So eventually I graduate highschool and dump my girlfriend who put up with this addiction and I get into drugs and drinking and chasing women and normal shit that people that age do.

All this shit sat in my moms basement and I slowly sold it over the years. I estimate I made 6-7 grand selling maybe 2/3rds of it over the course of like 6 years, whenever I ran out of money or needed a bag of weed there was always an Atari lynx or some shit I could pull out of my ass and run up to half price books and make a quick buck. That’s the saddest part, most of the time I wasn’t even selling it for what it was worth.

Eventually the collection dwindled down to about 70-80 games for nes, snes, ps1, and n64. My brothers had stolen my GameCube and gameboy and neo geo pocket collection Christmas everything else had been sold. I no longer had any sega or Atari.

I did a bunch of acid last summer at a music festival and decided I needed to become a minimalist and sell everything I own. When it came to the games, I couldn’t truly get rid of them. I sold them to my brother for a mere $600, and he struck a jack pot. There was chrono trigger and castlevania Dracula x in their. Most of the n64 classics. A copy of the original Zelda I had since I was a kid.

The only thing I own now is a mini snes, and I miss my video games dearly.

Should I start collecting again? I have recurring dreams almost nightly about striking the jack pot, finding hundreds of games (no sports titles) for super cheap or in a dumpster somewhere. Would it really be a waste of life to try to collect and beat all of the first party Nintendo titles?

Collecting shit is just a form of hoarding and hoarding shit you don't use is pathetic. Money, drugs, and guns are fine in my book. Hoard those all you want. Imagine the kick of finding and swallowing some of the world's last remaining Quaaludes.

You want to play some games? Start with some of the thousands of MAME games you've never even heard of.

i have a few old ps1 jrpg disc sets among my collection. bunch of old things but those are the only old games i've got that i'd consider to have much value. bought most of them for say $20 per title, all those old multi-disc games by this point sell for about the same as a new current-gen title. i expect them to wind up being even more stupidly expensive in coming years.

one of the many things i kick myself over is having lent out my copy of einhander ages ago, which ofc disappeared within a couple weeks of being at my buddy's apartment. i originally got it for like $15 off amazon (in a time before amazon was ubiquitous, or even widely known.) same disc in box with cover/manual is easily over $100 now. also i fucking love that game and would not have parted with a physical copy willingly.

unless it's to one of the tiny number of legit places that archive old games.

Sure, start collecting again if it's something you enjoy. I find the process the most enjoyable part, going to thrift stores and retro shops and browsing a couple times a week. Garage sales too.

That's quite the scam you pulled at goodwill. kinda jealous

Sonic has some good games I'm sure I wont love the movie but I'm harsher than those than on games. I genuinely have enjoyed some even mediocre sonic games but as I've gotten older and have way less time I tend to play the best of the best rather than anything I can get my hands on now. Truthfully though in my younger days even the lesser quality sonic games would be played through by me once they hit the discount rack at least. I even somewhat enjoyed shadow the hedgehog glad you liked what looks like a mediocre movie op.

And be unable to communicate with 95% of the userbase?

PSO2 is great and all but the language barrier really kills it for me, hoping the EN version has some people that play it considering this screenshot I took is from early 2014

The game has been out over 6 years and we're only just now getting an EN version?

The brief beta on Xbox was pretty dope.

Have fond memories of PSO on Dreamcast, Gamecube, and Xbox original so I have high hopes.

Though what the fuck it's taken them SO GOD DAMN LONG. Still no actual release date announced too...

Playing wow classic with some buddies, they started a guild and we just did our first MC last night. Looking forward to BWL, feels goodman being one of the main tanks for the guild and feeling like I'm playing a useful role for once having played a DPS only class in Vanilla.

Maybe it's nostalgia, but I really liked the original xbox 360 UI. I hate how modern UI's all look like windows 8, they all look extremely minimalistic and boring. Makes me think of working in a cubicle. I kinda like the new steam big picture UI though

just go left once and press A to see all your games. much simpler and faster than seeing your library on ps4, ps3, or 360, so i don't really get the issue either. i would like a bigger array and folders but what we have works fine and i wouldn't want to sacrifice the OS's speed.

