Virtual Console reviews
« on: November 04, 2008, 09:09:25 PM »
Has anyone else noticed this trend with Virtual Console reviews of TG games where they say "This has classic style gameplay" and then you're left thinking "No. Frigging. Shit."?

I found one for Super Star Soldier that said  think along the lines of Galaga or Zero Wing.  Zero Wing goes >>>>>> not ^^^^^^^^^^^^^!! >_<

... and then they called it the Turbo Graf-X

..  ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

And someone whining that they can't hear Gate of Thunder's music, rofl.

And then my favorite:

"Well, in the early introduction of video games, there were a lot of action games. Donkey Kong, Mario Bros. But of course, everything was the same level by level. It took skill. But one intelligent man thought that on the lucky year of 1989, that they should add a twist - the start of some of the first RPGs. One of those - being Dungeon Explorer."

Since there were TOTALLY no RPGs before 1989.  Nope. Notta.  Ultima and Wizardry were figments of everyone's imaginations....

So, are most Virtual Console fanatics clueless about stuff pre Playstation or something?  Most of these Virtual Console reviews even on non TG platforms are full of psychobabble and garbage.



Then again paying for emulators and ROMs... er....  :clap:

:lol: You have summed up my opinion of Nintendo and Wii VC! And yes, the majority of VC users are seemingly oblivious of games pre-psx.

It's a sad state of affairs when you realize that the early 90's (to which I consider to be the golden age of console gaming) is being forgotten in favor of the generation that thinks games aren't games without polygons and FMVs.  It's also sadder to see on other forums how people would bitch about these "blocky" games being "too hard".  Oh, how these kids have no idea how hard we had it back then... :-({|=

Sorry, but I don't see your library card on the books of Ys.  Now, RETURN THEM TO ME!!!

Wow...I guess when I read from a million different sources that Dragon Quest was released in 1986 in Japan, I must have been reading myths! And I suppose my copy of Dragon Warrior had a typo when it says this is true! :roll:

I've also heard many times that Lara Croft was the first female character in a lead role in video games. Pff.

Nintendo obviously did a fine job of emulating the Duo audio capacitor problem.  :mrgreen:
