I was around 13 when 6th gen was new. Bought a Dreamcast first, then a Gamecube, and I would trade my GC back and forth with a friend who had the PS2 until I got my own PS2 slim in like 2009.

Never got an Xbox.

I remember when I got the GC with Melee and all my friends buying their own GC controllers to play.

I owned a PS2, GCN, and XB.

Played the PS2 the most.

I think my favorite games were RE4, GTA SA, and Fable respectively.

6th gen was perfect, I was an idort but I feel you were a winner regardless of which console you owned, even if it was a Dreamcast.

My friends and I played pretty much everything from Nightfire to Dark Legacy, Halo, Brute Force, Soul Calibur 3, DoA Ultimate and 3, Mario Kart DD, Melee, etc. It was a good time for both single player and multiplayer

Play any modern FPS then play Goldeneye again. Hell, play Wind Waker or Twilight Princess then Ocarina of Time again. Controls feel far more fluid in the newer stuff which can ruin older games for them.

>tfw you only had a cube throughout that generation

There were many great games released for it, but holy shit those droughts and lack of third party support was fucking brutal. Having to play Metroid Prime or Rouge Squadron for the upteenth time while seeing commercials for games that were only on PS2 and Xbox sucked hard.

In hindsight, I don't know why I never just asked for a PS2 for Christmas.

N64 gets too much hate. I never claimed it's the best console ever, but it's more than just "mario and zelda" as you guys claim.

I agree a lot of fanboys are just blind nostalgia kids who started gaming with Mario 64 and OOT, but the same can be said about nostaliga fagos on PS1 with trash like Crash and Spyro, or kids who started on Saturn with.... wait, nobody owned a Saturn in the west back then, except me, and I loved Nights.

He's actually a hilarious guy, he insists that only americans like Nintendo (in general, not just the 64) and also claims PAL is better than NTSC and defends the censorship on the PAL version of castlevania bloodlines.
He also thinks the correct way to pronounce Sega is "See-guh" because that's how they pronounce it in Australia.

Lots of fun with that guy.

Own a Xbox which doesn't work anymore (i've been thinking in fix it for the third time).

I have more Gamecube games and I've put more time into Melee than all the games I own for PS2 put together, but I have more all time favorites on PS2 than Gamecube. Dreamcast is cool, but you can tell its a transitional console in a lot of the games. All the Xbox had going for it was leftover unfinished Dreamcast games and Ninja Gaiden Black

A 2D powerhouse that had a lot of its potential wasted on 3D games for the american market,Japan got most of the good games and nearly all of them are 2D.

>>323446703

Gamecube has a lot of 3rd party games and Xbox has a lot of japanese exclusives like Gun Valkyrie, Jet Set Radio Future, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Otogi, Wolf Metal Chaos and more.

I agree he kinda missed on PS2 because it has a huge catalog, but also PS2 was the weakest one in terms of hardware, got the worst multiplats and watered down ports of games like RE4 and Viewtiful Joe that started as GC exclusives.

>Watered down is doing them a disservice

Same as the other guy doing a disservice claiming Gamecube only had Nintendo games and Xbox only having western games.

PS2 ports might not be unplayable, but they are watered down ports all the same, not as good as the originals.

Yeah, Dante is cool, but I prefer smoother graphics and no slowdowns.

If you were an idort, you'd never get multiplats on PS2 because you knew they were not as good as on GC or Xbox.

Off the top of my head, 4 player Power Stone 2 multiplayer was probably one of the most fun games ever. Jet Set Radio. Playing pass the pad with my friend on Ninja Gaiden and general early online console stuff (Phantasy Star, Halo 2).

Owned a DC first, then a PS2

I still have the DC, but lost the AC adapter, because, third world country energy.

I played what I could get my hands on, I cherish the DC for San Francisco Rush, Jet Set Radio and Sakura Taisen 3.
I fondly remember on PS2 Finishing Shadows of the Colossus and how my mood changed from getting Killer 7 to actually playing it.
I also remember Burn Out Revenge, which to me is the peak of the series, no matter what everyone says.

The PS2 was a wild time where you could still get experimental titles and have a great time.

Does anyone remembers Shadows of Memories? That was a magical time when Konami made Quality vidya.

I inherited my two older brothers NES and TurboGrafX16, also had a kind of...old computer in the basement that had a racing game and ZORK on jt. Got an SNES for my...5th or 6th birthday I think? Got a Nintendo 64 on Christmas of the release year, had a family PC sometime either before or after that with games like Neverhood and A Bridge Too Far.

From that point, a PS1, a Dreamcast, then a PS2, Xbox, then a 360. I don't have any new consoles since then. Mainly play on my PC now.

