old video games

am now replaying Resident Evil 4 for like the 10th time now in anticipation for the release of the remake this month and gotta say that they dont make games like this anymore.
Survival horror type game at its finest.

any video games that you have nostalgia for that no new games today can compete with?
Fishy36-40, F
Horror isn't my genre 馃様

But I do get nostalgic with the old school platformers and RPGs

Y'know, the real corny stuff like Donkey Kong, Spyro, Pokemon etc 馃槀

But the newer ones just aren't the same

@Fishy I love playing Spyro on acid lol
Torsten36-40, M
@Fishy going real old games now. Those games were great for sure

@Fishy True.

The medium is new was geat and people said it's like silent hill, I truly liked.

Yoshi island was lovely hehe

Doom I & II with near infinite mod and map variety. You can even have AI generated maps, your own multiplayer servers, total game conversions, etc. Pretty much whatever you want.

All for cheap or free with Free Doom.
Torsten36-40, M
@GeistInTheMachine hard to beat the original Doom games.
Though i guess the mods did just that
GeistInTheMachine31-35, M
@Torsten Because John Carmack and ID Software are awesome and gave out the source code eons ago.
Torsten36-40, M
@GeistInTheMachine that is pretty cool. was not aware of that

Animastars in Dreamcast, it always have special place in my heart since I played it a lot! Even translated all the mechanic in the game so my friends, who don鈥檛 speak Japanese can play it too.

Btw do you play the best version of RE4? Which is the Wii version.

Now try Resident Evil 4 VR.
Torsten36-40, M
@Teirdalin I have never played silent hill before. Is it good?
Teirdalin31-35
@Torsten absolutely, I recommend installing a PlayStation 1 emulator and downloading the ISO off one of the numerous ROM sites.
Torsten36-40, M
@Teirdalin I will have to search that up. I have no clue what any of that is 馃槃
JestAJester31-35, M
Jak 2 and Ratchet n Clank. Never will they get old. Also Mario 64, Super R Type, Donkey Kong Country 2, and Ocarina of Time
GeistInTheMachine31-35, M
@JestAJester Great taste.

Resident Evil 4 was nuts. I loved it. And part 3. Right now, I am playing Kingdom Come Deliverance, and it is pretty addictive
Torsten36-40, M
@TheLordOfHell can easily happen, especially when games just keep getting added to it. its a never ending backlog
TheLordOfHell41-45
@Torsten Yes definitely. How can we pass up so many good deals?
Torsten36-40, M
@TheLordOfHell exactly haha

I have a lot for the first Black ops game especially the zombie mode before they made it insultingly easy
AdaXI41-45, T

zombie games/tv shows/movies have been done to death (no pun intended). It's come to the point that everything has been tried,, there is no originality, everything is just a remake/mashup of something else. Beyond me why some people are still interested in them... 馃

I just wish Nintendo would stop dicking around when it comes to the Switch. I wanna try out Banjo Tooie and Conker's bad fur day, I refuse to buy an N64
GeistInTheMachine31-35, M
@Rolexeo Nintendo is the king of dicking around.

I love N64. When I was a collector I had several. These days I have a Min/Max mindset, though. So yeah, I get you.

Shouldn't have to buy a whole console for a few games.

And It shouldn't be so annoying to play old games but Nintendo gets off finacially from blueballing us, lmfao.

Time to go back to a handheld computer, it seems.

I love the Switch. But you now how Nintendo is.
Rolexeo26-30, M
@GeistInTheMachine I've heard that about them. I just dread them releasing a new console cause it'll be the same thing all over again, port the same 2D Mario games they always do and give us no new re-releases. Also, the yearly subscription fee is a joke lol
GeistInTheMachine31-35, M
@Rolexeo Absolutely man. The prices were nuts and this is after they were cut.

May be better to invest in GPD Wins for emulating and the like.

Nintendo Consoles should be seen as more of a first party thing by consumers, way I see it.

They can really get you in the wallet with the nostalgia.

Like Disney, they make money capitalizing on childhood. Lmao. We eat that up, though. It's gotten exhausting.

Little old for video games don鈥檛 you think
GeistInTheMachine31-35, M
@Funlov Never too old to have fun until you're dead.

Not all games are made for kids. Just like not all TV is kids cartoons.

And at the end of the day, life is short. Blink and you'll miss it.

How many people on their death bed wish they had enjoyed themselves more?

Lol. We are here and we take it for granted, as hard as it is.
FunlovM
@GeistInTheMachine I just don鈥檛 play games is all not looking down on it just way to much other things for me to do
GeistInTheMachine31-35, M
@Funlov Fair enough, friend.
