Fucking LOVE that game. It's like 10 years later and I'm still pissed off about the Gameboy Color port not having the original music.

Every few years I get a sudden urge to play through Final Fantasy 1.  I'm playing through it again now.  The PS1 remake on the Origins collection makes it much less painful, heh.

Dragon Warrior 3 is also old school goodness, but much more of a time commitment.

Adventure Island series (NES) - A very hard series of platformers. Playing the original is akin to trying to raise your blood pressure, but it's a lot of fun.


Holy shit, I loved AI 1. When I was little, I spent weeks at a time with my Nintendo on continuously, trying to beat that game. My dad and I would come home every night and try to knock out a level or two. Never got all the way through, though, as the Nintendo would eventually crap the bed and reset itself.

I bought an emulator disc for the Dreamcast about five or six years ago, and when I saw AI on there, I immediately rolled up my sleeves and got back to work. Unfortunately, I got so disgusted at one point, I broke the controller. I still haven't beaten the game.

8-3 is the bane of my existence. I think every level in world 8 is really hard (except 8-4, strangely enough), but goddamn, the end of 8-3.. better save state when you get to part 4, that's all I'll say.

Depending on how old "retro" is considered, but I've been playing through Black Isle's Icewind Dale games.I never got around to the first, and only partially through the second.

I like the switch to 3rd Ed D&D rules on IWD2, but it's botched, so most armors above Studded Leather suck.

Good Lord, Revenge of Shinobi is such a filthy, filthy whore of a game.  Even save-stating after every level doesn't make it the least bit easy.

However, now I'm on like the last stage and it's this ridiculous maze-thing.  Shinobi 3 is like 1000 times more fun than this. =P

I usually play through Final Fantasy 1 a few times a year. Lately, I've been playing Super Tecmo Bowl on my phone's NES emulator. With save states, it's the perfect game to play when I'm standing in line for five minutes or whatever.

I'm playing Super Metroid right now. I never had the chance to play any Metroid game when I was a kid, so I snatched it up when it hit the Virtual Console whenever Metroid Prime 3 came out. Unfortunately, I stopped playing it for a few days and got lost, so this is my most recent restart. Maybe this time.

I wanted to start off with a simple question. If you were me, and wanted to go old school, of all the systems from the older generations of consoles what would you get?

They all have their niches, but really, when looking at the games lineup, and how wide a selection of games are available, it comes down to either the SNES or the N64.

I mean, with the SNES, you got Super Mario All-Stars, the original Mario Kart and Starfox and more.

But the N64 brought it up a level with those titles in 64 bit, and also fun fun games like WCW/nWo revenge, WWF No Mercy and more.

So who would you go with? Maybe neither? Maybe I should focus on the Turbo Grafix 16?

If you're buying the console outright, N64 is the way to go mostly because it's the one that's the biggest pain in the ass to emulate for free on PC (not to mention working out how to use a regular controller or *gasp* the keyboard to control any games you do manage to run).

SNES is the best of the old school.  Playing N64 games these days is like gaming with glaucoma.

Plus, nearly every quality N64 release has either been ported, given a quality re-release, or otherwise is much better to play on another system. Also, for folks who have a Wii, the games look better and often control better on Virtual Console.

SNES is the pinacle of old school gaming.

But I have such a soft spot for the Mega Drive. Of all the retro consoles I have, I own the most games for it.

The N64 was my favorite.  The SNES was probably the best, and the original NES got me really into games after the Atari slightly wooed me.  But the N64, bought with the cash I got from family and friends on my 13th birthday in July 1997, was the first that I had a decent amount of games for. 

I bought Mario, of course, and then Star Fox the next day (got more money) and GoldenEye a month or so later.  That was my first FPS ever.  I hadn't seen the movie and I can't remember why I bought it, but it was a great decision.

