Does /vr/ have a "required reading" list for each generation? Could you people even agree on something like that?

So I recently bought a Vectrex, but everytime I put in a cartridge the screen goes flickering. Is there a reason for this? (I have a PAL Vectrex mind you)

Cute games?

Can I be a massive faggot and ask for a cute vidya thread? I need it for reasons. Preferably snes games, but anything goes. Pop'n Twinbee and Puzzle Bobble are pretty great. Buster Busts Loose is pretty cute too.

If you like tennis games, you should really play Final Match Tennis for PC Engine

If you like tennis games, you... 4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Sorry for making such an enthusiastic thread, I just wanted to recommend this. It is really the best tennis game I have ever played, it has the best most sofisticated and realistic gameplay of any tennis game I have ever played. And it amazes me that a game so old can be so much better than the tennis games of the last decade, all they have to do it copy Final Match Tennis and give it better graphics. In order to fully enjoy it you have to use the cheat that lets you play in hard mode, but if you have not mastered the controls, you may get your ass kicked. You can play as all the tennis greats of the 70s and 80s (Lendl, Borg, Becker, Edberg, McEnroe etc) and the characters shots, speed, power serve, volleys are like those of the real players they represent. It is very replayable because every player plays different, for example, I love playing Connors vs Edberg matches, because it is so even, and in hard mode the AI is as good as me, we are split 50/50 and the matches become a dog fight. The best player is Lendl, he is the hardest one to beat. Against some players you can't always return their first serve, it is so fast that you have to guess (that is also realistic) It isnt rare for a match to last well over 20 minutes. the cheat is : "Hold SELECT and "II" and keep that, press four times left and ten times right. This will give you the choice of levels. While you will beat the level 1 to 3 - opponents very fast, you will get caught especially from level 5! " a youtube video of someone playing with Pavel Slozil (the worst player) agaisnt Lendl, he wins but it lasts half an hour http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OwLiZZ1zGg

It's early 1995, and you're looking to buy another console to hook up to your 46" big screen. So, what's it gonna be? There's an awful lot to choose from... (you could wait for the N64, but that's still a long ways off and that extra cash you have is really burning a hole in your pocket)

So, a local game store has a copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga for 300. I looked at prices online and its a pretty good deal considering the average price. Have any of you played it? Is it worth shelling out the money for?

I don't know if it's entirely retro, but is there much information on the iQue? I've talked to actual chinese kids at my university and shown it to them, but they never recognize it. Was it just a weird novelty for rich chinese kids back in the day? I have never found much info on it, aside from it being yet another 'download games from kiosk onto rewriteable memory' thing that Nintendo did all the time.
