ITT: games only you played
I'm a guy and I don't get why my parents got me this game? Honestly, it's a good game, but my parents wouldn't have known the difference, I remember it was my favorite game for a while, they didn't think it was weird?
I post this in every one of these threads I see and I don't think I've run into even one other person who's played it
Which seems odd because I thought this game was baller as fuck as a kid. World map was fucking HUGE for a Genesis game.
My female cousins had it, I played the fuck out of it, it was fun as hell, as expected from Capcom games, but back then I didn't knew which companies made what, I just played it because my cousins were playing it, and I realized it was actually amazing.
Probably one of the few games that's fun to play where all the levels are underwater.
OP here again. Been thinking about my childhood some more. I think my parents were trying to encourage my younger sisters to play vidya with me so we would get along better and I wasn't always playing by myself. I tried teaching one of my sisters how to play the N64 but I would get mad and yell whenever she did something wrong; why would I do that, she was just playing the game. Then they got us 2 extra gamecube controllers. We played some Mario Party together, but even then I feel like I was a competitive autist. And Animal Crossing, I would get pissed off when my sister got new furniture, what the hell is wrong with me, who cares. And they got one sister a Harry Potter game, she didn't like Harry Potter or video games, I think they were just trying to get us to spend time together. I remember being mean to my sisters a lot, probably because I was made fun of at school and was taking it out on them. I wish I had been nicer to my sisters. I wish I hadn't wasted my life.
It was really weird playing this Little Mermaid game and remembering how young I was. It's like if you have a document you've been making backups of as you went along, and after it's nearly done, you go back and look at the outline - there's not much there, but there are no mistakes yet and it's full of potential.
My brother and I played this game so much as kids, we both loved it.
It's incredibly quirky and one of those poorly translated games, so it ends up being funny in how it says things.
I still try to get people to play it when i get the chance.
one of my favorite nes games. rented it from blockbuster all the time.
played this game as a kid, finished it tonight
I don't remember it being as bad as it was... finished it though. I remember finishing it as a kid. But yeah its kinda shitty.
>that enchanted sword
>my nostalgia dick
Pic related was the first game I ever played. I can't even find links to the full Windows version.
>tfw the "games only you played" threads on /v/ have only 5th and 6th gen games
ITT: games everyone played.
For some reason I think the SMS version has a better collision detection and is more playable than the arcade game. Also, the ost was really well ported, love the soundtrack.
Action RPG. Massive map, you have to eat and sleep. Combat is simple but exploration is awesome.
And if you die, you start over as your character's brother who has different base stats, but can recover your old equipment from your grave. You then have one last brother, then it's game over.
I mean it was a freeware game so its kinda cheesy to use in this thread, but I have yet to meet or talk to anyone who's played this but me.
Socket and S.O.S aren't as obscure as I thought they were though
>unless by "too modern" you mean exactly all its problems, the "modern" gaming approach
Exactly. I even play some indie games being released now, age isn't the issue.
I was kind of a shithead over videogames too. I used to yell at my older brother because he always had to be the first to play our new game. I spazed out when I came home and caught him playing my new GBA game. It had three save files so it wasn't a big deal. I could have shared my games and had memories of playing them with my sibilings, but noooooo I had to turn them off to games instead.
Any of you remember Dataware's games? Like the Winged Warrior trilogy and pic related.
Their games were a bit shit, but back in the 90s it was novel to play Famicom Wars and Dragon Quest clones on a PC.
I've played faery tale it's okay. The real cream of the crop for EA RPG's that not many have played is Rings of Power. I could never find it to buy, so I rented it and kept it. Well worth the $75 fee.
I've got one that I've never seen or heard mentioned anywhere on 4chan period. Or pretty much anywhere else. The only reason I know the name is because I found a thread on dosgames talking about it, with a grand total of two users.
It's a DOS shareware game from '89 called either "Army" or "Campaign" that you might have seen on one of those 50-200 in 1 shareware CDs. It's a pretty damned basic game, you have a few unit types, all you really do is roll dice and use the dice to either move or attack. Very simple, but pretty fun. I once tracked down a copy of the shareware version, but had no luck emulating it. Gonna go see if I can find another copy and try again.
Tons of shareware stuff. Sometimes I even wonder if people actually bought (or "register" as they used to say) these things.
