PS1 essentials?

No.7984815 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Didn't grow up with a PS1 and I just got one.

What are your top 3 PS1 essentials? Games that you think everyone should play.

I've already played FF7 and SOTN (both are available on PS4)

Also I like JRPGs, so any suggestions there would be great. I plan on playing Chrono cross as soon as I can get my hands on a copy.

Grinding games

No.7984892 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Shmups require grinding but you lose all your progress when you turn them off. And the only reward is a number on the screen goes up...I know this gacha formula worked at arcades,, but at home it feels stupid and unexciting

So I will sat this is a bad sort of grinding, unlike mmos that give cool treasures and multiplayer fun

Artful ways to display your retro hardware

What are some artful ways to tastefully display your retro hardware? It doesn’t need to remain functional, just something that looks nice and is a good conversation starter and point of interest for party guests.

Season 25: Episode 6 (#322) Air Fortress {Famicom / NES} premiered on Thursday, July 22nd.

Season 25: Episode 7 (#323) premieres on Thursday, August 12th. A big staff announcement will be included.
It's unclear if that's intended to be a hint about the challenge in this specific episode, but it seems unlikely.
Editor's Note: If it's a personal announcement, like a marriage or the birth of a child, the game could relate to that.

Games whose fame is completely undeserved

No.7982308 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
This game is total garbage. Nothing more than a movie where you have to press the right inputs at the right timing based on the current scene (a.k.a. guess what works and memorize the inputs, then re-enter them step by step like a trained monkey). Great visuals covering up a fucking awful play. No variation, no flexibility, just "watch the cutscene" and you dump quarters to see the ending. 1CC isn't even a skill or fascination, it's just a film short. Clearly impacted the industry as you got some LD games, some LD systems/system add-ons here and there, and of course it had various clones on other disc-based system, all of which did the same shitty gimmick of "guess the button" as the only basis for their gameplay.

If you think about it mechanically, it's better described as a really shitty rhythm game. Memorize the set of notes, press the queues as indicated, and you win. I say "really shitty rhythm game" as almost any rhythm game would be more captivating. But that can be said for almost any game that actually has gameplay. If not for the cartoon, this bilgewater would be utterly worthless, an insult to include even in the atari 2600 library. Instead, it gets those occasional re-releases on any system (or home video platform) with people nostalgic and foolish enough to bother throwing money at it.

Truly, had this not been the prettiest visuals in the arcade in '83, nobody would have dreamed dumping more than one quarter on it. I can only assume this game stays around to continue preying on the curious and the foolish, on whatever new port they can convince people to buy.

Did you ever dream about a game based on your favorite show/movie which never happened?

When I was 7, I wanted a game based on that Cranberries music video where you run from a spooky ghostly scarecrow chick to the barn. Also pic related, but I guess that's GTA V now
