One of the greatest games on NES and of all time. It tests pure skill and reaction, practically turns you into a real ninja by the time youre done. While it can be annoying sometimes but over all it feels more like you need skill to get by rather than feeling irked (like Megaman quite a bit). The timing, the intensity, its great. Also, dem cutscenes.

weird game theories.

weird game theories. 30 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
can we have one of these? To start off, what if Mario 3 is actually a play. What would the implications be? Well, it would be an eight-act play. Since there is no form of in-story (let's exclude manuals here) explaining Mario's motivation, we have to assume that the plot does not really come in to action until the first castle, where you learn that an alien force has overtaken grass land. Remember, before this Mario has no way of knowing what his mission his - a letter from the princess is not recieved before after the first world is completed. No, the interesting point here is that the letters you recieve from the Princess is out of order. The letter that tells you to look for a magic whistle does not reach you until beating the sixth world. What could this mean. Well, if we look at Mario 3 as a stage play, it means that you need a 'second viewing' or translating it into the game, a second play through. However there are two points breaking this apart. A play is supposed to be the same each time you watch it, right. Like a movie, you can catch more details and subtle hints you didn't realize the first time. So where does this leave us with the magic flutes and the fact that restarting the game after beating it gives you 28 p-wings. Well, what if Mario 3 is not an actual stage play, but a stage play Bowser has set up. What if Mario 3 is actually a twisted form of theatricality that he has constructed? Getting to know Bowsers true motivation isn't something we are granted with until Sunshine, where Bowser wants a mom for Bowser Jr. So we can only speculate why he would've kidnapped the Princess and set up stages like he has done. But it's something to think about.

Can someone help me out? I am looking for a specific version of Tetris. I think it might have come as a default game on an apple pc with windows 95 or maybe 98. I cant seem to find any pictures of it.. The only distinct things about it i remember are that it had a max of 10 levels, increasing drop speed as you progress through the levels. I think level 7 had like a pinkish/black background and level 9 or 10 had a rainbow type background. Any help is appreciated!

Why is ghosts 'n goblins... 52 posts and 5 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Why is ghosts 'n goblins considered a classic? It's one of the worst designed games on the nes, it's more frustrating than fun, it has only one music track playing for the majority of the game, it has no continues or password system and it's full of randomized bullcrap enemy encounters. Yet it's in the top 200 best games on the NES and we still play it today. I still feel drawn to this game from time to time. Is it just the music? Is it the charm of the main character? Is it because we love the arcade version? What do you think? Feel free to disagree and leave your opinion.

Someone made a topic (which is still floating around) about saving in NES games and if grandpas like us 20-and-30-somethings were expected to beat games like SMB3 in one sitting. Anyway, pic related happened and I think this really summarizes the divide between retro/modern games as well as retro/modern gamers. It's pretty hard to deny that modern games have become a more cohesive piece, something that demands steady progression to be able to fully enjoy the content of the game. That's not to say that retro games are disjointed, but instead of rewards based on story and character development, later game content would instead test the skills learned from playing the first few levels over and over. Does anyone else agree with me here? Also, where did we first start to see this kind of game emerge? Was it FMV games, point-and-clicks, or just a steady progression? Since the retro date is kind of arbitrary, what qualities does a game need to have to be considered "retro" in flavor?

So /vr/, here's what I don't understand about Radiant Silvergun While you're "fighting" the Stone-Like in Stage 1 (in 100,000 BC) in Story Mode, who are the voices you hear? Are they the people you knew back on Earth before the Stone-Like wiped out humanity? Is it Guy and the captain after they were both killed in battle against the Stone-Like? What are they even telling you? To not give up? shmup general I guess