Also had a Gameboy Color and a GBA SP.

Loved the shit out of al of them. Too many great games to name. One that sticks out especially from "later" consoles to me was the Dreamcast. Huge library of fun niche titles, playing PSO v.2 online was mind blowing to me. It was probably the last console I had that felt like it was strictly focused on games across the board as opposed to being a multimedia machine that happens to play games.
>>
thats not the reason couch coop is dead.

its dead because games are too advanced and consoles can't handle them like they used to. consider this. Doing split screen was easy back in the day because the console had enough power to keep the graphical fidelity and the frame rate solid. nowadays, even though consoles are more powerful then they have ever been, games are that much more complicated and rendering 1080p at even 30 fps on two separate screens is basically impossible.

Everyone i knew only had a n64 or ps1. I was one of the few if not the only kid with a sega saturn. For some reason everyone was fascinated by it and loved the controller and really thought it had the best looking graphics

I know a lot of people dont care for arcade games but to me that has always been the draw of sega. Perfect arcade ports and tons of score and time based games built for replaying. Theres still no other company like them, since namco and konami are dead.

Saturn is boss as fuck. Never knew anyone as a kid that had one, got one last year and have about 20 games for it.

My only gripe with the console is the fucking long boxes, so I import all my games. They're cheaper that way too.

Panzer Dragoon Saga is one of the coolest JRPGs, I've ever played and the Capcom arcade ports are spot on.

Well I never said the ports were better, they just aren't watered down. In the case of those two games Capcom threw in some extra novelty to make up for the fact the gamecube versions looked better. So they actually have more content on PS2.

Haha, you are pretty defensive.

Is there an official definition as to what consitutes a "watered down port"? I think having worse graphics and slowdowns means a port is watered down. Not as good as the original = watered down, even if you throw in a few extras to make up for it.

I'm sorry my wording hurt your feelings.

My man, I remember this. There were many crossovers, but as a kid seeing halo or GTA on the other system made my mouth water.

I was happy with my Timesplitters 2-3 and Ghost Recon, though. Damn I used to play those all day. Recently went back to Rogue Leader and found it VERY hard to play, but I played through TS 2 & 3 about 2 years ago and it still felt pretty good aside from shit graphics.

What an age of mystery though. Internet not big and retarded enough to spoil everything and trolls were much more effective at planting fake "secrets" (like sonic being in SSBM)

As a huge DBZ fag, i was used to playing hundreds of hours of each budokai game. around the 80th hour of that game, the loading times started getting atrocious, and i thought it was the game disc. around hour 90, my ps2 just shut off while i was fighting Frieza as Krillan and never turned on again.

As time goes on the average age for /v/ stays the same. always 17-20.

The PS2 was the worst and led to the state of gaming today. It sold for non-gaming reasons and wasn't supported by the top companies aside from maybe Namco, Capcom and Konami who were all dying by that point anyway. Its commercial success told execs that they didn't need to make good game machines, just multimedia centers with controllers and the rest would follow. The next gen followed that formula (except for the Wii which was basically gen 6.5) and now that's all the market has become.

Just give it up man, it's getting pathetic. You got BTFO, so I gave you some benifit of the doubt and then you go and run your mouth again.

You clearly don't have both games on both consoles, but I'll fill you in. Both run fine and look fine. There isn't a noticeable difference unless side by side, that's why I wouldn't call them watered down.

Now stop shitposting on your phone and listen to your teacher, wait till you get home from school.

I had the regular Family Game like the one I posted.

On Coleco I had Smurf: rescue in gargamel's castle, I think it was my first game ever. That game looked amazing for 1982 standards. (I played it much later though, but I knew no better at the time, and compared to the other games on the coleco, Smurf looked the best, "like a real TV cartoon")

a lot of games aren't even 480i, the PS2 was so weak it often ran games in a even lower resolution than the Gamecube or Xbox just to keep the framerate stable.

The framerate wasn't the reason, broken AA hardware was. Devs didn't want pixels on the screen so they went with a bit lower resolution and supersampled. It made the picture blurry but at least with less pixelization.

nice revisionism, they were expensive for most of its lifespan and keep in mind the PS2 went through price cuts as well so it stayed competitive as a DVD player. Once those floodgates were opened (a bit like how Nintendo disguised the NES as an "entertainment center" VHS-esque thing) it gained huge market traction and became the go-to console because everyone and their dog had one. Doesn't mean it was any good.

Jesus bud, idk if you're having a tantrum or you're really trying to force a meme, or both.

