Getting back into emulation, and curious as to what your hidden gems of games are for the SNES.
I'm not talking about Chrono Trigger, FF2 and 3, Legend of Zelda LTTP, games everyone has.
I'm looking for hidden Jew gold of games. Games that kicked some ass, but I was never able to get ahold of.
Are we only talking about RPGs?
If not try pic related and if that isn't obscure enough for you try Phantom 2040.
Everyone knows about the Super Star Wars games but I rarely see people mentioning the Indiana Jones game. Why is that?
It looks interesting from the little bit I just saw, definitely reminiscent of Suer Star Wars.
As for your question, probably because, at least for the 30 and younger age group, there were probably more kinds who were Star Wars fans than Indiana Jones fans during the nineties, but that's just a guess.
EARTHBOUND HURRR. Has that shit storm passed?
LOOK AT ME I'M RARE
wishful thinking home slice, but neither. And I'm not wrong. Earthbound/Mother is good, but it's not great. It's only great because people keep spamming it and forcing it on you here. Don't take the red pill and don't take this the wrong way it's a VERY enjoyable game, it's loads of fun, but it's also lacking as far as RPGs go. All I'm saying is there are much better and the "rarity" has driven it's popularity through the roof. Pic unrelated
I just think it's a nice, quirky little RPG. I don't think it's the best of all time, or even necessarily the best on the SNES.
There. Now can we both agree we're reasonably sane individuals with rational thoughts and opinions?
Agreed, I like your style
Pic rarely related, and so not this time
you should have have heard of DC by now
16-bit programming magic grapple hook
>King Arthur's World
K. Arthur's World inspired a non-official sequel that's on Steam.
best 2d pinball vidyas imo (not familiar with MD/Genesis pinball tho)
Sup OP, I came because I saw my favorite console's pic in the front page... I'm a /pol/ack hardly browse anything outside of /pol/
Anyways... I have a USB SNES controller and I run these games on pic related when I'm not doing other stuff at home...
Pic related hope my list helps you... faggot.
Umihara Kawase. If you like challenging physics based platformers and spiderman you might like it.
Looking for more unknown games?
I liked the Famicom Detective Club II remake on SNES. If you're into mystery point-and-clicks, give it a try. The graphics are nice too.
As others suggested, Umihara Kawase is a unique platformer that utilizes grappling physics. The art direction is pretty... strange, but in a good way. The enemies are realistic sea creatures with legs, the background image is a blurry photograph, and you play as a young anime girl.
Milon's Secret Casle had a sequel on SNES that's actually good. You've probably heard of the NES game and how cryptic it is, but the sequel is a lot more fun. It plays more like a Kirby game.
Sutte Hakkun is a platformer-puzzle game that Nintendo released in '98. You play as a little transparent dude who has the ability to suck up paint and put it into blocks. Each color has a different effect on how the blocks move, which is fun for what it is
Play Hong Kong 97
Also, I haven't gotten far, but Terranigma seems pretty cool.
Every Quintet game
Shin Megami Tensei 1 &2
Live A Live
Metal Max Returns
Furai no Shiren
Sanrio World Smash Ball
Stargate is honestly pretty good, once you get used to the controls they actually feel great, lots of ways to move and maneuver.
You can run and shoot, shoot in 8 directions, shoot while ducking, grab on to ledges and hang from them, shoot when hanging from ledges, climb along ropes, throw hand grenades (that are rather powerful and commonly available)
Graphics and sound are good, final boss is honestly cooler than in the movie.
Not a perfect game, but pretty nice.
True Lies is really good, though I've seen more talk of it lately.
Like I try to constantly remind Quintetfag, it's very pretty excuse-plot garbage. Poorly translated and barely coherent. Shit, Illusion of Gaia is more of the same with even worse gameplay.
The gameplay isn't that great but everything else makes up for it. The atmosphere is pretty much unparalleled (for the time period anyways) and the music is fuckin great, I still listen to it from time to time
Definitely worth a go, especially if you like the world of shadowrun
>haha, this game is so bad, isn't it funny? I love playing really bad games
>this game widely regarded as shit is actually a misunderstood masterpiece
Regardless of which this makes you a hipster faggot
Who cares? Just let people play they want, if they want to enjoy a "so bad it's amusing" game now and then, let them.
The fact you used a watered-down term like "Hipster" anyway is annoying in the first place.
I'm sorry, I just really have a problem with people whitewashing objectively terrible games, it feels so contrarian.
It jusr rubs me the wrong way when someone tells me that the NES versions of Dragon's Lair or Chiller are actually really good and that they're a genius for thinking so and people who disagree are just parrots or plebeians.
I think I'm damaged.
Dragon's Lair on NES? Damn, I can't see how that sluggish piece of shit could be considered playable by anyone. The only good thing I can say about it is that the animations are smooth (but they're too smooth, the player inputs lag like hell) So I see what you mean in that regard. I don't get why people go against the grind just for the sake of it. (See: /tv/ on the Star Wars prequels)
In Hong Kong's case, it's more of how... bizzare it is that makes it funny to play. (No, I'm not saying it's secretly good or a "hidden gem") The fact that it's some anti-chinese game where you play as Bruce Lee's brother on a slaughterfest is pretty entertaining in its own right. And it was made by some used game store to advertise their shop? What the fuck is that shit?
>I can't see how that sluggish piece of shit could be considered playable by anyone.
You'd be surprised. A common deflection is "stop parroting e-celebs" as if that takes away from the game being horrible or as if it was previously beloved but then suddenly hated because of AVGN or whatever.
Don't need anyone to tell me that these controls are worse than the holocaust.
