>there are people on /v/ who have never played games released before the year 2000
What's the matter kids?
All of you
>look at me I'm so oldfag I play old games, I am objectively literally better than all of you, haha you younglings are just so stupid
You're not a special fucking snowflake, you're a fucking adult in a kid's ballpit, complaining about it isn't going to fucking help, you manchild
>that moment you realize most of /v/ was born in 1997 or later
>that moment you realize you're the oldest faggot on the board
I miss pokemon blue
>as opposed to me who is from the early 90s which is clearly superior, as are my tastes
way to project, I was just telling you that you're telling everyone to kill themselves when everyone in this thread except OP is just like you: mad and young.
Elitism and trolling aside, it is a real shame how many people consider themselves "gamers" without having even a basic background with games. You wouldn't call yourself a film buff if you've never seen a movie before 2000, and you're certainly not well-rounded musically if you only listen to what's popular from this decade.
It just shows how little people respect videogames. If you don't respect videogames you can fuck right off.
>tfw CoD circlejerks are acceptable on neo-/v/
>tfw 95% of neo-/v/ also regularly browses reddit
>tfw neo-/v/ thinks casualized action games like Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 are good, not to mention love ASSFAGGOTS like dota
>tfw neo-/v/ dismisses any game before their time as automatically bad because "muh nostalgia"
>tfw this thread proves how real neo-/v/ really is
Oh well. There's always /jp/ where all the kids won't go.
>there are children that have never listened to music on a turntable
get the fuck off my website
>oh no, not everyone is a 30 year old loser like me
Yeah seeing all those dead serious responses from people that seem seriously mad about OP's simple bait really give me a more proper perspective about the kind of people that predominates on /v/ now.
There's also /vr/ and /m/ where there's less 00s kids, too.
>Yeah seeing all those dead serious responses from people that seem seriously mad about OP's simple bait really give me a more proper perspective about the kind of people that predominates on /v/ now.
mad and delusional as fuck lmfao
No one on this board has actually done this or even feels games made before 2000 are too "dated", just a well known bait. People don't realize if a game was good when it came out it most likely is good today, only stuff like atari 2600 games and things like those are games that are dated, probably some newer stuff then that as well but not much.
I was poor as fuck as a kid so I could just afford to play old gen. At least when I finally got a ps2 and gamecube, I had fuck tons of games to play
I wish I could be as blissfully ignorant as you. Any friend I've ever gotten off /v/ plays a couple of bullshit games and almost always play call of duty. like no joke call of fucking duty. Maybe the people who give out their usernames are extra faggoty but it proves that at least some people on here are total casuals. Steam threads are particularly bad, nobody plays anything worthwhile. I have friends irl that shit on old games constantly but come here from time to time.
It's all my personal experience sure, but it seems like it's getting pretty bad to me.
I played Thief 1 TDP for the first time in 2014. Still GOAT.
Neither Deus Ex nor T2:TMA were much more advanced (released in 2000) and they're also great.
I'm 24, I just never played them because I spent years playing virtually nothing but
Prince of Persia: SOT Trilogy.
not him but i don't think it matters when you're born - if you haven't played a game made before your time you're not suited to have an opinion since it's not informed or gained perspective
Can't say I've ever met anyone on here so I can't say I have the same experience but even then I think the people on here aren't that bad, yet. Even with underage users they probably come here because they don't care about modern games, or they shitpost but probably everyone here does. Barely any good discussion on modern games happen here, just eceleb garbage and console wars. This board would be nothing if people only wanted to talk about modern games.
I disagree. I agree with you that you gain another perspective if you have different kinds of games to compare a game to. But the question is if you have to play those old games to gain that perspective or not?
The year a game is released should be irrelevant for this discussion.
My nigga. PoP games were my life when I was a kid.
>tfw first rated M game I've owned
When I was 10 it was pretty fucking cool, gave it a play a few months ago and it's still cool.
Fucking little faggot teenagers on here born around or after 1998, the best year for vidya. They literally couldn't enjoy it. I'm supposed to take anything those little dipshits say seriously?
I was not talking about history. I was talking about perspective on games. How you can get a better understand of games when you have a large variety of games to compare it to.
Well it depends on what games you played doesn't it? My point is that you do not need to play games of different eras to play a great variety of games and the fact that you have played games from different eras does not mean that you have played a great variety of games.
I disagree, I think playing games from all eras (not only retro, modern too) will give you a greater perspective than if you only played games either old or modern exclusively. Certain genres were more prevalent in the past, and some are more prevalent now.
Also playing older games and modern games will give you a perspective on how some genres evolved, if you only played old ones, you wouldn't know what's become to the genre now, and if you only played modern ones, you won't know where they come from.
>tfw neo-/v/ thinks casualized action games like Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 are good
I'm 25 and I like both of these games. Looks like you're just salty because it's no longer a Japanese game circlejerk board like it was in 07 and before.
A person doesn't need to experience literature, music, or film from its earliest days to have an appreciation of today's counterparts.
How many movies from the 1920's have you seen? Does that affect your ability to enjoy a film released a month ago? Why don't you watch films from the 1920's?
>I love Undertale!
>Oh cool. I also like how it feels like an NES JRPG
>What the fuck is an NES?
You're just using excuses, just accept that you're a person with little perspective of your own hobby, and move on.
Enjoy the latest call of duty? Even have nostalgia for something like Modern Warfair 2 because you were a kid when it released? Fine, keep enjoying it, nobody cares.
I actually watched Douglas Fairbanks' Robin Hood and it actually started off quite good. It was obviously going to be melodramatic but it was almost like seeing a silent opera with more intelligible dialogue. The second half just turned into a generic swashbuckler with Robin hood and his merry men gallivanting around like a bunch of gay Peter Pans.
>Born in 95
>love games as long as they're good games regardless of the year they were made
>crying this hard over age and not enjoying videogames
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle was one fo the greatest Sonic games of all time.
>if you don't watched any movies from before 2000 you are considered a pleb idiot and your opinion doesn't matter
>if you didin't hear any music from before 2000 you are considered a pleb idiot and your opinion doesn't matter
>if you never played a game from before 2000 you are a smart and hip kid who don't play those old shitty games, when modern games like Call of Duty and le Undertale XD
All video games are lowest common denominator shit, you fucking retard.
>and if anything was half decent from back then it would get an hd remake
What about good games that can't be remake because of licensing hell?
You sound like a 00s kid that gets mad when people tell you how it is.
I'm 42 years old. I got an Atari 2600 for Christmas in 1980. I typed in programs in basic onto my C64 in the mid 80's. I had an AMiga in the early 90's. I used to haul my 486 over to my friend's house later on in that same decade to LAN Doom.
I'm sorry, were you saying something about how I lack perspective on gaming?
Nah just corporations do not want to make good game design happen in games and they want to be half ass about game design when it comes to difficulty.
Instead they spend most of their time convincing people to buy their new product.
Oh yeah? Well I'm 82, I was playing mechanical games in arcade alleys in my town back in the day. Kids these days and their flashy digital casual games.
What an amazing perspective you must have on gaming then!
Or wait, you're not even who I was responding to in the first place, are you? Unless you're foolish enough to contradict yourself in two consecutive posts...
>/v/ defends indiepixelshit which offers nothing new and is just full of carbon copies of classic games
>classic games are dated