Because you don't know what you're talking about. In no way are those ports watered down. To be watered down they would be like bare bones like Tony Hawk 3 on PS2 compared to the PS1 port. Viewtiful Joe is the same game on both ports, and I never noticed a frame drop on my two playthroughs, my second playthrough as Dante btw.

You're wrong

What are you talking about? In 2001 the price of them was equal to PS2 and went even lower in next years.

I think it was, but I remember the drawing to be lower quality, then again, who can trust memories from over 20 years ago?

It came with a 7 in 1 and played SMB all the time because we didn't know how to switch games. It was the down pad.

I love the 6th gen, but man, I miss the Famiclone time, cartridges used to cost less than 5 bucks, you could buy a game every week if you saved your allowance back then.

I still have some cartridges with me, even though I no longer have the console, and now all the famiclones come in shapes of PS3 and modern consoles. It's sad.

So did the price of the PS2. You could either get a device that could only play DVDs or one that could also play games for a similar/lower price, which option do you think people went with? Stop being retarded.
>>
>>323451747

Actually in 2001 DVD players were already at the 80-180 dollar mark.

You do know they were out since the late 90s right? The only time they were expensive was when people were buying them in 1997-1999.

Same thing happened to blu-ray, they were already inexpensive by 2008.

>I still have some cartridges with me, even though I no longer have the console, and now all the famiclones come in shapes of PS3 and modern consoles. It's sad.

The newer famiclones are really shit, they're all NOAC (Nes on a chip), as opposed to the actual 80s/90s famiclones which were real clones of the Famicom. And they're expensive now because people collect them, even if they're bootlegs, they're old so it's not easy to come across ones in good shape.

Owned a GCN and PS2, got GCN first. Currently own a GCN and PS2 though not the same PS2.

Best memory? Tie between the Summer I got a PS2 with greatest hits copies of Sly Cooper, Ratchet & Clank, and Kingdom Hearts, or the Christmas I got Paper Mario Thousand Year Door and Mario Kart Double Dash.

Bruh, when you come across a game that is actually watered down, you'll know it.

This whole exchange tells me you've haven't played all that many games and don't have a good frame of reference for what is a bad port. And I was the one who wasn't an idort and can't detect performance issues, lmao.

Let's leave it at that, we're discussing semantics. We both agree that the PS2 ports aren't as good as the GC originals. And yes the extras are nice and all, but the performance isn't as good. Whether you consider that to not be enough to call it "watered down" or not, doesn't matter, they're not as good.

It sold because people wanted both for the same price instead of spending $300-500 to get them separately. That's why it sold as a DVD player game console. The reason people focus on the DVD part is because that's what made it skyrocket ahead of the competition.

I absolutely agree, but I don't recall my childhood being concerned about graphics, when I jumped from the Famicom to the Mega Drive, I was mind blown, but I could still go back to the famicom and enjoy the games that could only be enjoyed there without any concern on how it looks compared to the brand new Mega Drive.
The same happened when I jumped from the PS1 to the PS2, I first played The Bouncer on PS2 and was fantastic looking, but I was still playing Echo Night on PS1 and enjoying the fuck out of it.

Oh don't misunderstand anon, i fucking love the games of my past and i hardly care about graphics either

I'm of the mind that graphics shouldn't have advanced past maybe the wii. the wii as someone said is basically 6.5, and i just imagine what sort of lovely games the consoles nowadays could use their power on if everyone wasn't obsessed with graphics., like, we could have unique AI for all enemies in a dynasty warriors game or something, i dunno. I like pretty graphics but i think the pursuit of them has led to a detriment in games

You're bad at detecting sarcasm.

I've been saying "watered down" is just a term for a few posts now. What I meant originally hasn't changed: the PS2 ports don't run as good as the original GC games. But I won't say "watered down" again because that triggers you, so I'll just say they aren't as good.

I agree that horsepower now should be used to improve on the little things, and The Order is the clear example of what shouldn't be repeated.
I liked the nobility of Dead Rising 3 using horse power to put more zombies on screen, though the game itself didn't do much with it.
I like graphics getting better, but I appreciate more if the resources are used on making every square inch of the game an experience you can remember rather than a shiny mirror you will only look once.

6th gen was the last time there there were major differences between the different platforms. Sure, there were mutliplats, but there were also so many exclusive games on all platforms. Each one felt unique.

7th gen and beyond, everything has streamlined and 99% of games are multiplat and we're at the point where there's so little difference between consoles that fanboys just nitpick the one or two exclusives they have, even though the other 100 games are all the same.

And holy shit were the games good. On all consoles and PC, for that matter. It was that sweet spot where we could do relatively advanced stuff and yet not so technologically advanced that development is expensive as fuck and everything is focused grouped to hell and released on all systems.

