I've beaten so many games from my childhood, but I still have a bunch left to go. LOZ: WW and LOZ:TP, Luigi's Mansion 1, (technically) Brawl since I've never finished the achievements, Kirby's yarn, GTA 4 and DLC, GTA 5 (no DLC?), Sonic Colors, Sonic Heroes (but I won't lmao), Wario Land SHAKE IT!, Sonic and the Secret Rings (but maybe not), and probably more. Glover and DarkSiders 1 and 2.
I don't want to even bother with DarkSiders 1 and 2, Sonic and the Secret Rings because they both didn't appeal to me. Also Sonic Heroes because it's over 100 levels of the same levels, don't get hit, collect every ring. Wow, that sounds horrible.
So 14 games minus 4 games = 10 games. I have no real desire to beat anything right now and I have a bunch of other stuff in my life, so it might take me until I'm a full blown wizard to beat this, but that's not too long.
DarkSiders 1 is cool though, 2 and 3 are shit
im already anhedonic vegetable
i tried downloading many emulators and played many games in my twink years, quickly realized that video games are a waste of time. doesnt matter what you see or what you do, its all just flashing lights and ultimately pointless at the end of the day, there is no suspension of disbelief, i look at my computer screen i dont see a fantasy world i see smudges of dirt, pixels, and floaters in my vision.
life is the real video game, and for me that game is over indeed
Finish Cold Steel Series (last game isnt out)
FF 12 (Like the setting and story but hate the battle system but I have finished every mainline FF other than this one)
Replay all the MSQ from FF14 (I just started)
replay original Starcraft
replay Chrono trigger
Build huge city in cities skylines
finish FF7 remake (the non released parts)
Finish pokemon shield
play Zelda breath of the wild
play first Xenoblade chronicles
play Drakengard 1 -3
play Divinity Original Sin 2
There are probably others I am forgetting.
Play Nier Automata its a masterpiece and one of the few games that made me cry. It should drop in price on steam eventually.
>>49385>New Vegas, Morrowind, and Skyrim
u havent played these games yet lol
just play them. u dont even need mods besides a unofficial path to fix bugs the developers didnt
i played morrowind when i was likw 2 years old on a fat xbox (hexbawks)
it was fun but i cant play it on my PC 30 minutes without a random CTD for no reason
I regret making this thread. Unless you're 15 then you missed the entire point of the thread.
This isn't your backlog, it's childhood revisited to conquer something you always wanted to but never could.
i did that shit when i was still twink teenager
i realized the futility of consuming bullshit media cuz its all worthless junk
I actually replayed Darksiders 1 and 2 early last year, just before I played 3, since I wanted to check out their remastered editions for PC, but I mostly regret doing so. Darksiders 1 was okay the first time I played through it back in like 2011/2012 or whatever, but replaying it turned out to be pretty dull for the most part and basically just ended up being a chore. Darksiders 2 was even more of a chore to replay and while I don't recall thinking of it as being that bad the first time I finished it, the act of replaying it really showed it as being pretty terrible and shallow. The DLC was for D2 was sort of OK though, but it was somewhat new for me, since I never checked out any of its DLC until replaying it. When I got to Darksiders 3 I expected the worst, but all in all it actually wasn't too bad. Yes, it's just a weak Souls knock-off with a couple gimmicks, but it wasn't super horrendous or anything. Maybe that speaks to my own expectations, since going in I expected it to be an unmitigated train wreck, but it has some decent level design and some decent boss fights and does the whole "pseduo-Souls" thing fairly well. The only thing that really annoyed me about it was the strong emphasis on dodging combined with wonky timing on enemy attacks/bad hitboxes on your character and the low FOV on the third person camera. Out of all of them, Darksiders 2 is definitely the worst of the series and has the most dull/generic gameplay and is basically a dreary snooze fest from start to finish (although even replaying Darksiders 1 was sort of like this for me as well, frankly).
