Update: Cartridge or NES

Hello forum world, A while ago an NES came in with 2 games, and I couldn't get anything to work. You guys gave me some suggestions, and it's taken me awhile... but I have an update, and it unfortunately isn't a good one. I now have 3 cartridges, Urban Champion, Dusty's Softball, and Mickey Mousecapa...

Re: Systems You Have Sold Off

My parents never liked how into video games I was. I got my first console, a SNES, from my grandma on the fourth birthday. When my family moved to a new state when I was twelve, they got me a PS2-- but made me sell my SNES and all its games because they didn't think I needed two consoles. Eight yea...

Re: Games that are so bad they're awesome?

I think the original Daytona USA for the Saturn might be a candidate. The graphics had crazy pop-up but I love that bright arcade look. Also, the music is hilarious. That "Game Over" song? Priceless. I'll second this.... DAYTOOOONA!!! And when you unlock the horses? hahahahhaa. Yeah, that...

Re: Games that are so bad they're awesome?

To be honest, I rarely intentionally buy or play bad games. I love bad movies (Blood Freak and Robot Monster, for example, are two the most entertaining films I've ever seen) and bad art (I've got more horrific Sonic the Hedgehog fan-art saved than I know what to do with) and I appreciate some biza...

Re: Just how bad are the Star Wars prequels?

They are as labored as they are incoherent, and their central figure is completely insufferable. I was a kid when The Phantom Menace came out. I somehow missed it at the theater, but my parents bought the VHS to go with our copy of A New Hope . I can say damn near every line in A New Hope from the ...

Re: Just how bad are the Star Wars prequels?

Yeah... add me to the list of "The Prequels are awful." I haven't even seen episode 7 and rogue one, and I've heard that they aren't too bad... but the 'prequels' are so insanely awful that it has literally killed any fandom I once had for the series. And I loved star wars growing up. I'm ...

Re: "Mostly Gone" Genres

This is a great thread. The theme being that other than indie productions in small numbers most of these genres are indeed dead. And that does make me sad... I loved many of the Tycoon games, simcity, etc. I've downloaded many off of GoG and still have many from my youth that I play today. (Roller C...

Re: Worst Movies of 2016!

That's why I'm really excited about my movie script "Gone With The Wind 2: Electric Boogaloo". That actually happened. There was a sequel to the original novel in 1991 called Scarlett , and it got turned into a $40 million TV miniseries a few years later. The adaptation has only a 6.5 rat...

I will second this: And add that if you firmly believe that either the PS1 or SNES are the the greatest RPG system of all time, you might be a retro gamer.

Re: I think I'm a one console gamer

I have all my systems either chained together RF wise or on the AV switcher, so changing between systems isn't complicated. My Dreamcast and N64 probably get the least play, (Wait... take that back. It's the Wii. Don't even have that hooked up currently) while the SNES and the PS2 get the most. (GC ...
