So, since the /vr/ crowd should be more or less the oldest crowd on 4chan, I assume a bunch of you guys have already produced offspring. Have you introduced your kids to retro gaming? Don't lie, I know everybody here has at one point had the idea to replay childhood favorites with their own future kids for some quality dad/son moments. So now that some of you must be fathers (or mothers?), did that work out?

How come we're not having Heretic/Hexen threads anymore? I've been meaning to finish Hexen 2 and with the Hammer of Thryrion source port installed the game stops looking so dull, which was probably my biggest gripe with it before, and the OpenGL enhancements that come with it as well as numerous bug fixes really add a lot of flavor and breathe a new life into Hexen 2, while still keeping in tone with the original game. With HoT I could also finally get the music to work by converting the audio tracks on the CD into mp3 files. Great stuff.

Go back in time and tell Sega that this is one fucked-up controller.

Joust vs Balloon Fight. Which one is better, and why?

I beat Super Macho Man legitimately. Did a run from the start, won with a 13-1 record. I also beat Mike Tyson...but rather than starting from my password right before Super Macho Man, I used the code to go straight to Mike later on. ...Does this count as beating the game? I mean, there's no way to get that Mike Tyson code legitimately, is there? It's never shown in the game.

Hey /vr/. I need help remembering a PSX game with graphics kinda like Diablo but it was most probably a shooter with 2 or 4 characters to choose. I just suddenly remembered I played something like that as a kid but fuck me, I don't remember the title at all. In fact I only remembered two short scenes and I'm not even sure it was a shooter. I think it started with the chosen character going into a dungeon of sorts located inside a jungle or something like that.

Retro tune thread

Retro tune thread 18 posts and 7 image replies omitted. Click to view.
What in your opinion, is the best "village" music from any retro game? I'm nominating this obscure track from mediocre turn based strategy "Blazing Heroes" (or "Mystaria") from Sega Saturn - starts at 9:03: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yf7k6_H56Sw Just listen to that lute, it's like sinking into a warm bath of medieval relaxation. It's the perfect soundtrack to a day spend listening to rumours in the tavern, and leisurely selecting a new blunt weapon for your cleric at the local blacksmith. Post your favourite "village" music in this thread (doesn't have to be medieval).

Here my favorite game of all fucking time. Only needed to be able to skip the cutscene to be flawless. But this game was not that well known in America so why did they made shitty sequels?

I've downloaded Ultima Underworld and was wondering if there's some sort of overhaul like eDuke 32. Modern WASD and mouse controls and a better HUD would be greatly appreciated. Or am I doing this completely wrong and should get used to the controls?

How about a motherfucking Tetris and spinoffs thread? Which version(s) did you grow up with? Which ones are your favorites? >in b4 they're all the same Anyway, I grew up with the NES (the Nintendo one, not the Tengen one) and GameBoy versions, as I imagine most people did. Also Tetris Attack, though it doesn't really count. Pic is from the original IBM PC version btw. It was the first official port of the original game, which was developed for an old Soviet computer. It's pretty primitive as you can imagine, but the core gameplay is all there, of course.

Are there any SNES emulators for Windows that Just Werks™? I mean why do they all have hideously outdated GUIs or command line garbage instead of using something simple that tosses all your ROMs in one easy to click window like Project64/1964/jNES or even regular Windows Shell integration like gens/VisualBoyAdvance?

Sup /vr/. So, I got this on GOG, just completed the first mission, and shit, this is pretty fucking fun. Some things aged kinda badly, but overall this game's entertaining me more than modern PC games. Anyhow, not what this is about. Since this is my first playthrough of an old game, is there something I should know that's not gonna be obvious at first to someone who wasn't raised on PC games? Only old PC games I played back in the day were Doom, Quake, Age of Mythology and Pharaoh.

Hey /vr/, I really love the look of the graphics in old graphical adventure games. I have never played any of the old ones (I'm talking about the ones where there are scanlines, 256 colors, etc) but what are your guys favorite scenes/sprites/whatever you want to call them from these games? I know, I am missing out, and yes, i am planning on playing them soon

I know this is slightly off topic of the board, but this is the only board where I've seen the banner, so I doubt anyone else would be able to help. I'm interested in the Garamonde Graffiti stuff at on the banner at the top of the /vr/ board. The problem is, I don't really trust anything I see from the banners on this site. Does anyone know anything about the site? To keep things on topic, lets also have a retro game picture topic.