I was in the middle of playing Automata, but stopped since I decided I wanted to go back and replay Nier first before going any further. I started an emulated playthrough of the english patched Replicant version a little while back, but dropped it after I got bored. Can't imagine I'll return to Automata until I finish replaying Nier because OCD.>>49387
Mods are only half the problem. I don't have the wherewithal for getting invested in an 80+ hour experience like either Morrowind or New Vegas. I wish I did, but I don't. That's also why I haven't played either Witcher 2 or 3, since they possess the same sort of problem for me. 80+ hour games just feel too overwhelming for me nowadays.>>49388
I see. In that case, I have nothing to add, since there are no games that come to mind at this moment which fit that description for me. The PS1 Syphon Filter trilogy maybe, but I just played/emulated those games not too long ago. Goldeneye or Perfect Dark would be a couple others, I guess. As in games I started in childhood, but never finished.
u learnted new word i see
? is it money? just torrent
Siphon filter would be a good example. They're games which most people have forgotten and are things you would personally have a reason to want to finish. Shit like Fallout, Witcher and Nier are discussed in every damn thread and it's worthless noise. Bucket lists aren't missing out on playing the latest releases, they're something you deep down really want to do but haven't set about doing it yet.
>>49386>Nier Automata its a masterpiece
I've seen like 10 minutes letsplay of a dumb slasher made for tumblr porn. What did i miss?
I started Duke3D after reading this thread. I never went past the first stage Hollywood Holocaust before.
Damn, this game is amazing and difficult so far.
>OST from certified brands
>unique weapons each worth switching over
>fucking mouse support in a dos game!
>secrets, multiple solutions
Some things I picked up in just the half an hour I played now. You can never make a game like this now. Not in this PC culture bullshit.
Plenty of times you play a game at a friend's house and never get a copy of your own. Or you start a game, something happens to distract you and you never get back to it. When you feel like playing games something else comes to mind first or you have something new and shiny to play. Unless you're using a guide most puzzle adventure games like point and clicks or Dizzy games will leave you stuck for a while and need to be put back and returned to later.>>49410
Duke's a good game but you're a faggot for wanting to speedrun it. Duke has a lot of expansions, some straight up porn expansions released in a box too. The other build engine games aren't as good (poor difficulty balancing mostly) but worth checking out. Make sure you're running it in Eduke since it's a good source port and polishes up the game with modern PC options while not effecting the gameplay in any major ways.
Try Duke forever as well. It's no where near Duke 3D but none of the Duke games are. Duke has one of the worst game line ups ever made and Forever isn't even close to the bottom.
The art style is a bit unfortunate, but I think but it has a very interesting story (there is a big shift many hours in), and the way that the gameplay cohesively combines different game types was refreshing and unique to me
I've remembered some more. Herc's Adventures was another game that I played only briefly as a kid at the house of one of my brother's friends when I tagged along with him one day and I've been somewhat keen lately on emulating and possibly finishing it. Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask are two others, since they came as a bonus Zelda compilation disc with my copy of Wind Waker for the Gamecube, but I never played them for very long, since I couldn't get over their horrendous N64, early 3D graphics. Heroes of Might and Magic 3, and The Curse of Monkey Island are two other games that I only ever dabbled with as a kid when tagging along with my brother.
And Tomba!, that's another one as well. I remember only playing the first few parts of that game and never getting very much farther than that. That's another game I might emulate and finish at some point and would qualify as a bucket list type game in this sense.
Been wanting to beat Banjo Kazooie for years. I beat Banjo Tooie, but it wasn't as fun.
BK is one of my childhood favorites and it's super comfy too.
I haven't actually beat that many games so there are actually too many to count. I bought an NES, SNES and PlayStation classic. I am starting with the NES and working my way forward through time. The only game I have beaten so far has been Kirby's Adventure but I'm just getting started. On world 7 in Mario 3, Level 4 of Castlevania and trying to beat the Heat Man stage of Mega Man 2.
The amount that you pay per game makes the Classic Nintendo systems worth the price considering the emulation quality is top notch. The PlayStation Classic is kind of shite but I only paid $50 for it. I wish I could finish Mega Man Legends and Digimon World 3 but I will probably have to wait for a used PS4 when eBay is inevitably flooded with them following the launch of the PS5.
Play the rest of the jak trilogy as I only played the first one.
