Gex sucks dude

Josiah Peterson

Oh, and Chrono Trigger should be listed as SNES, which is better than the PSX port as it has instant loading.

You had to have grown up in the early 90s to get it, tbh.

Gex 1 is okay

Nathaniel Jackson

No it sucks, nostslgia doesn't make a game good. The camera sucks, controls suck and evrey line Gex spouts is a cringy outdated popculture reference

Ryan Adams

Not the original re or it's ds port

nostslgia doesn't make a game good
Of course not, the good gameplay make it good.
The camera sucks
The camera is no worse than any other 3d platformer. Set it to Manual.
controls suck
Nope, they're very tight. The real problem is that on OG hardware, the game has constant heavy FPS drops which make the controls feel slippery. Use a proper emulator like Beetle PSX, enable CPU overclocking, and you'll be playing at a solid 30fps with none of those control-shitting frame drops.
le cringe XD
Like I said, you had to be there.

I'd argue that unironically hating Dana Gould is the epitome of "cringe", my young friend.

I've played pretty much all the classic PC games, I can't think of any I haven't. Only two really had any staying power and that's thief 1 & 2. It's interesting to see how such a historied platform has such a shit catalog of games.

thats bullshit and you know

Kayden Cooper

It's a fucking travesty, I know. But the rest of the game is so beautiful.
No FF6
Chrono Cross
<GEX
Everything else is good though.

It's interesting to see how such a historied platform has such a shit catalog of games
What games do you like then?

Anthony Green

yo! noid 2
That was made less than a month ago. Why are you shilling that in every "retro games" thread?

THIS NIGGER KNOWS HIS SHIT OP, LISTEN TO HIM

It's not even worth me posting after based user came through
Will never be friends with based user who has almost the exact same taste in games as me

All I can add is that along with the Castlevanias he posted, you'll need some Castlevania Bloodlines, and Castlevania Chronicles.

Even the Asia/Pacific physical copy has Reset removed if you're playing via the English script. Not sure why Capcom keeps opting to not relicense the song for westerners (then again, it's fucking Capcom, so that might be the answer in itself; too cheap to even give us a native physical release of the PS3 version anyhow).

Elijah Reyes

All 3D zelda's outside Wind Waker
Play Wind Waker too nigger. It's probably the easiest of the Zeldas, but its one of the best nonetheless.

Jason Watson

I was wondering the same thing. I grew up exclusively with Nintendo consoles. What are some games on other consoles that I can enjoy, or would most of them require that I grew up with them? Basically just give me a list of the Playstation, Xbox, and PC games worth playing.
