  1. Mobile gaming - do you do it?

    i don't do mobile games because I need physical buttons to enjoy my games. I tried finding some strategy games that wouldn't benefit from physical buttons but they all looked kinda boring.
  2. PC's must be part of the "problem". I for one despise consoles now even though I spent so much time enjoying them growing up. Now I see them as a hindrance to advancing video games.
  3. are there too many sucky modern retro games?

    Actually I can enjoy the textures of 1st party PS1 games or 3d games later in the systems life, but I gotta have more polygons. Mitten hands are too annoying for me.
  4. video game vs movie watching hobby. which one is best?

    I much prefer video games to movies.
  5. are there too many sucky modern retro games?

    I agree that the 32-bit console style 3d graphics are too ugly but I think I'd enjoy retro 3d graphics in the style of World of Warcraft. I never played that game but it's an example of the kind of 3d graphics that I think are good enough to enjoy in a retro sense. I remember when I first played Twisted Metal on PS1, maybe my first PS1 game experience, and I was like wow cool graphics. But nowadays it is beyond ugly. It's the same thing with Super Mario 64.
  6. I've seen a lot of retro-style games on Steam but most of them are too retro. I want 16/32-bit style or SVGA graphics, but most of them are NES style or EGA PC graphics style and it's too ugly for me. Some of the 16-bit style ones still look a bit lazy with the artistic level of detail or graphics that repeat too much. Terrian Saga and Super Cyborg are among the only few that've stood out to me. I wanted to like Oniken and Odallus but I don't enjoy NES graphics unless it's an actual NES game. How about you all, what kind of retro graphics style do you want?
  7. which one do you most want to do if you can only choose 1?
  8. Goodbye, and Thanks

    well, why did you decide to quit VG's?
  9. ?! how many hours did you play to get that good?
  10. Well that strategy could backfire if people see low sales of the newest nintendo console after the Wii U's failure, they might be expecting switch to fail and by limiting supply they could be making a really dumb marketing decision. Nintendo needs to get high sales ASAP and demonstrate the switch to be a success, but I could be overestimating the average gamer's wisdom.
  11. I didn't have enough quarters to beat any game so all the games were my go-to games. I wanted to try a bit of everything!
  12. reminds me of the shortage for the Wii U's gamecube-to-wii U controller adapter for super smash brothers. Nintendo is just baffling but they will get their comeuppance soon...
  13. te72, you're supposed to enjoy games because of their quality, not because of hype or how newly released they are.
  14. Why are you not a more agreeable person kitsunebi
  15. I still believe a single console manufacturer competing only with PC would be the best situation for gamers. I believe the console maker would still make an effort to win customers from the PC but if they stagnated and became shitty then people would have no choice but to buy a PC which is my utopian dream world that I will fight like a revolutionary for on behalf of the PC Master Race... And I don't think you would need to do much upgrading te72 if any, because one thing many PC gamers complained a lot about during the PS3 era is how the consoles were holding back PC graphics because of the games that were designed for them and then ported to PC. As your frame rates lowered you could keep reducing your settings every couple of years until towards the end of the PS3's life and then your PC graphics would end up being PS3 quality anyway. Just my not-so-informed opinion.
