That's not true though. Games are shaped by the systems they are on, through the design of the console. It's power, it's controller, multiplier possibilities, etc. It's the context for the game, which always is important to any work. If you have no context for Elvis, for example, you'd just think it's pretty boring generic blues, if you diden't understand the times and the significance of him being white, etc.

That is the most incorrect thing I've read in the entire lifetime of this board. You act like there aren't strengths, weaknesses, and limitations you have to deal with when developing one for one system vs another. This isn't so prevalent nowadays, but the context of the system the game was developed for is extremely relevant for older systems.

Not him, but I remember when I first started to Emu stuff the sites I'd get Roms from would warn me that if I didn't own a copy of the commercial game, I was committing piracy and that my roms should be deleted in 24 hours.

For, maybe a week, I only downloaded games I already had but got over that eventually.

I don't think he's completely off-base for what he's saying. Companies like Nintendo only want their software usable/playable on a Nintendo console and distribute it with that in mind. Its the players who find work-arounds for whatever reason.

So, I kind of agree that certain games are made and meant to be played on a particular system, but I don't think emulation makes you poor, just resourceful.

Especially when some games get digital re-releases anyway. I don't think anyone buying a Virtual Console game is poor but they aren't playing the game on the system it was intended for and are emulating it.

However, all I have is my $1,100 computer and an internet connection.

While this may be the case, the guy you're replying to is an idiot to think playing on an emulator makes you any less of a player. The only way this is true is if you're using a shit emulator like ZSNES.

This is true, but to be fair most people already have a computer. Also, I have a pos laptop from 2004 that emulates most 32bit and earlier games flawlessly, I think anyone looking hard enough could find a cheapo computer on craigslist and start emulating in the <$50 range.

That being said, there's a quality to playing the game on the real hardware that you can't emulate, and this is coming from someone who's experienced a lot of great snes games through emulation. I couldn't afford Chrono Trigger or FF3 when I was a kid so I started emulating very early.

There's also a quality to hunting down and collecting these old games that's missing when you use a flashcart. Honestly, I would rather emulate with a usb snes controller than bother shelling out for a flash cart. The loose, collectible media is a big part of the appeal of retro games for me. There's something special about shuffling through a box of games to find the right one, popping it in the system and leaving it in there all night. In an age where physical media is all but dead, there's a great deal of novelty there.

In other words there's an answer for everyone, and we shouldn't shit on each other for finding a way that suits us to enjoy these great games. Some people want to play everything, some people like building a collection. These emulation vs hardware arguments suck.

This is just silly, when you buy a game you're buying the physical copy of it, something that was made in a limited-print run that will never be made again and holds intrinsic value as a result. You're either buying a hardware ROM or flash card or disc, and paying for the originality of it rather than the software that's on it.

When buying a retail copy of a game like Earthbound or Super Mario Bros 3 or Metal Slug X, the developers and publishers don't see a cent of it.
Because of this, I don't feel any guilt when I pirate a game that's out of print.

Due to the accuracy of emulators today, having the game and appropriate hardware is just personal preference. It doesn't make you better, it doesn't make you worse. We're playing the same games.

Actually it's 20, I counted it. Technically it's 60 FPS because the NES operates at 60 FPS (example, some of the sprites flicker or are shifted around), but it refreshes the game action one in every three frames, or 20 FPS.

River City Ransom runs at 30 FPS singe player, 20 FPS two player.

I went to a flea market yesterday and one guy really pissed me off internally since I knew he was lying.

He had a loose NES and was selling it for 50 bucks and told me that it goes for 160 or more on eBay.

Even worse were a couple of resellers inside that had no idea what they were talking about and marked anything with mario, zelda or pokemon in the title up to 40 or more.

Flea markets just aren't good around where I live. Either there is absolutely no one selling games or there are a few people selling at ridiculous prices. It really just makes me want to save up and go to the portland retro gaming expo or something since I hear the deals there can be really great since it's a bunch of vendors competing with each other in one place.

i don't think you know what a flea market is or how they work. there are legitimate vendors at flea markets. People make livings off of flea markets. And ebay is the creator of a cornered market. People are using buy it now prices instead of what actually sells. And plus everything about them not playing the game still stands. But the fact that I'm here, on a board that discusses retro games puts you in a pretty bad position trying to argue I don't play them. Or even sell them.

If someone had the fucking nerve to do that shit to me, I'd use that to my advantage in a bargain.

They're basically demonstrating their ignorance, so use a more aggressive approach (and I don't mean get up in the fucker's face like someone trying hard as fuck to be alpha) and throw lower numbers plus saying shit like "that's what people are asking, not getting" and "good luck finding anyone else to buy that" if you live in a small area or are buying a more obscure game. It doesn't matter if neither are true when you're dealing with fucks like that who don't have the courtesy to at least know their shit beforehand. Most people at flea markets selling games are old fucks who probably don't know about completed listings on ebay or the actual rarity of actual rare games. They just want a quick flip and to not go back home with a ton of shit they don't care about.

Worst thing that happens is they say no. You weren't going to buy their dumbfuck prices anyway. Hopefully no one else will either.

Most of them are old fucks with nothing better to do. They're far from needing money badly, they just want a flip and something to do.

Plus looking up prices on a phone in front of a customer is a fucking rude thing to do. At least know your shit beforehand instead of putting in the least amount of effort possible.

I can't see Devil Summoner 1 or Nocturne going up in price because of reprints though. Unless maybe you've got the first print Nocturne. Limited stuff will always command higher dollar, that's a given.

The PS2 games I see really spiking in price is .hack// and .hack//GU. Quarantine is already pretty expensive, and I feel like the fact that some fag could loose the Liminality bonus discs that come with the first tetralogy could create a smaller supply of complete games.

I dropped a lot of money on SNES in the past couple of months and the stuff I bought already costs more on ebay than I paid. And I bought it at a store where the guy prices with ebay. I have like $90 store credit and 71 coins on 99 gamers that I was going to drop on Nintendo stuff, but it seems less and less worth it. Even with the nostalgia. So I'm considering dropping it all into the Playstation market which seems to be a lot cheaper and has similar quality games.

Why is there so much of a disparity? Will Playstation ever reach the level of "blow up" that Nintendo did? I mean nostalgia is cool and all and I like the games, but I just can't justify dropping all the credit into one or two SNES games when Playstation games of all gens are so much cheaper.

Hard to say...

With Playstation, you already have the inflation going on for a lot of the more obscure/popular games (ex. Castlevania SotN, Tomba!, Medievil, Megaman Legends series, Strider 2, etc.)

Those are, for the most part, already at exorbitant levels and further price increases/drops are uncertain

Then there's games like Tron Bonne and LSD that will always be expensive as shit

Probably because the rules have changed several times to allow more generations, more stupid arguments, and more posters from /v/.

I miss when this board was 4th gen and earlier only. Those were good times.

You keep posting this dumb bullshit. That was literally less than a week and it wasn't any better than the first coming months of /vr/. Also, you make it seem like this place has gone through major changes when it hasn't. The aforementioned change was in this board's infancy, and the DC being allowed is not an entire generation being allowed.
