This is fucking rough to watch now that the veil is broken. I used to let these people influence my young minds opinion about things. Have you guys ever gone back to see how horrible some of these "game journalists" are. Not just g4, but it seems like all the old magazines were just full of shit. Even Nintendo power was guilty of being shit on a few occasions. Was this really better than us(actual gamers) arguing about what's good amongst ourselves?

What did they mean by this? Was this in the original game?

Should I take the savestate blue pill? It helps you save time and experience more games but it's literally a cheat, an external modification that the developers never intended to be part of the game

Faux Open World

What are some games with faux open world/ fake open world?
Basically, a large hub with limited exploration to hide the feeling of linear progression.

OOT is the first game that comes to mind.

How does it feel to be a Variable Geo fan?

Genuine vidya history question.

Is Ninja Gaiden the last major 3rd Party franchise from the NES to not be in Smash?

"Major" in the same sense as Castlevania, Megaman & Metal Gear, at least. Iconic NES games that became long-running series. Am I forgetting some others in that ballpark, or after Ryu is it just fossils like Battletoads?

What about on Super NES?

How did the "T-the ps2 was only successful because it was a cheap dvd player!!!" meme start? Was it angry cubies trying to downplay the PS2's success?

Alright I see /vr/os making lots of threads whining about how bad emulation for this or that console is, but seems like they usually have no idea what they're talking about. What is considered "bad" here? Is this just turbo autists raging over shitty idiosyncrasies of the limited console hardware carrying over? Or are there serious glitches, missing features, etc.? How well can I emulate games for the following systems on a really good PC?
>PS1, 2, 3
>Xbox and 360
>N64 and Gamecube

>you can't play the game like that, it's inauthentic!!
Why are so many retro gaming fans like this? Do they actually enjoy the GAMES themselves and want to play them the best way possible, or is it just coomlectors and nostalgic boomers who don't actually care about the games, but instead only want to recreate the exact experience they had playing the game as a kid?

Even completely uncontroversial things like removing slowdown, removing sprite flicker, enabling autofire, using a different input device, or even just emulation in general makes people freak out that muh authenticity and how that's not the "real" way to play the game. And God forbid you use save states or anything like that and people will lose their mind.