It's almost exactly the same as the PS4: couple of tiles of recently played games and a library screen with everything on it.
Why is it suddenly shit on the Switch when the PS4 has had this for years.

PS4 lets you actually sort and order the games yourself and put them into folders, it doesn't just have one gigantic folder with every game you own in it with incredibly basic sorting options and it doesn't force you to only have recently played in the order they were last played on the home screen causing games you're not constantly booting to get shunted into a giant bin

the all games screen is fucking awful dude, I have 40 games on my switch and shit gets fucking buried, I'd really rather be able to put all my shmups and all my fighting games together than to have to go scrolling past splatoon and the NES online app every time I want to play a different one I havn't booted in a while

it's not top to bottom horribly designed, it's not hard to use or forcing people to use it differently than standard UIs, it's just missing incredibly basic and standard features
they did the absolute bare minimum for a modern UI and then never updated it once
not my screenshot buy my all games screen looks similar
it's trash

You haven't played Your Turn To Die yet, /vg/? Why? If you liked Danganronpa and Zero Escape, be sure to give this free jap indie game a try. You can even play this on your browser and phone, but some puzzles and minigames have been reported to be more difficult without a mouse. Currently the game is up to chapter 2 part 2, and you have about 7~10 hours of playtime available depending on your reading speed.

Chapter 3's first part is out in Japanese, but untranslated still. Be careful not to spoil if you know about it.

I just finished tyranny for the third time on the hardest settings possible (new game + lets you keep powering up the same character over multiple plays). I also enjoyed divinity: original sin. Looking for recommendations on another CRPG that is similar to either of those. Doesn't have to be a fantasy setting, but an in depth spell system is a plus.

Great game. Definitely check it out. But be aware that it was released in a pretty broken state and never really got fixed since the company went under, so you'll need to install the unofficial patch before playing.

Alright this game is fun as shit I think I might like it more than the first one. The non linearity works in its favor and for someone like me that doesnt usually take to open world games much this ones is just condensed enough
Carving out a path that goes against the given on in dashes is really fun.
and the more movement upgrades you unlock the funner it gets.
The game has a teleport system but why bother. Its nice they included it but I haven't used it once and can't imagine other players use it often when getting around is this fun.
And I feel like he colors arent as blinding as they were in the first one, the whites dont feel like you're staring at a lamp for an hour even though everything still stands out well.

I am happy to hear that youre enjoying yourself. Ive been kinda worried about trying that game.

Right now I'm playing Yakuza Zero after slogging through asscreed II. I feel really good playing a game that's actually interested in entertaining me. Every asscreed I've ever played just leaves me feeling molested and violated. Yakuza is really nice. Only complaint is I couldnt really figure out which version to start with, because the steam titles are kind of confusing. So I went with 0, because its the smallest number.

I prefered the first one myself. I traded ME 2, it wasnt bad I just didnt feel it like the first. Ive got Yakuza remastered on PS4, its awesome but the end game boss is brutal, I got really far then he kicked my ass and I need to level up and do the whole final building again, damn good game though.

Which games do you think are the most OVER rated?

Deus Ex was never that good

Mass Effect 2 I didnt even know was supposed to be good. That game was a real steaming pile of shit and proof that you don't need to make good games, only get the combined forces of soulless corporate power with casting couch Hollywood agents.

>Do you really not understand why anybody would enjoy anything about Journey?

I'm judging it as a video game. From that perspective, no I don't understand why anyone would like such an awful game where the main mechanic is just holding forward to keep walking. I understand some people might like it because it's "art" or whatever, but you could tape a banana to a wall and call that art so that doesn't really mean much.

It's like people don't understand that you might want some gameplay in your game. Even death stranding has more gameplay, and it's still a walking simulator.

I think we should differentiate between games and interactive movies. Games involve challenges that must be overcome in order to progress. Interactive movies simply require you to make a decision or press a button in order to continue. Here's a half decent litmus test: If an autofire controller can complete the media in question, it is not a game.