I had trouble choosing between the N64 and PlayStation.  I ended up buying a PS1 the next year and didn't really like it.  I returned it.  I bought another PS1 when WCW Thunder came out, but not even the greatness of Thunder could keep me hooked.  I missed out on a lot of great games.

The NES and SNES, I loved, but only had 8 games for each.  I bough a Genesis 3 but never had many games for it.  I own Sonic's Genesis Collection now.

Oh, I did have a Game Gear and Game Boy!

SNES was definitely my favourite of the old school crop. Though I had more NES games, I had much more fun with the SNES.

I was always more of a fan of the SNES then the N64. Probably because it was the last Nintendo controller that I didn't mind playing with.

Oh and when it was apparent that the Saturn was a failure in the US and Sega was doing shit like giving you three games for free with the system my dad almost bought one because he wanted to play Daytona USA. Unfortunantly for me reason prevailed and he didn't waste his money.

re: Saturn

Supposedly Panzer Dragoon Saga is really good too, but I wouldn't know, because there was only like 5 English copies made.

However, there were plenty of good Japanese games for it that didn't require any knowledge of Japanese:
i.e.:
Keio Yugekitai
Vampire Savior (Darkstalkers 3)
X-Men vs. Street Fighter
Shin Shinobi Den (available as Shinobi Legions here, but I have the Japanese version, myself).

I also have several other Japanese versions of US-available games--Fighters' Megamix, Sega Rally, Virtua Cop--mainly because a) they were way cheaper than the US versions online, b) much less of a pain in the ass to store because of standard jewel cases.

Quote
Bugz
Clockwork Knights

Bug! and Clockwork Knight, actually.  I didn't think either were particularly good even at the time, though.  I'd imagine most early adopters were thinking "Where TF is Sonic?!" while being blissfully unaware of Sonic X-treme's development hell and Yuji Naka being a prima donna.

We had one of those.  My brother frequently fell for Sega's marketing campaigns, such as this one claiming that it would somehow improve your Genesis games by laying down a new layer of graphics over the original one or some shit.  I think we bought a grand total of three 32X games: two utterly forgettable and shitty things that I can't even remember, like one outer-space shooter and one racing game, something along those lines.  

The only one I specifically remember was Doom, and that was a terribly shitty port.  As the AVGN's video on the subject demonstrated, the music was even inferior to the SNES version.  The graphics were better (how could they not be), but they still missed a lot of lighting effects and such which didn't make the jump from the computer.  Also, we only got half the frigging game; there were only fifteen levels.  They didn't bother changing hardly anything around, just gave us the first world and half of the second one and then slapped on a crappy new "last" level.  They didn't even bother using the boss enemies anywhere else, no Cyberdemons or Spider Masterminds anywhere.  And that was the best game I ever saw for the 32X.  Monumental pile o' shite, that was.

Among the most interesting titles on the 32x:

Knuckles Chaotix: It's Knuckles and more shitty friends teaming up, handcuffed together with rings that have like a magical rubber-band between them.  However, they gimped Knuckles' abilities to force you into using it more (his spin dash is garbage, as is all the other characters').  However, your partner is picked from an iron claw machine, and you can sometimes be stuck with a "Mechanix"--Heavy or Bomb.  These are actually "punishment" characters who slow you down and basically suck hard.  Terrible execution, guys. 

  Instead of Chaos Emeralds you collect...giant Chaos Rings (which look like giant Froot Loops or something).  The way you played the levels (one act at a time, choosing them randomly from a machine) was a nice concept, but the bonus stages to get the Rings were terrible--it would be common to fall through the floor even if you landed on solid parts of the space (especially if you hit a bumper).  The game is clearly unfinished; it has good music and graphics, but the stages are pretty damn empty, and the rubber-band mechanics mostly mesh pretty poorly with the stages.  The best plan of attack is to pick up your partner and carry his ass to the end of the stage.  Supposedly this is what Sonic Crackers turned into (since KC was originally rumored as Sonic Chaotic, and the play mechanics and some music are found in them, they're pretty good theories).

