classical music.


And by the way, I never had any friends to play games with, arcades ceased to exist here in the early 90's, but I don't complain or feel 'left behind' as a demographic group.


PS5… has it been that long since PS2?


I never felt "hype" for anything because I'm not a huge retard.

Are those sprites hand drawn or just pre-rendered 3d models? Looks beautiful nonetheless


Those are KOF13 sprites; it's basically rotoscoped 3d models.


Is it just me or is there a huge difficulty bump between 99 Dream Match and Evo?

If Dreamcast ports are accepted that is…

Tried adjusting the difficulty level of the CPU opponents?


Yup, of course. The lowest difficulty level in Evo is harder than the middle one in Dream Match.

In the Evo I just constantly, even in the second or third fight, get caught in combos and be done with it.

A game release 2 decade ago predicted so much about future.

Mass surveillance and spying on citizen. Google and facebook having info of citizens like icarus , morpheus AI. Self employment on decline and wealthy controlling the world.

Restriction on speech and criticism. Everything feels so compartmentalized.

why did the deus ex redpill video get taken down?


Did Deus Ex foreshadow WW3?



considering WW3 has yet to happen, no.


Deus ex just threw all the 80's cyber punk tropes in together. It's only "predicting" in the sense that it includes every possible thing so some of it will be right. People who don't read books or watch old sci fi movies find it fresh and innovative when it's not even close.


The original renderers were unoptimized, not the game in general.

Dohnal's opengl renderer will make the game run much better even with contemporary hardware.

>Mass surveillance and spying on citizen

Happened since Ivan the Terrible's oprichnikis. Reached climax with the three European totalitarian ideologies last century.

Not that wiz, but some of my favorites are: Monster Hunter, Katamari Damacy (although the controls are kinda weird due to having only one stick), Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles, Persona 1,2 and 3, Patapon, GTA: Chinatown Wars.


Can you give us an overdrive link of them?


I'm not sure what you mean, if you wanna download them I usually use cdromance


I was just looking for a collection of your favourite games i could download


The best Dreamcast titles are dirtcheap.

But it's the obvious choice, because 99% of ever manufactured Dreamcast's play backups without modification.

CD-r will make the laser work harder compared to pressed disc and thus it will die faster.

I get 1.5 months off from the corona virus memes so I figured it would be a good time to play some single player games.

Specifically what I'm trying to find are games that are:
1. Playable on PC (or emulatable on PC)
2. Games that are beatable and have an ending (e.g. Half-Life 2, Dark Souls, etc.)
3. Not so much looking for niche genres (e.g. 2d puzzle, simulation, etc.)

Obviously a lot of games fit this criteria, you can probably think of about 10 franchises off the top of your head, but it would be interesting to see some non-franchise obscure titles if you know of any. Just solid single player games "beatable" games.

Pic related is a game probably no one here has heard of. It's a decent game for the time and it fits the criteria. I'm sure everyone here has played a couple random games like this. I'm just trying to make the most of my 1.5 months of NEET.

What locations in games do you wish were real or wish you could see for real? What reason do you want to see that place be real?

Games for 30-year-old boomers: oldish stuff, some new shit worthy of attention. None of that zoomer shit.

Rebalancing an old game for fun..


How are these boomer games?


my guess for why the wiz posted kenshi:
single player
can pause the game and control time
real time strategy squad/god game
tactical thinking is rewarded
old fashioned user interface

the thread does say "some new shit worthy of attention. None of that zoomer shit." and it doesn't seem like zoomer shit


What do you mean by boomer games? Gamer boomer have played in their youth or games a boomer could play and enjoy? If it's the latter I definitely see why an older guy would enjoy Kenshi, not sure about Soma.


File: 1602904403725.gif (36.75 KB, 205x219, 205:219, 20201025.gif) ImgOps iqdb

See OP; 30+ year old games are his definition of boomer.

for anyone reading right now don't listen to >>40331, if you're on PC play yakuza 0 and then yakuza kiwami.

saya no uta is a comfy VN, by the same person who made madoka magica, never watched it but saya no uta is a very interesting game that had me thinking about the story a while after I finished it

with regards to games I would recommend, I had fun playing VA-11-HALL-A and a lot of fun playing the original dark souls a few years back, don't waste your money on the remaster it looks worse in some bits.

the games I had most fun on co op was factorio though I would have had as much fun playing it on single player.

if you like factorio try zachtronics games or getting into CS/discrete mathematics.

I would like to get into arcanum or underrail but am too low IQ for either, whenever I tried to ask for help about them online I was responded with "fuck off troll" I dunno if the community is schizophrenic or if I am that retarded.

>Dig through old games chest to try to find my old copy of "Misadventures of Tron Bonne."
>Not there.
>Remember it went missing after visiting cousins about a decade ago.
>Go to ebay to look up old, used copy.

>Get into playing old .Hack series.

>Never got to the Quarantine disc when I was younger, so I never got it.
>Look up on ebay.

This really hurts me to see online. Especially the former. I know I had that game. I should've kept a tighter leash on it.


I'll never understand collectors


Saw Silent Hill 1 go for $1,000 on eBay once, so I feel your pain. Even the others in the series go for large sums.

got back into shogun 1 total war years after and holy fuck this game is harder than i remember


I used to own clay fighters 63 and a third sculpture edition my water heater leaked in my box of n64 games and ruined them, that game is like $500 with the box


I usually play cs1.6 because my pc can run actual games.