And play though brave fencer musashi (ps1 game) because I liked the demo but never actually found a copy during the ps2 era of gaming.
I could emulate them now but because of work and steam I just haven't got around to it.
You probably knew this but Jak 2 and 3 are very different from the first one.
I played most of mine and I can tell you I don't even remember most of the games anymore. From all the
>top 100 games you need to play
videos you can find online, most games will not really capture you.
It is so hard to find worthwhile games with so much crap around …
Here is a limited list of things I can wholeheartedly recommend:
>Half Life series
>GTA San Andreas
>GTA Vice City
>Xenoblade for Wii and Xenoblade X WiiU
>Metal Gear Solid 5
>Metal Gear Solid for PSP the one where you are managing your own army
and probably a few more I forgot right now
I think most people are wasting their time trying to play and enjoy whatever youtubers or game magazines are recommending them. Just play a game for 2 hours and if you enjoyed it, keep playing. Otherwise just forget about it and move on, no matter how hyped it is.
However, there are still a few ones I want to try out:
>Final Fantasy for PSP Type 0
>Shin Megami Tensei 3
>Shin Megami Tensei 4 Apocalypse
The games I originally wanted to play until I saw they look shitty:
>Yakuza 6 (playing babysitter? are you nuts?)
>Final Fantasy 15 (being Sasuke Uchiha of a JPop Boyband)
>>51223>fuking chinese gacha game>a bucket list game
Yeah fuck off. It's not even out yet.
Half Life 2 - never played it for whatever reason, even though i have played countless sourcemods as well as the original half life, blue shift, and opposing force.
Sleeping Dogs - not as fun as i thought it would be but would like to finish it someday.
Omikron: The Nomad Soul - for reasons that baffle me i just stopped playing this one day and never bothered to finish it. >>51229
This one too. I found it frustrating at times but still rewarding. I guess it didnt help much that i never played a souls game before picking this up.
>>51233>I guess it didnt help much that i never played a souls game before picking this up
I think that would've helped me, since in latter games you get used to QoL stuff that didn't exist in the first game.
Demon's souls is literally the first souls game. You shouldn't be expecting to bring experience into it. If anything experience will spoil it because later games have so many more options you're likely going to miss your favourite weapon.
I have succeeded in crossing a few games off of my list. I have managed to beat several 2D Mario games (World being my favorite), a Mega Man game, a Castlevania, a Kirby game, Donkey Kong Country, Star Fox on its lowest difficulty setting and others this year. Despite being 29, there are many classic games I have never beat. I have never beat a Zelda game, nor any Contra or Metroid. I have never beat a Touhou game on normal mode. I have never beat a Souls game.>>49410
This is a game I grew up playing. I actually think it's kind of a scary game. Maybe it's the level hazards like crushing ceilings, explosions, earthquakes, underwater sections etc. It just puts me on edge whereas I find Doom to be a relaxing experience.
Octobrains are scary, there's no way around that.
Same here, I don't wanna play Witcher 3 before 1 and 2, and tried 1 but didn't like the combat.
don't bother, it's not worth it
I would suggest to jump straight into 3. Or at least ignore the 2 (it's not even open world)
By FAR the .Hack Series. When I last played it, I beat Infection, was halfway through the 2nd disc, and got the 3rd disc. At that point, life did shit to me, so I dropped it. I finally got to a point in my life where I was able to revisit it, and finished the 1st and 2nd discs, was about to start the 3rd, and was thinking, "Alright, let's look up how much the 4th disc cos–" and it's anywhere from $300 to $500 for .Hack Quarantine for the PS2. It just feels like a punch in the gut. I had sort of tied up this series with this riding emotion of "Alright! I'm getting things back together again. Maybe life isn't so bad!" for a few months only to get this sucker punch.
Pokemon Silver. I have the cartridge, but the battery inside the cartridge went out and I've been too scared to figure out how to fix it at the risk of destroying it.
Skies of Arcadia. I'm on the fence, because the random encounter rate is kind of a slog.
Shadow the Hedgehog. Because I find it so over the top it's funny, but then…you actually have to play it…soooo…
Evoland 1+2. I saw a little bit of a Let's Play of it about five years ago now, and it looks super fun.