Game could have been something special (it is made up heavily of Sonic CD staff), but Sega rushed it out ahead of time.  Game was nigh-impossible to find at launch, too.

Metal Head was kind of cool for what it was (you control a mech, walk around and blow up baddies)--but the weapon variety was pretty weak and level designs were pretty pedestrian. 

NBA Jam and WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game would probably have to be among the best two games for the system.  Pity they're neither exclusive nor the best versions of the game.

It had some decent arcade ports--T-Mek, Star Wars Arcade, Space Harrier--but nothing really screaming killer app on any of those fronts (and SH was old as hell by even that point anyway).

Doom was okay for what it was--it came out way before the SNES version, incidentally (somewhere between 1-2 years).  Plus, a gaming PC that could run a top-rate Doom was very expensive, far above any of the consoles.  32X Doom was better than the Saturn and 3DO versions by far.

It had a good version of Virtua Racing.  You know, if you cared about Virtua Racing.  Also, while very late, it had a great version of Virtua Fighter.  Again, if you cared about Virtua Fighter.

The majority of 32x titles were like the Sega CD--it was the Genesis version with new features, and that's it.  Didn't even have better music most of the time.  So it often would result in games like Primal Rage with slightly more color, a slightly better looking WM the Arcade Game, a slighly more visually impressive MK2, etc.  The rare ports that really added much at all were the scaling in NBA Jam TE and the much-improved graphics in Virtua Racing.

Supposedly Spiderman Web of Fire was good, but I have never played it nor found a detailed review. I think retail copies are pretty much a myth.  I've never, ever seen a real cartridge for it.

As far as Saturn went, I pretty much just had sports games (World Series Baseball, NFL QB club, NHL "insert year"), Mortal Kombat II, and Virtua Fighter. Even with the failures of Saturn though, I never crossed over to Playstation. The only Sony system that I own is a PSP. Never owned a Genesis either, getting back to Sega games.

My best friend had a Saturn, the only thing I remember about it is playing Virtua Fighter 2 non-stop.  I think he had one of the Street Fighter Alphas on there also...2 maybe?

Alpha 1 and 2 came out on Saturn, but 3 was only available in Japan (as Zero 3).

I wanted a Saturn when they had that "three free games" deal.  My mom wouldn't get me an N64 that year, which I really wanted, because "it doesn't come with a game."  So I brought this proposal to her and she still turned it down.  Then I wanted Super Mario RPG but she refused to pay the exhorbitant cost of it, us being pretty damn poor at the time, so you know what I got for Christmas '96?  NBA Hang Time.  Bah.

Hey, that was one of my gifts, too.  I think the SNES version played better than the N64 version, even though the N64 version had WHOAMG awesome (for 1996) facial graphics.

I had both a Sega CD and 32X.  The one game I did like for the 32X was Moto X (IIRC that's what it was called).  Very basic, typical 3D motocross game of the era.

Either Mortal Kombat or NBA Jam I have a copy of for all three genesis, 32x, and sega CD. I forget which one it is. Don't ask me why, I own all three of those systems so obviously I'm weird.

Which Genesis and Sega CD?

There's 2 different Genesis models (that work with 32x, anyway) and 2 different Sega CD models.  There's the Genesis 1 with the audio jack on it and the smaller Genesis 2.  With Sega CD there's the tray loader and then there's the side car.  There's like 4 possible combinations!  Gotta catch 'em all!  Plus, while it isn't "officially" compatible, the CDX actually works with the 32x, too.  Throw in the X'Eye/Wondermega (a JVC-made Sega CD and Genesis in one unit) and the Genesis 3, and there's a lot of different systems that played Genesis games.

I think there may be barely more RPGs on Genesis than there are types of Sega systems.

EDIT:  Oh, and the Nomad.

Yeesh.  There has to be more systems than there are *good* RPGs, at least.