Can't we all just agree Viewtiful Joe is good no matter what you play it on? Yes, I said I prefer the Gamecube version, it performs better, but no version is by any means bad. It's certainly not Bayonetta PS3 bad.

Split screening is shit. And with more than two players fucking forget it. It's only real appeal is cost since you can have four people play for the cost one game/console instead of everyone having to get their own...but we're all adults now and dropping a few hundred bucks on a console isn't the massive summer goal it was when we were kids, it's just something you think about for a few minutes to find the best package deal before ordering.

I've been reading you two idiots shitpost interchange but sorry, you are in the wrong.

Doesn't matter if the downgrade is huge or minimal, if it's not as good then it's watered down.

>>
>>323461172
standard definition is 480i. That means interlaced. Of the 480 total horizontal lines that make up the image, only half are displayed per frame. So you'll have even lines displayed during the first frame, the odds displayed during the second frame, etc.

This results in a "flickering" effect on unmoving objects, especially things like the HUD and text in general. And it's more blurry. 480p displaces each frame with all 480 lines, and looks much crisper. It's not "HD" but it's still better than 480i.

Also on modern LCD displays, when they get a 480i signal, they have to do deinterlacing to make a "fake" progressive picture and then go from there. This results in disgusting lag and image quality that looks like fucking shit. This is the reason why, when people go back and play their standard def games on their modern TVs, they wince at the graphics and say "ugh, I don't remember this game being this ugly back in the day". And that's because it wasn't. It looked much better on the CRT it was designed for.

>>
>>323462257
>What it lacked in quantity
PS1 wasn't exactly lacking in quantity, the N64 was. The problem is moreso the fact that 3D hadn't really matured yet so it was mostly shit textures, aliasing up the ass and shit framerates. That's probably why SEGA designed the Saturn as a 2D powerhouse initially... they weren't expecting the market to shift to shaky tech so quickly.

No problem. If you want to know more, just check out /vr/, since TVs, image scalers, and signal types are often discussed there due to the problems that older video games have on modern TVs.

you know, i went to a local halo tournement and they let you bring your own controller, i was the only one who brought a Duke, everyone else had third party shit. the top prize was a console of your choice, I made it to the quarter finals but i only lost because they didn't let me change my settings to inverted, which is what i was used to at the time since the 64 forced me to learn it.i bet i could have gotten a gamecube much earlier if i was allowed to change my settings

This is why i don't do tourneys, everyone i've ever done has faggy rules outside of the ones in game. like how you can only pick certain stages in smash bros
>>
>>323462506
It's hard to decide what the "right" move would've been, even in hindsight. Perhaps they should've waited until 1998/1999 to start releasing 3D-capable consoles that could actually put out decent 3D visuals AND at good framerates.

I definitely think that 5th gen's jump to 3D was too premature. But at the same time, there's no other realistic way it could've been done. I can't overemphasize how fucking impressive 3D was back in those days. It didn't matter if everything was blocky and ran at 15fps. It didn't matter that, looking back, high quality 2D sprite games look better than early 3D. the 3D just had that stupendous "wow factor" and there's no way it wouldn't have happened at that time.

>>
>>323463019
Well PC was already breaking new ground in the mid-90s with 3D so yeah, it was inevitable that consoles would follow. It's just that the Japanese philosophy of doing more with less REALLY wasn't suited to 3D until 6th gen which is why people, in retrospect, don't like 5th gen as much. Those who do mostly do so because of childhood nostalgia and the "WOW MARIO IN THREEEEDEEEE" effect. It didn't do anything for me at the time because I was already busy playing Descent and shit.

The thing is...it's hard not to do that these days since every console except Nintendo basically is a low grade PC with a few exclusives. 6th gen was the last time consoles were truly diverse and doing their own thing.
>>
>>323463373

Ever since I got a new PC earlier this year, I have been almost exclusively using it to emulate all those 6th gen-games that I missed out on back in the day. And holly fucking shit, did I miss out.

I never took this whole master race bullshit serioulsy, but I now realize how truly retarded these people are.

Gaming sucking today has nothing to do with consoles being unable to host engaging, deep games and everything to do with publishers pandering to a completely different audience than they did 10 years ago.

Ps2 had progressive retard.
And the e reader actually served a decent function back then compared to amiibo-You could use e reader cards to get nes games, or animal crossing items and other cool stuff. With amiibo you don't really do anything with them. You train a cpu, you unlock a board in mario party 10, you don't get much out of amiibo. But they did try properly with the e reader. They knew nobody would buy cards and a peripheral without a reason. Amiibo they could get away with because most people just want the figures.