Riven. I finally beat Myst a few years ago and got really interested in the lore and it's been in the back of my mind to play.
get .hack GU Last Recode it has all the games in 1 package and is usually 80% off on sales during holidays
Thanks, but the .Hack//GU series is different from the OG .Hack IMOQ series.
it has all the 4 games as well on it Infection, Mutation, Outbreak, and Quarantine
Where do you see that? According to the wiki I've seen:https://dothack.fandom.com/wiki/Last_Recode>The remaster compiles elements from all three .hack//G.U. games: .hack//G.U. Vol. 1//Rebirth (再誕 Saitan, lit. "Resurrection"), .hack//G.U. Vol. 2//Reminisce (君思う声 Kimi Omou Koe, lit. "The Voice that Thinks of You") and .hack//G.U. Vol. 3//Redemption
Three is great and the difficulty level is perfect.
Four is very good too, but way too easy.
Five has everything but the kitchen sink, but is fairly boring charachter wise, or rather because of their lack of development, and fighting is just way too easy even on hardest difficulty level.
But 2 and Zero really have the best antagonists' and music in the series, and the latter is probably the best game in the series.
I did play Zero (forgot to mention it) and it was fantastic, honestly I doubt any of the other games could surpass it. At some point I should try the Kiwami games too. I've seen 7 and it kinda plays like an JRPG? What's up with that?
Remade of the first game is basically like standalone Zero expansion pack: it plays exactly the same, except for not buying the skills with money.
So if you liked Zero, you will like it too, unless the 80's was your favorite gimmick. And it is challenging on hard and very hard, especially the Jingu fight (second to last boss).
It's too bad you have to unlock very hard by completing the game first. Who's going to bother replaying right after their first playthrough? The games don't exactly have a lot of replay value.
>>52731>I've seen 7 and it kinda plays like an JRPG? What's up with that?
7 is pretty good IMO despite the gameplay being so different.
The battle system is kind of just passable. I don't know what to compare the combat system to since I don't play many different JRPGs. There's a job system kind of like Dragon Quest, enemies have weaknesses, and there are some QTE-like events on skills and guards that increase/decrease damage if you succeed. Everyone moves around freely on the field during battle but you can't really control how and where they move, they'll just automatically approach enemies when you choose to attack. This makes setting up AOE skills kind of a pain in the ass since you have to just wait and pray that enemies will cluster together and that your character aims correctly.
The whole combat system is interesting enough at first - jobs seem neat, some of the skills are pretty funny, and you get summons for different characters you meet in substories - but it gets kind of boring later on, because it's not very well and you'll probably just end up using the strongest job and spamming the strongest skills for later encounters.
Everything else is great though. I think the story was even better than 0 but that'll probably depend on your personal preference. The main character is more of an underdog compared to Kiryu and has a lot more emotion (his Japanese VA is the same guy who voiced Nishiki). The party members you get are pretty cool, especially the later ones. The new city is great and a nice change of pace from Kamurocho.
I'd highly recommend it, maybe wait until a sale or for a crack if you're unsure about the combat. It's definitely less satisfying than the beat-em-up format but it didn't drag down the experience too much for me.
You should also try out Judgement once the Stadia exclusivity bullshit ends and it inevitably gets a PC release.
Ok it actually sounds pretty cool, I imagine by the time you finish the 6th game Kamurocho just feels like more of the same. I was planning on playing it anyway but it's nice to hear it's good despite the changes.>You should also try out Judgement once the Stadia exclusivity bullshit ends and it inevitably gets a PC release
You know I saw a video of Judgement and thought it was a Yakuza rip off. What an idiot…
I hope it does come out and it doesn't take over 10 years like with 3. But considering every Yakuza game is now on pc, it wouldn't surprise me.
Finally beat a Metroid game (Super Metroid). It's the only game I can think of that actually gave me chills when I finished it. Didn't use a guide.
Congratulations! I hope to finally get around to playing it, some day.
It's been over a year now. I got really far into LOZ:WW but lost interest because of the 100% completion requirements. You gotta beat the game twice to get everything. That means all hearts and the typical LOZ crap. I never bothered with LOZ:TP. I went halfway into Luigi's Mansion 1 and got hella pissed at the capturing ghosts mechanic and having to do all the bosses in one swoop for the maximum rewards for the A/S rank house (can't remember). I got so angry at the body builder because I tried so many times to get him and I failed each time. Also you can go through his door but it lights up the room so you gotta collect him anyways.
I went all the way into the final mission for GTA 4 but never completed it. Now I have no idea how to even trigger the mission or if I broke the game. I never did Kirby's yarn and I forgot about it. I'll get to it eventually I guess. I never did GTA 5 or Sonic Colors. By the time I made this post I was probably working on Sonic Heroes and the 100% completion is insane. A+ for all courses on all teams and I did some courses. Some are 7+ minutes long. You have to not get hit, get the rings, and be on time. It's crazy I won't see the ending. I tried Wario Land SHAKE IT! and I hated it. Slowest game of all time. I quit out of disgust. I was doing Glover but my save file got overwritten. I still have the cartridge and can just emulate it if possible. I haven't touched DarkSiders 1 in a long while and never attempted 2.
I'm now doing OSRS and I'm having fun. I have other game sequels I can play too. Also I still have Oblivion and Skyrim's DLC to beat. Also I might just do Skyrim on one save like all my other saves because of tradition.
wanna play through the Fallout franchise but I am a bit put off by the first 2 games, not used to the old isometric stuff
Those are the only good fallout games, though
You'd get used to it eventually. I know I did
Isometric angle is not the problem, but the fugly inventory.
Love F2, just like UO, but hate their inventory system.
you get used to it.
No I won't.
I've played through Fallout 2 three times with the last offical patch and maybe dozen times with Killap's patch and thousands of hours of UO, and disliked the unorthodox inventory system from the beginning and still do.
Same here, waiting for the crack, sadly it could take months with denuvo
>>53280>the Rondo of Blood PSP remake was kicking my ass and supposedly that's one of the easiest of the classic-style titles
A good point of entry for the classic games is Super Castlevania IV on SNES, it's like a soft remake of CV1, but it's different enough, the problem with this game is that it has a few mechanics that make the game easier and they aren't implemented in other titles. Classic cv can be a bit tough at first but once you get the hang of it you'll be fine. Oh and you might consider playing the pc-engine version of rondo, I think it's far superior (I think you can unlock it on the psp too).
The PSP remake is harder than the original - and complete garbage to begin with those ugly animations and gringeworthy rock remixes of the original songs.
Rondo is very easy indeed, easier than the sequel (after few level ups). It is also very enternaining on first two playthrus (because of two different paths and extra character).>>53281
It's hardly a remake. Almost all the levels are straight as arrow, with very little variation. The game is dull and uninspired and in my opinion Dracula XX - especially if you didn't know it was supposed to be straight port of the PCE Rondo - is much better game.
Sharp X68K port or rather remake of the Famicom Akumajo Dracula is probably hardest of the classic titles and easily best after Akumajo Densetsu.
It was ported to PSX as 'Castlevania Chronicle Akumajo Dracula', which also includes gay hair -mode, so it is easily playable.
It also has ever harder loops upto level screen 99, just like original Fami one and Densetsu.
Also there is entire level dedicated for MODE7. Of course, same goes for most early Nintendo first party titles.
>>53283>It's hardly a remake
I mean it's same character, same plot, some bosses (with a few new ones) some of the levels are similar. Even the guy who made it say it's kind of a remake, it's still its own thing. Mode seven can be annoying you're right, but I still think it's better than Dracula X. I did play DX after Rondo, though, and only once in one sitting, so there's that.>It was ported to PSX as 'Castlevania Chronicle Akumajo Dracula'
Damn I had completely forgotten about that one, it was pretty good too, pretty tough.
How do you rate Bloodlines?
The Megadrive one? It is pretty good and different, but also has somewhat techdemo-feel to it (that water level in your post), like those Mode7 sections in 4.
Truth is though I haven't played it in 20 years or so and the NTSC-J copy is going for many monies (which is true for Megadrive games in general) and I don't like emulation.
